spook007 Posted February 7, 2019 Share Posted February 7, 2019 Let the boys run with it...they've earned it. All the positivity this season has been seeing how the young players have taken over, together with Markys fantastic play. What ever will be, will be... Silver linings are, that if its play offs, it will make the fans happy, and a good draft pick will make them happy as well. It's been quite a long time since fans have been this united in looking positively on the team, and its future regardless... And this is why, I want us to just run with it if possible. The young players have done good. Expect 1-2 more youth in the line up next season and again the year after, and again the year after... The young players have already taken over the team, and they will continue to do so, but they need games of value in the NHL before they can contend, so the tougher the games the better. All a learning curve... so even a 1st round playoff exit will be of huge value. Unfortunately I don't believe in the luck of the draft position fairy god mother, and I have zero faith in us getting a top 3 pick. I've resigned myself to the fact, that if no blatant cheating were ever involved in the draft lottery, then some woodoo doctor (probably Gary Bettman) must be sitting somewhere, putting needles into a Canucks jersey. This club is cursed, when it comes to draft. Thank god Benning has been able to pick up players anywhere in the draft. I see us making a play for a FA in the offseason. Stone is very tempting, especially if Baertschi continue to have problems. Although expensive, he will be cheaper than EK or similar. Hopefully Dahlen i able to take up a top 2 wing position as well. But for now no rentals for assets/picks... Bring it on... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
