Smoking much?

 

I pick scenario 2. Taking all the details into account, we have lots of unutilized talent, yet we were able to make the finals? To me, that speaks of a team that has already made it, and will probably be healthier in year 2 to win the cup. Scenario 2 says we don't need that 1st OA pick.

A strange hobby, but I like to ponder these crazy things. Two unlikely sequences to wind up this campaign, which one is more palatable?

 

S1 - The wheels fall off. We get a number of injuries reducing key guys from the lineup. Nothing major(complete recovery for all), just misfortunes that'll place guys on IR from 2-6 wks. Slide down the standings, & all of Canada laughs at us. Finish 13th last..basically no-man's-land in the rebuild-realm. But then..lo & behold, we FINALLY WIN the F***ing Lotto(2% chance..or whatever it is?) Woo-hoo!!! Here we sit, with the 1st overall pick in our pocket. 99% of Canada is now insanely jealous :^)

 

S2 - In a spring of PO-upsets, we go on a wild, highly unlikely run. Finish in the 2-slot, hosting Cowtown. Smoke 'em in 5! Then Edmunchuk, who banished the 1st pl. Lost Vegans(they & Winterpeg are WC's). Bounce'em in 6. Unbelievably the Jets emerge from Central, but are beaten up. Still we outlast them in a 7 game, epic thriller. Game 7 OT, Miller from EP & Hughes, in what experts are calling one of the most beautiful OT winners, to ever finish a series.

 

There it is, a Cdn-sweep, all the way to the Finals. We overcome adversity too, with 7 or 8 injuries along the way, we rely heavily on youth/depth on our valiant run. Ironically(for once) almost all of Canada(save bitter Hogtown) fall in love, cheering for our gritty, exuberant cast. Bo, Miller & EP shine, all over 30 pts, after all 4 rds. Jake snipes 14, & OJ is called up & fares brilliantly. Looking like a perfect match with Myers for the coming yrs. On 'tending, both our guys are excellent. With some injuries, they shine & split the wins.

 

The Finals our luck runs dry..although it to is an epic gem. All 6 games go to OT. Their team is perfectly healthy, with brilliant 'tending. Who?..Torts' Jackets..that's who. The small market darling becomes the talk of the league. Green & Torts shake hands after, with honour for both. All NHL cities agree this was a brilliant series, played hard & fair; both sides completely earning the others' begrudging respect.

 

13 home dates..so lots of loot in our pocket. Our cast is higher in demand, so we can easily deal off extra parts at the draft, & be very cap-compliant. We pkg TD & Gaud for a 12th overall pick. Life goes on with complete optimism for 2020-21

 

That's all folks..no adjustments please. Which would you prefer?

 

 

is 1 a Indica and 2 a Sativa ?  or a hybrid

Scenario 1.

 

My liver can't take another losing run and the city can't take another unfortunate event.

No it's more arabica vs robusta, & Juan Baldez has dubbed me Senor Grinder!

i take the Scenario 1 for Lafreniere. With him, we would be in the top 4 teams for years to come, not for only one run.  
stop falling short on SCF... again.

 I prefer scenario 3, which is we trade LE to the Leafs for a first rounder. Then we go in a tear, winning the cup (Torts storms our dressing room during game 5)  while the Leafs tank and we end up with the 1st overall pick.

S1 but only because I know the outcome in advance. I'm not sure I can handle another run + game 7 SCF loss... my poor heart... 

Funny you say that. I know a ton of people who started watching the canucks in the 2007 playoffs and haven't watched since the game 7 loss in 2011. 

 

So you're definitely not alone.

S1 as its the only scenario where we end up with something of value. I wish would tank right now to be 

honest because if we dont make the playoffs we retain our 1st rounder.

 

In S2 the only thing we get is playoff experience, heartbreak and tears in our beers. CDC would be 

a cesspool of negativity, I would be one of those people dumping on the Canucks. So it would not be pretty.

We all need to remember this crazy sport/passion is meant for entertainment, is how I'm lately feeling.
