Another left a sarcastic comment for the Canucks’ new coach that read, “Rick has officially witnessed the real Canucks in action.”

This fan talked about not being a fan of the management, saying, “My question is, did canucks management literally think Bruce just sat there and let the Canuck’s players do whatever they wanted without telling them what to do, with no game plan? This team has major problems no matter who the coach is. Tocchet is not the answer.”
