I know I haven't posted in forever, but like last year I'll be posting my predictions/thoughts on the standings of the 2016-2017 season. Just some things I want to clarify before I do, similar to last year.
•These won't be 100% correct, probably not even close. I'm not an NHL analyst, I don't have time to watch every single game that's played. These are just my predictions, I'll back them up as much as I can with my reasoning.
•Don't lose your shit over it, like I said I'm not an analyst. You're welcomed and encouraged to give me your opinion and why you disagree with me but there's no reason to call me or others idiots for not seeing it your way.
I'll start Friday or Saturday and post hopefully once a day in time for the beginning of the season.

#30 Vancouver Canucks
GM: Jim Benning
Coach: Willie Desjardins
Projected: 7th in Pacific
Key Addition: Loui Eriksson
MVP: Ryan Miller
Sleeper: Sven Baertschi
I want to start off by saying that no I'm not hating on the Canucks or anything like that. Someone has to finish last whether you like it or not. And while I do have them last, I don't they will be a weak pushover team by any means. Similar to last season, when the Blue Jackets finished last, they were still very capable of winning hockey games, and I see the Canucks similar to that in a sense. However, overall I see a long frustrating season for Vancouver. For starters, I don't think the management or coaching have their heads in the right places, but I think you can hear that from Canucks fans themselves. The skill in the top 6 just isn't there anymore; the Sedins aren't what they used to be and Brandon Sutter is not the best candidate to lead a strong second line. While I think guys like Baertschi and Hansen are underrated as far as their overall skill, I don't think the group will gel nicely as a cohesive unit at both ends of the ice. The backend isn't much better. While I think getting Gudbranson wasn't as bad a move as people say it was, he is not replacing Bieksa and he's not going to make too significant of an impact right away. Miller is still a great goalie, but I don't think he can stand on his head forever. He's going to have to keep them in games if they want to have a shot at being more competitive this season. Overall, I think the Canucks are a slightly below average team but will have trouble finding ways to consistently win games again faster and more skilled hockey teams.
