  1. Was hoping for him too but after 5 drafts, I’ve learned to go with the flow and just trust Benning and his staff. Virtnane Juolevi Boeser Pettersson Hughes Gaudette Madden Palmu Demko Podkolzin Woo Rathbone
  2. Lol wtf does chip know? Steal of the draft. Been on my list since day one and said if he was available at 10 it would be a huge mistake if we passed up on him. Complete game, elite shot, high compete level, great hands, not afraid to get physical, and I’ll bet he brings Trymakin with him. Stoked!!!! Steal of the draft the last 3 years! JB your a gem
  3. What? He’s rates as being the 5th most skilled guy in this entire draft!!
  4. Yesssssssss!!!!! We got our Ovechkin
  5. Woahhhhhh wtf! Smokescreen to the max
  6. Easy pick for LA. Still leaves Zegras on the board
  7. Barrie is getting traded! Book it!!!!
  8. If Stecher is included then it has to be Virtanen, Stetch, and 2020 2nd round pick (turns into 1st in 2020 if we make the playoffs)
  9. Finally draft day is here Podk, Krebs, Boldy for me. Would love Dach or Turcotte but likely wont be there for us at 10. Lets see some trades, some additional draft picks, lets say our goodbyes to some of our Canucks and welcome the future. Hoping for an additional 1st, an additional 2nd, Krebs, Barrie, Connoly and Johansson this off-season.
  10. I agree he may not be the same as the guys you mentioned above but hes still a 60 point defenseman that can actually play defense. Hes the perfect mentor for Hughes as well. But my biggest point is we do not have the assets to get those ELITE defenseman. Boeser 1 for 1 would not return those elite guys. We are too far in the rebuild to have reasonable expectations of drafting one of those guys ourselves as I now see Vancouver as a playoff bubble team.
  11. I don't think he wants a great player. I think hes going for the best player in that tier and that's likely Turcotte (my pick) or Zegras
  12. G, my dude. You seem like good people but you gotta open your mind. Just because we don't have the assets now, doesn't mean we cant get them. Just because were going after a smaller defenseman, doesn't change the direction or makeup of the team that JB wants to achieve. Read his comments on the St. Louis Blues. My dude, just think about it. Take your time. Big things are coming, big things. Hopefully this small thing in Barrie first, but then definitely BIG BIG THINGS regards, SP.
  13. I'd like to address a few concerns on the board Barrie is old - no one wins the cup with a team made up of young guys - just ask Edmonton - (Pietroangelo won his cup in his 11th season) Too much to give up - you don't get 60 point defenseman, especially RHD for throw in's like Sutter, Baertschi, etc. You have to give to get. We wont have a 1st rounder next year - other players on this roster can be traded to recoup a 1st rounder. Tanev, Stetcher, players we may sign as UFA's Barrie is too small - Yes he is, hes also a 60 point defenseman that can push the puck and control the pace of the game and his defensive skills are much better than Risto, Myers, and Gardiner so he'll definitely help us in the 30 or so one-goal games we lost last year We can get Risto - no you cant. Risto would command a Horvat minimum and even if they don't, we don't have the assets to acquire him. Buff is in same position as us I would rather have X - we likely don't have the assets for whatever player you're thinking about Virtanen Neely blah blah - Huge fan of Virtanen but his game wont translate here in Vancouver. If he does become Neely elsewhere doesn't mean he would have here. Different system, different coaches, teammates, playing style etc. Personal opinion he tops out as a Raffi Torres 25/25 guy We need to continue to build through the draft - yes we do, JB has shown he can still pick out talent in later rounds. Draft picks are valuable and can be used to improve the team. We can draft in the top 10 for the next 4 years and turn into the Oilers or start moving those picks for established star players in the league that will help us compete and give the young guys a taste of the playoffs. We're still rebuilding - no we are not, as of this year our rebuild is over. Rebuilds don't consist of drafting 30 players over 10-12 years before you begin to compete. The holes we have in our top 6 and defense will hopefully be addressed this year through our 1st and 2nd round picks and additional assets we may acquire through free agency and trade. 2 top 6 wingers, 1-2 top 4 defenseman But we're a lottery team for another few years - we don't look like a lottery team. These are all players that are trending up or have already established themselves. Add a few free agents and you've put together an admirable team. Pettersson Boeser Horvat Hughes Barrie Edler Tanev Markstrom Demko Woo Juolevi Gaudette Madden 10th OA 40th OA People need to stop stressing so much. We get smaller now but we can get bigger through other moves, we lost a draft pick now but we can recoup a 1st later, etc, etc, etc, etc.
  14. Older? yes More expesnive? more than likely more physical? oh absolutely offensive talent? 25-30 goal scorer on Pettersson's wing btw I am not a fan of Ferland and love Virtanen but Barrie for JV and 2020 1st is not a deal I can pass up. Im confident we get him signed to a long term deal as soon as the trade is announced. He is a local kid and may love the idea of playing for his hometown team.
  15. Most of them are morons. They are expecting more value than Karlsson and Trouba for an inferior player with the same contract status (pending UFA). The 2020 pick is likely in the 15 to 20 range and I put Virtanen slightly ahead of Pionk as a player. Trouba is the better player, so why would we give up more for Barrie?
  16. You add Jett Woo, Olli Juolevi, and Nikita Trymakin to the defense core You add Lucic to the 4th line along with MacEwan - well maybe not this part but the top part for sure
  17. Goldobins cap is minimal. We essentially send no salary back. Pick up 4 years of an underperforming player at 6m cap. The 8th would be the minimum I’m asking for if Im helping them clear 6 m leave my bong out of this
  18. Have you? Good for you! You’re one of the specia ones aren’t you!?
  19. Mutual termination a possibility here? Would allow him to sign anywhere he would like. Maybe Dallas signs him to a 1 year $3-4mill show me contract. Obviously this happens after his bonus is paid out. He's really only leaving 9 million on the table with a mutual termination. If he can recoup 3-4 million elsewhere, its less of a hit. He gets to play where he wants, and MOST IMPORTANTLY we get rid of the contract and can make something happen Goldobin for Lucic and 8thOA 10thOA, Tanev for Barrie and 16thOA Rathbone for Clarkson and 17thOA --> flip 17thOA with additional piece to move up as high as possible within the top 15 Draft - Krebs, Seider, Nehwook Place Clarkson on LTIR after the beginning of the season We can still move Sutter to Anaheim or Florida who I've heard have interest with retention to increase our return We can move Baertschi, Granlund, Spooner, Schaller to whoever will take them or bury them in the minors to clear up the space for Lucic. (Baertschi and Spooner would do it) Sign Brett Connoly as a UFA Sign March Johansson as UFA Sign Anton Stralman as UFA Johansson Pettersson Boeser Pearson Horvat Virtanen Connoly Gaudette Lucic Roussel Beagle Motte Edler Stralman Hughes Barrie Juolevi Stetcher
  20. I amended the trade on another thread It likely is Hutton, Sutter (50%), 2nd in 2020 (1st if Barrie resigns) and a prospect like Rathbone or Lind.
  21. Well last year he went for a 2nd,4th,5th to Fla and returned even less when he went to SJ. Van Barrie Col Hoffman Fla 2nd in 2020 (Van) 4th in 2019 (Van) Sutter (50%) Prospect (Van) Prospect (Col)
