I do not think Kassian and Schroeder make the team. I am imagining this is the opening night roster but I expect it to change throughout the season. Gillis may view this as a mulligan for last season's playoffs?

Now that the situation is known, I don't think the Canucks are badly positioned at all. The old and beaten up players have had ample rest and recuperation time. Young guys have had time to address game faults. Best, for me, is that a shortened season won't have as much of a step up to post season play. The Canucks won't arrive in this season's playoffs worn out. It is amply clear to everyone that change must come. The players know this, too. The coaches might mention it.
