Lineups Canucks Moose

Currrently the Nucks’ are trying to make a move but if they dont I speculate they are going to be saving up for Dany Heatley next summer, but not have as long of a playoff run. Linden hasn’t signed with the team yet but will soon…. My Canucks & Moose Roster as of July 17, 2007 6:25AM PST.

    2 good clubs. The Moose-Marlie games should be interesting.

  2. Mr_Canuck says:

    Good Post bro,

    The trade is inevitable – more than Bourdon, Edler has gotta be on the big club this year so we gotta move something.

    I also have a feeling they're gonna test isbister with Brendan and naslund and hope he can play physical for the first time in his career and open up some room, otherwise he'll back down to the 3/4 th lines

    I doubt Heater will be a target. Nonis has already said he wants to balance his team, thus having 4 defensemen who basically make the same money and will be looking to get a bunch of 2-5 million dollar forwards instead of the big money guy, and Heater apparently is looking for 10 million as an UFA next year ( at least that's what garrioch says, but we all know how dependable that clown is).

    BUT, if pyatt and carter are getting 20-30 goals with the sedins, could you imagine the number for dany?

  3. the_word says:

    How did Vancouver win their division with a lineup full of jobbers?  Ok, you have the best goaltender in the league, but that alone can't far in the playoffs.  The Canucks greatly overachieved last season.  I feel sorry for Canucks fans who have to watch 82 games of such boring hockey.

  4. woohoo19 says:

    They may not have scored alot but you wouldn't believe how many chances they had. They weren't as fun as the old run and gun style Canucks but they were more successful. Also Nonis has already implied that he was working from the net out so all us Canucks fans should see some change this offseason if not who knows. Naslund and Morrison are both on contract years as well as cooke and Pyatt could be getting better and how are the Sedins jobbers and our defence is probably one of the best in the league.

  5. woohoo19 says:

    I think that some of our young Moose will most certainly get called up.

  6. the_word says:

    Ok, you have the twins, but their not superstars, their on verge of becoming superstars and Naslund, still good but not superstar.  Morrison is still in the NHL, wow.  Your defense is not the best in the NHL, its a bunch of decent but not great defensemen.  Mitchel is awesome but still not a superstar defenseman and Ohlund is definitely the best NHL defenseman with one eye.

    Who are Cooke and Pyatt anyway (and Isbister and Cowan or Bexman and ummmm, does Salo still play for you guys I forget.  No wonder Vancouver almost sent Rory to represent them at the allstar game)?

  7. MR40 says:

    you know nothing about hockey. Maybe watch a Canucks game.

  8. MR40 says:

    exactly my thoughts.

  9. the_word says:

    Well, I wasn't masochistic enough to sit through the fifteenth overtime of a Canucks' playoff game, so why don't you enlighten me.

    The Canucks are a Minnesota Wild clone, even when the Wild go on a good run or win a playoff series no one takes them seriously. Though everyone hates playing (or watching) the Canucks and the Wild because they can beat anyone. But ultimately they always fall short. I mean for the Canucks to win a playoff series they have to score (Burrows, wow I just remembered another one of your players! If anything thats evidence that I watch far too much hockey) at least four goals. Four goals in seven games? I don't see the Canucks doing that consistently.

    Saying the Canucks have the best defensemen in the league is laughable.  A good defensemen core needs at least one puck rushing defense and a couple of guys who can spark the PP. 

  10. habsrock99 says:

    I like posts like this, it gives other fans the in depth look at other teams farm hands. Now, take it, Cory Schneider will be dealt by the end of this season. He already said that he didn't sign to just sit back and play AHL hockey, he wants to play in the NHL and good luck cracking Luongo's pads. I'm thinking he'll eithr go to San Jose or another weak goaltending team like Detroit (ya they have Hasek but the guy is going to be 43, he can't have much left in the tank). Dany Heatley, I hope to god he goes to the West because that means one less murderer in the Eastern Conference (I hate Heatley as you might tell, he should be in jail, not playing hockey). If he goes west, that drastically hurts the Sens and makes the Habs just that much better in the North East.

