  1. Sharks unveil third jersey

    Nice. Can't wait too see the Canucks in their retro black!
  2. I thought we would look a lot faster this year without the twins and we dont so far. We also really miss them on the PP. Our D offers zero offence and goes against where the rest of the NHL is trending. Hughes cant get here soon enough.
  3. I was the first to harp on Hutton after last year. But I agree its obvious he has put in a lot of hard work this summer. He looks way quicker and nimble with better stamina. Give the guy a chance people.
  4. Olli Juolevi | D

    This. MDZ gone at the deadline. OJ goes in.
  5. Quinn Hughes | D

    See the kind of shape Beagle showed up in? He will be fine for four more years and a steadying presence throughout the term. Its not like we are busting at the seams with center prospects trying to take his job in the next four years.
  6. Elias Pettersson | C/RW

    I agree with all this in the offensive zone. He is elusive and keeps his wits about him. Defensively though he has a ways to go with how to use his body to get a piece of the opponant when needed. Faceoffs may be a challenge as well. I hope they just give him the time to try to work it out. So we get some goals against out there this year with EP out there. Does it matter in the end? I dont see playoffs this year so a good year to let him grow at center. If he can just play even at center 5 on 5 and have success on the PP I would consider it a great first year.

    Can't be any worse can he? Never been a Nilsson fan. Swede for a Swede.

    Jordan Nolan on waivers after having signed two year one way deal with St Louis. That's quick to give up on a new signing. For the record I want the Nucks to have nothing to do with him. Dirty player.
  9. Guillaume Brisebois | D

    For sure. I meant more that he will eventually be an NHLer. Only one year pro for him so far. Agreed there is no rush.
  10. Need to get over the draft position. It's in the past. Get over it. There are two players drafted before him that I wouldn't trade Jake for. If he can turn into a 40 point player that backs up the D with speed and hits like a truck that's a hell of a player in my books. A tough to find player.
  11. My thoughts on Jake, who I am a fan of as well, are he still needs to mature. A guy like Bo is rare. He doesnt know the word content. He will never be content with his game. I feel Jake is still maturing and probably still content with the million dollar cheque, the singles lifestyle that a local, handsome rink hero gets to live. At some point I see him taking the next step in his maturity and wanting, really wanting to raise his game and ultimately, his pay cheque. He has the skills and I believe JB has no thoughts on moving the kid anywhere. The kid will be real good one day and JB, along with the fans, will want it to be in a Canucks jersey.

    The kid is carrying on from his strong performance in Penticton. He is on track to becoming an NHLer which looks like another successful pick by GMJB.
  13. I really like Gaunce and he seems like a great kid. I hope he can find a way to impress and stick with the club.
  14. This. This. This. We have the most unimaginative D corps in the NHL. Cant wait for Hughes.
