Well, that was a relatively uneventful week of Vancouver Canucks fandom. I mean, unless you're of the hardcore variety and you're into development camps and so on. In which case, yeah, there was at least that. For the neophytes among us, not so much.
I mean, the Canucks did sign somebody. They inked Michael Carcone, fresh off the heels of his development camp showing, to an entry-level contract. That's something, I guess. The big trade that we're all waiting for has yet to drop, though. Similarly, the Canucks haven't been connected to any free agents of consequence.
Yet you fine folks still came up with a series of questions about the Canucks. And I will do my best to answer them in kind.

It's Summer, which means it's time for fun. As the articles fly out awarding teams a Stanley Cup berth before the season even begins, I decided to have a little fun this week with the roundtable.
I asked "If you could pick any one forward, one defenseman and one goalie to start a team right at this moment, who are you picking?"
See the answers after the jump!

The Vancouver Canucks just finished their development camp and plucked their first free agent from the lot. According to my sources, the Canucks have signed Michael Carcone, formerly of the Drummondville Voltigeurs to an entry-level contract for three seasons.

The Canucks usually conclude their development camp by sending the prospects up the infamous Grouse Grind, followed thereafter by the Summer Summit. They've forgone that tradition, though. They kicked off this year's festivities with fitness testing at Rogers Arena and afterwards the players travelled to Shawnigan Lake to take part in team-building activities and on-ice play.
This was their time to distinguish themselves as an emerging prospect or drive home their status as blue chippers. Everyone knows the highly touted draftees -- players like Thatcher Demko and Brock Boeser. Who among the lesser known players stood out, though. And what did the local media have to say about them?
