Canucks Second-Line

Canucks Second-Line (11/16)



  1. I do think we got lucky in the sense that Arizona seemed to want to part ways with a lot of future money to OEL. Also with OEL having a NTC only wanted to go to Boston or Vancouver. Who knows if Boston was even offering anything. Irregardless to also pull in a player like Garland into the deal and extend him to 4.9 million a year it’s a very good deal for Benning.
  2. For me if the 4th line, playing around 8 minutes a game, and being in the press box was how they thought they’d bring Podkolzin around I’d have just sent him down right away and kept Gadjovich on the team. Play Podz 18-20 minutes a game in the AHL and have Gadjovich for the 4th line every other night. Feel like that would be better for Podz development.
  3. He knew he would be going to the AHL and decided he’d rather play in Sweden than the AHL.
  4. I was a fan of him in the draft and when we traded for him I was stoked. Sad we traded him away but we had to because he had no patience. Being in Timra with Pettersson and Petterssons early success lead him into feeling he deserved something he didn’t. When he didn’t get a roster spot he wanted out and Benning needed to trade him. Still wish this never happened though because I still am a fan of this kid and believe he has the abilities to be a top 6 winger in the NHL.
  5. I think he’s claimed before Tampa gets the chance.
  6. A year ago his value was still low. Maybe a late 2nd round pick in return at best. At that point is it really worth it to give up on a guy early. I’d rather hand walk him out of the league than give him away for pennies and watch him turn into a useful player. Some people on here wrote off a guy like Puljujarvi who is looking pretty good for the Oilers now.
  7. The one year it looks like Olli could make our bottom 6 and get some decent minutes he’s shipped out. This trade feels like it was probably 2-3 months too early. Should have given the kid a chance to really sink or swim.
  8. This guy has more offensive potential for that 3C. Definitely put in a claim and try him out.
  9. Like seeing Podz scheduled for the top line. Chiasson is fine but he’s a 4th line type guy. Give the kid with skill a chance to play with other skilled players.
  10. Somebody get this kid on PK training
  11. 8.2 mill on the cap? For somebody who seems like a complementary top 6 winger. Ottawa is desperate to keep their youth but this is too much for Tkachuk. Better hope he takes another step and isn’t just a 50 point guy.
  12. This guy was in and out of Detroit’s defence last year. I don’t know if he’s an upgrade on anybody we have.
  13. Our bottom 6 got a lot smaller. Can’t believe we waived and lost Jonah and Mac lol.
  14. Seemed like the guy with the most upside on the waiver wire. Was hoping we’d get him and try him as the 3C.
