Interesting Canuck Stats

The Canucks are, in fantasy, in big trouble.

Bertuzzi still has the Steve Moore incident in his head and is having an average season. He did pass 500 career points this year though. He has 53 pts in 59 games.

Brendan Morrison is also having issues this season. He hasn’t really been a presence on the first line at all. He has 42 points in 59 games.

Naslund is having a brilliant year. He leads the team in goals (26) and points (60) in 58 games though he does have a -8 plus/minus and 50 penalty minutes. He’s also 18th in the NHL point scoring race. In fact, Naslund has been carrying the first line instead of being supported by Bertuzzi and Morrison. Naslund has scored about 40% of the first line’s 155 points. Bertuzzi has 33%, and Morrison 27%.

As for the Sedins+Carter line, they have basically been the first line. Combined this line has 146 points. Henrik has 39% of this total, Daniel has 35%, and Carter has 26%. The Sedins have combined for 108 points this season.

The Sedins (excluding Carter) have combined for 20% of the team’s combined 535 points and the top line has collected 29% of that total. The whole second line including Carter has 27%.

The Sedin Line has done their 146 points with ice time totaling numbers like 925-975 minutes a member. The top line has accomplished thier 155 points with ice time between 1050 and 1200 minutes.

The point of these numbers is that if the Sedin Line and the Top Line would swap, not only would the Sedin Line improve their numbers, but I would bet that their numbers would be higher than the Naslund-Bertuzzi-Morrison line by the end of the season.

Another possibility is to set up a Naslund-Henrik-Daniel first line, and a Bertuzzi-Morrison-Carter second line.

Thank you for your time. Hopefully this proves the the Sedins pretty much have matured to the point that they are at last the first line that they deserve to be.

    You dodn’t touch on the fact that the Canucks are also in defensive trouble with Ohlund and Jovonaski

    out. This is their current defense:

    thats what i said to about nazzy and the sedins first line, but it wouldnt work, because carter is a perfect fit, and nazzy is a way different style of player

    salo got hurt aswell.

  6. FLAMESOWNU says:

    salo got hurt in olympics and i think Baumgartner was out pre-olympics, not sure on his status now

    Here’s another interesting Canucks fact, and probably my favorite one……..

    ***The Canucks have lost all five meetings with my Edmonton Oilers this season….NUFF SAID***

    GO OILERS GO!!!!

    What a stupid suggestion: let’s break up the Sedins!!!

    How about we trade Bertuzzi + some pucks and some sticks to Boston for Glen Murray and Andrew Raycroft.

  10. dave1979 says:

    janetty, you are SUCH a putz! hahahahaha edmonton sucks….out of the 6 people i have known personally that has lived there, all 6 could not wait to move to or move back to BC!!!

  11. paul_dc10 says:


  12. dave1979 says:

    Janetty is just a know nothing moron. he has proved it time and time again on this site.

  13. JannettyTheRocker says:

    Okay Dave……you’re cool…….all you say is Oiler’s suck and people want to move from Edmonton to BC. You’re so smart!!!! What great hockey insight you have!!! What did I say that was incorrect??? Isn’t it true that the Oilers are 5-0 against the Canucks this year? Isn’t that considered a stat, and for the Canucks a stat that is five straight losses………………Oh yeah, but I’m a no-nothing moron because I state a TRUE fact.

    What does wanting to move to BC have to do with hockey? Oh, that’s right, nothing.

    Why don’t you try and post something hockey related, rather than being a no-nothing moron yourself. Asshole.

  14. JannettyTheRocker says:

    Yeah, you guys are soooooo much farther ahead in the standings then the Oilers. Way to go. We’ll see how far you guys get without Cloutier, Ohlund, Jovanoski, and Salo now that they’re all injured. Even with them, it’s not like your team was playing all that great lately……….Watch the Canucks fall out of playoff contention now that the Olympic break is over.

  15. dave1979 says:

    kind of ironic that you spelled KNOW nothing…”no-nothing” hahahahahahahahha

  16. JannettyTheRocker says:

    Hahaha, you’re such a pathetic loser. The best come-back you had was pointing out a spelling error on my part. Way to go loser.

  17. dave1979 says:

    AHAHAHAHAHAH i hope get Dallas in the first round again… IF you even make the playoffs…..

  18. JannettyTheRocker says:

    I hope we get Dallas in the first round too, so we can kick their asses once and for all………

    I hope we get the Nucks in the second round, so we can win another four straight games…….


  19. dave1979 says:

    didnt you guys not make the playoffs in the last season and the season before that, you had to beat us to even get into the post season and couldnt do it??? HAHAHAHA grab a spoon!

  20. JannettyTheRocker says:

    We missed the playoffs last season, but we were there the year before. Gets your facts straight……..And, that was last season. We’re now on to the 2005-2006 (incase you didn’t realize that), and we’re flying high. We’re gonna make the playoffs………I just hope we get the Nucks in a 7-game series, so we can sweep, sweep, sweep you guys out of the playoffs (if you even make it).

