  1. I would trade for him at a discounted rate. B prospect and a 2nd maybe, but more than that would not be worth the risk IMO. He's 24.... Just about at the age where he can't get away with doing this dumb stuff anymore... I think he will eventually turn the corner and grow up, so I would take a shot at him if the price was reasonable.
  2. Right, I guess I just meant those would be the next guys for me on the outside looking in, Pedan or Gaunce could be in Utica. Does Gaunce need waivers this year? I know Pedan does.
  3. Sedin Sedin Eriksson Rodin Sutter Hansen Baertschi Horvat Virtanen Etem Granlund Dorsett Burrows Gaunce Edler Tanev Hutton Gudbranson Sbisa Larsen Tryamkin Pedan that's my best guess for opening night, but I see a ton of movement in those lines... hansen could be with the twins 5 on 5 with Eriksson on the Sutter line, burr and Gaunce could easily be in the lineup over Etem and Granlund, and who knows where Rodin will eventually fit. I think Virt will be on the team all year though, unless he comes into camp out of shape or something.
  4. I feel like the thing that the people clamouring for a complete tear down rebuild are missing is that we don't have the prospects ready to play yet. if we had some young guys ready to go but aren't getting a chance because of aging vets then I would get it, but look at our pipeline, Brock's a year away at least, Virt and Bo and Hutton are already on the team... Who else is ready to step up and play significant minutes without damaging their development? Subban, olli, brisebois, zhukenov, Jasek... I don't think that would be best for them. JB is patiently drafting well and making room for prospects as they prove they are ready, it's not the quickest or most satisfying way for fans, but I don't really see many other options.
  5. I expect Shink will have a good showing in camp, and be one of the last guys to be sent down to Utica. Where he will play top line minutes and be one of the first options for call ups.
  6. Hmm interesting, I liked Forsling, but Clendening looks like he has some good offensive potential as well. And is ready to step in now. Only 22 Is still a young player, and if he can fill a slot right now this move actually makes the team younger.
  7. LOL, typical Canucks fans supporting our own prospects? Do you think we should be supporting other teams prospects instead?
  8. Did I miss his suspension being reduced? Or is he just allowed to play in the pre tourney games?
  9. I bet he only hits 10 if gets some special team play...maybe PK?
  10. And really, who cares if we burn a year off his ELC, it's not like he's projected to be a prolific scorer and will end up burning us on his next contract.
  11. Yup, it will be interesting to watch him. I think a year where he get 9 games in the NHL, a key role in the WJC, the balance of junior, and possibly a playoff run in the A would be great development. Keep him with the big team until Christmas, even if he's not playing every game.
  12. Maybe, but all 3 of those can move up and down to the big club with ease... Horvat is all or nothing, that's why there's even a conversation. Plus he's the only one of those players currently playing C.
  13. We've been surprisingly healthy to start the season, atleast on F. I'm sure once a guy or two get banged up it will be a lot easier to slide Horvat into the lineup.
  14. Official for now, I'd say. If he sticks after the 9 games than you could officially say he's made the team.
  15. The way I see it, if Bo plays well enough to be considered the first C call up for this team, then we should keep him up. If we send him down then we are just hurting ourselves when a C goes down with an injury this season.
