Not for long my friend. It's painful, I've seen worse of the Canucks as a kid but the good times are ahead. As bad as it feels a better draft pick will help the rebound. Just look how bad this team is as soon as we lose a bit of depth. We need a far deeper prospect pool than we currently have because when have we not had injuries?

This time at the bottom won't last IF we don't rush things. No prospect has ever been killed because they were held back a year. As I've said before, many prospects have been killed because they've been rushed too soon.

It's not like Demko, Petterssen or Lind are taking us to the playoffs next year even if they're in the lineup. Another year at a lower level can only help and never hinder their development.

The future is promising and it's so tempting to take shortcuts. Oilers have been taking shortcuts for 20 years, this isn't just the Oilers but we took shortcuts in the 70's and 80's that lead to nowhere BEFORE there was a salary cap.

Let's not repeat those mistakes.

Now back to the Game Thread Wink

  If Petterson is up to 180 and strong, and Lind is strong say 8-10 good lbs and is 190;  there is no reason we should keep the useless Gagne and Goldobin. Another year of this, and the fans will stay home. Demko is MORE than ready to take a job here, too. Drafted in '14, so he is 22 y.o. Ready

Styxy,

We're going to suck next year as well. it may be well worth it to leave the younger guys along with Demko in Utica with the possible exception of Gaudette if he earns his way onto the team. We all want to see the team win but one more year of suckage after this one is what we should expect.

No.

If a prospect like Demko shows that he's NHL ready then he should be in the NHL.

Demko wet the bed for 3 games in a row in Utica recently. Trent Cull and Benning are on record for keeping him there next year. Do you think that Demko being here next year gets us to the playoffs? I don't think so. Why rush a player? We are going to have a sh!t show for at least one more season.

That's why i said IF he's NHL ready. I never said rush the player. We're not going to know that till training camp/preseason.

You wanted the Canucks to send Boeser down to Utica after the preseason that he had. If Pettersson and Demko and whoever shows that they're NHL ready like Brock did last year then they should be in the NHL.

The league is full of youngsters now. Many draft +1 year players. These kids are so prepared in junior hockey now. Those teams are run like pro teams. I appreciate the fact that we should be patient, but if kids are ready, you've got to let them play.

I'm sure if we draft dahlin he will be here next year. Why accept that we will be bad. Screw that. Do what we can to start climbing up the standings. Losing sucks! Thats the attitude i want this team to have. I definately dont want to go into next season accepting that we will bea lottery team again. Might as well fire benning if thats how he is thinking

The Sedins who are "on a 50 point pace" are nowhere to be seen. Powerplay is also non existent without Brock. Canucks PP was top 10 with Brock in the lineup. At least now we know why their PP was so good earlier in the year and it's not because of Newell Brown or thr Sedins.

Take that 100 points out of the lineup and change the name to the Vancouver Oilers and Voila.....template for rebuild fully in place.  

We just need more cliches......'good team play thru injuries'.....or 'good teams find a way' .......nah....maybe no cliches would work either.  ..

The fact is we were projected to finish 31 in the league and that was before 4 out of top 6 were injured for 1/2 the year........so blaming the Sedins is not really the real answer unless you think that the Oilers model of blaming their vets back in their rebuild was correct.
A word to the wise ain't necessary - it's the stupid ones that need the advice.

But, but they're on a 50 point pace. So they're still pretty good players right? i haven't noticed them though since Brock got hurt. They're also pretty invisible on the PP. A PP that was ranked top 10 before Boeser got hurt.

I've called them PP specialists all year but they're pretty useless on the PP as well without Boeser.

Besides mentoring Pettersson(though we're not sure if he's going to make the next year)What exactly is the point of bringing them back?
