Summer’s over, Vancouver. How can you tell?

Because we Canucks fans must finally wake up, roll out of bed, and face the cold, hard light of day – we have to fight through the hangover that was last season, the worst kind of drunk night where five straight years atop our division, all spent as a Stanley Cup contender, were wiped out viciously by our team’s own fumbles and inability to do basically anything after Christmas.

For NHL.com’s Dan Rosen, who has been leading the network’s 30 in 30 series, he sees our Canucks in the playoffs in 2015.

“I think they purge away last season,” Rosen says in his preview, above. “I still like their forward group, gotta love the Sedins. I think (Nick) Bonino’s a clutch player. Ryan Miller comes in, he will stabilize that goaltending.”