  11. canucklehead_101 says:

    But Who is gonna replace nazzy other than the Sedin's…Sign Heater 7 years for anything under 70Million or Marleau for 5 yrs those are the only 2 guys + their canadian.

  12. canucklehead_101 says:

    Daniel Sedin: 83 PTS, 81 GP
    Henrik Sedin: 79 PTS, 82 GP
    Markus Naslund: 60 PTS, 82 GP (While being injured the whole year)
    Brendan Morrison: 51 PTS, 82 GP (Again, While being injured the whole year)
    Matt Cooke: 30 PTS, 82 GP(Playing on the third line of a defensive minded team)

    A team that plays a trappy style  BETTER THAN YOUR PRESCIOUS WILD has over 100 Points and you barely make the playoffs, and you're wimpering about how we suck, you're just jealous because we have the best goaltender in the world who just doesn't get enough credit, B.S..

    Sedin-Sedin-Pyatt

  13. Luongoman says:

    Who are Cooke and Pyatt? PEOPLE WHO OWNED YOUR CRAPPY TEAM.

  14. prayin-for-the-wce says:

    A goalie is important yes, but he isn't everything.  Tell me how far Luongo took the Panthers in the last 5-6 years?  It's not like this was his break out year.  He was nominated for the Vezina before when he had a better save percentage and like an extra 600 shots more than the 2nd highest tallying goaltender and they still didn't make the playoffs.  I'll be the first to tell you that the Canucks aren't Stanleycup contenders, but they aren't the horrible team you perceive them to be.  The reason we have one of the best defensive cores is because our top 5 are all very respectable above average defenceman.  The balance achieved by them rivals the best defensive Nhl teams.  Sure we don't have a Pronger, Niedermyer or Lidstrom, but the defensive lapses felt when said superstar isn't on the ice isn't felt as hard as other teams.  We are a team built from the net out, which is shown in our stats.  The Canucks took a while to gel, but when we did they were on fire.  A streak is 10-15 games.  The Canucks had the best record since Christmas over a span of over 40 games.  Our team has no real superstars, but what we do thrive on is team work and defensive play.  Nazzy has really slowed down offensively over the last few years, but his overall team play and defensive style has improved dramatically.  He has become a lot more defensively sound and it is show through his +/-.  I think that not this coming year, but the next season, the Canucks will have a shot at being cup contenders as they will have a lot of salary freed up after nazzy's and Mo's contracts are done and really make a push for a sniper ala Heatly.  But for now, I think we will make the playoffs but probably not get passed the 2nd round.

  15. lukeleim says:

    I think Shannon will make the team.

  16. wingsfan13 says:

    if vancouver had two more top six forwards and not goofs pyatt and cooke on the scoring lines the nucks would be a guaranteed cup contender

  17. canucklehead_101 says:

    He will (As a spare)

  18. wingsfan13 says:

    since the canucks got a new system and coach i don't like watching them on cbc anymore.  they may be winning more but they are boring and not entertaining to watch anymore.  i can't sit and watch trap crap like the nucks, wild, and njds  because there are first no fights and second no scoring. if i wanted to watch a 1-0 game all the time i'd watch baseball and take a nap.

  19. canucklehead_101 says:

    WE CURRENTLY GAVE THE BEST DEFENCE IN THE LEAGUE

  20. MR40 says:

    The Canucks do have lot's of fights actually. We have Cowen, Burrows, and Bieksa who all drops the gloves atleast 6 or 7 times a season. Now we have Isbister too, and Cooke's hitting is just as entartaining as fighting.

  21. MR40 says:

    We don't have one of the best offensives in the NHL, but it is better this year. I guerentee Morrison, and Naslund each get 15 points more, ATLEAST. Maybe even 20. Naslund can still put up 80 points. By the end of this season the Seduins will be superstars, put up 90-100 points per season, and be the biggest bargains in the NHL. Since one player every year doesn't turn out as planned we'll assume Pyatt gets 10less points, but add Kesler, and Cooke's point increase's, which we can almost definatly expect then it doesn't matter. Isbister could become half the player he was in Edmonton which would be pretty good. No matter what we'll get more goals. Even if some of those things don't go as planned we'll still have more goals. We aren't a scoring team, but no we have chemistry, and it's a new start, which in this case is good for players like Mo, and Nazzy.

