  1. Elias Pettersson | C/RW

    Maturity beyond his years... boded well...
  2. Benning, Goldobin, and a logjam of forwards?

    This is probably the most uplifting GIF I've seen on these pages...Magic +10
  3. Benning, Goldobin, and a logjam of forwards?

    I actually don't think we are as far away as you seem to think. Agree 100% not everyone react their potential, but we are starting to assemble a fair amount of promising forward prospects. At defence we do have some good prospects, Hughes, Trym, Woo, OJ, + a fair few more... Yes far from everyone will make it, but some will, and once management knows who, there are the trades/FA to fill the blanks...hopefully.
  4. Benning, Goldobin, and a logjam of forwards?

    Nobody does.... However thats just it. Nobody expected Karlsson to do this neither... otherwise there’s not in chance in hell Vegas would have gotten him. We are getting better depth than we probably ever had. We will never have 10 EP caliber waiting... but there is a lot to be optimistic about in that group.
  5. Benning, Goldobin, and a logjam of forwards?

    Stop stop stop.... you make too much sense. +1
  6. Benning, Goldobin, and a logjam of forwards?

    And perhaps add Trym, Brisebois, Woo, Rathbone into the mix next year or the year after
  7. Benning, Goldobin, and a logjam of forwards?

    Of course he does. Whats the whole point of bringing him onboard otherwise? To come and draft players, because the alternatives to him aren't good enough at that, and then out the door? Vancouver press.... lets $&!# some more on our team...
  8. Benning, Goldobin, and a logjam of forwards?

    Typical drivel... For several years the press just like certain posters were unhappy about us not drafting enough talent. More draft picks, more draft picks, more.... Now that the club is drafting lots of players, we have too many players...we don't get value, that may leave for next to nothing bla bla bla... WTF do you expect/want. Haters gonna hate.... If the players drafted all flops yes then you can complain, but so far that just doesn't seem to be the case, so instead lets moan about us having too many players. Pathetic nonsense,,,
  9. Do we give Bo the "C"? POLL

    Agree...
  10. Quinn Hughes | D

    Well said amigo. Thats is my only concern as well... don't want him dead before his career even started.
  11. Brendan Leipsic | #9 | LW/C

    Yes I expect likewise. However if they get to draft a 1C, I can see EP move to RW instead, and as you say the final place will be between the aforementioned or some trade/FA player. But just looking at that group... surely there is a cracking 3rd line there and still enough for part of a trade. This I did not expect 2-3 years ago. Hoped for, but did not expect...especially after dropping in every single lottery. I'm one delighted supporter. Another year or two JB and Green will start to know, what we've got, and this team will start progressing.
  12. Quinn Hughes | D

    If he isn't going to play on the main team, I'd rather he continues in college. I didn't hurt BB or Gaudette, and I'd like him to get a bit stronger before he starts in the NHL.
  13. Brendan Leipsic | #9 | LW/C

    Agree... Wouldn't have a problem with Hughes and even Pettersson not playing until next year. For the record I do believe Pettersson will play. We still need 1 more top six player, hopefully a top line player, before we start to show off. We are now so far along the lines of a new team, that we may just as well get a full house. I love what is happening here, and It will only get better. A fair few of the players coming up through the system will not be on our team, as there is simply not room, but they will make good additions to future trades. Pending on how this season unfolds we may have to use some of them in trades to get our top six player, be it C or LW. The option of two top lines with BB, BH, EP and the extra one, mixed into two top lines or 1 power line, and then add Dahlen, JV, Lind, Jasek, Gadjovic etc into the mix. I'm drooling with the prospect Even though 1 or 2 of them may make way in a deal to get out top line LW/C... (unless we get a big FA signing) This is, what we've been dreaming of for years, and the dream is slowly becoming reality.
  14. Brendan Leipsic | #9 | LW/C

    Sorry but unless Leipsic, Gaudette and Lind/JV takes off like the wind, this will not be our 4th line. That line will get more than 10-12 min/ game. I don’t for a second believe both Baertchie and Goldy will be here in 2 years. Don’t think Neither is good enough for 1st line duties. More likely we draft or trade for 1 LW / C next year, and that will spell the end of either or both. Also if Eriksson still omly capable to play 4th line W, they trade him off as well... simply no room for him on the team then.

    It was meant as sarcasm, hence the laughing face.... I don’t totally agree but he is not the leading light expected at utd. Do agree that he needs to play in a 3 midfield. And also believe he will improve. His biggest problem at utd is, he gets lazy and don’t defend as a proper box to box midfielder. His talent is undeniable but he need to produce on a constantly basis.
