If you were to go back in time and bring back prime aged second-tier Canuck to the present so they could play on the current version of the Vancouver Canucks who would it be?

So, like, you're not bringing back Bure, Naslund, Linden, a Sedin, Kesler, ect. No all-time greats because that's less interesting discussion. 


It's a silly thread, sure, but I'm curious as to who you think would move the needle for the current roster the most.


Personally, I'd bring back Salo.

burr, no-brainer for me. the pestilence, aggression, grit, two-way responsibility, work ethic, clutchness and heart are all examples this group needs. 


edit: chris tanev would be right up there, too. 


Burr would be a great add


I thought about Tanev over Salo but Salo always seemed to stabilize our entire defense when he was in the lineup, he brought a calming presence and that huge shot

Malholtra... we need our one-eyed 3C PKing faceoff guru back.


Damn, didn't think of him

Willie Mitchell.  I'd prefer Ohlund but I'd consider him a tier too high.


We'd have won the cup with him instead of Ballard imo

Watch out for Tommi Santala.  I hear he's the best 4th line centre money can buy.  :hurhur:


Now that's a name I haven't heard in a while

Who needs a time machine? I'm sure Bieksa could slot in right now and help our D.


Perhaps :classic_ninja:

Burrows, Malhotra, Samuelsson, Ronning, Morrison, Greg Adams for the forwards


For defense, Hamhuis, a healthy Salo, Hedican, Mitchell 


But which single player of the bunch do you think would make the largest impact

Both would fill a need, the defense needs help so probably lean towards Juice.


If it came down to it I'd pick Juice too, we could use Burr's heart and talent up front but man, our D sure could use Juice right now
