Canucks Regular

Canucks Regular (9/16)



  1. I would like to see that rule modified so that 1st & 2nd rounder draft picks were allowed to play in the AHL if the team that drafted them feel that is appropriate for their continued development.
  2. That shot of his is a bomb and he seems to have good instincts of where to be in the O zone. Looks like he could use a bit of work in the D zone but nothing that the AHL experience can't improve.
  3. Danila Klimovich gets his first professional goal in North America!
  4. Hey! This is Canucks CDC; you should know better than that by now Lol.
  5. I'm well aware of that but I do think his ceiling is much higher than that of a 4th liner and I also get the earning your minutes philosophy but I think Pod's development may be slowed by not getting enough minutes and reps. I am hoping that he shows enough to earn more minutes and all of this discussion becomes a mute point. Time will tell I guess.
  6. That is what I was getting at. Let's see how he is deployed over the next 5 games minimum before re-assessing where he is at in the grand scheme of things.
  7. If they only play him 7 or less minutes / game or healthy scratch him; IMO it would be better for his long term development to get a few games under his belt in Abby where he can hone his skills and come back to the big club as a dominant player that forces the likes of Dowling etc to the sidelines.
  8. I don't see that as much of an issue at all. The organization has 5 goalies between the two teams. If either Halak or Dem's get an injury that has one of them out for a few games, Dipietro would be the call up and Silovs and Martins become the tandem in Abby. The logistics for most of the games would be a short trip up or down the highway as the case may be. Similar situation applies in Abby if one of their goalies gets injured.
  9. I'm thinking that they will closely watch him over the next few games and make a decision on whether he is progressing enough to warrant staying on the big club or better served playing big minutes in Abby and refining his game there. In all fairness; this kid should be playing more than 7 minutes a game. If Green does not up his ice time over the road trip then maybe Abby for a short duration might be an option.
  10. Those fans that are blue collar workers would have used a different word for goofball but we can't say that on here.
  11. If he is able to anchor the 4th line center spot that would be a win IMO as there is no timetable for the return of Sutter. Noah Juulsen may or may not turn out as an NHL'er but could be a very effective minor leaguer.
  12. Come on DeNiro your better than that, If you take into account Boesser, Sutter, Motte and Hamonic not playing and Juolevi being traded you are realistically down to just one that might have been pegged for the AHL.
  13. I doubt he will be on the top line as a regular but can be used there if the situation calls for it.
  14. He would at least be a net front presence while and assuming that Brock is out. The Canucks have a lack of players that do that effectively. Both Petey and J.T. should have increased scoring success if Chiasson is taking away the goalies view.
