  2. I'd like to see them get Shane Bowers with that second I have a hunch he will be a good one.We are on the hunt for an offensive centre or two and Bowers would compliment them.200ft,gritty and good on draws.I think he may draft day rise.
  3. What about 29 and 39? 5 picks in the top 55.
  4. With Hutton,Stecher,Gudbranson and Juolevi in place and given Tanev and Edlers career injury history now is the time to aquire picks.Not sure moving up burning assets is the answer but top two round draft picks over the next few years is.Build a cluster around the same age and see what comes of it after a couple years of development who knows hit on a few gems and might not be as bad as some people think.
  5. Both have mounting career injuries,are they in a rebuild or not.Is it a 15 year plan or what?
  6. They have to build a cluster of young guys that get along and want to be in Vancouver.Get that by trading all the older assets they can now.the first wave has got enough to now focus on them.If they can aquire picks and hit big on a couple of their own picks they just have to strike at that key contract to try and get them into long term 4.5 contracts.
  7. Watch Benning trade Tanev for T.O's first and end up with Heiskanen,Valimaki and Jokujhuru.The all Finn top four with Hutton and Stecher.
  8. Virtanen came into the league looking like he could become one of the best hitters ever.Given the fact he needs to protect his shoulder as he matured in the league why wouldn't he try and increase his bulk?Its not an exact science finding an ideal weight to hit big defenceman,shield the puck from them and also maintain elite level speed.I see Virtanen in the Bertuzzi timeline that when he hits his prime he will be something special.I remember Jim Sandlak came to camp as a kid a few years then one day a newer prospect caught him with a good hit.That caused something to go off that turned him into the house and one of the leagues heavier hitters for awhile.
  9. Wondering where the two seconds and T.O's first would land up the draft board.
  10. Trade anyone they can other than the kids for picks and get Jim drafting up a storm.
  11. Bennings draft eye is the only thing going Canucks way ,try and get him as many picks as possible.
  12. Sucks we won't close the gap on the pack in this draft only roll a dice with a better choice but nonetheless they will get a solid player and try and get that generational player next year.Starting to join the Heiskanen camp could be a pick that makes both him and OJ better.
  13. I would trade him his career injuries are piling up and there looks to be some good project players with high upside late first.
  14. I'd say Dirk because he played a regular shift,killed penalties and was part of some good teams in big games.Why I'd say he was underrated is he fought super heavyweights and swung like he was trying to relieve them of their heads.His toughness was lost a bit in those years because the Canucks usually dressed a couple tough guys but he could bring it when he had to.
