Vancouver Canucks

If there was a glaring weakness on the Vancouver Canucks’ roster last year, it was that big black hole on defence.

The Vancouver Canucks selected Finnish defender Olli Juolevi fifth overall in the 2016 NHL entry draft. He’s been hyped to be the future of the Canucks’ blue line but the question is, should you believe the hype? He was the highest drafted defenceman in 2016, but so far, he’s been outclassed by some fellow draft-mates.

Injuries derailed the surprisingly competitive Vancouver Canucks in December, and they haven’t quite recovered just yet.

For years, Alex Edler has been a polarizing figure in the Vancouver sports market. With injuries and age accumulating, we’ve likely passed the days of prime Edler.

As a team, the Vancouver Canucks have been inconsistent this season. As individuals, certain players have taken great steps forward, whilst others have failed to gain momentum. 27 games in, we should have a good idea of who dresses when Vancouver is fully fit.
