  1. DOMINATE The Draft

    Too many moving parts. Here's my simpler way to get a bunch of picks early and younger through trades. 1. Schnieder to Col for #1 overall and Sami Aittokallio 2. Draft Seth Jones 3 Ballard and Higgins to the Isles for Martin and 2nd rounder - they need depth on D and cap hits, Higgins from NY, great fit...rather see Booth go but unlikely they take him. 4. Edler, and Schroeder and next year's #1 to Philly for Coutourier, Laughton and #11 overall. 5. Trade #11 and Laughton to FLA along for #2 overall 6. Draft Mckinnon 7. Sign Clarkson Lineup Sedin Sedin Clarkson Burrows Kesler Mckinnon (until he's ready to play center) Kassian Coutourier Jensen Martin Lappy Hansen Depth - Booth, Gaunce, and sign Boyd Gordon or Steckel Defense Hammer Jones Garrison Tanev Bieksa Corrado Lou Younger, bigger, cheaper, capable of winning now and in the future. Clarkson - hits, fights, scores, protects the twins, teaches Kassian what he needs to do to be a power forward McKinnon is ready to play, he is an offensive threat who can see the ice. Play him on Kesler's wing till he's ready with his defensive play and faceoffs, who better to learn from than Kes, and can slot in if Kes goes down. Coutourier. Perfect #3 right now and with Kassian on his wing learning the game properly and Jensen on his other who can finish we get one of the best young lines in the league, without much pressure on them. play smart and chip in and develop your game, future number 1 and 2 line there. Martin/Lappy/Hansen, who wants to deal with that in the playoffs? noooobody! and gives us a REAL NUMBER 4...allowing a new coach 4 real lines to roll. Defense. Jones may not be ready for top pairing but play em with hammer, you need to. Allows him to cheat a bit offensively and make a few errors which will be covered up Second pair terrific Third, Corrado covers for Bieksa brain farts. Bieksa brings the size when needed. We lose Edler, Schnieder, a first and Laughton, Higgins. Not bad... future centers are set for the next 12-14 years McKinnon Coutourier Gaunce Wings Kassian Jensen Defense Jones Tanev Corrado Goal Lack
  2. [Official] Canucks coach talk. Keep all talk here.

    Deb agree on the coaching comments. Having played a high level of hockey, being a ra ra coach is the movies, its not real. Players look at coaches like that like they are imbecils over time. Respect is earned by players by helping them develop, implementing good systems, utilizing players properly, and allowing leaders to lead. Coaches are there to guide the ship but aren't the gas nor the engine, the players are as you effectively suggest. However, disagree on KB. I like him as a player but think his consistency is lacking. We need KB to be more of a hitter, deterrent, physical force, he has tried to be the 2 way dman which is great but focuses more on the offensive than defensive side of the game, when if he was playing more of a stay at home, phsyical game as a team we'd be better off. Moreover, as one posted mentioned, he often gets himself out of position when he loses his composure and I think of the 'core' players he is probably one of the best assets to move if he would waive, given our depth on D, his age, his relatively decent rep around the league. Packaged with Lou and our first and maybe a prospect maybe it gets us Coutourier and their first back. Or potentially something as good from the Islanders. I do beleive something of signficant value will need to go with Lou to get us a great deal. And he is likely the best bet

    We needed SIZE!!! and clearly he's not good in games where playing a tougher brand of hockey is played, ie playoffs how was his faceoff %? what was his ROLE? WHAT WAS THE ROLE WE NEEDED TO FILL? 2B or 3A? you are ignoring the reality buddy...MG didn't supply AV with talent and the proper mix. the year he did, 2011...look where AV took them. firing a coach who's been the best in nucks history, took us to the scf, 2 pres trophies (1 which we didn't deserve), a jack adams, and conference and divisional wins.. one has to ask, did AV over achieve with a group last year and this year? likely...and we'lll see it next when ./ if we dont make the changes MG should have made. we all know MG has made a TON of errors in talent management, and this his job. you can't ask a chef to make a 5 star meal if you give him ingredients that aren't high quality....

