Next up in the Canucks Army countdown for the All-Time Best Players will be the defenders. Given Brian Burke's emphasis on building from the crease outward, it should come as no surprise that the list is comprised mainly of players either acquired or drafted in the years he managed this franchise. It's a fairly strong list. What it lacks in Hall of Fame talent is more than made up for with solid depth throughout - there's no massive drop-off in talent here, to be sure.

And with that, let's get this ball rolling! Here are the best ten defencemen in Vancouver Canucks history, as selected by the writers at Canucks Army.
