Dubbed as the next big thing since Crosby, the Canucks will have to do everything they can to get this guy to continue what the twins have started, dominance of the NHL.

Unlike others, I do not make threads just for the heck of it, I provide solutions/recommendations.

If we are lucky enough, we may be able to snag Mcdavid and add him to our revitalization of prospects. By 2015, when Connor is eligible, Mackinnon and Jones are ready (see other thread on my take on how to get the 2).

OK, to be able to get the 1st overall in 2015, its either we tank, which wont happen, so the next thing to do is trade assets.

By 2015, if we havent won the cup, it means the window is closed. Therefore, I suggest we use the twins and a prospect like Jensen to get that no. 1 pick. I know its a bold move but if you really think about it, it really makes sense. Hopefully, if we pull the trigger on this, we already won the Cup in 2013 or 2014 or both.

Thoughts?

Lol no way a bottem feeding team who finishes last will give up a first overall pick for a couple seasons of the twins who would be already starting to decline when they would much rather have a potential future franchise superstar for 15+ seasons if he chooses to stay.

Even the Sedins for Crosby straight up would be declined by the Penguins.

One day some of us will look back on the year and look at the chicago, and most of us will realize that it was a small bump in the road to the cup

Connor McDavid? He's 15 years old and 170 pounds. Didn't you learn anything from the Boston Bruins?

You fail. Even Martin St. Louis weighs more.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

lololol

By that logic, Chara will become to tall to stay in the atmosphere by the year 2030 and he will enslave us all.

We should be prepping for the rise of Chara! Who cares about McDavid, when people are somehow magically growing, as you put it.

Seriously, did someone ruin your Christmas? You've been making a ton of pessimistic threads lately.

Any trade for the 1st overall pick starts and ends with Schneider. No exceptions. The Sedins aren't going to have enough value at 34 years old unless some team is really desperate.

I see a name change in your future.

First of all, the twins will never wear a different NHL uniform unless they asked to be moved.

As someone else pointed out. In 3 years the twins will be 35 years old. You're not going to get a potential budding superstar for two old men. There's just not that many idiot GM's around not counting Scott Howson.

He's 5'11 and 170lbs. At 15 years old.
Patrick Kane, for example, is 5'10 and 181lbs.

If you don't think the kid will gain at least 15lbs of muscle in 3 years when he's drafted, you're crazy.

Do not undervalue the twins.


Their production at age 34 isn't as much of a concern as how long they are going to continue to play for. At best, they're going to have 5-6 years of roughly PPG seasons beyond 2015, which isn't a ton of value compared to potentially 20 seasons at at least a PPG pace (especially if McDavid turns out to be as good as everyone is saying).

In short, they'll still be good, but nobody knows how long they will be able to keep it up.

Making preparations to get an upcoming rookie is risky as heck, not to mention expensive. What if we still don't get him? What if he's the next Patrick Stefan? Not worth it.

A lot of people don't realize a few things about the Sedins. They are already not fast and strong players. Heck they are probably some of the slowest skaters in the league and aren't amongst the strongest. Yet look at the numbers they have put.

Sedins will decline, every player does, but it won't affect the twins because of their playing style as it would affect a player who's game is speed and going up and down the ice. The Sedins are just so good at protecting the puck and they are smart with it.

You guys are seriously something special.

I came out of my mother's lady parts weighing 160 pounds. Fact.

People don't magically come into this world weighing less, and then grow. We're not seeds.

A lot can go wrong in a players development in 3 or 4 years. You can't really call a 15 year old a star in the making.

This may sound strange but I don't see the twins failing due to age in the same way other players do/will.

Because they are twins I rekon they will be effective right up to touching 40.

They are incredibly fit and dedicated and their chemistry will only get better.

By the time they are 40+ I see them ready to take over from MG with Bieksa taking over from AV.
