Well first of all the Canucks have not had a solid number 1 goalie in a long time. Lets face it, Cloutier is not going to win you a stanley cup.They tried to adress the goalie issue with Noronen, but that didnt cut it.
The whole Crawford/Bertuzzi issue was always there and their best players never played like they can. Naslund, Morrison, Bertuzzi.
So I think it was a combination of things that let to the failure this season.
Well see that's where I see different. We were no. 1/ no. 2 for a long time with Auld and even though Cloutier had an injury we were still looking strong. Auld is a strong keeper. Our defense was strong. Our confidence just went down the drain after the playoff run because I think teams started playing harder and we didn't step it up.. I believe the injuries that occured had something to do with that..
This guy at The Globe and Mail has been reporting some interesting rumours about the Canucks, anyone care to discuss?
Here's his Twitter page: http://twitter.com/#!/Vanstrom_BC
Now to the rumours..
1. Cory Schneider - Multiple Rumours:
To New Jersey with a 1st round pick for Zach Parise
For the last two years, Henrik Sedin has been real close to the Art Ross, even winning it one time. Indefinably, i think he will clear at least 100 pts. Phil Kessel is in it as well, which surprises me.
