I hope he bounces back to his 2010 form, and if he does, he'd be in my top-9. Plus, I don't think he has the attitude necessary for a 13th forward role; he's always seemed like a bit of a diva to me (but perhaps baldness = maturity).
What's wrong with Luongo starting? He won the gold as the starter in 2010...I think much will be determined by how the goalies are playing that season, but as it stands Luongo should be the incumbent starter, Price the backup, and either Holtby or Fleury as number 3.
WRT Getzlaf, I agree with your assessment; however, I have him included in the event we need more offense. I remember back in 2006 we barely had any offense and ended up eliminated because of it. I don't want that to happen again.
The Canucks will continue to suck until the day Benning, Weisbrod, Linden, and Desjardins are all fired.
