    So a guy who was on the backside of his career claims the Canucks were racist because they chose the Sedins over him. And that sense of entitlement is why the Canucks did not resign him. He was nothing without the Twins. He was upset because the Canucks chose two future Hall of Famers instead of him.

    Yep, how dare he add Miller and Toffoli to the roster in addition to Pearson, Myers, Roussel. At the exorbitant cost of Gudbranson, 1st, 2nd, Madden, and some available cap space. Real terrible position he put us in there. Especially when you factor in that he's given us an awful, unspectacular, unremarkable pipeline of youth at all positions looking forward to the next 5 years. (Podkolzin, Hoglander, Lind, Woo, Rathbone, Juolevi, Rafferty, DiPietro...) Can't wait until he's fired and the next GM can get rid of all those bums on our roster that he drafted. (Pettersson, Hughes, Boeser, Gaudette, Demko, Virtanen...)

    In preparation for the 2020 playoff qualification series between the Minnesota Wild and the Vancouver Canucks, I decided this week to take a look at the Wild from numerous angles and create a resource for anyone looking to become familiar with this team. Every shot faced by Alex Stalock vs LA Kings (Mar. 7): https://streamable.com/m7azck Shift highlights of Kevin Fiala vs Nashville (Mar. 3): https://streamable.com/x79dae Minnesota Wild zone entries vs Washington (Mar. 1) - Part 1: https://streamable.com/qps7ow Minnesota Wild zone entries vs Washington (Mar. 1) - Part 2: https://streamable.com/uufjub Washington Capitals zone entries vs Minnesota (Mar. 1) - Part 1: https://streamable.com/499d3t Washington Capitals zone entries vs Minnesota (Mar. 1) - Part 2: https://streamable.com/661wq7 The Minnesota Wild are an east-west team. They'll go up the ice in numbers, pass off, and enter. The best thing Vancouver can do is offer defensive support and clog the blue line. Slow the Wild down and take those passing lanes away. Compare the Wild's zone entries with those of Washington. The Capitals are much more of a north-south team up the ice. They attack with speed and punch holes through their opposition's defence. They more often attempt one-on-one rushes, and when that fails, the puck goes into the corner to be retrieved. Against the Wild and Stalock, it was important for them to get the puck into the corner and not behind the goal line because he likes to come out to play the puck. The Wild don't have quite the arsenal to be effective individual attackers along the lines of the Capitals. They are more of a passing team than a grinding team. The key line driver is Kevin Fiala; he plays an aggressive style and is always pressuring the opponent at both ends of the rink. He led the team in shots this year with 175, and was also their leading point scorer. If Vancouver can force dump-ins from Minnesota, they will significantly hamper their ability to establish their attack in the offensive zone. The Wild are very unit-oriented moving up the ice. Vancouver need to take away neutral zone passing lanes. The Canucks' defence will need to maintain blue line gap control, and they need forward support. They like to force turnovers in the neutral zone and counter. In the offensive zone, they rely on east-west passing plays and deflections in the crease. Likewise, in the offensive zone, they attack in an east-west manner with quick passes through the middle. The most effective defence against the Wild is to take away their passing lanes. In the Stalock footage, the Kings primarily took advantage of Minnesota off the rush. The Canucks, one of the NHL's faster teams, will want to use a lot of speed and play an aggressive game. They can not play a tentative style or lapse into over-passing tendencies. They should not be afraid to carry it up and pressure the opposing defence. Like the Capitals, they can muscle the puck into the corner if their rush attempt fails. Upon viewing all 217 of the Wild's goals against this year and taking into account their play against Washington, it's clear that Minnesota have issues containing opposition speed. Vancouver will want to play with aggression and speed. They need to avoid over-passing. Pace is key. One of the Canucks' biggest issues is their tendency to become complacent offensively. There were times this season when the team's secondary scorers slumped. Additionally, the Canucks have trouble of their own defending against rush attempts. On paper, the Canucks are the better team. However, they need to play aggressively and relentlessly. They have north-south attackers and numerous high-velocity shooters.

    I find it absurd that anyone who called themselves a hockey fan and a fan of the Canucks could actually cheer for us to lose during that play-in. Clearly we have been outside of meaningful hockey for too long.

