Fast start to a shortened season?

8 posts in this topic

What can the Canucks do to position themselves for a fast start if the season starts in January? Some of their players have been active, but most of their players will not be in game shape. I think the team that has planned in advance for a fast start will be well positioned for early success. Given a shortened season such a start can be critical. What one thing do you think can be done (or has been done) in order for the Canucks to be prepared?

We really just need to make it to the playoffs, then we're golden. Our players won't be as banged up as they usually are, so I really think we can do some damage!

Other than practising together and working out as much as possible I would think the fact they are pro's says it all.

They had better be in the best shape possible and it is certain that they should take their jobs seriously.

Garrison would do well to play with his new playing partner all he could ,but is Eddy going to remain a Canuck?

If we can enter the playoffs, the timing will be.. impeccable.

Almost every year we start DESTROYING in December.

Sure, why not. As long as everyone is healthy. Especially Kesler.

What I'd be worried about is how our first 2 months of the season are always terrible. I think last season we were just above .500 hockey which honestly wouldn't get us in a good playoff position.

Say what you want about "having a good December", the reason the Canucks hit their stride then is because they've already played 2 months of poor hockey and taken time to figure things out. It's not a magical month where they just start playing well, it's because of all the getting used to the game speed.

Canucks are slow starters to any season from coaches to players, so hopefully a one and a half or 2 month slow start doesn't jeapordize our chances. That's about 20 games of poor play, which is about half the season, so as long as the Canucks can tear it up in the final 20-30 games they'll hit their peak in the playoffs and be perfect.
