Salo and Ohlund are fucking done like dinner. Ohlund has been for three seasons now.
Why is it that you want to hitch the wagon to a 21 year old kid still learning the game ? How about let him develop into a good player first ?
Yep...Salo and Ohlund are over the hill.. But have not been replaced .. Garrison? is a maybe..Ballard ?? come on get real..
Agree Kassian is a "work in progress" and may never be the power forward he has been touted as..
So.... we got 2 swedes that are aging and slowing down even more than they showed in the playoffs..plus Burrows..
Don't really think they will be as effective as 2 or 3 years ago..
second line of an injure Kesler.. Booth and Raymond.. Dont see much scoring there..
third and fourth line .. not a big change really but should be ok.
Defence?? After Willie, Bieksa, Edler ( damm he sucked in the playoffs ).. Tanev.. Ballard n Garrison.. maybe ok but not that solid..
So why do you think this years edition of the Canucks are a contender?