    RGMG 6.0 Team Draft https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1YPzh1DyjW6i_EPzmPqs_Xk3f5w1Ey7zuevCTtsIhG54/edit#gid=0 The roster file will take place from 2016-17.... It is currently being built, and there will be a spreadsheet with the players. ETA 7-14 days.

    THE RETURN WHAT'S NEW: 1. All players have been manually re-rated and adjusted by Nail. We are using 2016-17 rosters, pre trade deadline (Burrows/Hansen still on Vancouver) All players have had their player types adjusted to reflect the style that they play IRL. Each team has had 5 prospects selected at Nail's discretion, there will be no swapping of prospects. Every 28 players in each organization has been manually re-rated, their CA has been based off of their abilities in 2017 while their PA has been based off of their abilities in 2020. Each team will be provided with an organizational depth chart with these 28 players shortly after their team selection. 2. Handness and Player Types will now be shown on the sheets. All GMs should be familiar with the different player types, google them if you are not. Will help play a key role in line chemistry and player development. Handness will help match up defenseman on strong sides. 3. Salary Cap Retention will return. Teams will be able to retain up to 80% on any pending free agent's contract. Teams will be limited to retaining salary on 3 players contracts, there is no limit for the number of players that you can acquire retained. 4. The Entry Draft will be overhauled. There will be no more grading system. Instead, players will be ranked based on their projected draft range at the time of the draft. Like real life, teams will not know how good their prospects may become until they have followed their development curve (more leagues have been selected for more accurate prospect stats). The prospect comparables will provide teams with a general idea of how good the prospect could become. A Sidney Crosby comp has more potential than a Tom Sestito comp. This will make player progression more "random", as you do not know how good a player could truly become. Teams will be able to use their perks on prospect scouting reports to figure out more information. As for draft scouts, each team will receive 2 scouts for every 1st round pick they have, and 1 scout for every 2nd and 3rd round pick they have. The scouts will release draft range and comparable. These numbers will be locked in at the beginning of the draft, meaning if teams acquire more picks during the draft, they do not get more scouts. All scouts must be used prior to the end of Round 1. 5. Perks will be overhauled. Teams will have the option to choose between a "Contenders" or "Middling" or "Rebuilders" package, each resetting at the end of each Entry Draft. All perk packages are still subject to change, some minor tweaking may occur. "Contenders" : Teams choosing this package will receive the following: - 5 internal or external scouts that can be used to scout players on any team. These scouts may only be used on a player that has at least 1 full NHL season played. - 1 depth chart that can be used at any time throughout the year - The ability to exceed the salary cap by 1.5M for that upcoming season only - The ability to offer for "grizzled vets" in free agency that are chasing a Stanley Cup and willing to sign for a discount "Middling": Teams choosing this package will receive the following: - 10 internal or external scouts that can be used to scout players on any team. These scouts may only be used on a player that has at least 1 full NHL season played. - 1 depth chart that can be used at any time throughout the year - 1 organizational top prospect rankings list ranked by Nail - 1 30 minute chat with Nail regarding team direction, players to build around, players to sell. Opportunity to ask any questions you wish. "Rebuilders" : Teams choosing this package will receive the following: - 2 comprehensive prospect scouting reports that will reveal the prospect's true potential, their NHL ETA, and their individual strengths and flaws - 1 organizational top prospect rankings list ranked by Nail - The ability to re-negotiate 1 overpaid contract to a cap number more suitable for their skills (must be done in the offseason) - The ability to offer for the new entries into the free agent market that are looking for a team to break into the NHL with 6. The Re-Signing Guidelines will be overhauled. There will hopefully be 1-2 test season simulations in which Nail will release the stats to for teams to get a better idea of how good some players may be. (Maybe this still happens? Who knows) The re-signing guidelines for forwards and defenseman will be built off of these stats. The re-signing guidelines for goaltenders will be primarily based off of CA and PA, and will put less emphasis on stats. If you have a top goalie, you'll be paying him regardless of how good their stats are. Good to be back, revived and renewed! Originally, I started building these rosters and re-rates with a mid August to September start date in mind. Currently, 6 teams out of 30 have been re-rated by me, or 168 players out of 840. I will try and grind more re-rates quicker, although I would like everyone to note that school/work/real life (its still a thing) have picked up greatly since the start of CSL. The sim pace for 6.0 won't be quite as fast as before, but it will be enough to satisfy you horny bastards. Team draft does not need to begin until the rosters are up and available to view on the website, however if you want to pick your team without seeing their full roster/prospects, I won't stop you. I am hopeful to get everything done in 7-14 days, however I do want to run a few test simulation seasons to try out the re-rates and make sure everything looks good so it may be a bit longer than this.

