Edmonton had the best last year as well.....did them no good.    Our young guys can hack it, but schedule and overwork = injury no matter what.

They are getting all the teams that play us first. We just end up being the first game when teams do western road trips.

I’ve yet to see a schedule released that has ever favored the Nucks. Ever.

Is it a coincidence the Nucks have consistently finished the year in the top five most injured man games lost?

The thing that pisses me off is bad schedules are unnecessary. The league could easily even up schedules throughout the league. Traveling km’s, back to backs and a variety of other factors could easily be evened out, but the old boys club would never allow it.

It’s all just evidence of a league that is fixed from top to bottom. I know every one hates hearing that, but when you look at how many levels of manipulation that can and are applied, it’s undeniable in my opinion that this league is absolutely controlled and coerced. At the end of the day, it’s not a sport, it’s just entertainment.

We’re not cursed, when it comes to the schedule anyways. The rest? Maybe.

The truth is, Vancouver is just not that important in the big scheme of things. If a schedule like Vancouver’s was applied to the Rangers, Bettman would be fired. For all the money Aqua has, it just doesn’t have the same pull as the influence of the old boys club, which is basically eastern teams. It’s a tough pill to swallow, I know, but that’s what it is.

The best things the Nucks can do is hire sleep specialists, trainers and nutritionists and collect as much info on travel, travel effects and remedies and try to get in front of the problem. Every player on the team should have a smart watch on at all times.

I know it sounds kooky, but the one time the Nucks had the least amount of injuries in the last fifteen years was 2011, the year Gillis brought in the sleep doctors. That’s proof enough for me, and it doesn’t even count against the cap.

 Well when you look around, we still are the best city on the continent.. despite insane housing prices and a city government that is so nuts, it's food for a comic book.

so our team forever sucks.. sort of... and if I remember right, in 2011 half the team was in the hospital by game 2round 4... but yeah, we are treated like shit. Like to see Montreal get stuck like that..

I would still love to see an all Canadian NHL.. Keep the teams we have and add Saskatoon, Regina, Maybe Red Deer.. and 3 more in the East, and no Americans can be n the board of directors, etc... dare to dream, lol

 92f on my back porch today. Phew!


 BTW Where's Nicky??

When the Canucks were good. Our schedule was being helped by the league. I remember them going over it all back in 10/11 and us getting our travel time greatly reduced. But they arent going to favor a bad team. Especially a canadian one. With the dollar at whatever bs low it's at right now. Only the Oilers and Leafs will get league help.

1/ Gillis brought the sleep doctors in when he got hired in 2008

2/ That 2010-11 team that went to 7 games in the finals had only 4 players play all 82 games:

- Henrik
- Daniel
- Kesler
- Hansen

If that's your idea of a healthy team then I'm glad that you aren't the team doctor.

http://www.espn.com/nhl/team/stats/_/nam...asontype/2

The worst example I saw of injuries was 2007-08 year where the Canucks had a ton of injuries on defense and Luongo's wife was going through a difficult pregnancy forcing Luongo to fly to Florida to visit his wife when he had a couple of days off and a crappy backup. I recall that GM got fired.

The season prior to that Canucks won their division, set a team record for points and went to the second round of the playoffs to face a powerful Ducks team that won the Cup.

Long story short, when have we NOT had injuries?

We've always been a high injury team and like any employer I'm sure they've looked into how to resolve it.

Some of it cant be helped. But maybe it has to do with the travel. The facility. The places they stay. The amount they do or dont practice.

I'd def be investing money in trying to lower the injuries. But maybe there is nothing that can be done.

Just a couple points...

I realize Gillis brought the sleep experts in before 2011, but for something that is not mainstream, it took a couple of years research to really start getting it right. I wished they had continued that program.

Also, I'd like to point out that despite it being one of our healthiest years in the last two decades, all that really means is we didn't make the top five. Finished tenth I believe.

For the record, I'm glad I'm not the team dr. either, can't stand the sight of blood.

Dog days of summer, what can I say, a little entertainment.

The bottom line is we're saying the same thing. The Canucks get injuries, so do other teams. Statistically, the Nucks seem to consistently get a lot of them. The only way to combat this is to create a wealth of depth, and spend every nickel researching ways to minimize them. Lord knows, were not gonna get any help from the league, we gotta find a way to handle it internally.

To be fair.

When Gillis came in he made a ton of very good changes. He got Aqua to increase the Drafting budget and hire more scouts for more rural area's. (takes time for this to pay off too)
and think Benning is taking advantage of some of this. (No it didnt help Gillis draft). 

He got them to upgrade the room and the equipment. I've been down in the dressing room and stuff it's actually kinda nice. (got to see the weight room but due to possible naked NHL players weren't allowed in the other room). 

He did do some very good things

Vancouver is a West Coast team. There will be travel.

Suck it up. Or move the team to Cleveland. Grin

Hey Lime,

Chew on this. 

When your rivals within the division Edmonton, Calgary, Vegas, Los Angeles, Anaheim have by FAR a better schedule than the Canucks when they are in the west as well it's not a good thing. We can't change geography but the schedule could be accommodated to somewhat account for that. They've done it for every other team in the division including the Sharks (to a lesser extent) who also have a more favorable schedule. 

How would you like it if the Habs had the same discrepancy within the division to that extent?

Please retract your post Sas because there are inaccuracies in your post. I'd be happy to point them out but I don't want this thread circumvented as you stated at the end of your post but you listed some inaccuracies well before that. So I will give it a day before I respond to what listed if your Gillis post is still up or sooner if anyone else chimes in about this subject before then. I'm more than happy to do so but as you said, let's just stick to the topic of this thread.  So I leave it up to you.

Well I don't know what stoner is saying, his team has VERY similar travel and injury stats. I guess he's learned to suck... it up?

Imagine if eastern teams had to break up western road trips into 2-3 games per swing, interrupted only to play a game in Florida. How easy would it be to make eastern teams just even up Km's travelled?

I'm not against travel, I'd just like to see the rules applied evenly.

Nipsy, that isn't realistic to do. It's just geography. What the NHL could do is give fewer games where teams play 5 games in 7 days when they have to cross MULTIPLE time zones. That goes for east or west. It will NEVER even up but we can minimize. Just look at the Oilers and the Canucks at the opposite end with favorable schedules this season.

Hey, we weren't going to win the division or even come close to a playoff spot unless we have minimal injuries while our top 9 forwards and our top 6 d-men have career seasons. One can only hope. This schedule may land us a 2nd Hughes brother.
