Justin Bailey | RW

Recommended Posts

This kid has definetly earned the next call up when needed. He's been on another level the last dozen games.

Very unselfish play by Lind with the goalie pulled on a two on one with Bailey - Lind had an easy shot himself, dished to Bailey for the hat trick - third hat trick in four games for Bailey.  Amazing.

Gotta give this guy a chance, he’s earned it. Players need to be shown they’ll be rewarded for this kind of play.

I agree. Was listening to the radio the other day an the Utica reporter was basically saying how Bailey is one of the fastest players in the league. Could easily fit in Schallers spot on the fourth line. I don’t see Sutter as a fit there...Sutter needs to be traded so we can look at some comets. Lind is close too.

The trouble is, he's had call ups these last 4 seasons, 3 with Buffalo and one with Philly.  Total 63 NHL games with 5 goals and 4 assists to show for it.  May be another Boucher

Bring him up and have him play a game at RW.  Size, speed and scoring.  Canucks should use their depth players more and see what they have in players like Justin Bailey.

one more goal and he will have tied his all time record for goals in an AHL season.

wouldn't expect too much out of Bailey. 

 

Bottom six guy for sure. Is he any good on the PK?

Boucher is too small and doesn’t play a bottom 6 style of hockey. Justin Bailey is 6’4” 215 pounds. He likely was playing on the 4th line when he got those point totals. Which aren’t gonna be much different or if at all to anybody playing on our 4th line now. If there’s an opportunity to move out some bottom 6 guys we should collect some picks and promote guys like MacEwen and Bailey.

Same age as Motte and Horvat.  Obviously still developing and hitting career highs.  Is an interesting find for the team and other guy that improves the depth.  

 

There is a reason why we are still playing so well with Sutter, Ferland and Leivo hurt. Depth.  

 

Maybe with Jake playing so well Jake moves up and Bailey could get a look with Gaud and Roussell.  Jake looked pretty good with Petey.

I look at the buffalo teams he played on and his minutes with them.  I think this kids got some jam and might be a decent support player or pleasant surprise.

Does he use his speed on the forecheck and run D men over and hit everything that moves? If so, he could be useful to us, that is how Zack MaC needs to play if he wants to get regular NHL ice time with us imo

Neither one is known for being overly aggressive....but if they hit like Tchapuke...they would be suspended...Papa puke must be friends with Pronger....

that's too bad, bigger bodied players need to play with an edge if they are NHL tweeners. Otherwise enjoy the AHL or Europe for a hockey career imo

Yeah, Buffalo and the Oilers, seems to had mirrored each other during the past decade: in the draft and asset management.  Still alot of games left.

To be fair those Buffalo teams were just awful and he was only 21/22 years old.  I think he has earned some consideration with his play this year.  As we have seen all players don't develop equally.  With his size and speed it would be a shame to lose him without giving him a chance.  Imagine he is the next Kassian without the fisticuffs.  Kassian's trajectory is not far off if you look at his stats at the same age.  Kassian had issues but maybe all Bailey needs is the right opportunity.

Still alot of games left and he might still get a chance; hopefully, those are meaningful games (fingers crossed).
