    Since everyone else thinks we are a playoff team with petersson shooting at 40%, horvat,Virtanen and Sven shooting over 17% here’s a thread for everyone to state their position and not flip flop.

    I blame Pettersson for this years positivity.

    This should actually be named the "Anti-Pro-Tankers Thread"

    Im starting to get sucked in to believing that this team can make the playoffs and wanting them to make it, even though I firmly believe we should be in the lottery from a roster standpoint and whats best for the future

    We should let people enjoy tanking too, but evidently that's not happening.

    Oh I agree 100% and we have tried but these same people can’t let the pro tank side be in the pro tank thread

    I see no reason why we can’t win the division given what we’ve been able to do without our top pairing and top defensive center.

    I can think of a major reason why we can't win the division: the team isn't good enough to win the division.

    I can think of 17 major reasons why we will.

    1. Flames suck
    2. Oilers suck
    3. Sharks suck
    4. Ducks suck
    5. Coyotes suck
    6. Golden knights suck
    7. Kings really suck
    8. Pettersson is a god
    9. Boeser will score 50
    10. Benning prepared for injuries this year
    11. Markstrom looks solid
    12. Horvat took another step
    13. Our bottom six is elite defensively
    14. We are getting QUINN ****ING HUGHES in March
    15. The team is buying in to Travis Green’s system
    16. The boys are coming together as a team and playing for each other emotionally
    17. GO CANUCKS GO!

    Go Canucks Go is not a reason

    Your other reasons are also incorrect.

    Also forgot to mention. The crowd at GM place is alive again. The 7th man will propel the boys to the playoffs like the Seattle Seahawks.

    Except that's not real. Fans don't score goals.

    Fans do impact the outcome of games and sometimes they create goals like that jersey on the ice was the only reason why Cooke tied up game 7. Checkmate.

    Sweet! The tank thread will be free of discussion about the morality of tanking. We can cheer for the tank in peace.

    Enjoy this thread, pro-Benning people. It's all for you.

    These threads haven't gone so well the past coupe years...

    Again I'm cheering for the playoffs currently, I think Pettersson, Boeser etc leading the team to the playoffs would be absolutely massive for their development and the "rebuild" going forward.

    Don't see it happening though, I say it every year but things will normalize and we'll be in the discussion for the lottery yet again.

    Just win, baby!

    Everything will take care of itself.

    Said it many times... don’t know how anyone who watches their favorite team play sit there and cheer for their demise in that game... that they are investing time in watching.. does not compute.

    Sure be ok with a loss when it happens if you’re hoping for a tank.... but are you actually watching to cheer against your supposed favorite team?

    The anger depicted in a loss by tankers about everything wrong with the team in that game also doesn’t seem in line with ‘being happy’ they lost. Just weird.

    Anyways... step 1.. be in a playoff spot at Thanksgiving.. heh ;)

    Maybe those who want to see a team lose, aren't actually fans of the team? Common sense tells me that

    I can think of at least 10 reasons why the Canucks will be freaking sick this year

    1. WOOOO
    2. FOR THE BOIS
    3. *SHOTGUNS BEER*
    4. CLAP BOMBS **** MOMS
    5. *VIKING CLAPS*
    6. GO CANUCKS GO
    7. GO CANUCKS GO
    8. GO CANUCKS GO
    9. GO CANUCKS GO
    10. GO CANUCKS GO

    Coincidentally, this is also 10 reasons why hockey culture sucks

    To all the pro playoff posters in this thread, I would like you to keep something in mind....

    It's no secret that this regime will be targeting Jack Hughes in the draft so the farther away we get from the bottom 5 the price only goes higher and higher.

    If you value the future of this franchise, Bo Horvat and multiple future 1st round draft picks then think real hard where you want this team to finish.

    This is probably the most important year for the direction of this franchise since Benning took over.
