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?
We all thought Kesler and Booth would be set to go after the first injuries.
There is no way they will be good enough after their recoveries this time.
Its over for this year, plain and simple. Players never perform 100% after injuries, especially playoff hockey.
