  1. 4 Unforgettable Moments From 2016-17 ?

    Hank's 1000th point Boeser's 1st goal in Minny Goldobin's 1st goal Guddy vs. Martin scrap
  2. A potential new philosophy arising

    Toughness just hasn't been here for years now. Sorta miss the days when we had SOB, Hordichuk, Bieksa, Rypien(RIP), etc. All guys who were standup teammates and willing to throw hands with no hesitation. Even tho the NHL is starting to shift towards speed/skill, we just don't have the personell to matchup against bigger teams, especially in the Western Conference like St.Louis, Anaheim, and even Edmonton now. Which is why I am rooting for Virtanen, Gadjovich, and a few others in the system to carve out a top 9 role at the least. Right now Guddy is the only guy with an established role that I would consider "tough".
  3. Would rather just have a Dahlen - Petersson - Virtanen line in the future.
  4. [Discussion] Why Don't We Recreate 2011?

    One thing I've noticed when I watch games live is that the play takes way too long to develop out of our own zone. Our defenders are too slow and we've been missing an Ehrhoff type player ever since. He could rush the puck up the ice on the rush(and had the wheels to recover) pass well, and get shots through tough angles. The Sedins are dangerous when they have that mobile, offensive defenseman playing with them and a sniper/net presence (kesler/burrows back in the day). 2011 teams was great but it was carried by a lethal PP. When we didn't get those regular season calls our team was outmatched 5 on 5 by a bigger, tougher Boston team. Add the Malhotra injury and Hamhuis injury and the rest is history. Benning has been making great moves lately. I think he has put together really solid depth at all forward positions in the future. Boeser/Petersson/Dahlen/Goldobin/Virtanen/Horvat/Gaudette/Lind/Gadjovich/Lockwood etc. We also have a franchise goalie with Demko. Defensive prospects are decent but there aren't too many guys that catch your eye as a #1 defenseman. Only piece of the puzzle I believe is missing is a bonifide #1 defenseman who can play all situations.
  5. Brock Boeser | #6 | RW

    I think it all depends how good our powerplay is this year. If he plays on the top unit with the Sedins and Del Zotto can prove to be a PP QB I don't think it's far-fetched to see 20 or 25+
  6. Do we even need Dahlin?

    Can never have enough defensemen... especially with this teams track record of injuries. Benning is building solid depth of forward prospects. No doubt in my mind we should go defense first or possibly even double dip at the position the first 2 rounds if the value is there. If there's ever a situation where we have too many defensemen we can always look to trade.
  7. [Rumour] Tanev for James Van Riemsdyk

    Why? He's the only guy on our team who can hit and throw the mitts. Even if he's only on our 3rd pairing I say keep him.
  8. [Rumour/Speculation] Hudler/Canucks

    Why would it take Horvat away from his game? Horvat and Baertschi have good chemistry together and they were putting up decent numbers despite playing with low ice time. Sutter isn't the answer at 2nd line C even tho he was playing well offensively last year he's better in the 3rd line C role.
  9. As much as I like Burrows he's not a 2nd line player plain and simple.
  10. How our lines should look next year

    Sedin - Sedin - Eriksson Baertschi - Horvat - Rodin Virtanen - Sutter - Hansen Burrows - Gaunce/Granlund - Etem Edler - Tanev Hutton - Gudbranson Tyramkin - Larsen/Sbisa Pedan/Biega
  11. Will we become a force again with our PP?

    I don't see any reason why our PP could be worse than last year. Don't know much about Larsen but I hope he can be a top unit PP QB. It would be nice to see Hutton build off of last season and get more pucks in the net too because he brings an element of mobility that our defense lacks right now. We also lack a big body in front of the net that Kesler was masterful at. Sedin - Sedin - Ericksson Larsen - Hutton/Edler Baerschi - Horvat - ______ Hutton/Edler - Tyramkin
  12. [Article] Should the Canucks trade Chris Tanev?

    If he fetches a top 6 forward or a 40+ point defenseman then yes, otherwise no.
  13. I hope Grenier can be a top 6'er for us one day we need size up front. I also like Pedan but we're pretty crowded on defense, hopefully we can make room for him and a puck moving defenseman to pair with him.
  14. Canucks (Proposal)

    Not too high on Krejci's cap hit. I also don't like giving up a solid 3rd line C and a draft pick that we need to build our team with.
  15. (Discussion) Trading Tanev or Edler

    I can agree with you that he's underrated but I don't think he's worth a young, 1st line forward at all. The reason I say that is because other than his defensive skills, he doesn't contribute much else. Doesn't have a physical presence or stand out offensively. That's what seperates the good defenseman from the great ones. If the right trade comes along to acquire a top 6 forward or 40+ point d-man i'm all for it.
