Willie Desjardins isn't hiding from the fact his employment hinges on results.
"When losses pile up everybody gets on the hot seat," Desjardins said, according to TSN. "I think that's a common thing for the league. And it's a fair thing - it's not unfair. Especially when you're not scoring. We (have to) find ways to score - we know that."
Vancouver has scored four goals across six consecutive regulation losses, and has been shut out in four of its last five games. It ranks second-to-last in shots per game, and is still without a goal from the $36-million investment placed on Loui Eriksson.
The Canucks are, however, one of the top teams in terms of suppressing shots on target, which is a marked improvement from last season when they finished second-to-last.
