The Canucks three stars

Another week, another tragedy. Right now, this team sucks.

It was challenging to find three standout players, so for this week lets call it “Canucks Three Less Than Awful Players of the Week”.

First LSAPOTW – Alex Burrows

Alex Burrows has been quiet all season, but this week his goal and assist against Phoenix helped keep an otherwise ugly game stay competitive. He’s got 20 goals and 24 assists this campaign, but the Canucks could use a little more from him come playoff time.

If he can deliver, they should tear up his contract and give a four year – $16 million deal to keep him around for the rest of his prime.

He loves Vancouver, we love him, and he will continue to improve as gains more experience in the league.

Second LSAPOTW – David Booth

David Booth continues to perform well in the second half of the season. With a pretty assist to set up the Canucks only goal against Montreal and a goal against the Coyotes, he is continuing to be one of the Canucks most reliable players. But his plus-minus is still on the wrong side of zero, and he hasn’t exactly been a defensive giant.

His offensive production is great, but it would be nice to see a littloe more on the other end.

He's got 20 goals and 24 assists this campaign

Third LSAPOTW – Henrik Sedin

He’s in this spot for the two assists he put up against the Coyotes, plus a generally strong effort. However, he’s been very average since the All-Star game, and if the Canucks want to contend for the cup, he needs to get back to form.

Overall, I haven’t been that impressed with Henrik Sedin, and it says a lot that hes the third star of the week.

Goal of the Week – NOT

Another week, and again no good goals. Oh but we let in another nine in two games. That’s fantasic. So in honor of our two awful losses, lets give the worst star of the week to: Roberto Luongo.

Another pair of awful performances. It’s not as though he’s got a lot of good will built up in this city.

Time to step it up or get used to spending time at the end of the bench.

Ok I found A Goal Of the Week For You (Burrows & Kesler vs. Phoenix)
