When you say that "Sven at 27 has blossomed into a Naslund type player", you are using the present tense.  In other words, you are telling us that he is 27, which he is not.  If you don't chose the right word, your meaning is lost.  Welcome to CDC.

 

I did not miss your point, I agreed with it.  :)

 

 

The tense I was using is called Future Perfect if we're engaging in pedantry, and thanks for the welcome.

Glad we can continue to agree on Baertschi.

I was being kind if you care to read my initial comment.  Clearly you think you know something about the English language.  Maybe you should use it correctly.

You were being pedantic and condescending. I'm not sure why, I've got zero issue with you; quite the opposite, I typically find your pov thoughtful and engaging.

In any case, I'm ready to get back to Sven Baertschi talk.

Great signing by Benning.

 

Baertschi looked great last year. He's the type of player this team needs more of. 

He looked great, or okay last year?  IMHAO the reason for his 2 year bridge deal is because he still needs to prove he's a legitimate NHL offensive player.  

 

If he's not contributing offensively, is he in the league?

You countered a non existent point in his post... that's impressive.

Bo is destiny to play with Baertchi as Bo is #53 and Baer is #47 which makes 53+47=100, those 2 are perfect haha

What expectations do you all have for Baertschi gong into next season? 

 

I would like to see him pot ~20 goals, and ~25 assists.

I hoping he clears 20 goals with 30 assists. I think he'll get more pp time this year too (please instead of Burr)

He scored 13 of his 15 in the last half of the season...The penny didn't drop until the halfway point....IF he stays healthy,20 goals should be his minimum...

Goals are great and 20+ does seem right but let's not overlook his playmaking, which could bring out the best in Sutter and Ericksson as well as Bo.  I get that JB would like to shelter him on the 3rd line but beyond the Sedins he's the best passer we've got and the only one who can skate with guys like Sutter and Bo.

I wonder why Benning wants to protect Bear so much that he is wanting another top 6 guy....the second half of the season Bear was killin it, and in fact added some power offensive moves to his game. I really hope they give him 2nd line minutes, it is not like he is a rookie at this point, I think he is more than able to handle himself on D and hopefully pot 20 goals.

20gs and 42pts. is what I'm hoping for. Definitely doable with the right line mates and PP time.

Let's let this sink in...we literally stole Sven (a nearly NHL-ready, former 13th OA pick) from Calgary for a 2nd round pick.

 

Our coaches invested in him, and he improved both his play and confidence dramatically within one full season.

 

He's now on the cusp of being a top 6, 20g scorer (minimum), and regarded as our next most skilled offensive forward after the twins.  He has chemistry with our future Captain, a two-way  powerforward, who needs reliable offence on his wing to reach his potential of  1C.  

 

JB re-signed him to a very reasonable 'show me deal,' and is looking for another LW to keep pressure off of Sven for another year.

 

Burke - thanks for mishandling this asset - you've given the Canucks one last gift. Thank you Treliving for trading within your division.

 

Hat tip to Canucks management and coaching staff for handling this player nearly perfectly so far.

 

Looking forward to many years of Baer + Ox...

 

 

 

...and knowing every success will be painful for Flames Fans

Baertschi is to Calgary what Shinkaruk might be to us. Scary thought. 

Shink has a long way to go to be as good as Baer.  Right now, I'd say Grans is a better player than Hunter.  Calgary are pretty solid at LW, so it will be a challenge for Shinkaruk to make the team.  With only one more year of waiver exemption, he has a huge jump to make or he will be traded again.  I think Gaunce has a better chance of being an NHLer than HS.
