Jim Bennings interview at the draft last year after he got Quinn Hughes is priceless. “Over the moon” were his words. I hope he becomes the number one defenceman we’ve been waiting for.

I’m looking forward to see what he can do at the nhl level. I was in Brooklyn for the Canucks and islanders in November. What stood out to me was how good Matthew Barzal is, his skating and hockey I.Q., is amazing. He is a fantastic player to watch. I hope Quinn Hughes can do the same or better.

You here the term "edge work' thrown around loosely, this guy is the poster boy for it! Incredible skating.

Eichel + Dahlin, but only because Dahlin could become an absolute superstar that drives his team to a cup. Q Hughes could be great in the future but theres far more uncertainty about his defensive game.

Yes still a lot of question marks for hughes, after seeing Dahlin in the nhl at 18 there are no more question marks for him.. just one, how good will he get?

Quinn's control of his skating is incredible. My brother got to see him live in the WJC and was absolutely floored at the way he skates. Its like forecheckers trying to catch a bumblebee (not the car!)

I would too, but would be happy either way.  EP40 and Dahlin would be pretty deadly too.  

 

IMO I would take EP40 over Eichel.  

 

When Eichel was drafted, he was supposed to be nearly as good as Mc David.  EP40 is having a much better rookie season in Comparison to Eichel. 

 

While Hughes is yet to play a game in the NHL, he and Dahlin will be compared to each other, whether gkkd or bad for a while.  

 

What Hughes can do with his skating is so unpredictable and I dont know how you defend him.  

 

His shot, while frequent, isnt nearly as good as Dahlin.  Having a net presence player at forward will be crucial to maximizing Hughes offence.  

 

A guy like Gads if he can ever get his skating up to par.  Think Holstrom like.

I usually quite enjoy your posts compared to most of the rubbish on these boards. I was just surprised that you decided to be crude. No big deal.

Crude?   Have you ever stepped into a dressing room or even had a chat with guys over a beer?    Seriously dude, if you find that crude you are on an entirely different plan for sense of humour.  I will apologize simply as I don't like offending people unintentionally.

EP and QH

 

I don't like Eichel's hair, looks like his Grandma gave him a real tight Toni perm lol (good player though)

I'd go with the 2 Sabres for now.

I like EP better than Eichel

Dahlin has proved it in the NHL at 18, Hughes still has some question marks.  

 

End of next year my answer may very well change, but for now, the 2 Sabres.

I was not offended Rob, and trust me I’ve been around more than most, I guess I just don’t appreciate that type of adolescent humour. No need to apologize.

Here's the thing. You have no idea who's reading these comment, it can be young children who think it's OK. Look around the dressing room you see a bunch of reprobate you couldn't shock if you tried

The current list is changed in the Canucks favour comparing to the one of Feb 12 posted on the previous page - two more Canucks prospects ( Juolevi and Woo) are included in the list with Quinn Hughes still in the first place.

How accurate has this system been over the years? It looks legit.

That’s a very good question.  Why is Fabbro ranked so low?

Yeah his numbers are almost as good as Hughes. I’m guessing it has to do with zone entries and whatnot. If it’s accurate though it looks good for us having 3 defenders on there.

I guess there’s some sort of fancy stat way to get this list, but many of these guys play in different leagues, and play different roles.  I guess Hughes, Fabbro, and Makar play similar, but OJ and Woo are very different from those three.  We do have three guys, like you say, do that says good stuff about our future. :towel:

I’m not surprised to see Hughes and Juolevi on there, but I’m definitely surprised at how well Woo is doing.

So true about Woo.  These kinds of lists are usually for the offensive minded Dmen.  Woo is more of a rock solid guy, who is putting up some decent numbers, but that’s not the only part of his game, or even the best part.

Did we steal a top D man in Woo?  Wasn’t Edler a third rounder?