    Umm firstly Roy is not a first line center. He's at best a decent number 2 and you're saying our center depth is one of the best in the league? wow! Did you see how many points Roy got in the playoffs? How bout his faceoff percentage? how bout the hole MG needed to fill and what he filled it with? Did we need a 2b with no size? or did we need a 3A with size and faceoff ability? And did we not know that before the season when MG said he already knew Manny was done? Dude get your head out of your behind. Your comment is absurd. If you think the nucks had some of the best center depth in the league...well ...no one can help you

    Should be MG, Bowness and Brown not AV. When he had a proper team we got to 1 game of the cup. He had a team of crap outperform. MG should be gone
  6. Brendan Gaunce Talk

    The Canucks said after they got him, that his skating was not an issue, that it was overblown by some scouts. I've seen him live, he can play. He will be at worst a great 3rd line center for this team, and has the potential to be a number 2. Think of him as a Rod Brind'amour light...he is going to be the captain of the Canucks one day, mark my words. He will remind many of a certain other captain who wore #16. They are very similar in their approach to the game, leadership, heart. Probably doesn't have the speed Linden had but I'd argue better hands.
  7. Brendan Gaunce Talk

    Yup...just like power forwards, smaller players take time to find how to establish themselves in a much bigger league. In junior and the minors its a bit easier as talent alone can set them above. As they move higher, its harder because the speed, skill, etc is all another level. Now they are playing against guys with elite skill at the roles they play so they need to find their niche. That player you speak of Marty St Louis, was on pace for a 110pt season. Exceptional. He took 3-4 seasons to establish himself and was traded by the Flames after a 56 game year where he had 18 pts. I remember the trade and the flames feeling he was 'too small' 18 pts/56 games - sounds close to what Schroder would have done. He was also older as he had played in US college hockey (he was 25 yrs old when he played with the Flames).... We need to give Schroeds at least 2 full seasons to see what he can do. I think he has immense talent, the right work ethic and attitude. Give him some big talented wingers - Jensen and someone who can hit and he will be fine. I remember another little guy in Vancouver who did pretty well...a guy named Cliff

    how did that dude get a -98? lol...i dont see a dislike button
  9. Brendan Gaunce Talk

    Lol! Schroeder 50-60 pts in the NHL? in his second (and really first season, playing on the third/4th line with plugs?) Do you think the guy is the second coming of Crosby? Dude really. Schroeder will be a fine number 2 behind Gaunce if given the right players to play with and some time. He is challenged right now bc he is not taking Hanks or Kesler's role and he's not big enough for the number 3 spot. I could see him being part of a Lou trade to get a number 3 with size who can eventually be a number 1, which would allow Gaunce to be 'expected' to slot into number 2 That being said your rationale is luduicrous.
  10. Brendan Gaunce Talk

    Gaunce 4th in OHL playoff scoring. I thought when we drafted him we had a poor man's Kesler/Linden.. a solid third line center that would bring grit and leadership. Starting to look like we have at least a terrific number 2 and a potential number one maybe we got a bit of a steal
  11. Burrows? Do We Really Need Him?

    The answer to your question is the same as the answer to this question Are you the stupidest human being alive? Yes and Yes we need Burrows Done
  12. Yann Sauve Talk

    Sauve will sign with some other team, play a year in the AHL and we'll see him in the NHL in two, mark my words. He has been handled extremely poorly by this team (and for what reason who knows). He is a solid, stay at home dman with size who can skate, something every team wants. He is NHL capable and will make it, just not with us. Bad move.
  13. Brendan Gaunce Talk

    If he's close to another famous 16 I think all fans will be very happy. I think that's a better comparable given all of his assets. Getzlaf probably has better skating, hands but Linden certainly had alot more heart. Gaunce is no slouch but I don't see him with high end skills (that being said, he's young). Getzlaf, from many I know who are close to the ducks say he is a bit of a lazy player (really riding on past reputation and Corey Perry -reason I wouldn't want to see him ever as a nuck - Perry yes but a diff thread). Gaunce seems to be another great pick by the nucks late in the first round, if he keeps developing we certainly have a potential number 2 center coming up and with Jensen and Kassian would make a very tough tough line to play against. A couple more good drafts and we should be ok up front, but I would venture to say the next 2 drafts are very very very important for the nucks. They really need to find a top end offensive player to replace daniel and another who would slot into the 1c. Clearly, this is why MG is so focused on getting an offensive young center back in the Lou deal, because one he has that, alot of the risk in the future is removed.
