The Canucks plan is playing out perfectly - intentionally throwing the road games to win game seven back in BC.
But I am surprised they are doing it so convincingly. I would have thought you could just have the goalie throw the game (and man he's doing a heck of a job), but the whole team is really getting into it! From coaches leaving goalies in for 15 week goals, to star players taking rookie penalties, to tough guys letting themselves get knocked over by opposing players like they were cheap bowling pins, everyone is doing their part to throw the road games! It's very impressive to see the commitment to futility, just to play game seven on home ice.
AV is doing a spectacular job implementing the management team's strategy, code named "suck for seven". And good for the team to get behind the coaches plans to sell the failures. But to lose by so many goals? Isn't that a little over-kill? Wouldn't one or two goals suffice? Oh well, who am I to question a plan that is working so well.
