2015-2016 Vancouver Canucks Betting
“We have some young players that need an opportunity to play in the NHL and show what they can do, so we made some tough decisions to make room for these players,” Benning said, “I’m OK if we take a little bit of a step back in the regular season to make our team better in the playoffs. That was the intent of what we were looking at when we made the moves we made.”
The Canucks have made the Stanley Cup Playoffs in six of the past seven years but they may have a tough time making it in 2015-2016. The Canucks are counting heavily on goaltender Ryan Miller having a bounce back season, especially with Lack gone. The Canucks seem to have a focus on winning in the playoffs with players like Sutter and Prust but those players won’t help if Vancouver misses the playoffs altogether.
The Canucks were a really good team to bet on a year ago at home and on the road. Based on what this team did in the off-season you may want to throw out last year’s numbers. The Canucks should be a team to bet under the total, however, this season as they have very little scoring. The Canucks were just a 50-50 proposition on totals a year ago but they should trend more to the under in 2015-2016

If you listen to Vancouver’s GM you can just see this team turning into a train wreck. He is talking about players like the Sedins teaching the younger players. “I want to be competitive and I want our young guys to learn from our older guys the things they have to do to play the right way to win,” Benning said, “It’s invaluable to have veterans that can teach our young players what it means to be a Vancouver Canuck.” The Canucks are going nowhere fast and 2015-2016 should be the start of a decline that could last a long time. This team is never going to win until the Sedins are gone and there is nothing to suggest there are any young players worth getting excited about. Expect the Canucks to miss the playoffs in 2015-2016.
