And knowing Benning, we'll still manage to get a superstar.

Which bothers me why we don't have more than our default number of picks.  Work on your biggest asset/strength (drafting).  Do that by having more picks.

The Habs play 19 in 32 so they have the same disadvantage as us.

 

Basically both teams will be put through the gauntlet. It will be a matter of which teams stays healthier and gets on a roll.

 

The biggest X factor for me will be whether Holtby can find his game again. If we can have both goalies playing well that might give us the edge over Montreal who has Price injured.

 

I had not paid any attention to hockey while the Canucks were out and was astounded to just now discover how poorly the Habs have done lately. 
 

We have a chance here. The fact that is even possible, even if unlikely, has me absolutely gobsmacked.

Are you new to the team?

 

Sure it means a sprint to a bottom

5 finish... but that only translates to a #8 pick in Canuck luck.

This is our year my friend. Law of attraction, speak it in to reality and then curse bettman out after they screw us again. This is the canuck way.

I respect the fact that Benning knows this and still stuck his neck out to say the Canucks will probably be quiet this draft deadline cuz trading players who have just been through this last 2 weeks is not the right thing to do. Gotta respect the man whether you like him or not.

Why wouldn't it be the right thing to do?  It's a business.  Obviously for a career Canuck like Edler (who'd never waive his NTC in any event) that would be a different case.

It'll be interesting to see who shows up for a skate tomorrow.... players and coaches.

I am not expecting them to do well. The virus hit them hard and their gonna be coming back into a condense schedule after 3 weeks off. 
 

We could be dealing with rust and fatigue from the virus that isn’t gonna get any better with the schedule. 
 

It could very well be like the start of the season.

Except one team is coming off a full roster of covid.  They might play, but theyre not going to be healthy.

And 6 back-to-backs in 26 days.

After not playing for almost a month.

After they all had a virus that attacks the respiratory system. 

 

I hope they do well, but this doesn't look good and I worry for the health of the players.  

 

Hopefully they just mail it in, but, they won't.
