With Tram moving on you've his chances of making the bigs likely increase. I'm hoping he ends up back in junior.

 

We're gonna need more depth as is, so I'm hoping Gillis acquires a few pieces to insulate our younger guys who are still developing. Wouldn't be opposed to having someone new to patrol the blue line next season if it gave Olli more time to slow cook in junior.

Where have you been? Gillis been gone a long time haha Bennings running the show now. Or wait maybe its Linden?

You guys be funny yo :lol:

 

Honestly expect us to sign a depth UFA D regardless. If Juolevi (or Pedan, McEneny etc) want that 6th spot, they need to earn it, not have it handed to them.

All seriousness , anyone have any idea what Oli's weight is he's playing at currently?

Shane O'Brien and Andrew Alberts would be good depth, Gillis might be able to get them cheap.

Alberts would be exactly what we need if we meet the Kings in the 1st round.

Wow, you have this knowledge based upon your extensive watching of junior hockey games?   MT is a head case and will wear thin on his teammates just like he did in junior except at NHL level he cannot simply "move on".   Second  year in league when teams know he is coming he will be far less effective.  Given the Canucks needs, OJ is a far better prospect but for some I guess the instant gratification is more important than hockey logic.

 

UMM MT A first line winger? He had 13 goals playing top minutes all year among some pretty talented guys. Of his 35  assists. Many of them were secondary. Just like in junior. IMO Secondary assists matter a hell of a lot more if they are coming g from a defenceman. I will take a potential #1 a or B defenceman over a guy who pads his stats off the players around him any day. You wanna talk first line wingers? Laine. Marner  Leon (made an amazing set up in ot even tho he should have been suspended) Brock Goldy those guys all have some type of it factor. MT is never going to be a game breaker. and he plays the game with no respect

 

 ps. PIERRE-LUC DUBOIS had just a terrible season %% points in 48 games. After getting 99 in 63 the year before. Too soon to say but man him and JP did not have good seasons at all. I am liking the Oj pick more and more. Tho I always did and knew right then and there we had A gm with big kahunas... He knew how much crap was going to be said about him by either not moving up or by taking a D at 5th overall. Rumours are rumours, but I read on one the lames fan forums that Boston pizza jr was going to take OJ regardless if Mt was still around. 

 

Gms like Chiarelli if he was a good gm would have taken the player that they needed the most. not A winger who will have a tough time being in there top 6. They would have been better off trading down a bit maybe with us and grabbed whatever d they thought was the best. From all accounts, most scouts didn't believe Oj would make it past 6th. In hindsight, I am glad the draft worked out the way it did. Except if we would have gotten Austin or Laine. OH god, imagine the tears from leaf fans. 

Correct me if I'm wrong last year the Leafs could have done no worse than 2nd. Yet this year col can do no worse than 4th. Was last years draft format in place just last year? or is this a new format starting this year.CHEERS

I wasn't a fan of drafting Tkachuk, but there's no real need to bring him down to try and make Juolevi better. The Flames sucked period in the playoffs, and whatever his statline against Anaheim, Tkachuk still had a strong regular season.

 

I don't think he had all that good of a reg season. Ya he racked up the assists. Like He did in junior most were secondary. 13 goals playing in the top 6 with from what im told a lot of talent. 13 isn't that much. to me, it seems like he used the other players to pad his stats. but hey that's just my take on things

Seems his strength is behind the net, battling then making good plays to out front.

Hopefully Alzner is around to help

As a UFA I love the concept. Is he playing injured? Seems to be spotted more than playing a regular shift. He has limited offense so maybe that is why.

As a rookie on a middling team, that's still a strong season. Detract all you want (from what I'm told) but if all people have is to come into this thread and trash Tkachuk to try and make Juolevi look better, they're doing it wrong.

I agree. I'm still not sure Benning made the right pick by taking Juolevi over Tkachuk. It's not always about the points. Tkachuk plays a fearless, gritty style, a player the Canucks could sure use. He'll get his bag full of dirty goals and is already an impactful NHL player. My fingers are crossed that Olli turns out as good as people say.

Alzner is sitting out because of upper body injury.

We could draft Brady next year just to placate the complainers, but then there'd be "but imagine if we had both together!"

You'd have to simultaneously acquire both Nylander's, Ehlers, buyout Louie and bring Tryamkin back from Russia to achieve anything close to that :P

I like Jake as a person. He's a nice kid, I've met him a few times. He might still turn into a good player but Nylander was staring us in the face. Blew away the combine, could have been mentored by the Sedins. Was a no brainer that we passed on. Loui was a terrible signing, JB should be worried about his job right now. If he doesn't get this lotto pick right he's in trouble.
