Re: Canuck News and Notes - 2018-2019

So I was chatting with some friends today about the Canucks. Nothing earth shattering, just a few tidbits. Players very excited about Quinn Hughes. Say he’s the real deal. Players very excited by a Pettersson, say he’s the real deal. Pouliot done for sure, players have no confidence in him. Gudbran...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

I didn’t miss any point. Canucks are among the slowest teams in the league. Boucher (or Leivo) is 26 and he can’t skate. I know he has a great shot but he’s pretty much a one trick pony at the NHL level. He’s a great AHL player however. There we go. Looks better now. Definitely more complete. I'm n...

Re: 2018-2019 Playoffs - Round 1

^^^defence and goaltending, Rikster^^^ from the nets out. Goaltending is pretty set. Draft Soderstrom. With Hughes here now and Woo, Juolevi and Tryamkin on the way. Good times to be had thanks to the Benning Plan! I'm leaning Soderstrom as well, RHD who can move the puck, play good D and in genera...

Re: 2018-2019 Playoffs - Round 1

Kudo's to the Blue Jackets.... The rumor was that ownership hired Torts in Vancouver against Gillis wishes, does what Torts has done since he left Vancouver mean that ownership knows hockey better than Gillis? :) Playoff hockey is as much about luck as it is skill.... Sucks that the Canucks had so ...

Re: 2018-2019 Playoffs - Round 1

Not to reign in your anti-gillis vitriolic rant-fest but he took the team to within a few luongo beach balls of a cup. Give the Players Agent a medal. Yippie Kay yay. 2nd best? What colour is that ribbon? I forget. Gotta be better than last best, which is what we've been over the past 4 years.........

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

I’m just not seeing the chips to get another first but if we are bringing back Edler and they are wanting to promote Juolevi then the left side is stacked with Edler, Hughes, Hutton and Juolevi. Tryamkin also is a left shot D-man as well as Sautner, Teves and Brisebios. Maybe Hutton is moved but at...

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

Fuck skyo newhook sounds damn good from that. Scoring a hattie while a guy who will go quite a bit higher only picks up the assists sounds good to me man Noooomsayin facts, in any case a top 10 pick typically is usually a superb NHL player so long as the scouts do their homework. But still kinda ho...

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

Yuck to Soderstrom Why is that? I like this kid a lot, very good skater, good puck handler, lots of hockey sense, plays tight D and plays in the SHL. To me he woul d be a great pick at #10, subject to who else is available that is. I'd go either LW (Zegras, Krebs, Boldy) or RHD (Soderstrom) at our ...

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

As for trading the pick - I don’t see Jimbo moving up, it’s just too expensive. I could see him trading a couple of Tanev, Hutton, Sutter, etc for some 2nds, 3rds or 4ths, but unless Jimbo wants to trade Tanev for a 2nd and then flip both is 2nds for a late 1st I doubt much will happen at the top e...

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

I wouldn’t trade Bo alone for the pick +1 Although I admit not knowing much about the draft prospects. I'm just totally averse to parting with Bo anytime soon. Ya I don't think I trade Bo for any of the picks this year, especially since I assume we'd have to include the 10th overall as well. 10th +...

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

NJD - Hughes NYR - Kakko Hawks - Turcotte (local kid) Lanche - Cozens (need centre, Jost busting) Kings - Podkozlin (need scoring) Wings - Byram (need D, tons of young forwards) Sabres - Boldy (need wingers, too many centres) Oilers - Krebs (local kid, can play wing) Ducks - Dach (need forwards, pe...

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

Canucks draft positions: 1st: 10th 2nd: 40th 3rd: 71st 4th: 102nd 5th: 133rd 6th: 156th, 164th, 183rd 7th: 195th 40th is an interesting spot - should be some good talent left. Lassi Thomson, Korczak, Honka as RHD. Grewe, Hoglander, Foote, Poulin as wingers. If we go C or W in the 1st I expect Jimbo...
