It Will Be Better To Finish 2Nd In The West

61 posts in this topic

With the standings being the gong show they are, it is in the Canucks best interest to finish 2nd. If we finish 1st and LA manages to beat Chicago we are stuck playing the winner of Detroit / Nashville. If we finish 2nd we would play LA. This is assuming we get out of the 1st round.

There is no easy way to a Stanley cup. Canucks should try to be first in everything!

If LA manages to beat Chicago. You're basing your argument on a "what if".

What if we finish 2nd and Chicago beats LA?

The first and second round isnt really what we need to be worried about. Canucks can beat any team in a 7 game series they just have to bring their A game.

They'll have to defeat a great team in the third round no matter what, might as well get it out of the way before they are all injured and exhausted.

No but there are definetely easier and harder ways. Detroit or Nashville is a harder way. Last year one of the reasons we made it to the finals was that we got to play 2 lower seeded teams. San Jose had to battle it out with Detroit and had nothing left once they reached the conference finals.

Nope. Better to do Ian 1st

Either way, first round is "easier"...

But 2nd and 3rd is Chicago or Detroit/Nashville. No way la or other team in 3rd beats Chicago, sorry.

So better I get top seed so that you have home ice... But it probably doesn't matter that much anyways at this point
