  1. This is shaping up to be Benning's best draft yet.

      Canucks fan poking fun at self-cynicism. That's novel. 

    3. HI5


      @The 5th Line But this is our year!

      I'm not saying that I don't think Benning did a good job, I'm just pointing out that the same thing gets said every year.  I'm guessing you all think our 6th and 7th round picks are surefire NHL'ers in the making and we  won this draft by a mile.  

  2. We are having an amazing draft so far
  3. Great pick at 33
  4. We're gonna get a really good player at 33 I'm excited. Comtois, Lind, Popugaev, Robertson, Ratcliffe, Anderson-Dolan etc. are all available.
  5. So stoked about Pettersson. Having that kind of skill/production against men is huge. The kid has serious potential especially once he fills out his frame.

      Got the guy (at least one of the guys) I wanted and a bunch of people are angry about it. Couldn't ask for a better draft day.

      I started to lean towards Pettersson over the last few days and I'm really happy we got him.

      kids got lots of upside, and clearly a lot of teams weren't all that impressed with Vilardi. We have Glass' skill set with Bo. When you look at the speed and skill Jim is building it makes a lot of sense. Really now I think we're looking for a #1 LW. 


      ________- Bo - Boeser

      Dahlen - Pettersson - Goldy

  6. Too bad he won't
  7. Glass or Pettersson for me. By the sounds of it Makar is going top 4 so he won't be available at our pick unless we move up.
  8. - Brock Boeser scores 25 goals - Bo Horvat is named an assistant captain and really takes this team on his shoulders (60+ points) - Canucks will draft Elias Pettersson and he and Dahlen will dominate the AHL together - Virtanen starts the year in Utica but is eventually called up - Juolevi makes the team and has quality ice time - Thatcher Demko will win 30+ games in Utica - Brandon Sutter has a very productive season - The Sedins have a renasaince season - Canucks will make the playoffs as the top wild card team and win a round
  9. Who would be in favour of getting another first and going with Pettersson+Kostin? The bonus here is that both players are eligible for the AHL next year.
  10. Nope. He's going to college next season.
  11. How was Chairelli a GM of the year candidate again?
  12. That $19.5 million in cap space tho

      Between Horvats 5 or 6 million, Boesers wanting the same in a few years, Demko getting that much in the future (if he turns out to a Murray)... Best to sign rental players, and then flip em at the deadline to contenders.

      @canuktravella And why would a big name FA sign a one year contract especially here?

      do a sundin special 10 mill for thornton  one yr  at least wed make playoffs 

  13. Come to think of it Glass is probably good for 100+ points next year playing with Kieffer Bellows.
  14. Probably unlikely. IMO I don't think he gets past Colorado if Heiskanen is gone.
