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...

Now I feel like watching Infinity War.

I demand Jim Benning trade for Nick Ritchie, dudes a beast, put him with Horvat and Boeser.

Re: Playoffs

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?

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

^^^^^^ 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...

Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

Hughes is not 5’-10”. All you have to do is arm him in the ice against others to realize he’s no taller than Jordan Subban From watching these playoffs Im again reminded why some size is required on defence at the NHL level When the league was more tilted against small guys, Brian Rafalski listed (...

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

I guess the scary thing is the Oilers - Justin Schultz scenario, they overused him before he was ready, put way too much pressure on the kid, the young coaches ruined him and his confidence, then got dealt for a 3rd rounder and the Pens experienced coaches made him work from the bottom #6/#7 role, l...

Re: Playoffs

To put it simply, a successful team has quality forwards and dmen prospects, and if defense wins championships, how are you going to build a championship team if you always take forwards (bpa)? Via Trade - a hockey trade Sergachev - Drouin Jones - Johansen Myers - Kane All three trades involved a f...

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

Solid points overall, speaking of points that's Ben Hutton's bread and butter, now if Green just used Huts as a point producer in a run & gun style, used that way Huts is the type to have a breakout season points wise - he's at an age for that to happen.

Re: Playoffs

Sure sure - I just loved it that you say 1 thing and he clearly provided a response that you were clearly wrong and the Genius even disagrees with you. Sorry buddy - I do enjoy your trade ideas though. First of all reef, I never said that is their draft plan to be "clearly wrong", but it's my opini...
