well we have lost daniel before and we did fine but this season teams upgraded in size and skill this is where we'll regret trading hodgson because now we getting close to the playoffs we could get out of the first round but the 2nd round will be harder if we face chicago or detroit both teams just as good as us and detroit with skill through all the line combos

Thanks to Kesler, we managed to beat Nashville last year without either Sedin.


Wait...what's that? They were playing???


If the Sedin's weren't playing, then Weber and Suter can just focus on kesler....
I doubt he would have the same production

*touch wood* If Daniel doesn't return in time for the first round or perhaps even the second round, will the team survive that far?


The team seems to be surviving quite well without him so far. He is a softie in the playoffs anyway. No loss.

If Kesler ever returns to last year's form, then yes, arguably! :lol:

.....He won't in my opinion you'll never see that from him again.And I don't mean a slightly elevated 2 game stretch.

I don't think the Canucks should be written off without Daniel in the line-up. He is obviously a big loss (a former Art Ross/Ted Lindsay Trophy winner? How could that not be a loss?) but Henrik has played well without him before. I would be more concerned if it was Henrik since we need as much strength as possible down the center of the ice right now. It's "easier" to lose a winger, especially with the depth we have at wing.

........Unfortunately that's all a lot of cdc users have to hang onto.This season he's done jack crap so instead of being infactuated with what he did last season hope he shows up soon.Myself i wouldn't hold your breath waiting.......................Sorry double post sort of this site is really screwed tonight.When i posted this my first post showed up.Hey what did you do there maybe you could do the same for Kesler.Sorry! I should have realized that was too much to ask.

You never know. Season returning from injury/surgery, and he's still only 27. I wouldn't count him out just yet.

I'm sure we can see beast mode from him in the playoffs though, so at least he can contribute when it counts.

...........Maybe go over to your window and look eastward I think the sky is falling.................I still think we will do well in the SC I just don't think he'll play the big role he should or what everyone is waiting to see.

I don't know.. lately Raymond, Sedin and Kassian/Lap have looked good as a line. I think if they check the kesler line the new Sedin line can still do some damage.

The only way we will get far in the playoffs this year is if our NEW checking line scores.

it reminds me of the ducks cup run. It was that checking line that did most of the work and got the team far.

Same with the Hawks on their run.

So Higgins, Paulson and Hansen better push it to the limit. Although I prefer Burrows on that line and move Higgins up to Keslers.

Burrows played a much better defensive shutdown game for sure.

Personally, I believe this Canuck team does have enough depth. There is no "I" in team and if they cannot perform because one of their player's has been injured then we probably shouldn't be there.

Line 1
Booth, Kesler, Higgy

Line 2
Raymond, Sedin, Burrows

Line 3
Hansen, Sammi, Duco

Line 4
Malholtra, Lapi, Wiese

Im hopeful we make it past the 1st round and Daniel is ready to go at that time. No excuse not to go at least that far... i have a hard time believing we'd beat a Detroit, Nashville or St.Louis without Daniel tho.

No. you are all being very overly optimistic. In reality, it will be very hard to win consistantly against the very best teams in the league without our number one goal scorer.

round 1 - Probobly
round 2 - Maybe
round 3 - probobly not
round 4 - no

Why is it necessary to use so many dots, and to use such a childish and completely irrelevant remark just because I disagree with your opinion? I'm sorry, apparently you can look into the future, my apologies for ever doubting you. Seriously, how do you know that Kesler won't ever produce numbers like that again in his career? He's 27, in his prime, and now has better linemates than he did last year. At least provide a logical reply.
And SCF? Oh right, I forgot you can see into the future. We're guaranteed a spot in the Finals, right? Good lord. :picard:

Actually I didn't mean in his career I mean't as a Canuck because I believe his days as a Van Canuck are coming to an end.I wanted him traded at the deadline but I doubt he would have fetched anyone of note with the way his game is at present.Also it was an obvious mistake while typing putting SCF instead of SC.

If the pens can be challenging for first overall without sid for the whole season we can get there without Daniel. Just means other guys have to play a bigger role.

Second line will need to step up and score some big goals. Henrik will need to find a way to start getting Kassian and Raymond some good chances (or more they need to find a way to take adv of his talent). And some fortunate timing from our grinders, we'll be ok...

Last night's game was very promising...they played an excellent, simple, team game. Not exciting but efficient and effective...They have played awful all of march and they still have a chance at the presidents, this team can get there...they just have to want it..

I hope you're trolling. Doubt he would have fetched much? The way his game is at present?

The Canucks can win without Daniel Sedin. He will be missed, but he is one amongst 20 players - the best teams can win with a key player out. What the Canucks can't afford is to lose a couple defensemen - but no team can. The Canucks are capable of shutting teams down - the most important aspect of playoff hockey - and now more than ever their lineup, from top to bottom, can be very difficult to score against.
People have used this injury as an opportunity to argue that the Hodgson trade will hurt more with Daniel's loss - I disagree - when it comes to the 20 players the Canucks dress, Hodgson was not as important as the goaltenders, not as important as any of the top 6 defensemen, not as important as the players on the top two lines, not as valuable a two-way player as his linemates Higgins and Hansen, and it is debatable whether he was more vital than the shutdown centers on the fourth line... In other words, he was a role player. Without him, Pahlsson has more than filled the gap he left, and Kassian can used on any line and in as many situations, albeit different than Hodgson was - if anything, the two forwards the Canucks acquired added depth and will help make up for Daniel's injury moreso than if those deadline deals were not made.

At least if we get taken out early we have the excuse of losing last years league scoring leader to a cheapshot

Danny's status isn't updated cuz they want to give him extended time to rest up. Or to avoid another key player getting injured before playoffs. We are quited secured in 2nd place already, so no point taking unnecessary risk...