    https://www.tsn.ca/radio/vancouver-1040/canucks-hughes-says-rest-has-him-ready-to-elevate-his-game-1.1491004 VANCOUVER – Quinn Hughes has put the hockey world on notice: he thinks he will be better coming out of the COVID-19 break than when he entered it four months ago. And that’s saying something because the 20-year-old defenseman has set the bar ridiculously high for himself with 53 points in the 69 games he played in his rookie season in the National Hockey League. Speaking to media via Zoom after his first on-ice session in Vancouver since March 10th, Hughes expressed his excitement to get back to work at training camp soon and beyond that a play-in series with the Minnesota Wild. “I think maybe the four months off here was a blessing in disguise for me,” Hughes revealed. “I feel really strong now. I think I can perform better in the playoffs now than I would have three and a half months ago.” Hughes returned to Vancouver over the weekend after spending the break at home with his parents and younger brothers Jack and Luke. He says while he missed the competitive nature of the NHL, he says he maintained his edge by battling his siblings in a variety of sports on a daily basis. “I’m more competitive at home than I would be here, honestly, I think,” he said. “Whether it was ping pong or basketball or anything really, we were competitive. We’d play basketball for two or three hours a day and then we’d work out. Towards the end we could skate, too. And our pool was in, too, so we did a lot of swimming. It was pretty rowdy at the house and we had a lot of fun.” While Phase 2 small group skates are the first step toward a return to NHL life, Hughes has had plenty of time to consider what lies ahead for himself and his hockey club. For months now, the Canucks have known they would face the Minnesota Wild in a best of five play-in series for the right to participate in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Hughes has spent time thinking about his game and how he can help the Canucks get past the Wild, but he also knows the Minnesota coaching staff has had the same amount of time to game plan for its opponent. And if the Wild aren’t taking steps to keep Hughes in check, then they do so are their own peril. Despite his young age, Hughes has proven to be a one-man breakout machine, a power play wizard and a huge play driver for the Canucks. He’s well-aware that he’s going to be a target whenever the puck drops and the teams start playing for keeps. “This time away from the game has given me a lot time to reflect on where I can get better and the future and what that series might look like. They’re going to play hard and it’s going to be do or die. They’re going to play pretty physical and those are things that I’m going to have to get used to," Hughes said. "I think it’s going to be really fun, honestly. I’ve used this time to get stronger. I’ve done a really good job at that. I feel as strong as I’ve ever been. I’m confident and I’m excited to come back here.” A stronger, fresher Quinn Hughes should have the Canucks and their fans excited, too.

    DRAFT TIDBITS PART 1 * The draft sheet has not been made yet, and I have no knowledge whether these players are good or not, I am just providing extra information on draft eligible prospects. Just because a player gets a tidbit does not mean they are good, likewise with players that do not end up receiving a tidbit leading up to the draft. Teams may use these tidbits to their advantage (or not)...... Owen Tippett (RW) Tippett has been a man on a mission to start this season, racking up 14 goals in 17 games in the OHL. He has 22 points total and is sporting an impressive 8.41 AVR thus far. Michael Rasmussen (C) The big fella out West, Rasmussen has 20 points in 15 games to start the season with Tri-City, and is dominating the faceoff dot winning 61% of his draws. He is also a physical specimen, racking up 54 hits in these 15 games. Casey Mittelstadt (C/LW) Although Mittelstadt is above a PPG in the USHL thus far (12 points in 11 games), he seems to be struggling physically as his AVR is sitting at a lowly 6.18. The playmaking center may need to pull-up his training regimes in order to get stronger. Ryan Poehling (C) Entering the NCAA as a 17 year old, it seems St. Cloud State may be red-shirting Poehling this year as he has yet to appear in a game. Many are wondering if not playing any games will affect his future development at all... Timothy Liljegren (RD) Playing in the Swedish J20 league, Liljegren has dominated through 6 games this season, racking up 11 points and is sporting an 8.33 AVR. He seems ready for the next challenge as this league is too easy for him.

