  1. Just curious, which wingers would you like to see the Canucks target? As far as guys that might still be on the board, Guenther, Sillinger and Lysell really jump out for me.
  2. Hahaha not to hijack your post, but this is exactly what I did too! So relieved about Clark! Everything else is just icing on the cake.
  3. I agree. Recency bias is truly a powerful factor in decision making. These two write ups about him from http://www.mynhldraft.com/2021-nhl-draft/player-profiles/Dylan-Guenther really make me believe that he’s a far more well rounded player than just the goal scorer that myself and some others have been pegging him as: Dylan Guenther's Player Profile Steve Kournianos - The Draft Analyst - May 24th: "He may look wiry, but this dual-threat from the flank is an excellent penalty killer who also plays with snarl."Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - May 12th: "Thinks the game at a high level and is
  4. That’s a good idea. I honestly hadn’t thought of that. I think if Buffalo picks Power then there is a reasonable chance that SEA goes with Wallstedt. But if Buffalo goes with anyone else, then I imagine SEA will take Power. I really hope that Wallstedt does go anywhere before our pick because that will mean that Benning and co will have their choice between two of the players in which seems to be shaking out to be the top nine this year: Power Beniers Edvinsson Clarke Eklund Hughes Guenther McTavish Johnson Of course a few of
  5. I say “fall into our lap” because I feel that he’s the exact type of player that we need. Then again so too is Brandt Clarke but I’m not holding out hope that we land him. in regards to those rankings on elite prospects, the majority of the rankings that have him lower are older rankings, such as Dobber which was from March, and Nuetral Zone which was from December, and SMAHT Scouting which were “Winter Rankings.” McTavish did a lot to raise his stock over the course of the year.
  6. I really hope that this mock draft is right because it would mean that McTavish falls in our lap! https://www.sportsnet.ca/nhl/article/nhl-top-15-mock-draft-sabres-position-take-owen-power-first-overall/ It’s interesting that they didn’t have Wallstedt anywhere in the top 15.
  7. Based on stats alone, Power really looks to have come to life in the world hockey championship the last two games. He’s logging a ton of minutes (2nd most minutes a few games ago, and by far the most mins in today’s game) and he’s putting up points too. The best part is that this all against men.
  8. Beautiful goal by Beniers at the world hockey championships today. https://www.iihf.com/en/events/2021/wm/gamecenter/video/24373/30-usa-vs-lat
  9. It’s very interesting that you don’t have Power in there. I must say though that based on stats alone (as I haven’t been watching the tourney) he seems to be struggling at the world championship right now. Another -2 today. Then again the whole Canadian team seems to be struggling. Eklund has been making his way up in my list. He and Clarke are the two players I think I would like to see the Nucks target if we win one of the lottery picks.
  10. I wonder if Eichel possibly being on his way out this year encourages the Sabres to draft Benieres?
  11. I’m a little indifferent to this news. What’s truly important to me is that the Canucks lock up Ian Clark to a long term contract stat.
  12. This my personal list, in order, of the players that I’d love to see the Canucks pick: Brandt Clarke, RHD Matthew Beniers, C/W Owen Power, LHD Luke Hughes, LHD William Eklund, C/W Kent Johnson, C Simon Edvinsson, LHD Dylan Guenther, C/W Mason McTavish, C Fabian Lysell, RW Chaz Lucius, C Cole Sillinger, LW Corson Ceulemans, RHD It’s going to be very interesting to see where the goalie, Jesper Wallstedt is picked. That could bump a very good player down to us!
  13. Crazier things have happened. Even having Quinn Hughes fall to us at 7 was pretty miraculous. Also this site has Clarke going 8th: http://www.mynhldraft.com/NHL-Mock-Draft/ I’d be entirely shocked if Clarke fell out of the top 5 though. I might get flamed for this, but the one of the big four D men that I could see possibly falling a touch is actually Hughes. Then again he could just as easily go second overall though. It’s such a wonky draft this year lol
  14. This right here. We’re going to have some high quality players to choose from. I would’ve loved one of the big four D men but I’m not getting my hopes up for that anymore. It could still happen though. My gut is telling me that McTavish will be the guy this year, and that would be pretty awesome. Unless Eklund happens to fall, in which case I can’t see the Nucks passing on a Swede of that caliber.
