Comment: - It happened. Like so many other young teams before those who have suddenly made great strides and assume that success will continue on its own, the Canucks drove completely into the ditch after the success of the Edmonton bubble. Injuries to important players, especially Elias Pettersson, undoubtedly affected. But the fact that they did not achieve as much as expected - not at all, in fact - was mainly due to the fact that a small but dangerous dose of pride seeped into the dressing room. It is almost inevitable, without maturity and routine, the kids become a little too happy with their breakthrough and often, unknowingly, fail to work as hard as before. But the lesson usually sticks quickly, those who have completely unnecessarily experienced such a dip embrace the lesson and decide to start battling again. Then the development curve continues steadily upwards - just a year too late. So what would have happened last season is happening now instead: the Canucks are establishing themselves in the league's elite stratum. And the pace of the transformation process only increases with new names like Conor Garland, Jason Dickinson and Oliver Ekman-Larsson, the latter probably on a mission to prove that the last years thoughts that he passed his best years are wrong.

Tips : - The season's big positive surprise, together with Kings.
