    Here are my picks for all-time Canucks team of players who wore the original blue/green/white color uniforms from 1970-71 through 1977-78 (before switching to the hideous Halloween "V" unis). Preference is given to players with longevity over a good player who only played one or two seasons with the club. As always, feel free to correct or tweak my lines as my memory of these players is not that sharp since I rarely got to see this club back in the day.

    FORWARDS
    Andres Boudrias - Dennis Ververgaert - Don Lever
    Rosaire Paiement - Bobby Schmautz - John Gould
    Bobby Lalonde - Rick Blight - Ron Sedlbauer
    Orland Kurtenbach - Chris Oddleifson - Gerry O'Flaherty

    DEFENSE
    Jocelyn Guevremont - Harold Snepsts
    Bob Dailey - Dennis Kearns
    Dale Tallon - Barry Wilkins

    GOAL
    Gary Smith - Dunc Wilson

    I didn't have enough LW's so moved Gerry O'Flaherty over. Wasn't sure if Paiement should be on there as he barely played two seasons, could replace him with Garry Monahan.

    Swap Lever & Ververgaert, lever can play all 3 positions, Ververgaert is a RW.

    Good team though!

    Yeah, I think they only had two winning seasons in that era but always had a consistent batch of guys who could light the lamp. Seems defense and goaltending were their weak links.
