可以 tends to be a question or asking permission. As a statement it is a translated differently. From the English to Chinese the phrase omits 可以, but from Chinese to English it will be phrased as a, "may". Like in English may 可以 and can 可能 are different.

This sentence doesn't seem natural at all. I don't even know in which context it would be honestly.
