Are you still not over the 1982 Stanley Cup Finals? Then this game is for you! A huge rematch between the team with a “mentally fragile” Jordan Eberle and the “award the Calder to” Mathew Barzal versus the “he might be starting but that could change” Anders Nilsson and “I don’t score but that’s okay” Brendan Gaunce.

The NHL Draft eligible players coming out of the Western Hockey League for 2018 is rather scarce. There are four defensemen who could be called upon in the first 62 picks, but after that, it is anybody’s guess.

What have I learned through this long process of fixing the Vancouver Canucks? Well for one, this is going to take forever to complete. We are on the right track, and I could probably do this for 10 more parts and still not be in the playoffs.

How I Would Fix the Vancouver Canucks: Part One

There are a lot of sports fans who sit at home and watch their favourite team suck it up year after year and believe that if they were in charge, they could do a hell of a better job than Jim Benning whoever is in charge. As somebody who is not at all qualified to become a General Manager of an NHL team (besides the hundreds of hours playing hockey video games), I’m going to work my way into fixing the Vancouver Canucks by making a series of decisions that will eventually lead to this team becoming a dynasty.
