THN predicts Canucks to take The Cup this year

122 posts in this topic

I received my Hockey News annual in the mail and noticed that the editors of THN are predicting the Canucks will beat Pittsburgh to win the Stanley Cup.

They are comparing the Nucks recently playoff losses to those from Detroit a few years back before the Wings won their first cup in the modern era.

Should this prediction be viewed as a pleasant surprise or a jinx?

(Sorry if this repeats, but I did a topic search for THN predictions and only came up with fantasy point total projections).

I read THN the other day and they said Pittsburgh is to take the cup... maybe it was a different magazine...

Didn't they (or someone else) predict Vancouver to beat Pittsburgh in 7 last year?

Stupid predictions.

People still voting for Pittsburgh after that catastrophe last season? They have done nothing to address that putrid defense of theirs and they lost Staal (yes, they replaced him with a solid 3C but J. Staal > Sutter any way you spin it). Oh, and their wingers (aside from Neal) are nothing special.

I wouldn't bet on us either. We need to make some upgrades for sure.

I think they predicted Chicago last year. Or was that EA? I'm not sure.

Pretty sure it was EA that predicted Chicago over Pittsburgh...they were a little off the ball this past year.

THN is always correct :bigblush:

Canucks for a Cup will need to add Doan + Arnott + mathias/versteeg + Gudbranson , that happens i like our chances. plus an enforcer. a total animal.

this Doan decision is holding everything else up.

Hopefully Gillis knocks it out of the park ....we need him to...we are still a major pieces from being real contender.

The Penguins have been the most overrated team in hockey for the past few years. They got a heck of a lot worse this year and I don't see them making it out of the first two rounds. I also don't see the Canucks winning the cup unless if they are able to stay completely healthy for the duration of the playoffs. Right now, the Rangers are the favourites.

Wait a minute,

I thought a few threads ago someone said we should blow up the team and rebuild before it's too late.

Joking aside all we as fans can ask for is to be in the conversation as one of the top contenders.
