I was reading the forums a bit and noticed a lot of CDC members being disappointed about the Canucks not drafting a player from BC. So just got me thinking if a team was constructed of only active BC born players, what would it look like. Unfortunately I am not very informed who is and is not born in bc but my list so far is . many blanks to fill sorry.

Milan Lucic -Ryan Nugent-Hopkins- Jamie Benn

Evander Kane- Shawn Horcroff - Troy Brouwer

Andrew Ladd-Kyle Turris -Brandon Yip

Aaron Volpatti - Brendan Morrison - Chuck Kobesew


Shae Weber - Dan Hamhuis
Brent Seabrook - Barrett Jackman
Cody Franson - Willie Mitchell

Carey Price
Labarbera


Not Stanley cup material but not bad. Did I miss anyone?

I made a thread a few months ago putting together the best players from each province.

I'll see if I can find it and compare it to your team.

Edit: That was easy.

I don't like Brandon Yip on the third line, but solid defence

Lineup is good, but I would substitute Brett Connoly for Yip and Colin Fraser for Volpatti. Also think a pair of Jason Garrison and Josh Georges will be solid as well.

Milan Lucic - Ryan Nugent-Hopkins - Jamie Benn
Evander Kane - Kyle Turris - Andrew Ladd
Brendan Morrison - Shawn Horcoff - Troy Brouwer
Jerred Smithson - Colin Fraser - Chuck Kobasew

Dan Hamhuis - Shea Weber
Duncan Keith - Brent Seabrook
Willie Mitchell - Jason Garrison
(Josh Gorges, Eric Brewer, Barrett Jackman, Karl Alzner, Cody Franson, Scott Hannan)

Carey Price
Jason Labarbera


Not the greatest forward line-up at all...the centres either lack lots of skill or lack lots of size and there is no star power there, but the top 4 wingers are all premier young power forwards which is sweet. But the defence...my god that's beautiful. Deep as all hell, versatile, and tough. Labarbera isn't the best back-up in the world, but Carey Price is the best young goalie in the game, IMO.

Overall, it's one tough as nails, shutdown line-up. Obviously they'd build their game around Carey Price and their freaking tremendous blue line. It'd be very physical and defensive.

The real question is, how would they fare in a battle of the provinces?

Forwards are nice, but man that defense. That's about as solid as it gets.

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

That isn't Stanley cup winning material? Jesus Christ.
