I just dont think he will score enough to off set his deficiencies.
Again why have Grabner at 30 to 45 points when Chris Higgesn gets you that number and also plays a gritty 2-way game. How manny points does grabner need to outscore Higgens by to justify a spot in the top6 ?
Again, I think last year was an anomaly. So if your estimation of Grabner’s future points is correct then I would agree with your stance. I just don’t agree with your estimation.

The Canucks made it as far as a team can make it without actually winning so IMO they are very clearly capable of winning it all. That of course does not mean they will. Personally I think that Luck plays a fairly major factor in who ultimately wins it all. I think there are 5 or 6 teams capable of winning most years, who hoists the mug is typically the team with some luck with regard to injuries, match ups, bounces, and how the game is reffed. Look at LA this year... Yes they have a very talented group who played really well, but they were almost 100% healthy, got a ton of good bounces, incredibly good match upps, and the "put the whistle away" reffing style played right into their strength. Take any of the 5 or 6 top teams in the league, present a similar set of circumstances, and the results will be quite predictable.
So all of that said, all things being equal, including luck and injuries, are you saying that you feel the Canucks had a 50/50 shot at beating Boston or/and LA?

My apologies for your confusion. Please read previous postings regarding same should that be of concern to you.

I don't think they will necessarily repeat last year's performance or that of the year before. That was the point. Gravitating away from our argument and to the thread topic, specifically respecting Booth, I think he will surprise and have a bounceback year this year (assuming there is a year).
