Re: When will the Canucks Next make the playoffs

I see this upcoming season as one where the youngsters grow to take the lead now that the twins are gone, and lay the foundation to compete for the playoffs - but fall short. EP, Juolevi and, hopefully, Hughes will get their feet wet. I fully anticipate the likes of Dahlen and Gaudette to at least g...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

I’ll be interested to see how Palmu and Gadjovich do in camp just to see how they stack up with the regulars. I don’t see them getting a sniff till next year at least, but do think they’ll play in Vancouver at some point. Utica should be fun to watch this year.

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 18-19 Sponsored by SKYO

Our 1st, Juolevi and Gaudette for Karlsson… yeahno. Two years from now with maybe Rathbone instead of Gaudette and Juolevi and our 2023 1st rounder and I would see some logic in such a deal. Considering where this roster is at in its life cycle, dealing for Karlsson now is premature. I say no to Kar...

Re: What to do with Hughes

I’m for making room for him on the big league roster. My concern with sending him back to NCAA is that he may plateau in his development. It would be good for him to spend the extra time in the gym, but I’m sure Boeser and Gaudette would agree that it’s a significant leap in caliber of play going to...

Re: the paranoia of the canuck fanbase

More posters, the merrier. Not buying the sock conspiracy theories being bandied about by some around here. Welcome!

I don’t have the highest expectations for this upcoming season, I’m willing to bet the next draft will be the last one where Benning will be wondering about his lottery odds.

Re: The Official CC "All Thing Leaves" thread

Using offer sheets to put teams in cap hell is the most commonly-conceived rationale, and it does make sense. However, offer-sheeting players to pry them out may be just as viable when you’re talking about a player like Matthews. Yeah, Lou would give up a handful of 1st round picks, but in that case...

Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

Beagle’s term is a bit long, but cap hit is what you pay for at this time of year. He looks like your prototypical bottom-six checking centre. Good signing. I wonder if his performance next season may make Sutter expendable? If Roussel provides 70% of what Dorsett gave, then chalk it up in the win c...

An interesting article from Canucks Army: https://canucksarmy.com/2018/06/27/analyzing-four-centres-the-canucks-could-target/ Wonder what it would take to pry Reinhart out of Buffalo. Given the stock they have at center in their organization, the price would be high but not exorbitant. Tanev and Ju...

Re: Free Agency 2018 & Everything Related

I wonder if Vanek would want to come back for another season? I’m pretty sure he knew he was going to be trade deadline bait when he signed here last summer, so I don’t think there were any sour feelings when he was traded. Numerous reports of his value in the room - hell, even Green acknowledged th...

Re: Canucks Special Teams

All I want to see is Hughes on the point, Pettersson centering the middle with Boeser in his office to blast in the one timers. Sprinkle in some Horvat, Dahlen, Virtanen, Goldy, Eriksson etc as seen fit. I can imagine a 1-2-2 formation with Hughes at the blue line, EP and Boeser at the half-boards/...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 18-19 Sponsored by SKYO

Back on Trades - Minnesota willing to deal Niederreiter / Coyle / Brodin / Dumba if a team takes on Tyler Ennis A poor version of Karlsson/Ryan combo. I can see Minnesota being a much more logical trade partner than Ottawa. Dumba and Coyle wouldn’t look bad on Vancouver’s roster, depending on the p...

Projects? So you know the endgame already?

Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

Did Benning trade his 6th pick? Can’t see the pick on the SN tracker.
