  1. Really excited about this! He'll have the opportunity to play plenty of games this year in Barrie. As far as I know, Jet Greaves will be the only real competition in the crease for him. Barrie is only about a 20 minute drive from my place, so I'll try to get out and see him play as much as possible!
  2. Rick Dhaliwal on air saying over the past few days he's been hearing from multiple sources that the Canucks have been aggressively pursuing Tyson Barrie in trade talks with Colorado.
  3. At 6 its gotta be Zegras. As for the cost I have no idea. I guess it comes down to how much Detroit values their guy at 6 over their guy at 10 and how many other teams are trying to move up.
  4. NMC or full NTC? Haven't seen anything reported on that yet. Think its safe to assume with a deal like that he probably has full trade protection.
  5. I've been stressing about this for so long. I love Lu, he's a national treasure, but I am praying this stupid rule doesn't handicap this team. Every other player in this situation has ended up on LTIR, but it would be very Canuckish if we were the first team to get hammered with the cap recapture.
  6. It would shocked if Benning pulled the trigger on that, but I wouldn't be upset about it. He is an unbelievable prospect and then we could actually be comfortable including Markstrom, Demko, or DiPietro in a trade package. Not the move I would make.... but a justifiable one that could pay off big.
  7. I think I found Broberg being at 15 behind Soderstrom the most interesting. The fact that Soderstrom, Broberg, Seider, Harley, and York are ranked side by side from 14-18 shows that there is absolutely zero consensus in the defensemen rankings from team to team after Byram. I think from 5 to about 20 this could be one of the craziest drafts ever with unexpected picks and teams trading up and down. Is it Friday yet?!
  8. https://www.tsn.ca/americans-set-to-dominate-first-round-of-the-nhl-draft-1.1323878 Bob McKenzie's final consensus draft rankings are out.
  9. It was reported that the Canucks were brining in 2-3 prospects for extended interviews this past week as well as meeting again with Zegras closer to the draft. Newhook and Krebs were confirmed to be 2 of the prospects brought in. It could just be those 3, or as reported, there could be a 4th that we haven't heard about yet.
  10. Why's that? I think you could argue that maybe Boldy's ceiling isn't quite as high as some of these other guys, but I also think his floor is probably the highest. Zegras really excites me. The combined creativity and hockey IQ of Zegras and Pettersson paired with Boeser's finishing ability would be something to see
  11. Cheers mate! Love hearing the stories of how people became Canucks fans. Thanks for sharing! I think you're absolutely right in that Caufield and Podkolzin have two of the highest ceilings of the players that could realistically be available for us at 10. However, I don't think those are the only two that could end up being great players for us. I'm personally a big fan of Zegras, Krebs, Newhook, and Boldy as well. I agree with your evaluation of the defensive pool though. The only way I'd like us to come out of the first round with a defenseman is in a trade down scenario. If we could trade down a few spots from 10 and come out with 2 of Seider/Soderstrom/Tomasino/Lavoie/Dorofeyev/Poulin, I would consider that a big win.
  12. I would be okay with Broberg at 10. I wouldn't have the same level of excitement and comfortability as I'd have with one of the 4 aforementioned forwards though.
  13. Voting is done before playoffs start, so Binnington's playoff performance is irrelevant.
  14. Couldn't agree more. The achilles injury scares me a little bit, but I would love Krebs at 10. There are many guys that I would be okay with us picking at 10, but the 4 realistic options I would be most excited about are in no particular order; Krebs, Zegras, Boldy, and Newhook. My ranking of those 4 guys changes almost daily haha!
  15. The intrigue is 100% warranted. His ceiling is sky high, but there is no other prospect rated in the first round that has as many hurdles to jump in order to approach that ceiling. In that sense he is very similar to Ryan Merkley of last years draft. I'd expect him to get drafted in a similar position too, likely in the 18 to 25 range. Could go a tad higher if a team is confident they can fix him as you mentioned, could fall right out of the first if he totally bombed interviews.
