  1. What ufa's should we go after?

    You really seem to like Sbisa.
  2. 7th Overall: 2018 CDC Draft Consensus

    Wow! Well projected Alf.
  3. What ufa's should we go after?

    Who knows what counts as a turn-over.? Does a d-man coughing it up under pressure or blindly tossing it up the middle count the same as a chip off the boards/glass out of the zone or a flip clearing the zone to relieve pressure? I prefer the metric of "do I cringe when this guy gets the puck in our zone" stat.
  4. What ufa's should we go after?

    Watched a bunch. Thought Vegas got worse when Sbisa came back in the line-up. Merrill seemed more solid both ways to me. Sbisa's 12 games playes no doubt deflates the give-away stat. He's hot garbage - we're better off with what we have now and what's coming.
  5. Quinn Hughes | D

    It's funny, when Burke was commenting on Hughes 'small body' over and over P. Kane came to mind in his draft year. Watching Hughes highlights I kept seeing a D with forward like dangles and skating. I was skeptical about the D going in (thinking we were on the Dobson or Bouchard path), but now that I'm seeing what Hughes brings I think we got real, real lucky. I guess Detroit had no choice and had to take Zadina - I'm still pretty shocked though that they passed on an elite puck moving d-man. We are fortunate that the Yotes have such a heart-on for analytics - and that they already have OEL.
  6. What ufa's should we go after?

    Do the analytics people have numbers for guys who cough the puck up under pressure down low which leads to two goals that allow the other team to hoist the Stanley Cup? Cause if they do, Sbisa is probably #1 or #2 on that list.

    Apparently it's all contextual.
  8. 7th Overall: 2018 CDC Draft Consensus

    Well, whatever d-man the Canucks end up with... hopefully we end up with a Reilley, Lindholm, Dumba, or Trouba, and not Murray, Reinhart or Poulliot. Even though I really like Poulliot, #8 seems high in retrospect. It's my fear that we pick a Murray or Reinhart, who went #2 and #4 in 2012 for some reason, over the likes of the before mentioned group. 2015 was good - I'll take a Provorov or Werenski at #7/#8 - Hanifin went #5. Let's hope we grab a Werenski.

    I know. D men are generally harder to gauge; which is why I think they generally go later. Historically speaking top snipers are drafted high. It will be a shock if the team doesn't pick a d-man. Hopefully they can choose wisely (see OJ vs. Sergachev... time will tell) - though at 7 it may not be up to them. Likely one of Dobson, Bouchard, or Boqvist will end up in that spot. All the d-man horniness might create an opportunity for the Canucks.
  10. 7th Overall: 2018 CDC Draft Consensus

    I agree. I was curious as to where the skilled, elite talent on Washington was drafted and none of their d-men were high first round picks. Their most effective offensive d-man, Carlson, was taken 27th overall. Djoos - 7th round; Niskanen - 28th overall; Orlov - 55th; Orpik - 18th; Kempny - undrafted As to their skilled forwards, much higher; although even Oshie and Kuznetsov were late first round. Seems to me it's more likely to draft an elite forward high than a d-man, but we're real horny for D - with good reason. All these supposed 'great' d-men available scare me. If you do pick one over the likes of a guy like Walhstrom, I hope the scouting team chooses wisely. Easier to acquire D through trading and free agency than a pure sniper.
  11. 94 & 2011 SCF Run

    I'd rather see the finals - mind you if they had lost to the Hawks we might not be in rebuild mode now.
  12. Playoff Hockey : Still a street fight. CANUCKS ARE YOU WATCHING ?

    Agreed. Right now the teams winning are the fast, skilled teams playing with grit. Slow, "big", goon squads like LA and Anaheim are looking like hot garbage. Toronto got dirty with the cross-checks in game 3; guess the league felt bad for them. Winnipeg plays heavy, but is loaded with skill. Minnesota matched in the last game. The playoffs thus far have highlighted three keys to success: (1) speed, (2) defence, (3) goaltending. The 3-1 goal in the Vegas/LA game was bad d-zone coverage coupled with Smith's speed (and early jump off the face-off).
  13. [PGT] Columbus Blue Jackets vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Gaudette looking like a young Ryan Kesler. Motte reminiscent of a fledgling Marty Gelinas. Goldy like Hansen with hands. Sautner like a young Juice.
  14. Ashton Sautner | #59 | D

    Sautner is reminding me of a young Kevin Bieksa.
  15. Erik Gudbranson | #44 | D

    This will end up being a good deal. Length is good, amount is high for me, but on a rebuilding team with a low cap it won't matter. The contract makes him traded easily if it ends up that way, but with little in the defensive cupboards that's highly unlikely. Does this mean that Benning has found a buyer for Tanev?
