Virtanen would actually fit in well with Philadelphia. Both drafted the same year in the first round. Canucks could sure use some help on D, and with more forward prospects up and coming, maybe Jake would also benefit from a new start. He's been dumped on here by a lot of people.

Jake is floundering?  :blink: 

 

he made his presence felt last night. I don't see why Philly would give up on Sanheim either.

I wouldn't say he is floundering, he had a solid game last game. Just seems like management/coaching staff have an idea of what they want him to do. Be a solid energy guy on the 3rd line. I guess it's just about time we stop hoping something will change and that he'll get any sort of looks as a top 6 guy.

If management gets any inkling of a hint that he's becoming a Tom Wilson type, he stays.  

 

Before Tom (who was in his 5th season) broke out with 35 points in 78 games, he was at 69 points in 313 games (0.22/ game). 
Jake, in his 3rd season, put up "career bests" of 20 points in 75 games (0.24/ game), while playing around 12 minutes.  He is also driving the net pretty hard.

Wilson's breakout can largely be attributed to being on the same line as Ovie on the top unit, though of course he earned that spot.

If Jake can get nearly the same say with Pettersson or if he's the 3rd big player with Bo and Brock, that could easily elevate his production.

 

In short, he's looking better in his trajectory, and I'd rather not give up on him (same goes for Hutton) just yet.

I was waiting for this.....

 

Preseason he has been sloppy.  That being said a lot of other guys have too.  I bet you 100% the most frustrated person about it is Jake.

 

I think Jake is just trying to force things a bit.  Once he settles in and starts finding his groove he'll be fine.

No, He's too young for trade away. Lets not forget Todd Bertuzzi and Cam Neely !

So because of one mistakes 32 years ago, we shouldn't trade any young players?  

 

Based on that logic, we should have never traded Stojanov for Naslund.  Might has well been more patient with Schneider too instead of trading him for Horvat...

 

Win some, lose some.

Trade away but don't trade Virtanen unless the haul is massive as you will regret it.   Such a unique combination of speed/size/skill and with this team projecting to be playoff competitive in the next few years, having this sort of player is almost essential for success.   Few of these players are ever acquired by trade - they are more typically homegrown and patiently.

Virtanen has size and speed like no others and he is still way to young to trade away. There is a reason Jim picked him so high in the draft, to trade him away now for next to nothing would be idiotic

I think he's looking better than ever. He's getting under the other teams skin and it could be argued that we completed the comeback last night, partially because his play got to Los Angeles and inspired the guys on the bench to kick it up another gear. We seemed to find new energy after his encounter in the 3rd.
