They made it to the SCF last year, but this year, at least to this point, the Canucks do not look like the dominant team they were (except for when they play the Flames ). Then again, there is a lot of hockey to be played this season, so things can change.CFP! wrote:Oh, and by the time you become competitive we will have been to the West Final/SCF a few times so a cup should be in there somewhere
Anyway, they better do it quick - by next year, those dasterdly Oilers may prove to be too big of a hurdle for the Canucks.
Fine line for sure, but when you look at the core that is locked up for 3-4 years they should be in contention. Hoping to add Edler into the mix this offseason. It's not like a Iggy/Kipper/Bouwmester situation. (Which is a decent start). Sedin/Sedin/Luongo wins everytime!
As for the Oil, I have quickly become a fan. Even took Eberle in my pool this year. Hall, Eberle, RNH...looks like they wont get another lottery pick which will put Tambellini to these test to see what type of talent he can attract on the back end. Whitney was supposed to be their PP QB or at least shooter but with his health, and many other injuries on D its good they have hung on as long as they have done.
Regardless, when the realignment happens at least we will still see EDM/CAL/ANA/LA. Wahoo!
