Desjardins, Linden and Benning addressing the media. "We have difficult decisions to make this off-season" - Linden pic.twitter.com/sEhvQ2RoAf— Vancouver Canucks (@VanCanucks) April 29, 2015
The Vancouver Canucks brain trust of Jim Benning, Trevor Linden, and Willie Desjardins held court for one final time in the 2014-2015 season earlier this morning, fielding a variety of questions from media on topics ranging from player deployment to prospects and the future.
There's a lot to dig into today, and some pretty compelling things about the organization's philosophy were shared. Let's dig in to what was revealed after the jump.

Well, that was it. In the most important game of the season, the Canucks blew a 3-0 lead, allowed 7 goals, and lost to the Calgary Flames. I hope you all forgive me for a bit of a rambling postgame tonight. I'm as depressed and angry about this outcome as any of you are, and I'm certain we'll have ample opportunity to pick over this carcass in the coming weeks and months.
For a look at where it all went wrong and some parting thoughts on the 2014-2015 season, join me after the jump.

After getting blown out by the Brandon Wheat Kings in game 1 of the WHL's Eastern Conference finals yesterday night, the Calgary Hitmen will be in tough to tie the series back up, as they will be without the services of Jake Virtanen. Vancouver's 6th overall draft pick this past summer has reportedly been suspended for a "to be determined" amount of time for a headshot in the dying moments of the Hitmen's huge loss.
For a look at the play that got Virtanen in trouble with the league, read past the jump.

With their season on the line Thursday night, the Canucks came out and controlled the Calgary Flames. Once again, they fell behind early, but as they've done so many times this season, Vancouver battled back and thanks to another banner performance from the Sedin twins, managed to skate away with a 2-1 victory in the fifth game of their first round series.
Although it was a strong effort, it was far from perfect, and the Canucks will need to be even better still if they want to beat Calgary on their home ice in game 6 to once again keep their season alive. Join us after the jump for a recap of Vancouver's huge game 5 win.
