  1. Jake didnt come to camp in shape so he should sit. Ferland has been out so long he should be eased back into game action. Sutter is also getting back from injury so he should be eased back into game action. Jake performs better when he is desperate to play so having him watch the first couple games will help get his mind into game mode. All that said any of those guys will be ready to slot in if someone gets injured or they don't play well.
  2. Miller Pettersson Toffoli Pearson Horvat Boeser Roussel Gaudette MacEwan Eriksson Beagle Motte Sutter Ferland Virtanen - when someone in the starting lineup has a bad game Green can start cycling these guys into the roster Edler Stetcher Hughes Tanev Fantenburg Myers Markstrom Demko
  3. I saw Branstrom play at the world jrs. live in Victoria. I watched him very closely, he was the most dominant player in the tournament in my opinion. Hughes a close second. Branstrom is just getting started. He will be elite in the NHL
  4. You laugh but give Branstrom a couple years and he will be an elite defence man with IMO more value than Boeser
  5. I would consider this trade Boeser to Ottawa for Erik Branstrom
  6. I would argue that Canucks win this trade by quite a bit. Personally I have been really high on Lias Anderson and I think he still has potential to be an awesome second line centre kind of like Kessler. Still a lot of work to do for him to do and I think he needs to give his ego a big check but I still view him as a solid prospect. Anthony Deangelo is an offensive minded 24 year old right shot defence man who skates and moves the puck really well. 2019/2020 he had 15 goals, 38 assists and 53 points. Compare that to our own Quinn Hughes who had 8 goals 45 assists and 53 points. It gives you an idea for the kind of player he can become and he is only just getting started. What we would loose is Baertchi who doesn't really have a spot on our team, Tanev who is a pending UFA and Juolevi who is still learning the fundamentals. I still think D Angelo would be a great fit on our team and we would benefit from having an extra C prospect. I don't think this was a bad trade proposal for us and for you to suggest so much that Im a "hall of fame" on NYR boards just goes to show how little you know about hockey. Maybe stick to Tour de France
  7. I personally think Motte is our most under rated player. He plays with such tenacity and does so many little things right. He is creates a lot of scoring chances its just he and his line mates don't excel in finishing. I would like to see Motte get a chance in the top 6 in a Burrows type role Just to switch things up a bit Miller Horvat Toffoili (3 checking/ 3 scoring/ 2 playmaking 3 defence) Horvat needs wingers who can make plays and score Motte Pettersson Boeser (1 checking/ 2 scoring/ 2 playmaking/ 2 defence) Motte will be like a Burrows player who compliments the line with his energy and defence Pearson Gaudette Leivo (3 checking/ 3 defence) Roussel Sutter Virtanen (3 checking/ 1 scoring/ 2 defence) - Virtanen should play with guys that are smart defensively Eriksson Beagle Ferland MacEwan Baertschi - Forward playoff options
  8. Anything can happen in the playoffs. But from a historical perspective I don't want the first cup this team wins in ages to be on a year like this. I would honestly rather we loose the first round and get a top 3 draft pick. Then win the cup next season when guys like Podkolzin and Hoglander might make an appearance
  9. I thought I remember Green saying he wanted 2 way players on the wing. Eriksson can still go out in a penalty kill and thats what Green wanted in his bottom 9 wingers. Baertchi had a bad concussion and I think Utica was a chance for him to get back to normal game play and also maybe add being a 2 way player. Canucks didn't want him to get to comfortable in his spot. The also signed Ferland who they thought could play top 6 wing minutes. It would be nice to see Baertchi get a fair shot again with the Canucks. He has proven at times to be a player that creates offence and scores goals.
  10. I'm hearing Calgary is very interested in acquiring Brendan Leipsic. They like what they see in him
  11. If i could vote on this I would want Judd Bracket as the teams new GM for the 2021 season!
  12. If the NHL stays on pause longer than expected Eriksson might just decide to call it a career. This would work out well for the Canucks
  13. I always liked Cody Eakins game. High energy, team guy, plays smart defensively, can chip in offensively,
  14. Nothing to credible just someone at the dog park said a doctor told them this. Take it for what is. Just trying to give people a heads up if their is any truth to it
