Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

Dobson or Boqvist would be fine by me. Now watch both of them get picked before #7 If both get picked before #7, likely means that Wahlstrom will be available. That would be fine by me as well. I guess it would get interesting if the top names on the Canucks list get snapped up prior to #7, and the...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 17-18 Sponsored by SKYO

Now that he has his brood (wife & 4 kids), rooted in Van., No-way he's going anywhere for two more seasons. After that, he gives a list of 15 teams he won't go to. I wonder why I have this vexatious feeling his play strikingly improves over two years. Oh well, doesn't matter, I understand Jim Benni...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 17-18 Sponsored by SKYO

Can we stop with the Karlsson trade ideas? Given the state of the team, this is the last kind of deal Benning should make. The net benefit he would provide considering what Benning would have to give up would possibly get the team to the playoffs, but he wouldn’t make them a contender. By the time t...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Habs sign Domi to a 2 year, 6.3 million dollar contract. Cap 3.15 per. Given his fall off the past two seasons, his reported attitude/behavioural issues, his total lack of defence, I'd say Domi hit a home run. Huge overpayment at this point in his career. Desperation to sell the deal? Still scratch...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

The problem will be, the games in the KHL are not as intense and most assuredly not as hard hitting. Realize that's a generalization but I still think when he returns, he will again be taken back. Thing is, he'll be 3 years older. Hard-hitting hockey doesn't really affect Tryamkin. The bodychecks j...

Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

For the Canuck’s pick (admittedly using positional need to break some ties between some pretty evenly ranked talents), I’m thinking Dobson = Boqvist > Tkachuk > Wahlstrom > Hughes > Bouchard > Kotkaniemi I'd switch Wahlstrom and Tkachuk. Benning and Linden like their forwards with lethal shots. I t...

Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

With Bouchard, it’s a question of whether management is convinced his skating issues are fixable with some work on technique. Speed is one thing, but his edge work apparently needs improvement as well. If he fixes his skating, a pretty good chance he reaches his ceiling and sooner than the others on...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 17-18 Sponsored by SKYO

I’m just looking at a way to show that Blob can’t be right. So it sounds like Montreal may trade down for a centre, likely the Fin around the 7th pick, and Vancouver wants more picks. And perhaps NYI would want to move up in the draft. Here’s a trade that popped into my head. Islanders trade their ...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Is Mike Hoffman about to get traded out of Ottawa because his old lady is nuts? If the allegations are true, who in their right mind would bring that family into their organization? Dorian "Hey, you want Hoffman, give us a 2nd for him" GM "Really? A 2nd? That's it? What's the catch?" Dorian "You al...

Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

Yeah unless Zadina or Tkachuk falls, take a D man. There are some nice players projected to go late first round and early in the second as well. Samuelsson and Drury come to mind. Samuelsson would be a nice addition to the defence pipeline, or McIsaac or Miller. Maybe one of the Timra forwards (Olo...

Noticed Benning say the staff should be expecting more picks.
That’ll make some here happy.
He said he was going to "try". I would have been surprised if he had said otherwise.

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 17-18 Sponsored by SKYO

I would try to come up with a package that doesn't involve the 7th OA pick. If it's the 7th or no deal, then I'd rather Benning keep his pick. Really, Pettersson, Boeser and Horvat are the only untouchables on the team. If management is bullish on Dipietro, perhaps Benning can offer Demko as the lyn...

Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

I can’t say I’d be disappointed with Bouchard. I just think the London Knight connection - Horvat and Juolevi will be the deciding factor for Benning. Who I want? The Canucks lack an element of super skilled and fast puck carriers on the team and Hughes regardless of his size hits all the marks but...
