The Canucks were fairly active on the market this summer, and we're starting to get a sense of what the team will look like on the opening night. Some question marks have yet to be answered, will Tanner Pearson find his way back into the lineup after missing almost a year? Will Tyler Myers be a part of this team once his bonus is paid?

1st: 65 - 40 - 96

After the success they had, it's only fair to assume that Tocchet will try and bring them back together as they were one of the most lethal 5-on-5 lines.

2nd: 72-9-6


Miller and Boeser showed progress under Tocchet and a chemistry definitely grow between the two. Adding a speedy winger who's great at forechecking could definitely do some damage.

3rd: 21 - Suter - 8

Small, sneaky, fast and effective, this has the potential to grow into a great third line for the Canucks. Hoglander grew his defensive game during his time in Abbotsford.

4th: 81-53-92

Possibly the best checking line the Canucks could ask for with their current lineup. While Podkolzin on the 4th isn't ideal, playing with two defensively responsible player like Joshua and Blueger can't be a bad thing.

The defensive pairings are still an enigma, especially with the rumors surrounding Tyler Myers, I'd be surprised if Hirose wasn't part of the opening roster. Ian Cole and Carson Soucy are expected to complete the team's top four along side Filip Hronek and Quinn Hughes.


The Canucks will display a young yet experienced group of players, will it be enough to make it to the playoffs?
