Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 19-20 Sponsored by SKYO

I’ve mentioned this before, put Miller at centre and go with a top 9. Most the league has adapted the top 9 model. The future Hoglander Petey Podkolzin Virtanen Miller Lind Xxxxxxx Horvat Boeser Motte Gaudette MacEwan Lockwood Do you really see Horvat and a $7 million re-signed Boeser on the 3rd li...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Juolevi is the linchpin that decides where the team goes next year. Hes the affordable option with the highest upside. All hail the mighty Ollie Oh and we're gonna need Tanev resigned and another top 4 righty as well Linchpin.... more like a poppy pin. ANOTHER top 4 RH shot D man besides Tanev? Whe...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

@ Gohmert I did like the Ferland signing at the time but he looks like he should probably hang em up at this point. The other four I mentioned are barely good enough to play in the league. Yet let’s boot Virtanen to the curb. :roll: Who says we’re booting him to the curb though? I’m assuming if we ...

Re: Canucks News n Notes 2019-2020

All these wizards that want to run Virtanen out of town don’t seem to realize he was on a 40 + point pace playing 13 minutes a game. Jake is a consistent non-factor in line for a substantial raise. His agent will be the one driving him to the airport not the team It’s Jake’s fault that Benning has ...

I always forget about Toni utunen, hows he looking? He could be a bit of a dark horse guy in a year or 2.

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 19-20 Sponsored by SKYO

I've been waiting for Gaudette to show us that he's got the next level in him, but I'm not seeing it. Playoffs or not, the effort seems to be there, but I see him as a placeholder now, and not part of the long term core. Jake is making a case to be in the same boat. I've been rooting for both of th...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 19-20 Sponsored by SKYO

Miller will be with Petterson next year, book it! Their right winger is probably Boeser but could be Toffoli. The Canucks are stronger down the middle than on the wing. No reason to steal from Peter to pay Paul. I disagree that we’re stronger down the middle unless we see a big change in gaudette’s...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 19-20 Sponsored by SKYO

Dick if they had six legit top 9 wingers I might share your sentiment. They don’t. They have three and some questions marks. You’re putting the cart before the horse and completely ignoring the abortion of a back end. Toffoli, boeser, Jake, gaudette, Pearson, ferland(if healthy). I think boeser and...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Heres a half decent scribble about the Rathboner. Thats a sneaky good prospect Benning locked up holy fuck. A 4th rounder tracking to be a top 4 NHL dman within a year or 2. Nice https://www.si.com/hockey/news/vancouver-signs-jack-rathbone-and-the-timing-is-noteworthy I really expect he'll have a s...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 19-20 Sponsored by SKYO

Pearson is slowing down??? How many points did he put up this year? If sutter or Louie are moved toffoli will be back. Finding a third line center through trade is a lot harder than finding a top 6 winger through trade(Not to mention we have one I ferland that may be good to go). Miller is an excel...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 19-20 Sponsored by SKYO

You’re out to lunch. And Pettersson is the teams best forward. Miller is far more effective in the wing and gives the team a safety net in case Bo or Petey get hurt. Yes Pearson is slowing down. He is pushing 30 and he wasn’t a great skater to begin with. I don’t mind him or Toffoli but I’m not sur...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Rafferty didn’t look ready in training camp before the bubble. If Stecher isn’t resigned Benn slots in as the top six right side D unless another UFA is signed or a trade is made. Benn isn't really fast enough for the NHL game. He had one decent spell in Montreal but his strides are really getting ...
