Our season record against the Habs ends with a Canuck record of 3-5-1 and a Habs record of 6-0-3.

 

We never beat the Habs in regulation this year. They have points in every game against us. 5 of 6 of our losses against them ended in regulation.

 

Safe to say Habs are happy with the result of this matchup.

Meh.

 

Once Price and Weber are over the hill the Habs are in for a long rebuild. This is their window in the next couple years and they don’t look close.

I was just thinking that.  Those two are definitely having down seasons, too.
 

Petry is having a heck of a year but he’s 33 as well.  Scrappy team that has a few good young guys but... hard to see them getting any better.

It's a shame that we're more than pretty likely to miss the playoffs at this point. This most recent stretch was very fun to watch, however. The future looks very bright. If I were to nitpick, Demko looks like the real deal and Boeser is evolving into one of the league's most elite complete wingers.

He doesn't have a plan. I think this is what it mostly shows. It's consistent with his time here. We're a playoff team, we aren't one. 

If we don't make the playoffs we are 2 years away, but if we sneak in we are a contender.... that's how it boils down.

They're set up pretty nicely all things considered. They won't really need to rebuild, they've already been kind of doing that already on the fly.

 

They have their 1st, two 2nds, three 3rds, three 4ths and three 5ths in this upcoming draft. They've drafted early, often and fairly well in the last few years.

 

Most of their core forward group is all in their prime. They have a deep pool of prospects both at D and FWD and young players already playing well. Top 10 pool arguably.

 

They have the assets to bring in a top player if need be. What they're really missing is some high end dynamic skill. They have Caulfield/Farrell in the wings but they need a solid C.

Good point being made on Sportsnet 650.  Demko is significantly taller & bigger than Holtby. Even if you assume that their skill level is equal, when they are down or on their pads in the crease, a puck might be going past Holtby that instead would be hitting Demko directly in the arm or the chest, merely due to that height & size differential. Same thing in getting looks around or above players & fighting for vision, etc. 
 

Can’t teach size. Play Demko more & most. 
 

 

KEVIN LANKINEN 

Is only 6'2 and he takes as many shots as demko..  can't fault size.  Lankinen is also undrafted.  Holtby just sucks.  He was good because Washington can score more goals to take his diffiencies away... just like demko makes our D core look great on certain nights.

You’re way too optimistic about their prospect pool.

 

They will have so many holes in their roster as their vets age out that they won’t be able to replace. Penciling in prospects that haven’t even played a professional game is pointless.

 

Any draft pick is going to be 4 or 5 years out from helping them. Too much of a gap to contribute to their current core.

We just need to take care of business against the Jets, Oilers, Flames, and hope for the best. Also have the Sens 4 more times.

I hope this loser point won't lose our momentum going forward.  Hopefully resting demko one game makes a huge difference, so he can get us another 10 game winning streak going.  You have to ride your horse that got you back close to the promise land.

They're not gonna be as bad as you think. 

 

You're banking on Weber/Petry/Price to regress to the point that they're extreme burdens. Overall I don't really see that happening. The rest of the core is under 30.

 

You suggested they'd be in for a long rebuild. I don't think as much. They've been constantly bringing in youth and that's not gonna change with the amount of guys they have in the wings. Some of which are notables like Caulfield and Guhle. They've been bringing in a new core already.

 

I also pointed out they have the assets to make moves as well.

 

IDK how good they'll be but I don't think they'll need to rebuild for a long time.

Kotkaniemi is 20, Suzuki and Romanov are 21. It’s not unreasonable to expect them all to improve dramatically.  You can discount their prospects if you like. But Caufield has the potential to be an elite goal scorer.  They also have the bruiser defenceman Guhle who has increased his stock since being picked.  The next week or so should determine if they’ll get Harris under contract.  He’s rumoured to be their best young D producer. 
 

Farrell is burning up the USHL.  There’s a lot to be optimistic about.

Neither of those guys are number 1 centers.

 

Romanov looks like a decent top 4.

 

The rest are just question marks. Again a lot of holes.

Going to be very tough to beat Avs next 2 or 3 yrs anyways.  They are too good.. 

 

We will peak when they decline..
