The Vancouver Canucks are back at Rogers Arena in preparation for the start of training camp.
It was an off-season of disappointment in change for the Vancouver Canucks after an early playoff ouster at the hands of the Flames and the trading of fan favourites Kevin Bieksa, Eddie Lack and Zack Kassian.
But despite the roster turn around in an improved Pacific Division, GM Jim Benning thinks this year’s team is superior to last year’s squad.
Coach Willie Desjardins was hobbled by off-season surgery, and won’t be in Prince George when training camp gets underway on Friday.
He may also not be ready for the first regular season game which goes Wednesday October 7th.
