  1. No doubt. But Horvat is not a natural playmaker - decent, but he's not McCann. Needs a playmaker on his wing. McCann needs a sniper. Enter Boeser.
  2. Yeah, McCann and Sven would make a good pair, except Horvat holds more grit and two-way ability, but probably needs a playmaker on his wing. Enter Sven.
  3. Yeah, we'll see. But I do see Sven as a potential 110 point producer, skating with the right linemates. I like to think the Canucks future top six will go: Virtanen-McCann-Gaunce Boeser-Horvat-Baertschi Baertschi in his case would be the playmaker next to two speedy power forwards. Together, I could potentially see him racking 80-100 pts with this line - if they click. The other line is another story for another topic - suffice for now I think, if it works, will pay huge dividends for Vancouver.
  4. How does an eventual line of Baertschi-Horvat-Boeser sound?

    Quite an underrated pick. Pair him with Horvat maybe and they should do wonders.
  6. Ben Hutton Talk

    HockeysFuture lists Hutton as 6.5C - a third pairing blueliner. How accurate is this?
  7. My hope is that will not come true, Lu being the best never to win. They will have to replace Gallant with a better coach, the Panthers have the personnel to win, but the coaching is suspect.
  8. Canucks To Introduce Individual Goal Songs

    If I had to pick for the Sedins and Edler, I would pick Eagle by ABBA: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qdoSy4ROZpg. Or Let the Music Speak: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qdoSy4ROZpg (starting @ 1:27).

    Yes, perfect song for Vrbata!

    Ain't seen nothing yet - also wished the Jets use it, but a great goal song Chelsea Dagger - Any Way You Want it -

    Strong and Free - stirring, emotional choir

    Yeah, you see the Sedin's reliance on cycling makes them easy to defend - all you have to do is cut off the passing lane between them (not like Gretzky who wouldn't exclusively pass to Kurri, or take the shot himself), or play them physically. A north-south Virtanen on their wing should complement them by at least warding off defenders, or even helping altar their usual game.
  14. Jake Virtanen | #18 | RW

    Jake Virtanen I believe is just the perfect linemate for the twins. He's a right-shooting power forward (who can complement left-shooting Daniel Sedin). Combines physicality, speed, and a laser of a shot, he can make nights a lot easier for the twins by either opening up space for them, warding off any pesky trouble-makers or physical blueliners, or simply giving Henrik Sedin another passing option. He could even make the occasional Bure-rush breakaway. I say, if possible, give him a shot at the bigs this year - he might stick. If he does, trade Vrbata and get some salary cap space (or a good defenseman).

    Heading into the draft, it seemed like Jeremy Roy was the concensus first pick among the fans. We needed an offensive defenseman badly and Roy seemed like the ideal fit. In hindsight, if we did the draft over again, who would have picked Roy over Boser?