    Like Buffalo (also one of the best defense's in the NHL) we have balance. Whats better having Pronger, Neidermayer, and Beauchimum on the ice playing good for 30 minutes, and having 3 guys be liabilties for 8 minutes each, or having 6 defensemen who can all put up points or have awesome defensive skills, and never are bad to have on the ice. We don't have the best defensemen in the NHL, but to say were not top 6 or 7 is laughable.

    I'm sorry if i sound like a jerk, but you really have to look at more then stats.

  22. MR40 says:

    First of all I think he's a Leaf fan and if not, he's not a Wild fan.

    Second, thats not a bad team. The Wild could be a very scary team, and if Gaborik lights it up, they could win the entire conference.

  23. MR40 says:

    I think even one, and there contenders. They need a 3rd liner who can score, and a real top 6 forward. Maybe send Mattias Ohlund to Nashville for Steve Sullivan. Ohlund is a good solid d man, and Nashville is pretty thin on defense now. They have some good prospects, but no experienced guys who are top 4 d man except for Zidlicky. Sullivan would work well with BMO, and Nazzy. Plus Sullivan isn't that expensive, neither is Ohlund. You have about a millino left and could sign another loser to play with the twins, even Anson Carter. Then you have two superstars, and what now looks like a top 6 forward, and line of decent 1st liners, or good 2nd liners, and a very good 3rd line with Pyatt, Cooke,. and Kesler. You don't even really need to get Carter, but it would give the forward lines more balance, and better depth. The Canucks defense would still be above average without Ohlund, and with players like Edler, Bourdon, coming and there's players who your trying to get on the roster like Koltsov you hhave room, and with Luongo back there it's ok not having Ohlund.

  24. prayin-for-the-wce says:

    I can sympathize with you Wingsfan13.  The run and gun, hard hitting style of the wce was exciting to watch during that time.  It started to get weak after they introduced that new rule to cripple Bertuzzi's dominating style or start cracking down on his rough style, whatever you may call it.  The Canucks were letting in a lot of goals at that time, but they were also averaging 5 goals a game which was pretty significant.  I still keep wondering, if we had Luongo at that time we would have won the cup for sure.  Such a powerhouse team, reminds me of the sens when heatley just joined.  The new system is a more defensive stance, and are goals against has dropped dramatically.  Canuck games may not be as exciting as they once were, but they are winning a lot more games.  As for excitement, watching luongo make spectacular saves time and time again will have to do it for us for the time being.  Watch out for us in 2008-2009 when we have a lot more money to make a run at some high profile free agents and times will be good then. 

  25. the_word says:

    Well, saying Morrison and Naslund get 15 points more each is pretty much mean nothing, it'd be like be saying Mark Bell is gonna score 30 goals this year (Mark Bell would be a top six forward in Vancouver, that's why Vancouver isn't a contender). And now the Twins are getting 100 points a piece too? Isbister is a quality player? Dude come back down to reality, these claims are wishful thinking. You can't expect 4 players to each get 15 points better in the same year and tell me 'you know nothing about hockey'.

    Vancouver is nothing like Buffalo, they're polar opposites. One is an up tempo, young and dynamic team with good goaltending. The other is a one dimensional team with perhaps the worst collection of forwards in the NHL, a blueline filled with 3rd/4th defenseman and great goaltending. I let you
    figure out which is which.

    Yes Pronger, Neidermayer and Beauchimum are better, see the 2007 cup champions. Vancouver has a solid but mediocre blueline. I'd put them at the bottom of the top ten in the league. I'm not basing this on stats, but by looking overall what they're capable of. They all pretty much play the same role, responsible defense, nothing fancy and sound position (yawn) play. Does take a lot of talent to be a sound positional player.  Each as a marginally unique skill set (ie Salo and Bxmen have a little offensive upside, but nothing that warrants much praise).

