Top Questions Facing the Canucks:

  1. Can the Canucks stay healthy this season?

Last season the Canucks became riddled with injuries and to key players to end last season. With an anemic roster to begin with, the Canucks cannot allow to go through a season with so many injuries. Especially to players like Bo Horvat, Brock Boeser, Sven Baertschi, Chris Tanev, and Eric Gudbranson who make up the majority of the offense and defense.

 

2. What is the identity of the Canucks now?

With future Hall of Famers Daniel and Henrik Sedin now retired, the Vancouver are faced with what is their most trying question to date. Who are they? A big part of this question lies on General Manager Jim Benning who last season faced criticism for the Canucks’ lack of direction as the team now transitions out of the Sedin era. Plus head coach Travis Green will feel the pressure this season to guide the Canucks toward meaningful games.
