Well I saw this a couple days ago, and they have the predictions up for next years stanley cup odds, and the Canucks are right up there again.

-The top three favorites listed were ousted in the first round of the playoffs this year.

-Seven teams have identical 10-1 odds as the second favorites, an indicator of the parity in the NHL.

-The Ducks, Sabres and Lightning are all listed at a respectable 20-1 despite none of them making the playoffs this year.

-The Devils are listed at 30-1 despite making the finals.

-Next to the Canucks at 10-1, the Jets have the lowest odds for any Canadian team at 40-1.

hmm this is a curious statement.. you dont see anything that indicates this team will win next year even though weve won 2 back to back presidents trophys.. what did you see last year that indicated the kings winning the cup this year?


And the Bruins had the exact same team except with a certain Seguin playing phenomenal, how did that turn out for the Champs? Would you bet against the Bruins making it to the finals again? I dont think I would...

If history has proven anything it's how little regular season stats correlate to winning the cup. The President's Trophy has been handed out 26 times and only 7 of those times has the team that won it gone on to win the cup. Moreover, look at a team like SJ. They're almost always stellar in the regular season but just can't get it done in the playoffs. They've had some pretty stacked teams too over the years but always fail.

So yeah, I stand by my comment that I don't see anything that indicates that this team will win next year. I mean it certainly could happen if we get a lot of luck, AV learns how to coach in the playoffs, and if our players actually step up their game consistently then yeah it might happen. But with the current team we have, I just don't see it. I still have faith in Gillis though so hopefully he'll make some good moves this summer that will better this team because we sure need it!

I hate the "this is our year" crap. We hear it every season, and it's never actually come true. That's because there's no such thing as destiny or "our year". The players have to earn it, just like everyone else.

how about we just say nothing and watch next year and see how it goes? just blindly saying "next year is our year" at the end of every season gets a bit redundant after a while

"Let's see how it goes"?

"'94 and '11 were our years...we're screwed"?

For the love of God can we let the two freaking Presidents Trophy's go!!!!!!! They're absolutely meaningless, especially at this point!!! Last I heard they do not have a parade for the Presidents Trophy, the captain of the Presidents Trophy winning team does not have his image rising the Presidents Trophy overhead on the Hockey Night in Canada intro and whenever someone asks who was the NHL Champion last season NO ONE asks "Do you mean regular season or playoffs?"

Let the Presidents Trophy go and let AV go along with them.
