Criteria: had to of played one game or more; current day franchise (1970's to date) and no more than 3 names...the more obscure names the better...

Troy Gamble- he was horrible
Marc Chouinard- worst contract Nonis paid for an overachiever
Byron Ritchie- how he played on the pp as a point man ill never know...

^^^ Allow me to kick things off then...

MARK MESSIER!
There is no one that was more overhyped, useless, lazy, overpaid underachiever than this guy. And then years after his retirement he even has the nerve to demand money from us.

Easily the worst Canuck ever.

Why the negative thread?

Besides, Troy Gamble has nothing on Martin Brochu. 6 games played, 0 wins, 4.17 GAA

Are we talking worst as in "least skilled" or worst as in "was worst for the franchise"?

I don't think you could argue against Messier being the worst thing to happen to the Canucks.. As for least skilled? I have no idea...

Troy Gamble the concussed goalie.

Mark Messier takes the cake though being a low life who every Canuck fan on this planet should be obligated to hate.

That was quite unfortunate for him.

If I remember correctly, didn't Linden give him one of those concussions in practice?

Eric Weinrich.

He was a trade deadline addition at a time when it felt like we needed a little push to really contend. He turned out to be Nonis' 39 year-old buddy who looked lost on the ice, even between whistles. It was the first time I ever thought a trade deadline addition made us a worse team. 16 GP. 0 Points. -13. He never played in the NHL again. It was like he came here to die.

Steve Bernier.

I've never seen a 6'3" 220lb guy play like such a wimp. Until I looked up his stats, I thought he was 6' 195lb. I know it was only two years, but it felt like he was here FOREVER. Probably because he seemed like a huge disappointment every time he stepped on the ice.

Geoff Courtnall.

I'm including him for personal reasons. I met him when I was 12 and he was a total dick to me and my friend during a Canucks team event called Pasta da Puck.

Definitely not the worst in terms of skill, but I specifically remember years of intense anxiety every time Brent Sopel stepped onto the ice. Over-used, over-rated...

Depends on what you're talking about, I mean if you're talking about someone who had a negative impact on the franchise that had a far reaching effect, then yeah I think you could throw in Messier, but in terms of bad players who lacked skill and had no business being in the NHL... well there's Brochu and Ouellet off the top of my head.

Daniel Sedin. What kind of twin fails to win both the Art Ross Trophy and the Hart Trophy like his brother did the year before, instead winning the Ted Lindsay Trophy. Bum.

I seem to recall Marek Malik to be a liability most of the time, I'll never know how he had the highest +/- rating that one year.

Jan Bulis jokes will always be funny. Always. I can't remember a Canuck who so constantly and consistently infuriated me. Easily the worst Canuck ever.

He is just a fan who skated with them as a publicity stunt. Thats like saying Justin Bieber is a Leaf because he skated with them.

Mark Messier, bar none, was the worst Canuck ever. Nearly killed the franchise single-handedly.

Craig Coxe was a talentless punching bag for a few seasons. Tim Hunter was, as well.

Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

....whose time in Vancouver was an unmitigated disaster. He was brought in as the "last piece of the puzzle". By the end of his first season here we had Linden, McLean, Gelinas, and other core players shipped out and the team missed the playoffs the entire time he was here. Sorry I think a lot of Messier's so-called leadership is really a myth.

Eric Weinrich gets an honourable mention as we gave up a 2nd rounder for a guy who clearly couldn't play anymore. Further proof that making a deal at the trade deadline isn't always the smart thing to do.
