How are we projected to earn 10 points fewer than last year with a (*knocks on wood*) healthier team, a proven goal scorer in Eriksson, and stronger D-corps? I don't know that we'll win the Cup but we aren't slouches either. Sheesh.

And the trend of predicting AHLbertan style failure for the canucks continues..


Im not expecting much this season, but a few things bother me about these rankings


1) The lames getting 99 points.  Their bottom 2 lines are not very good, and that run and gun defence they spent the bank building is pourous like swiss cheese.  I doubt an above average goalie takes them from bottom of the barrel to top of the barrel, especially if lil hockey gnome holds out for 8 million dollars to pay for limb lengthening surgery.


2) Coilers, in essence, swap Hall for Lucic, add Larsson and a rookie Pool Party, and jump 12 points?  Yeah, sure.


2) Canucks finish with around 10 less points than last year despite improving the D and getting key players back healthy.  Not likely.

That's all the ref's have allotted us this year...

...we need to take a ref. out to dinner or something...get at least one of them to be at least neutral....

Good idea. Take them out for a nice dinner and then fit them with some nice shoes, preferably cement.
