You have to think Colorado goes with Vilardi or Makar.

I feel like Vilardi will still be on the board and we will pick Glass or Peterssen and piss off a bunch of people as if we have seen any of these kids play! :lol:

Shocking start to the draft! :lol:

I expect us to go with Glass or a defenceman if one drops.

Re: Vancouver's Hockey "Media"

More Karen Surman and Sattiar Shah and less Taylor and Macdonald and Jake etc This. It's time for a changing of the guard. When Blake Price and Matt Sekeres are the youngest hosts on your network, you've got a major lack of representation. I wouldn't care if there was diversity of opinion and abili...

Re: The 2017 NHL Entry Draft

Trade down Jimmy Do any of those teams hold 2 1st round picks by chance...say an 8th and a 16th or something...that would be ideal I think the closest is Arizona who hold the 7th and 23rd picks. Depending on who they covet, they might be willing to move up I guess. I agree that the consensus seems ...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2016/17

IMO the only way we get #3 overall is in a Tanev+ deal but, as we know, rarely can such a deal be worked out. Yep. I agree this is probably the most likely demand from Dallas. I figured they may bite for the 5th overall if they are absolutely desperate on draft day but if they have the cap space to...

Re: Canucks News and Notes 2016/17

Our 5thOA for 3OA and Niemi??? I think this is fair market value and the most sensible proposal I have seen. I doubt Dallas goes for it though unless they have exhausted all other options. Seems like they are really trying to leverage that pick for immediate help but I could see them going for this...

Re: The 2017 NHL Entry Draft

No matter what happens for Benning's success or failure - or the Canucks crippling success, it's imperative the team acquire #3 - no I'm NOT kidding, acquire that pick or fold the franchise. Why? Are you that sold on Vilardi? I am intrigued by him as well but there is a clear drop off after the top...

Re: The Rebuild...

The man should be lynched right in front of the University of Victoria for the absolute atrocious mess he made of this once storied franchise. Storied franchise? :lol: We are all die hard fans here but I think it's more than wishful thinking to describe the Canucks in such terms especially in the p...

That definitely might interest Dallas but not sure why the Canucks should be interested. There's no consensus 3rd best prospect so not worth trading up unless you could somehow move into the top 2.

Re: Prediction for Draft Spot - 2017 - with Poll

So let's here the pro tankers spinning this one. Two years in a row we end up with the 5th while teams finishing ahead of us move up to get the best picks. I don't want to hear tank for first ever fucking again. Got it. Try for the playoffs, finish 8-12 and move the fuck up. Right on HW Mmmm if the...

Re: 2nd Round Prediction Thread / 2017 Playoffs

Predators in 7 - No clue really but let's go with that Ducks in 6 - Anaheim doesn't impress me but I'm betting the Oilers will beat themselves Senators in 6 - Karlsson will guide them past the rangers. Burrows will get one assist in the series Capitals in 7 - So tempted to choose the Pens in 6 but t...
