Oh please, Hansen is one of AV's pet projects, and as such, he lands on the first line with the Sedins. It's not that hard to start racking up points with the Sedins - even Wade Brookbank scored when thrown on a line with them.

Hmm... Rome gets power play time over guys like Ballard, and Rome manages to score two whole goals. Another pet project of AV's... it's enough to make the lesser fan delusional.

In your OP you stated that Hansen had "hands of stone" and basically had no finish around the net. Now, you seem to have changed your tune. Is it that Hansen has no finish or is it that, when put in situations with elite-level players, Hansen actually can get the job done?

As to your comment regarding Rome scoring "two whole goals", you omit the fact that he's only played 3 games. And you also overlook the fact that Rome had another goal called back.

I do agree with your last statement - it is enough to make the lesser fan delusional.

Kesler was lucky to score 20 this year since the injury to Morrison allowed him to do so.

I doubt Kesler would ever break 15 goals in his career again.

Just watch: Hansen will stick with the Sedins, put up 40 goals, and the OP of this thread will end up with a -957

What makes you think Ballard deserves PP time over Rome? With the way Ballard is playing, I also wouldn't give him PP time. Weak on defense and hasn't contributed much offensively. Yeah lets award him with PP time.

Except that I'd love to continue seeing this thread up, no matter what the month, over the past three years. Hansen is still the exact same player, except that he's been placed on the first line and is benefiting, just as Anson Carter did. It's pretty concerning, to be honest. I'm pretty sure that on 29 other NHL teams, Hansen is not a first liner. It's no wonder we're fallening from our record season last year to a .500 hockey club.

now youre just mad your sensational b.s. claims are wrong and what AV has done has worked. and that goes for the ballard and rome moves. ballard had his shot, he failed, so far rome is working better. burrows is injured and hansen was given his shot and it has worked. everyone is a pet project of AV, hes the damn coach, thats his job, especially this early in the season when the whole goal is finding your best lines and getting some chemistry going. stop trying to cover your ass, accept you were wrong in spouting off at the mouth 2 weeks in to the season.

Really? Hansen has a 2 goal game the other night. One was a good tip infront of the net and one was him working his ass off infront of the net to dig the puck out of the crease and pull it to his forehand. Hate to say it, as much as you can say Sedins made it happen, Hansen did the effort and created the opportunities himself.

I respect Jannik Hansen in that he's a hard working player. His passion is usually pretty evident, and he has wheels.

But I get so frustrated seeing his offensive inabilities... those hands of stone, which neutralizes an otherwise potentially exciting third line with Cody Hodgson and Manny Malhotra.

I know Hansen will always have his fans and followers because he has a low cap hit and high work ethic, but I'd argue that if the Canucks want to continue to be considered an elite team, they need to re-evaluate his worth. He's a plugger, and on most mediocre teams he fits the bill, but upon Raymond's return, Hansen is one of those guys who I'd omit from the lineup before Hodgson or anyone else.

You might suggest that Hansen provides that hard forchecking or sandpaper edge the Canucks lack, but he's not a true 'Raffi Torres' type, and we have a whole fourth line dedicated to the bumping and bruising. A line of Hodgson, Malhotra, and Raymond really interests me, and I think would give the Canucks the extra bit of offense they need in order to score first and win some games.


Sh*t, I just realized I forgot to neg you a few days ago.


Fixed that little doozie. I feel much better now :P

I appreciate the puck bunny Hansen fans out there, but let's be honest, Hansen doesn't have the offensive skills to be a legitimate first liner. It's disappointing that there isn't enough chemistry going on that AV can get away with putting Hansen there.

He has 4 goals in 17 games - yes, a powerhouse. His point percentage is 41% this season, up from his NHL point percentage average of 35%. Much of that has to do with the fact he's been placed with the Sedins the past few games, benefiting from the extra points.

Keep the minuses coming. It separates me from the puck bunnies with the rose-coloured glasses.

I don't think anyone expects him to be a first liner... You see an NHL team has 4 forward lines, and if a player has the ability to contribute on one of these 4 lines they can stick on a team. Hansen is a great 3rd liner, and has the potential to be a serviceable 2nd liner when he needs to be. Yes you are certainly separated from the puck bunnies with the rose-coloured glasses because while you both may be idiots, at least they support the team. That is all.

No one is saying Hansen is a 1st liner, and its not about rose-coloured glasses. Its almost the same situation as Burrows. Burrows has shown he can play hockey quite well without the Sedins 5-on-5 but no one is suggesting he is a 1st liner on most teams.

1st lines usually consist of 2 1st line players and a 2nd liner, while the second line usually is 2 2nd liners and a 1st line player.

Look around the league and see for yourself. Detroit had Franzen-Datsyuk-Bertuzzi last year as their first line and Bert is a 2nd liner now. Their second line was Filpula-Zetteberg-Cleary which Zett is a 1st liner and the other 2 are 2nd liners.
