Ugh.

Do. Not. Like.

I fear that we are entering the artificial "we can do it!" phase. Where our team used to contend, but can't any longer, but we hold on to that hope and move forward with a cup/bust mentality that puts us into a hole, a la Calgary.

I really don't like our roster right now.

The only moderately sane prediction I've seen so far. But I'll go with 8-0, Burrows with 5 goals and 3 assists, ...

Is what I'd probably run. Garrison I don't think pairs with Edler and Luongo is probably gone by then.

That's why we can't except ****ing Bozak, Kadri, 2nd as an acceptable package for Luongo.

I don't like it either, holes all over the place and we will rely on the Sedins for everything. We're 1 top 4 D injury away from having only 1 top pair and and 2 average pairs.

Obviously trading luongo to boost our offense would make the whole group better but when you look at it we're either at or near the end of our window.

But we will see.

Don't be a jealous anti-freedom, anti-Canucks hater. The glorious Canucks have many tricks up their sleeves that other "teams" couldn't dream of!

It's usually up for grabs every game day unless someone asks to reserve a specific game.

this team needs 2nd line forwards, badly! I'm not sold on Booth and we know what RAymond is.

I don't remember the last time we didn't need second line forwards. And I'm not talking about 2nd/3rd line tweeners(AKA Raymond) but true second line forwards.

We're saying this because Kesler isn't in the lineup though, right?

Actually, I think Zombotron has something special cooked up for opening night. But if there's lots of interest in doing GDTs, a sign-up thread may not be a bad idea.

Although I appreciate the sentiment.

IMHO we have 2 more years

Our D isn't old

Our 3 and 4th liners are still prime years.

Goaltending is fine

As long as the Sedins can stay competitive, and Kesler can stay healthy the team has a good chance.

Weith Henrik and Kesler hurt in 10-11 and Daniel and Kesler hurt in 11-12 we were screwed offensively. A 3c who can step up is what I want to see added this year. PP RS dman would be lovely but you can't get them often.

I agree with you. That's why I've been pushing for a legitimate top 6 forward for a while now and we still have not addressed this problem. If we end up wasting Luongo on some crap 3rd line center and a B prospect we will really become the Calgary Flames.

Is anyone else concerned with AV's suggesting that this team play more defensive? I am really at a loss here.
