Five years ago we had..

Sedin-Sedin-Pyatt
Burrows-Kesler-
Naslund-Morrison-
-Ritchie-

With guys like Matt Pettinger, Brad Isbister, Jeff Cowan, Mason Raymond, Ryan Shannon, Trevor Linden etc sprinkled through the rest of the lineup.

That's five guys who have been around the entire time since then and I expect that five years from now there will have been a similar level of turnover since every single current Canuck forward (except Kassian) will have been eligible to hit UFA by that time. Other than Kassian, Weise and Hansen all of them will be over 32.

There are about three Canucks forward prospects who are locks to get a serious look in the NHL (Schroeder, Gaunce, Jensen) and you can pencil in a bunch of project players currently in the system but that is massively charitable at this point.

Lucic - MacKinnon - Kane
Westerholm - Westerholm - JEFF Carter
Jensen - Hodgson - Kassian
Myself - Lapierre - Sweatt

Sauve - Bieksa
Connauton - Schultz
Ellington - Patrick White

Luongo
Schneider


laugh all you want but this has just as good a chance of happening as any other lineup posted in this thread...it's impossible to know what's going to happen to this roster in the next year let alone five...

Signing these guys make us tougher to play against.

Alright, I'll bite. I just don't know how fast Ben Archibald will be on skates, though considering he'll be 39.

Ohlund - Salo
Mitchell - Bieska

Saborin

Top prospects: Bourdon, Edler, Reid (lol)
Nonis, AV

Prospects bust or die (RIP Bourdon), players who are supposed to retire as a Canuck move on, some regress alarmingly quick.
It kind of depends on how strong an organization Gillis has built by then. In the link to an actual 'post your team in 5 years' from 5 years ago (no one did the Canucks) thread, while lots were waaaay off some are actually fairly close, like Detroit. Here is an example from that thread:

Zetterberg-Datsyuk-Franzen
Mursak-Filppula-Axelsson
Abdelkader-Emmerton-Helm
Ritola-Andersson-Torquato

Kronwall-Ericsson
Stuart-Kindl
Smith-Vet UFA or one of Quincey or Pyett

Two of Howard/ Larsson/ Mccolumn

Some guys aren't quite where they expected but the bolded actually sis play for Detroit last season.

Look at our team 5 years ago, we had Pyatt and Bulis as our top 2 RW's. The team Burke left Nonis had piss poor depth, and roster spots were being filled with scrubs. The Canucks organization have been making huge strides in depth for all positions since then, and as such should reflect a lower turnover rate over the next 5 years because the guys we have will actually be worth holding onto.

Hard to say exactly what we'll look like but I'd bet the average prediction will be around 50% accurate.

Lulay as a 3C? This lineup still doesn't solve the issue of having a good two-way 3C. He's strictly offense, and that line would get torn up defensively because of that reason.

Lulay would be stapled to the bench by AV.

While our roster turner over, over the past five years, has been dramatic. Please refer to the roster 10 years ago:

http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/l...000392003.html

While I, like everyone else, am worried about the lack of prospect depth, we may not be talent-barren five years off.

This. It's hilarious to see the predictions from years ago for the Canucks, because we had such horrible players that MG quickly got rid of. But turnover for this current edition of the Nux should be much lower, agreed.

Hey, at least he's won a league championship, which is more than you can say for this team.

It'll be neat to look back on this. Hello to myself from the past!!

Well you had already given up on them when they were back to back Art Ross winners so we'll see about that regression.



But that aside, five years ago 06/07 (not counting this season) we had the Sedins, Edler, Kesler, Bieksa, Burrows and of course Luongo. Hanson and Raymond was in AHL for the whole season (Edler is in this pack too).

What can be said about this then? Probably a lot of things but one is that (with counting Edler as a prospect). We got 5 regular skaters left and 3 of the AHL-players. Let us make this a law. Keep 5 regular skaters from this season and just 3 from Chicago (and one goalie just to be stringent).

With that reasoning we might see these players in five years:
Burrows, Kesler, Edler, Hamhuis, Bieksa and Schneider.

From the AHL: Läck (awesome tandem), Jensen and Tanev

Even this is probably wrong in more than 50% of the names. The rest of the future players are currently not in Vancouver or in Chicago; more than half the team is probably just a lottery to guess if they are with the team. So uncertainty is the conclusion, which we already knew.

I will be sorely disappointed if 5 years from now Ryan Kesler if our #1 C.

Keep him on the 2nd line, or 1st line W depending on the personnel.

This team made the cup finals, and the roster players have adequate playoff experience now. The team 5 years ago had scrubs as depth players. Less turnover than that roster for sure.Depending on if the team stays competitive in the next 5 years I can definitely see current core-guys with character - Burrows/Bieksa/Hamhuis being relied on to play the veteran roles like Detroit has had in the past with Maltby, Draper, etc.

I would hope the Sedins stick around, but at 37.. I'm doubtful, I see them re-signing for 2 years at the end of their current contracts, then heading back to Sweden.

XXX-XXX-Jensen
XXX-Kesler-Kassian
Burrows-XXX-Hansen
XXX-Mallet-XXX

XXX-XXX
Garrison-Tanev
Hamhuis-Bieksa

Schneider

That is about all I'd feel somewhat-confident in predicting with this team.

I think the roster in five years will be exactly the same as last season. The lockout will finally be over, and everyone will be rested. Kesler should be getting close to 100%.
