Is it already time for me to roast you again?
I predicted Nucks in 5 last year and at the time of my prediction there was nothing wrong with it. The Canucks were BY FAR the best team in the league in 2010/2011. They had troubles against the Blackhawks in the first round, but won the series and after that coasted to the Finals.
Most hockey experts and analysts had the Canucks winning in 6 games, I predicted 5, anything wrong with that? Nope. Wanna know why? Because Boston was one goal away from not making the finals that year. People tend to forget but their series against Tampa Bay went 7 games and the Bruins were on the brink of going home. Based off this and the fact that Thomas allowed 21 goals that series made me believe and everyone else that the Canucks would win the Cup.
Vancouver played like crap in the SCF due to suspensions, numerous injuries to top players, and only scored 8 goals in 7 games. And it STILL took the Bruins 7 games to beat them. With the way the Nucks played, they should have been swept.
But I've already gone over all this numerous times on here, especially to haters like JM and yourself.
And before you even attempt to rip on Luongo, he is a Hall of Fame goalie and is better than any goalie in your team's history.
But hey, you keep having fun with your second round exits and your watered down franchise player. I'll enjoy watching the Canucks contend for the Cup for years to come as you prepare yourself to go back to tanking for top 10 picks within a couple of years.
