supermanbieksa Posted August 26, 2015 Share Posted August 26, 2015 Lately it has been a lot of talk about what direction this team is heading. Are we heading towards mediocracy or are we heading towards brighter days? But usually when we discuss the future it's only one or two years a head. So as the title states, where do you se the Canucks by 2020? I do believe we have added important pieces to our prospect pool, but I don't think it's really close to good enough. Of course that could be changed with two prospects reaching levels higher than anticipated. But the reality is that most teams, at least in our division has better prospects and better young players in their lineup than we have at the moment. I think Benning & Co has made some upgrades to this organisation and they've made some questionalbe and unexpected moves. So it's difficult to predict what will happen next. But I don't think this team will be near a contending team by 2020, more likely a marginal playoff team by then. So my guess is mediocracy. But that's not because i don't believe in the work JB & Trevor does. I just look at the other organisations and it looks like many of them is one or two step a head of us in their rejuvenation phase. I'm not trying to be a "Negative Niklas" and I hope I'm wrong, guess we'll find out by then. (I will not make a projected line up for 2020, because if i'm lucky, I'll get 30% correct. and that line up could potentially end up as someone's sign. And then I'll have to read how wrong I was every time I log in to CDC for four years.) Feel free to flame away, but at least try to add something to the discussion if you don't have the same prediction as me, M'kay? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
