SKYO stopped drinking way back in his shopping cart daze. He’s simply chronic now, video games, east van chillin with Kendrick Lamar is his scene now.

Shouldn’t the question be, has the alien landed yet?

According to that list we will only have two centres at the YSC. Gaudette and Petterson. D is pretty light. Is it usually such a small roster?
The only HW the Canucks need

I thought Lind was a centre in junior, guess I was wrong.

It’s 14 forwards, 8 d and 2 goalies. MacEwen played centre in junior and I believe McMaster played there in college. Probably giving both guys a long look there.

I don’t think four healthy scratches is a bad thing. It would be kinda shitty to have 6 or 8 guys sitting around with their fingers in their ass

Fuck Lowe and Burke for being crybabies because the tournament isn’t on a rotation

2019/20 Is the year we get really young, can't see Dahlen, Lind, Gaudette not on the club and Hughes will arrive along with Demko.

I think Strategically suppressing the talent and keeping many of the future core in AHL is a frustrating thing to watch as a fan, Gaudette will be 22 this year. However one more year of finishing in the bottom 10 will give us a good chance at getting another star player. This might be the hardest year to endure so far with so much talent ready to get a chance at the big show, but left on the launchpad.

I like Cozens, Byram, Kakko, Krebs, Dach, Robertson, Turcotte, Newhook and obviously JH. Landing another big d like Byram or Robertson would be fantastic or getting a big strong offensive centre like Cozens would be pushing us over the top with high end potential forwards.

I really think this will be the last year for some time that we see the Canucks in a great drafting position, the last year before we see a real changing of the guard and a new core starts to build.

This is all about watching Boeser continue to build on a great year. A potential super star in Elias Pettersson breaking into the league and seeing how Demko, Guadette Dahlen, Juolevi, do when given the chance to play up. Way more interesting story lines this year for our young guns.

For the start of the season Goldobin and Liepsic are the big question marks for me - will they be Canucks in November?

Trading any part of these young guns for a Karelsson is complete insanity- When the Leaves signed JT this year it was the perfect timing, they have an established group of young stars with good contracts, this was perfect timing. JT is a player that can push a group like this to the next level of a deep playoff run and very possible Stanley Cup finals birth. If some of our high end prospects hit this could be the Canucks in a few years, oh yeah and the Leaves did not have to give up any players to get him!

If the Canucks want to take on salary for picks as a third party this makes sense!

The team needs to be careful on this part now, only 1 - 2 years can they take on bad salary as they will be needing the space in 3 - 4 years from now to sign our players and go after any FA we need (the next JT).

I don’t think bad salary for picks is gonna happen, it’s too hard to compete with Arizona, and Carolina in that department.

I agree with most of the rest of your post, but I disagree with this part - the draft lottery has totally thrown a wrench in tanking for draft position.

Since the new rules came in, each year has seen at least one non-bottom 3 team win the lottery for a top-3 pick. Somebody's going to jump up by 4 to 11 spots in the lottery.

So the reality is, the Canucks can just miss the playoffs and still wind up with great drafting position.

A lot of Winnipeg’s success is because of this, Dallas and philly as well.
