  1. He was never going to make the team out of camp because Larsen was penciled in to run our PP from the moment we traded for him(which is absurd for a KHL castaway). Even though Stecher outplayed him at every turn, it didn't matter. I know we'll probably see Troy sooner rather than later and he will be playing big minutes, but it bothers me that based off of his play and the fact that Linden specifically stated they will take the best 23 players no matter what, that they still sent him down. My prediction: Larsen will show incapable of handling 5 on 5 play in the regular season and put on waivers in a few months and Stecher is up with the big club like he deserves.

    What a start to his pro career. He's averaging about 17 mins a night , leading the teams defencemen in scoring, fourth on the team in overall scoring.. On Pace to be the highest scoring D man since Edler in 2011-2012. Where would we be without this kid?!

    He's just remarkable to watch. Those pin point laser like stretch passes just make me giddy. He should have more points if we actually had forwards that could convert chances. More recognition of Hutton by NHL.com : http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=784325&navid=DL|NHL|home Super 16: Naming the All-Calder teamBen Hutton - Colton Parayko Griffin Reinhart - Trevor van Riemsdyk Noah Hanifin - Klas Dahlbeck " Parayko (St. Louis Blues) and Hutton (Vancouver Canucks) have had surprisingly strong starts. Neither was expected to be on an NHL roster at this point in the season, but both had strong training camps and that solid play has extended into the regular season. Hutton entered play Thursday averaging 18:49 of ice time through six games. Parayko is averaging 18:35 in seven games on a defense that also features Alex Pietrangelo and Jay Bouwmeester. He was elevated to a top-four role because of an injury to Kevin Shattenkirk. Both have three points."

    Hutton comes in at #7 on Craig Buttons top ten rookie list this year. Nice to see him get some praise and recognition: http://www.tsn.ca/video/nhl/nhl-season-preview-top-10-rookies~720136 His top ten is: 1. McDavid 2. Eichel 3. Bennett 4. Panarin 5. Larkin 6. Hanifin 7. Hutton 8. Parayko 9. Miller 10. Ehlers

    As much as I would love to see Sbisa replaced with Hutton, our D would be soft as hell. Edler shows flashes of physicality, but Sbisa is the only guy to bring it consistently

    Man oh man, what a player. He's probably been the Canucks best defenceman in the preseason and I'd argue he's currently the best offensive defenceman on our team. Is it possible he could be a top pairing defenceman down the line? It's preseason but man it's looking like the sky's the limit

    IMO they were just blowing smoke up our asses. I don't think they expected any of our guys to be ready and Lorne Hennings interview not long ago on tsn 1040 confirms as much. He said that all our young guys are at least a year away.

    They aren't related but Negrin's dad is the president of Aquilini Development and Construction Inc. Seems that he was given a shot on the comets as a favor to his dad. https://ca.linkedin.com/pub/david-negrin/20/869/555

    Listening to the Mid-Season town hall meeting on CDC, Trevor Linden mentioned a group of defenseman turning pro next year, and Ben Hutton was one of them. I think that they're going to try to make that happen, but it's tough to say if he actually will because obviously, it's ultimately up to Hutton.

    I think Kenins deserves a callup before Gaunce right now, but who knows, we just might get to see both

    Brendan Gaunce | C/LW

    I agree that we shouldn't trade Gaunce, but I don't see him as a C and neither have the last three coaches that he's played for. Also, Vey is only a rookie and still quite young. There are very very few rookie C's who are able to hold their own in the dot. With some further experience and summer training, he could at least be decent next year.
  13. From Botchford: Rollie Melanson is fairly pleased thus far with how Jacob Markstrom has fared in Utica, giving up just one goal in three games, with a .988 save percentage, while currently enjoying a scoreless streak of 172 minutes and 33 seconds I doubt theres anyone who knows where Markstroms at right now more than Melanson. Hes big time bullish on Markstrom after all the work the pair have put in and is confident he is poised to surprise people who doubt he can have a long, successful NHL career as a starter. He says he reminds him a lot of Ben Bishop.
  14. Do they ever reset? I have 2 lingering from at least 2-3 years ago.. On topic: looking forward to seeing Bo in action tonight, hopefully he's on one of the first two lines and gets ample opportunity!
  15. Country music star.. Never would have guessed lol
