Vancouver Canucks v Edmonton Oilers

The Canucks management has gone on a signing rampage of late.  They've inked several of their supposedly top prospects to entry-level deals in the past couple of weeks. The problem, if you want to call it a problem, is that the Canucks don't have the room in their lineup for all these prospects. Many of them will end up with the Manitoba Moose next season, who are in desperate need of replenishing. But they won't all stay in the Canucks system.

So the question is... Which Canucks prospects will stay and which will go?

Caucks goalie Luongo makes save against Kings during Western Conference quarter final in Los Angeles

Apologies to all who read this series. I'm lazy and am late on this final installment.

With the Canucks bowing out early from the playoffs yet again, it's once again another opportunity for Canucks fans to question the constitution of their favourite team. We at Canucks Army are quite happy to mercilessly rip apart the team and pretend to play General Manager. If we were in control, the defense, the offense, the goaltending, and the coaching staff would all see changes, to varying degrees. But three second-round exists in four years is no longer acceptable to long-suffering Canucks fans, especially given the high-end talent and price tags associated with the team.

In part 3 of our Year End De-Brief, Canucks Army will examine the goaltending and the coaching.
