With all the buzz about our prospects. And it being a miserable rainy day I thought I`d pose the question to cdc what does everyone think the canucks depth chart will look like in 3-4 years.

Booth* Kesler ______
Sedin Sedin Jensen
Burr Gaunce Kassian
_____ MaxLap ______

Hansen will of course be anywhere at anytime as usual. from 1st to 4th line

Ham Juice
Ballard* Mr Garrison (I think Garri is just what ballard needs)
Connauton Corrado

People gone.
-Edler we will loose to free agency. Fingers crossed MG can make a deal for him before he walks a la hoff.
-Raymond just doesn`t fit on our team anymore (love the guy). He rips it up on another team.
- Tanev. Sure hes calm with the puck and has good passing and possesion numbers. but hes one dimensional. He can`t hit he cant score and hes not intimidating to anyone. (translated he is only useful if you already have a solid lead.
-J Schroder will get his shot to be on the team. And I will cheer for him very loudly. But he will be moved to make room for Gaunce.
- Ballard and Booth are on the cusp they may have potential to be very effective players or traded.
- Malhotra is the captain of the Canucks new affiliate ahl team in Abbotsford.

Im sure I forgot some people I will edit in a bit.

Still see the Sedins as 1st liners in 3 seasons, possibly 4 or heck even 5. So probably not much different than now with the exception of Kassian, Jensen in the top 9 and perhaps guys like Schroeder/Gaunce/ our next 1st rounder will be making an appearance. Kes, Hansen, Lapps and I think Booth will still be here, hopefully Raymond gets back on track and cements a spot too. I can see Tanev in the top 4.

so, something like

Sedin-Sedin-Kass/Jensen/future signing/draft
Booth/Raymond-Kes-Kass/Jensen
Burr-Schroeder/Gaunce-Hansen/Weise
Weise/Hansen-Lappierre-Mallet??

Hamhuis-Garrison
Tanev- Edler
Juice-Connauton?

Regardless, barring something completely unforeseen, unless we still have the Sedins and they are still producing star player numbers, I don't think we will be a Stanley Cup contender by that time.

I'd rather start a full rebuild by then, complete overhaul ala. Pitts, Chicago, Edmonton.

Something to be excited about instead of holding on to the geezers and be a mediocre team for another 40 years.

Please dont become the Flames...

i think we are going to have a few players moved or not resigned
like Booth, Raymond, Ballard, Hansen, Malholtra, etc....

i think the roster will look something like this

D.Sedin-H.Sedin-Jensen
Trade/FA/Draft-Kesler-Burrows
Higgins-Gaunce-Kassian
Grinder-Lapierre-Grinder

Edler-Garrison
Bieksa-Hamhuis
Connauton-Tanev/Corrado/other guy we acquire via trade or draft


Schneider
backup(we trade Lack in a few years because hes not better than schneider but hes a starter in the league)

I have a feeling Bieksa will be captain of the Canucks at some point. After the Sedins retire and before it's given to Kesler.. Even if it's just for a year.

If by rebuild you mean getting rid of geezers like the Sedins Burr Kes Juice. And dwelling in the basement like the Oil. I disagree I hope they spend their entire careers in the scowling orca just moving down the depth chart. And I see no reason why we couldn`t remain a cup contender all we will need is what we have always needed 1 elite winger and 1 more top pairing d the rest of the supporting cast will be as good as any in the league if not better.

sadly no. in 3-4 years sedin will not be the players they are today, its just a given. meanwhile you have young superstars entering their prime (oilers bunch for example), and a lot of young players continuing to dominate.

Watch Bowness somehow mess up Tampa Bay's already amazing 2 powerplay units...he'll probably tell Stamkos to do drop passes from centre ice, take him out from the faceoff dot, and place him infront of the goalie :lol:

The Sedins may still be our first liners in a few years but it won't be b/c they're still first line caliber It'll be b/c we don't have enybody else better. Though I'm hoping Kesler hasn't destroyed his body so bad that he can't be the #1 centre is a few years.

I really think it's hard to predict things like this, I thought the WCE would last much longer than it did, especially since they made all those changes after the lockout. It may very well be the same thing with this lockout and our present first line...

Also I don't know whether Kesler will ever be the player he was in 2010/11.

I don't think we'll have Higgins or Hansen on our team in four year's time... They're really good players, playing on a really good team right now. When our window (slowly) closes, like it will (whether you like it or not), they will be on other teams, much because there just isn't any reason for them to stay ere when we aren't a cup contender anymore. They're just too good to be playing the third line roles they have on the Canucks for their entire careers. Also with guys like Jensen, Gaunce and Kassian developing I just don't think that there's any room for them.

I do hope we keep Lapierre, he's one of my favorite players, and he could very well still be centering our third/fourth line in a few years.

Burrows I think will retire a Canuck, and I think that he'll end his career like he started it, with a bottom six role.

Ballard will be gone, there's just no room for him, especially with our D men prospects turning into full time NHLers...


