We all know it takes Canucks about 10-20 games to settle in, and if that trend continues, they will be looking at last place in the division and possibly in the conference.

My prediction 24-24, come out slow, gain steam towards the end and miss the playoffs. I see the Oilers taking our spot in the division, and don't forget the new and improved Minni.

The days of going far in the playoffs are over, let's face it, this core only went far once. We have way too many holes in our top 6. Namely, who is going to replace Kesler? He won't be back any time soon.

Die hard canucks fan. Just because i am a canucks fan doesn't mean i can't be realistic about the team i follow. I look at things objectively, not through homer glasses.

The Canucks either miss the playoffs entirely, or barely squeak in and get knocked out in the first round. This team is not good enough to be a cup contender as it stands now.

I think the window has closed with this group, but maybe I am a pessimist here.

The kids are probably going to be showing a ton of improvement, I see them losing most games to Canucks/Minnesota/Colorado
I know Colorado sucks but man they put a ton of bruisers on their team, the coilers are going to get banged, and I hope our 4 games with them in a shortened season that we don't get banged up.

and im looking through homer glasses? Last i looked out goaltending and defense are still light years ahead of edmontons. You just think our forwards arent good but that isnt the case at all. We still have one of the top lines in the league and Kesler will be back sooner than you think.

If you're looking at things objectively then objectively explain how the Oilers overtake the canucks in this shortened season.

Oilers are a joke. Get back to us in 5 years. Right now, they are good only at the AHL level.

Kesler was lucky to score 20 this year since the injury to Morrison allowed him to do so.

I doubt Kesler would ever break 15 goals in his career again.

I consider myself warned.

But you have to agree that Calgary now has the best defense in the entire NHL.
