I don't know how I feel. I know he's good, but another contract we need to wait for. Not sure how this plays out

Great pick.  High floor and ceiling and plays with some edge.  Not much to not like.

sounded like the rink booed the pick, what was the expectation with number 10 ?

I like the pick he looks like a gritty highly skilled player. Looking forward to seeing him play in a few years.

Is there any way we can entice him back a year early?

If the Canucks can negotiate with his KHL club to be released a year earlier that’d be fantastic. But I wouldn’t hold my breath. Better to wait then to mess his development up like we did kinda with Virtanen.

Also stoked about rolling petey and bo at centre and being able to alternate podkolzin and brock on any given night

 

winger - petey - boeser

winger - bo - podkolzin

Pod can play NOW, but cause he has a contract wit KHL and from what people have said they dont break contracts sooner :( so ya we have to wait a year or two, but this guy can play now, we just gotta wait

All or nothing pick. Podkolzin either becomes a big time player for us or won’t play at all. 

 

I’m admittedly nervous about it but the Canucks scouting staff has earned the benefit of the doubt at this point.

The contract could be a good thing.  Let the KHL keep developing him and then get him on an ELC a bit later than we otherwise would have

so stoked! 

 

assuming he pans out as advertised, he will be a star for us in a few years when we're hopefully contending. off the books in the meantime.. 

 

also, since he doesn't help us in the short term, maybe we draft a bit higher because of that? I don't know, but I'm pumped..
