Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

Craig Button says..... Moving along, nothing to see here. Well, we're citing Eklund in the trade rumor thread, might as well cite Button in the draft thread! :drink: Button is whoring himself for a paycheque, I actually believe he is no better than your average fan when it comes to scouting, like a...

Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

Has anyone seen Kotkaniemi play? I haven’t. What’s this guys deal? Barkov type? Just could be a big two-way scoring type like a Scheifele I've heard. https://www.habseyesontheprize.com/nhl-entry-draft-picks-2018/2018/4/29/17297052/jesperi-kotkaniemi-2018-nhl-draft-prospect-profile-top-centre-stats-...

Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

Bob McKenzie on his podcast: "If the Montreal Canadiens were to take Kotkaniemi at number 3, this is no longer an off the board pick" Mentions multiple NHL scouts he surveyed have the finnish centre ranked above Zadina/Tkachuk
Kotkaniemi could be this years Dubois, jumping past everyone.

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2017-2018

For the illustrious Pettersson, I'd want him with Eriksson and a big LW/C type on his left, start him on the 3rd line. Why LE? Because he is Swedish? Yeah why not? You see Reef some people come over here from overseas and it's nice for them to have someone who knows about their country and language...

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. He'll give the KHL one more year and if it's another so so season he'll buy his contract out with his last dollar in 2019 and sign a nice bonus/contract with the...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Just wondering if anyone has any insight into the two or are we going down the Stetcher/Hutton experiment. The Canucks have decided to not offer contracts to Abols and a couple of other wanna be’s. Clearing the deck. GRAND FORKS — In elementary school, Colton Poolman's class had a reading contest. ...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Tryamkin keeps saying he wants to come back! Nikita Tryamkin says he's open to a return to the Canucks “I looked after the Canucks’ games all season,” Tryamkin said. “It was easy because of the time difference – 12 hours from Vancouver to Yekaterinburg. I can wake up and watch the games or highlight...

Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

Been no secret that I've been a big proponent of getting Evan Bouchard -- the "weakness" people talk about has been his skating, but now Button has spoken on it once again: Craig J Button: Evan Bouchard's skating is not an issue at all http://ckstam.streamon.fm/listen-pl-9941?smc=10 If we are lookin...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2017-2018

I would be playing Petterson at C with Sutter on the wing. Sutter can take the faceoffs while Petterson learns. It would inject some much needed playmaking into the Sutter line. Sutter can continue to do his patented solo dash one on 3 drives while Peteresson is wide open on the side of the net :lo...

I think this is what management might be thinking for next season if they swap the 1st for noah.

HANIFIN - TANEV
