If there was one thing clear about the Canucks early exit from the post-season, the lack of secondary scoring and production from the second line was a large issue. So it’s definitely worrisome that Ryan Kesler is still on the mend (with no schedule to return yet) from off-season surgery AND David Booth has encountered a temperamental groin, leaving him on the shelf for four to six weeks.
So how do you replace two-thirds of your second line for close to a third of the shortened NHL season? This is where you come in.
We want you to tell us what your answer to the Canucks second line woes. If the hockey gods like your answer, we and our friends at the Vancouver Canucks have a pair of tickets to Saturday’s home opener to give to you.
- For one entry: In the comments section of this post, tell us what you would do to plug the holes in the Canucks second line. Maybe it’s a combination of existing players or a deal you pull the trigger on. (Make sure you enter your email address when you log-in so we can contact you if you win.)

I entered and RT to win #Canucks tickets from @canuckshockey @VanCanucks & @lyteforce nucks.co/42 #CHB #OTOW
You have until 6:00 PM on Friday, January 18th to enter. Once the contest closes, we will randomly pick one lucky entrant who will become the proud owner of a pair of upper bowl tickets to the home opener on Saturday, donated by our friends at the Vancouver Canucks. You must be able to pick the tickets from Will Call at Rogers Arena (they will be available after 6pm) prior to puck drop.
You don’t have much time. What are you waiting for?
UPDATE: Congratulations to Shawn Car (@ShawnVanCity) with her comment (and line) of Higgins/Malhotra/Hansen. She’s won the pair of tickets to the game tomorrow night!
