Frogger009 Posted January 30, 2017 Share Posted January 30, 2017 How do people here see the Canucks defense shaking out over the next few years? If this team is to become a contender again, we need a solid D core and right now we have the makings of one, but way too many defensemen. Who are the 6 or 7 we should continue with? in 2 or 3 years, what will this D core look like? Right now we have the following (age in brackets) that have proven or on their way to proving that they belong in the NHL Edler (30) Tanev (27) Gubranson (25) Tryamkin (22) Hutton (23) Stecher (22) Sbisa (27) Juolevi (18) We also have Subban, Pedan and Brisebois in the minors/junior that could pan out. Personally, I think in a couple years our core could be pretty solid like this Tanev Juolevi Hutton Tryamkin Gudbranson Stecher Sbisa? or another to round it out. If our forwards can develop and mature into a solid group with a bonafide first line (hoping Virtanen and Boeser pan out) and with Markstrom/Demko providing solid goal-tending, this team could theoretically be a contender again in a few years. Here's hoping. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
