Top 5 Defensemen in Vancouver Canucks History: #2

Thanks to everyone for voting in Poll 1, the winner was Matthias Ohlund.



Time now for Poll 2 where I added Ed Jovanovski and voted for Jykri Lumme, if you wish to see me add someone let me know.

Also vote based upon a player's time with the team in ? and not his overall career.

Here are all the defenseman to have played for Vancouver in their history:

Jovo is the only perennial all-star and Norris candidate among them

Nucks fans:

Is the level Hamhuis is at now better than these guys? Obviously he hasn't had the run with Vancouver as the others have, I just want to know for perspective.

Hamhuis from 2010-2013 is better than any other Canucks defenseman ever.

Lumme should be winning this, voted for him.

Add Hamhuis and Bieksa, please remove Dennis Kearns as he has no business in the top 100 Canucks defensemen

Hamhuis should be #2. Hell you could even make a case for #1.

This list is quite depressing.

Definitely Hamhuis.

The most embarrassing thing about this list is that Kearns is on it.

Voted Jovo

Add Reinhart.

Um you cant give him that crown so fast. Jovo did more as I hazily recAll. Even ohlunds body of work would put him ahead.

Jovo was basically a faster Edler. Same offensive contributions and same brain farts and bad giveaways leading to 2 on 1s the other way.

Ohlund's lack of footspeed was troublesome, but his body of work trumps Hamhuis' at the moment.

In terms of peak performance, Hamhuis as a Canucks defenseman can only be challenged by Brown or Reinhart.
