The Canucks played two relatively uneventful games this week and Bo Horvat is the only one who did anything of note, so today I'm going to rank the team a little differently. Last season, I ranked the Canucks based on the best .gif I could find of each of them. Surely with all of the new Canucks and new content, there are enough .gifs to do a 2016/17 version of the same. I apologize for the lack of originality - it was this or alphabetically by last name.

It's the moment you've all been waiting for: we're finally unveiling our pick for the Vancouver Canucks' top prospect! If you've been following along, it should be pretty obvious at this point who it's going to be - I mean, everyone knows who the high end guys are here, so it's just process of elimination, right? Right.

This guy is a natural goal scorer, and could be a contributor in the big club's lineup sooner rather than later. He's the sniper we've all been waiting for. You know who I'm talking about. Vancouver's top prospect could be none other than..

It's Brock Boeser dammit.

All-Star weekend is usually jam-packed with stuff. There's so much to do and so much to see, so what's wrong with taking the back streets? You'll never know if you don't go, you'll never shine if you don't glow. The All-Star weekend could use a little freshening up though, and the NHL has tried multiple things to make it happen. (RIP Fantasy Draft)

All that glitters is gold though, and only shooting stars break the mold. What idea would you use to break the mold? I asked our writers in this week's roundtable.
