    Comets Prospect
  1. Who is the most underrated Canucks prospect?

    i am gonna say Shinkaruk. I think he is being written off by a lot of fans. He had an injury last season and is having a tough time adjusting to prohockey but I think he is just a hot streak away from getting his mojo back.

    Has the CHL experienced the same drop in scoring over the years that the NHL has? (due to improved goal tending, faster/better defense, etc) If so than that stat comparison with his pops would be even more impressive.
  4. Gustav Forsling Talk

    Forsling appears to have just signed a 3 year deal to stay in the SHL. I saw this in the reddit canucks page and they linked an article in swedish

    So where is his invite to the McDonalds Mega Match or the Burger King Battle Royal?

    How is that fence supposed to stop a bear?
  7. Dane Fox Talk

    This is exactly what I am doing with Fox as well. Its funny cause with all our other prospects I tend to imagine them all maxing out their potential no problem (in my daydreams) but with fox I always temper my expectations and imagine him not working out so that I can be pumped at any and all progress he makes.
  8. [Draft] VAN selects Jake Virtanen 6th Overall

    I really did not want jake just cause I had the idea that Dalcolle would fall to us so set in my head. as soon as the islanders made their pick I had a complete turn around. Did not think i would be this stoked to draft him.
  9. Bo Horvat Talk

    I could not agree more. The numbering system has always bugged me.
  10. Nicklas Jensen Talk

    I am always reading the prospect forums (such a better community than canucks talk) but rarely contribute since i do not get to see any of them play. Ill take this opportunity to say that I really appreciate your posts as well as others such as derp, and stonecoldstevebernier and others whose names I cant remember right now. One guy who I never liked seeing in this thread, Go Go Canucks Go, I really wish would make an appreance. I wonder if he would admit to being wrong or still defend his negative views of Jensen.
  11. What do you think of Jensen's NIght?

    Jensen has looked great. Really happy that he seems to have transitioned to NHL as expactly what we hoped he could be when we drafted him; a big, scoring top 6 winger who is not overly physical. Me and my friends were trying to decide on a caparable player to him just for discussions sake. I wanted to say he is comparable to JVR but I think that JVR uses his size a lot more than Jensen. Maybe Marleau would be a better comparable. What do you guys think? (Obviously not saying he is as good as JVR or Marleau at the moment but just comparable in play style/ceiling) IIRC Schroeder was tried at the wings a couple times for the Wolves last year and was really ineffective. I think he still has potential and If paired with big wingers that can open up ice for him could be very effective despite his size but is still very much a project.
  12. Official: Deadline Reactions

    Looking at today I saw 3 possibilities involving Kesler; I)Trade him for the big return he is worth. II)Panic and trade him for a less than desirable return. III)Don't trade him and see what is available in the offseason. I will not say that option 3 was a win but it definitely is not a loss.

  15. 6th Pick: 2014 NHL Entry Draft

    Its funny but I am really excited to see who our 5th round pick is going to be. We are on a hot streak for finding gem defensemen with that pick; Corrado, Hutton, and Cedarholm in the last three drafts. In fact, could you imagine how bad our defense prospect pool would be without our finds in the 5th.
