Just a few games shy of the regular season’s halfway mark, there’s one thing I’m certain of regarding the Vancouver Canucks’ 2013-14 fate.

They are one or two sizeable second-half injuries away from missing the post-season.

Say it isn't so. I wish I could.

The Canucks are just too thin at key positions and are currently built to withstand a few injuries at most. No one wants to see them get hit by a rash of injuries, or god forbid a multitude. A multitude always trumps rash.

So with pretty much half-a-season in the books I asked Canucks Twitter nation to finish either one of these sentences.

A) The Canucks will make the playoffs because ...

B) The Canucks will miss the playoffs because ...

@bobbyboucher604: Will make playoffs: playing we injury better when healthy. Wont make playoffs: Epic collapse down stretch due to burn out from injuries.

We are in violent agreement on this.

@HankOnFood: Canucks will make the playoffs because they are fixing errors from the early season & are building momentum as usual.

That's basically the mantra I'm hearing coming from behind the bench.

@RobTheHockeyGuy: Canucks will make the playoffs because Torts won't let them miss

Let me tell you something I don't want to miss — Torts being Torts in the Stanley Cup playoffs.
