  1. 1 - Canucks Finish 26th 2 - Boeser makes the team, plays on the first PP unit, scores 24 goals, doesn't win calder 3 - Bo Horvat wears an A full time, scores 25 goals, finishes with 60 points 4 - Daniel Sedin hits the 1000 point mark in December, finishes with 19 goals, 45 points, half of them on the PP 5 - Henrik Sedin finishes with 8 goals, 45 points - half of them on the PP 6 - Baertchi doesn't come to play at the start of the year and is a healthy scratch, evolves, works harder and nets 20 goals eventually. 7 - Thomas Vanek, plays with the twins on the PP, scores 26 goals, is traded at the deadline for a 2nd rounder 8 - Nilsson plays more games than Markstrom 9 - Juolevi plays in Utica all season 10 - Virtanen starts in Utica
  2. We would have had a log jam at centre. Obviously, the kid wants to play, and I don't think the Canucks were going to guarantee him anything
  3. I tend to agree here - Edler - Stecher Hutton - Tanev Del Zotto - Gudbranson Holm Biega No reason to rush Juolevi. Let him go to Europe for a year and find his game against larger, faster opponents, as well as bulk up. He can then come over next year either to the A or to the big club. We're not going to be competitive for at least another 3 years, no rush.
  4. Goldy! Bure 2.0! Hope he can net more goals than he causes against.....
  5. Honestly, I'd be surprised if Rodin sticks. His knee is never going to be 100% again.
  6. Fair enough, however the fact that the oilers signed those deals with McDavid and Draisaitl changes the landscape for other players. (Ie: Horvat, Pastrnak etc) Now these young rfas have some more bargaining power, you can now say, well I scored half the points that McDavid, therefore I am worth $6.25 million. Makes it harder. Especially if both sides in the Horvat discussions want a longer term deal...preliminary talks may have now gone out the window.
  7. 1. Linden 2. Bure 3. Luongo 4. Naslund 5. Sedins 6. Burrows 7. Adams 8. Bertuzzi 9. Jovocop 10. Lumme
  8. Great to see the Canucks finally signed their most important RFA! Oh...wait...
  9. Raymond, Ballard and a 1st.
  10. Soft is one thing, lacking elite 1st line and top pairing D players is what our problem is. Hopefully Petterson, Joulevi, and Dahlen grow into their potential.
  11. Baertchi - Horvat - Boeser Sedin - Sedin - Goldobin Eriksson - Gagner - Granlund Burmistrov - Sutter - Virtanen Edler - Stecher Hutton - Tanev Del Zotto - 'Real'Gudbranson You can interchange any of the forwards from the 6 spot through the 12 spot. TBH, it's a super weak forward group. As well as an average D Core. We will be lucky if we score more goals than last dynamic puck movers on the backend, (no Del Zotto doesnt count, Hutton is a turn over machine, Stecher shouldn't be having to shoulder that much ice time) limited game breaking skill up front. Boeser will be picked apart by top pairings of opposing teams, with no other major scoring threats throughout line up (no Horvat's toe drag doesn't count) And as much as we all hope to, you cannot pencil in Baertchi for 25 goals. Long time Canuck fan here, but also a realist. Here's to a top 5 pick in next summer's entry draft.
  12. Um - Top 6 centers and potential Top 6 centers don't become available to often - Much harder to obtain. Good job Benning.
  13. Great trade by Benning. Say what you want, but he's a great talent elevator, and he just got us a huge return for a player past his prime, who won't be here when we're contending again in 3 - 5 years.
  14. Elite prospect for an expiring contact. This a good trade.
  15. Haha - Pretty sure that he lead us to 2 straight presidents trophies and game 7 of the stanley cup final. Not really his fault that Malholtra didn't wear a visor and suffered an irreversible eye injury - or that Kesler blew apart his hip chasing down a puck on the forecheck against SJ after absolutely dominating the Nashville Predators. Or that Lu did everything in his power to keep us in games, but had no support in 4 out of the 7 games against a bruising Boston club. The window from 2009 - 2012 could have brought us a couple cups, but it didn't - the way the league allowed obstruction to creep back in really held back a team that had been assembled around it's puck moving and PP prowess. All of a sudden we were caught in a transition era of the league, and we saw big heavy teams getting the advantage again, such as Boston and LA. Hence why Gillis tried to scramble to up our grit - unfortunately, we came just short. Here's to the next 3 years of the rebuild, and a great next core featuring - Demko, Horvat, Boeser, Juolevi, Tryamkin & Stecher. Not to mention what we obtain out of the next couple of drafts. Benning is great at assessing talent in young players - that's why he was hired, ownership knows we had no prospects, due to the fact that we were a contender for so many years. Benning is doing exactly what he was, and is supposed to do. As fans, we have to be patient, rebuilds take time.
