Traded this summer to the Anaheim Ducks, it appears as though commentary on the career of Kevin Bieksa from this point will be almost exclusively reflective in nature.

Given this, we've a constant body of work with which to observe when assigning Bieksa's place among the all-time greats along the Canucks blue line. Frankly, it's an impressive resume which spans a decade and includes some awesome memories along the way.

One of the fun things about these prospect profiles is that we get to look way into the future, daydreaming about what's yet to come for the Canucks organization. At the same time, that gets a little stale sometimes; occasionally, you want to talk about a player who will make an immediate impact on the roster.

It is often said that the light that burns twice as bright, lasts half as long. One could certainly argue as much for Igor Larionov in his briefest of stays with the Vancouver Canucks, between 1989-92.
