  1. (Proposal) Tanev for Chicago's 8th pick

    Well thought out good response +1 to you
  2. 7th Overall: 2018 CDC Draft Consensus

    @JamesB I like your thought process so I went back and checked who I selected and this is the way it panned out for me. After thinking about things it re enforces how little I know. 2017: wanted: Liljegren/Glass/ Heiskannen DNW: Rasmussen 2016: wanted: Chychrun/Juolevi/Sergachyov DNW: Brown 2015. wanted Rasmus Anderssen/ Kylington/ Jeremy Roy DNW: Bittner 2014: I wanted:Ehlers/Travis Sanheim/Nylander So, Benning has Petterson, Juolevi, Boeser and Virtanen. I would have had Lilijegren/ Chychrun, Anderssen, and Ehlers. Lots of young D on my team. I have been hoping for years to pick up some more D. I hope this year Benning selects some more support for OJ. After watching the drafts I am excited by Bennings choices. The only real question mark I have is the 2014 first round pick, but it was his first and I feel there was a push to pick the local kid. 2016 is a bit thin after the first pick ( i hope Lockwood bounces back from injury this year) Anyways its exciting times leading up to the draft ( a couple of extra picks in the first round would be sweet)
  3. 2017-18 Utica Comets Thread

    Well said and I whole heartedly agree thanks very much for keeping us informed. I really do enjoy getting the good oil on all the prospects. You each deserve some recognition for taking the time to educate the masses.
  4. Draft Lottery

    How will Benning rig anything? What does he have to do with actual drawing of the numbers? Did I miss something? On another note, that dude in the picture sure is creepy looking!!!!
  5. Assessing the Canuck D: Some Interesting Numbers

    Good post OP thanks for crunching the numbers and giving the rest of us some solid information to process. Something that screams out to me being a sports player (not hockey) is that without offense it is very difficult to apply pressure to the opposition. They can continue to put pressure on your defence relentlessly. That was evident so much this year for the Canucks. If you recall there was a few games when the Canucks got away early and ended up winning with 5 or 6 goals. In those games the Canucks defence held solid and looked good. I truely believe once the Canucks get some of these young hotshots hitting the back of the net a fair amount of pressure will be lifted from the defence and players like Pouliot and Hutton wont struggle to get the puck out of their own end. If the forwards can apply their own pressure to the opposition the defence will look so much better statistically. Some better goal tending wouldnt go astray either. Those soft goals early in the first period really make a defenders game that much harder.
  6. 2018 NHL Entry Draft

    Alf i think he is eligible next draft not this one and i suspect he will go first (or projected to be first). Correct me if I am wrong people. He looks like a very good one!
  7. [PGT] Arizona Coyotes vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Disney can't even write a fairytale that good!!!! What a special night.
  8. Do any current NHL players smoke marijuana? Any Canucks

    By looking at the Canucks form over last few games one could suggest the whole team is smokin big fat blunts !!!
  9. canucks energy score

    I see watt you did there, well played. Who's bright idea was this thread anyway?
  10. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Los Angeles Kings

    Next season will be the first season Benning has not been handcuffed in anyway. The Sedins will be off the books at $7m a piece (they may re sign but it wont be for anything in that vicinity), Edler can be dealt at the deadline if that suits Benning, every other piece is his own doing. There could be a lot of action next year. I believe this year is the low point- rock bottom, but I cant see a rapid rise, but next year will be better. I have FAITH. There is a light at the end of the tunnel and its getting brighter
  11. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Los Angeles Kings

    The way this team is going they will most likely pick 4th OA! Damn the draft lottery!
  12. Rodrigo Abols | C

    The kid I liked at this pick was Tyler Soy (taken by the Ducks) who is putting up good numbers for a 7th rounder. He is also a bit bigger than Ronning at 6 foot.
  13. 2017-18 Utica Comets Thread

    Because he still has deficiencies that need nurturing. Like his top shelf glove hand inefficiencies Dont throw him to the wolves before he is ready. In all honesty the Canucks don't need him yet, let him learn. He doesnt get media punishment in Utica. He will get eaten alive in Van. The media are rabid beasts that suck the soul out of anything that lives! If the Canucks can get just have some more time to get a little more quality defence in front of him then everything will pan out a little better for the whole situation. As for me, i am 100% on board with him being the future of the team. I truely believe he will be the goalie that the Canucks deserve and need! IVE NEVER BEEN MORE EXCITED ABOUT THE TEAMS FUTURE. Just give them time....it was the Red Wings mantra for 20 odd years and it seemed to work
  14. 2017-18 Utica Comets Thread

    For those that want to see Demko up in Vancouver next year, this will be a real eye opener. If he gets shelled in the AHL and cant deal with it imagine what would happen in the NHL. If he manages to stand on his head then it may just show he can handle the promotion. You have to find some silver lining to this situation. I really feel for you Comets supporters, the team had really hit a groove and was looking very good but the trade deadline and Canucks injury curse has derailed a fast moving Comets express!
  15. Markstrom Moving Forward: A Big Head's Take

    From reading reports by those who watch Utica play it seems Demko is still a long way off being NHL ready. He has some glove hand top shelf issues that need time to be corrected. I would hope they give him another season in the AHL and give him lots of game time to fix these concerns. I dont expect the Canucks to be too much better on the back end next year, so having Demko get shelled at the NHL level before he s ready doesnt sound like positive development to me. But hey what would I know?
