  1. Olli Juolevi | D

    Didn't really see him use it actually. Mostly during the wrister.
  2. Olli Juolevi | D

    Juolevi doesn't really seem to have any glaring weaknesses in his game. In comparison to some of our recent top picks, there always seemed to be one deficiency. Hodgson had poor skating, Schroeder lacked size, Virtanen/Kassian lacked hockey sense, Horvat lacked explosive skating, and Petterson is/was under weight. Of all of our top prospects, I'd be willing to bet that Juolevi has the highest probability of success in the NHL. Probably not a franchise calibre player, but he'll definitely key piece to a cup contender.
  3. Elias Pettersson | C/RW

    Patrick is playing in the NHL against way more difficult competition. Remember Hodgson and Schroeder lighting up the WJC and then failing in the NHL?
  4. Can the Canucks still compete for a playoff spot ?

    That four game losing streak really did them in. While we're likely done for the playoffs, there were a lot of positive developments this year. (Boeser, and Pouliot). Landing another Top 5 pick could really set the franchise up for success within the next 2-3 years.
  5. Canucks attendance hits lowest since 2001, fans are not buying tickets

    As someone said earlier, all the young players that we have that are able to play in the NHL are here. Signing the vets wasn't a desperate attempt to sell tickets or make the playoffs. It was to buy time for development, and to shelter the young players that we do have playing here. I live in Edmonton, and I've seen the consequences of rushing players, intentionally tanking, and missing the playoffs for the decade.
  6. [PGT] Ottawa Senators vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Canucks seem to be holding their own against 2 really good teams. Game could have gone either way.
  7. I remember he was a potential trading chip in a Kesler deal.
  8. Voted NJ. They seem to be at a similar stage in their rebuild.
  9. Bieksa, and D-men who have been traded (Discussion)

    I thought we did really well for getting 2nd round picks for Bieksa and Garrison. Bieksa had his best years as a canuck, and we were able to get assets out of him when he was on the decline. As for Willie Mitchell, He probably would have been a welcome prescence in 2011, but we were transitioning to an all out attack team. We needed good skating defensemen. Plus we had a lot of defensemen back in 2011. Edler, Ehrhoff, Salo, Bieksa, Hamhuis, Ballard, and a rising Tanev. The defensemen we really missed though.... Sami Salo. We lost Ehrhoff and Mitchell, and went on two win president's trophy anyway. Salo was probably one of the most underrated defensemen in Canucks history. We seemed to never really recovered after losing him.
  10. Nicklas Jensen Talk

    For anyone who follows the comets, what kind of deployment did Jensen get in Utica? Was he generally put in the top-six or on the third line? Did he get PP time?
  11. Hunter Shinkaruk Talk

    Well, a lot of non-Benning picks have gotten praise from this administration. Markstrom, Gaunce, Hutton, Grenier, etc. Corrado is a lock to make the team. Horvat and Kenins made it last year despite being non-Benning pickups. Shinkurak didn't play bad, but the only likely positions up for grabs are checking position. It's more a manner of fit than performance. Anyways, I'm surprised by the cut because there is still a lot of preseason left. It would have been a big confidence booster for the kid to be around longer.
  12. Jake Virtanen | #18 | RW

    He def brings something different than all of our other prospects. Speed, Size, and plays with an edge. Gaunce and Jensen are okay, but don't bring what Virtanen brings.
  13. Jake Virtanen | #18 | RW

    Good pick. He's exactly what the canucks will need moving forward. Young, fast, strong, and he has a mean streak.
  14. Jared McCann Talk

    Horvat - McCann will be the next Bergeron - Krejci
  15. Jake Virtanen | #18 | RW

    Strange, he doesn't look like he's 228 lbs. The size and speed would do wonders to our lineup.
