Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

Noah Dobson is up to 5 points 2g, 3a in 2 Memorial Cup games, it's unfortunate the London Knights team is in rebuild mode in Bouchard's draft year, anyways ONE of Boqvist, Bouchard or Dobson will be available for the Canucks to pick at #7. :thumbs: IF none are available at #7 then that means Tkachuk...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

All the more reason to swing for the fences and bring in Erik Karlsson Only if it doesnt require gutting the franchise. How much is too much? Theyll want a 1st, a blue chip prospect and a roster player at the absolute minimum. Thats a gut punch I think the Canucks have to acquire Erik Karlsson just...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Sweden becoming World Champions for the second consecutive year also means that apart from winning the Swedish championship, winning the scoring title, setting a new all time record for points scored by a junior in the SHL, being named rookie of the year, regular season MVP, best forward and playof...

Re: Playoffs

They should have waited till Seattle was onboard and have the typical two team expansion draft , imagine ripping that Vegas team in half with half their star players in Seattle. Vegas Karlsson Smith Neal Tuch Bellemare Carpenter Hyka Carrier Miller Theodore Sbisa McNabb Subban Seattle Marchessault P...

Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

I wonder with tkachuk committing to another year of ncaa if his stock will drop some. I also wonder if he’d be a kid that goes right to free agency to play with his brother (coming from a well off family where money might not be the biggest motivator). Papa Keith said no decision has been made yet;...

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

The Sedins largely avoided injuries because they stayed in great shape and had GREAT on ice awareness. Everything they could control, they did. They didn't get blindsided much because they were never blind. They didn't throw their bodies around much (though they went to dirty places) -- they aren't...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Pettersson should be fine, Patrick Kane started his NHL career at 18 turned 19 in Nov 2007.

Pettersson will start at 19 turning 20 in Nov.18', exactly the same age Nicklas Backstrom started his career 19yrs old->20yrs old in Nov in 2007.

Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

Dahlin, Svechnikov, Tkachuk, Zadina and Hughes are guaranteed gonzo by the time we are picking the 7th pick. Who is that last prospect who will go top 6 who won’t be available to us? IMO it’s beteeen Bouchard, Wahlstrom and Boqvist who go top 6. I’m going with Bouchard. The Canucks will be deciding...

Re: The Rebuild...

Eriksson is what he is, he has the same gentleman style game as the twins, but he's a different style of point producer, he has a solid 200ft game, his metrics say he makes his linemates better, he's as reliable as they come, but how he gets his points is by being around the net and being an opportu...

Re: The Rebuild...

To reiterate on the Sedins retiring, I think the Canucks will be going through a huge culture change in how the team plays and its new swagger with the new young leaders at the helm. The Sedins represented the classy gentleman lifestyle, high IQ players who didn't engage in fighting and shied away f...

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

So, the full 7 years you referred to earlier in this thread. Two questions, then: Does that seem to you like a genius-level performance? and If the Canucks are not contenders by 2020/2021, does that indicate to you that they need someone else to manage the re-build? 7 years seems to be a good healt...

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

Didn't you agree the other day that the playoffs are a possibility next season? :? Not impossible but difficult, the great unknown is how the team responds to not having the Sedins there, notably not taking the lions share of all the offensive zone minutes and their impeccable powerplay skills etc ...