Sedin - Sedin - Jensen/Kassian/signing
Booth (assuming he's not traded) - Kesler - Jensen/Kassian/signing
Signing/pick - Lapierre - Burrows
Signing/pick - Gaunce/signing/pick - signing/pick

Edler (I think he'll be a legit number one D man) - Garrison
Hamhius - Bieksa
Tanev - Connauton

Schneider
Signing/pick/Canntana

Nobody likes Grenier or Mallet? They have got some skill. 4 years time we will be rocking Sedins with our best RW at the time burr kass, grenier, Hansen depends on what's working at the time. We've got a lot of depth at the right wing position as far as prospects go, so I expect us to draft a C in the first round this year who will be a second or third liner at the 4 years from now mark hopefully, also insurance if Gaunce dosn't work out yet. Our 4 to 9 forwards are going to be such a tough call if they arn't producing they are gonna get called out by the fans and especially on CDC so expect changes every 2 years.

Sedin Sedin Burr
Jensen Kesler Kassian
Booth Gaunce/Schroeder Hansen
Mallet Lapierre Grenier for the french connection

Edler Garrison
Bieksa Hamhuis
Connauton Tanev/Corrado

Jensen Booth can flip flop same with Kassian Hansen and Hansen/Kass could play first line from time to time if the old guys need some younger legs. Lots of skill and size on this roster Friesen, Schroeder, Sweatt and Rodin could all potentially crack the lineup if they had a big year. Even though the 4th line consists of 2 guys who have yet to prove anything much at the pro level I like what they bring on a nightly basis, passion for the game, physical presence and work ethic. Just my opinion, but feel free to shoot it down! :)

You really think the Canucks will actually use their top prospects? lol jk

I think the team being the way it is, we will eventually trade for a big player rather than wait for our prospects to develop. It could be anybody so I'm not gonna write down who I think it will be, it might come back to bite me later. :lol:

You just have to be better than the guy across from you... Every guy in this locker room I can say believes we can do this." - Ryan Kesler

I completely agree that Ballard and Garrison will be good together. Last year Garrison had Campbell passing the puck to him and if Ballard can pass the puck like Campbell, they will get lots of points

With all the buzz about our prospects. And it being a miserable rainy day I thought I`d pose the question to cdc what does everyone think the canucks depth chart will look like in 3-4 years.

Booth* Kesler ______
Sedin Sedin Jensen
Burr Gaunce Kassian
_____ MaxLap ______

Hansen will of course be anywhere at anytime as usual. from 1st to 4th line

Ham Juice
Ballard* Mr Garrison (I think Garri is just what ballard needs)
Connauton Corrado

People gone.
-Edler we will loose to free agency. Fingers crossed MG can make a deal for him before he walks a la hoff.
-Raymond just doesn`t fit on our team anymore (love the guy). He rips it up on another team.
- Tanev. Sure hes calm with the puck and has good passing and possesion numbers. but hes one dimensional. He can`t hit he cant score and hes not intimidating to anyone. (translated he is only useful if you already have a solid lead.
-J Schroder will get his shot to be on the team. And I will cheer for him very loudly. But he will be moved to make room for Gaunce.
- Ballard and Booth are on the cusp they may have potential to be very effective players or traded.
- Malhotra is the captain of the Canucks new affiliate ahl team in Abbotsford.

Im sure I forgot some people I will edit in a bit.

Thanks for participating.


kesler over the sedins? thats a joke and a half. kesler has already started the decline while the sedins haven't. kesler is over rated and i really hope he is traded or learns how to pass the dang puck

Only time will tell, but I think we would more likely see Gaunce at the 3C position in 3-4 years time than Schroeder.

Boy, so many variables at play! I'll be wrong, but oh well (so will the rest of you :P)

Jensen - Gaunce - Kesler (Booth?)
(people criticized Tavares' skating too but I think Brendan has enough talent to be up here; also put Kes on Brendan's wing because I think that Ryan can have the effect that Mats Sundin had on him, in that they play similar styles; also Kes is on the wing if his body can't take centering responsibilities)
(If Schroeder proves he's good for Top 6 or Gaunce doesn't pan out: Jensen - Kesler - Schroeder)

Danny - Henrik - Kassian (the Twins should be 2nd line talents by now and I think that's Zack's upside)

Third line candidates:
Burrows/Rodin* - Lapierre/ Gaunce* - Hansen/ Schroeder*
(If Burr hasn't retired or if Rodin and Schroeder make it (but if Gaunce/ Schroeder don't show Top-6 upside))

Fourth line candidates:
Mallet - Lapierre - Grenier*... who else?
(don't know much about Alex Grenier but he's got size and could become another poor-man's Kassian...?)

Edler - Tanev (I'd put Chris up here only if he matures physically and develops his shot; if not Garrison can take this place)
Hamhuis - Connauton (I sometimes wonder whether Kevin will become another M.A. Bergeron but he's here for the time being)
Garrison - Corrado (I think Frankie could surprise and lock things down in the back end, but he'll only be 22)

*NOTE: I took Bieksa out since I don't think he'd be physically able to keep up that style at age 34, and maybe he'll retire or MG will let him go in free agency or become a depth guy

Lack/ Schneider (some combination; wouldn't be surprised if Eddie pulled a Pekka Rinne)
