Predictions:

Schroeder lights it up in the preseason, makes the Canucks take a real hard look before sending him down.

Hodgson is ready and makes the team as the 2nd line center while Kesler is out. Produces at a pretty nice clip to start the year.

Sauve similar to Schroeder, but defensively. Makes it hard on the team to send him down.

Nolan makes the team. Bitz plays. 4th line is Nolan/Lappy/Bitz with Oreskovich as the 13th forward.

Let's just call this 'the best case scenario'. Optimist.

All possible. It seems like there is always someone who surprises in camp. Last year it was Tanev. Before that Shirokov. It will be interesting to see who it is this year. Sauve or Schroeder are not bad bets.

I could see Sauve looking impressive in camp, party cause of his tools and party cause the quality of competition is lower than real NHL games. Less risk of his flaws being exposed continually.

Who knows what'll happen but my guess is he is pencilled in for the Wolves with very little chance of playing more than 5 games for the Canucks again this year.

Really hope Rodin's shoulder is alright. He would be one hell of a prospect.

Schroeder seemed to have a pretty solid exhibition season last year once he was paired with Brendan Morrison. It'll be about the quality of linemates around him--he's got skills, but he's certainly better when he's paired with other skilled players. He's not a guy that will crack the lineup as a grinder.

Just saw on the qmjhl website that Denmark U20 were playing against the Armada tonight.

Nicklas Jensen had 4 pts while being +3 in a 5-4 loss

Looks like he was the player of the team

Just tought you would like to know

Everything is taking forever to be announced. We're now 11 days from the start of rookie camp and 2 weeks away from the Young Stars tournament but we haven't heard anything regarding rosters. Last year this time I believe most teams already announced their rosters.

Not to mention we haven't even had our official training camp announcement. Although the Canucks are notoriously slow at announcing these things. The offseason cannot end soon enough.

I'm more optimistic about Jensen and Rodin than Hodgson and Schroeder (but that may just be because they are newer and still shiny)

Hodgson and Schroeder need buffing.

Every day I'm waiting for any sort of announcement for training camp. It's getting quite annoying. Im planning on taking in 1-2 days of camp live this year( if at ubc) I need to book a couple days off work.

Also no state of the franchise announcement.

I'm friends with Sauve on facebook lol... Moved out to Vancouver for good (at least camp) about a week ago and attended a barbecue at Hamhuis's house the first night he was here. Another funny fact about Yann, he drinks a lot but never really gets drunk...(at least in the off-season).

Oh facebook...

A reassuring sight on Monday was Mikael Samuelsson doing drills – stopping, starting, making quick cuts and tight turns – looking, in fact, like surgery he had in mid-May has left no lasting pain or weakness.

“First of all, every time you step onto the ice for the first time in summer, you feel stiff,” the 34-year-old said after a well-paced two-hour skate Monday at a local rink. “It doesn't feel any worse, any different, from the other years, so that's a good sign.

“I feel stronger in the area I had surgery on.”

It was obvious Alex Edler wasn’t himself in the Vancouver Canucks’ 4-0 loss to Boston in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup final last June.

Once the game was over and the Bruins had taken the Stanley Cup back to Beantown, Edler revealed why: He’d had two fingers broken in the third period of Game 6 in Boston.

It was so bad he couldn’t hold his stick properly and dropped it more than once.

On Monday, he revealed further information: One of his fingers hasn’t yet healed, despite 11 weeks having ensued.

“My finger is still healing,” the defenceman said. “They say it’s going to heal, I just have to give it time.”

Edler added that he’ll probably have it looked at again next week.

Edler, Mikael Samuelsson and Marco Sturm were the only veterans skating in a group of eight Canucks on Monday.

“It’s been a short summer,” Edler said. “I never played that far (into June) before. August came a little quicker.

“Everyone is trying to spend as much time as they can at home, I guess. We’re a week or two behind.

“More guys will start coming in the next week or so.”
Hopefully Edler's finger heals up soon.

Anton Rodin, Kevin Connauton, Adam Polasek, Sebastian Erixon and Darren Archibald are the other five. Glad to see Rodin here early.

Iain Macintyre showing why he's terrible again. This is his comment in regards to players starting to skate on Monday...

And why wasn’t Cody Hodgson skating Monday?
http://www.theprovince.com/sports/sh...979/story.html

Oh, I don't know, maybe he just spent a week at grueling camp with one of the most popular hockey trainers where he skated with players like Stamkos, Skinner, Seguin, Cammalleri, Yakupov, Wolski, Downie and Neal. But no, how dare Hodgson not show up in town for a casual skate where they don't even have enough players to scrimmage.

It seems like the entire management team took vacations or something for most of the off-season; not much has really happened since the early signings, and the Fedoruk/Nolan PTO's were apparently agreed upon much earlier as well. Even Oreskovich has yet to be signed; something that shouldn't be particularly difficult. Maybe they just straight up aren't doing anything. Or maybe there is still just on on-going 'pity party' about the Finals.

Don't they normally also have their "State of the Franchise" address to season ticket holders by now as well? I remember last year they rolled out Manny and Hamhuis and had a good Q&A with the ST holders and streamed it on their site. Haven't heard anything about this years.

I took it as a joke. A reference to all the silliness surrounding him last year.

Decent stats for Lessard. 66 pts in 62 games as a 19 year old isn't earth shattering but decent.

Looks like the Young Stars tournament is being shown on Sportsnet. At least some of them anyways. I see NHL Hockey at 7:30pm on September 11th and 4pm on September 12th on my Optik TV guide, which is when the Canucks play Edmonton and Calgary.

Danny boy is back and skating at UBC. Henrik isn't. Guessing he's resting his hip.

Edit: Schroeder is as well.

It's in the air, can't wait! I know this is the shortest summer we've had in 17 years, but it's felt like eons since we've seen hockey.
