Hence, forward rich. The defense, on the other hand, lacks top end talent. Therefore, adding another top forward makes less improvement to the team than adding the #1 defense-man.
We have absolutely zero influence over what the Canucks will do, but it is an enjoyable debate all the same.
The Canucks playoff problems have stemmed from a lack of scoring. I don't see how listing a few regular season accomplishments changes that.
We have several defensemen who could be considered number 1s (top 30 in the league), but none of whom I would consider franchise defensemen (top 5-10).
