My understanding is that Luke is a UFA on July 1, 2019.  I think they will offer him a 1 year deal or possibly 2 years if it is a 2 way deal.

I think you misread the original post as it was referring to Luke's brother Brayden.

Which experienced GM (or President) would our owner hire though?  I think JB is doing a great job, considering the owner we have.  

You may be right, I doubt many high quality GMs would work for this ownership group.

Since when does jb know how important toughness is, he assembled the softest easiest team to play against in the history of this club. 

Remeber all the JB homers defending “the new nhl” size and toughness aren’t important as jb drafted 4’ players now we see the scf and he’s wants old slow Lucy and toughness. The no plan plan continues. 

Hes had one d man that was suppose to be that and one fourth liner that hits. Since he’s been here. 

Now it’s about face and all the homers need to agree with what jb tells them to think again....and it’s the same thing  that some of us have been saying as he assembled the buttercup squad. 

JB needs to go and a GOOD NHL  gm that demands full autonomy needs to be hired. No more rookie fist puppets. 

 

Virtanen

Horvat

Boeser

Roussel

Tryamkin and Schenn*hopefully return*

Those are tough players to play against

 

Or are you mad that he drafted the soft swede over Glass?

Boeser?  hard to play against?  He's not hard to play against.  He's an excellent player, but he's not really hard to play against.

as he gets stronger he will be. I hope he focuses on skating vs. hitting the gym hard again.

I think the term 'hard to play against' shouldn't be the focus -- but 'strong and able to stand up to physical play' should be. 

This can be either/or dishing out or resisting getting rubbed out and survive in the playoffs, and I think these all fit:

 

Virtanen

Horvat

Boeser 

Roussel

Levo

Pearson

Beagle

Erickson

 

Juries out on:

Sutter

Gaudette

Motte

Grandlund

Pettersson

Petey is hard to play against.  He's likely the hardest guy on our team to play against.  He is a threat to score every shift.  That's hard to play against.

No argument about that from me, but then why did you post that Boeser is not hard to play against?

As for my post:

 

I'm simply stating we don't know how he will stand up to a playoff grind.

Boeser doesn't control the game like Petey.  Boeser is great at what he does - finishing.  Petey controls the game by possessing the puck.  That's hard to play against.

I agree actually, the puck possession isn't all that makes Petey hard to play against, but that he brings so many other facets to the game.  He is an elusive skater, he is a depth passer and shooter, he controls the puck like you said, he finishes his checks despite his lanky size, and he comes back hard on the back check.  There are so many elements to his game that make him very hard to play against.

 

For Brock, I agree too he is a one trick pony right now.  If he isn't scoring goals and finishing plays off, he doesn't offer a whole lot more.  I do believe Brock needs to learn to bring other elements to his game besides goal scoring just to make him a more well rounded player overall, but also keeps the competition guessing with him too.  I saw a lot of those elements when he was playing for North Dakota, but he seems to have focused more on the goal scoring side in the NHL.  Started to see some of that evolving in his game in the last 15 games of the season.  Started to become harder on the puck in board battles, and was skating hard on the backcheck (where I thought he was really lazy in the first 3/4 of the season).

 

I do agree though, Petey is a play driver, and Boeser is more of the complementary finisher of play drivers.

We need them both though.  Brock's ability to finish makes Petey more effective.  Those two guys, Bo, Hughes, OJ, and Demko are untouchable in my view.

Hm, I guess GMJB just doesn't get how toughness works in the league since he never played... Oh, wait a minute, he did? ;-)

So.....how about that Schenn guy.

 

I hope they sign him for a 1 year 1 million contract. We could use the toughness in some games.

Would not mind if it was two years. Would be good for Quinn to be paired with him and have added confidence that Schenn has his back.

The #Canucks talked with Luke Schenn’s agent at the draft but no deal so he can talk with teams starting tomorrow when the UFA interview period begins.

 

 

That sucks. He should be a priority to sign.
