just a couple peices here and there, and for the love of god if our coach uses 4 lines in the playoffs we have a pretty decent chance i think. The core players are there. We've got great goaltending and the Sedins both played really well in the playoffs in the past 2 years. It seems with age they are getting better in the post-season :)

Nay.

I doubt this team even returns to the conference finals until 2016.

They will win the cup when they win 16 playoff games in one year. ;)

UInfortunately, the window of opportunity for the Canucks is closing. If the team can't win a Cup before 2015, I think it could be another decade before the right combination of players, opportunity and good luck come together again. It's a difficult league now - every team has good players, and any team can get hot in the playoffs. Winning the conference championship, as we've seen, is no guarantee of anything.

No, I do not see it happening. Vancouver teams never win championships (BC Lions don't count, CFL only has 8 teams).

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Interesting thought. I still think its next year (whenever that will be) or never to win the cup.

the Lions are BC's team. :)
If their championships don't count then none of the SC championships in the 6 team NHL should count either.

If there's a year to win it, it would have been this year. Darn, they're not the President's trophy winner 2 years in a row for nothing. Why, why, why!!!! Aaargh!!! After the first round, there were no Red Wings, Blackhawks, Bruins, Sharks, Penguins! Aaaargh!! I'm still not over it! Imagine Kings or Coyotes representing the west in SCF? Aaargh!
:picard:


yep.the seas parted.
all we had to do was get out of the first round. we couldn't even do that. :picard:

We can. But I'm unsure that we will.

Vancouver Canadians have back to back championships this year and last. Giants won the Memorial Cup in 2007. Lions are defending Grey Cup champs. I mean, they're minor/junior/'second-tier' league teams but other than the Canucks we don't have any teams in the big professional North American sports.

Necropost revival.

The odds of winning seem just more distant. But Gillis has a summer to turn this thing around.

Has losing in the first round, and firing AV swayed your opinion?

I can't see the Canucks (nor any Canadian team) winning the Stanley Cup while Bettman has his way.

There are a lot of Debbie Downers out there. You negative Nancies can go suck a lemon for all I care.


it's fact and reality. We have only gotten worse since 2011. I still don't understand why Gillis didn't have the grapefruits to trade Schneider in 2011 or last year when he would have gotten some really good and helpful pieces. We were trying to win in these years, yet Gillis was too worried about the future.

Can? Yes for sure. they're always a favorite to win the cup, deservedly so. will? well that depends on the changes in personnel, and more importantly in mentality that are made.

Until Gary Bettman is gone, I don't think any Canadian team has a chance in hell of winning the cup. Mark my word.

No freaking chance. This team/franchise is going to get worse before it gets any better. This market is just way too much of a circus right now.

well there's only a few of them, and most of them suck, so it's not that surprising none have won yet. I'll mark your word though. Black, green, blue, or red?
