However, with them having to play 19 games in 31 days, I wouldn’t be surprised if they fall to bottom 3 in the standings. Looking at the standings right now, only Buffalo is out of reach IMO.
It’s going to be anywhere from 5th to 11th. New Jersey (34 points) is the only team behind us capable of catching us and they hold 5th and the current 12th place team (Chicago) has 43 points and we ain’t catching them, we have 35 points. Dallas has 40 points and are catchable. Detroit is 4th worse with 34 points same as New Jersey but we have 6 games in hand on them, they ain’t passing us. Anaheim holds 3rd worse with 31 points but we have 5 games in hand on them so we ain’t catching them

Don’t count the Canucks out as playing well over the final 19 games. There is something to be said about being well rested.
Seattle picks third correct?
Shit Fingers. You’re right. Not good for us

Apparently the Canucks are now playing 19 games in 30 days, injuries will mount they may have a decent start when games resume but the toll of the schedule will catch up to them.

OHL cancels return-to-play plan for 2020-21 season due to COVID-19
The OHL, the lone Canadian major junior league not to begin a 2020-21 season, announced Tuesday that it has cancelled its return-to-play plan amid a third wave of COVID-19 in Ontario.

“We have worked tirelessly with the province and the chief medical officer of health for the past year on different scenarios and different windows of opportunity, but the reality is the conditions in Ontario have never been right to start and complete an uninterrupted, safe opportunity for players to showcase their skills,” said OHL Commissioner David Branch in a press release.

“We owe it to our players and their families to be definitive. We were committed to return and play this season, but our hopes and desires have been dashed by the cruel realities of COVID-19."

You'd think this is the draft where good players are more likely to drop to the later rounds. Good for JB.

Bobby McKenzies mid season rankings. Came out 5 days ago. Power 1st, Guenther 2nd, Edvinsson 3rd, Berniers 4th, Hughes 5th

Bobs rankings tend to be most legit

Kent Johnson looks interesting in or around where the Canucks may be selecting. Just starting college though. High scoring winger.
