Why not a fresh start?

73 posts in this topic

With a lockout threatening the entire 2012-2013 season, can anyone honestly say that the Canucks can again be a top team in the WCF, let alone be in the finals?

We all saw what happened last playoffs. the Canucks not skilled enough or tough enough to hang with the big boys. Let's face it, even if we had beaten LA, other teams would not have been a cake walk either, which is what most of you were thinking at the time.

I suggest that we blow up the team and start fresh. Trade the twins and get the first and second round picks. Stockpile on talent as much as we can. Hire a strong scouting team to find us players that are NHL Ready, meaning that they will be drafted and play right away.

I'm tired of prospects, waiting to see if a player is "Nhl Ready". Look at Edmonton, they have a better future than us. They have good talent, good coaching staff and a great direction. In comparison, look at Calgary, they fluked out to the finals one year, and kept the majority of their players, thinking that by adding what was missing in their previous runs, they can compete again. How bad have they become now?

Sometimes you gotta face the music, and look at the mirror and say, this team is just not good enough. We have 3rd stringers playing on our first and second lines, and we have a coaching staff that refuses to play players that would help win games, rather cares too much about who he likes and does not like.

The lockout should be looked as a blessing for Canucks. It's time to realize what they have and what direction their going, because as of right now, the Canucks don't look very good on paper anymore.

Even if that was the best course of action, Gillis would never do that because he already has stated his intentions and has and still is doing his best to act upon them. Flip flopping on team structure and mentality shows you have no idea what the hell you're doing.

I don't agree with the strategy, but this is still one of the better-written, more discussion-ready topics on this site.

Why not debate the man, instead of berate him? Valid opinion.

You made it that far? I stopped after he asked if anyone could honestly say the Canucks could be a top team in the WCF.

I can honestly say the Canucks could be a top team in the WCF again soon, or be in the finals.

ya of course, let's just keep lying to ourselves and say "there's always next year". That will certainly get the team a cup, much like it has worked so well for Flames.
