  1. Sedins - Vrbata Baertchi-Horvat-Virtanen Burrows-McCann-Hansen Proust-Sutter-Dorsett Vey Elder-Tavev Hamhuis-Sbisa Corrado-Bartkowski Weber Forget where the money is, this is what I think it should be. First line is a loaded veteran line. Second is kids who have speed, energy and can score. Third is speed and aggressiveness, good checking while potting a few of their own. Fourth is size to pound the opposition and defensively responsible. Cracknell won't make it, easily sent down. Hutton should be here but until a trade is made on D (Hamhuis at the deadline?) there is no room. Hutton decision is about money and waivers unfortunately, not talent.
  2. I voted yes, at least for 9 games. I think there is something to be said for having the youngsters play together. They think similarly and have the same creative ideas. They haven't become stagnant or jaded. Give it an opportunity, similar to Tampas triplets.
  3. I think they pickup a UFA as they typically do. I hope they keep Dorsett as he's the kind of guy they need, hard nosed and brings it every game. Same for Kennins. I'd prefer to keep Matthias, drop Horvat to the fourth and Gaunce to the minors, but one way or the other I just don't see him. Lineup isn't exact by a long shot, but.... Sedin - Sedin - Burrows Bonino - Vey - Vrbata Virtanen - Horvat - Kassian Kennins - Gaunce - Dorsett For the D, with no capgeek I can't see what the outcome of the forward cap hit is without more work than I'm willing to put in at this point. I'd like to see Hamhuis and Bieksa with less minutes as it would mean that Stanton and Clendening are growing. Leave Hamhuis and Bieksa with sub 20, but very quality minutes. What I'd like to see is.... Edler - Tanev Stanton - Clandening hamhuis - Bieksa
  4. It's time for Hansen to go. His best year, like others, was 2011 when he played with Malholtra and Torres. Manny is 6'4" 220 and We all know how Torres plays. Not exactly hard to elevate your game and play physical when guys like that are your line mates. Hansen has wheels, but not enough of a leader and not the right skill set for this team any longer. He needs to make room for the younger players.
  5. A lot of people compare him to Bertuzzi, fair or unfair. Lokking up stats, Bertuzzi didn't break 20 goals until he was 24. at 22 years old he had 13 goals split between the islanders and Canucks.
  6. Good Luck to Luongo. He was a class act the last couple years.
  7. I like it, but i'd prefer to keep Bieksa. Swap out for Edler and adjust the picks appropriately.
  8. We trade Edler, if for nothing else, we have 4 guys making $4.5+M per season and Tanev is going to want in the $3M range. That's a lot for a 5th dman. Because of this, one of the 5 needs to go and Edler likely has the highest return. Depending on what you can fetch for Edler will dictate what you do with Kesler. If Edler gets at #1/2 center or winger to play with Kesler then we keep him. If you getA grade prospects and picks, then you trade Kesler. Personally, I hope for the center/winger.
  9. Regardless of the player we get in return, they better have size for the line they play on. You look at the top teams in our division and they are all huge. No shrimps need apply here. We need to be able to compete within our division if we are going to have a chance at the conference or league.
  10. 3-1 Canucks with an empty netter. Weise tries to run someone because he's bitter that he got traded, Sestito kicks the crap out of him.
  11. Linden doesn't want the job. In fact I doubt he wants anything to do with the organization. Whether it was Burke, Noonis, Gillis or Aqualini, they all recognize that if they liked him or not, the city loves him and he would be an asset to the organization. If Linden wanted a job with the Canucks he'd have it in a heart beat. He has all the qualifications as previously mentioned. He has the following. Does he want the job?
