  1. No one complaining about Pettersson now :lol:

      And the thing about this is if we took Glass over the highly skilled Swede people would be saying we passed on Nylander 2.0

    3. JM_


      someone on CDC is :lol:

  2. Loving Boeser and Juloevi together.

    2. Nuxfanabroad


      The Baseball Furies for our 4th line?

  3. Thoughts on Juolevi joining Pettersson in the SHL? Build chemistry together and play in a men's league; better than the OHL for sure.

      Where's Wellwood



      People though Virtanen had nothing to prove in the OHL either but maybe it would have been better for him to play another year. For his offensive confidence and with knowledge of what to work on on an OHL playing schedule if nothing else.

      @Where's Wellwood Virtanen played in the WHL

    4. Where's Wellwood
  4. Juolevi, Lockwood, Pettersson, DiPietro, Gadjovich all potentially playing in the WJC this year. Love it! 

    1. Jaku


      It'll be nice seeing some Canucks prospects at the WJC. Hopefully all of them make their respective team.

    2. VanGnome


      Kole Lind should be there too

    3. NHL'er


      @VanGnome He wasn't invited to the Showcase so wasn't sure but if he gets off to a hot start next season he may well be! 

  5. If he is still available at 33, would you use that pick on Jake Oettinger?

      i read that quickly and thought you said you want haggis. i've tried it.

      @smithers joe I actually rather enjoyed it.  Would definitely eat it again but I'm not going to go out searching for it.

      i know, it is just the thought that it's all wrapped up in a sheep's gut. 

  6. Would picking up Seabrook's bad contract get you Hartman?

      Uh, I'd want a lot more than Hartman. That's not an ordinary cap-dump, it's a long-term anchor. One decent player isn't enough to eat it.

    3. Pears


      It's unlikely they trade their 1st because they're hosting the draft but we could probably get one of their kids for sure. 

    4. Salmonberries


      Nope, not enough payment to take that on.


      Interestingly Hartman was the guy I wanted where we took Shinkaruk.

  7. All I want for Christmas (the draft) is to get both Glass and Foote ^_^

    1. Ghostsof1915


      Rasmussen and Foote. 

  8. Please please please can we find a way to get Cal Foote in addition to our top 5 pick? Juolevi-Foote top pairing = :wub:

    1. diesel_3


      I have heard nothing but amazing things about his leadership qualities, Every scouting report on him talks about his 2 way game and ability to quickly make reads in his own zone. What would that be like to have somebody without the name Tanev be able to do that for the Canucks?

    2. Roger Neilsons Towel
  9. Would you trade Tanev and Tryamkin for Drouin?

      Tanev + Granlund maybe

    4. Phil_314


      More like straight-up or no dice.  

      Stevie Y will be in a bind financially, needing to re-sign him, Palat and Johnson (all R.F.A.'s) and media are already reporting that either Johnson or Drouin would be dangled as trade bait if things get tight money-wise (they can move Johnson with Brayden Point's emergence).  If they want to patch up that right-side defense they better be willing to offer Drouin straight-up for Tanev.  No to adding Tree.

  10. "like if you Youtube him [Jonathan Dahlen]" - Jim Benning; what a beauty Jim :P

  11. Canucks first winning streak of more than two games since the start of the season! Happy New Years Y'all! 

  12. Would people be happy or disappointed if Juolevi turned out to be a replica of Olli Maata?

      @logic Hutton scored 25 in 3 fewer games. Hutton's also on pace for another 25-30 point season. Maata this year is on pace for 10 points this season.

    3. Phil_314


      Yeah, slightly bummed as well.  Of course an offensive-type D-man is great but when he's not producing that's not that valuable.  Plus, he was projected more to be a big-minute all-rounder in the mold of OEL, Lindholm, or (dare I say it) Lidstrom, so yeah.  Getting an Ehrhoff would be underwhelming.

    4. abbyroadkill


      yes. bummed...need him to become a Lidtsrom!!!/Selanne ....cuz he is Finnish, right?

  13. Hurricane Matthew(s) has hit 

  14. If Matthews doesn't score a hat trick each game then he's a bust.  

  15. JB likes his meat and potatoes. Me? I'm more of a crème brûlée kind of guy. 

    1. Jam126


      I'm more of a Peat and Motateos kind of guy. ;)

    2. Qwags


      I'm more of a caffeinated bacon kind of guy.

    3. NHL'er


      @Qwags so a high risk of cardiac arrest kind of guy? :shock:

  16. Gudbranson's NHL 16 rating is 84 with elite potential. Good enough for me :rolleyes:

  17. PL Dubois or Tkachuk? No complaints! 

  18. Benning: "A couple nights ago 'spun the wheel' [used the NHL lottery simulator website] for 2 hours and it seemed like we picked once in the top 3 over 2 hours so I was kinda put off by the whole process. So the next day I did it 10 times and we picked 3 times out of 10 so that gave me more hope." :lol::lol:

    1. Brad Marchand

      Brad Marchand

      Glad to hear I'm not the only one wasting my life on this.

    2. HC20.0


      I think it's rigged. First time I tried it, Boston won. Second time, Boston got the 2nd overall.

  19. Brock Boeser ma boi!

  20. The real reason we traded for Granlund? Clearly to help Laine or Puljujärvi adjust to life in Vancouver. :rolleyes:

    1. Green Building

      Green Building

      I don't see a problem with that, unless we draft Matthews. So basically we should trade down if we win the lottery?

    2. Odd.
  21. My name is Robin Lehner:


    1. thejazz97


      No this is Patrick

  22. Dear Benning, please keep our vets. That way we can lose more games and get Matthews. 

    1. RRypien37


      Or you know...trade the Vets for more picks....and play raw rookies/prospects from the farm and lose just as many games while developing players for future years. 


  23. Seeking solace in the Utica Comet's thread
