In Topic: Predict the Canucks bottom 6

20 September 2014 - 05:57 AM

As much as I like Bo Horvat and want him on Canucks lineup I don't see much of a space for him. Only way for him to get significant time is to overplay both Vey and Richardson, not speaking of Mathias. Ideal place for secure season for Bo would be between two defensivly responsible forwards in Higgins and Hansen, the 3H Line lol. Or centering 4th line between Richardson/Mathias and Dorsett. Seems unlikly though. 

 

ver 1:

D.Sedin - H.Sedin - Vrbata

Burrows - Bonino - Kassian

Higgins - Horvat - Hansen

Mathias - Richardson - Dorsett

 

ver 2, more realistic:

D.Sedin - H.Sedin - Vrbata

Burrows - Bonino - Kassian

Higgins - Vey - Hansen

Mathias - Horvat - Dorsett.

 

ver 3, the most realistic:

D.Sedin - H.Sedin - Vrbata

Burrows - Bonino - Kassian

Higgins - Vey - Hansen

Mathias - Richardson- Dorsett

 

No way I see Hansen in the 4th line and Vey will not center 4th line either.


In Topic: Brendan Gaunce Talk

He looked a lot better and more comfortable when he was switched to a bottom 6 role. I'm still very excited about Gaunce, he's going to be our tough minute muncher. I think he's going to be our new Manny Malhotra in a few years.

Moved to bottom 6 in his case is facing easier competition. He's nowhere near Manny Malhotras of the world. 

 

His foot speed and skating is disastrous for a first round pick. He'd better work his butt off this season in Utica or he may face perspective to be on the move come D-day. 

 

Maybe I'm too hard on him but right now I can't see any significant progress from previous years.
