Canucks on Track to Repeat

Vincent KuoContributor IDecember 26, 2007

The Canucks will win the division again.

Look what happened to them last year—they sucked in the beginning, but turned things around at the end of the season.

The same thing is happening this season. They played poorly early on, but they can come back and win the division.

I'm saying this because we got Roberto Luongo. He's an ironman. Luongo shows again that he's one of the best goaltenders in the league, if not the best. He will once again be one of the cornerstones to lead the Canucks to the playoffs.

Also, the Sedins are consistent and dangerous, and Taylor Pyatt is showing last year was no fluke.

There are some differences from last year though.

1. Naslund is back. After struggling last year, he's back to his old self of a couple of years ago.

2. Kesler is having a break out year. He was in the top five on the Canucks in goals in the beginning of the season.

3. Everyone thought (myself included) that Bieksa was injured, we were screwed. But no, we have some good young potential players in Jaffary, Weaver, Raymond, Edler, and Brown.

This is just my opinion. If you would like to comment, feel free to do so. Thanks.
