They picked up JVR in the draft, had a great pick in Claude Giroux waiting in the wings and made some very shrewd signings (Hartnell, Timonen and Briere) that completely turned them back into contenders.
Except I don't see anyone waiting in the wings that has top line talent, nor does this team ever go out and make interesting top line signings either. I think Messier was the last time we signed a forward who played on our top line...

The Canucks will continue to suck until the day Benning, Weisbrod, Linden, and Desjardins are all fired.
