      They won't deal if they continue to win as they are now. If they slide south they will make deals after Chiarelli is fired, the new front office will be moving parts then.

  3. Apparently 2020 is gonna be a deep ass draft in terms of high end skill at the top of the 1st rd

  4. SN did a best and worse case scenario for the canucks... Honestly the best case should say "Win the draft lottery and draft Jack Hughes."

      ^^^^ That

       

      But realistically we all know the Canucks don't have that sort of luck

      My personal feeling is that Jack reminds me of RNH and Quinn will end up becoming the better NHL player. Jack only plays on half the ice surface and isn't very gutsy when the going gets rough. Im personally hoping for Kakko

      @hammertime Im a really big fan of Kakko too!! Those 2 players are the ones im most excited about in the 2019 draft. 

  5. DAMN i was hoping DET would fk up. Oh well. TANK FOR JACK HUGHES!!!
  6. Tanev only worth a 2nd round pick boi's

      That opinion ain't fact. And even if it was I'd sooner retain the known quantity in Tanev than flip him for a second round lottery ticket. I don't imagine we'd have much trouble signing him to an extension so it's not as if our hands are tied and we've got to get something for him.

      Tanev’s trade value is moot, because we’re not trading him.  He’s on our second pair with Olli.  And that’s going to be a great pairing!!!

    4. King Heffy

      If that's all we get, keep him.  Prices would be likely to go up near the deadline anyway and he's an easy contract to fit with retention as a rental.  I also have no issue with keeping him around in a role similar to Salo.

  7. If the draft was today, and Wahlstrom was at 7, Im taking him. Screw getting a D. We can prob get a D with 37th

      @DontMessMe This is pretty close to my view on things as well. Also don't be surprised if Tkachuk is available at 7, and this would be perfect for us because he's exactly what we need to round out our young depth on forward. At the end of the day though I'd be very happy with one of Wahlstrom, Hughes, Dobson or Tkachuk. It's likely that two of these guys will be available at our selection.

    3. DontMessMe

      DontMessMe

      @Herberts Vasiljevs Exactly what im thinking. 

    4. Type R

      Type R

      Consensus is that Tkachuk goes before Wahlstrom, and that suits me fine, it sounds like Wahlstrom suits this team better.

  8. Call me crazy but im so down to do Tanev + bear cheese + 2nd round for one of NYI 1st rounder

      But are trades ever fair?  GM's love to one-up each other lol

      @TheHitman If we loss more games we wouldve picked #1! ;)

      @DontMessMe If we won four more games in 2016 we would have the best goal scorer in the NHL today! 

  10. Can we just intentionally tank next year and get Hughes

      Short of Benning making bold moves this offseason and our young guns having a bunch of success offensively we'll probably be in the mix for a top five pick again next season

  11. Petterson Horvat Boeser (1st line next yr plz) 

    1. 48MPHSlapShot

      48MPHSlapShot

      Pettersson seems to be better on the right side.

  12. I saw this on twitter. Some dude was suggesting we should trade our pick this year assuming its between 6-9 for a top 10 pick next yr.

      how would you guarantee that? and who would do that? and why would they? 

  13. IF we pick either 6 or 7 (8 may happen but 9 WONT happen for sure). I will be happy if its Boqvist, Hughes, Wahlstrom or Tkachuk.  In fact.. anyone BUT Bouchard plzzz.

      @DontMessMe - I think you misunderstand the phrase "literally impossible". Its "literally impossible" that the Canucks pick 10th OA. It is "extremely unlikely" that the Canucks pick 9th OA. 

      Dahlin > Svechnikov > Zadina > Hughes > Tkachuk > Boqvist > Dobson > Wahlstrom > Bouchard

      I personally do not want Tkachuk, Boqvist, or Bouchard. 

      I don't really get the love affair that people have with Bouchard. The guy is SLOW. The new NHL is all about speed and transition, not something that Bouchard is strong with. Not to mention that Bouchard is overly mature for the league he plays in which has had a direct impact on his point production. I think he has the lowest ceiling of the other D in the top 10 and has high bust potential (although not as much bust potential as Boqvist).

      @Fateless I firmly believe that you misunderstood my intention of saying "literally impossible.". I understand that there is a ~2% chance of picking 9th I think. What I meant to convey by stating "literally impossible" is that I was trying to make a "hyperbolic statement."

  14. I am sad to announce that the canucks have a 0% chance of picking 5th overall :'(

      That just means we finally get a top 3 right!?!

  15. Who would you rather on your team? Eichel or Barzal or Rantanen

      Eichel, I think he's got the highest ceiling and the least support. Switch him teams with either of the other two and I think you're getting more offense. Not that Rantanen and Barzal are anything to sneeze at.

    3. Silky mitts

      Silky mitts

      Eichel easy, people sleep on him because of his injuries and he has barely any support . Franchise center

      Eichel.  I want the skill, but also someone who is hard to play against. The others are nice players, but too McSofty for my liking.
