I'm still hopeful we'll see an NHL season, and it will start in December.

The delay has been very lame, but it probably benefited the Canucks more than we'll know.

Edler, Kesler, Garrison, these guys will log a lot of minutes for this team, and they've all been on the shelf. They're healing, and will be much closer to ready than if the season had started in October.

Daniel Sedin came off a serious head injury that clearly still bothered him in the post-season. What if a full 82 season did him in? The shortened season and delayed start only helps.

The Canucks are President Trophy winners in back-to-back seasons. We're usually on fire in March/April. Now, assuming we still get going in December, May/June will feel like March/April to the team, and we'll be ready to rip it up!

you could argue that as a team with the fewest players playing in europe, we are going to be a step behind conditioning wise

Watch Bowness somehow mess up Tampa Bay's already amazing 2 powerplay units...he'll probably tell Stamkos to do drop passes from centre ice, take him out from the faceoff dot, and place him infront of the goalie :lol:

Maybe. On the other hand, have you ever seen those NHL teams that play their exhibition games overseas, then come back to start the season? They usually lose the first few games. Plus, with all the travel our team does, the extra rest is a positive.

Exactly, if the season is cancelled then it is a complete disaster and takes away a year from a team in it's contending prime. The more chances they get the better. A shortened season may help though, yes.

Exactly, nothing to gain by losing the whole season. A shortened season would probably help the Canucks every year based on when they peak. So that's the silver lining, but it's getting thinner and thinner as time passes. I really don't think a deal will get done now if they haven't been able to by this point.

If the Canucks won a cup in a shortened season, the fans of other teams would claim that it doesn't count. Haters gonna hate.

I think our guys would be slow starters, but would easily get into the playoffs and maybe peak at the right time (for a change).

The only team who will have an advantage IMO if they do have a half season, will be the Edmonton Oilers. Half their team is playing together in the AHL, not on separate teams like many other players, so they will have tons of chemistry together and be ready for games unlike all the other teams.

I agree with OP. Canucks have played a lot of hockey over the past couple of year. Last year's playoff vs LA they looked tired and unable to put in effort to get to the finals again.

I said something like this a while back. I think the Canucks will benefit most by being healthy and rested when the season starts.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

Does anyone ever bash the devils or marty brodeur for the cup win in 95? Ya theyve won 2 more after that but even before no one bashed them. Theres no asterysk next to their cup win in the record books.

A cup is a cup, every team will play the same amount of games in a shortened season.

i think a short season would probably be the best chance for the Canucks we are still a great elite team in the league and have just as good of a shot as anybody regardless who is in our goal I think if the season starts december we are a force and could win the presidents trophy again and maybe just maybe a Stanley Cup, but i still do want hockey right now lol

I don't see the season beginning in Dec, more like Jan, if at all... Sorry, but I don't see no silver lining. I only see a saddened world with out hockey right now... Although, if the season does start late then I see our players being very rusty.. And we will make the post season, but not as one of the top teams this time. Only upside is I see us finally getting over that hump from last year and playing our hearts out. But who knows, only time will tell... *sigh*

Our window to win the cup closes after next year. .I don't beleive Kesler can be that number one guy. And I dont see any prospect centers that are tearing it up in our organization. We really need to move Lou for a blue chip top 2 future centerman.

The only hockey that we are going to be able to watch in December is the World Junior tournament on TSN, and perhaps the world cup of hockey. Canada is going to have some great teams this year! Go Canada Go!
