  1. [Proposal] Dal- Van

    Heiskanen one for one.
  2. Quinn Hughes | D

    IF Hughes were to sign a pro contract, I could definitely see management hanging onto Chris Tanev for the foreseeable future. Tanev has that stabilizing presence for his d-partner and hopefully a hungry and determined Hutton would fare well playing alongside him. Juolevi to Utica; Del Zotto and Pouliot in the press box. Edler - Stecher Hutton - Tanev Hughes - Gudbranson
  3. Further, I would rather trade Tanev. Both Stecher and Gudbranson have shown in previous years that they can play effective top-4 minutes.
  4. If we trade Edler this season then we don't have any signed top-4 left side defensemen for next year as Del Zotto is a UFA in 2019. That leaves just Hughes and Juolevi along with Hutton (RFA) to eat up minutes. We would need a major UFA signing to eat up top pairing minutes for next season if we were to trade Edler; I don't believe neither Hughes nor Juolevi can play the 22-24 minutes that Edler does.
  5. 2018 Canucks Summer Development Camp

    He isn't Canucks property, but how was UND defenseman Colton Poolman? Did he play well? Or look close to being an NHLer. He may be one of the most sought-after NCAA free agents next spring and it would be interesting if the Canucks have the inside track and sign him.

    Tanev and Gudbranson are good players, the former being better than the latter. That's said, Tanev is always involved in trade rumours and Gudbranson hasn't lived up to expectations since coming over. I wonder how much both of them factor into management's long-term plans. Maybe we trade Tanev sooner rather than later. Maybe Gudbranson stays for just the duration of his 3 year contract. No doubt, they are good pieces now that can help the team, but long-term we'll need another potential RHD prospect. Tryamkin, on the other hand, is a huge wildcard. If he does indeed return in a year or two he'll have the opportunity to step right into a top-4 role alongside Hughes or Juolevi. I hope he returns, but hope is not a strategy.
  7. Jack Rathbone | D

    Rathbone sure seems like a player. Possible late round steal, but IIRC had he chosen a different pathway instead of High School Hockey --> NCAA he would've been picked in the early rounds of the draft. He definitely has the talent for a top 100 draft pick. A possible left side of Hughes/Juolevi/Rathbone would solve all our puck-moving and offensive woes from the blueline. Hopefully Benning and Co and get complementary right-handed defensemen to play alongside them. Stecher is one (and already played bottom-4 minutes in the NHL), Woo looks like he could be a player as well.
  8. IIRC wasn't Ottawa and Vegas talking trade at the deadline, with Glass being the sticking point?
  9. Canucks Review (Discussion)

    As long as coach Travis Green is here, I can see Sven Baertschi and Derrick Pouliot in middle-6 and bottom-4 roles, respectively. He knows these players like the back of his hand and can utilize them in specific roles so they can achieve success. Both players have shown improvement in the past year and with continued coaching under a familiar face hopefully they can take the next developmental step.
  10. As good as Karlsson would be here with the likes of Boeser and Pettersson, chances are they would want Boeser or Pettersson in return. We simply do not have the expendable assets for a trade supposed Karlsson trade unless we really dismantle the "future core" that Benning has been building.
  11. [Signing] Maple Leafs sign John Tavares

    Our very own Laurence Gilman working on those cap dollars. Hopefully he can fix their cap problem by sending us Nylander and them Tanev.
  12. Toni Utunen | D

    Looks like he's a keeper and could make it in the NHL one day. Left side defense getting particularly crowded, but it's great to see some organizational depth. (Edler) (Del Zotto) Hughes Juolevi Hutton Pouliot Brisebois Rathbone Utunen
  13. [Signing] Maple Leafs sign John Tavares

    Nylander for Tanev+ please.
  14. Tanev (@50%) + Lind + VAN 2nd for Nylander + Zaitsev + TOR 2nd please.
  15. Jett Woo | D

    Love the pick.
