I just remember watching the draft and wondering why they were passing up on guys like Barzal and Connor. Sure they may have done well but damn just think if they had Barzal, Conner and Boeser. That's the three top rookies this year.

It was their second rounder that really made that draft what it is and Brendan Carlo is a beast in training.  forsbacka-karlsson is looking like he is gonna be a player at one point too. But I digress, when is ep40 playing next. That is more important.

I agree, Carlo is going to be a beast for sure...would've looked great in a Canucks uniform

Elias is playing on Sweden's PP1 today along with Oliver Ekman-Larsson, John Klingberg, Mikael Backlund, and Adrian Kempe. I'm ok with him getting some experience playing with guys of that caliber.

Tanev's future could be factored into who Benning anticipates drafting in June. If he sees a clear path to his primary choice Tanev might be retained simply to solidify the d-core. We don't know what is cooking. Tanev might have more value at the TDL next spring. Personally I would like to move him now if possible.  

To me it’s more about who JB is targeting as a FA

 

With any pick outside the top 3, there will be little impact on the roster next season from this draft. 

 

The only position that I see being questionable would be LW. Let’s say Tkachuk falls to 7, then he would be the obvious pick. He is a player that could make the team year. No d man outside Dahlin is playing in the NHL next year. 

 

So if Vancouver wants to roll the dice and go hard after Carlson then Tanev becomes expendable and can be traded for addition picks/prospects. 

 

If Vancover is willing to take on Spezza’s deal as a cap dump, we could also gain more picks. 

 

We can afford to do both ATM.  Although I would prefer to target JVR along with Carlson vs taking on Spezza. 

 

Teams that I would target for a Tanev trade, NYI, they are after a RHD and Tanev would be an improvement on De Haan at a very reasonable price. They have 2 picks in the top 15.  

 

NYR.  No coach would appreciate Tanev more than AV. They have a top 15 pick. 

 

Lastly, TO. This is the team that would likely want Tanev more than any other. They have a mid round pick and a few prospects we could certainly add.

 

Whomever we take at 7 will be a very good player. 

 

Tkachuk could fall. Bouchard, Dobson, Hughes, Smith Wahlstrom, Wilde are all possibly there. 

 

Anyone of those guys could end up being the second or third best player in the draft. Dahlin is such a  consensus talent, but stranger things have happened.

I'd target PHI as well. They also have two early mid firsts and Tanev would be a sizable upgrade on MacDonald for them and would give them a ridiculous top 4 with Tanev slotting in nicely on a 2nd, shutdown pair with Hagg.

 

Provorov, Gost

Hagg, Tanev

Now that it’s clear Canucks aren’t picking first......

 

Pettersson is a better prospect than Dahlin, yeah I said it. 

 

Let the Homerism flow through you, you know it to be true 

He's a better forward than Dahlin!

Thoughts on his game today for Sweden vs Finland

 

 

 

My comment is a little OT for this thread, but I really appreciate your last point re: power play fits with our current/future personnel at the top of the roster (Pettersson, Boeser, Horvat, etc), especially when it comes to Hughes.

 

I see Hughes fitting in very well with our young group and having the skillset to really play to the strengths and support the effectiveness of our key forwards, rather than compete/clash with them.

 

In a similar vein, I think the RH/LH thing is overblown, given that we actually have a bunch of RH shooters at forward, and most likely will run 4F 1D sets on the power play. 

 

Of course, RHDs come at a premium and we need to add some to the system from an overall depth/balance perspective. But when it comes to acquiring that future PPQB/PMD, I don’t think handedness should be a big concern. You choose the best player and then balance the RH/LH thing around him.

 

And honestly, outside of Dahlin, I strongly believe Hughes would be the best addition to our future roster, in terms of filling a serious need while complimenting the skills and strengths of the other young emerging stars in our system.

The Hughes train is quite comfortable.

Looks like Pettersson made the cut:

 

That Swedish coach....just creating drama by saying it was between EP and Lias Anderson....they both made the team and if he had left EP off the team the other 2/3rd's of the first line would have been pissed and the Swedish management might just have offed him....

 

...drama queen....

I hope so. Keep that puck hog away from Pettersson.

Is Nilsson going to be the starting goalie? I've heard of Gustavsson before but isn't he a fairly raw prospect?

I was actually at the games both against Russia and Finland.

 

Against Russia, Andersson played hard and was more noticeable playing with Zibanejad and I think Janmark, whereas EP played the safe game and deferred the puck quite a bit to Backlund.

 

Against Finland, EP showed that he is the best playmaker on the team whereas Andersson ended up playing on a checking line with Axel Johnsson-Fjallby. If anything, I think the last spot on the team was between Andersson and Johnsson-Fjallby.

 

EP played #1PP and was very dangerous with the puck. When Sweden had 5-on-3 PP, somehow, they went with Backlund-Zibanejad-Janmark. I guess Janmark for net front presence and OEL and Klingberg to QB the PP. But it was obvious that Backlund was not so effective making plays at the half wall as EP so they really got nothing done during 5-on-3.

 

I do have to give some props to Andersson and Johnsson-Fjallby. Andersson has NHL ready frame. Kind of built like Max Domi. He was engaged quite a bit physically and knocked off pucks off of the defenders effectively. Johnsson-Fjallby was a fast skater, reminded me a bit of Hansen.
