  1. I agree. He’s still great at faceoffs and the PK. Unfortunately I think one of the Alberta teams will sign him for more than we’re willing to pay him.
  2. Laurent Broissoit is a local kid who always seem to play well against the Canucks. He’s a UFA who I believe played for 1.5 mill. last season in Winnipeg.
  3. Not sure how that could be done. They would have to go without a draft for one season to wait for all the eligible players to turn nineteen. And that missing year would no doubt be the year the Canucks were to draft first overall.
  4. I don’t think it will happen until later this week when UFAs start being signed. Hopefully we’ll recoup some picks for the 2022 draft.
  5. I’m still hoping that JB can work out a deal with Chicago for Zadorov. Although he shoots left he is comfortable playing the right side. An even up deal for Schmidt would give us the size we need and some cap room. Plus he’d be a Russian comrade for Podkolzin.
  6. All draft experts in hindsight get some right and some wrong. Bob McKenzie had Pettersson ranked only one spot higher than Button at number seven and had even Casey Mittelstadt ranked above him. I’ve been a believer in Button since the 2014 draft, not only with his Virtanen ranking but his take on Brayden Point as well. He had Point rated as a mid first rounder while McKenzie and most others did not have him worthy of a first round selection. Put me in the Svechkov camp if McTavish or the top four D aren’t available.
  7. Yeah I just looked it up and he’s committed to the KHL through the 22-23 season. That makes me think MacTavish may be the better pick if available because he may be NHL ready by the start of 2022.
  8. I gotta admit I’m now firmly in the Svechkov camp as well for our first round pick if none of the big four defencemen are available. It was already known at the time Podkolzin was drafted that he had committed to the KHL for two years but I haven’t heard anything about Svechkov preferring to go that route.
  9. Not crazy at all. Sutter is just as good defensively and is capable of chipping in some goals. Beagle will score three goals in a good year.
  10. I believe JB was quoted as saying he would like another Russian on the team and not necessarily on Podkolzin’s line. If so then Nikita Zadorov is a guy I would like him to target in a trade with Chicago. A huge mobile defenceman who loves to hit and is great on the PK. I wonder if the Blackhawks would take Schmidt for him even-up?
  11. There are plenty of dependable backups available this year that could be signed as a replacement for Holtby. Laurent Broissoit is one example.
  12. Unless we’re lucky enough to lose Holtby in the expansion draft. That would give us $4.3 million to play with next season.
  13. Almost correct. It’s JIM Wiste.
