  1. I'm in the minority here but I believe we truly underate Kole Lind as a prospect. He's a terrific player who fell to us in the draft and yet there is barely any talk about him even in his prospect thread. People here thinking virtanen is our most underrated prospect is dumb. We all know what his potential could be it's just the media outside the Canucks which are already portraying him as a bust.
  2. The amount of hate I see on page 1 of this thread is ridiculous lol. I bet they aren't hating now.
  3. I felt that last night and I live in Alberta. I thought I was just going crazy at first lol.
  4. Price is the best goalie in the league and in his prime. If you want the best you gotta pay up. 10.5m isn't bad for a chance at the playoffs every year with any roster.
  5. What allowed the Canucks to grab him at 5 was simply the crazy high value for top 4 dmen this draft. I also agree with you in that it was just a tournament which he didn't play well. Which shouldn't make or break his career.
  6. I was trying to show the newfound depth we have even if the players are sent to Utica.
  7. Sedin-Sedin-Goldobin Baerstchi-Horvat-Boeser Granlund-Sutter-Erikkson Virtanen-Gagne-Rodin Dorsett, Gaunce, Boucher, Burmistrov Edler-Stecher Hutton-Tanev Del Zotto-Gudbranson Wiercioch, Pedan, Biega This lineup is what I want to happen and then sub in whoever is needed in terms of match ups. Benning got us lots of depth during free agency which is nice and some players which we don't need will probably be waived my guess is Boucher and Biega. Speed throughout the lineup which is key in today's NHL.
  8. I'm surprised this thread gets less attention than the gadjovich and palmu thread. I really like this pick and NHL.com has a nice article on our top 3 picks this draft using analytics to support these picks.
  9. Honestly I would say we are one of the winners. Didn't settle for an average scorer in vilardi. Didn't draft Glass who's a solid young player that's been on everybody's radar because he's in the chl. If Peterson was in the chl and Canadian he would've been a top 3 pick. I really like this draft and this was exactly the guy I wanted going in.
  10. Yes I love this pick
  11. We lost Tryamkin and Sbisa. If we lose Tanev that's 3 of our top 4 defencemen from last year gone. Benning also said he would want a D in return, that doesn't imply that he can't trade Tanev just that he needs someone to replace him + assets to make it worthwhile.
  12. Honestly this game looks the same as 17 plus a few new dekes and celebrations. I wanted GM connected back. NHL 14 is still the best NHL game that has come out.
  13. Vilardi, Necas, Heiskanen, Makar in that order. I originally thought highly of Glass but Necas played excellent during the WJC and you can really tell he's got high hockey IQ. I hope we get another top 5 pick via a trade involving Tanev but that probably won't happen.
  14. Who's got more value of the 2? I'm sure its Dumba since I haven't heard Brodin's name pop up that much.
  15. I like Morgan Frost as our 2nd round draft pick. Had a great combine is in really good shape. Also Norris had a great combine. Both those guys are very athletic and can put up numbers. I'd be fine with either honestly.
