JT Miller still doesn't get as much credit as he should

 

Our first line of Miller-Pete-Boeser is legit

Agreed. He’s arguably been our most impactful forward. He doesn’t get the credit because he isn’t one of the “young guys.”

 

In reality he’s barely older than Horvat, which is good, because it makes it more likely that he can sustain his level of play for us for the next 5 years at least.

Pearson for sure. Miller isn't even close to unsung. I'm constantly hearing and reading from posters that he's our MVP. Pearson's on pace for 60 points this year, yet there's still the notion that Horvat doesn't have any top six wingers to play with.

Yeah MVP gets thrown around a lot with Miller I see.

Tanner Pearson. We’ve legit found a 2nd line winger for Bo and it only cost us Gudbranson. Best bang for the buck.
 

Honorable mention to Brock Boeser who while fighting it a bit from game to game is still putting up solid 1st line numbers.
 

So they would be my choices for unsung difference makers (hero just sounds odd to use on a hockey player to me).

 

We always hear about Pettersson, Miller and Hughes for most games, which isn’t a knock, it’s well deserved attention, but to win consistently the Canucks need more than 3 players putting up points.

as it should. he still gets less credit than he's due; I suspect a lot of fans and media, especially those outside this market, chock up a lot of his scoring this year to riding shotgun with petey and brock. for those watching, though, it's really more like burrows was with the sedins -- he's driving the play, and smart, hard plays he makes are the biggest key to the sustained zone time that line has enjoyed.

Taney, by virtue of the fact that he’s been able to stay healthy for the first half of the season. It honestly has me questioning my sanity.

 

Leivo, Pearson and Edler are contenders as well.

Brandon Sutter for getting hurt and allowing Gaudette to grow into that 3rd line center role. Jokes aside, probably Miller as nobody could see him scoring at a near PPG pace and has allowed that line to flourish. Pearson has been outstanding but doesn’t have the same impact as Miller. IDC what anyone says, and no disrespect to Petey, but #43 has been the MVP and is going to be a top 5 NHL defenceman before long. Kids incredible.

Hard question as most players have recieved high praise all year. 

 

Boeser is playing alot better than many fans would lead to believe.

 

Edler. We're just a different team with him in the lineup.

 

What about travis green. 2 weeks ago he was on the cdc chopping block. That timeout yesterday may have won the game.

 

Also to add. Unsung hero has to be unsung. We talk everyday how great Miller markstrom and Hughes have been for us.

Hughes, Markstrom, Pearson, Miller. When the entire team plays as a whole we win. Canucks are learning to over come adversity. Minus Loui dump and change Eriksson, we are getting better game by game .
