Let's put some depth charts and line combinations together now that the pieces are falling into place. We will also add in any new signings that happen. If you really feel ambitious, you can put the lines together for the Manitoba Moose.
Here's a complete list of all players connected with the organization or headed for the Canucks training camp as of today:
* = rookie
i can't even guess the first line right now... still have no idea if it's going to be Burrows or Samuelsson. And trading Schneider will change everything up, since we'll be acquiring an impact player.
"[He's] a really complete player... There's not really any weaknesses to his game." - Bill Belichick on Andrew Luck
"Vontae Davis looks like Bumgarner of the San Francisco Giants. He's throwing a no hitter out there tonight" - Jon Gruden
kind of easy same linup from last year basically just put kesler in sundins spot then samuelson rw i guess demitra lw raymond wellwood bernier hordichuk, johnson , rypien then edler, mitchell, salo, bieska in the top 4 d spots obrien and rome/nycholat for the 6th d
Dont really know if you can start seting up lines just yet but if things stayed basically the same as last years lines than you would just keep the first line, add Sammy in for Sundin on the second and put Hodgson in for Wellwood on the third (i dont think Wellwood wil be here next year). We probably wont have Pyatt back either and there is more than likely a trade in the works for a pucking moving dman or atleast another 5/6 guy. so based on what we have right now i think it would look like this.
i think f Burrows sticks on the top line that will decide where Sammy and Raymond end up. either could play with the second, Sammy could play on the first and that would probably be better for Hodgson as he could play with Burrows and Bernier.
^ Good lineup. I still think AV will juggle a lot, and Sammy will end up on the first line. We'll see a lot of looks IMO. And we may still pick up another forward now that we semi-know that Sundin isn't coming back.
On a rookie note, I'd like to see Schroeder give his college teammate Patrick White a kick in the ***.
