  1. In order of importance.. Horvat Petterson Markstrom Tanev Edler Boeser
  2. Love Petey to death, but I still think Horvat is our most important player. Hes the only player that comes close to comparing to O'Reilly and what he did for the Blues. When we do make the playoffs, the O'Reilly types are going be the most important player on your team. Peteys a close 2nd, then Tanev or Edler, then Boeser.
  3. When the NHL changes back to a no-pansy league, players like Gudbranson are going to be much more effective and sought after.
  4. He is only 23. Has all the tools to be a top 4 dman for a long time. People that haven't played hockey love crapping on young players... just the way it goes on these boards, and the media.
  5. The biggest key to the success of the Sedin era Nucks was that the team played for eachother. They went through the wall for eacht other every game. Bieksa, Burrows, Kesler, Luongo, The Sedins, Edler, Hamhuis were like brothers on the ice. Thats what this team needs to gel into. Skill alone will not lead to success. Its that X factor of willing to go all out for each other that will take us anywhere.
  6. Gaudettes not an nhler yet and hes certainly not a puck distributor, which is what his perceived wingers will need. With how deep we are, his best case scenario is playing wing on the 4th line this upcoming year.
  7. Baertschi and Sutter have no chemistry together. I like Sutter as a player, but hes more of a winger in this NHL considering his inability to distribute the puck to players like Baertschi. Having said that, i have no idea where he'd fit right now. With Ferland coming, I really thing that allows Miller to play 3rd line centre. The only way to win in this league is with 3 scoring lines and a 4th checking unit, which Beagles should be. A line of Leivo/Miller/Virtanen would wreak havoc for the opposition. Almost as much as Pearson/Horvat/Ferland Pearson - Horvat - Ferland Baertschi - Petterson - Boeser Leivo - Miller - Virtanen Roussel - Beagle - Motte
  8. This team now has sandpiper all throughout its forward lineup.. When was the last time we could say that?
  9. This has to be one of my favourite moves made by the organization in years. Someone said it in this thread above but this totally is starting to remind me of that '94 team, which honestly was really similar to the Blues team that just one this year. We look really deep at this point up front. I would LOVE seeing Ferland with Bo and Pearson. I can see this allowing Miller to play his preferred position at centre, and likely means Sutter is out. Pearson - Horvat - Ferland Baertschi - Petterson - Boeser Leivo - Miller - Virtanen Roussel - Beagle - Motte
  10. You've gotta be out of your mind. I would take Makar, Byram and possibly even Timmins over Hughes any day. For the most part canuck fans understand what Hughes is.. a soft, one dimensional, undersized dman. He has offensive upside but never in history is a dman who is subpar defensively, who a coach will never put out to defend a 2-1 lead in the final minute or kill penalties, considered any more than your 2nd or 3rd dman. Fans like you need to temper your expectations with this player... Guys like Makar and Byram are Doughty types.
  11. So true. You have to remember though, 90% of the posters on this board have never played competitive hockey, and will never understand how much more there is to this game than points.
  12. Miller prefers playing centre over wing so it likely means Sutter is on his way out. 2 years from now, slot Podkolzin on Horvats wing and we have a beast line and a sniper line. Pearson - Horvat - X Baertschi - Petterson - Boeser Leivo - Miller - Virtanen Roussel - Beagle - Granlund/Motte
  13. Barrie is exactly what this team needs. Guy can do it all and will be solid for another 5 or 6 years.
  14. Good player with a serious Kesler like attitude. I can see him here for a year then asking to be traded back to an American team.
  15. I like Joulevis potential a lot, even with his injuries. Hughes, whether anyone wants to admit it or not, is not going to be a number one dman. He does not have the build or the intensity for it. A guy like Joulevi, could be.
