I still don't see how Seattle would be interested in a, by then, 35 year old Edler.  

True, they wouldn’t be.  However, if Eddy has a NMC then we have to protect him regardless.  I say, we let Eddy walk.

Expansion rules are different. 

Do be eligible for expansion Hughes would need to play at least 10 games. Playoff games count toward this total.

 

However, collage players that sign at the end of the season and play in 1 game have their first year of ELC activated and burned. This is why Boeser is up for a raise and why next year is gaudettes contract year.

 

If you look back a page Alf there is a much clearer post about this subject

 

Hope it helps

Your post is the easiest I’ve read to understand.  Thanks!  :)

Liked him and Dobson more than the rest. Someone should also tell Sportsnet that his first name is actually "Quinton" and not "Quintin".

Changing the topic, going through the first few pages of the thread...

 

It's Quintin, not Quinton. LOL

Based on this, I'd think Hughes plays his first game Vs. Ottawa on March 20th.

I can see Lockwood and Madden in Utica, where they will both do really well. 

As a Canucks fan I hope they do well Alf.

 

But I think it bears pointing out that people thought Lind, Gajo and Palmu would LIGHT UP the AHL and, well.....I realize each player is his own project - all I'm saying is let's for once, be reasonable with these kids - not that you aren't being reasonable, but we know many aren't.

I think the adjustment from junior to the AHL is more difficult than from US college hockey.  The junior guys dominate over 16 year olds.  The college guys dominate over men.  As for Palmu, I think he's just not good enough, regardless of where he plays.

One plus side of junior is there schedule is very similar in sheer volume of games and the scheduling of back to back games on the weekend.

 

But yes college players usually play higher quality of hockey due to a higher age bracket, but the scheduling of games hits them the hardest..

Quinn will be here for sure this March.  I can see Lockwood and Madden in Utica, where they will both do really well.  

I agree on Quinn likely to sign and be in Vancouver before the end of the season.

 

If Lockwood signs he would likely do a stint with the Comets this year and Madden would be best off staying in the NCAA for another year and work on putting on a bit more muscle on that skinny frame of his

Does anyone know how Madden is doing for size? Unless he has really packed it on, (I think he was in 150's when drafted), I think another year in College, probably wouldn't hurt him.

I imagine how lethal our OT unit will be. We may never enter another shootout again lol

 

Pettersson - Boeser

Hughes

 

 

Until all 3 players mature further, those 3 may end up scoring as many as they allow. So, yeah we will see very few shootouts (win or lose). 

 

I think NHL should make 3-on-3 a bit longer too. Like 10 minutes would be great, but even 7-8 minutes would decide a lot of games.

one of the primary advantages to the canucks keeping the farm club in utica is that most of their games are a short bus trip away, and with he games mostly clustered around the weekends, it leaves a lot of time for weight training, skills work, and other development needs. college has the same benefits, but the canucks have a greater degree of oversight if the player is working within their system.

I'd just rather he's playing top 6 minutes in College next season, instead of every second game in Utica.

Quinn, yes. Lockwood will probably sign but im not sure he'll play in the bigs but I could be wrong. I think Madden should stay one more year in college

Bill Muckalt... that's a name I haven't heard in a long time.  

Was disappointed that he was traded away when he was really starting to hit his stride with the team.
