To distract us temporarily from the war we are about to engage in with the sharks.
I thought I'd pull a fun topic off the HFboards and we could discuss it amongst just us Nucks.

So who from our current roster has the best hockey smarts? and which player has the worst?

Best Hockey IQ : Burrows

I know, the Sedins could be right up there as well but Burrows has had a different road to the NHL.
What kept him around is just how smart he is, and several players comment on it.
He just thinks the game so well, he can succeed in every aspect of it.
Who else can be put on any line and make it a threat, give the sedin's exactly what they need, and would be the first forward to play defense if needed as A.V. has said before.

Worst IQ: I honestly can't really pick this one, maybe you guys will be better at it than me.
Maybe i just don't want to say its Edler cause i've always thought he would turn into something special... maybe thats why he just can't put it all together....
Probably Sostitos.

Honorable mention of a past canucks: Tanner Glass hands down!

Worst hockey iq IMO is sestito. Something about watching that guy play always ends up with me yelling at him through my tv.

Hammer is the smartest

And Kassian does some dumb stuff

Burrows' game doesn't rely on IQ

And tostitos doesn't seem dumb at all.

From all the interviews and Play on ice I have witnessed.

I honestly believe Cam Barker is below normal intelligence levels, I think he has a splash of downs

Not even joking or trolling

Hank definitely #1 I think he's definitely a little smarter on the ice than Daniel even tho I'm a Daniel fan.

Also, honorable mentions : Higgy, Burr, Hamhuis.


Low IQ is tough to say... so I won't give anyone it

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

how could i not have picked AV for worst, lol. Nice one.

Who cares how it ends TimberWolf... Its just for fun.

Be nice to see people give reasons for their choices and actually discuss it
The sedin's have very high offensive IQ,
but i really think Burrows thinks the whole game all around just a bit better.

What does it rely on then? Tenacity? French Canadian Trolling skills? lol

He sure knows how to pick his spots for the sedins, and keep their plays alive
is defensive positioning not considered hockey smarts?

I'm not trying to be a jerk, I'm genuinely curious.

Worse hockey IQ is AV. The guys used to be a goon back when he played and must of took too many punches in the head.

Hank is the obvious #1. Danny's 1B just by the virtue of Hank being a centre.

Sestito's got to have the lowest. Nothing against him of course, because I don't expect him to have a high hockey IQ, he's a 4th line enforcer and that's not part of the job requirement.

Booth has the worst IQ. He has tremendous speed and skill, but isn't very effective due to his hockey IQ.

I would say after the Sedins it is Tanev and Raymond. Both always seem to know what;s going on around them at any given time.

Lowest definitely Booth .................and Sestito and Weise come next.

Having the best hockey IQ does not necessarily make you the best player and vice versa.
