Homer optimism going for yes. I wouldn't be 100% disappointed if we missed though as long as there is progress.

No no no no. This is the same garbage team that finished 29th last year. Yakupov and Schultz can only do so much.

Abysmal defence, unstable goaltending, soft forwards, and inexperience. This is not a winning formula, even if they have five elite young talents.

Of course not.

Not this year, and maybe not next year, but when they do, look the **** out!

They should just tank another season and rack up another #1 pick.

I think they finish 8th, especially in a shortened season.

I don't think they get in but they will be fighting for a spot. I can see them around 9-10. All depends on Dubnyk

That would be great but I can't see it happening. An Oilers/Canucks series would be pretty crazy though. I'd feel sorry for the people reading the main board GDT.

Krueger will have a significant impact. He's why I decided to vote Yes

No,

Where they are in 2-3 years depends on their goaltending and young D. If Dubnyk can prove to be a legit starter and their young D can progress and show themselves capable at the highest level, they'll be a playoff team in couple years.

They are far too green to make it in now.

No. Guessing 10th-ish in the West, maybe a tad lower.

I will entertain the answer of yes . They will just slide into the playoffs. Based on the fact that I have drafted Eberle, Hall, Shultz and Dubi (3rd string goalie) for my hockey pool lol.
Crossing my fingers their continue play and chemistry will carry over from the AHL were they are dominating...............but honestly my brain says they will def not make the playoffs :p
