Also not sold on Vancouver this year either, the Loungo situation I could see getting ugly and being a distraction.

Also not sure why San Jose is guaranteed to be better then us, Niemi stood on his head last year (can he do it again) and they were still only the 6th seed, they are trending downwards and are aging.

But I completely agree that we can compete for a playoff spot
I think we'll be better than Winnipeg too, but to my understanding even if we finish with more points, we'd be the 4th seed in that division because we're crossing over.

I think Vancouver is entering a decline, but you can't look at both our teams and possibly think we're better. Their D is considerably better, Luongo is better than Dubie, they are better down the middle. We're superior on the wings, that's about it.

San Jose is the same story. Even if you thought we were even with them in forward talent, they'd still get the nod because their forwards actually have size - much better suited for our division. D and G are close, but I'd still give SJ the nod.
