We just keep on a-rollin' through our summer Pacific division preview series, and this week's takes us to Vancouver. The Canucks have freed themselves of John Tortorella, and The Trevor Linden Era is offically underway. Will the Canucks improve on a disappointing 83-point campaign that saw them miss the playoffs for the first time since 2007-08? Their 52.2% Fenwick Close last year was actually up from their 51.9% in 2012-13, indicating a team that perhaps deserved a better fate. But now the Canucks move forward without Ryan Kesler, who was traded to Anaheim for a disappointing return. Are the Canucks still a playoff team? We'll be joined by Dimitri Filipovic (@DimFilipovic) of the Sporting News and Canucks Army to discuss the Canucks' strange year and where he expects them to be moving forward.
