  1. Edmonton wins -> CDC labels them future champions and Canucks losers -> Edmonton finishes 12th in the conference this year while Vancouver still makes the playoffs
  2. I'm almost certain one of the years we missed the playoffs we went like 8-1 in the pre-season, so I wouldn't worry about it too much.
  3. The fact that the only one that shouldn't have counted actually counted is hilarious (I'm assuming it was intentional). Edit: heh, should have finished the article
  4. Brandon Sutter will wear number 21 next season

    Sutter as good as Forsberg: Confirmed.
  5. Trades that made you sad

    The only team I care about is the Canucks and I hope none of the other Canadian teams ever win a Cup, but...I was sad when Iginla left Calgary. I think that having iconic figures on the other side of a rivalry defines your own team. I feel like Iginla leaving Calgary made the seasons to follow less interesting for Canucks fans. I know he's in Colorado now, but it's not the same.
  6. Trades that made you sad

    Don't hold your breath. Guy is the textbook example of a floater.
  7. "Diving/Embellishment" discussion

    People give me crap about watching soccer because of the diving, in a sport where possession is so much more important than hockey. 90% of the time this is used to draw attention to a legitimate foul. Soccer players get called weak. Yet embellishment in hockey gets a "man that was a smart play to flick his head like that, draw attention to the foul. Anything to get the win." It's such BS hypocrisy.
  8. Remember when Ottawa took Daigle instead of Pronger? Some fans here deserve that to happen to the Canucks the way they idolize tanking.
  9. No Canadian city in their right mind would bid on an NHL franchise with the dollar this low. Quebec sure as hell won't be getting a team until there's a big rebound.
  10. I'm not sure we'll win the division, but all these predictions with Vancouver finishing 12-14th are equally ridiculous.
  11. 2016 free agents Benning is planning to target

    This is who I want. Bring him where he should have gone in the first place.
  12. Predictions - Western Conference Standings

    Heart and soul defenseman who played the worst hockey of his career. Only power forward who played like a power forward 10% of the time who can easily be replaced by rookies and a PKer who has already been replaced by the better Prust. So..what's your point?
  13. Remember 2006?

    It's weird how a shorthanded goal in a meaningless game against Carolina is one of the most vivid and emotional Canucks memories I have. I wasn't even going to bother watching that game.
  14. Predictions - Western Conference Standings

    It will be similar for the Canucks to last year. A win or two either way will move us between 3rd or 10th. I'm expecting a wildcard fight until the last week of the season. 13th? Are you kidding me?
  15. Congrats to your 2014/15 SC champs Chicago Blackhawks!

    This isn't the 70's and 80's, where you could win a Cup simply by existing in the right division, getting a bye in the first round, and smoking during whistles. It is so exponentially harder to win multiple Cups now, it's not even close. 3 in 6 years these days is probably comparable to 5 straight 30 years ago. Come on, Grandpa.
