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 would be significantly better with a top 6 forward rather than a top 4 defenseman. Trophies aside, the Canucks most glaring weakness is a suitable top 6 forward to play with Kesler and Booth. this player would improve the team more than any other position.
