What happened to Sturm? Doesn't make the cut? I'd think even if Schroeder does well, he'd be used as an injury call-up and Kesler would remain at center. It all depends on how good "tearing it up" is. If Schroeder's on pace for a 55 point season over 20 games, I guess you find space for him.

So you are bashing Henrik for continuing to play when he feels something is not 100%, while what he is doing is that he is resting to not allow to it develop any further?

This is really setting up to be a letdown year after the playoff run. If Henrik requires surgery, and Kesler is out for the first two months we should almost just go for a top 5 pick. It's gonna be Daniel Sedin and a bunch of second/third liners running around.

I think a player owes the team a bit of a responsibility seeing as they pay them quite handsomely.
Is it REALLY unreasonable to allow players to play hockey during the offseason? It seems to me it would be a great way to, I don't know, stay in shape over the summer. Would you prefer the Canucks to spend the offseason tied to a chair? Much more difficult to get hurt..

If Schroeder and Hodgson play like Skinner and Couture did last year, why would we send either of them down? I'm not saying they will play that well, but if they do then they are definitely worth holding on to.

Sturm wouldn't make the cut at that point; however, we could trade away one of our wingers for another defenseman.

Until he comes back and you have to move salary. LTIR isn't something a team wants to use regularly.

As long as your name isn't Sami Salo.

I'm not so sure about that considering it was bothering him during the playoffs. That was 2 months ago.

Henriks injury in the playoffs was a back injury after a crosscheck in the 2nd round.

I know about the back injury but the way he was always shaking out his leg or stretching on the bench, it would lead me to believe that he also had a hip injury.

That was my initial reaction.

I just don't see a scenario where the Canucks don't make the playoffs.

We have:
Colorado
Minnesota
Calgary
Edmonton
in our division..

Our defence will be superior enough to win the division so relax guys. I just realized how bad our division is in terms of defensive talent. No Burns, no Regehr, no Foote and the defence in Edmonton is non-existent.

People are vastly underrating Hamhuis-Bieksa and Edler-Salo with Luongo behind them. The Canucks are still an excellent defensive team. If we were to rely on only one player to carry our offense, who better than the defending Art Ross winner?

I don't think Hodgson or Schroeder will play top 6 C. There's an excellent chance that Malhotra takes over that #1 spot.

Who knows? Maybe these injuries are blessings in disguises. Kesler/Henrik will have less mileage for a second trip to the finals and we may replace them with a legitimate top 6 centre due to the injuries. Once Hank/Kesler come back, we'll have 3 top six Cs and an abundance of depth. Or maybe someone who needed the opportunity will step up?

If, & I stress if, Raymond, Kesler and Henrik are out to start the season on LTIR, I think a lot of us are underestimating our other centres and wingers that make up the rest of the team. For example, Lapierre showed he was quite competant to handle the 3rd line. Why should he not be able to handle a top 6 role for a couple of months?

Sedin - Lapierre -Samuelsson
Sturm - Hodgson - Burrows
Hansen - Malhotra - Nolan
Higgins - Duco - Oreskovich

Because Malhotra is more of a defensive centre, I'd rather he stay on the third line, let Lapierre handle the pressure on the top line and let Hodgson mature on the 2nd line. Duco in my opinion is better suited to handle 4th line centre than Ebbett. I can't see Schoeder being NHL ready at all for the start of the season.

Just because a player has shown competence as a 3rd line player doesn't mean they are suited for, or can handle, top minutes and produce offensively. I'd put Sturm or Higgins at center in the top 6 before I ever considered Lapierre.

Personally, if (God forbid) we are missing this much offensive firepower from our lineup to start the season I think AV is going to revert to his old style of defensive hockey to start the season and hope that Luongo and our defense can steal us some games.

Not sure why this has blown up to this degree over some minor injury report as well.

Lapierre played well as a grinding 3rd liner in the playoffs.

But he had all of 5 points in 25 games in that role, with decent wingers in Hansen and Torres.

Those are not top 6 numbers. The Canucks could squeeze by with Hodgson and Malhotra as the top 2 centers, but it won't be pretty. I could see them using Hansen as a center on the 2nd line - he played a couple games at center late in the season after Malhotra went down.

My lines if Hank and Kesler are injured would be.

Daniel-Hodgson-Samuelsson
Higgins-Schroeder-Burrows
Hansen-Malhotra-Sturm
Nolan-Lapierre-Oreskovich

Don't forget Ebbett, he is a better player than people here think.

But if we are down 3 out of our top 6 it would be a tough way to start a season no matter who tries to fill those holes.

Could get Lou in a rhythm though.
