  1. All I can say is that over the last year and a half to 2 years Benning has been almost flawless IMO. So his previous moves while they matter don't make want me too replace Benning. If he keeps things heading in the direction they are going all is good.
  2. It's really hard to not be getting excited about this team. There are so many positives. The biggest is that the core of the team is very young and only going to get better with time.
  3. I remember that one of the big fears when Trevor Linden quit was that the owners would try and fast forward the rebuild. They said they would stay the course and they did they are saying the same thing this year. You can't ask for better owners then that if you ask me.
  4. 13th atm is latest we can pick unless we lose our next game and Chicogo gets a point if those 2 things happen its 12th.
  5. All I can say is of all the picks we have made in for as long as I can remember this is the pick I was most excited about right from the second We picked him. Boeser and Petterson grew on me but I was excited right away with Hughes.
  6. Not sure about that but I sure hope your right.
  7. Ack that might make me stop watching hockey.
  8. Barzal is one of the best skaters in the League so that's good company to keep.
  9. Awesome thanks guys. I've seen Quinns skating but that's vs college players which makes it hard to translate. If he can skate like Barzal in the NHL that will be fantastic.
  10. I keep hearing Quinn was the best skater in the draft which is great. That being said how does he stack up in the NHL? Anyone have a comparable?
  11. I just watched the interview with him at the combine. Man this kid is confident and motivated. I am actually getting more excited about Hughes than I am EP who I think is going to be a superstar. But this kids drive and determination are what helps push teams to championships. I am really getting excited about this teams future again.
  12. So I have now had time to look into Hughes more and I have to say that I am absolutely thrilled with this pick. I will be shocked if he doesn't become a star in the NHL. You know I have a lot of faith in Bennings drafting but being a Canuck fan I go into every draft with that dread of yet another 1st pick that turned out to be almost useless to the team. But I'm certain Benning hit a home run with this pick.
  13. How would his skating match up with Bures?
  14. Who's to say not me thats for sure. I'm not saying its a bad pick, just was totally out of left field to me. I hope he is a good pick for them I'm not an Arizona fan, but the fans there deserve some good fortune. The Petterson pick through me for a loop too last year and look how that's turning out.
  15. If that's true count me as excited as hell. Keith caused the Canucks fist for many years.
