And to think people wanted Jake Wise... great game by Madden and Hughes!

Lol when it comes to drafting , i leave it to the canucks brass. They clearly know what they are doing.

Is madden ahead of Gaudette 's development schedule /path? 

Because if so, that's fantastic news as I'm already sold on Gaudette

No he is not ahead of Gaudette's development at the same age. But he is very close.

Just got back from watching the days games.  Thought Madden was a contender, along with Evan Barrett, for USA's 2nd best forward.

Would you say he looked better than Lockwood from last year team?

That's a tricky question ; they play different style games imo.  Lockwood only played 2 1/2 games last year but I was overall fairly impressed with his play.  Madden doesn't have the same wheels , he's not a bad skater but doesn't have the power/speed Lockwood has.  He does,imo, look better with the puck on his stick and around the net compared to Lockwood.  If I had to choose between the two at this point I would go with Madden.  He's a smart player and while not big by any means, doesn't shy away from contact/tough areas .  I was impressed.

Pettersson

Horvat

Gaudette

Madden

 

I think it is safe to say we are set at the centre position for the next 10+ years.  Thank you Jim Benning.  With of course a shout out to Mike Gillis (BO)…  :)

Is Madden really a 4th line type of Centre? Doesn't he lack size?

Top 6 winger when he gets to NHL.

His father was 200 pounds and had great speed and was a two way force down the middle for New Jersey when they won their Cups, so it's possible Tyler can fill out and get much bigger and stronger and play a similar game.  He would really need to step it up to reach the level of Gaudette over the next 3 years but it is always possible he becomes more of an offensive force and ultimately becomes a 3rd line centre type.  If that is the case then either Tyler or Gaudette would have to switch to the RW or one of them plays 4C with some bigger wingers surrounding them (Zack MacEwen).  Or we use one as trade bait to get a defenceman.  Nice problem to have but right now I just wanna see Madden's development from here on out.  Can he win the Hobey Baker award like Gaudette?  Let's hope for the best.  The Canucks have a bright future down the middle.  Only 3 years ago we had almost nothing other than BO.  Now centre might be our strongest position.

Gaudette's Freshman year he had 30 pts in 41 games.  Madden has 15 pts in 14 games so far.  I don't think he needs to step it up, just keep doing what he is doing.

Madden looks like a top 6 performer drives the play and has great vision . I think the US had an off game , Madden is very noticeable at both ends of the ICE in a good way.

Best player on the ice last night, for the full 200 feet.  He's listed as 150, but he sure plays a lot bigger and for someone who didn't go through the us development program to be out protecting the lead in the last minute was a huge feather in his cap.  

 

He might be a real hidden gem if he continues on this path.

I see Madden as having better puck skills than Gaudette.

Ya Madden already has more offensive skills then Gaudette. Add in his ability to play defence effectively as well and we have a pretty complete player
