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: 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: Playoffs

Tom Wilson, TBL Paquette etc showing why you need some big gritty dudes with the tangibles to fight out a series, something analytics types wish they can measure in their stats, but never will. Even Jets and Vegas (Reaves) have some heavy hitters to help their depth and skill guys out. Meanwhile th...

Re: Playoffs

Sbisa being on the ice with under 5 to play holding on to a 1-goal lead in a game that will send his team to the SCF. Gallant gave an interview a short while ago and was asked about making players accountable. His response was somewhere along the lines of he doesn't believe in that. He said when you...

Re: Playoffs

Gotta give Gallant massive props. What a job he's done. I don't think there is another coach that could have gotten this kind of a result with the same roster. He did amazing work with a roster in FLA they didn't really have any elite players and now has a system in place with 100% buy in from him p...

Re: WC 2018

The things I will take away from the world championship. 1. When Horvat was named player of the game he looked classy and shook hands warmly with the Swiss player of the game. When Nilsson was named for the Swiss and went towards Kane to shake hands, Kane was all pouty and skated away without shaki...

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

Money, Chance to Win, and Lifestyle . He can have 2/3 here, but he can have 3/3 staying put in San Jose. Not if he and his agent see your Canucks doing more winning over the life of the contract than your Sharks. Sure, it's possible Kane and his agent see us as a competitive playoff team going deep...

Re: Playoffs

I love that the Sharks are out. Now Vegas can come back to earth and recognize their place in the grand scheme of things. An expansion team. Shhshshsh The way I see it, one team from the West is going to have a chance to win their first Cup before the canucks do. I’d rather it be Winnipeg, but won’...

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

To get the first, my guess is 7th Boeser Demko That might not even be enough, and it's too much already. There are only a handful of dmen hyped like Dahlin. Generational like what McDavid is as a forward but on D. It's near impossible to find those players via trade or free agency. Think of it this...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

DiPietro wins OHL goalie of the year.

Gaudette
Petersson
Dahlen
Palmu
Dipietro

^ All win a major award in their respective leagues and Boeser a finalist for the Calder after missing 20 games (possibly a strong candidate to win had he played out the year)
