Here at Canucks Army, we love three things more than anything in the world: prospects, prospect rankings, and whining about prospect rankings.  Every summer we vote on and rank the top-20 Canucks prospects to take stock of what's in the system, and every summer we hear vocal complaints from our readers they disagree with our rankings.

So this year, in our mid-term ranking, we gave you the chance to vote on prospects and have a say on these players.  Since our summer rankings, we've simplified the definition of "prospect" to any player in the Vancouver Canucks' system that is eligible for the Calder Trophy if they were to play in the NHL this year.  This means that players like Linden Vey and Joacim Eriksson who were not rated over the summer will be covered in this series.

Without further adieu, here are the Canucks prospects that were rated 16th to 13th.

Canucks Army Postgame: Dead in the Water

Hosting a San Jose Sharks club on the second half of back-to-backs - a team that lost just last night to the Calgary Flames - provided the Vancouver Canucks with as good a chance as any to pass their marine-animal competitors in the Pacific Division playoff chase. The Canucks were well rested and had finished their last contest with an offensive surge the likes of which their fans haven't been treated to in months. The stage was set with opportunities aplenty for the Canucks to get back on track in what's been an otherwise uninspiring 2015.

And, oh, how they disappointed. Whether you believe in "momentum" or otherwise, there's no denying what little the Canucks could have hypothetically gained from their last contest failed to carry forward into this one. Their offense inept, their defense permissive and their special teams a complete non-factor, Vancouver limped lifelessly to a 5-1 loss at the hands of their Southern Pacific counterparts. But hey, we did out-hit the Sharks... 

All that and more, on the other side of the jump.

Dreger: Canucks interested in Evander Kane, 'would love to bring the hometown kid back to Vancouver'

Are the chemistry conscious Vancouver Canucks interested in bringing Winnipeg Jets forward Evander Kane to the west coast of Canada? They should be, but it would be a bit of a surprising move for an organization that has jettisoned a variety of players in the recent past for reasons relating to "character" and off-ice citizenship.

Those concerns might not be enough to dissuade Vancouver when it comes to Kane. In fact they're reportedly very interested in pursuing the embattled Jets power forward, according to TSN's Darren Dreger. Unfortunately, they're not alone.
