That's what it should be like outside of this thread. Throw in some humour and personality and it's all good.

From the small sample size I've seen, he obviously has a lot to work on, but I think going back to Europe or juniors especially the QHL might be a wasted year for him. It looks like he is already physically mature enough to handle pro hockey at the AHL level.
I agree. I think the AHL would be the best for him now. He seems too advanced for the Q and why burden him with learning the French Canadian culture and language as well? Moreover, all being equal, I would want prospects on our AHL team being in the lower mainland.

Sources indicate to @TheAthletic
that the Canucks and CAA made progress this morning in Elias Pettersson, Quinn Hughes talks.

Don’t call it a breakthrough (yet), but there’s optimism that Vancouver and their two cornerstone players are inching toward a resolution at last.

Talks this afternoon on-going.

Rumour was Hughes was closer but been told deals for both players are being done at same time.
Sounding .imminent.. :rockin:

Bah, I don't believe this. I won't until I get some validation in the form of a Tom Cook tweet.

Sportsnet's official announcement; Hughes and Pettersson;

https://www.sportsnet.ca/nhl/article/ca ... nn-hughes/
The Vancouver Canucks agreed to new contracts with the team's two most important players on Friday: Elias Pettersson and Quinn Hughes.

Pettersson's new contract is for three years with a $7.35 million average annual value. Hughes agreed to a six-year deal and a $7.85 million AAV.

Pettersson, 22, is a dynamic offensive talent and the face of the Canucks as the team's No. 1 centre. The 2019 Calder Trophy winner began his career with back-to-back 66-point campaigns before a wrist injury limited him to only 21 points in 26 games last season.
A fixture on the Canucks' power play ever since his debut season, Hughes holds the Canucks' all-time rookie record for points scored on the man-advantage -- a presence he figures to continue having for the club moving forward now that a new deal for his services is in place.

Craig Button on Donnie & Dhali:



- Starts around 2:30 mark
- Button likes Rathbone, dynamic player and difference maker.
- Thinks Olaf is a depth player/6-7th D-man, dime a dozen guy.
- Likes Podz and Lockwood, good depth up front.
- Thinks Klimovich should just go to junior, let him dominate there.

Even positive reaction from "the other :scowl: " side of the nation.
On the successful signings of Pettersson and Hughes whilst on a limited budget.
