  1. I like that Gus is almost as young as Virtanen. Still just 18 years old and loads of time to develop into a strong PMD. Five points in the SEL so far bodes well for such a young player.
  2. Santorelli was one of the few bright spots in a bleak year. I was surprised he didn't get re-signed, and I expect it was due to some rift or disagreement rather than the money or term. Still, I wish it had happened. He would have rounded out our top 6 nicely. I for one don't regret the Vey trade. He's been solid, and he's much younger than Santo. I think he'll be a solid 2nd liner for us down the road.
  3. So when does Sanguinetti get a look? 14 points in 22 games and a real cannon (something we seem to lack this season).
  4. No Fun Vancouver indeed! Do you also hate puppies and sunshine and bacon? What a bunch of complainers. The Green Men are fantastic, I loved their shticks. Vancouver needs more passionate fans, not less.
  5. Bo will be fine. I do think he'll end up back with London this season though, they just want him to soak up some AHL experience.
  6. Foxy now sits at 7 points in 5 games. Blomstrand also with 7 in 5, and Curtis Valk is leading the ECHL with 9 points. Sounds like quick chemistry for that young group. All three seem too talented to play in that league for long. That said, the Comets seemed stacked at the moment. Can we have two AHL teams?
  7. I've always really liked Archie. I think he's got a decent shot at a permanent 4th line role this year. He's got the size the team wants, and a bit of scoring touch. Why not?
  8. Ehlers yes, Nylander no. Nylander apparently has attitude issues, and I don't think he has the game breaking skill that Ehlers does. I also think Ritchie is underrated in the speed and skill departments. I'd be happy if we selected him at 6.
  9. Agree with Kesler for Etem + 10th and drafting Virtanen. Ritchie - Virtanen and Horvat - Shinkaruk sets us up so nicely for the next 10 years!
  10. Realistically? Not many. Canucks have a history of promoting from within (AV, Nonis). But who knows?
  11. I think Laurence Gilman will be our next GM. Smart, cap savvy and lots of experience. Not a flashy move, but a good one.
  12. Wonder who gets the call up. I can't imagine they don't call someone up. Grenier, Pelletier or Archibald?
  13. Hunter is awesome! Slump or no slump, he's going to rip it up at the WJC's.
  14. Can't believe how many people aren't sold on Santo! He's been the most consistent forward we've got. Great speed, tenacity, scoring touch. Letting him go would be a HUGE mistake. I bet he re-signs for around $2 million per, which is a bargain for a guy who looks likely to put up a career year in points. If our prospects want to be on this team, they'll play their way in.
  15. A few years ago I'd have said no, but lately I am really seeing the benefit of a season in the ECHL. I'd agree that sending Jensen there would be a good idea. Grenier and Archibald are two players who clearly benefited from it. It's a great league for players to work on their scoring skills.
