The Vancovuer Canucks have been on a bit of roll as of late, having won 6 of their last 10 games, as well as a current 4 game winning streak to go along with it.
While there’s no doubt that it’s exciting hockey to watch, it has come too late into the season where fans are actually staring to hate the fact that the Canucks are winning now. It’s been a terrible season for the Canucks, no doubt about it. It’s funny how originally fans were upset and throwing jerseys on the ice because of how fed up they were with the team blowing leads and losing game to all the sudden hating the fact that the Canucks are actually winning now.
Well, there’s a reason for it. For one, the Canucks are pretty much already out of the playoffs. While they can still mathematically make it, it’s pretty much impossible. The only way the Canucks would make it is if they win the rest of their games and every team above them loses all their games… yeah, literally impossible.
So now why are Canucks fans mad that they’re winning all the sudden? Well, it’s because fans want the 1st overall pick, a draft pick that the Vancouver Canucks have never had in their entire franchise history. What makes it even more intriguing is the fact that the projected 1st overall pick this year is a BC-born player and a huge fan of the Vancouver Canucks himself. His name, is Connor Bedard, a superstar talent that’s been the projected 1st overall pick for years.
Even if the Canucks don’t land the 1st overall pick, this 2023 draft class is looking like one of deepest draft classes that we’ve seen in awhile, similar to the 2020 NHL draft. So you can’t blame Canucks fans for wanting the team to lose since they already gave up hopes of a playoff run months ago. I, for one, and hoping they start losing again. All the winning they’re doing is for absolutely nothing.