    Don't worry about being a jerk, speak your mind.

  26. the_word says:

    ( I hate the Wild, there a cancer in the NHL, a team that can't do anything other than pull off an upset in the playoffs every other year and disappoint a team that actually has some potential.

    Ok, both lineups are unimpressive. But good for you, you can name the entire lineup of the Canucks, that takes dedication. Applauds) Pack yourselves on the back homers. As if you still have Linden, he was awesome when he played with Neeley back in the day.

    So maybe the Canucks resemble the Wild of 3 years ago more than today's Wild. You must keep in mind that today's Wild resemble the Wild of three years ago. So… C (canucks), M (wild three years ago) and W (wild today)

    C is M
    M is W
    .
    . .
    C is W

    But you have better goaltending. So if Vancouver is a defense first playoff team, you have to figure out which team do the Canucks resemble. Nonis has patterned his team using a quite uncreative model of building from the net out. His inspiration being the success of the NJ Devils and the Wild. Now which team does your Canucks resemble? The Devils or the Wild. I think you can guess which I'd pick.

  27. the_word says:

    Totally agree, the Canucks used to be a team you'd root for even if they weren't your team because they played dynamic and exciting hockey.  Nonis has turned them into everything that wrong with hockey.  A passionless systematic team that excels at be mediocre.

  28. canucklehead_101 says:

    Mediocre!!! I bet your hockey sense is around 0, you dont understand why I bashed you earlier!!!

  29. canucklehead_101 says:
    The Canucks better resemble the Devils, because Gaborik (their top player) is always hurt…he's one of the Juan Gonzalez's of hockey, he wouldn't play if he had hangnail.   Demitra is an awesome player, who needs to work on many aspects of his game, Koivu WILL be a future star, but for the time being…is overpaid.   Rolston is good not great, I do wish the canucks had him but Nonis obviously has enough CRYSTAL BALLZ to see that he messed up on him and Scott Niedermayer 2 years ago. Bouchard is one of my favorite players but is a show-off sometimes, and Backstrom is a Softmore but is a promising goaltender who reminds me of Tommy Salo or Henrik Lundqvist. Luongo is 2x better though. The only person who may be better is Brodeur and if the NHL didn't have the Lockout…The Canucks would still be that explosive team today.   Along with Alex Auld and Dan Cloutier, instead of Roberto Luongo & Curtis Sanford, with a trappy style…Who'd you rather see?
  30. the_word says:

    Another homer who substitutes exclamation points for hockey sense while criticizing mine.  Cute, Canucks fans stop listening to John Garrick, your team isn't all that good.  The Canucks have great goaltending.  Thats it, you're a playoff team, not a contender and you're boring to watch. 

  31. the_word says:

    Another NHL cancer.  Didn't I ask in an earlier post for Canucks fans to come back down to reality.  Do you honestly think the Canucks are of the Devils ilk.  Win a few stanley Cups and you can make that claim, hell make the conference finals.  But one playoff series and a division title in an extremely tight division and your a contender, huh. 

    The Devils were champs not just because of Brodeur (who was their backbone), but on superstar defensemen, Stevens, Niedlemayer and Rafalski, not quality filler like Mitchel (see the Wild three years ago, remember C is M), Salo and Beexia. 

  32. hero11 says:

    "you're boring to watch"

    ??????

    Hockey is a business all about winning.

    If Van is so boring to watch, why do you watch them?

    maybe you need to see a bear riding a tricycle, or watch 30 clowns get out of a mini. that would probably entertain you.

    You complain that people criticize you, yet thats all I see from you.

    Hockey sense. You don't have a superior hockey sense, you only have your opinion.

    Get off your high horse man.

  33. prayin-for-the-wce says:

    He doesn't watch them anymore.  In all honesty, the system the Canucks play allows them to win more games, but you can't deny its a lot more boring to watch.  The wce line in its prime vs the sedins cycle, Nuff said.  Im a die hard Canuck fan, and I will always support my team, but the product that is being put out rite now is not as exciting as during the WCE era. I'm sure most Canuck fans would agree with me on this fact.  That said, I will continue to watch all Canuck games because they are my team.  At least Luongo puts up more entertainment value with his great saves.  I don't think we have a chance to be a contender for the cup untill 2008-9 when we get a little more money to work with and can throw the cap max at a heatly or at least make a decent pitch at a real goal scorer to play with the Sedins.

