WHISTLER, B.C. - The Vancouver Canucks know a return to the playoffs will largely hinge on rediscovering their mojo with the man advantage. The club had the NHLs top power play when they went to the Stanley Cup final in 2011, but that unit with mostly the same cast plummeted all the way to 26th last season. That stinging lack of success proved fatal for a team that scored the third fewest goals in the league overall, and was a big part of why Vancouver missed the post-season for the first time in six years. However with some new faces — and more importantly new ideas — the Canucks are confident they can get that critical element of their game back on track. "In this league you win by having great special teams. If you look at the best teams on the power play, theyre the ones making the playoffs," said captain Henrik Sedin. "It was impossible for us to make the playoffs with the power play we had last year." New head coach Willie Desjardins said one key will be to have two units going instead of leaning on Daniel and Henrik Sedin, as was the case under John Tortorella last season. "I just dont like (having) guys on the ice when theyre tired. I dont think thats fair to them and I dont think they get the best results," Desjardins said. "Last year the Sedin unit had a good year, it was just that there was nothing off the other unit. For us to be good we need both units. "I think the Sedins get rested more and then when theyre out there, theyre more effective." A big part of any team success in 2014-15 for the Canucks will probably come down to how Radim Vrbata and Nick Bonino fit in on the power play. Vrbata signed with Vancouver in the off-season after recording 10 goals and 11 assists on the man advantage with the Phoenix Coyotes last season, while Bonino — who arrived from Anaheim in the Ryan Kesler trade — finished with seven goals and 13 assists playing 5-on-4 with the Ducks. Judging by how things have gone at training camp ahead of Tuesdays split-squad games against the San Jose Sharks, it looks like Vrbata will start on the first line and first power-play unit with the Sedins. "(Vrbatas) got tremendous hands, great shot, great finisher and he can make plays," said Henrik Sedin. "I just have a good feeling about our power play this year." Vancouver bottomed out on the man advantage in Tortorellas only season behind the bench, but the slide actually started in the lockout-shortened 2013 campaign when it fell to 22nd under Alain Vigneault. "We saw some clips from last year and it didnt look like a bad power play to me," said Vrbata. "Theres lots of skill and smart guys who can play." While the Canucks were abysmal playing up a man last season, the penalty kill also faded late to finish ninth after being at or near the top of the league for long stretches. "Our power play was not good enough," said Henrik Sedin. "Our PK was not good enough and we lost ourselves there in January. We couldnt get it back and that was tough." Desjardins is a big believer in players that have had success in the past, and has faith this group can find a way to break through with the man advantage in situations it couldnt last year. "The first unit for sure is good, real good," he said. "Then you have Bonino, you have (Alexandre) Burrows, thats been a scorer in the past ... you have lots of guys who have done it, so why cant they do it this year? They can put up some numbers." Henrik Sedin said with all the video in todays game that its critical for power plays to be unpredictable. "The other teams spend so many hours watching your power play and penalty kill and everything," he said. "You have to have a foundation where you start, but then need to build from there." Veteran assistant coach Perry Pearn will work with a power play that has defencemen Kevin Bieksa, Dan Hamhuis and Alexander Edler, among others, vying to man the points. Like his captain, Desjardins hopes the Canucks will be able to provide more varied setups after becoming a little too predictable in recent years. "Weve talked about a lot of different situations. Perrys had a lot of experience and is a real smart guy," he said. "Hes good with the power play, but I think there will be a couple of different looks. "At the same time, this power play has been real good in the past." Colts Jerseys Outlet . They signed their first kicker.

He was 45. Vilanova, who has battled a recurring tumour in a saliva gland, was admitted to a local hospital in Barcelona last week. He reportedly had emergency surgery on Thursday. "It is with sadness that Barcelona must announce that Francesc Tito Vilanova has died today at the age of 45," Barcelona said in a statement on its website. "The death of our former coach occurred this afternoon when he could not overcome this disease which he had battled since 2011." Vilanovas death prompted an outpouring of condolences from players and coaches across Europe. Barcelona star Lionel Messi posted a photograph of himself with Vilanova on his Facebook page with the message: "We will always remember you. All my sympathy goes to Titos family." Former Barcelona defender Eric Abidal, who recovered from liver cancer and a liver transplant to help hoist the 2012-13 league trophy with Vilanova, wrote on Twitter: "For everything we went through together, I will always remember you, my friend. Thanks for fighting." Spains royal family and Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy also sent telegrams to Vilanovas family and Barcelona, according to the Europa Press news agency. Vilanova first became ill in November 2011, while still an assistant to Guardiola, and took a leave of absence after undergoing surgery. The soft-spoken Vilanova returned and took over from Guardiola the next season, when he led Barcelona to the Spanish league title with a record-tying 100 points. Vilanova had a second tumour removed in December 2012 and travelled to New York several times during the season to receive further treatment before returning to the sidelines. In April 2013, Vilanova said he felt fine and "had never thought about quitting." He finished the season before suddenly being forced to resign following a relapse in July. As an assistant, Vilanova hellped Guardiola propel Barcelona into its most successful period and transform a team led by Messi into the worlds best.dddddddddddd. With a team that also included several of the players that led Spain to the World Cup title in 2010, Barcelona won 14 of a possible 19 major trophies from 2008-12 under Guardiola before adding the league title with Vilanova in 2013. Despite the impressive league display, Vilanova was unable to win another Champions League title last season. Barcelona lost to eventual champion Bayern Munich 7-0 on aggregate in the semifinals, one of its most humbling results of the last decade. As Guardiolas assistant, Vilanova provided the tactical know-how that helped the coach build one of the best teams in the history of the sport — winning two Champions League titles in its impressive haul. Vilanova will also be remembered for his role in a brawl in the 2010 Spanish Super Cup won by Barcelona, when Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho poked him in the eye. Mourinho, who is now at Chelsea, also sent his condolences "at this most difficult time." "Tito Vilanovas passing is a sad day for football, for Barcelona and most importantly for his family and friends," Mourinho said. Born in the Catalan village of Bellcaire dEmporda, Vilanova began his career as a player at Barcelonas training academy from 1984-89 but never made it to the first team. Instead, he went on to play for clubs such as Celta Vigo and Mallorca before his career was cut short by a serious knee injury. Vilanova then went into coaching and got a job in Barcelonas youth system, tutoring current players Gerard Pique, Cesc Fabregas and Messi. Vilanova left to work as sport director at third-division club Terrassa before returning to Barcelona to take over the clubs "Barca B" feeder team. His funeral will be on Monday at Barcelonas cathedral. Vilanova is survived by his wife, Montse Chaure, and two children. His son Adrian is currently in Barcelonas youth academy.
