Our core is getting older and older.. So yeah I guess tanking would be the most logical thing to do when our Cup window is gradually closing. sarcasm

is this a joke? CDC needs a IQ test

One day some of us will look back on the year and look at the chicago, and most of us will realize that it was a small bump in the road to the cup

I'm pretty sure that, collectively, CDC has roughly the same IQ as a turnip.

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?

Tanking on purpose is morally and ethically wrong and is an embarrassment to hockey. Wtf are you thinking man? Even if we got the first 5 picks in the first round for tanking I still wouldn't want our team to do it, it would be a disgrace to hockey.

Got my hopes up with a worthless post...

Troll. The Sedins are 32. They aren't leaving for Sweden for another five years.

*8 years*

What a terrible idea.

-The team isn't getting any younger, so why waste a precious opportunity at the Cup while we know we can win.
-Why would you tank for a short season, but not for a long season?

Tanking is embarassing to sports and competition in general. Players, fans, owners etc. have something called pride. Teams don't tank even when they're out of the playoffs near draft pick territory, so it would be insane to do it when you have a legit chance at the cup. If the Canucks tanked for a whole year, even though we're contenders, I would quit watching the team. I'm not gonna waste my evenings watching a team that is making no attempt to win whatsoever. And I'm definitely not gonna shell out 70+ hard earned dollars to go watch a game. If the Canucks tanked for a whole year, you would start seeing a lot of empty seats at Rogers Arena.

Thankfully the Canucks aren't actually insane, so this will never happen.

Wouldn't it make more sense to use the shorter season as an opportunity to make another run at the Cup, hopefully after suffering less wear and tear than during a full regular season?

I agree with you. Also it looks like it will not be a deep draft this year.

By the way learn how to spell SHIRIKOV who is this shirakov

Amazingly on his first shift Kassian would have had a breakaway if Kesler knew how to pass. And he still got switched with Weiss. And note it is "Weiss" not "Wise".
