lol facts hdubz. :thumbs: Noah Dobson seems to be tearing it up at the Memorial Cup.

Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

I might take Wahlstrom over Tkachuk. Rebuilding a top line with offensive potential like thisnkid is exactly what needs to happen. Tkachuk plodding the wing < Wahlstrom at center ice Fucking hell hey: Horvat, Boeser, Pettersson, Wahlstrom, Dahlen, Virtanen, Goldobin, Kole Lind, Gadjovich....LOL tha...

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

SKYO, I pity your team when they face mine, but I’ll still cheer for them, as has been my habit for the last few years. Hey, at least the Canucks will get a good shot at Hughes next year which seems to be your goal based on your team construction, but I’ll still be thinking they could have made the...

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

I'm telling ya, just listen to the trade master armchair gm of all time. :lol: 1) Hutton + Baertschi for Ritchie. 2) Granlund + Pouliot + Nilsson for a 2nd + 3rd. RITCHIE - HORVAT - BOESER GOLDOBIN - GAGNER - VIRTANEN DAHLEN - PETTERSSON - ERIKSSON LEIPSIC - SUTTER - GAUDETTE EDLER - STECHER MDZ - T...

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

Now I feel like watching Infinity War. I demand Jim Benning trade for Nick Ritchie, dudes a beast, put him with Horvat and Boeser. Ritchie would be nice. I was kind of hoping we'd take him in that Virtanen year. Would Hutty + a pick do it? :P Hutton + Baertschi seems like a good swap to me. The Duc...

Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

I feel like the darkhorses this top 15 draft is Jesperi Kotkaniemi - a big talented center with two-way capabilities is hard to find and winger Vitali Kravtsov (http://www.mynhldraft.com/2018/NHL-Draft-Profiles/Vitali-Kravtsov) superb skills but likely have to wait some years after his KHL contract ...

Re: Playoffs

Well at least Nylander hasn't had a superb playoffs the past two years and Ehlers was totally invisible plus was held goalless in the Jets long trip to the semi's. I'd really love to see Virtanen in the playoffs, his dodge ram style power to the net capabilities should be an effective threat to help...

Re: Puck Possession for EP

For Pettersson it's just being smart like the Sedins, being really aware of where everyone is with 360 vision, positionally smart, don't be flying into danger zones, learn to make plays to get defenders off you at the opportune time, don't stay around the net/crease too long as that's where the 'cre...

And what are you going to say IF Juolevi becomes a solid top 4 to an eventual top 2 dman? Like a Määttä or Lindholm?

^^^^^^ And maybe, just maybe, that fire, that piss and vinegar was exactly what Green was trying to uncover. Could we see a pumped up ready to rumble defensive beast out of Hutton come this fall? That would be awesome if that came to fruition! -- ICYMI Elliotte thinking Hanifin is in the Canucks ta...

Re: Playoffs

And you don't get a RyJo if you don't pick Jones at 5th overall. Or you don't get Jones if you don't pick Johansen 4th overall 3 years before Jones hit the draft floor. Or you know, stay with me now, hear me out and I know this sounds crazy but how about the team just drafts and develop dmen like w...

Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

Benning: "I think you can run into problems when you make a pick based on positional needs. I think we should take the best player available.

But center-icemen & defensemen retain their value so if it comes between a winger or a centermen or a defensemen, we'll look positionally"

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

Canucks should 'Cody Hodgson' Ben Hutton and give him pure offensive zone minutes like Boston does with Krug. Get Hutton's points way up, then trade him for a power winger, just when everyone is falling in love with his game. If that works, why trade him, cuz that is a role we need filled. Also, th...
