Re: 2018 NHL DRAFT - Who does JB take.

Like Lockwood, Woo is going to have to learn to pick his spots more when going for the hits. Reckless abandon results in unnecessary injuries. Try reading the scouting reports, he isn’t reckless abandon like Virtanen and Dumba were in junior. He’s always on the right side of the puck and is very sm...

Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

Just missed on Zadina, then went for an LSD trip (Left Smurf D).

WTF.

Here's hoping Benning & Co know lots about Hughes commitment (college/NHL), sturdiness, & the direction of NHL officiating (will crushing checks on small guys be called). A risky move this is.

Re: 2018 NHL DRAFT - Who does JB take.

I still think we'd be lucky to get Dobson, but the best case (inside pundits draft ranges) is even better for the Canucks.

Hoping for the best: (1) Filip Zadina 6-0 RW; (2) Alexander Alexeyev 6-4 LD; (3) Curtis Douglas 6-9 C.

Positional needs be damned, take the best talent available.

I like Boucher’s shot but honestly he has t shown much. To me Goldobin has more upside.
Agreed.

Boucher hasn't been able to take the next step & develop the ability to get that shot on target when it counts, & from where it counts.

Re: Canucks Young Guns

We don't know that
Tanev will be traded or injured
in a year, or that
Juolevi will be 100% one month from now
..

Only that some peculiar condition results in this much exaggeration.

Re: Canucks Young Guns

No comments about he would buy out his final year, in fact his agent seems to suggest he will play the contract out. But never say never. It would be good to see the Russian bear back. Recall Martin Hanzel's reaction (6'-6, 226lb, noted Canuck injurer) after he bounced off the bear. Even one of the...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Tryamkin keeps saying he wants to come back! It's been reported that a KHL player can buy out his contract by paying 2/3 of the rest of his contract to his team. A rich enough contract offer from the Canucks for Tryamkin & his KHL team might get him back before the KHL contract expires. A three way...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2017-2018

Canucks sign Pettersson.

Training camp is going to be interesting.
