  1. It is a bit hard calculating what our depth looks like when we don't know the make up of our actual roster. In my mind it looks like this: Baertschi Horvat Boeser Eriksson Gagner Pettersson Roussel Sutter Virtanen Gaunce Beagle Granlund Edler Gudbranson Stetcher Tanev MDZ Hutton Spares: Goldobin, Leipsic, Pouliot IR: Schaller (if Schaller comes back and assuming a fully healthy roster [LOL], one of Gaunce/Goldobin/Leipsic will get waived) Considering who we have left at Utica, this is easily the best depth for injuries I've ever seen the Canucks have including the 2010-2011 team.
  2. To the first post I wasn't counting players penciled into their positions as depth. However, its a fair point that if there is an injury to a centre position, Granlund would probably the first to fill in. Also, I wasn't aware Schaller could play centre. If there's an injury to our offensive centres we have Gagner/Petterson and Gaudette. If our defensive centres are injured, we have Granlund and Schaller. Management hasn't shown any faith in Gaunce being a centre so I don't really consider him depth (or at least a quality one) at that position.
  3. I'm not asking to trade them for gap fills here, I said I wanted to trade our prospects for prospects in positions we have less depth in. The alternative is we stop drafting BPA and start drafting for positional need which would be stupid.
  4. Well its a good thing we actually have pretty good depth to replace injured players: Wingers Dahlen Boucher Motte Gaunce (I'm assuming he'll be cut) Jasek Palmu Lind Gadjovich Centres Gagner (assuming Petterson grabs the 2nd offensive line centre position) Gaudette Dmen Joulevi Chatfield Brisbois Goalie Demko Centre appears to be the only area we should be worried about for injuries. I can see why Beagle was signed taking potential injuries into account. On a side note, we really do need to trade some of our winger prospects into D prospects or C prospects.
  5. I think this talk of Dipietro being too good for the CHL is ridiculous. He had a .910 save percentage in the CHL, there is plenty he can still learn there.
  6. I'd say three years. Dahlen Pettersson Boeser Baertchi Horvat Lind Roussel Gaudette Virtanen Gadjovich Beagle Ericksson Hughes Tryamkin Joulevi Rathbone Stetcher Woo One can dream..
  7. Adam Gaudette | #88 | C

    People keep saying that the new signings (Beagle, Roussel, Schaller) don't interfere with spots with our prospects but I beg to differ. If Horvat, Petterson, Sutter, and Beagle are all long term centres, where is there room for Gaudette? The only option I see is if Pettersson is moved to the wing in favour of Gaudette.
  8. That's a fair point. However, if the season is lost I see no reason not to give the younger players more ice time in general. I can't think of a better opportunity to give younger players to learn and make mistakes. Even the fans would still be more entertained by at least watching the new generation of players playing.
  9. At least it was just a 3rd pick. Heck, he still outperformed a number of horrible drafts picks we've made in the past in earlier rounds like Patrick White, Taylor Ellington, Mallet, and Sauve. Progress I guess....
  10. Nikolay Goldobin | #77 | LW/RW

    For the Canucks, Mike Brown was perhaps the last impact forward we lost on waivers. For the NHL overall? Michael Grabner (lol), pa parenteau, todd marchant, rich peverly, kyle quincey, kunitz, and bryzgalov at the very least. I wouldn't say that's nothing for the NHL overall.

    I just can't see Goldobin kicking out Baertschi out of his spot. IMO Goldobin's upside is basically Baertschi anyways. There's too many players vying for NHL roster spots for Archibald to crack it. I see it as: Leipsic Horvat Boeser Baerstchi Sutter Petterson Roussell Beagle Virtanen Schaller Granlund Ericksson Goldobin Gudbranson Edler Hughes Tanev MDZ Stetcher Hutton, Pouliot (is he still a part of the team?) Markstrom Nillson I don't know the AHL lifers too well but is this a reasonable line up for the Comets? Boucher Gaudette Motte Dahlen Gaunce Lind Jasek MacEwan Palmu Gadjovich Darcy Archibald Joulevi McEneny Brisebois Chatfield Sautner Biega Demko Bachman If not, what do others see as a starting lineup? Also, do people see all the oncoming prospects (Lind, Dahlen, Gadjovich, Jasek, Palmu, Gaudette) as being good enough for the AHL?
  12. [Signing] Jets re-sign Connor Hellebuyck

    I'm not sure there's a goalie in the NHL I'd sign for more than 4 years.
  13. Sam Gagner, why the hate?

    Because he takes up a roster spot that most Canucks would prefer to give to a prospect. If all he's bringing is 30ish points as an offensive forward, one might as well roll the dice on a rookie. I have a feeling it will be one of Gaudette or Gagner who gets sent down to Utica (or traded in Gagner's case).
  14. [report] canucks not qualifying derrick pouliot

    I hoped we'd keep him to at least light a fire under Hutton's ***. For an offensive Dman, I just didn't see great offensive instincts from Pouliot.
