Guts: 101 points. Third in the West. A rare fast start by Luongo sets the pace for a team that is far deeper at all positions than at any other time in its history.
Hosea: 109 points. Second in the West. Barring major injuries, the Canucks will crack 50 wins and the team focus shifts from just winning division title to claiming conference title.
Guts: Can't underestimate how big the Olympic starter motivation will be. Faster start for Lu.
Hosea: It's time for him to get his name on that Vezina trophy. This is the year.
Hosea: The former Calder winner will come in handy right before the playoffs to give Luongo some rest.
Guts: Let's hope the team doesn't play tentative in front of this backup.
Guts: Addition of Ehrhoff and Schneider means he returns to his nasty role.
Hosea: Not surprised if he leads the D in points again, but will still hear trade rumours closer to deadline.
Hosea: Career highs are in store for this young Swede and the future of Vancouver's blueline.
Guts: Looking for him to push the 15-goal and 50-point marks this season.
Guts: Plenty of highs on offence along with a few, "What the hell was that pass?" moments.
Hosea: Good puck mover, but he can't be a defensive liability, especially with AV as coach.
Guts: Hey, look, kids, it's Willie Mitchell at half the price.
Hosea: And at half the effectiveness.
Guts: Considering the new talent on the D, I don't want to see Willie cross centre ice this season.
Hosea: Shutdown ace will have more "pucks stopped on goal line" than "goals for".
Guts: Can't underestimate how important his toughness is on the new offensive-minded D.
Hosea: Odd man out when the top six is healthy. Here's hoping he gets at least one goal this regular season.
Hosea: Was a write-off after acquisitions but he held his own in preseason. Solid, not spectacular.
Guts: First to be sent down when Schneider returns, first to get the call when Salo gets injured.
Hosea: Crucial member on defensive unit but [insert injury joke].
Guts: Once pulled a groin attempting to clear waivers. Still, he's the Canucks' best on the blue line.
Guts: Is capable of putting up good numbers. Let's hope games played is one of them.
Hosea: Getting pucks through with his huge point shot will take pressure off Salo and improve PP.
Hosea: Will get more goals and points but nothing drastic. Losing weight doesn't help one finish.
Guts: Could you please explain that concept to my wife? Bernier joins 20-goal club.
Guts: If he plays on the second line, look for his goal production to drop off.
Hosea: Raised the bar for himself in both scoring and trash talking. Can't wait for his Patrick Kane material.
Hosea: Easy scapegoat for fans, but Demitra, when healthy, does put up points.
Guts: Last year's numbers were better than most think. Still, it's his last season as a Canuck.
Guts: Sometimes longshots do come in. Here's hoping this Glass is half full.
Hosea: Roster spot won't last long but he's a good energy depth player when injuries occur.
Guts: Will play sparingly but will add a enthusiastic burst of energy.
Hosea: With that two-way contract, he'll lead the team in points ... Air Miles points.
Hosea: This enforcer does what he gets paid to do. Good enough.
Guts: Rypien's speed will keep Hordy upstairs eating popcorn half the year.
Guts: This team's version of Mariano Rivera.
Hosea: I was thinking more along the lines of John McClane, minus the weapons.
Guts: Has enjoyed a meteoric rise on this team. Now it's time to showcase that offence.
Hosea: With permanent second-line duty, two-way man Kesler will reach 30-plus goals and 70-plus points.
Guts: Both coach and GM expect him to join the 20-goal club. So do I.
Hosea: Don't let a good preseason fool you. It was the same ol' story last year.
Guts: If he stays healthy, we might just see why AV's been so high on him.
Hosea: One energy shift from him could change momentum in Vancouver's favour.
Hosea: More offensive role will give him career highs. Will lead team in SOG.
Guts: Hopefully his love of shooting the puck will rub off on his teammates.
Guts: In the prime of his career. Time to get back to the 30-goal level and beyond.
Hosea: You heard it here first: He'll finish top five in the NHL in goals.
Hosea: Big year from Daniel means a big year for Henrik, or is it the other way around?
Guts: Maybe the best Canuck centre of all time. And now he's sniping?!
Guts: A Russian with some serious finish. Full season equals Calder consideration.
Hosea: Wow, Calder consideration? You must be thinking of the Calder Cup. Expectations are too high for the rookie.
Guts: Look for him to earn that long-term deal GM Mike Gillis wants to give him. Career year for this guy.
Hosea: My money's on Wellwood to pull a Burrows-Kesler. He has to stay consistent throughout the season though.
