    Certainly he must be getting frustrated that there's too many players on the roster and that he's not even able to play every game.

    So what's the lineup look like now if Gagner and Archibald pass through waivers? Would it look like this: Dahlen Gagner Boucher Palmu Gaudette Jasek Gadjovich Gaunce Lind MacEwan Kero Archibald Bancks, Darcy McEneny Chatfield Sautner Brisebois Joulevi Sifers Blujus, Graham Demko Bachman

    Is there a reason he wasn't given an ELC contract so he can play on our AHL team?
  4. Virtanen, Horvat, and Boeser - new line

    It's preseason and we're playing terribly, what do we have to lose? I thought the point of signing guys like Schaller, Beagle, and Roussel was so we can play more of our young guys in offensive positions. Who care if Virtanen earned it, if we play better with him there we should do it.

    Also in your defense, that article was written in a confusing manner.

    From your article: "The Canucks shipped Olli Juolevi back to Finland instead of London for a third season, so the Knights didn’t have any European players last season. " They are talking about how Joulevi was sent to Finland instead of London LAST YEAR not THIS YEAR.

    I can only see what my TV showed and admittedly I was left with a "meh" impression. Based on what you wrote, clearly I was wrong to do so. You need to post more often.

    Wait what? Where is the news for this?
  9. I suspect this will be an unpopular idea but I think it would be a great if Virtanen gets trained to be a regular on the PK. He reminds me of a bigger, more physical Raymond. With his speed and ability to enter the offensive zone at will would make for great rushes during the PK.

    I didn't realize this, thanks for the update! (I was thinking Schaller)

    https://www.vancourier.com/pass-it-to-bulis/antoine-roussel-out-with-a-concussion-will-miss-training-camp-1.23431327 Just great, two of our UFA signings don't even start the season.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
