I'd be pretty shocked to not see one of Rafferty, Brisebois, Juolevi or Sautner on the big team next year. Even if it's just Sautner as 7th.

 

I also think Woo, (assuming he shows well) could easily bump Teves or Eliot.

Up till the point Teves got hurt this year in Utica, he was the best defensive D there. Not the same guy afterward, maybe lingering effects of the injury. Coming season, though, and a chance to heal and train may see his game return.

And if so, we have some good depth to potentially trade.

 

Either way, I'm not seeing the 'problem' with fitting Woo in. He's our own high draft pick who's trending well. They'll make sure his development is a priority so long as he continues to trend well.

didn't he end up in Kalamazoo? granted I didn't watch anything but highlights out of Utica but this is the first I've heard of Teves being Utica's best defence man.

It would be surprising to me if Woo didn't make Utica next season. I also can't see how Teves cracks the left side on the Canucks. I guess he could get picked off waivers but why?

Hopefully  he can turn into a Bieksa type player 

I would hope he's far better defensively.

I think if he becomes anything close to Bieksa we should be extremely happy. Only about 30% of all 2nd round picks become NHL players and Bieksa was good enough for 10+ seasons in the NHL.

Teves was a large part of Rafferty's success in the first half of the season.  Usually playing together, he was the defensive conscience of that pairing

interesting. Losing Teves didn't effect BR's production at all tho, just checked and he had 22 pts in the 1st half, 23 pts in the second 1/2 of his season.

True. - although he did replace Ollie on the 1st unit PP when Juolevi went down with injury. And his +/- did take a bit of a hit when he lost Teves (as did Teves when he returned. - iirc he wasn't paired with Rafferty those last few games).  

 

They were a formidable pair together, although I do see Rafferty coming to the Canucks before Teves. I could see him thriving paired with Edler next season

What's the likelihood Woo makes the cut for Utica next year assuming they have another season this year?

I thought Teves became the forgotten man in Utica and I believe some one mentioned that he didn't look quite right after his return from injury

I don’t see why he wouldn’t?    
Id say 95% he will be a comet next year. 
If they play.

I'd like to know what happened with Teves too.  He was looking so good early in the season, almost on par with Rafferty, then seemed to drop off the Utica radar completely part way through the season.

Woo is going to be a polarizing player for me.

I'm looking forward to tracking his progression as a pro.

Imo, he's going to be an important piece to Vancouvers future success.

He may never become an offensive star but, who knows?

He could become more the player he was in his draft year.

If we get a Tanev type with higher intensity, I'd call picking him a win.

Plays more like a 'Bieksa' than a 'Tanev' IMO.

I could be wrong but I tend to think Woo may have regressed. Twice he failed to make the Cdn WJC roster, that's not inspiring, heck I think Focht came closer to making the team. We can all hope that maybe the pro game may suit him better.

You should reread what I actually said. I said he he was our best DEFENSIVE defenceman PRIOR to being injured. In the first part of the season he lead the team in +/- by a large margin at the same time as being defensively dominant by direct perception of watching the games. When he returned from injury his play had fallen off considerably and appeared no better than average.

I do think Woo will be a NHL D man not sure if he will be as good as Tanev? Woo 6'0, 20 yrs, 200lbs,  plays more gritty and is a agitator, decent skater NHL in 2-3 years
