15 ways the Canucks’ 9-1 loss to the Ducks could have been worse

Let’s face it, the Canucks’ 9-1 loss to the Ducks was absolutely awful and stands as one of the most lopsided defeats in franchise history. But, as bad as it was, it could have been a lot worse.

You might be asking, “How can that be possible?” Well, hypothetical person, you should just be patient and read the rest of this post. You should have figured out from that lede and the title of this post that we here at Pass it to Bulis were about to offer a list of ways the game could have been worse.

I Watched This Game: Canucks at Anaheim Ducks, January 15, 2014

This was an epic disaster. How bad was it? Imagine the movie 2012 as a hockey game. It was like that. A good ensemble cast and a big budget sunk by mind-numbing stupidity.

But here’s the thing — and this won’t be a popular or even understandable opinion — I don’t think the Canucks were that bad in this game. I won’t try to tell you that the Canucks played well, by any means, though there were some good performances hidden in the mire, but the 9-1 score makes the game look a lot worse than it actually was.

The other point of view would be that the 9-1 score is what that game actually was, but that just sounds confusing. Is what it was? That’s just mixing tenses, which doesn’t make any sense. Don’t be daft. I watched this game.
