I definitely could see this team overachieving this year with a new coach behind the bench, same as Willie's first season.

Projected line up:

Baertschi-Horvat-Eriksson
Sedin-Sedin-Vanek

Gagner-Burmistrov-Virtanen
Granlund-Sutter-Dorsett

Tanev/Edler
Stetcher/Hutton
Del Zotto/Gudbranson

Markstrom
Any of these 4
lol or the easy thing would be since Granlund played down the middle alot how bout sit Burmistrov Whom if he were a young player didn't exactly EARN anything all preseason but, since its Vancouver his play slides Veterans get free passes...

Play Granlund as a 3rd line center sit Burmistrov and Looky looky both kids play Boeser in a top 9 offensive role Jake on the 4th line...

But oh wait silly me We gotta PLAY ALL THE PROGRESS STOPPERS that impede the progress of youth... Buy your season tickets and get excited about the NHL being a young mans game when THE VISITORS SHOW UP...
I'd so much rather watch the potential of a Brock Boeser with the team losing than the degradation of Sedin hockey where they eek out a victory

Sitting Boeser makes me want to puke. He's one of a handful of players I am actually excited to watch this season.

I can't wait to read Boeser's blog post on CDC about the home opener. Super stoked to watch Derek Dorsett, Sam Gagner and Alex Burmistrov tonight.

Yeah they went at least one too many on the ufa this summer. Each signing is decent on its own but there is little to no room for kids to crack the team. More likely it's Elmer trying to save his own skin in year 4 of a 5 year deal. I think it's playoffs or bust for the Aquilinis.

Ouch. Markstrom lets one through on the first shot of the regular season.

Lets fucking go!!
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

I guess that's why Dorsett is out there on opening night and not Boeser.

And oh yeah... Sutter.
Try to focus on 1 year from now...

I thought it was a good sign that the Horvat pp unit was out there on the first PP, even though the Sedins had a rest from the TV timeout.
