They have some key injuries, but are on a steady decline. I think missing the playoffs is better for them because it will motivate it them to shake the team up. Making the playoffs would give Gillis a glimmer of hope

Those Sedin contracts are going to crush the team tho. Its going to be tough to find a team to take on both contracts. The Sedins are also mirror images of eachother, so if one slows down, both will.

Playing arm chair GM of the Canucks: I would trade the Sedins asap to a team like the Islanders looking for immediate help. In return get some good prospects (De haan, maybe Reinhart), use that cap space to sign some good FAs (25-29), try and get ROR, build a team around Kesler,Edler, Reinhart, Horvat, ROR,Lack
