Bo Horvat.

No way was it some Russian who would've gone to the KHL if he didn't get a spot in the NHL right away.

You have to earn your spot, you have to work hard for it, can't expect stuff to be handed to you.

why is this a thread? There's so many out there in which you could have asked this question in it.
Horvat was the best option considering Nichushkin is a huge risk.

Edit : Give it a rest Tiger.

WHY must there be a Horvat or Nichushkin thread every other day???

Bo Horvat was the best and safest pick at #9. Now that this question is answered PLEASE stop making multiple threads on this subject.
  • 2

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

PPG wise NichIcantspellhisnamewithoutlooking
For what the Canucks needed? Horvat

Nichasksgdsdg wouldn't have cracked the line up I don't think unless he was god-like, and if he was, he would have been taken in the top 5 :\.

Horvat was the better/safer pick and was what the Canucks need... Depth down the middle = depth down the wings as well.. You can never have too many people taking face-offs.

No. The Canucks aren't even in the same realm as these other teams. They aren't even close to being good enough to make the playoffs. They'll be off by around 10 points.

Not trading our best goalie for the #9 pick was the best and safest option.

Best available prospect that benefits the organization in the long term (taking into account risk/reward factor) - Horvat
Best available prospect in regards to pure skill, talent and overall potential ceiling - Nichushkin

The Canucks are not in a situation to be gambling on prospects hoping the dice land the right way. If given the option to trade Schneider for either a guy that:

A.) Has a 50/50 chance of becoming a Jordan Stall or a Taylor Pyatt
B.) A guy who's much more likely to settle into a type of David Backes character

I would definitely go with B

Every thread you post your touchy feeling of the deal.. do you need a tissue because the deal happened and it was the best we could have gotten deal with it and move on. Luongo >>>>>>> Cory

Not even close. It was the 2nd worst trade in franchise history and Gillis absolutely needs to be fired for making it.

Well you have your own opinion and most would agree that your wrong. I'm sorry MG couldn't nab a 2nd rounder to make the deal complete for you. Don't act like you know the business and the trading department you aren't a GM in the NHL.

To be honest Nickushkin was the best available player but picking Horvat was a real winner pick for the Canucks along with Shinkaruk

Horvat is either going to be the next Linden, or the next Sandlak. I'm leaning toward the Linden side..... I'm just happy we have some good prospects who are going to scrap for a spot at camp. Canucks may have some surprises too from prospects who jump up.

The goalie controversy was decided by trading Schneider and clearly Luongo has a way better playoff record than Schneider Luongo has been the Canucks #1 for the last 8 years or so

Hypothetically if you were GM of this team, what would you have received in exchange for Schenider? And please be specific...

Wouldn't have traded him for any less than Kadri + a solid backup who could play in the playoffs if Luongo had yet another meltdown. Otherwise, I'd have had no issue buying out Luongo and being free of that awful contract.

Awful contract to trade...

Not an awful contract to have...

Elite Goalie at 5.3M... Not a bad cap hit. Front loaded with him making 1M/year in his last 2 years.

The issue with trading Schneider was, a year before... He would have scored a small fortune... But he had a good season and a less than stellar play-off performance, thus lowering his stock... If Schneids had done anything Lu couldn't GMMG probably could have demanded more and got it... But in a clutch moment, he got what he could. Could have he got more? Yes. Was Schneids worth more? Yes. Was it a bad trade? No.

So when you're GM and the owner REFUSES to buy out Lou you do what then? That's a lot of money that isn't Gillis' to spend on a buyout that, rumor has it, the owner refused to pay for.

Not an elite goalie when he can't consistently play at an NHL caliber in the playoffs/ We'll be eating that cap recapture long after he's capable of being a starter on even a bad team.

At least try to waive him.

No one takes that contract on waivers. You are then stuck trying to trade Cory because you cannot afford both goalies with their cap hits. Gillis was painted into a corner and made the only move he could make. If Lou clears waivers and is still here, odds are that will make the situation even worse than it already is. Whether they want him as their starter or not, they are doing their best to show faith in him and it's the best they can do right now.

On topic with the #9 pick thread... another one.... going with the flashy player isn't always the best move and I think Horvat is the kind of player they will need, especially if Kesler's health remains a concern moving forward.
