King of the ES

The Tide Has Turned in Vancouver: A Prediction

Recommended Posts

Seriously dude...We can complain about a lot of things about our team but as a true fan you have to believe that they will make the playoffs. Coz that's what fans do. We will complain about all the things you have listed but will still rally behind our team to win it all......

What do you want? Props when they don't make the playoffs......

So go ahead complain about all things u feel are wrong but don't give up hope dude.....

Screw that...a Cup's a Cup. This team has been waiting 42+ years for it - "tainted" or not, it's damn time this team won it.

Besides, where are the whiners saying the 95 NJD Cup was also "tainted?"

Worked in Chicago, worked in Pittsburgh. I won't yet say that it's "worked" in Edmonton, but a lot of people are justifiably excited about their future. The places that it hasn't worked is in Columbus and Long Island.

Probably not coincidental that the places that it's been successful are well-run organizations, with good history's, and with good fan support, of which Toronto is all.

Also, "lottery picks" is a bit vague, I'm talking top 1 - 3 picks for 2 - 3 years.

I enjoy the opinions of those that provide alternative views to those of the majority.

The King puts himself out there and as his views are sometimes contrary or different makes him unique and interesting.

The road less travelled is the road I am on so ,yeah,I like his style.

At my age sucking is something that no longer exists in my vocabulary but you go boy,or girl.

I'm fine with trading Hodgson, I'm not fine with trading him for a guy that added nothing to the team in a Cup-contending year at the trade deadline.

Tell that to Smashian Kassian, who my "what if" was directed towards.

Yeah, how'd that work out? Who'd he shut down?

Critical error.

I'm not saying that he's overpaid. I'm saying that it was a bad signing. I'm saying that there's far too much risk - look at his resume, it's practically bare at the age of 28 - for that kind of term.

In all honesty I would not be surprised if the Canucks did miss the playoffs. A shortened season is one where anything can happen. If the Canucks get off to their typical slow start they may not have the time to recover. I think they are still a playoff team mind you, but I don't think it is an impossible scenario to have them stumble this season.

One thing I do agree with is that this team's core players did not look hungry last year heading into the playoffs and they need to be to win the cup. Heart beats this turn the other cheek BS every time.

Sorry King - it doesn't work that way anymore.

The NHL has changed the draft format - they've decided not to reward losing as dramatically as before - now every team that misses the playoffs has a shot.

Actually the fact that it didn't is an amazing "mistake", we trade him for less than full value, he goes elsewhere (say tampa) and makes them a top contender and develops into one of the best in league, and what are we stuck with? Malone and a late 1st?
