I thought you guys wanted a sniper/scorer?
Yup. Exactly. The Canucks already have a pass 1st center in Henrik Sedin. Who btw finished 4th among centers in assists last year, and 14th among centers in points. Henrik's also very responsible defensively. He has the ability to score goals as his 18 goal season showed, but he's to reluctant to shoot. What the Canucks need is a big center who isn't afraid to shoot and can score goals.
The Sedins are very good players who consistently put up a point a game. Not together, each of them. Both are responsible defensively. And yes they can play apart as the last 10 games of last year showed. When they were split up Daniel had 9 points in those 10 games while Henrik had 10 points in the same 10 games. Are they soft? Yes. So are a lot of forwards in the league.
That's why the Canucks need another scoring line to take the focus off of the Sedins.
Not a Gomez
. They need a big guy that can score goals to compliment Demitra and likely Raymond.
