Recommended Posts

Time again to dust off your crystals balls ladies and gents!


On the eve of free agency, I thought it would be a good time to start thinking about our predictions for the season.


The rules are the same:


1) Everyone gets one post (please be honest) in which they are allowed to post their prediction for the upcoming season.


2) This post can be edited as much as you like right up until the Canucks' opening night


3) Before the Canucks’ season opener this thread will locked, sealed and pinned by a moderate for everyone to monitor their, and others, successes and failures at reading tea leaves, palms, the stars, tarot cards to predict the upcoming season. This will hopefully fuel some interesting discussions at the end of the season.


4) Please, NO DISCUSSION WITHIN THIS THREAD, until it is re-opened. It will only get messy.


5) You can include anything you want in your post and it does not have to be restricted to the Canucks - standings, line-ups, trades, proposal predictions, champions  ect.

I will win the Art Ross Trophy, the Hart Memorial Trophy, the Lester B. Pearson Trophy and the Conn Smythe Trophy in 2020.


I will lead my team to win the Stanley Cup in 2020.  My buddy BO will be named captain of the team.  And my countryman Gustav Nyquist will score the winning goal in the Stanley Cup final...  :)

Bold predictions.


Bennings moves pay off, added depth insulates Tanev and Edler - they both play 65 plus games.  


LE does not play in Utica - none of the young guys bump him off the roster.   He plays the same role, gets around the same many points and helps the top two lines get favourable match ups at home.


Our home record is impressive.  EP, Boeser and Horvat all get over 70 points for the first time.  Miller gets over sixty as well.  


Hughes plays around 70 games and gets around 45 points.  Elder and Myers also get over 30.  


EP gets 86 points - our future superstar is arriving.   


JV scores 20-20 on the third line.   Still doesn’t get top six time as he’s blocked by Boeser and Miller.  


Our second line is arguably our best line.  Our team essentially has a 1a and 1b line, just like the best teams in the NHL.  Bear-Horvat-Miller and Pearson-Horvat-Miller are both a handful.  Bear gets injured, Pearson plays for him.


Our record is  102 points, good for second in our division and home ice.   We play Calgary in the first round and beat them in five.  We lose in the second round to COL in 7 - in OT LE scores an own goal and fans start hating him more then Messier.  He’s shamed into retiring.


Markstrom doesn’t slip back into his career norm / continues to play very well.  Demko doesn’t supplant him but has similar stats.  


Hughes-Makar-Hughes are the Calder candidates.  J Hughes wins it ... three finalists in a row!


JB is a finalist for GM of the year and TG wins the Adams....


2021 Final is Vancouver-NYR.   We win  our first cup.
