    For those of you making comparisons of Tyler to his dad John in terms of size and weight, his dad's weight was 170 lbs in his sophomore (2nd) year playing college at Michigan and entered the NHL as rookie with the playing weight of 185 lbs: https://mgoblue.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=4634

    They will probably discuss what is better for his development: playing for the Canucks in a what is likely to be a bottom feeding season, or there is potential to play with his brother and push for a NCAA title. I think there is a higher probability that they do the latter if Jack is able to "accelerate" his academics, and then bring Quinn aboard once his season is over with Michigan.

    Seems to be quite a selective filter he used. He was looking at the Mastis league only and filtered, U18 and drafted. https://www.eliteprospects.com/league/mestis/stats/all-time?age=u18&prospects=drafted Whereas, if you do the same thing for the Liiga and he falls down to 21: https://www.eliteprospects.com/league/liiga/stats/all-time?age=u18&prospects=drafted

    I'm dreaming of a Calder battle between Hughes and Hughes...

    There is a good segment about his relationship with Brady Tkachuk in this clip. Maybe he can convince Brady to get out of the Ottawa tire fire... hahaha Also, this has Button and Mackenzie as commenters and none of the Burke bs in it, which I hadn't heard yet.

    I was REALLY hoping we were going to draft him! So excited to have this kid on our team! He will basically change the entire dynamic of the team with how he plays. Here's a good Habs pre-draft article considering Hughes at #3: https://www.habseyesontheprize.com/nhl-entry-draft-picks-2018/2018/6/21/17441724/quinn-hughes-third-overall-montreal-canadiens-entry-draft-target-profile-stats-rankings-scouting “Hughes’ track record this season has been nothing but spectacular.” - [Winging It In Motown] “He is one of the most naturally talented players in the draft and has all the makings of a high-end puck-moving NHL defenceman.” - [Mile High Hockey] “In terms of talent, Hughes is one of the most elite upside players in this draft” [Canes Country] “He’s the quintessential puck-moving defenceman who can push the defense back with his skating prowess alone.” [Broad Street Hockey]

    Sorry Calgary, Emilio Pettersen is not the guy making the headlines over in Europe...

  9. 2018 NHL Entry Draft

    Does any know the exact the draft starts on Friday?
  10. Acording to Bob McKenzie ( Picks 5 through 8)

    Yeah, I agree. It's all conjecture until both teams tell the story, which no one, ever, will spend the time doing up because nobody cares except for these few CDC conspirators. As if selecting the best upcoming player in Europe wasn't good enough...
  11. Acording to Bob McKenzie ( Picks 5 through 8)

    Bringing up this convo again... But, it seems like no one ever considered that the real marquee player that influenced everything was Cale Makar. Canucks were targeting Makar, and wanted to trade down once he wasn't available anymore. However, Vegas originally starts the talk of a possible trade because they were also targeting Makar. As history plays it, Makar gets picked at #4, Canucks seek to trade down, but Vegas calls it off because they were also after him - neither team knowing that he was the deciding factor for the other. Just my thought.
  12. 2018 NHL Entry Draft

    My draft hopefuls are based on the entertainment potential that they can bring. We haven't won a Stanley Cup in our entire history, nor would I count on one, so at the very least I want to be entertained by our team - and not in a Ruutu tripping Dion sort of way, but in competitiveness and skill. Therefore, the two guys I hope we have the chance at drafting are as follows: 1. Brady Tkachuk I want Tkachuk to fall to us just for the entertainment factors alone. Having the Tkachuk brothers battle it out for the next decade would be awesome to watch. Beyond these though he brings a high level of compete to our top 6 that would complement our other players really well. We could very well see a line of Tkachuk - Pettersson - Eriksson as soon as next year. 2. Quinn Hughes His transitional game is something that Canucks haven't had in a long time. The last player to be even close to his ability to skate the puck up the ice was Christian Ehrhoff, and we have been missing that element from our defense ever since. Seeing Hughes control the play with the likes of Pettersson and Boeser would be a treat to watch.
  13. The Getzlafs and Thornons of the West will be in retirement by the time our team is relevant again.

    I agree. I hope they don't the whole post-captain "it's too soon" thing. Stick a C on someone and make the rebuild official! Get the fans excited about a new future. If they don't, it'll feel like another throw away season right from the start.
  15. Great point! So he should be producing like a first liner then right?
