I mentioned in the op that I have a feeling we pick 4-6 and I think JB trades

 

Baertschi+Hutton+5

for

1 or 2 + prospect (?)

 

NP or Hischier. We need our future 2C to complete this vision. To me there's 3 options. Hischier, NP, or Duchene.

man it really is all or nothing on this site

jb is a terrible gm and lets fire him asap

to saying he is the best gm ever after only 2.5 year

but using terms like "god"

i get it is slang.. but that is just too extreme too fast

 

i guess it keeps everyone on here stoked

to go from hot to cold and back so fast

if you have lived a little longer

you'll find slow and steady is really not such a bad thing

kinda peaceful and relaxing (no need for any bud either)

He is building an amazing team and I cannot wait to bump this thread in a couple years and get a great laugh!

i like the job jb is doing

but let's get real here

the failure rate for prospects is at least 50% or more

you are assuming this team hits on 100% of our prospects

pretty damn unrealistic and one reason why so many on this site are so glum

they think if jb bats .500 or less he is in fact doing a lousy job

but he would be doing very well if he could even hit on 50% of the prospects

No way cup champions 2020 :o 

 

Man.. Just watch us get smashed by Connor Mcjesus (2-3 pts/night playoffs, just watch) just like how we smashed by Kane. But again we BARELY smashed kane the 3rd try around.

that is better than average though if he could even get that outcome

On the prospect I mentioned yes. Virtanen is the long shot projection as he's the only on not really proving anything yet. Correct me if I'm wrong.

 

Gaudette and Boeser am I wrong highly doubt it.

 

Have you seen Dahlen play? If not you really should

 

Goldobin I may be wrong about but I believe he's got that it factor. All the Dmen I mentioned are proving it all year, except Juolevi but it will come.

 

Demko I'm not wrong about just watch. 

 

So out of these players can you let me know what half you think will fail?

Think about it for a second. When JB took over who was the best young guys here?

 

Horvat -

was the best by far but even then we didn't think he would be as good as he is, but he is :)

 

Shinkaruk -

High point producer who lacks an all around game that will possibly hold him back of a successful NHL career

 

Corrado -

Man he was so over rated on here due to lack of D prospects

 

Hutton -

He kind of caught us by surprise last year. TBH I think he just had a lucky year and I don't think he has the potential many think. I'd really like to see him packaged in a big trade come draft day while he has good value. Just my opinion I understand any criticism I get for that.

 

Markstrom -

Future Carey Price *sarcasm*

 

Is there any more worth mentioning? Cassels? Grenier?... Future AHL call ups 

 

 

3 years later...

 

Demko -

Carey Price 2.0? :)

 

Virtanen - 

Struggling but I promise he will be a top 6 forward for us. I just know it, he's really good, just needs that man's strength to reach that potential.

 

Boeser -

future top 6 for sure, I'm going to go as far as saying he will hit 40G atleast once in his career

 

Gaudette -

Steal of his draft, I'm really eager to see him hit the big club, I see 2nd line C or Wing in his future, and he will be solid.

 

Dahlen -

Man he is going to be special. Let's buy out Burrows.. lol (mad respect JB!)

 

Goldobin -

Future top 6, maybe not so distant future, I don't see him playing our 1st line as I think Boeser and Virtanen will be Horvat's wingers. But he would be good enough.

 

Baertschi - 

Solid top 6 forward that I feel won't be here too long unless he is willing for a 3rd line role with top 6 fill ins (our new Hansen?). I just don't see it happening. I see us picking 4-6 and Benning packaging him, Hutton, and our pick to make sure we fill that #2C.

 

Granlund -

He is our next Hansen.  He will be a 3rd line scoring winger capable of moving up and down the lineup.

 

Juolevi -

I see a Tanev with higher offensive IQ.

 

Tryamkin -

Oh yeah

 

Stecher -

Solid offensive defenceman with well above average defensive awareness and a really high work ethic. If only he was bigger

 

Gudbranson -

Will prove A LOT of you wrong, trust me

 

Others that has great potential include Brisbois, Zhukenov, Pedan, Boucher...

 

I'm expecting we enter next year with a new coach and a more offensive high flying playing style. Sedins will have a bounce back year playing on the 2nd/3rd line against weaker opposition. Slowly you will see some of these young guys take over the team and even know we won't be serious cup contenders we will see playoff hockey and it will be exciting again. I really believe that deep down. It's all uphill from here.

 

Our first cup winning team? 2020 

 

Virtanen Horvat Boeser 

Goldobin (Hischeir?) Dahlen

Gaudette Sutter Granlund

Sedin Sedin Eriksson

Juolevi Tanev

Tryamkin Stecher

XXXXX Gudbranson

Demko

 

Sedins retire CHAMPS!!!!

 

Eriksson traded for a pick

 

Then comes the beginning of us breaking the Redwing playoff record, JB eventually breaks record for longest ever tenured GM and the Canucks win atleast 3 cups under him. I travelled back in time to tell yas that. Watch out for the butterfly effect!

Atta Boy Hortankin... Beauty folks!!!

Eh, what the hell. For fun:

 

Baertschi-Horvat-Boeser

Dahlen-Granlund-Goldobin

Eriksson-Sutter-Boucher

Gaunce-Gaudette-Virtanen

 

Juolevi-Tanev

Hutton-Gudbranson

Tryamkin-Stetcher

 

Markstrom

Demko

 

If all fill their potential/hitting their potential, that's filthy.
