Re: 2018 NHL DRAFT - Who does JB take.

Well one must not forget there is an element of a crap shoot to drafting 18 year olds. From 2016 to the 2017 draft he goes from a questionable choice st 5th to quite possibly the best player in the 2017 class at 6th. Let’s hope this is the trajectory from 2017 and not a pattern of a questionable (Vi...

Re: 2018 NHL DRAFT - Who does JB take.

I think they’re trying to decide between Hughes and Wahlstrom. The first 6 is set in stone leaving us Hughes, Wahlstrom, Boqvist and Bouchard. There are concerns with Boqvist and Bouchard. Hearing the Canucks don’t like Bouchard. Flip a coin - it will be one of Hughes or Wahlstrom If Hughes and Dobs...

Re: 2018 NHL DRAFT - Who does JB take.

My Spidey sense tells me we are drafting Hughes

Dobson will be gone and the Canuck brass are not high on Bouchard or Boqvist

Buffalo - Dahlin
Carolina - Svechnikov
Montreal - Kotkaniemi
Ottawa - Zadina
Arizona - Tkachuk
Detroit - Dobson
Vancouver - Hughes

Apparently Tampa’s offer for Tanev is garbage. Nobody’s. Not even one of their top prospects. If that’s the case keep him.

Re: 2018 NHL DRAFT - Who does JB take.

Apparently the insiders are saying Dobson will be gone by the time our 7th pick comes up. I tend to agree.

Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

Apparently the Canuck brass were not impressed with Hughes after their sit down interview/meet with him at the combine. Curious as to why?

Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

Yeah the Canucks are a lottery team in 2019. With the 2019 draft being razor thin on defence at the top end you pick a D-man in 2018 and a forward in 2019

Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

Wahlstrom is a unique study. Could end up being the best forward after Svechnikov in this class

Tanev for Ryan O’Reilly

Then O’Reily to Montreal for their 3rd overall

Canucks pick Tkachuk at 3
Canucks pick Dobson at 7

Rebuild complete

Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

The Habs are an interesting watch. Their centre position is quite putrid especially after trading sometimes centre - Galchenyuk. That leaves them with sometime centre - Drouin whom isn’t truly a natural centre since he’s played mostly on the wing. The other centre is Danault. I don’t think you can f...

Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

As long as Elmer doesn’t trade any picks or any of Brock, Bo or Elias I am all good. I’d like to see him make a play for a good young d man, doesnt matter which side he plays. Just not sure he has the pieces to land anyone significant. Barring that I’m all for moving all of Hutton, Granlund and Bae...

Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

Bouchard is in that Garrison/Aucoin/Griffin Reinhart category of defencemen. He will struggle with the pace of the NHL with his slow motor, average skating and average edge work Will struggle transitioning the puck out at speed with the fast NHL dump and chase forecheck. People need to also consider...
