    I can't wait to watch this young group of players develop. Been a fan since team inception and have to admit this is the best depth and quality the prospect pool has ever been.

    Would imagine that is pretty accurate. Who do you think 1 and 2 would have been? I am thinking Dahlin for sure but I think he may have taken Hughes second. Svechnikov would have been pretty tempting though.

    Pretty excited about and for this player. Whether this year or next Benning and the Canucks hit the jackpot. I wonder if this is the player Benning would have chosen first overall?

    I do appreciate your posts. Cheers.

    I looked back at what I posted and I am not certain where I poo'd on him (or did i offer a different or varying opinion) if you could, please point it out. It was not my intention and I would like to correct it.

    Alf needs to get out more. Only in your case the movie is called Pawloose

    Maybe not in your case but some of the joking/mocking can get pretty ugly fast and the piling on ensues. As you are a respected poster and tend to be a tone setter I thought you would understand the phenomenon. If I offended you personally I offer my genuine apology. It won't happen again.

    Double post.

    Thanks I did know that. I get genuinely concerned for these "kids". I have billeted some and know how seriously success and failure can both affect them. I know Hughes will be a very good player. I also know that he is 18 and time is on his side. But would I love to see him play next year (and succeed) - ABSOLUTELY! PS: if the Kevin Bacon was too much I do have others that may be more acceptable Just yanking your chain......

    Here are my quotes. Tell me where they are negative: "I believe he could play in the NHL now. But a year of more practice than games, access to a weight room and trainer and time to work on things like his shot by returning to College for one more year may be the better long term option." "I would love to see him turn pro now - what a story. But a year to develop more and mature may pay some real benefits. Hate to see him get chewed up by the Vancouver media and some fans at the tender age of 18/19 if he doesn't initially live up to the hype." You seem to joke (mock) a lot of other peoples comments at their expense. This is a discussion forum and people should be able to express their opinions without being mocked or ganged up on. It is basically a form of bullying. My post was meant to be funny as well

    Amazing how full of yourself you can appear to be. People like you like to spout your opinions, pile up the likes like high school girls on snap chat and mock those who have a differing opinion. If you don't agree fine. No need to be a child. Oh I forgot you played hockey my bad and have now gone on to become a very successful......... Dance double for Kevin Bacon in Footloose? Hughes is going to be a very good player. But frankly those stats below don't scream generational to me.

    I get that but it is a long 82 game NHL season and the dog days can come especially if the team is not playing well. I just think a year of development and more practice/gym time would not be a bad thing for his preparation. I say this out of concern for the player and the Canucks long term.

    That may work. I personally would like to see: Edler - Gudbranson Hughes - Tanev Juolevi - Stecher Pouliot - Biega Not to start the year but perhaps by the trade deadline if Del Zotto and Hutton can be moved. If Hutton can outplay Pouliot so be it. I don't think Edler will be moved (waive). I could actually see him sign an extension.
