Short season: blip on the radar.... Regroup for the full season and use the short year to grab and stockpile on high draft picks??? Perhaps an opening to groom replacement players for the soon to be retired Sedins?

If its a full season forget it. But playing 3 month of hockey when all the other teams are well rested? Why not use the short year to the teams best advantage and turn it into glass half full situation. While the twins have 5 years maybe left... Why drop out on potential high picks ? You wouldn't want McKinnon?

Teams don`t think like random dudes do. Every player out there would come out firing 100% every night whether the season was 10 games or 100.

No fricken way! Why would you write off a season just because it's shortened?

If anything it may benefit the Canucks. It would give Kesler more time to recover, plus the Canucks always seem to go on a tear halfway through the season. Which would end up being around playoff time if the season started in January.

This team aint tanking until they start to suck.

Shorter season means a far less grueling road to the Stanley Cup, so no! We go balls to the wall and try to bring the cup home.

If there's a shorter season the odds of the Canucks winning the cup go up by quite a bit.

The biggest reason we haven't been able to win it all is consistency throughout the playoffs and a main reason for that is because we peak early in February and are too banged up and bruised by the playoffs to perform at that same level.

With an abbreviated season, hopefully our peak will match up with the playoffs and our players will be much fresher and less fatigued to win the Cup.

Our current Canucks seem to hit their stride around the 60-70 game mark. It would almost be an ideal situation if we lost 20-30 regular season games due to the lockout.

Never tank it. I hate the idea of just giving up and intentionally losing games.

Anyone know what this draft is like? Not that I am saying tank, but all I know for sure, with the lottery chances are, we will be drafting "higher" then 26. Is this a strong draft? Incase there is a lock out that is... but a shorten season will benefit us big time. The most traveled team in the NHL......
