OP what I think you mean to say, is even if everything goes well, we're still gonna be a bubble team. And that's alot of if's, but's and however's that have to fall the Canucks way.

Personally, I believe the best thing is to start shipping out these dead contracts (Myers, Boeser, Garland, Poolman and even Demko). The roster is crunched in cap space thanks to all these mediocre contracts. These players are still decent and might do well on the right team, just not in Vancouver.

The season has been plagued in mediocrity and I don't see how shipping the aforementioned contracts will even make the roster that much worse. We probly won't get a top 3 pick, but that's okay. Shed cap space between now and the off-season so there's cap space for future moves. Dumba would be a nice upgrade on Myers even if the rest of the D core remains the same.

Time to stockpile futures and cap space. Build on smart contract signings, even 1 year deals on players that can be moved at deadline for futures. Slow and steady wins the race. We should build around Petterson, Hughes and Miller. Our best assets outside Horvat, who Canucks should deal for futures. 8 million+ is too expensive for a player whose only had an elite year in his contract season. Miller had point per game seasons prior to scoring 99 points and was the backbone with Petterson and Hughes, not Horvat.

With a little luck, in a few years we'll have a bunch of low cost, young players surrounding Petterson, Hughes and Miller. At least salary cap space to sign the best players and compete in the playoffs.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>battadan</b></div><div>Keith is pretty good.. ha. <strong>im not to worries about winning games after the TDL this year. lets be in the top 5 for the draft.</strong>

bowman then has the whole summer to build around keith, murphy, Boqvist, seabs (kinda).

<strong>also you have to assume a couple prospects will make the jump</strong>: guilbert, beaudin,regula, holm at least 1-2 of them will be up i hope.

so no i dont think it is dire to keep the dmen we have for next year.

yes there are one hit wonders but there are more great players that have 1 bad year, then go back to productive. i still like the way he is playing, he is getting such great opportunities, that im not worries, it will click eventually this year. <strong>if not he will be damn motivated to come out blazing next year</strong>.</div></div>

Yes, it's not about winning this year but we need to keep the players that are going to help us win for next season and beyond. Koekkoek can do that and it's not like he's 32. He could stick around for a rebuild. Ya he takes a roster spot but he can be a solid 7th D-man which this team could use next season. Tanking for a lottery is overrated imo unless the team is in the bottom 3-5 which we're not. I'd rather the team finish with good energy to give them confidence heading into next season.

I hope Beaudin, Krys or others make the jump next season on our blueline. It's time to slowly drip these players into the lineup. We're facing cap troubles for the foreseeable future so this is the easiest way to get around that.

Friend told me early this season that Debrincat's one-timer cant even hit the net. I told him give him some time and it will come. Well it's almost the end of the season and Cat is hitting the net, just alot of the shots are perimeter shots or into the goalies crest. I've lost my patience with him now because he's a liability defensively and struggles to win board and net battles. Let's hope he be guns blazing again because it's not looking good for him or the Hawks.
