Insight: The 26-year-old set career highs with 22 goals, 27 assists (49 points) and 159 SOG this season and could see more ice time this season. We like another 50-point season in 2014-15.
Radim Vrbata, RW10/3/2014 11:59:00 AM
Description: Winger Radim Vrbata signed a two-year contract with the Vancouver Canucks and should enjoy his time there on a line with Daniel and Henrik Sedin.
Insight: The 33-year-old Vrbata had 20 goals, 31 assists, 263 SOG and 21 PPP last season, so he was still a quality fantasy winger and is the first option to play with the twins. We're predicting an increase in scoring to 29 goals and 56 points for the upcoming season.
Henrik Sedin, C10/3/2014 11:55:00 AM
Description: Canucks center Henrik Sedin, like his brother, should bounce back in 2014-15. Not all the way to 2010-11 numbers, but still a fantasy-worthy asset.
Insight: Sedin missed time with a leg injury last season, but had played every game for the previous eight years. We are projecting 12 goals and 52 assists - solid numbers.
Daniel Sedin, LW10/3/2014 11:52:00 AM
Description: Vancouver left wing Daniel Sedin missed nine games last season and played hurt in other which explains his fall from 2012-13 to last season's 47-point production.
Insight: Entering his 14th season, Sedin's injury concerns and simply the effects of nearly 1,000 games is a worry, but we think he bounces back with a solid 28 goal, 32 assist season. No, it's not the 104 points he produced in 2010-11, but he's still a useful fantasy asset.
Radim Vrbata, RW7/2/2014 10:40:00 PM
Description: Radim Vrbata has signed a two-year contract with the Vancouver Canucks.
Insight: The 33-year-old Vrbata had 20 goals, 31 assists, 263 SOG and 21 PPP last season, so he was still a quality fantasy winger. His value will grow on the Canucks, especially if he's used on the top line with the Sedins.
Ryan Miller, G 7/2/2014 12:37:00 PM
Description: Goalie Ryan Miller signed a three-year, $18 million contract with the Canucks on Tuesday.
Insight: Eddie Lack had a 2.41 GAA, a .912 SV% and four shutouts as a rookie last year, but the Canucks decided to bring in the top goalie on the free agent market in Miller. Miller, a former Vezina Trophy winner, had a 2.64 GAA and a .918 SV% with the Sabres and Blues last season, but he played poorly in the final month of the regular season and the playoffs.
Daniel Sedin, LW4/14/2014 7:48:00 PM
Description: Vancouver left wing Daniel Sedin said he was fine after being examined in the hospital on Sunday night. SOURCE: Vancouver Sun
Insight: Sedin was carted off the ice on a stretcher in the season finale after getting hit into the boards by Calgary's Paul Byron. He said he should have no lasting effects from the hit.
Chris Higgins, LW4/13/2014 3:20:00 PM
Description: Vancouver winger Chris Higgins (illness) is questionable for the season finale Sunday against the Flames, according to nhl.com.
Insight: Higgins missed Saturday's game due to the illness. The veteran winger has 17 goals, 22 assists and 216 SOG in 78 games this season.
Jason Garrison, D4/12/2014 2:02:00 PM
Description: Vancouver defenseman Jason Garrison is questionable for Saturday's game against Edmonton due to a lower body injury.
Insight: Garrison has 32 points, 55 PIM, 179 SOG and 14 PPP in 79 games, but is pointless in his last 11 and shouldn't be in any fantasy lineups.
Alexander Edler, D4/6/2014 10:38:00 AM
Description: Even with a goal and an assist Saturday night against the Kings, Canucks D Alexander Edler has just 21 points in 59 games this season.
Insight: What's worse is that Edler, a former two-time 40-point scorer, has a -32 rating, one of the worst in the NHL.
Henrik Sedin, C4/5/2014 8:32:00 PM
Description: Canucks center Henrik Sedin (leg) will get back in the lineup Saturday against the Kings, according to the Vancouver Province.
Insight: Sedin missed the last four games with a leg injury. The 33-year-old has just 46 points this season, his least for a full NHL campaign since 2003-04.
Henrik Sedin, C4/1/2014 5:42:00 PM
Description: Canucks center Henrik Sedin (leg) will not play Tuesday against the Rangers.
Insight: Sedin will miss his fourth straight contest, but he was on the ice being worked out by skills coach Glenn Carnegie prior to Tuesday's morning skate, according to Elliott Pap of the Vancouver Sun.
Kevin Bieksa, D3/28/2014 5:30:00 PM
Description: Vancouver defenseman Kevin Bieksa injured his right ankle in a collision with Gabriel Landeskog on Thursday night, according to Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province.
Insight: The Canucks haven't announced if he will miss Saturday's game against the Ducks, but they already called up a defenseman from the AHL so he probably will. Bieksa has four goals, 20 assists, 102 PIM and 153 SOG in 70 games this season.
