Canucks will be better after additions, but impossible to say how much
Iain MacIntyre
Factoring in the free-agency additions and the return of a healthy Elias Pettersson, the Canucks are going to be deeper, faster, and more dangerous up front next season. But the changes on defence leave more questions to be answered.
