Mick, Olli is going to get called up this season, guaranteed. Book it. I also see Gaudette and maybe even Dahlen getting a cup of coffee.

They just gotta make sure they cook the fuck outta the kids down in Utica.

Reefmeister, watch those links man. You don't see the smarts and skill there in both zones that's translatable to today's NHL?! The Keeping guy just posted stats that are an analyst's wet dream.

The only thing challenging OJ is NHL speed in decision making and NHL strength.
Try to focus on 1 year from now...

I actually do know that. ;)
Dude was being a tad preachy, in a ha ha way.

Although, judging from the last millennia, few years, we need to manage our defense men better.
Each team has three press box seats and I most assuredly think the Canucks should always allocate two of them to defense men.
Even though no player wants, or should want, to sit, cant help thinking of Tanev and how worn down he gets sometimes.

What indications are there that he’s hinted of coming back?

Blob, I said imagine.
I have heard one maybe, could possibly, but there is no-way I can consider it reliable enough to make anything other than a hope so.

Word Nikita T changed his instagram profile pic to him in a Canucks jersey today.

Homeboy wants to follow his fellow countrymen Kovalchuk and Nichushkin back to the best hockey league in the known universe.

IF; Hughes, Juolevi and Tryamkin were all regulars, what a different blue line.

Who would be gone?
Del Zotto, Hutton, Stecher, Pouliott ? There would'n't be much coming back for any of those.
Well guess Hutton just goes lookin for employment next year anyways, although he'd probably re-up for peanuts.

It would be different that’s for sure. Probably more dynamic and long term likely quite a bit better. But in the present the D wouldn’t be a ton better. Pouliott is the most improved player in the first seven games in.

IF the big meathead comes back and that’s a HUGE IF.

Re up Edler and deal Tanev and Gudbranson. Sign Myers as a ufa.

Edler Myers
Juolevi Tryamkin
Hughes Pouliott

Next year go with:

Quinn Hughes - Chris Tanev

Nikita Tryamkin - Nikita Zaitsev (lol yes), someone to keep the NK happy so he doesn't bolt back to the KHL, and they can communicate better on the ice.

Olli Juolevi - Erik Gudbranson

Pouliot - Chatfield

Pick up some picks moving out Edler, MDZ and Huts.
Jett Woo and Chatter can move up in the top6 D in 2,3 years, with Brisebois the new Pouliot.

Pouloit looks like he got the memo, he may turn into something, he’s been playing with a ton more confidence this year.

I thought he would've panned out better than a #5/6 when we acquired him but maybe hes a late(r) bloomer.

He was a fairly highly touted prospect that fell from favour...to a degree.

I think a big part of it was laziness on his part especially training wise

It was only 1-2 weeks ago that Trymankin was stripped of the captaincy and benched for 2-3 games. No word on why. Just saying something may not be quite right with his commitment which doesn’t bode well for him fitting into the NHL. Perhaps his not wanting to engage is more of a concern?
