With the start of the season just around the corner and with the usual front runners (Jake "The Ripper" and "Lucky" Loui kickled off the team - amongst other obvious choices), who do you believe will become The Most Popular "Whipping-Boy" on the canucks this coming 21-22 season (including Greener and Uncle Jim)?

Petan is already my whipping boy so if he makes the team then ya, it is him.

Far too often I have seen give aways, or he shies away from hits which allows for sustained pressure in the defensive zone or he glides instead of attacking the net on break ins and on it goes. He has 4 points but take that with a grain of salt given the premium icetime he has received over other players who will be getting it durng the regular season.

 

But he is coach Greens guy so there is that. I also say this because this team is too light and soft so maybe some size bias but not much. I would be happier with Gadjo back though.

Pearson, OEL (if he doesn’t live up to expectations), Myers, Halak. 
 

Hughes will get overlook based on his offense, but if he doesn’t improve on his defense. I could see a lot of people turning on him (if not already)

Plays scared, gave away a costly turnover that allowed a 2 minute shift in our zone. Perimeter all day. 

We need our bottom 6 to drive for the greasy ones.

I'm blaming everything on you @RU SERIOUS...  you'll just have to take one for the team.

Hopefully no one.  We’re gonna be too good to have a whipping boy this year.  Our possession numbers are good, the wins will come.
