All-MVP Line-up (too tough to just pick one!)

Burrows (team leader in GWG with 7!) - Hank (play making beast) - Higgins (all-round Mr. Consistency)
Hammer (+37, strong two-way guy, more well-rounded than Bieksa) - Edler (rising star, could reach 50 points tomorrow)
Schneider (even better GAA (under 2!) and SV% (.937) than Lu, with 20 W in only 33 starts)

Honorable Mentions/ Taxi Squad: Lu, Danny, Bieksa

John 3:16
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

2012, meet Matthew 24:36-47!

14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

If Higgins hadn't been sidelined with staph infections for large portions of the season, and subsequently spent a number of games getting back into shape, I think he would be close to the top of the list.

H...S should definitely be our MVP!!!
Whether that is Henrik Sedin, Higgins or Hansen I am not sure...
Henrik is ultra skilled and if you emphasize points like the NHL MVP it would be the Ironman himself.

Higgins is the star.. I mean straw... That stirs the drink for the Canucks. Incredibly hardworking and underrated around theeague, every line he is on succeeds. It is no coincidence that our best line, the third one, is our best. Neither is the fact that the first line we have had worthy of a name since the WCE has him on it!

Hamhuis is by far our best defensemen and without him (like Letang in Pitt) our D is lost and crumbles.

I had to say Higgins has been the most consistent and energetic forward this season for us. He really pushed the team when we needed it.
He only narrowly beats Henrik (captain, who along with his brother pulled the team when it was struggling early in the season) and Hamhuis who has been brilliant all season.
Disapoinment would be Kesler. But that's saying something about our team, when my biggest disapointment is a player who is still playing at the level Kesler is. He does it all, he has just struggled to score this year, and that is why I chose him.

Higgins has been a great surprise and a very hard and consistent worker, and a leader on this team in terms of bringing it every game...

But all you people picking him as the Team MVP are seriously insane.

There is a "hard hat award" or "heart and soul" award or something for what Chris Higgins brings to the team.

Chris Higgins is like, say, Jim Peplinski on the 89 Flames. Important? Absolutely. MVP? No, that goes to someone like MacInnis / Vernon / Nieuwendyk...

Or Brian Skrudland on the old Canadiens, or Charlie Huddy on the old Oilers... You get the idea...

Anyone who is disappointed in Raymond this year thinks too highly of him in the first place.

I voted Hank and Manny respectively.

MVP is definately the goaltending tandem: both Lu and Schenieds > not sure where the team would be in the standing without their performances. They held the team up many nights.
And MVP runner ups: Hamhuis, Burrows and Higgins (but missed too many games)

Dissapointment: Booth (I guess I was expecting more from him), Raymond (can't even stand watching him anymore), Malholtra (eye injury doesn't help) and definately Kesler (but again he does it all on the ice except this year his point production was way below par)

Best surprise & exciting to watch on the team: Lapierre has been fun to watch this year and especially lately with Henrik & Burr !

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.

He got hit in the eye with a puck and he is still top 5 in face offs in the league. There is more to hockey than goals.

Most Valuable Player: Roberto Luongo 1
Biggest Disappointment: Mason Raymond 21
I'm saying Aladeen a lot because http://forum.canucks...dpost__10922428

I bet when Schneider turns 38, he will have broken all of Luongo's records.

HIGGINS. how can you even argue that. If it wasnt for him getting sick, he would be closing in on 25 goals not to mention he grinds, works his ass off every shift and he lightens the mood of all the players around him.

MVP: Luongo - got us a lot of points despite the lack of spirit and mentality. His stellar play is a big reason why we're in the race for the President's trophy (Schniederman is a close second)

Disappointment: MayRay - he's shown the ability to pick up his overall game but he chooses to go back to his mistakes. He's a player with a huge variety of assets to make him a great player but he chooses the alternative of going back to his mistakes.
