  1. Do we give Bo the "C"? POLL

    Isn't that basically what I just wrote?
  2. Do we give Bo the "C"? POLL

    Crosby is at a totally different level then most players so IMO can't really include him as a comparable. Would put Toews in that level as well...his nickname is captain serious for a reason haha. Their results obviously tell the story re: what good captains they are. McDavid is also all world but I wouldn't have made him captain if I was the coach. The dude is the best scorer in the league so let him score...why burden him with Captain duties at such a young age. Have nothing against Bo being captain but hope the team doesn't push it earlier that they have to.
  3. Do we give Bo the "C"? POLL

    I think everyone probably agrees that he is the future Captain but should that be next year? Still pretty young so is it better for his development to focus on improving this game now and take over Captain duties in 2 or 3 years? IMHO not a question of if but when is best.
  4. Do we give Bo the "C"? POLL

    No need to rush Bo - I think he is better off focusing on improving his game than worrying about being the Captain. Let him get another two years under his belt and then give it to him.
  5. goals,goals...from who?

    Agreed but glass half full...when Benning pulls it off it will be fun to watch all the keyboard warriors scramble haha
  6. goals,goals...from who?

    I am a big fan of Benning’s plan but 270 – 356 goals is even a little high for me…if the Canucks can somehow score 255 goals next year, that would be amazing. Young players need to keep developing but the below scoring breakdown is not unrealistic (provided players have seasons the are capable of having). Forwards: D-men: Bo = 22; Edler = 9; Boeser = 32; Stecher = 7 Pettersson = 23; Tanev = 4; Baer = 21; Hutton = 4; Sutter = 15; MDZ = 5; Eriksson = 19; Guddy = 3; Granlund = 15; Pouliot = 7; Virtanen = 15; Biega = 2 Goldy = 14; Leipsic = 12; Gagner = 5; Roussel = 10; Schaller = 8; Beagle = 3;
  7. Agreed, not sure it makes sense. Definitely not from the Canucks perspective anyways. Better off spending money on player development than weaponizing cap space IMHO.
  8. Battles at camp

    Ya I agree. Leipsic probably works well on the 3rd...all three guys like to drive the play north-south so might actually be a good fit.
  9. Battles at camp

    Makes sense because Horvat and Eriksson could help shelter Pettersson as he adjusts to the NHL and Baer and Boeser could in a sense shelter Granlund who has some weaknesses at centre.
  10. Battles at camp

    Might not work but would love to see Granlund get a chance as second line centre with Peterson and Eriksson (skilled group - with the Sutter and Beagle lines, Green has the luxury of playing this line only offensive minutes and off-zone starts i.e. play protected minutes). Canucks need Eriksson to turn it around if for nothing else than to increase his trade value over the next couple years. I also don't see how they can risk losing Goldy through waivers. I would waive Gagner unless the team decides to keep two forwards for the first part of the season. I think Gaunce will clear waivers and most other players don't need to clear. I feel Hughes should go to college for one more year. Baertschi - Horvat - Boeser Eriksson - Granlund - Pettersson Roussel - Sutter - Virtanen Schaller - Beagle - Leipsic Goldy callups - Gaunce, Gaudette, Archibald, Dahlen Waive/callup - Gagner Edler - Stecher Del Zotto -Tanev Hutton - Gudbranson Pouliot callups - Biega, Sautner, Juolevi
  11. Ed Willes: Canucks' Linden revamp left in the dust by Leafs' Shana-plan

    Exactly...they were in totally different places...downside of a cup run for the Canucks and 12 years with only one playoff birth for the Leafs. The most interesting aspect of all this is and something the bloggers/media always overlook in a sense and complain about (ie trade picks for Baer, etc.) is the fact that the leafs had a decent group of 22 - 27-year-old players (Bozak, Kadri, JVR, etc.) to act as support pieces to Shanny's high draft picks. This is exactly what Benning corrected early on and now his high draft picks have support as they join the team (not just a bunch of 35-year-old plus players and/or NHL drifters). I think you will now see mgmt acquire more and more draft picks now that the organization has more depth from Jr to the NHL squad.
  12. 2018 Canucks Summer Development Camp

    Thought Woo, Copeland and McMaster all had good games as well.

    Some of the new D are looking really good. Good passing, good speed, good shots.
  14. [Signing] Flames sign Neal [5 years x $ 5.75m]

    Right, I would prefer Neal to Eriksson for sure
  15. Unfortunately, I think they would ask for Hughes (then again it's Ottawa so who knows what they would settle on). Sounds like Ryan contract would need to be included - $7.25M cap hit for the next four seasons.
