    Defence - Alexei Zhitnik

    The Canuck's second leading scorer with 36 points, Zhitnik is fourth among western conference defencemen in points. This despite playing without player with a scoring rating over 71. The Canucks are only .1% away from the league lead in powerplay percentage, and Zhitnik quarterbacks it. He has undoutedly been the club's MVP this season.

    Coach - Claude Julien

    Two years ago the Canucks had the coach at the all-star game because a young, under-talented roster was competing for a playoff spot. Once again, this is the case this season. The Canucks have been between 8th and 10th in the standings for as long as anyone can remember. Furthermore, the club has the best special teams in the entire league. Despite the lack of anything closely resembling a first line forward, the club almost leads the league in powerplay percentage, and has led in penalty killing percentage for nearly the entire season.
