Their defense youth: Bieksa, Edler, Bourdon, McIver, Ellington and Sharrow looks like the basis for a pretty good D for years to come.
They have one of the top goaltending prospects around in Cory Schneider.
Their forward prospect depth is weaker but Raymond, Hansen, Grabner, Labrie, Gendur and White all look like they will contribute in this league, along with the grinders like Brown and Rypien. Kesler is only 23. Hell, the Sedins are only 27 and Luongo is just 28, so the Canucks' key players are not exactly aged.
I was a lot more concerned with the Canucks lack of prospect depth 2 years ago than I am right now.
