Team Needs:

The Canucks were praised as an early arrival to the playoff dance with their strong commitment and positive results this summer. Now their fans have lots to look forward to and maybe just maybe, some additional help in the form of Russian first rounder RW Vasili Podkolzin, who already has had success in the KHL. You've probably seen LW Nils Hoglander in the highlight of bis lacrosse style goal. Although his skating, speed and size all leave something to be desired, he is special when the puck is on his stick. Still in waiting is defenseman Olli Juolevi who has all the desirables that point to success after some developmental time is put in. Jett Woo is still in the dub, and don't count him out to make a place for himself either. The Canucks won't pick until the 81st overall, and will use the picks in 3-7 to ferret out some additional talent. --Bill Placzek--
