Statement: unsatisfactory

In a game the Canucks probably needed to make a statement in, after losing three of their last four games, the message was frustratingly unequivocal: the Canucks, these days, are almost entirely dependent on the Sedins to generate the offence and for Robert Luongo to stand on his head long enough for them to put a few goals on the board.

Against the top teams in the conference this is evidently not going to be good enough, as last night’s shootout loss to the Detroit Red Wings illustrates.

An unsatisfactory statement, for any Canucks fan with aspirations for a long playoff run this spring.

Priority #1 for GM Dave Nonis must be the acquisition of a second line offensive threat, if only to diversify the production a little.

Even 47 saves from your goaltender is not going to win you hockey games every night.
