Looking forward to what this kid can do in the NHL. http://www.thedickinsonpress.com/sports/college/3954026-schlossman-brock-boeser-showing-why-hes-rare-player-these-days Schlossman: Brock Boeser showing why he’s a rare player these days By Brad Schlossman / Forum News Service Today at 12:49 a.m. GRAND FORKS -- Minnesota Duluth played a fine game Saturday night. There was only one problem: Brock Boeser found some open space for two seconds in the third period. That’s all it can take for the North Dakota freshman to decide a college hockey gam

  4. Food for thought. Just posted in the Trade thread too, but also deserves a look here: When we go past the eye test and the comments of GM's trying to convince their fan bases they won the deal we can look at the stats a little to compare Granny Smiths to Golden Delicious. Shinkaruk AHL shot rate age 21 = 2.37 shots per game Granlund AHL shot rate age 21 = 3.14 shots per game Shinkaruk AHL goals per game = .31 goals per game (119 games) 37 career goals Granlund AHL goals per game = .46 goals per game (85 games) 39 career goals Shinkaruk AHL Career

  6. Calgary Flames Season Report They finally did it! After two consecutive seasons of bottom 2 finishes, the Flames finally broke through in season 3 to secure the 5th seed in the Western Conference. Many would've thought the Flames were destined for another season with no playoffs, but after making major trades for Jonathan Quick and Max Pacioretty the doubters were hushed. Quick led the team, and showing why he is one of the best goaltenders in the league. Nominated for the Hart and the Vezina, Quick gave the Flames a chance to win every game. Pacioretty may

  8. Jim Benning on Shinkaruk and Gaunce. “The thing he likes to do is he likes to go to the net and score. But there are other parts of his game – like, an example, Brendan Gaunce maybe doesn’t have the offensive skill set like Hunter but all the details in his game are there so when we call (Gaunce) up, he can adjust to the pro game and help our team win.” http://www.metronews.ca/news/vancouver/2016/02/22/canucks-reportedly-trade-hunter-shinkaruk-to-calgary.html Gaunce is a completely different player compared to Shinkaruk.

  10. There's no way Batista gets that on the open market, barring some MVP performance this season. He's just pricing himself out of Toronto intentionally, if that's the case. I don't really blame him either. How many years of the team simply going half in and refusing to fill out the roster can you take before you get fed up.

  11. I was originally for having Virtanen in Utica to start next year, but he has been improving a lot recently. It wouldn't be a bad move to send him down, but I don't think it's completely necessary either. In terms of who could replace him, I think it would be Gaunce: Sedin - Sedin - Sutter Baertschi - Horvat - Hansen Burrows - Granlund - Etem Gaunce - Zalewksi - Dorsett Grenier

  21. Drouin is a 3rd overall in the first round. Granlund is a 2nd round pick, 40 something overall. I haven't even included the fact that Drouin is seen as a serious headcase that Yzerman is not dealing well with. People have this hard-on for former first round picks. Drouin's attitude makes him GARBAGE. I wouldn't trade for him using Weber. He seems like a locker room cancer.

  22. funny how quickly people forget the issues this kid went through the first two years he was in NA. This has been posted a thousand times but i guess it needs to be posted again. " But not so fast. Nagging, chronic shoulder tendinitis was so bad in parts of last season Rodin couldn’t shoot. Dave Gagner, the Canucks director of player development, said it could impact his chances of playing in the AHL. “With his shoulders, he gets a little bit sore and it affects his shot and passing and things like that,” Gagner said. “We just have to see how this summer progresses for him

  26. That I highly doubt.JB is cleaning up what MG did to this team and making us younger.He drafted us players that are playing in the NHL unlike MG!I just think a couple moves were questionable but altogether he has done a great job and is doing what he said he would!

  29. IMHO the fans on here are totally ignoring where this team will be when the Twins quit. That could easily be within 2 years either by choice or by injury. The Granlund trade was a safer option than keeping Shinkaruk in hopes that he could translate his game to the NHL. Gaunce has actually outplayed Shinkaruk this year IMO and I expect him to make the Canucks next year.

  32. Feel free to grab the ice time stats and layout an accurate p/60 if you would like. If Shinkaruks points per 60 is lower than Granlund than either Granlund is better or the coaches didn't trust Shinkaruk to play more at a similar age no? If Shinky's is higher more power to the we shouldn't have moved him thought, but I doubt it will be such a difference that we could make a solid justification. Here's a guess though If Granlund averaged 20 mins a game over his 85 AHL games his p/60 = 2.54 If Shinkaruk averaged 14 mins a game over his 119 AHL games

  33. If even but for one reason -- Granlund has actually made the NHL because he has NHL game. Shinkaruk right now does not.

  34. I can see him getting converted to wing imo, it is easier to go from C to wing than wing to C. At first I was extremely pissed off but the younger Grandlund has better numbers and size than I thought, -1 1/2 years older than Shinkaruk with 2 more years of pro experience. -46 points in 52 games in first AHL Season 28 points over 86 NHL games not amazing NHL numbers but I'm sure the quality of line mates was not exactly that great. this leads me to believe one of our centers is being included in a package for a more dynamic winger or d prospect. I would say D

  35. What a joke of a thread with so many people talking crap about Granlund. This is not and should not be a trade thread, this is Granlund thread. Let's keep the dialogue to MIkael Granlund. We just got a NHL ready prospect who is versatile, can play the Wing or Centre, can move up and down the lineup and has skill. THis kid has shown he can put up points and play on the D side of the ice. We gave away a 1 dimensional smallish , physically weak player who has proven nothing at the NHL level. We don't even know Shinkaruk will ever be a bona fide NHL player. I

  36. It's not as if Benning makes these decisions on his own. He met with his pro scouts who have scouted both Shinkaruk and Granlund. He discusses Shinkaruks progress with Travis Green He consults with John Weisbrod who has inside knowledge from the Flames organization on Granlund from last year He scouts Shinkaruk and Granlund himself The conclusion? Shinkaruk. There is some doubt as to whether Shinkaruk can be an effective goal scorer at the NHL level. Certainly not as a bottom 6 winger. As a junior, he was known for going to the greasy areas etc. I

  37. Seems to me that all the Canucks pro scouts were meeting over the weekend, presumably to 1) evaluate what the system has in the way of prospects, 2) to identify players from other systems who might fit and 3) to decide who they can reasonably give up. Monday rolls around and JB moves Shinkaruk out for Granlund. This was clearly not a one man decision, but a consensus. Shinkaruk is a finisher and with Daniel and Sven ahead of him, he wasn't going to get much of a chance to play above the third line. Brendan Gaunce has played a lot at left wing and has the smarts, size, speed and skills to be a

  40. Vey...also does that. Think about it. As would keeping Cracknell, or simply bringing up Gaunce to play C/LW Our organizational depth for true LWs now is Sedin, Baertschi, Kenins, Gaunce (also a C) and Higgins. When your depth includes Higgins and Kenins as true LWs and you trade your only offensive LW prospect for another center you are hard pressed to make this sound good. As for not being like Vey, same rough size, same rough AHL stats, same rough 1st year in the NHl, same issue with face offs same grit. Not getting a spot in the NHL because of Baerts
