Gettin' into the meat of the sched-I feel this pack of games is very crucial. Will prob tell us whether we have a contender for this year...

3x Clb, 2x Minn & Col, singles Nash, Det, StL, Phx, & LA.

Lots of winnable games here, & a score or two to settle. Takes us to late March, should we waste this opportunity, I wonder if it'll affect MG's deadline-approach.

I'll say 8-2-2, but this will be tough with our centre/ Rh-D situation. We badly need a few unlikely guys to STEP UP & play to their contract's worth. Yeah, especially the hunting bible-quoter!

Good luck boys! GCG!!

I don't know how 3 games against Columbus will tell us anything other than that the Canucks really suck if they lose.

Let Canucks management know you want King Richard Brodeur in the Ring of Honour with no further delay! He's been retired for 25 years!

But yeah, we do need to see if this Canucks of the last 12 games or so (crap) is the real Canucks...

I say they struggle .500 and the team waits for a big deal that doesn't happen at the deadline

Honestly I expect 18 of possible 24 points... all weak struggling teams
We have to make a strong statement

The NHL is a fixed old boys club. I've come to acceptance with that and just watch for entertainment. The 2011 & 2012 Canucks are champs in my books. Go Canucks Go!

Well, if they were to really rock for the next three weeks, they'd basically have a stranglehold on 3rd place; then hopefully get healthy with sorted lines in April.

I'd speculate it also may decide whether we keep the 'tender-tandem, or finally go with one.

Win the easy ones and be happy with the points. Getting a good spot in the playoff run is important. Save your best for the important games.

Turns out they went 8-3-1, missed it by a point! Schneids came in & saved the day, with that 6 game stretch.

Despite losing the past couple, I suspect people are more optimistic early-April, than we were early-March.

We've got a dozen more, with Roy joining in & Kesler back soon. games #37-48, I predict 9-2-1 to claim the NW for the last time.

You got me dumbfounded for a bit there... for the last time, as in forever?????? Then I realized the new alignment kicking in.

Those are all tough teams, there aren't any gimmes in the league anymore. CBJ isn't the pushover it used to be, MINN is arguably better then us with the addition of Pominville. I wouldn't be surprised if we went 2-8-2

Really? Distracting trade deadline finally over, 2 more top 6 centers suiting up sooner rather than later... how about 8-2-2.

This upcoming homestand and five-game trip are key...none of those teams are in playoff position except St. Louis for one game, I expect us to get everyone pulling the same way now that the deadline distractions are done, we shouldn't give up more than a couple points the next eight games. The homestand against Detroit, Anaheim and Chicago will be a great bellwether for the playoffs. Might be wise to sit the important players against Chicago, they are a cheap and dirty bunch down there and we don't want another Keith incident, it'd send a message to the League if we sat the Sedins in that game, it was like when they went after Adam Banks in the Mighty Ducks, it was.

I like that they play the easier teams first, with some tougher tests just as the PO's approach. Hopefully Kesler can get playing well.
