The 2020 picks are shit, so let’s make the one year gap a two year gap in the system. Makes total sense. They have plenty of developing youth... sure, the odd guy may even be useful. Why keep trying to short circuit the rebuild? Next year looks like another shitty year. Collect picks and prospects and maybe use them as currency when the team is ready to take a good step. People are so fucking impatient.

The rebuild started in Feb 2017. Let’s give it time shall we? Let the swamp drain, trade the UFA, no expensive UFA deals this summer. Some folks can’t handle a rebuild. :mex:

If I were Francesco, I’d have a hard and fast rule that limited UFA signings to two years. Once players proved themselves on the Canucks (not on other teams) they could get resigned for more term. This season there are going to be a ton of FAs. Once the initial free agent frenzy passes there will be good players had cheap. There is no rational reason not to sell the Canucks UFAs now and get draft picks.
We are all Jim Benning.

It’s not a very good class but some good players will come out of it for sure so I’m all in for keeping the 2021 picks but I’d support moving it if it hauled us something similar to JT Miller. Definitely not in to loading up on 2021 picks but definitely into loading up on 2022 picks because that class is pure bad ass.

The Draft Analyst March 2021 top 32 picks:

https://www.thedraftanalyst.com/2021-nh ... -32-march/

Brandt Clarke seems a staple to #6, but they got L. Hughes at 13? and Edvinsson dropping way down to 26!?
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."

Jimmy will sort through that cat box of chocolate bars and find the sweet georgia brown of this class

Would be nice to draft one of the Americans - Berniers of Hughes or one of the Swedes - Eklund of Edvinsson

Don't normally take much notice in this guy but it's difficult not to notice this. Link
J.D. Burke @JDylanBurke
Haven't seen this out there yet. My understanding based on a conversation with a well-placed source is that top 2021 NHL Draft prospect Luke Hughes is going to be out for the remainder of the 2020-21 season. The phrasing was "several torn ligaments in his foot."

Scouting reports on the top 10 prospects of the 2021 draft class, the pros and cons of each. This will be a highy unpredictable class and raa and ranking right up to draft day. No special players in this draft, there will be more duds than dudes after all is said and done

I predict this class will be as bad as the ‘96 draft class. The Chris Phillips class. Could even be worse

Where will the Canucks be picking? 14th overall? Trade the puck ffs. Let’s get JT Miller 2.0

Brandt, Edvinsson or Lysell look to me to be the highest ceiling players. Maybe they arent generational talents but i would say they could be damn good

Trade the pick, Wizard. This class stinks as bad as SKYO’s homemade salmon candy

If you can land that tough, mobile, defensively sound top pairing righty then absolutely you do. Could Vegas be interested in moving McNabb for it?

I sure hope Benning is seeing what’s available with offering up the 2021 1st round pick. There could be another JT Miller out there more so especially with the Expansion draft. Great players could be had with that first with teams having protection issues

Mcnabb is definitely not a top pairing guy. He is also 30 years old. I don’t give up a first rounder for him. Whitecloud.... perhaps.

Ok then they shoot us a 2nd the year after then. McNabb paired up with Schmidt very well and is the type of piece Van desperately needs on their back end. They might be willing to move BM only because they do have whitecloud

Not giving up a top 10 pick for one year of a soon to be 31 year old McNabb and the 60th pick. McNabb isn’t a guy killing their cap anyways. He only makes 2.5 million.
