Not just from goals and assists etc.

for the season personally I would say D.sedin. He has been looking Pretty good. Lately Hansen and Higgins have been stealing the show. Higs seems to be playing tough, and his screens are looking good. Don't know who no.1 would be for me though.

Any thoughts on yours?

Hansen's been the most consistent player for us.

There isn't any standout player, but I'd take Hansen.

I'll go with Henrik, just because he seems to be generating more scoring opportunities than anyone else. Tanev and Hansen would be tied for 2nd. They never seem to give less than 100% each and every shift.

Hansen has been awesome the last couple of games. That goal he made in the Sharks game was SICK. The pass from MayRay was amazing too. That line is really clicking now. I just wish Kassian would go back with the Sedins. He needs to get back to the way he was playing at the beginning of the season.

Relative to their cap hit I'd say Tanev or Hansen.

Hansen no doubt, His skillset has seemed to increased beyond what I thought his limits were, and he brings it nightly.

Hansen has been the most consistent so on both sides of the ice. The Sedins look dangerous almost every shift out there when they have the puck on the sideboards, jeez they are fun to watch.

No he doesn't. He needs to learn how to play D and be a consistent skater, not sneak around in the offensive zone and pot goals (that's easy for him on that line). He looked terrible in a bottom 6 role earlier in the season, but he's starting to look better. Hopefully he can take some strides in that style of game before the playoffs. I wish he would threaten the middle of the ice on the rush, but I'm satisfied for now with his improved energy level.

Hansen for sure, Tanev as well, also I'm going to go ahead and say Ballard, Him and Tanev were playing lights out but because of AVs jealousy and how he couldn't stand to see Ballard doing good, he decided to break that tandom up, which resulted in 2 bad games for Ballard and a benching...right down AVs plan!

Hansen and Higgins, our two most consistent forwards. They show that constant hard work gets rewarded, hopefully some of their teammates start to clue in.

I'm going to say Daniel Sedin. He's been consistantly good from game 1 til now.

not guys like Luongo, Schneider were hot at the beggining only. Now both are struggling at the same time?????? :picard: :sadno:

not Bieksa because because he wasn't very good the first 10 games. Now he's injured again.

Daniel Sedin, followed by, Henrik Sedin, then Hansen, then Tanev.

The NHL is a fixed old boys club. I've come to acceptance with that and just watch for entertainment. The 2011 & 2012 Canucks are champs in my books. Go Canucks Go!

I find this thread puts a positive spin on what seems to be a struggling season so far.....

Tanev......huge improvement since last year
Hansen ......totally finding his groove
MayRay.......very happy he's improved so much
Luongo.......with his new, better attitude

Tanev has been the most consistent and reliable.
Hansen has been great at times as well.

I wouldn't go with the either of the Sedins at this point, mostly as they have so underachieved on the PP (esp. Daniel).

Luongo was at the start of the season but has dropped off a lot.

Tanev.

I can't remember the last time I've seen a young d-man not get frustrated, or flustered. It's like the the guy is a textbook definition of a stay at home defender. Even when he makes mistakes he gets back into position to minimize a scoring chance.

He may never win a Norris trophy, but he's hands down one of the best players on the team by far.

I'm just wondering if next season he'll struggle with the sophomore jinx? I'm thinking no, because his game is so simple and so well executed.

Great work Chris!
