    Other than NHL hockey (Canucks fan): other sports I enjoy watching are NFL football (Steelers fan) and PGA Golf.

    Big fan of heavy metal music (Iron Maiden, Amon Amarth, Sabaton, Lamb of God, Arch Enemy, Cavalera Conspiracy, Dark Tranquility, Insomnium).

    Enjoy travel, been all over North America, but I've also been to Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Mexico and the Caribbean, Singapore).

    I really enjoy running, and since 1990 I've finished 30 half marathons and 24 full marathons.

  1. Dahlen's stats 2019-20 Timra IK Swe-1 51 36 41 77 42 29 2020-21 Timra IK Swe-1 45 25 46 71 10 30 77 pts in 51 71 pts in 45 He kind of ripped it up in Sweden. This is Linus Karlsson, the guy we traded Dahlen for. 2019-20 Bofors IK
  2. No one really knows the order of BPAs. Every list is different, especially this year with no real clear Top 3 or Top 10. Some GMs ahead of VAN will make some odd choices I think, which will leave VAN with a great player. Even though Edvinsson had a tough U18, I can still see him going in the Top 10. McTavish will go high, maybe Wallstedt. Shoot, maybe Johnson is taken in the Top 3, and Lysell is taken before VAN's turn. It's going to be wild.
  3. A trade involving DiPietro would mean they're going after Wallstedt?
  4. It's all good, some of these players are hyped right before the Draft because of a few good games in the U18. McTavish, for example, wasn't near the Top 10 before, but now he could go Top 3 lol And reverse - Lucius and Lambos were in the Top 10 at one point too, but dropped down. They're still very good players! Edvinsson was also in the Top 5 conversation, but a mediocre U18 and he's dropped out of the Top 10. Do we rely a little too heavily on the U18 and World Championship? (rather than the entire body of work)
  5. Will Guenther be better than Boeser? If not, then pass
  6. Jim likes 9 players with the 1st. He's not trading it. 9 BPA Power Beniers Clarke Wallstedt Eklund Hughes McTavish Guenther Lambos I have doubts that Johnson will become a (consistently) very good NHL player.,. Lambos is the sleeper.
  7. I really didn't think Wallstedt would be considered, but maybe he's one of Benning's Top 9? I just figured since VAN has Demko, and DiPietro and Silovs are developing, they would be set up for years, but those two might not ever become regular NHL players, let alone good enough top become starters. Wallstedt would ensure their goaltending is secure for many years. Teams won't do squat in the playoffs without great goaltending. If not Wallstedt, could they get Cossa with the 2nd?
  8. Say Benning does take Wallstedt. Demko is 25, and assuming it takes Wallstedt 3-4 years to make the NHL (backup) - Demko will still be under 30 and in his prime. A Demko / Wallstedt duo could be the goaltending tandem when the Canucks are ready to make that run. A few years of those two, giving them a chance to win every night. Then after they win a Cup, they trade one for a King's ransom. (I find my opinion changes constantly on who I want lol lots of good choices)
  9. I keep forgetting Demko was a 2nd rounder (#36). Imagine the amazing goaltending duo of Demko / Wallstedt under Coach Clark for years to come. Damn our lousy defense EDIT - I just realized that Wallstedt would eventually like to be a starter, and so one of them would probably be traded down the road. Either one though, would fetch a hefty return, I'm sure.
  10. Has to be a good mix, and D has to be able to skate. Edler is declining faster than he skates. If he's re-signed, I hope it's cheap and he's used as a #6-7. Hughes Rathbone Juolevi all smart, and very good/great skaters IMO Hamonic is important too, even though he's not the fastest. He's a good partner for Hughes and tough, so I hope they re-sign him. They could use another 1-2 D like him. Myers is pretty good, but his size gets a lot of calls against him. He needs to be smarter with positioning and use his slap shot more. Maybe Brad Sh
  11. Missing a big slap shot from the point. Sami Salo style.
  12. I agree, Canucks could still somehow end up with Hughes or Clarke at #9. A bit of a longshot, but teams ahead of VAN have their own plans. Worst case, I think, is that VAN ends up with Edvinsson, McTavish or Guenther. Not too shabby.
  13. Myers Hamonic (IF they re-sign him) Woo hmm, not a whole lot in the big and nasty department
  14. Had a horrible thought. Could Treliving end up signing Tryamkin? Sounds like such a Treliving thing to do.
