The face of the franchise

Desperate for a goal or two, the Vancouver Canucks and head coach Alain Vigneault have started to look to an unexpected source for an answer to their woes.

funny thing is don taylor continues it was his insistence to put TL on the powerplay that influenced vigneault.
Either way, good to see Trev back in the spot light for something other than his off-ice work.

1) Geez that has to show how desperate that team has become. Trevor's usefulness as a reliable offensive threat has been gone for a better part of a decade when he scored 80 points for the 'Nucks in 1995-96!!
2) Since then, 40 points has been his average/a good season for him.. We don't care how good a guy he is, he has to be one of the MOST over rated players to last this long in the NHL in recent memory!

You preach the truth fauxrumors. I would like to subscribe to your newsletter.

If it's true the Canucks are looking to Linden for offensive spark, well, that don't bode well for the second half. He was past-date even in the '98 Olympics!

Even my mother could have scored the goal Linden did. The Sedins did all the work and Linden was wide open. He's got absolutely no offensive ability left in him and I don't understand why so many mediots keep wanting him to be on the PP. Look, he's not a solution. One easy goal doesn't change the fact that he's just not an effective offensive producer.

Well I don't know whether vigneault is taking his inspiration from the Team 1040 afternoon radio crew, but Taylor definitely suggested it. I'm not saying it'll pay any serious dividends. But Taylor definitely brought it up.
