Simple poll.
Some players were included in both questions just because they are popular names.

As I stated in another topic, my vote for MVP goes to Dan Hamhuis.
My vote for biggest disappointment goes to Mason Raymond.

Vote and discuss.

Hammer as MVP. Where would our D be without his steadying influence?

Kes is the biggest disappointment. I know the he's still not right from the surgery, but on too many nights he looked to be going through the motions. Wishful thinking is that he's been saving himself for the playoffs.

MVP: Chris Higgins or Cory Schneider

Disappointment: Ryan Kesler. Even though he had surgery and missed training camp, pre season and a few regular season games, he could've produced a few more points.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

It's Henrik. His performance without Daniel again sealed that.

Luongo and Schneider split the goaltending vote.

Kesler and Higgins have been out. As is Daniel, who was quite brutal offensively for awhile before Keith KO'd him.

Burrows is likely going to win 'most exciting player' award.

Hamhuis. Yeah, you gotta dig that +/-. But you know why it's so high? That would be Henrik.

Most disappointing is obvious. Raymond's production is not even close to where it should be considering his linemates and icetime.

Kesler hasn't been as awesome offensively this season compared to last, but he does so much more than Raymond otherwise. Like not fall down on his own. Cheers.

MVP: Dan Hamuis or Chris Higgins

Disappointment: SO FAR, Ryan Kesler, but just wait until the playoffs folks, he'll light it up, he's a god damn workhorse, I don't think he even is a disappointment, he does so many little things that go unnoticed, so my disappointment is..... Mason Raymond. He won't do anything in the playoffs, let alone the regular season...

As for Malhotra, him playing at all is a miracle. Disappointment? That's relative.

Higgins has been our MVP imo. Considering his role, contract, and where he's playing on this team, he's done wonders. He's always the hardest working player on the ice, and has scored some clutch goals for us. I'm so glad MG got him at the deadline last year for almost nothing, and re-signed him. I hope he stays a Canuck for a long time!

Raymond is the obvious disappointment. Sure I'll cut him some slack, he's returning from a career-threatening injury so kudos to him. But considering his ice time, his role, and constantly being placed on the 2nd line, I'll say that he's been a big disappointment. Hopefully he returns to top form next year and starts putting up numbers again.

I had to chose Cory Schneider as MVP, as he's consistently the best player on the team. Even Hank went through a 8 game spam were he only had 1 point. So thats why Schneider gets my vote.

MDP, Manny Malhotra. He was terrible this year.

Players Nikolaj Ehlers have been compared too by the fan base of the Vancouver Canucks.


1 Pavel Bure

2 Markus Naslund

3 Nathan Mackkinon

4 Jonathan Drouin.

5 Jonathan Tavares



combine results.  Ehlers 5'11 162 lbs of solid rock.

Hammer Time or Hank for MVP

Ballard's been the biggest disappointment again in my opinion. I really thought he would at least be able to earn part of that super-sized salary he's making this year and so far (partly because of injury and partly because of poor on-ice performance earlier in the season) that just hasn't happened. Having said that, I do believe that if #4 can get back in the lineup for the playoffs he could make a big impact for us. I really think he has a breakout in him, just needs health and confidence back and he could turn it all around

Henrik for team MVP
Kes/Raymond for the disappointment....but I think it should go to Kesler only because his achievment to expectation percentage is smaller than Raymonds
It only takes one hard fought series to make a rivalry

MVP by far is Hammer in my books (highly underrated and plays against the top pairings all the time)

Disappointment - Mason Raymond (injury hampered him, but I thought he would have been a bit better down the stretch).

For those who are saying Kes..come on! Sure he hasn't scored much and isn't playing great now, but this guy does it all. Kills penalties, pp, battles in front, wins draws. I do think tho that maybe last year went to his head a bit...and he may have had some outside distractions this year too...

Why wouldn't Luongo be the MVP? He's been the only reason we have won alot of our games, and he was probably the Difference between us winning and Losing in about 2/3rds of his Starts,

This Team is 3rd in the West Tops Without him. (And only because our Divison is so bad)

Why is David Booth on the disappointment list?? Sure he's been slumping lately, but he's been a pleasant surprise for me, if anything.

Higgins is our team MVP. Henrik and Daniel have been below a point-a-game, Kesler is on pace for just 50 points and we only have 1 30-goal scorer on the team, so our stars are clearly not the ones carrying this team offensively.

Higgins has been our best forward all season long IMO, if he was on our top line he'd be scoring at a 30-goal, 60+ point pace easily if it weren't for those injuries either. When he's in the lineup he's consistently producing and he is the one carrying whichever line he's on right now.

Initially I thought he just gelled well with Kesler and Booth, but since being taken off that line and put onto the 3rd the American duo has struggled mightily which tells alot considering they're both great players, but still require Higgins to produce. Instead, Pahlsson and Hansen have been unreal so far with Higgins.

Up front, Henrik is playing well now but Higgins is still our MVP.
On defence, Hamhuis is our run-away MVP. Almost 0.5 PPG and a miraculous +/-, plus he's facing better opposition than Edler.
In net Luongo is our MVP, as great as Schneider has been Luongo's still playing more games and the team always plays terribly in front of him.

He makes 4.5 million....he is a huge disappointment. Kesler easily wins the award. You can call Raymond a disappointment, but much like Malhotra, its a miracle he is even playing. Did everyone forget he broke his back? Jeez

Hammer, Lou & Schnieds together, Higgins (nicest surprise)
