Our Picks: The weekly Canucks three stars – March 3rd

The Canucks three stars

Big game tonight versus the Buffalo Sabres. Let’s get you ready with the past week’s Canucks 3 stars.

FIRST STAR: Corey Schneider

Cory Schneider was the first star in the Canucks game against New Jersey, where he made 30 saves and helped the Canucks win against one of the hottest teams in he second half of the seasons so far.

Against Phoenix he made 34 saves and would have been the player of the game if not for the phenomenal performance of Mike Smith.

In an ideal world, Schneider would help the Canucks to a Stanley Cup and then leave as a RFA in the summer, allowing the Canucks to earn a few draft picks and giving him the chance to be a starting goalie for another team.

He’s earned it, and the Canucks shouldn’t keep him around as a back up any longer after this year.

SECOND STAR: Cody Hodgson

In honor of the season he had. He’s a natural goal scorer, a hard worker, and has a good attitude.

There is no doubt in my mind that he will be a great contributor to the Sabres or any other team that he signs with during his career. If the Canucks don’t win a Cup in the next few seasons, the words “Cam Neely” might come into play, and then people will lose their jobs.

Cody Hodgson

So long Coho. You'll be missed.

I hope he’s a star, but I’ll be bitter if he is. So long Cody Hodgson

THIRD STAR: Zack Kassian

For the potential he holds. No pressure, but his standing in Canuck eyes is totally dependent on whether or not he lifts a cup while wearing their uniform. It’s not fair and its not right, but its the truth. Right Zack Kassian?

But the upside is big. HUGE. Much like Kassian.

He’s big, he skates well, and he’s not afraid to fight.

Alongside a few talented Canucks forwards, he might even have an impact on the score sheet. And he looked good in the first game against St. Louis.

There is a lot to look forward to in the next few months.

Goal of the Week

A beautiful snipe by a guy who hasn’t scored as much this year. We need more goals like this from Ryan Kesler!

Nice move! Bang Bang Bang Bang, Vamanos Vamanos!
