This visit needs a separate thread from the Luongo one, since it probably had little to with Luongo..

Friedman's 17th thought today:

17. Undoubtedly, the Gillis/Laurence Gilman eastern excursion was to scout potential trade partners and free-agent targets. The two conferences don't see each other this season, so you don't get that close-up look if you stay home. Don't forget, the Canucks pitched Cody Hodgson to Washington last season for John Carlson. Hard to see Capitals GM George McPhee parting with the young defender, even with that new hairstyle.



http://www.cbc.ca/sp...keep-weiss.html


And the College FA that GMMG was reportedly watching:

More interesting, is the report from TSN's Bob McKenzie who appeared on the Team 1040 on Monday afternoon and said that the Canucks management team spent some of their time on the East Coast scouting Yale Bulldogs forward Antoine Laganière.


[H]is name isn't entirely unfamiliar to me, since he attended Vancouver's Development camp way back in the summer of 2011. Now, he also attended development camps hosted by both the Penguins and Oilers organizations, so it's not like his participation in a Canucks hosted camp indicates that the Canucks have some sort of "inside track" on signing him or anything, but he's obviously been on Vancouver's radar for a while.


Following Laganière's busy summer in 2011, he took off as an NCAA skater and has morphed into a point-per game threat for the Yale Bulldogs. He's also six foot four and weighs two-hundred and change, attributes which have appealed to the Canucks (and every other NHL team for that matter) during recent entry drafts.

I hoping we sign Laganiere. 6'4, 215 and a PPG.

And Carlson isn't coming here, they won't trade him for Luongo and Carlson is a huge part of there team, I don't see him moving.

Also MG said he was there scouting the Pens and Caps to get a feel for what they are like and how they play, to begin to get a book on them.

Stat check on Laganiere:

33 points/35 games last year. +6.

This year: 12 goals, 11 assists, 23 points in 22 games.

Left handed center who stands at 6'4, 196 pounds.

Last year was 4th on his team in points, this year 2nd to a Pitts' 5th round draft pick.

22 y/o.

I agree. It's interesting though, with the way WSH is struggling it makes me wonder if GMGM will do anything or hope things smooth out.

Didn't see a thread in this forum regarding Carlsson, nor the possibility of 'trades, rumours, signings'. I saw one in Canucks talk but I think this is a bit different. If it needs to be deleted, that's fine.

Yeah Mallet will be the toughest outta all them fighting wise. I hope Gaunce doesn't throw down to much, only to defend himself or a teammate. Mallet will actually look for the fight

It's true that happen here all the time, but you can't say adding a 6'4 center who's been near PPG in the last 2 years of college for free is ever a bad thing. Even if he only developed into a bottom 6 guy still a win, and if he doesn't then at least he can potentially help the farm club

didn't look like anyone was pumping his tires that much to me. He would make our center prospects depth better. I don't see any exciting guys coming down the pipeline outside of gaunce (at center), could suit our needs pretty well if we can sign him.

Out of that list above. I can see Gaunce, Kass, and Jensen becoming stars. Every other player on that list will be role players.

Corrado might be a decent player in the future.

Well they're the 1st rounders so I'd hope so. It's hard to guage where McNally or Hutton will top out as since College defenceman are pretty hit and miss. McNally could be a Matt Gilroy or maybe even a Justin Schultz. I like Hutton to could turn into a bigger Bieksa

Carlson makes very little sense, considering our top-4 defencemen are locked up long term and even Tanev is becoming a real force on this team. So basically Carlson would have to replace Ballard, and there's not much point in grabbing him for the #5 spot. We don't want another expensive bottom pairing D-man.

As for good prospects, MG isn't even going to bother there. He's clearly stated he wants players who can play in the NHL now and win us games, our window is now, not in 2 or 3 years. If anything, he was scouting Johansen and some of their other centers that we could use. Johansen would fit perfectly into our system - Swedish center who could learn a LOT from Henrik, 40 point player who may even out-produce Kesler and would eventually be our #1 centerman.

Given our usual low draft number...any type of free college prospect is good especially ones with upside. low risk potential high reward moves like this will help with the eventual rebuild when our current core retires/declines in the coming years.

I'm not sure that Hutton will become much. McNally may become quite a player, actually. Could be a diamond in the rough.

Considering that we've drafted quite low, we've drafted quite well. Jensen is going to be a good player. Could you imagine a line of Kass, Gaunce and Jensen? LOL. wow, that'd be a huge line. And they're not slow players either.

I've watched Hutton a bit he could suprise. Same with Jeremy Price. I'm just hoping McNally can figure out which direction he's gunna go with this whole cheating scandal. Because he definitely has the most potential of any of our college d men

And the refs will actually call the game similar to how it is called during the regular season, which would have been nice a couple of years ago.
