So hard to say, can you really pick one year over another as a better opportunity? look at the Kings last year. Theoretically the Canucks could be set up like this going into the playoffs:

a) D set, gelled and performing well with set pairings
b) All Forwards back healthy and ready to go
c) All slumps busted (Burrows, PP, PK, D. Sedin, Edler etc.) and humming
d) Coming in on a roll (typical time for Canucks to start rolling)
e) Young players legs finally under them (Kassian, Schroeder, Jensen(?), Lain(?)) with rolls and lines defined

That's a distinct possibility, team is too talented/deep (when healthy) for most if not all of the above to happen. Really... short of a twin or a goalie getting a season ending injury (knock, knock, knock) it can't get much worse for the 'Nucks.

IF Gillis/AV are projecting a turnaround based on that list above in most of the areas above why wouldn't you ad pieces?
