  1. What we need to become Contenders

    I’d love to see Virtanen grow into a 2nd line winger (skill, speed and grit) and the 1st line winger (aaa) also needs grit (like a E. Kane without character issues) to balance a relatively soft top 6. I think the bottom 6 could pretty much be as you’ve outlined. Gadjovich could be an option for bottom 6. Hoping for trades to increase picks and some better luck at the draft next year (although getting Hughes this year was awesome luck and unexpected).
  2. What ufa's should we go after?

    Actually it wasn’t. Most liked the signing but not the term.
  3. Benning is doing a great job! (Discussion)

    If these signings mean we trade Sutter + for picks then it makes more sense. Are any of these signings two-way or just one-way?

    4 years for a 33 year old (in October) is a head scratcher. Can anyone explain the rationale (aside from trying to trade before the term ends)?

    Could someone please explain the rationale for signing a 33 year old (in October) for 4 years (aside from trading before the contract is up)?

    I don’t disagree and I’m also happy with Woo; I also expect a free agent signing as well. Tryamkin does bring something to the D that we don’t have much of and I’d love to see (size, immovability, thunderous hits). I just see lists posted here expecting his return and we have to plan as if he’s not coming back but be thrilled if he does.

    I think we all want him back here but it’s not within our control. He called Vancouver a druggie city and his wife was homesick. We can’t plan on his return or “pencil him into the lineup”. I agree our top 4 would finally look good with him, Juolevi and Hughes.

    Agreed.

    I used the term because it is the one you had used in saying that he was not undersized. He is a standard deviation shorter than average. There are two different issues here: (1) whether he is smaller than average, which you disputed but your chart supports; and (2) whether that is a problem. I’m very happy with the pick despite him being shorter than most (and he may grow) whereas I cannot in my wildest dreams imagine our 5’7” 135 lb pick not getting crushed in the NHL. Cheers.

    I agree completely. What I was commenting on was Samurai’s statement that Hughes was not undersized based on a chart he posted.

    http://lastwordonhockey.com/2018/06/24/2018-nhl-draft-grades-part-4/ The Canucks get a B+ for this draft.
  13. [GDT] 2018 NHL Entry Draft

    I've got a question for you, Samurai. While I agree that being fast helps compensate for being smaller and I'm very happy with our pick, the chart that you posted on average height and weight suggests that 5'10" and 170 pounds is about one standard deviation below average for the NHL. Doesn't that suggest that Hughes IS undersized compared to most NHLers?

    Think you’re confusing me with someone else. Also, there have been media stories about her hating Vancouver, coupled with his complaints about playing time. I want to see him here as much as any Canuck fan but we can’t count on it. His recent comments about Vancouver were lukewarm and non-committal.l

    This gives new meaning to midget hockey.
