After a short trek from Penticton to Vancouver, the Canucks Brass took some time to field a few questions from the media on the first day of training camp.

Take a look at what Travis Green and Jim Benning have to say about things like the addition of youth, who stood out in Penticton and other things... Including the upcoming China trip.

The players also took some time out of their day to discuss the upcoming season with the media. Bo Horvat, Sven Baertschi, Jacob Markstrom, and Anders Nilsson give us some insight into their expectations for this year. Side note: Check out the backwards baseball cap sun burn on Sven!

The new folks (Thomas Vanek, Michael Del Zotto, Sam Gagner) and er, uh, Brandon um, er, ah Sutter also chatted with the media.

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: 4 Swedes sit down at a table, 3 of them get asked questions in the first 12 minutes... and Alex Edler looks around trying to stay engaged. Then the media springs ‘how was your summer? at Edler. Then back to the Sedins! Daniel and Henrik Sedin with Loui Eriksson and Alex Edler took some time out of their day to engage the media.

There’s some Canucks hockey talk for you to digest! It gets closer and closer every day!