  21. dave1979 says:

    IF WE make it? hahah you guys couldnt even BUY yourselves a team…thats right, we stuck with our core and you chumps BOUGHT a team and are still 3 points behind us

  22. JannettyTheRocker says:

    We bought a team???? HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!! After losing all of our stars to other teams due to financial reasons, we finally get a chance to add some key components. So we add Chris Pronger and Mike Peca…….then we add Dick Tarnstrom and Jaroslav Spacek. Yeah, we’re sure buying a team. The core of our team has been here for a few years now, and yeah, we’re spending some money to improve our team. That’s how the business is ran…………………….Are you really that proud of a 3 point lead???? You guys still have to face the Oilers three straight times in March. That’s three straight losses, and 6 lost points. So really, it’s not going to be too long until we’re ahead of the Nucks again.

    The Nucks have big holes on defense now, with all of the injuries, goaltending is weak. And your offense hasn’t been anything special all year long. It’s only a matter of time before your team falls out of the playoffs, and starts selling off it’s players. I feel bad for you guys…………..HAHA, not really.

  23. dave1979 says:

    well despite the fact that youre an asswad, i do agree that our goaltending is weak ( i like auld but right now all he is in my opinion is a very good solid backup goalie) and we are screwed for D right now, but the trade freeze is over soon. and we do face the oilers 3 more times, but you are seriously kidding yourself if you think those games are a guaranteed easy six points. try not to be so biased.

  24. JannettyTheRocker says:

    Let’s see……

    The Oiler’s offense and defense are great, no problems there. We have three great backup goalies, but that’ll be taken care of pretty soon………..Cujo??? Possibly. That’s the rumor.

    The Canuck’s offense is mediocre, their defense is injury ridden and weak, and the goaltending, you have one good backup goaltender.

    Oilers 5 Canucks 0……

    Yeah, I think the Oiler’s have a much better chance at winning those three games than the Nucks do……

    It’s hard not to be biased when you’re an Oiler’s fan…..


  25. FLAMESOWNU says:

    lol, I see Janetty’s back. And thats kinda funny…interesting fact..flames should also be unbeaten if it wasnt for the refs that one game and everyone knows it

  26. BigCanuck says:

    Hey Flames, I agree, if the refs let stuff go like they always do in the playoffs, you guys are a shoe in for the finals again. However, If they call it by the correct new rules, which I doubt, a faster team, like many of the ones in the running, have a chance at beating the Flames. Quit dwelling on the game the Canucks won. There were a few close ones at the beginning of the year, (I believe all were 1 goal games), be happy you have 4 out of 6.

    The only thing I am happy about is the Canucks will be the underdog this year.

  27. Maximus says:

    I still think that Bertuzzi to Pittsburgh for Gonchar. Pittsburgh could use a big strong power forward to play with Crosby. Vancouver is in need of a healthy defenseman. Both players are paid about the same. Both are near the top skilled players at their positions, but both are struggling to recapture past greatness. Bertuzzi needs a new start. Gonchar is starting to come around, but he is taking the blame for Pittsburgh horrible season.

  28. steviewonder says:

    Breaking up the Sedins and Carter is one of the stupidest things I’ve seen on any of these trade sites. So the idea is to wait until they start producing and then change things.

  29. steviewonder says:

    The Canucks offense is mediocre and the Oiler’s offense is great? Hmmmmm, very interesting. The Canucks have scored 10 more goals than the Oilers so I would love for you to explain your version of the Oilers great offense. I can’t argue with your comments about the Canucks defense and goaltending at the moment, but your comment on the offenses is somewhat confusing to say the least. The Canucks top line is also having an off year and yet the Canucks have still scored more goals!

  30. JannettyTheRocker says:

    Would have, should have, could have…….The Nucks have beat the Flames. A loss is a loss…………..But back to the Canucks. They’ve even been dominated by the Flames. Better stay out of Alberta, hey Nuck’lheads.

  31. paul_dc10 says:

    CANUCKS BEAT THE FLAMES, and what was that above on how the canucks have a mideiocore offense and the oilers offense is great, pretty muchur hole offense is torres, smyth pronger, and MAYBE horcoff, comepared to wat the canucks have thats nothing, and if jannetyy would like my to name the players i wont mind

  32. paul_dc10 says:

    gonchar for bert, NO CHANCE

  33. paul_dc10 says:


  34. steviewonder says:

    Doig hasn’t played for a while either.

  35. BigCanuck says:

    Yeah Jannetty, we have a losing record against Alberta, but to say dominated? I don’t know. I will say come playoffs the Canucks would be better suited to play the Oil. Unless of course you get Luongo!

    your kinda forgeting there top point getter..
