VANCOUVER, CANADA - NOVEMBER 17:   Businessman Francesco Aquilini answers questions during a press conference announcing his family?s investment group buying half of the Vancouver Canucks on November 17, 2004 at General Motors Place in Vancouver, Canada. Aquilini, head of the Aquilini Investment Group, a commerical and residential real estate company based in Vancouver, purchased a 50 percent interest in the NHL team from present owner John McCaw.

Yes that’s you Canuck ownership and management.  Guess what, there is interest in the preseason games and surely you can afford to spend some of the profit you are making off us fans, on at least some live or even delayed, internet streaming of the games. I mean, if that’s would you advertise on your site, then provide it, but don’t say “it’s not available in your area”.

Is this another in a long list of Shaw Cable technical blunders, if that's your provider? Who does your marketing anyways?

This is what makes the NHL so “Mickey Mouse” at times, trying to make like the NFL, but dropping the ball on further exposure to its product. So what if the Canucks “Livewire” looks herkey jerkey, its better than trying to visualize something off a radio broadcast. I thought in this era we had progressed further than this. Give me a break!

It would have been great to watch the Canucks destroy San Jose, a team that it took two seasons to beat (last season), even if it is preseason. Sergei Shirokov, who I have followed since training camp has now two goals and added two assists last night, leads the Canucks in scoring and Cody Hodgson with his first goal, has a huge amount of fan interest this year. So show us, that's what helps drive sales!

The Sedins (seven points) obviously sparkled last night and Dave Scatchard (a goal), who is a long shot to make the team, well guess what Nucks management, we want to see it, not read about it. I mean the papers do not even have the box scores of the game, how pathetic is that!

I can see that Cody Hodgson went off at 7:16 of the second (game misconduct), the same time that Shark’s tough guy Jody Shelley went off with a game misconduct. Does that mean Hodgson got into a fight with Shelley, which I doubt?

Andrew Raycroft played the whole 60 minutes and stopped 27-of-29 shots, I don’t know about you, but I’m interested. There were three fighting majors, so mothers and kids cover your ears, I would have liked to see Nuck’s Labrie and Desbien's effort, which is still part of the game, as they try and earn that tough guy spot and maybe replace Darcy Hordichuk.

In conclusion, I’m P.0.’d, so how about treating us fans like the paying customers and supporters we are of this Nucks team, and “show us our team!”
