Re: 2021 TDD

Ya the Gaudette move is a little of a mystery. I would have preferred a 5th or 6th round pick. But he was a player Benning obviously was not going to re-sign so it shaves a touch off the cap this season and saves on cap if we were to re-sign him, and we may need Highmore to finish the season. He ca...

Re: 2021 TDD

Bowie is the Defensemen they needed to not expose Myers in the expansion draft. They can expose Bowie instead now. He won't be taken, but the dropping down one round in the draft is a cheap price to fill that expansion draft need. He probably never sees the Canucks unless there are a lot of injurie...

Re: 2021 TDD

If they wanted to get rid of Gaudette, so they don't have to re-sign him, why wouldn't they ask for a draft pick rather then an AHL-tweener? I get that they're trying to dump Gaudette's contract, but I don't think Highmore has a future in the lineup. The only pro scouting success that Elmer has see...

Re: 2021 TDD

Gaudette has had several years to displace Sutter and hasn't been able to. Time to cut bait before he starts costing money. Should have done the same with Jake two years ago. Gaudette, a center with a career faceoff percentage of 41.1 and Corsi and Fenwick percentages well below 50. -- Blackhawks c...

On Virtanen vs Gaudette I'll say this though..... When Jake actually plays to potential he's very noticeable and ...

Re: Canucks News N Notes 2020-2021

You think we'll have a holdout in Hughes? With Barry as his agent it's not far fetched I suppose, but if Hughes holds out, so does Petey (same agent). Hughes will holdout for Petey money, but he shouldn’t get more than McAvoy money. It’s that simple. Over three years Petey should be shy of Barzal’s...

Re: Canucks News N Notes 2020-2021

Planning for 2021/22 - If Schmiddy is here for the long-term, might as well utilize him best as the team's main LD, shelter Hughes to 2nd pairing, but gets all the powerplay time. Schmidt - Myers (highest paid dmen should get the toughest matchups, but they could be getting less than Hughes new $) ...

If he's not then I'm back to questioning his worth based on either durability or attitude.

Re: Canucks Young Guns

6 points in 6 AHL games for Rathbones pro rookie season. A rocket out of the gates. He won’t lag too long in the A. Brilliant draft pick. The farm looks great with promising prospects - Lind, Rathbone, Gadjovich, Lockwood and Woo! I see nhl games for at least four of those guys, only one I’m a litt...
