Honky Cat Posted September 8, 2015 Share Posted September 8, 2015 I'm a big Canucks fan. But if the Canucks are contenders by 2020, what does that mean for other Western teams with far better assets than the Canucks, are they not contenders? - Flames - Oilers - Predators - Jets - Avs All of these teams, like it or not, have youth right now (and more in the pipeline) that are far better than the Canucks. Whether we want to admit it or not, all the above Western teams, in 5 years, are setup for success far more than the Canucks are. A lot can happen in 5 years..for all we know,the Canucks could draft a franchise defining player in the next few years, who would be eligible to be in the lineup by 2020...Assets bust,or are squandered (look at the Oilers,CBJ,Islanders for the last 5 years),.... and reversals of fortune can occur at any time.....For all we know,Arizona Coyotes could be SC contenders by then.
