THN predicts Canucks to take The Cup this year

Anybody who watched the team play this season knew they weren't going anywhere or winning anything meaningful.

Probably easier to guess the next Cup winner than to guess the Canucks' starting lineup. LA last year perfectly summed up how meaningless the regular season really is. I really don't care where the Canucks finish in the top 8, just so long as they enter the Playoffs on fire, with a hot goalie, flying forwards, and pissed off defencemen.

It's nice to see the media with positive predictions about the Canucks.

Knocking on wood here but shouldn't they be saying whoever beats the Canucks will go onto win the Stanley Cup. Once again knocking on wood here.

Right now, if the season and playoffs were to continue with the current rosters, the Kings would win the Cup again, with Carolina and Tampa Bay probably coming pretty close. These teams are both built for the playoffs, especially their top-6, deep defences and goaltenders.

The Canucks have a lot to do if they want to be considered contenders. We will not go far without more defensive depth and without a proper 3rd line offensive center who can put up 30-40 points. Our forwards have been bullied by big, physical defences in the last 2 playoff rounds and mustered up little offence, and our defence has been banged around by giant forwards and given up golden scoring opportunities.

In our last 10 playoff games the Canucks have been one of if not the worst playoff team lately and played absolutely disgustingly. We have a lot to fix up.

You think EA is great at predicting because they picked a few obvious choices? It was fairly obvious that LA was going to win.

When the Sedin's and Kesler were struggling, we gave a lot more puck and ice time to Hodgson in January. During that time we played some great hockey; won games to kill Detroit's home win streak, beat Boston in Beantown, San Jose and Anaheim in tight games. We looked pretty good at that time, and could have been killer when some of our big gun's came out of their funk?

And both goalies won massive games, stole victories and Edler, Hamhuis and Bieksa were all scoring. There was a time last year when we were dominant!

But it was only a month...

Anybody who watched the team play this season knew they weren't going anywhere or winning anything meaningful. We're not the only ones who got "annihilated" by the Kings, who are clearly not an "eighth seed."

It's the same result in the end, is it not?

Mate, your usually credible even when I disagree with you. Yer making us Aussie Canuck fans look bad here.

Dude how old are you? Let me guess 18? 19?

Wake Up Vancouver, perhaps there's a reason VanCity is getting a bad rap from fans around the league, perhaps its true that the fans are just a bunch of little whining babies.

This team may not look like a great contender right now. If we get a servicable player or two in the Luongo deal and Schneider plays up to his capabilities, I think we could surprise some people and take the cup.

Beginning of season predictions are garbage. How could anyone factor injuries, trades, rookie progress, ups and downs of players, coaching, travel, health? You can't, it's all speculation and guessing. That being said, I think there is some merit to short term predictions for a 7 game series, as long as all these above factors are know. I'll have to admit, EA sports has been pretty good at those shorter term predictions.
