  1. Ugh... good prospect, but I still would've tried to add another skater rather than a G. Demko is a better prospect at face value, so I don't think it's a priority. Great goalie prospect though, huge in the memorial cup
  2. Except he's a team first guy and a leader
  3. Really excited about this pick, hopefully he can work on his skating. Most goals by a draft eligible player in the OHL. Say his ceiling is Jeff Carter
  4. I'm happy with the 55th
  5. Sportsnet Pacific, same channel as round 1. Starts at 7
  6. Hague and Ratcliffe are definite considerations. Both are huge, both are talented, both are what we need and what we can use. Please no goalies today, I know we want prospects but we have more than enough depth in net for a year to pass. Time to stock the cupboards with some players, especially in round 2 and 3.
  7. Yea who knows where he actually is, scouts did say the top 3-10 could go in any order. Vilardi at 4 went 11th I think.
  8. My concern with Makar, just like Subban, can he actually play defense. Offensively I'm not worried at all about his offensive merit
  9. There is a difference Makar has offensive talent and offensive awareness. Makar does the things that put up points in the NHL. Virtanen's game offensively is similar to Kesler's 41 goal season, once they figure out the one move, they know how to defend it.
  10. I can't say he's underrated. I honestly say he was overrated from the time he was drafted. I saw him as a straight line forward with very low offensive awareness that used his size and speed and great shot against smaller, less speedy, crappier goaltenders than he is ever going to see in the NHL. He didn't really score goals that would go in the NHL and so far that has proven to be true with him struggling offensively (even though granted it has only been 2 pro seasons so far and players take time). My biggest concern is that the Canucks have given him the tools and direction to succeed, however he has been seen at bars in vancouver getting drunk on weekends looking a little pudgy again, and a friend of mine has even seen him in Abbotsford at Walmart getting beer pong supplies not to long ago. Obviously he's not taking what Travis Green has said too seriously, because if it were me, I'd be busting my butt in the gym and with my nutrition getting ready for next season. So do I think he's under rated? Not a chance, but everyone is entitled to their own opinions; that is what makes us great.
  11. Less valuable because he has a full NTC and won't waive it. He loves Vancouver and wont be going anywhere
  12. No one questions his on ice performance, 28 goals gets you value, you just aren't going to win the lottery in the return. If Kane goes, I doubt it will be a throw away like we did for Kassian. As for the Canucks, it just doesn't make any sense for us to pursue, by the time we rebuild he'll be past his prime. However trading Tanev for Duchene, signing Oshie and getting Kane for cheap would definitely speed up our competitiveness. Still not sure I'd do it though, I'm happy for a tear down
  13. There's a good reason, he sucks
  14. Tanev for Duchene... not going to happen but i can dream
