If one of the Vancouver Canucks & # 39; offseason moves, this is: they go for that.
After four straight seasons where they missed the police, Jim Benning does not give up without a fight.
Leading in the last year of his contract, his work is likely to be on line, and he shows.
The veteran defense man Alex Edler was re-signed, with Tyler Myers, Jordie Benn, and Oscar Fantenberg. Add to Quinn Hughes and maybe Olli Juolevi at some point, and the defense of Canucks is unquestionably better than last season.
The team of Benning is also better ahead, with the additions of J.T. Miller and Micheal Ferland to deal with a full season of Tanner Pearson and a healthy Sven Baertschi.
Is Benning Too Much To Get Miller And About Money And Term About Myers? Perhaps, but that's another theme for another day.
In it now and then the Canucks are better. They can even be a stage squad.
With apology to Markus Granlund and Derrick Pouliot, the only sub-strategy of her set-up is Ben Hutton, which is not yet signed and will not be again.
Great, they are an official contender, after they fought on the postseason by nine points in a year in a Western conference in the last season.
The Colorado Avalanche made the populations with just 90 points in the season, which is generally needed under the average.
Since the new playoff system was adopted in 2014, the least points needed to make the postseason 87 were at most 99. The average total point for the second white card team is 92.6.
All this can be said that the Canucks can improve more than a nine point in any standings, in order to end their pyramid order.
While the newcomers draw the headlines, they are still expected to support players. Many of the Canucks are hoping for & # 39; an existing young players in their line.
Kin Elias Pettersson and Brock Boeser take the following stages in their careers and can still get the season better? The same applies to Bo Horvat, who can probably take the responsibility as the captain of Canucks on January 24.
How can good 19-year-old defensive Quinn Hughes be in his first full NHL season? Is Adam Gaudette an NHL regularly on this stage of his career as the third line of Canucks centralized black hole with the love of Brandon Sutter and Jay Beagle central?
Is Jacob Markstrom the trusted number 1, which we have seen last season, or closer to the top-down just before we saw the season ahead?
That is a great question mark for the Canucks, if unpredictable is the goat end in the National Hockey League.
Also important will be the game of Thatcher Demko in his first full season as Markstrom's backup.
The Canucks just earned 16 of a possible 44 points in a 22 games that 's not starting the last season.
Defense must keep it going
The Canucks started the season together with Michael Del Zotto on her second defense team, and the toughest doubles of Derrick Pouliot and Erik Gudbranson on their third pair.
There was only one way to go, and that had risen.
Despite being paid, the analytes say Myers is not a top-scoring defense man, but he is certainly a great up-grade about Gudbranson. Vancouver has also added Hughes and Jordie Benn, who give them six strong defenders to work with.
It is not an elite blue line with any means, but Travis Green should not pass Edler and Chris Tanev if he has in the past.
Her third pairing, like whoever starts in it, is best seen in Benning's time. That makes them good to start the season, but also means that a few major injuries do not arise on earned-level players who are raised in top-four roles.
This setup will not win a Stanley Cup, but it can make the playoffs yesterday.

Where are they mocking?
Three teams fought the playoffs in 2019, causing the postseason to appear in the year. Four new teams made the playoffs in 2018 in comparison with 2017.
Who are the candidates for deciding on the next season of the top?
Maybe it's the Winnipeg Jets that have lost Jacob Trouba's and Myers's defenses, and they get a number of card players in their lifetime (Blake Wheeler, Bryan Little, Mathieu Perreault, and Dustin Byfuggles are all at & gt; side of 30).
Are the Dallas Stars Real? Which one in Calgary, that won in the West in a rule season, but in & # 39; a playoffs flame?
What do we make of the San Jose Sharks, an older team that has lost Joe Pavelski in free for free, that has still taken Joe Thornton up?
The Canucks will have their most competitive season in the season next season, though not exactly that.
Would it be the result of a playoff spot?
It is possible, though, that they need a lot to go straight. Their younger players, their new aquatic creations, their goals division – they have to count on all three areas – not the playoffs they are doing.
