It hasn't been mentioned much but Lukas Krajicek's shoulder was absolutely destroyed last year by Keith Tkachuk. After hearing Krajicek talk about the severity of the injury it likely will be a concern moving forward. O'Brien has proven to be a very durable player and this bodes well for a Canuck blueline that struggles to stay healthy.

I'm a little bit surprised hearing some of the comments regarding Krajicek's offensive potential. This is a guy that produces less even strength points than Willie Mitchell. Krajicek has terrible offensive instincts. Don't let the skillset fool you, this guy will never be a 40 point defenseman at the NHL level. Bret Hedican is a great comparison IMO.
