Re: The 2017 NHL Entry Draft

I don't think I would trade Tanev for first over all, I would want more. I think Sbisa is worth a first on his own.I agree I wouldn't offer much to sweeten the pot to move up. This draft is too volatile, there is a good chance that the best player of the draft may be taken in the second or third rou...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2016/17

If Tanev goes to Dallas, I would be looking for 3rd overall this year plus a prospect, if they want to throw in Niemi for a cap dump then I would ask for next years first too.

Re: The 2017 NHL Entry Draft

I have been trying to read up on a lot of the draft pics and I have never read so much contradictory stuff for just about every player. One person says someone is an exceptional skater another one will say that they can't skate etc. Usually you find consensus about a lot of the players but not so mu...

Re: The 2017 NHL Entry Draft

I think the combines are going to be very important this year. If Patrick isn't completely healthy and others really impress he could slide a bit. This draft could be the most unpredictable of all times. IT sounds like there are a lot of players that fall into the sleeper category. It is going to be...

Re: The Rebuild...

I believe Juolevi is over 190 now and could show up at camp in the 195-200 pound range. By all accounts he is lot closer to being physically ready this fall.

Re: The 2017 NHL Entry Draft

The more I read about Necas I agree he may be the sleeper in the draft. I read some where the Benning is very high on him.

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2016/17

I like Tryamkin but I think he is over estimating his ability at this point in time. I think if they can trade his rights and get good value, I would do it. If they can't then you hold on and hope he comes back and that he has improved and matured in his time back home. I am curious how long a contr...

Re: The 2017 NHL Entry Draft

I saw it in a article a while ago, can't remember which one.So hopefully Columbus gets bumped out in the first round.

Expansion draft

https://canucksarmy.com/2017/04/04/gaunce-and-the-expansion-draft/ I think this is a good article on how we can maneuver around the expansion draft. I would not expect to see a lot of rfa signings until after the draft. This also helps explain the Megna signing a little more, we needed another body ...

Re: Willy D death watch...

I don't understand the Willie hate. I think he has done a good job with what he has. He has a good understanding of players and how to get a lot out of them. I look at how much Guance has improved as the year has gone along and I think a lot of that is Willie and how he used him. He doesn't set play...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2016/17

We are only a couple of pleasant surprises from being a playoff team next year. I think we will get them. Erickson will be great next year and help us transition out of the Sedin era. Burrows and Hansen will be hard to replace in the room, but I think with them gone it gives some of the younger guys...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2016/17

Benning has been building for a future 8-12 months out. His strategy is similar to a guy slapping flex seal on his ceiling when the whole roof needs re-done. This is where your thinking is skewed, you thinking he is working on the roof, when he is, in fact, building from the foundation up. Erickson ...
