The harsh truth edition 1.

Hello CDC I know a lot of you will just look at the title and quickly say no and leave but let's be real about this. We need to rid that stupid bias that everyone has including me. Let's face it, everyone wants the Canucks to compete every night  but with our current roster we as a fan base are waiting till the third period to see some action. And it might not even come then. OUR team isnt ready. We can barely score. This disheartens me to write this but we suck right now. We are going to lose against Edmonton tonight and we are going to lose many more games. The sedins can barely cycle anymore, bo and Baertschi arent even given any offensive time and Sbisa and Larsen are our third pairing. WE ARENT READY! There's no point in trying now so it kills our chance at a good future because finishing between that awkward stage of not making playoffs and not getting a top 5 pick sucks. We dont have a speedy team and we don't have a future number one centerman, left wing or defenseman. Bo sometimes reminds me of tarasenko out there but willie isn't giving him the chances. And juolevi looks like he can be good but not the number one guy. I'm not saying this because I hate the Canucks. Ive watched them since I was 8 and I couldn't keep my eyes off them. I just think we need to lose a bit now so we can win a lot later. Plus we do have 3 great prospects, just no one to replace the two  best players that have ever worn this franchises colors. We need a centerman and a top defenseman before we can compete again. Only way to get those parts is by draft or trading a kings ransom. I'm not saying we completely blow up our team but we should be trading some assets that have some value right now. This thread wasnt meant to troll im just saying that toronto and Edmonton are closer to the cup than we are. Even if we ditched willie we'd still have the same roster. Somethings got to change around here.

I think a lot of you don't understand that next year we will see a lot of the same stuff on this roster. Boeser wont be given time in the top two lines like bo and Baertschi. And stecher wont be given his chance because tanev Edler hurry and guddy are our top 4. Willie runs four lines even tho he should run three lines at most cuz our fourth line stinks

LOL ok I'll break it up. In the same way too. 

 

· love Canucks with all my heart

· Sedins are looking old

· willies not playing horvat and baertschi in the offensive zone

· Sbisa Larsen are our third pairing

· team wants to compete but when they do the games are so boring to watch

· we don't wanna finish in between not making playoffs and bad drafting spot

· we don't have future number 1 center and defenseman 

· again I love the Canucks but we aren't ready

Used my -1......so I will give you -10 000.

Seriously educate yourself on the Tanking 101.  Edmonton sucked for 10 straight years, I live here I'd rather watch the Canucks compete than watch a team you know is going to stink out the arena.  They had 5 #1 picks Two are now gone.  They got lucky with McDavid.  If we did a ten year tank, maybe we would end up with another Yashin or Daigle.  Tanking isn't worth it.

The Oilers have drafted 1st four times.

How about you leave forever... 

 

 

Nah.  Don't need to get all upset that your ramblings will be forever lost and locked.  Present your argument in a more legible fashion and I am sure it will actually warrant a discussion rather than coming off as a bratty 10yo.

Educate myself? It doesn't take ten years to tank you goof. Edmonton just sucks at everything that's why they are where they were. It takes 1-3 years for a team like ours because we have some talent unlike toronto or Edmonton did. We suck already, idk about you but Whats so great about watching a hockey game that we look tired and don't score till the third period... maybe. Grow up bro if they don't do something we ain't gonna finish in a playoff position and we'll finish in a bad drafting spot.
