  1. I'm really curious to see how the Canucks season is going to go. Everything I've read and everyone I've talked to seems to think the Canucks are going to finish bottom 5 again. With our improved D and if Baertschi and Horvat build off the 2nd half of last season and Rodin adapts well to the NHL, I can definitely see us pushing for a playoff spot. Really depends on the twins imo tho. Every team has gotten faster, going to be hard for them to keep up, especially at their age.
  2. Not sure if you've ever played hockey before but Lappy is a player everyone hates playing against. He can throw players off their game, he's very fast, chippy and can win face offs. He also fought when he had to. Not sure what more you expect from a 4th liner. Burrows was the biggest reason everyone hated the Canucks, guess we should get rid of him?
  3. I don't think it's a good idea for him to go to Europe... London is one of the best, if not the best at developing stars. He'll also be a leader on their team this season and can hopefully take his offensive game to another level. Also wasn't this past season his first on NA ice? Probably be better for him to stay over here.
  4. Tanev for Drouin Drouin-???-Boeser Baertschi-Horvat-Virtanen
  5. Yes I'm sure. I'm hoping he's just playing rw till he gets his breakouts and zone exits down. Those are harder on your off wing since you have to take passes on your backhand.
  6. Virtanen should be playing lw imo. That's where he played in his draft year when he put up all those goals. Even at the World Jrs most of his goals came from the left side of the ice. He plays similar to Ovi and that's also where Ovi plays. Way better shooting angle and they're able to drive to the net much easier on that side.
  7. I can't believe people are leaving Tryamkin out of the starting lineup. Did you guys not watch him last season? He was one of our best defenders near the end of the season (not saying much) while adjusting to NA ice and barely being able to speak English. His conditioning was the only thing that was bad and he's been working hard on it in the off season. He's going to be a beast next season. Sbisa or one of Tanev/Edler will most likely get traded.
  8. All depends on training camp. Personally I'd waive Biega. Every team has a guy like him in their system and he probably wouldn't get picked up. Pedan and Larsen also bring things Biega doesn't. Pedan - size, intimidation, fighting ability Larsen - offensive ability, better pick mover Sure Biega has the hustle, but that can only take you so far.
  9. Quick to judge before you've seen him play. He was on pace for over 30 points his first season,on a $&!#ty Oilers team.... Pretty good if you ask me, especially from a bottom pairing defender which is what he's going to be here.
  10. Wtf, that was pretty much Svens full first season last year.... You our do realize players improve right? And that most of his points came after the 2nd half when he got his confidence back after it was crushed by the Flames.... He was also the one who drove the offense most of the time, not his fault the rest of our team couldn't score I'm very confident Baer will be putting up around 50 points this season, same with Bo. Which is 2nd line production....
  11. Just watched a bunch of his highlights, most of his goals seem to come from in front of the net, will be a perfect fit for the twins and they already have chemistry.
  12. Yeah, he wouldn't be worth as much, but I still think he'd be worth an Eberle. Wouldn't want him traded to Edmonton obviously tho. Edlers a good #2 and probably still has atleast 3-4 decent years left in him.
  13. We need to find a way to trade Edler, could get a huge return.
  14. Little late now... Could have had Him and Puljujarvi at the draft...
  15. Could really screw them salary wise but damn.... Hall-McDavid-Puljujarvi Lucic-RNH-Eberle *****-Draisaitl-Yakupov
