In two years:

Tryamkin Boqvist
Juolevi Tanev
Edler Gudbranson
Saunter Stecher

Edler will play a lot longer than most here expect. He ends up being the team’s edler statesman when they make the playoffs again.

MDZ, Hutton, Pouliot are your defensive trade chips for a couple low draft picks somewhere down the road.
We are all Jim Benning.

To reiterate on the Sedins retiring, I think the Canucks will be going through a huge culture change in how the team plays and its new swagger with the new young leaders at the helm.

The Sedins represented the classy gentleman lifestyle, high IQ players who didn't engage in fighting and shied away from the nasty side of the game totally.

While I believe with the Travis Green coaching philosophy in fast/gritty/effort play, with Horvat, Boeser, Virtanen etc up front, the team will have a new aggressive look, young hungry millionaires.

They'll definitely be a new energy to the team moving forward.

Eriksson is what he is, he has the same gentleman style game as the twins, but he's a different style of point producer, he has a solid 200ft game, his metrics say he makes his linemates better, he's as reliable as they come, but how he gets his points is by being around the net and being an opportunist (that's how Claude Julien used him), he should be a staple on the powerplay now that the sedins have left with his long reach, he should be superb banging in loose pucks and snipes in the slot.

I'll even take him in the Camaro :mrgreen:

But no, we have to make the assumption something new and wondrous manifests itself and a 60 point player pops up.

He should go back to the old look with the short hair though.
The mop doesn't work, not to mention, it looks creepy. :devil:

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

The off-season is young Blob.

I know this is a foreign concept to you but... patience?

There may be trades.

Also, nothing wrong with competition for jobs.

Barring a miracle, Kero and Motte will play for the Comets this year.

A few others are waive-able, a few are flush-able.

I don't see a problem, maybe shakes out something like this:


Lipstick/ Baertschi – Horvat – Boeser
Dahlen – Gagner – Pettersson
Eriksson/ Gaudette – Sutter – Virtanen
Roussel - Beagle – Schaller
Gaunce /Granlund


Who knows at this point, many possibilities... and that's a good thing.

That’s still 16 forwards

I am patient. It’s the IGC crew that isn’t.

I’ve been advocating building through the draft and adding picks while IGC only want the standard amount of picks and not one extra.

... as long as ALSO other "young developing players" are coming in - YES

The overall potential of those "young developing players" that came in

... is/was greater than any extra picks we could have had.

Wrong.
I tend to think that given JB's potential drafting success, Blob is correct. Pretty sure JB could have drafted players much better than the reclamation players he acquired.

But perhaps you are correct, perhaps JB's drafting isn't nearly as good as we think it is and perhaps said players will turn out to be of more value than picks would have. We should have a pretty good indication in the next few years though - to see how his picks, particularly later round picks, turn out.
