  1. I'd do 7 and 37 for 9 and 26. We'd still get one of Dobson, Bouchard, Hughes, Boqvist, Wahlstrom, Kotkaniemi. NYR may do the deal as well depending on who they like, and who they think CHI will take at 8. Jumping from 37 to 26 would be huge.
  2. 37th overall

    Last year Columbus gave us the 2nd round pick, which was 55th and we took Gadjovich. The pick would have been 49th if Columbus waited until this year. Would you rather have Gadjovich with 1 year of development, or the 49th pick this year?
  3. [Rumour] Canucks interested in Hanifin

    Would you do the deal straight up Hanifin for 7? (I was responding to the 7+Demko in my post)
  4. [Rumour] Canucks interested in Hanifin

    Fair enough. I'm pretty high on Joulevi, I expect him to turn heads in camp this year. I feel he will be better than Hanifin, or whoever we pick at 7. I would include the pick in a deal before Joulevi. Just my opinion though.
  5. [Rumour] Canucks interested in Hanifin

    I would say a 21 year old with 240 games in the NHL is light years ahead of a 20 year old with 0 games for sure. I'm not advocating that we trade the 7th, or more for Hanifin, but I do think that is what needs to be offered for Carolina to even start the conversation. Building a deal around our 2nd will go nowhere.
  6. [Rumour] Canucks interested in Hanifin

    I can live with the 7th+ for Hanfin, but that plus cannot be Demko, Joulevi, Horvat, Petterssen, Boesser, Dahlen, or Virtanen.
  7. [Rumour] Canucks interested in Hanifin

    I don't think we get anywhere in negotiations for Hanafin without including at least the #7. I understand not wanting to do the deal if that is the case, but 30 other teams will have much on the table than our 2nd+. Would you trade Joulevi for a deal based around the 37th pick? I sure wouldn't, and Hanafin is light years ahead of Joulevi.
  8. What would it take to swap picks with them? After the third pick, everything seems pretty wide open. I could see Benning being set on his guy though. If he can move up without a huge cost to have a better chance, I'd like to see him jump at it.
  9. [Signing] Canucks sign Petrus Palmu

    Lots of solid NHLers have won the same rookie of the year award that Palmu just won: 16) Laine 14) Saros 13) Lehkonen 12) Teravainen 10) Granlund (Wild) Hopefully he shows well in the AHL next year. We are going to be more stacked with recent draft picks in Utica than ever before. Last year may shake out to be our best draft ever.
  10. [Rumour] Canucks interested in Hanifin

    I'd trade the 7th pick for Hanafin in a heartbeat. He is the player that we would hope Dobson or Bouchard become by 21.
  11. On draft day, we can't go wrong with any of our options, they are all very good prospects. Obviously there will be a few of them that don't live up to their potential, possibly even bust, but they all fill a need for us as of now. Bouchard& Dobson: Play solid all around games, and will contribute points from the back end Hughes & Boqvist: Dynamic offensive D, players that we have not had an abundance of over the years Wahlstrom: Another potentially elite scorer to go along with Brock and EP. We need D, but we also need scoring Tkatchuk: Big bodied power forward, provides some grit an toughness in the top 6. I am torn, and don;t have anyone that I really don't want in this range, as they all fill a need and any one of them could turn out to be the best of the bunch. I lean toward Boqvist, Hughes, or Wahlstrom, as I am hoping that the next core will play an uptempo, aggressive offensive game.
  12. Adam Gaudette | #88 | C

    I am really hoping that most of the young guys start in Utica unless they show so well in camp that it is impossible to keep them off the NHL roster. There will be enough roster movement throughout the year that i they earn NHL time out of Utica, they will get it. This would include Lind,Dahlen, Gadjovich, Gaudette, Demko and Joulevi. I do expect that Pettersson will make the jump right out of Camp. I think that having all of these young guys playing together in the AHL will allw them to develop and gel as a group before taking over the Canucks in a year or 2.
  13. I'd trade our 7th pick for Hanifin and as big a small add as we can get. He would fit in perfect with our team, and be starting to hit his prime in 2 years when we are looking to win. Carolina would then be able to pick from Wahlstrom, Kotkaniemi, or possibly Tkachuk to help with their forward core.
  14. My comment was just my opinion. I am certainly far from an expert on the topic. Most of what I have seen is a pretty consistent 15 names in the top 15, albeit in different orders. After 15 it is more of a crapshoot, Merkley and Wise for example are listed as top 20 in many places, and 2nd rounders in others.
  15. I don't think there is anyway that the Isles ever consider trading #11&12 to move up to 7. Of course we would do that at without hesitation. If you assume that Dahlin, Svech, Zadina, Tkachuk, Boqvist, Hughes, and Bouchard are all off of the board, you still get 2 of Wahlstrom, Smith, Hayton, Kotkaniemi, Wilde. I wouldn't be that shocked to see JB take Kotkaniemi or Wahlstrom at 7 anyway. We take that one and run. I wouldn't do the Flyers or Rangers deals, I think there is a pretty big drop off in talent after about 15.