  34. MR40 says:

    I meant Buffalo's defense is the same as Vancouver's, Not the entire team.

    So if our defense is top 10 worst in the NHL i'll find 10 with worse defense.

    We pretty much have the same defense has Colorado, except we have better depth. Winner Vancouver.

    We have a way better deense then Edmonton.

    Ours is better then Columbus, Chigaco's, and St Louis's defense.

    Currently our defense is better then Nashville's (most of there defensemen will get better though).

    Our defense is better then Minnasota's. They have Johnsson, and no depth.

    Our defense is better then San Jose's now weak defense.

    Our defense is better then Phoenix, and L.A.'s defense (L.A, and Vancouver are very close, but Vancouver wins)

    That's 10 team just in the West who don't have as good of defens eas us. That means were top 5 in the West, and because the East has weaker defense, and has more of an up tempo style, probably at the most 4 teams from the East have better defense then Vancouver.

    We have better defense then Pittsburgh, Boston, Washington, Ottawa (close), New York (both), New Jersey, Montreal (close), Toronto (very close, but Vancouver wins, because Toronto has too man offensive, and non defensive players like McCabe and Kubina isn't great on defense), Atlanta, Tampa, Florida, Carolina, Philly, and Buffalo.

    So Vancouver has a better defense then every team in the East and four in the West teams in the West have better defense.

    Criticize me all you want, but back it up. A homer is someone who overestimates the potential and accomplishments of their club and makes hollow personal attacks such as 'you obviously know nothing about hockey'…. in the place of supporting their position.   And you sir are a homer. I'm not on a high horse, how about we get back to talking about the Canucks (although in my experience of homers, I expect your next post will be a over dramatic attack at my character rather than talking about the Canucks).

  37. hero11 says:

    LOL,….

    ….what a hypocrite.

  38. the_word says:

    IMO, your defense is not better than Detroit, Anaheim (definitely not better than the ducks, that's why you lost to them in the playoffs, you have better goaltending but not better defense), Calgary (much better blueline), Nashville is debatable and not surprising you didn't mention Dallas. Its hardly a given that the Canucks have a better blueline than any of these teams (and even if your blueline is better than teams like Nashville it is only marginally so). You can list all the non playoff team and with the expect of the Avs, all their bluelines are garbage.

    As for the East, Toronto has a more skilled blueline with more upside than Vancouver but I agree too many defensive liabilities, I'd take the Leafs blueline because they have better potential (great on the PP, produce a lot of offense) but I understand that others wouldn't agree with me, your defense in no better than Buffalo, definitely not Ottawa or Jersey.

    So your defense ranks as solid along with a lot of other teams in around the league. Vancouver blueline ranks in the top third of the league, but is among the Leagues elite.

  39. the_word says:

    Great post, at least when I say something I back it up.  I've ripped the Leafs a lot, hardly a homer.

  40. canucklehead_101 says:

    I like how you spell Beexia (which canucks player is that?) Bieksa, oh ya top notch prospect who will be the captian once Nazzy leaves, the reason the canucks won the division is cuz we kick Toronto's A**, is that the reason you're trying to diss me? we have a way better team we made the playoffs…

  41. the_word says:

    The reason can't spell Baxel's name is because he's a nobody, only a Canucks fan would know about him. He's invisible outside of your market. Thats why when he signed for 3 million +, the reaction was along the lines of 'who is guy'.

    You won the division because you beat Toronto once? If it takes two points to win a division, that simply emphasizes my point that Northwest is so tight that no one should put too much stock in a division title.

    I'm not dissing you, I'm simply reminding you that the Canucks are merely a playoff team, not a contender.

    You have the second best goaltending in the league,  A good, but on great blueline and perhaps the worst collection of forwards in the league.

    I think my take on the Canucks has been quite fair.
