  1. 2018 Canucks Summer Development Camp

    Yup he definitely looks bigger than when he got drafted. I'm excited to see how he does in college.

    Hahaha. Brackett agrees.

    I'd say he's a tier below Hughes. Quinn can just make plays so effortlessly. Rathbone is a great high-end skater but isn't quite as smooth as Hughes. I will say though that Rathbone has a cannon of a shot. That's one area where He has an advantage over Hughes. But in every other area Hughes is at another level.

    Just got back from the game. Loved what I saw from Madden, Palmu, Lind, and Dipietro. Some of the camp invites looked good too (Soy, McMaster, Lukosevicius). Hughes had a slow start to the game but when he started getting the puck more you can really see why he stands out from everyone else. He effortlessly skates himself out of trouble and has pretty nifty hands. Super stoked to see him on our roster in the near future. The one guy who really surprised me today was Jack Rathbone. This guy can really skate and he moves the puck extremely well. He's also got a cannon of a shot from the point. Really excited about this guy and he might be a steal in the 4th round of the 2017 draft.

    I agree 100% I was at the game too and loved how well Rathbone moves the puck. He's got elite skating ability and he can absolutely hammer the puck. This might be the diamond in the rough from the 2017 draft.

    Is the game going to be a full 60 minutes?
  7. First Impressions of Quinn Hughes [VIDEO]

    Buddy guy that's hectic bro
  8. Torres, malhotra, samuelsson, hamhuis, even Demitra despite his injuries. Also Vrbata (the 1st year of his contract)
  9. As good of a role player Roussel is, would you rather sign him to a 4 year deal, or get Schaller for 2 years at a cheaper price? I know who I'd pick.
  10. This will be a good signing for the Canucks. People out there are getting too worked up about the term and salary when the Canucks are in a good cap situation, and are not expected to compete for at least a couple of years. Here's what I think the projected line up will be: Goldobin - Horvat - Boeser Baertschi - UFA - Pettersson Granlund - Sutter - Eriksson Roussel - Beagle - Virtanen Gaunce, Gagner Edler - Stecher Juolevi - Tanev Del Zotto - Gudbranson Pouliot - Biega (Hutton traded; Hughes to Utica) Markstrom Nilsson
  11. 7th Overall: 2018 CDC Draft Consensus

    Hughes Boqvist Wahlstrom

    You can argue that Dobson and Bouchard are the safer choices. But when you draft in the top 10 you should be looking at BPA - or those who have a high ceiling. Boqvist and Hughes Have elite skating ability and are great puck movers. These aspects are extremely important in today's NHL. I feel like people are too caught up in Bouchard's offensive numbers that they overlook the holes in his game, most importantly his skating. At least with Dobson he has offensive upside, defends well, and is a great skater.

    Temper your expectations budz. Just kidddingggg. Man i can't wait for training camp.
  14. Olli Juolevi | D

    When you talk about elite skating and pure skill, then yes Boqvist and Hughes do have higher potential.
  15. Olli Juolevi | D

    Exactly! Whenever you're picking high, especially in the top 10, you want to draft the guys with the most skill and the higher ceiling. Guys like Dobson and Bouchard have a higher floor, but guys like Boqvist and Hughes have a much higher ceiling.
