Canucks making critical mistakes in hindsight?

Recommended Posts

Kassian can't score in the AHL, yet he's putting up the same amount of points Hodgson did. Right.

And I think everyone's in consensus that Suave was a poor pick.

I see that Banned has rubbed off on you.

Spare me the trolling claim - it's pathetic.

Bad contracts added under Feaster:

Cammalleri

Hudler

Cervenka

Wideman

So,after five NHL drafts with Gillis at the helm the Canucks don't have one pick that can realistically play for the team.

I didn't say he had to make it right away. All you have to do is look at drafting history to realize that 95% of 7th round picks don't make the NHL. The odds are greatly against him.

As for Labate, I bet he gets closer to the NHL than DeBlouw. He's probably just going through a sophomore slump right now. He's still got 2 and a half more years at Wisconsin (great hockey program), before we'll be able to see what kind of player he'll be. He's got size and skating going for him. That gives him a leg up.

Kassian has been benched and has just slightly more than half a PPG to Cody's full PPG.Time to clue in.

Sauve will be an NHL 'er long before Connauton.

TSN just released their special: Top 30 Prospects

Canucks were the only Canadian team without a prospect in the top 30.

Time to face the music.Luckily,it's Christmas music and you may have bought some brandy or whiskey by now.

Hodgson got two points tonight and scored the winning goal in the shoot out. PPG + stats now.

Cammalleri- got rid of a lazy Rene Bourque and his 3.8M contract. Pretty obvious who the better player is in this deal

Hudler-Top 6 forward

Cervenka-entry level contract? Not sure what you expect.

Wideman-50 point defenseman? YA NONE OF THOSE

This has to be the worst argument I've seen, lol

Wouldn't it make it more impressive for a rookie on a weaker Michigan Tech team to produce almost PPG while doing almost 60% on his draws, which most are in the defensive zone?

Tanev wasn't signed to anyone. He cost us no pick at all. Getting an NHL player whose got a hell of a defensive game at his age is quite the foundation to build on. His offensive contribution is already visibly better. Better deal than any draft.

Cammalleri - the 6 million dollar 19/20 goal scorer

Hudler 4 million - Mason Raymond .48 ppg NHL career. Hudler .52 playing with superstars.

Cervenka - 3.8 million - zero games in the NHL

Wideman - 5.25 million dollars - 50 points in 2008. If you are claiming Connauton can't defend, wait until you get a whiff of Wideman lol.

Our drafting doesn't suck but our development does,the past two years we should have relied a little bit more on prospects during regular season,but in the chase of the almighty presidents trophy this organization/coaching staff has some how forgotten this.

No because if you followed college hockey you would know that Michigan Tech is tied for second last with Wisconsin in the WCHA.

I never said Wisconsin was a good team, I said they have a good program. Meaning good facilities, trainers, and coaches. What they don't have right now is alot of high end talent.

It was Rene Bourque at 3.8 or Cammy for 6. For 2.2M more I'll gladly take Cammy

Hudler has been a consistent 40+ point top 6 forward. 50+ points more than one season like Raymond. Not sure how you value those, but 4M sounds about right.

Cervenka will only get 3.8 if he meets his bonuses, otherwise it's 925K base salary. And if he gets 3.8M, then he will be well worth his contract.

Did Wideman not get 46 points last year? Pretty darn close

You can't really blame Sutter when Bouwmeester at 6.7 and Stajan at 3.5 were their worst contracts - add those four to the list and the Flames bang for your buck, which is what building a team under the cap is all about, is not looking very promising.

On top of that, the fact that they are in the ownership hardliner group is as ridiculous at Minnesota's gigantic contradictions, going from free agent insanity to CBA hawks - ridiculous. Calgary is in no position to hardline - they have spend money as stupidly as anyone in the NHL.
