    Unless they are hit with a lot of injuries key players layers they will do a lot better than the "experts" predict.

    Some pretty good looking young players up front of a good top 4 defense and goaltending

    first time in a while I have seen the nucks with some young talent that they sent down that a good enough to crack the line up...as long as theyan re health should be a good season... they do need to address a replacement or replacement player for the sedan's in the next couple years.....

    I also think they will do a bit better than some predictions. I believe they may sneak into the post season and will be anywhere between 7-11th in the West if all aligns well.

    Repent all you sinners while you have time, the resurrection of Christ our savior has happened and he is wearing number 34 for the Leafs. Lock up your wife's, mothers and children as there will be hell to pay for you non believers:D (That is for my boys FishT, Pippen and Derby):p

    Seeing as most forecasts have the Canucks dead last I'll join the chorus that they'll exceed expectations, which is unfortunate as the best chance at the top pick wouldn't be a bad thing! There just isn't the scoring or the lock down defence on this team so don't see them out scoring other teams on a regular basis or being able to hold teams to scratch out 1-0 or 2-1 games. Having said that, if we stay healthy, if Sutter scores at a career pace, if one or two of the prospects add some unexpected scoring punch and if the defensive core gels and play consistently we just may be in the wild card race in the last month of the season.

    Cheers!

    Even Gretzky needed a supporting cast.

    You're telling me!!! But isn't that why we watch - with the delusional hopes that all the Canuck "if's" will pan out (substitute Leafs, Oilers, Flames, etc here)??

    Cheers!

    You drinking already you seem to be repeating yourself. As for supporting cast don't see your nucks with much to offer as a supporting cast to a couple of old twins :).

    Probably not a popular opinion but if Matthews and McDavid hadn't run into goalies who couldn't stop a beach ball, and in the case of McDavid had a ref willing to ignore multiple hooks on Johnny Hockey only to award McD a penalty shot for a phantom hook, they both would have been lucky to have a point each. John Garret could have stopped two of Matthews and McDavids weak one!!

    Cheers!
