If the season ended after 20 games.......

The Canucks would miss the playoffs.

The west looks incredibly tough this year and even though I think most people would say the Canucks have played well this year so far the fact is they would in all likelihood miss the playoffs.

The Canucks currently sit in 8th but the Kings have two games in hand and are down only one point.

There is hope that Colorado,Minnesota and perhaps Phoenix will come down to earth a bit but there is no guarantee they will.

For all those assuming that the Canucks will make they playoffs you better pay closer attention.

I don't think with the new division/realignment that anyone assumed Canucks would have a spot guaranteed in the playoffs. Good chance to make it, but by far guaranteed.

And we've had games where we've gone toe-to-toe with the best, and some lackluster games. Don't be so quick to dismiss the Canucks

They haven't played well enough against playoff teams. It's as simple as that. Whether it's simply getting outplayed or outplaying the opposition but failing to put the puck in the net like they did with the Ducks the other night. It seems to be one or the other and neither should be acceptable pretty quick here otherwise we're going to fall out of it quick.

If you looked at the standings after the first 20 games throughout the years you'd probably see a ton of good teams and probably even some cup winners that weren't in a playoff spot yet. We are a good team and while a playoff spot is never guaranteed in a division like ours, we certainly have a pretty good shot. This division, playing so often vs some of the top contenders, will only make us stronger.

Well said! Couldn't agree more. But this thread did get me thinking ...

As we go forward, the media shouldn't be writing about whether the Canucks will make the playoffs. Instead they should be writing about how the entire season should only be 20 games.

Sigh!!! Why bother with these threads? You know the season doesn't just have 20 games....and if it did we all know we would not be going into the post season....so any speculation you were looking for from CDC is answered by asking the real question you should have asked in the first place....but it has more or less been asked and you could have easily went there instead of making this hypothetical thread....
