No More Holes!

You can never have "too much depth", but with Kesler and Booth coming back, dare I say thats what we've got?

I'd like Kassian with the Sedins, but then again I'd like to see Kassian with Kesler.

Yea! We have our secondary scoring working which I think was lacking for the past seasons!

Lack of right handed D.

No PP specialist,despite what the fan boys thought Garrison was to bring to the table.

No face off specialist to fill Manny's departure.

PP sucks with all that talent still. PP was a problem last playoffs, and SCF.

@ OP: I'd switch Hansen onto the 2nd and Booth on the 3rd.

The problem this year may be too many options. I don't even want to know how many different line combinations AV will try out. :lol:

I just hope our team stays relatively healthy.

I think we may need more depth at center. A third line center would be nice.

Not sure how Schroeder would hold up in the playoffs when it gets tougher.

Raymond Schroeder Hansen - Will get pushed around too easily.

^^^^^ Agreed on the third line and size. That being said, if they score and our power play makes the opposition pay during the playoffs, then the size issue won't matter....but it is an issue for sure. Kassian won't be double shifting during the playoffs.

Face off specialist center and right handed D PP specialist are holes that need to be filled before the playoffs.

This has been covered extensively in the media.

The question being if Gillis is now too afraid or has changed his mind to trade Luo-who goes to fill those positions?

I've been saying this for the last couple of seasons - then the playoffs come around and the Canucks get injured.

It's not the best team that wins the playoffs, it's the least injured team.

I'm more likely than not outnumbered in my opinion, but I'm not really confident in our D-core. Both Hamhuis and Edler looked terrible last year in the playoffs and I never really did think Bieksa was good at anything other than physicality. The only pair I'm truly confident in thus far is Tanev and Ballard. I hope they prove me wrong but I guess we'll find out.

Schroeder demoted

Lapierre on 3rd line

Ebbett in... 4th line
