If NHL 12 has taught me anything, it is that I can win the Cup, trade everyone for the top draft picks and then sign all of the free agents. This is why people on CDC are so impatient. If it works on the PS3, it has to work in life. My answer is both.

id rather win the presidents and lose early playoffs than be the joke of the league like the oilers and have all your fans embarressed to cheer for you....just my 2 cents making playoffs is always better then golfing while other teams play the real hockey of the year..GO CANUCKS GO!!!

I really hope there isn't a lockout.

I can't fathom any more extra time topics like this than we have to.

Answer: Making the playoffs gives you some sort of chance to win a cup. That is the goal, not tanking a season and getting a skunker draft pick.

If we won game seven against Boston this thread would not exist.

Damn.

QUOTE (bugmo @ Jul 23 2009, 12:09 AM) And you are an idiot who can't see things for the way they are. It's people like you who make it seem okay for the canucks to have a non playoff making team every year. Gillis supporter go jump off the Patullo.

This was said to me and it makes me laugh everytime I read it.

Our team would have to take to the ice blind folded to finish last so there is no way on earth that could happen.

No team should be able to get more than one No 1 draft pick in any 5 years.
It is a scandal that the Oilers have achieved it 3 years in a row. It is an abuse of the system.

I've been a fan since I was 8 years old in '84. I had a Tanti jersey. :towel:

We are not Oiler fans.

Also of course in hindsight I rather have the 1st pick then the 26th pick, after losing int he 1st round, but theres no way of seeing this, or knowing what will happen in the season. Again we are not the Oilers, or oiler fans.

I take keeping a competitive team.

 

Well, I , I feel very good about this draft, but I, I think, potentially you know were gonna have 3 or 4 NHL players out of this group, ummmm, you know like we are not going to prejudice to were they are from.

I would always prefer the team ices the best possible team with highest compete level. I would rather the Canucks never win a cup but remain competitive than tank in the standings for 1 overall picks. As dangerous as the Oilers could be one of these years; I would prefer not to sit around and have to watch the Canucks play sub .500 hockey. So painful!

Utter crap. And an utter crap objective: "finish last"!

You want to win every game, every period, every shift, every faceoff, every puck battle, every fight; whatever troll, I guess you just reeled me in too.

I take it you have not actually played the game.

I imagine you now, sneaking onto the ice with your Patrick Kane cape and glasses, "C'mon guys, let's lose!"

that really offends me.I always try my hardest and so should evreyone.I just suggested a intresting discution material to see all the opinions.
