Things were certainly looking up in Vancouver during the 2008-09 campaign, especially considering the note they ended the 2007-08 season with. After failing to make the playoffs, the Canucks bounced back to secure the third seed in the Western Conference.

Had the NHL lockout not come to pass, it certainly would have been an interesting training camp in Penticton this season for the Vancouver Canucks. They have graduated a number of players over the past five years, leaving only a couple of select, higher-tier prospects to mature and come of age. With Ryan Kesler and Alex Edler still on the shelf after surgeries, it was shaping up to be an impromptu game of musical chairs to fill the holes left by Kesler’s and Edler’s convalescence.
