Um I love Edler, don't get me wrong. But Subban and Ekholm are a tier above him. Edler just isn't as consistent. He looks fantastic this year which is great, he's one of my favorite all time Canucks when he's on his game.

Sure they are. Never said otherwise. But none of them are 2nd pair D.

I know it's been widely reported that Quinn will sign when his NCAA season is over but it's nice for Benning to confirm it again from the Canucks' side.

March 2 is their last game and they're not going to the Frozen Four tournament.

 

*Edit. They still play in the Big Ten tourney after that so it's not certain when his season will end. it could be as early as Mar 8-10. and Mar 23 is the championship game if they make it that far.

So assuming his 1st game could be the 6th against Toronto, that would give him 16 games for the Canucks. That's about 6 too many if we don't want to have to protect him in the expansion draft.

I got a feeling he will get some practices in and miss a few games because of that and probably get scratched once or twice throughout the rest of the season

I thought that for college players that even one game played counts the same as if he was out of the CHL and played over nines games... could be wrong on that but thought is was mentioned previously somewhere in one of these threads.

I know Sid has been saying that, but every other pundit is saying it's 10 games. I'd still like to know definitively what that rule is, because 10 games is manageable if we want to keep him under that number, but he will for sure get 1 game.

Yeah, I agree. Hutton works much better with Stecher and Guddy works much better with Edler. Although I was kind of thinking to pair Hughes with Guddy, mainly in the interests of keeping Hughes in one piece.

Quinn just scored on the powerplay...him and Lockwood looking good!

He's had 2-3 really good dangles where he could've scored as well.He was going through the guys like they were pylons.

Having the defensemen up top switch spots after the puck goes down low for a strong side one timer is becoming more and more popular. I saw Brannstrom score twice with that play at the WJC. With the way Hughes' shot is improving and his ability to move laterally across the blue line, he might even be able to pull that off at even strength.

I think on a contending team, Edler would be an ideal 2nd pairing.

Again, that's a bit (not entirely as I agree, they're better players) like saying Ekholm/Subban are an 'ideal' 2nd pairing.

 

For now, he's a solid #2, 1st pairing D. He very well could trend down to 2nd pair as he ages. Or if we're fortunate enough that he remains a #2 and we have the luxury of two better D that push him to 2nd pair ... Well we're laughing.

Have to say, Quinn’s shot has improved a lot in the last few months compared to what I witnessed at the WJC. 

 

Can’t wait till he joins us!

Quinn will not be going to Vancouver until at least March 10th. If UM wins the best of 3 Vancouver will have to wait till the 16th which is the semis, and if UM advances to the finals that’ll be on the 23rd. If UM wins that, the. Vancouver will have to wait until around April since that means UM will be in the NCAA tournament. If they lose at any point in that stretch Quinn will be coming to Vancouver. 

 

I'm definitely not going to cheer for UM to lose so hopefully he goes to Vancouver as late as possible :towel:

Quinn with 1G 1A tonight in the biggest game of the year so far. Now with 31 in 27, Lockwood has 27 in 31.

What is this new sorcery, and why aren't they standing on their X's?

That shot goes in ...every time in the NHL as well...the goalie had to track back from his right side and the shot was top left corner and moving along at a good enough clip to beat Price or anyone else for that matter.

 

Coming to rink near you...nearly now...!

With the way EP's skating is improving and QH's shot is improving....

 

We may ...have Gretzky-Coffey 2.0 coming ....

 

I think that warrants a  Just Watch as well...!