    Pure ceiling: all that and more. He has the potential to be a first line/star talent that pushes his individual scoring rate up to around a point per game, while making strong contributions all over the ice (defense/checking, retrieval, possession, playdriving, physicality, energy, leadership, special teams, etc). Podkolzin has a wealth of raw talent, plays a relentless, high energy, two-way game, drives play at both ends of the ice, creates a tonne of chances, extends possession, and has an impressive arsenal of overall offensive skills. He has the potential to be a Mark Stone level player (or a Mark Messier type, if you wanna quote Igor Larionov). I could see him becoming the type of player that regularly posts elite level GAR/WAR (and similar overall stats measures for on-ice effects). In terms of pure potential, his ceiling is very high. But like all prospects, the odds are he doesn’t hit his ceiling. Most likely range: middle-six winger who can play either side, all situations, 40-60 points per season, along with a very nice fancy stats profile. Best C match, Petey/Bo/Gauds: TBD.

    HELPING UNDERSTAND THE NEW DRAFTING SYSTEM: From questions I've received and info that has been gathered in Discord, here are some helpful tips to draft: Draft range is determined strictly off of EHM's final rankings. The highest potential players won't be in a linear order from 1 to 120. Draft comparable will help you get an idea of what the players potential ceiling may be. Nothing is guaranteed, some players will be able to surpass this ceiling, some players won't be able to reach this ceiling. Draft range is also determined by the players reputation in game as well as their current ability (CA). Players with a higher CA are more likely to be rated higher. If a player has a high draft range but a meh comparable, this likely means they are pretty far into their development curve and may be close to or already reached their max. If a player has a lower draft range but a better comparable, this likely means the player is very underdeveloped, however should he develop properly, has a higher ceiling. Given the limited information you receive for the top 30 prospects or draft scouts, it will help to really key in on the comparable and draft range.

    Steve Schmidt, campaign manager for John McCain and a card carrying Republican, spoke about the stool sample in chief. https://www.google.ca/amp/s/www.mediaite.com/news/msnbcs-steve-schmidt-brutally-fires-back-at-trump-bidens-crushing-you-your-late-father-knows-youre-a-failure-much-more/amp/ “I can’t wait for this moment. It will come early. “Fox News is now projecting Joseph R. Biden is the President-Elect of the United States” The American people are going to throw you out of office. You will be repudiated and disgraced. The oh leave nothing behind but the stench of epic failure.No American has ever failed this country worse than you. None. Your incompetence, ignorance, ineptitude and old fashioned stupidity have caused economic collapse and made the US the epicenter of Corona virus death and suffering. You have shattered American Alliances and weakened our military.You are a disgrace. Your name will be a synonym for losing, failure and weakness.Biden is crushing you. You want to know why? It’s because he is a good man and you are a bad one. He cares about the American people and you do not. He is Respected on the world stage and you are laughed at like some type of grotesque and buffoonish clown. He is capable and you are not. You attack because you are scared.Take a minute to look at the picture of Fred Trump on your desk. Do you think he would be surprised by your Failures? He would not. He bailed you out over and over again. He bailed you out because you couldn’t cut it as anything other than a Conman.There will be no monuments and no encomiums for you. The whole country has watched you fail. The whole country is watching your Increasingly feeble state. The whole country is watching you lose. We will all watch you return to your golf clubs as the biggest loser the American Presidency has ever produced.”

    This trade was the best trade the Canucks have done in over a decade. Miller is literally the Canucks MVP (next to Marky). Canucks would not be anywhere near being as good with out him. Great cap hit on his contract - yes Young player in his prime - yes Top Point producer on the team - yes Defensively reliable - yes Physical presence - yes Leader on and off the ice - yes All for a late round first who may or may not even turn pro. Yes people. This is the best trade I’ve seen the Canucks do in a very long time.
