  1. Elias Pettersson | C/RW

    I don’t get the love for Gaunce. He can’t score, can’t pass, doesn’t hit hard, doesn’t use his size well, can’t step in and win face offs. He’s just a gentle big guy who can play defence. I’d rather give that spot to Archie at least he can skate, throw hits, stand up for teammates, and actually score a couple goals.

    Rathbone looking faster than Hughes. Really like Woo’s physicality and decision making.
  3. 2018 Canucks Summer Development Camp

    He’s been good so far. He’s making a terrific first pass and getting up to the forwards quick. Team blue really lacks skill from the forwards, he would look way better with forwards who knew what they are doing like Lind and Palmu.

    Wow Palmu has a terrific skill set. Looks like Patrick Kane out there haha

    I would do Ennis plus a second for any one of our cheap wingers that we don’t need moving forward, seems fair to me. I believe toronto did multiple of these cap dump trades where they got picks out of it.
  6. Quinn Hughes | D

    Looking at our d-core right now no one brings the speed and skill that Hughes has. I believe he’s going to surprise in camp and be miles ahead of everyone else in terms of speed and skill from the backend. Hard to say no to that. I think he’s ready to get games in the nhl this year. Hopefully he signs a contract and can shuffle between the nhl and ahl .
  7. Canucks Top Ten prospects (Updated for 2018-2019)

    Wow our prospect pool is so much better than a few years ago and to think it doesn’t include any of the youngster currently on the Canucks who can further develop like Virtanen, Goldobin, Granlund, Baerstchi, Boeser is just insane. We are building a very similar team to the caps. A couple very elite players in every position mixed in with skill and size throughout the lineup! Exciting times to be a Canuck fan!
  8. [GDT] 2018 NHL Entry Draft

    Noel would be insane at 37. Adds a lot of size and skill to our team to go with the smaller skilled players. Noel, Virtanen, Gadjovich all in the top 9 would be very scary for the opposition!
  9. Olli Juolevi | D

    All he said was $&!#, which is not a big deal haha. You can tell he was frustrated but I don’t think it was excessive.
  10. 2018 NHL Entry Draft

    Wow this draft is going to be very interesting. If Kotkaniemi or Kravtsov go in the top 5 we could have tons of options at 7. At that point I’m no sure who I’d draft.. probably Dobson or Boqvist.
  11. Olli Juolevi | D

    I highly doubt he trades the 7th pick unless it’s for a slightly older promising prospect like Hanifin. I read an article the other day about rumours of Jim using the pick as trade bait. The article also highlighted all of Bennings mistakes and not his achievements in his time here. People should have faith as since his first year he’s made very good decisions besides the Loui contract. Even that contract doesn’t look as bad considering we have tons of space. Back to the thread though I’m sure Joulevi is going to play lots of NHL games this year and we’re going to be competing for the 1st pick again.
  12. 2018 NHL Entry Draft

    This draft would be the ideal time to get another mid to late 1st round pick. Lots of talented offensive defencemen going this draft. That would lead us to getting a more complete defencemen like Dobson or Bouchard. Or even a skilled forward like Wahlstrom with our 7th overall pick.
  13. A Case to Draft Oliver Wahlstrom

    This guy would be a monster in playoff hockey. He’s throwing some big hits and has tons of skill. Imagine him and Virtanen with Gaudette on a line. For those saying boqvist I’d prefer Dobson over him for a few reasons. Dobson is much taller and will grow into his frame in a few years, and he also put up fairly better numbers in his junior year than joulevi did. Look at Winnipeg size with skill and speed is deadly. At the end of the day I’d be happy with Dobson or Wahlstrom, I’d be disappointed with Boqvist.
  14. 2018 NHL Entry Draft

    BPA at 7 in my opinion would be Wahlstrom. He had a terrific season and his elite scoring ability falling to 7 is very rare just because this draft is loaded with top defencemen. I feel we should go for defencemens from the 2nd round forward.
