Edmonton:
Kevin Lowe invests Daryl Katz's entire fortune on creating a time machine. He is successful. He uses the time machine to go to the 80s, acquire Wayne Gretzky, and bring him back the present, where he signs him and slots him on a line with Taylor Hall and Jordan Eberle. Gretzky puts up a 200 point season and Hall gets at least 70 goals.

Even then there'd only be like a 20% chance that we made the playoffs.

As long as you're using the machine, I'd grab Messier too.

Sedins have a bounce back year and are more than PPG players
Miller returns to the same form from 4 years ago
One of our rookie forwards steps up and has a Calder worthy season
Edler re-emerges as one of the leagues premier defensemen
Desjardins system like some rookie coaches systems works like a charm, the players take to it right away and many teams are stymied by it. This includes a top 10 finish in both PP and SH percentage.

If all 5 things happen, I see the Canucks finishing top 2 in our division, possibly winning it, with a deep playoff run. 3/5 the Canucks will at least IMO make the playoffs.

If, after all these years, it really was the system that was keeping everyone back.

Oh, and Weber and Rinne have years that even the blind HWA can see are worthy of awards.

Seguin and Benn both have monster seasons
Seguin actually scores in the playoffs
The defense plays real defense
The powerplay actually works
Kari shows up in the playoffs
Stay healthy

Even then. Maybe.

- If all other 29 teams go bankrupt.
- If the Oilers get Crosby and Malkin for Keith Aulie
- If Scrivens and Fasth both get 0.00 GAA and 100% Sv%
- If Hall, RNH, Eberle, Yakupov and Draisaitl combine for 1000 points next year.
- If Dallas Eakins gets hit by a school bus and is then brutally mauled by homosexual ManBearPig. For extra insurance, a cement brick will fall from 3000 feet and create a hole in his hollow head.
- If the defense actually doesn't suck for once
- If Justin Schultz gets 50-100-150 next year(cause we all know hes not playing defense)
- If we travel back in time and avert the deal with the devil Pocklington made.

Then we have about a .01 percent chance to win the cup

All homerism aside, I have VERY high hopes for next year and think it won't take all that much to at least contend for the cup.
The only thing I'll add is JMFJ needs to play like he did in the playoffs out of the gate. If he plays like that and Wiz can at least repeat a similar offensive season to last year and Murray possibly taking the next step it should be a big year for the Defense.

If we can put slip the kitten past the mitten, tickle the twine, and put the biscuit in the basket, we should do alright.

Also if half the team doesn't go down with injury a week before the end of the season, that'd be helpful as well.
