So what's going to stop everyone from running Boeser and Granny this year?

 

Simple as that. 

 

Thoughts?

Who did we have protecting him last year? It's 2017. The Dave Semenko days are long gone.

If Virtanen actually makes the team, he'll do. It's not the most ringing endorsement but Filip Forsberg probably remembers the night he dropped the gloves with the wrong dude, anyway. Let's see what Jake does against someone in his weight class.

He's gotta point.  No one likes being pushed around.  

 

Labate Guance Virtanen because Dorsett gets traded

They won't need to take runs at our guys they simply need to keep them to the outside in the ozone which is easy enough to do.

Granlund is feisty, he can stick up for himself if need be. We did loose some toughness in Tryamkin and more importantly Sbisa last year which sucks. Guddy should hopefully be healthy all year providing some pushback, leader ship (and hopefully better play) from the back end. Dors will looking to make up for lost time last year. We saw some young guys do what they need to do in Hutton and Horvat last year. 

 

Further more guys like Lebate, Pedan, Virtanen act could step up during injuries to help out if the team needs some extra push back. When Biega plays he leads the team in hits and he should probably see some time in the NHL or at least be leading the team in the AHL helping develop guys like the previous mentioned.

 

I'm not to worried about grit, let's make sure we can score some goals and go from there.

Then there is always the story of Sather not wanting to pay Semenko a huge pay increase AND then Gretzky went to see Mr. Sather for 15 minutes and Semenko got a massive (for the day) $250,000.00 contract. At the time Gretzky was the highest paid in the league at 1 million/year.

 

Virtanen isn't a fighter and has shoulder problems, Guddy is coming off wrist surgery and Dorsett neck surgery.

 

The Nucks are hoping game management plays a bigger role than last year, the team is starting to see a lot more PP's  the worse they get.

Hutton and Horvat both had there first fights toward the end of the season and both did alright...Bo is an Ox and if he can stand up for his line once or twice a year...that would keep them safe enough.

 

Boeser probably doesn't need much protection and we will have Dorsett back in full form (or he will get waived if he can't "go" anymore)...(sad but true)

Gudbranson's wrist should be 100% by then....he is still a young horse.

Jake will play at least half the season with us.

Labate and Pedan will both earn injury call-ups.

MacEwen may be ready before you know it..... 

 

....the Sedin's are taking boxing lesson's...

 

....okay ....I made that last bit up....
