Canucks Lines To Start Training Camp

I'm just gonna quote Jason Botchford:

No real surprises to start training camp.

Here’s the way the lines shake out for Tuesday:





Connauton (in for Hamhuis who tweaked his groin)-Bieksa






As Botchford says: not many surprises there. Not much time to prepare so the regulars need to get their legs before the season starts on Saturday night against the Ducks.


Projected Starting Lines At Canucks Training Camp

It looks as though Mason Raymond will start Training Camp on line 2. That may make many sigh in discontent however: Alain Vigneault had this to say today:

"Mason has proven in the past that he can score and Booth has proven he can score at the NHL level," added Vigneault. "They’ll get an opportunity and if they don’t do it quickly enough we’ll have some decisions to make. You guys know how quick I am on the trigger."

It looks like Maxim Lapierre will center Chris Higgins and Jannik Hansen on line 3. Andrew Ebbett and Jordan Schroeder will get a chance to center line 2. Manny Malhotra will likely center Dale Weise and Zack Kassian on line 4.

Chris Higgins said that he prefers to play the wing:

"You play along the boards more and that’s a strength of my game," he said. "I’m happy to help out anywhere but I prefer to play wing and I just love the way Jannik plays. He’s tenacious with a hard forechecking style and is a smart player with a good amount of skills."

Here Comes Cam Barker. Hide Your Children.

The rumors are true. As per AV, the PTO is official. Hold on to your butts.
