    Tryamkin's return would put the finishing touch on, what should be, a revamped blueline. The timing would also be perfect as it would be right about when they're ready to start seeing playoff action again.
  2. Do we give Bo the "C"? POLL

    Bo may be young but he's not new to the NHL and has been tutored well in how an NHLer conducts himself on and off the ice. He's seen a lot of games in his young career and has plenty to teach inexperienced players trying to find their way in the pro game. At no time was his importance to this team better demonstrated than the significant drop in the teams play after his injury in December. It is no coincidence that both Baer's and Boeser's production began to drop following Bo's injury and the subsequent drop in team success. Bo may not be the top producer on this team, but he is the gear that powers it. He should, absolutely, get the captaincy.
  3. 1. The line of Baertschi, Horvat, and Boeser stays intact and scores 175+, combined, points. 2. Both Hughes and Pettersson end the season as Calder contenders. 3. Jake breaks out with a 40 point season.
  4. I'm also for keeping and getting more draft picks for next draft. It's amazing how two picks totally turned our opinions of our blueline's future. I can, totally, see Hughes and Woo as our top pairing of the future. Hughes is the offense and Woo is the physical backing that holds down the fort. Lovin it.
  5. I'm still curious about Hutton. I want to see how he responds to all the criticism he received last season. Hopefully, he uses it as motivation to improve his game and get back to what we saw from him in his first year. I also agree on Del Zotto. For the most part, he was completely ineffective.
  6. First Impressions of Quinn Hughes [VIDEO]

    The best thing about this whole offseason is that we're now debating who our best defenseman will be rather than where our defense will come from. It's amazing what one draft can do to a teams entire outlook.

    Thit is what we need in this lineup. Like Beagle, the price tag is a bit steep, but coming to a rebuild situation requires extra incentive. Glad to have him.
  8. Jay Beagle | #83 | C

    Yup, the price is steep, but that's to be expected when going from a champion to a build situation. Like the player, we're getting. Adds some much-needed veteran grind and championship experience. That experience will be greatly needed when we start getting back into the playoff picture.
  9. What ufa's should we go after?

    Hoping for a quiet offseason, as boring as that sounds. We have a lot of unanswered questions with our roster that need answers. 1. What do we, truly have in players like Virtanen, Goldy, Gaunce, Leipsic, Pouliot, Hutton, and Gaudette? 2. Where does Pettersson fit in the lineup? 3. What if players like Hughes and Dahlen prove worthy of spots? Where do they fit? 4. Is Markus Granlund a keeper or not? A full season of inactivity in the wheeling and dealing front will give management a chance to sort out the hackers and non-hackers. Going into next year's offseason with a clear understanding of what is on the wish list puts us in great position to draft or acquire players that fill those needs. As our roster stands, I see next season being a very exciting and interesting one. I don't believe we are in for a great season, wins and losses wise, but I do believe we will be greatly entertained with youthful energy. We have enough RFA's needing new deals that will get us to the cap floor.. For now I'd prefer if we stand pat and let next season play out as is.
  10. 2018-2019 - Line-Up - Trades to come ?

    There's a lot of question marks going into next season. I hope we're quiet on the ufa front for this very reason. There's a lot of sorting out to do with our young players. I'm expecting our lineup to, again look a lot different in 2019-2020. I'm expecting, at least, a couple roster players to be moved or be on the move as free agents by then. There's going to be a lot of competition for spots as it is. Hughes has said he feels he's ready now. A good pre-season may prove him right. I'm very excited to see how it all shakes out.
  11. Jett Woo | D

    Hughes was a great score but this guy brings much-needed physicality, in addition to some scoring punch, to our blueline. He matches well with any of our LHD. Love this pick.
  12. Quinn Hughes | D

    I think he's been quoted as saying he'd like to be starting next season in Vancouver.
  13. Quinn Hughes | D

    How about Tryamkin, Hughes? Be awesome watching the embrace after a goal. Be like watching a father hugging his son.
  14. (Report) CBJ shopping Panarin

    Very interesting. Under different circumstances, I'd say take a run at him, but I think we need to find out what we have in some of our current players before looking to outside options (Goldy, Virtanen, Dahlen, Pettersson, Gaudette, etc.).
  15. Totally agree. Other than Dahlin and Svechnikov at one and two respectively, the rest of the top ten looks to be a crapshoot.
