But the OP says we are getting Panarin rebuild done,  parade mic drop. 

 

Give him credit for the positivity, even if it’s border line delusional.  And I must say I prefer seeing those three guys then reading more posts about how we can get Hughes bros and what that would cost (Raymond, Ballard and a third).

The rebuild is far from done. I was listening to Botchford and he did make some points how The Canucks need to execute the off season perfectly and he does have a point.

He highlighted that the team around Horvat, Boeser, Hughes, and Petterson are just not good enough and there are too many similar bottom 6 grinders in the team.

Is that you Botch?

Botchford is preaching to the choir. CDCers have noted that the 'missing pieces' are all top end pieces. #1 LD, #1 RD, #1 LW. If you ignore the constant whine of the eternally negative CDCers, consensus is that the foot soldiers of our team are pretty well taken care of ! A little tweeking will always be in the works, but three, maybe four, big pieces need to be added!

What’s Hughes if he’s not a number one D?

For the rebuild to be done this team needs no less than Lind, Gaudette, Woo, Brisebois, Demko, Dipietro and Juolevi to all make massive strides next year while ensuring we retain Boeser for no more than $6.5 million AND finding a minimum of 2 NHL quality players in both of the next 2 drafts while intriducing depth to Utica every year for the next few seasons to supplement the big club.

 

So no, we're not done rebuilding but we're finally on our way.  This is the first time I have seen the team at this stage of a series of low years NOT trade youth and futures for right now and it's nice to see.

 

So rebuild, not done

Contend......:lol:.

The only thing this team will contend for is another lottery let down. 

Jimmie better hope his goaltender can save his job again next season.pretty sure it’s the only reason he’s working right now. 

With out markstroms ridiculous (career year .you know why they call it that right.) play we would be picking top 5.

Im willing to bet Panarin gets near Mcjesus money. What does that tell to BB EP and Hughes?

Not much tbh... the guys know it's just the way FA works. (ex. Horvat signing for $5.5M while Eriksdone was already making $6M)

What's more mind boggling is that a 6 mill player on the 4th line!?!

My thought is this:

 

1) Forwards:  By the end of this summer, the goal for Vancouver should be to have their forward lines completely built and set for both the short term and long term.

 

A) A top line LW’er via Panarin, Duchene, or Skinner).

 

B-) A 2nd line RW’er via Dzingel, Connolly, or a promotion of Adam Gaudette.

 

2) Defense:  Hypertarget defensemen drafting and University recruiting.

 

The Canucks aren’t close to being a contender yet, or even close to finishing their rebuild, but I do think they are two forwards away from having their forward lines completely built (top line LW + 2nd line RW).  The Canucks have the cap space to make this a reality by the end of this summer imo.

So rebuild, not done

I agree with you and Thorn. Not only are pieces still needed but developing the team with those pieces will take time. While I think the Canucks can make the playoffs next year all the other teams are improving as well. I still think it is another 3 years before the club can be serious CUP contenders. As you rightly point out the existing depth have to all progress faster than should be expected for the Canucks to do any damage next year. Next year will be another development year.

Even a broken clock can be right twice a day.

Botchford is right in this.  We lack enough high end talent, and we don't have any coming.

We need to clear away the "flotsam and jetsam" as they put it on 1040.

Sutter, Eriksson, Schaller, Granlund, Goldobin, Biega, Spooner, Pouliot are all guys you should try to trade away for picks and prospects... or in packages for better players.  IF none of those guys were on our team next year we should be happy.  They are all easily replaceable.  Virtanen, Hutton, and Tanev could also be moved for higher end young talent,

If you can turn any combination of those guys into a top 6 winger and/or a top 4 RD with a point shot... we are way ahead on the deal.  Our picks after this year should be in play as long as we are getting a young, club controlled guy for the top half of our roster in return.

Add in a couple of the best UFAs who will agree to come here and we actually have a chance to move in the right direction without just praying and hoping all our players have career years, don't get hurt, and our goaltending can be great.
