Past Canuck Players

Post by Madcombinepilot »

So I was reading Twitter the other day, an there is lots of 'greatest lineup of all time' kinda things, and which past player would you want in his prime in this lineup, etc..

So, I figured this would be a good way to kill some time... you can only replace 9 players, and you have to rebuild the team around the current 'build type'
2 scoring lines
1 energy line
1 checking line


Naslund - Petersson - Bertuzzi
Sedin - Sedin - Bure
Miller - Horvat - Virtanen
May - Rypien - Ferlund

Edler - Hughes
Ohlund - Tanev
Myers - Jovanovski

Markstrom
Demko

... so then I go at to thinking about speed. Then Bure..

Which led me to the current question:
Was Bure faster than McDavid?
Has anyone clocked that?

I always thought this team needs a RS D-man with a big shot more than anything, basically a Sami Salo type. I figured it wouldn't hurt to add some scoring punch, grit and some of the all-time best Canucks. :D

1) Nasi-Petey-Bert
2) Dank-Hank-Bure
3) Miller-Kes-Jake
4) Ferkland-BoHo-Linden

- Brockstar, Sutter

1) Ohlund-Myers
2) Hughes-Tanev
3) Edler-Salo

- Tryamkin

1) Cpt Kirk
2) Marky Mark

If you go by his peak season he was fantastic. Too bad it was only one single season

Compared to some guys getting on there like Rypien and Cassels?!

Kes had 5 straight healthy seasons of over 20 goals, three straight over 25 goals, and one crazy 41-goal season. Then had 3 20-goal seasons with the Ducks before falling apart.

Rypien would have slaughtered that dude who body slammed Petey, and would have redefined 'speed bag' with Marchand in 2011

He was good but only had one elite season IMO.

Cassels doesn't belong though lol.

Curt Fraser would have destroyed Rypien, and he could actually play the game.
