With much younger prospects like Quinn Hughes, Jett Woo, Kole Lind, and Thatcher Demko definitely going to their junior or minor teams, there is a lot to be looking forward to beyond this year. This year will most likely see a few young stars have breakout years, and when players are called up near the end of the season, they will be successful. However, with the current construct of the team, and with the newer players needing a bit of time to gel together, it might be a bit of a long season for the Canucks. Ultimately, we’ll see some team success, and rookies like Pettersson will be very fun to watch, however I don’t envision this team making any noise. The veterans they have don’t have enough skill, and there isn’t enough top end talent to drag them to the playoffs. I think next year will be a complete turn around from how this year goes, but this year the Canucks will most likely miss the playoffs for the fourth consecutive season.
