Vancouver led the Western Conference in scoring last season and had the best overall record in the NHL, but a first round loss to the LA Kings was just the latest post-season heartbreak for the Canucks.
While most experts think the team should add a couple physical back-line players, the latest rumor from the Vancouver Sun has the team showing interest in veteran center Jason Arnott.
The 37-year-old was the first round pick of the Edmonton Oilers back in 1993 and has followed that up with a terrific career, including a Stanley Cup title back in 2000. The Canucks are looking for a center to lead the team's third line and are hoping that the veteran influence of Arnott will help the team forget last season and give the team another shot at winning a championship.
With 34 total points last year with the St Louis Blues and over 900 points in his NHL career, the 6'4" 220 pound veteran is likely to sign somewhere in the near future and it makes sense for him and the Canucks to come together for the upcoming hockey season.
Fans of the Canucks have suffered through some tough playoff losses, but adding another veteran scorer and a player that has won a title, could make this the year Vancouver finally breaks through and wins that cup.
