Hey everybody!

Here's your Tuesday edition of the Canucks Army podcast! Our guest in this episode was the inimitable Cam Charron, and we discussed a wide variety of topics - some of them requested by you, the listener!

We talked about the potential of Chris Tanev playing in the top four, we talked about the shelf-life of the Vancouver Canucks core, and we discussed Kesler's future output (I went on and on about my theory that Ryan Kesler's career may end up being very similar to Chris Drury's).

As always you can stream the podcast from this post

Thanks for listening, and check back on Thursday when we'll have a fresh podcast for your listening pleasure!

Cheers.

Addendum on the Kesler note:

Here are the five most-recent players who have broken 40 goals in both their 26th and 27th years:

Vincent Lecavalier Dany Heatley Jaromir Jagr Teemu Selanne John LeClair

Suffice to say, let's not get our hopes up over Kesler. We're definitely looking at regression, and may only crack 30.

@Cam Charron

That's a reasonable expectation. His SH% last year was 15.8, a career high. His average is 12.4. At that rate, he would have scored 32.

I think you missed one of the most significant pillars. Alex Burrows. His contract @ 2 million, and the ability to rely on him on the top line and contributing in the ways he does makes him per dollar our most valuable player on our team and why our window is two years.

I hate that guy, but it's hard to argue he's not effective.

Based on that? Wow.
