Canucks crowded forward group.

Recommended Posts

So. Canucks have quite a few forwards after the offseason. I'll keep it short. Who makes the team?

 

Sedin, Sedin, Loui, Sutter, Bo, Baer, Vanek, Gagner, Granlund = 9 players. None of these guys will play in Utica. 

 

That leaves.....

 

Boeser, Gaunce, Goldobin, Rodin, Burmistrov, Dorsett, Virtanen to battle for 3 spots. Throw Megna and Chaput in there too if you want lol.

 

So, who makes it? Take into consideration Canucks probably don't want young guys on 4th line.

I say to heck with the traditional '4th line grinder' mentality.  Let guys who can play the game fill the fourth line, it's not going to kill the a young guy or two to play NHL minutes in a limited role.

I see a trade coming. Baertschi and Hutton to Carolina for one of they're promising defensemen. Jake Bean?

Well that's what I basically said lol,  I was actually thinking about how the line up could look like before I came online. I just switched the top 2 lines.

That is intriguing. (the trade idea) but is Jake Bean worth Hutton and Baer? They're both young and skilled, already proven NHLers.

 

My guess with the prospects/players:

 

D. Sedin - H. Sedin - Vanek

Baertschi - Horvat - Gagner

Granlund - Sutter - Eriksson

Gaunce - Burmistrov - Dorsett

White

 

Utica: Boeser, Goldobin, Virtanen, Rodin*, Molino, Boucher, Chaput, Megna, Labate

 

* or could be traded

Baertschi -  Bo -  Boeser/ Vanek

Sedins - Vanek/ Boeser/ Loui/ Granlund/ Goldobin

Loui - Sutter- Granlund/ Gaunce

_______  - Gagner- _______

 

Fill in the blanks with Gaunce, Burmistrov, Dorsett, Virtanen and Rodin.

 

Now as the top 2 lines get injured Virtanen and Rodin should have dips for the spots.

Not a bad idea. These teams don't have many bodies signed yet:

NJ : 16

FLO : 18

COL: same

 

Don't mind a 2 or 3 for 1, if it's the right piece coming back.

Gaunce, Burmistrov, Dorsett, Chaput and Megna stay with the Canucks.

Boeser, Virtanen, Dahlen, Goldobin and Rodin down to Utica.

 

This team needs to have players capable of playing top 6 minutes on the roster.  In the few years there have been too many players forced in to a top 6 role that they simply cannot fulfill and this must crust morale.  Vanek can still play 2nd line minutes so that you don't need to force Chaput up the line-up.  Let this crop of prospects spend a full season of hockey in Utica and watch them build chemistry and hopefully dominate their division.  Then, in 12 months time, bring up 3 or 4 and see how they do.  There is not a single prospect in this organization that has been over-seasoned in the AHL and boy, the Comets could have a kickass team this season.

But there was a time where we did, with Jensen being right at the top of the list of notables, and not allowing him the opportunity to crack the lineup ruined him.

 

If a kid is ready, play him.

 My guess is, JB doesn't think any of our kids (at forward) are truly ready, or he wouldn't have signed so many UFAs.

Not that I agree, but if that truly is the case, it's kind of depressing. 

 

Speaking only as a selfish fan, Boeser was going to be one of the main reasons I tuned in this season. If he doesn't crack the lineup because of this, I really don't have much reason to watch games or follow the team this year. 

 

Forgive me for being immensely disappointed that I likely won't get to see our top prospect and potential Calder candidate play a full season because of this signing.

For me it was Tryamkin I looked forward to watching.  Boeser is a ticket seller.  I would love to see him with the Twins.  I hope Boeser, Virtanen, and Goldobin come out flying, and force their way into the lineup.  My worry is that Stecher did that last season, and still got sent down so Larsen could get that spot.  If a young guy earns a spot, I want him to get on the team, and an older guy put on waivers.  No more holding spots for underperforming vets.
