My Predictions: 

 

For Canucks:

-Bo is named Captain

-Canucks have a slow start but then mesh and continually gain momentum through the rest of the season. 

-Most players have a career year as they fight to maintain their positions. 

-Canucks make or miss the playoffs by two points. 

-We do not win the draft lottery (If Eligible)

-The games are exciting and uptempo. Questionable defense and goal tending makes the games close.

-Benning makes three trades. One trade is for a defensemen to steady our back end and involves a prospect over rated by many. Each trade causes CDC to erupt in typical fashion

-We get one extra pick for the 2019 draft

-Benning goes off the board with his first round pick

 

Other teams:

-Flames miss the playoffs

-Sens miss the playoffs

-Knights miss the playoffs

-Canadiens miss the playoffs

-Leafs can once again do no wrong

-Oilers make the playoffs

-Jets make the playoffs

-Capitals get eliminated in the first round

 

I know preseason was bad but I believe the team will be much better than most expect. Here's hoping they prove me right!

Is industry the same as injury?

After further review, they are indeed NOT the same. 

 

@cory40 had a tough night? Definitely hope I’m wrong about the industry...er, injury.  Just based on probability as players key in on him and take liberties.

Better get this in before tomorrow.

 

Canucks will finish last in the Pacific

Canucks will be second last in the league securing the 4th overall pick

Bo will have a steady season.  55 points. 

Brock will take a step back but still finish with 20 goals

Sven will be traded before year end

Jake will still be a deer in the headlights still scoring 12 goals and 12 assists

EP will have a strong start but fade down the stretch. Finish with 50 points

Defense will be the same as last year and not produce much offence unless trade brings in others. 

Hutton won’t be with the team at year end

Guddy will spend time on injury list 

OJ will be called up after about 2 months and perform adequately 

Goaltending will be bad.  

 

Hopefully i I am wrong but my expectations for this year are low still. Bring on 2020/21

Canucks to get 65 points or less, finish 31/31.

 

Pettersson to score 25-50-75

Brock to get 35 goals

One of Virtanen and Goldy to look like top 6.

 

D-core remains the worst in the league 

OJ to come up full time after Tanev traded in January.

 

Lukas Jasek to be top scorer on Comets and get an extended look at the NHL level by end of year.

 

Debut of QH after college season.

Normally I'm an optimistic voice and last season I genuinely felt the Canucks could challenge for the wild card if healthy.  This year I'm sadly expecting a dumpster fire of a season especially looking at how the team played in the pre-season.  I feel we will finish 30th in the league but there will be some highlights this season including the Canucks beating the leafs at home and drafting #1 to bring Jack Hughes to Vancouver to play with his brother.  Part of me hopes I'm wrong and we sneak into the playoffs this year but I don't see it happening with our current lineup.

Canucks wind up last in the division and another bottom five team overall

Bo and Brock struggle a bit more this season with opponents keying in on them even more

Roughly 26-33 goals for Brock and 20-34 assists

24-27 goals for Bo and 30-33 assists

Elias blows everyone away and wins the Calder

Edler re-signs with the team at some point during the year

Gaudette finishes the year with the Canucks

Juolevi plays 10-14 games as a Canuck thanks to injuries

Canucks 5 predictions:

1. Elias wins the Calder

2. The team struggles mightly, but Horvat proves the glue that keeps the team together. He is given the C in February.

3. Edler is traded before the deadline.

4. OJ comes up due to injuries and plays steady hockey. He reminds us of Edler, but he shows the promise of being more gifted offensively. Makes us excited to see him and Hughes on the PP in the following year. Steady and reliable paired with a future star. 

5. Virtanen nearly doubles his point production over last year, but proves even more valuable as the muscle in defense of his young team mates. He is awarded the A for a few games in recognition.

Canucks Predictions

Goldy leads team in goals scored through until December. Ends with 25. Brock starts slow but ends with 30

Puck Luck sees the team win the home opener against the flames. A high point as we miss the playoffs and finish with the 5th worst record in the league

Elias scores at a regular rate and tops 60 points. Misses out on Calder 

Bo leads team in scoring with a 70 point season

MDZ, Edler and Gagner traded during season for underwhelming returns centered mainly around "B" prospects

Dahlen, Juolevi and Gaudette each play 30+ games for the Canucks

 

Rest of NHL

Surprise teams to miss playoffs - Sharks, Predators and Lightning

Surprise teams to make playoffs - Sabres, Coyotes, Canadiens

Calder - Mittelstadt (matches EP for points but gets playoff boost)

I think this will be the worst Canuck team ever assembled

We will compete with the likes of the 1925 Briuns for low offense and poor defense 1.6 gf - 4.0 ga

or the 2000 Thrashers, 1973 Isles Hopefully better than the 1975 Capitals.

Petterson will shine until he either gets injured or runs out of gas then gets injured.

Brock will suffer sophmore slump

Bo will become more aggitated as the losses pile up and his - soars.

This will be a season to remember ... for all the wrong reasons

50 points will be a stretch for any player and the team

4 OA next June

Canucks begin epic slide in January-March and finish with 74 points.

Horvat and Sutter each only play 40 games.

Lippy becomes the team MVP during the final stretch when the team gets a few rookies into action. 

EP gets 30 games in before an upper body injury derails his season at only 21 points. 

Tanev gets traded for prospects.

Edler does not waive.

Demko plays 5 games.

Think the canucks will have a rough start to the season. To be expected with all the new faces and sub par goaltending. Once team gets used to each other we will see a slight uptick in games won. Figure nucks will be 3rd or 4th worst team. 80 point season.

 

Elias will put up 100 points 25g 75 apples. Wins Calder.

Brock will pot 30g and 25 apples

Bo will put up 60 with a 30x30 season.

Goldobin will surprise with 18g and 25 assists.

Jake will pot 15g and 15 assists.

 

This will be the year canucks finally draft first over all.

Added 80 point season
