  1. Get more oil flowing please. I'll be dead before the climate makes life impossible for most humans, so what do I care. (sarcasm*)

    I disagree. He's too fast and too elusive.

    2018 NHL Entry Draft

    I believe it starts at 4:30, not 5:00.

    Acording to Bob McKenzie ( Picks 5 through 8)

    Tkachuk has no silent t in the middle of his name. Hughes has an e between the h and the s. Boqvist has a v (not a u) after the q. I like to spell people's names correctly out of respect for them.

    2018 NHL Entry Draft

    I'm trying to understand why various official sites that post mock drafts tend to see Tkachuk as a top 5 pick whereas many posters at the hockey forums seem to feel that he shouldn't be picked until somewhere near 10 or so? He looked like a top 5 pick at the U20s but in college only 8 goals, and people watching him say he is not noticable in many of his games. It will be interesting where Bob Mac's final list has Tkachuk. If Canucks pick at 7, I predict he will be gone, which will be a relief to me because I don't want to experience missing out on yet another Tkachuk that turns out to be better than our pick.

    Aflives, it's not Dhalen. It's DAHLEN, which is the spelling that appears in the post above yours.

    So, 5'11, 170lbs at age 17 is tiny? Not in my world.

    Elias Pettersson | #40 | C/RW

    At the beginning of the previous season, Pittsburgh was the 27th heaviest team in the league (I just looked it up), meaning they were lighter than the average team.

    [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Calgary Flames

    I haven't read this whole thread, so forgive me if this has already been said. But the Sedin 2 on one goal showed me that the current narrative that the Sedins are kind of embarassing might be premature. I'm sure they have a pride in their abilities, and I'm sure they want people to know they still have something to offer. That goal suggests it might be a wee bit early to not look to them for offense. They will never be what they once were, but lets hope that they continue to contribute.

    Too early to arive at any conclusions.

    Individual Top 10 Canuck prospect Rankings

    Jake could turn it around next year, but his current trajectory does not suggest he is likely to do so. That's what I am talking about. And if you think I am the only hockey fan on Hockey's future league wide boards that would at this moment take a prospect like Lind or Gaudette over Jake, you would be wrong, In fact, many would make the same choice as I would. This is my opinion. You are free to yours. This is my last post on this topic.

    Individual Top 10 Canuck prospect Rankings

    So I see Virtanen being listed at about number 7 on most lists. Those posters that see him there could be right, but I bet if you asked people from various other boards to list the top 10 prospects for the Canucks, almost none of them would have Jake in the top ten. He is widely used as an example of a big, fast player who is a bust because of low hockey IQ in posts not about Jake. Next year should make it clear who is right, and yes it is too early to call him a bust. But I have to say that at this point in time I would rather hang on to prospects such as Gaudette, Lind and Gadjovich over Virtanen. How about you? Would you currently keep Jake over any of those three if your hand was forced?

    Elias Pettersson | #40 | C/RW

    We should be happy Pettersson is only 165 pounds. Add even 15 pounds to his weight, and I doubt he would have been available at 5. The good news is his weight is on an upwards trajectory since he says he's gained 10 or 12 pounds over the previous year. When I read about him, it sounds like his skill level and hockey IQ is up there with Hischier and Patrick. I'm looking forward to following him over the next 2 years. After that, I wouldn't be surprised to see him playing for the Canucks.
