To say the hockey fans in Vancouver have been frustrated with their team over the last few years would be an understatement. The Canucks lost a heartbreaking game 7 to Boston in the 2011 Stanley Cup finals, which kicked off riots in downtown Vancouver. In 2012, they had an early first round exit after compiling the best regular season record in the whole league. It seems Canucks fans will settle for nothing less than a Cup this year.

Most of the talk during the lockout was regarding what to do with goalie Roberto Luongo. The Canucks have made the decision to go with Cory Schneider as there #1 goalie in a city known as a graveyard for goal tenders. They are looking to shop Luongo for a trade and who they acquire will have a major impact on their team.

In terms of offence, Vancouver will lean heavily on forwards Daniel and Henrik Sedin for scoring along with Alex Burrows on the first line. The second line took a hit with Center Ryan Kesler going down with injury and his status should be monitored as it will definitely have an impact on the team in the early going.  The team said Kesler has been making improvements and is expected back sometime in the next 6 weeks.

Once again, Vancouver’s defence will be anchored by Dan Hamhuis along with line mate  Kevin Bieksa. There is a new addition in Jason Garrison who has a big slap shot from the point and put up 16 goals last year with the Florida Panthers. The Canucks feel that with forwards like the Sedins cycling the puck and setting him up for one timers will be a huge weapon on the power play.

The odds maker has Vancouver at +1000 to win the Stanley Cup in 2013.
