Best Canuck Team - just for fun

Recommended Posts

Taking all Canuck players in their best years when they were here, and making considerations for forward placements, make your best team.  Here is mine:

 

Naslund Sundin Bure

Sedin Sedin Mogilny

Courtnall Linden Bertuzzi

Gelinas Kesler Samuelsson

 

Jovanoski Salo

Hedican Hamhuis

Lumme Edler

 

McLean

Markstrom

 

(I really can't comment on players before 1989)

that's a "real good" line up!   I think Baumgartner is one of the few top-10 picks (10th overall) to play so few games...can you say, BUST?

Looks more likely to be a police line up than an all star line up.

My list:

 

Sedin-Sedin-Bure 

Naslund-Morisson-Bertuzzi 

Ronning-Linden-Smyl

Courtnall-Kesler-Mogilny

Burrows, Gelinas

 

Jovanovski-Ehrhoff

Lumme-Salo

Ohlund- Reinhart

Edler, Hamhuis, Bieksa, 

 

EDIT: How the frack did I forget Ohlund? Jeez look at me go. 

 

Schneider

Luongo

 

I'm going by players who were good in Canuck uniforms, not players who were good in their own right, but not on Vancouver. *Cough Messier and Sundin cough*

Replaced Samuelsson with Demitra

Hedican with Ohlund

Marky with Luongo because we all know how much he loved being a backup.

How about a little love for D man     -  Dennis Kearns...

 

In the summer of 1971, Chicago - then being deep on defence, behind perennial All-Stars Pat Stapleton and Bill White - exposed Kearns in the Intra-League Draft, and he was claimed by Vancouver, for whom he made his NHL debut that fall. Kearns would play his next ten years in Vancouver, his entire NHL career, becoming a star playmaker with noteworthy skill on offense and the power play despite his small size for a defenceman. His best years were between 1976 and 1978, when having recovered from injuries the previous two years he averaged nearly fifty assists a season, was named to the Canadian national team at the World Championships twice, and was called by The Hockey News the "Denis Potvin of the West."[1] Unfortunately, his feats on the ice never translated to success in the playoffs; during his career Kearns played in only eleven playoff games, and the Canucks won only three playoff matches in his tenure

Actually, that line-up looks really kick ass.

 

Do you think they'd all get along?  Like, they'd actually compliment each others playing styles?

In their prime, is SSB better than NMB?   That's a tough call.

Kurt Fraser and Thomas Gradin with Stan Smyl were a dominant line for several seasons.  I think Fraser and Smyl would have pounded the crap out of the Twins.  Linden, Bure, and Larionov would be one hell of a line too.  We have had some fabulous lines, just not enough together at one time.
