The End is near.
After winning their last home game of the year and fucking the Flames out of an important point, the Canucks end the season on the road. Some would say that they have been kicked out of Rogers due to a crappy 19-20-2 record. The Canucks could finish with more road wins if they win their next three games. Of course, this would royally screw any chance they might have at winning the draft lottery.
The Canucks have a 5% chance of getting Bedard right now!
Of course, even if they got him, the team's cap situation won't resolved by time he is due for his first RFA contract. Fact!
Well the Canucks play for pride, yet again, the Kings are trying to stay in the 3rd spot where they would face the Oilers or the Golden Knights. They have a 2-2 record against each of those teams, while they have a losing record against the Canucks. Go figure.

Game Day Chatter
There isn't much need for me to vent about what a disaster this year has been. I will have a lot of time this summer to bitch and moan. It has been great to see these NCAA signings come in and play...and play pretty well in fact. It's seems that Allvin is getting the cupboard filled up before the draft in case some extra sweetener is needed to get rid of OEL.....right?
Is tonight that Petey gets his 100th point? It would be nice for him to get it out of the way and take the pressure off, so he can then score 10 more before the end of the season!
Game Day Battle Hymn
This is my last Preview/Gamethread of the season...and what a season it's been, not just for the team but for NM. We appreciate you all sticking around and shooting the shit every game. Since I have allowed to spread the love of song in these previews and this is the last one, might as well make it a good one.
Go Canucks Go!
