  1. Is there a difference in leadership?

    I hope Edler doesn't take over. It seems every d-man that enters our team he tries to coach and then runs their offensive gameplay into the ground. Hutton played amazing when he first came onto the scene and I remember watching videos on mic'd up where Edler flat out told him to not be as creative offensively. He had to play a "steady" defensive game at a cost of his offense, which helped his defensive game. Hutton went from a player who confidently carried the puck up the ice to throwing out pizzas trying to make the safe play off the boards every time.

    No doubt. Nothing on players. Repetitive commentary on something not related to the prospects. No stats, no rankings... Hot trash.

    Now at #186
  4. 2018 NHL Entry Draft

    Looks like we traded down but not for a pick in this draft.
  5. 2018 NHL Entry Draft

    What happened to our pick? I thought we were next up to pick before the commercial...
  6. Toni Utunen | D

    Offensive d-man? What kind of player is he? I know nothing of this kid.
  7. 2018 NHL Entry Draft

    Same. Hughes was my second pick, because I think this team has needed dynamic offense from the back end and both of them have that ability. Hughes was the safer pick for the offensive production, however both players I thought were necessary. I wasn't high on Dobson or Bouchard. They'll be good but I think they'll end up being 3rd of 4th d-men with a small chance of becoming a #1. With Hughes I think he'll end up a #2, or #1 if we luck out. Interesting 2nd and 3rd picks though. I wanted Woo at the beginning of the year, but I hope he ends up working his way back into more of a two-way as opposed to a defensive d-man. I like Madden for the third pick. I want this team to return back to the speed and skill team that got us to the finals.
  8. Acording to Bob McKenzie ( Picks 5 through 8)

    Would you guys consider trading down this draft? I think I might.
  9. Can Benning nail the pick?

    This year it should be hard to screw up the draft. It's pretty damn deep for what we are looking for. However I think if we take Bouchard I feel we will be seeing Juolevi 2.0
  10. Acording to Bob McKenzie ( Picks 5 through 8)

    Even taking away from Bouchard's skating, the reason people are fearful of him is because he is too similar with Juolevi. His offense isn't dynamic. He's racking up powerplay points on a good powerplay team and bloating his stats. You have to be dynamic at the nhl level. In the CHL you don't.
  11. Draft Lottery

    Expect 9th. It'll hurt less.

    Awesome job. Nice editing skills!
  13. THIS IS THE DAY, Canucks get #7

    I'm surprised you think Stech struggles with D. I think he's consistently in our top 3 even when Tanev and Edler are playing well. Rarely does he have a bad game on defense in my opinion. His IQ makes up for his size. Gets good positioning, has a good active stick and isn't lazy like Edler in his own end.
  14. THIS IS THE DAY, Canucks get #7

    If Boqvist is available at #4, I'd finally be on board for trading Tanev and our first to get him if we're sitting 7th. And I HATE the idea of trading Tanev.
  15. Viking clap.. Our new cheer?

    Whatever new thing the rest of the hockey world will steal from us I'm game for.
