2005-06 Results

Hockey is back! After the NHL cancelled the 2004-05 season, it was just nice to be back at the rink. The Canucks looked to be in solid shape, with rookie GM Dave Nonis retaining most of the team's core players. Markus Naslund, Todd Bertuzzi, Brendan Morrison and the Sedin twins would be counted on to provide offense. Mattias Ohlund, Nolan Baumgartner, Sami Salo and Ed Jovanovski would anchor the defense in front of Dan Cloutier and Alex Auld.

The season started out extremely well with the Canucks recording 17 points in their first ten games. One of those points came during a shootout loss -- one of many rule changes brought in by the league. As the season progressed, the Canucks fell further away from first place in their division. One bright spot was the addition of Anson Carter whose style of play meshed well with the Sedin twins. Carter would eventually finish with 33 goals, best on the team.

The Canucks finished out of the playoffs, despite recording 92 points. The disappointing showing cost Marc Crawford his coaching job in Vancouver.
