They won’t pencil Gadjovich in the line-up for next season. Likely they hope he shows well in the preseason and becomes a top injury call-up. At best he displaces MacEwen or Roussel on the fourth line/spare forward and works his way up from there if he shows the ability. I like him, but he’s still a long shot to have a significant NHL career.

I see nhl games for at least four of those guys, only one I’m a little concerned about is gadjovich not having quick enough feet. Rathbone and lind should graduate up for next season, another year for Lockwood and woo.
And who would these 4 replace on the current roster?
Roussel, Sutter (assuming Gaudette is kept as 3rd line C), Benn, Hamonic.
You have more faith than I, I would be happy if one of them make the NHL.
Lol. Yeah, sorry, didn't quite get your intent there. I was just picking 4 guys who probably won't be with the team by the end of the 2021-22 season.

Canucks Army hyping Jonah Gadjovich: "stronger than everyone in the AHL".

I think it might be a bit of an over exaggeration. He's listed @ 6'2, 209 lbs, which is good size for NHL standards, but I wouldn't say it's hulking like Bertuzzi (around 230+ lbs). It's nice to see Gadjovich doing well in the AHL (11GP, 9G, 2A), but gotta take that with a grain of salt as well as most of the top AHLers are on NHL taxi squads (ie: J.Bailey) or are playing in different leagues (ie: Boucher + Goldobin in KHL). It's great to see Gadjo playing well, but gotta take things in context. Gadjo's stats are way better than Bearcheese though (only 2G, 5A), a former NHLer who had moderate success with us, so that's quite impressive.

Holy crap.. when will people realize the days of Vey, Etem, Gaunce, Chaput, Megna, etc, etc, etc. are over???

NOBODY gets “penciled in” anymore. We actually have enough NHL caliber humans on the team that guys compete for spots now.

This is a good thing. It’s why we had to overpay for a 4th line to set a minimum standard of what an NHL guy is for this team. 4years ago, we would have creamed to have Beagle and Rooster on the 4th line, now we can’t wait for them to go. Yes, Green has to ice the team he wants to win with (He has done better with that this year), but the fact remains is that your team will go as far as your bottom 6 take you. We didn’t used to have a bottom 6, and now we have a bar set for a talent level to get in our bottom 6. No matter the standings this year, let’s look at the increase in the overall talent level in the bottom 6 over the last 4 years (something Doyle keeps harping on - depth).. but the message has been sent with waivers and roster moves (Louise on the bench, Bearshit in Utica, buyouts, etc) that you can’t just show up for ice cream and paycheques anymore.

Everyone hammers on JB for every single thing he does, but just look at the increase in the ‘minimum standards’ over the last 5 years, and see the increase in that.

This isn’t a shot at you Cher, it’s just a blurb more aimed at Twitter and the EBL version of media we get these days. I just used your post to launch a rant :lol:

Anyways, bottom line, they come to camp, they compete for jobs. Just because fans or media like the potential of someone, it don’t mean nuthin.

Another goal just standing there being a net presence and it's like the d-man can't get position and move him out. Wouldn't mind seeing him get some games here near the end of the year.

Yeah, I am wondering how his game will translate to the NHL. I am hoping he can be a Darren McCarty type guy for us.

BTW:

I believe he has 10 goals in 12 games so far in the AHL this season.

Edit:

Make that 11 goals in 12 games so far this season.

Future Canucks playing awesome.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."
