Yes, the Canucks have been doing pretty damn well in this preseason. Most people say that the preseason is meaningless and there's nothing to get excited about. Now let me tell you something, pal.
Those people would be mostly right.
However, the preseason is an indication of one thing only, really. How well your farm teams are going to do, and how well your team will deal with injuries. And that's something Canucks fans can get excited about, we have depth. If that isn't new for this team, I don't know what is. With players seriously exceeding expectations (honestly, where did Oberg come from? I didn't expect him to do this well. Makes things harder for AV) and most veterans living up to expectations, like the Sedins, why not get a little excited over this preseason?
Come October 1st, we'll see if pre-season excitement is founded or not. I, for one, am a bundle of optimism with this team.
Anyone with me?
