So it's been 5 years since the Canucks won their season opener?

Can't believe NHL about to start in 12 mins.

LA vs CHI NBC

WPG vs OTT CBC

Canucks win the Cup this year. Didn't think they were going to go deep last year for a number of years.

But this is the year.

I was at Rogers when Hamhuis got hit by Getzlaf and suffered a concussion.

I don't like the feeling I get when Canucks play ducks.

Ducks d Bryan Allen expecting all kinds of penalties. Thinks refs will err on side of clamp down until they get their feel/timing back #NHL

Alain Vigneault says Canucks won’t be going with 12 forwards, nine defenceman for very long

Don’t get too accustomed to the roster the Vancouver Canucks introduce Saturday night for their season opener Anaheim Ducks.

Coach Alain Vigneault said that he can’t see the Canucks running with the 12-forward, nine-defenceman format for an extended period.

Rearguard Cam Barker, Andrew Alberts and Jim Vandermeer are the scratches against the Ducks, while Andrew Ebbett has the second-line centre gig, winning the spot from Jordan Schroeder in training camp.

He’s between Mason Raymond and Zack Kassian to start against the Ducks. Henrik and Daniel Sedin are with Alex Burrows on the first line, while Max Lapierre is between Chris Higgins and Jannik Hansen on the third line and the fourth features Dale Wiese and Aaron Volpatti flanking Manny Malhotra.

Defence pairings see Kevin Bieksa and Dan Hamhuis together, while new contract man Alex Edler is with Jason Garrison and Chris Tanev teams with Keith Ballard.

“For the time being, this is how we’re going to start, but I would not predict us keeping nine defencemen very, very long, if I was in the prediction business,” he said.

Vigneault said the fact that Schroeder could be set down without needing waivers played into the Canuck decision.

“It was part of the early decision that we had to make,” Vigneault said. “I thought Schroeds played really well, especially that last game. That being said, Andrew had a real strong camp also. He has more experience and in Chicago he had been their most consistent forward.”

Finally some live Canucks hockey. I've about had my fill of old clips of the past for awhile.

I'm sorry, that second line is dreadful and it needs to be said.

Not sure how this team is going to score on an even-strength level.

With Cory Schneider starting tonight it marks the first time since the 05-06 season Roberto Luongo didn't start to open the year. #Canucks
