Canucks Rookie (8/16)



  1. Pettersson's shot is 2 or 3 rungs below Matthews
  2. The bar for most cdc-ers unfortunately is quite low. Petey is "elite" but hes never cracked 90-100 pts. Brock is an "elite" goal scorer and yet, hes never come close to 40 goals which imo is the bare minimum for great, let alone elite. They are really good players but i consider elite no hesitation, top 5. Lets be generous even and say top 10 unfortunately none of are players are except maybe Hughes
  3. Yup, i remember listening to the draft, everybody got caught off guard with Dubois going #3, and when the oilers picked puuljarvi, i was excited that for SURE we were landing Matt Tkatchuk. When they announced "canucks pick from the London Knights, Olli Juolevi" man was I pissed. Tkatchuk was pretty consistent the 3rd best player in the class pretty much all year, some even had him at #2 and we passed him up
  4. I was really rooting for Lockwood as well, even more than Gadj. IMO Locks did enough to be on the roster, Im not sure why Zack McPylon is still there. Oh well, it will give the Abby fans a marquee player to cheer for when the season starts. Lockwood is gonna have a big season, not just stats wise but overall development
  5. Kids got a lot of confidence ripping one timers that far. I like it. Locks is just launching bombs out there
  6. Too bad our GM is an idiot. He doesn't like keeping assets and getting free ones
  7. I suspect this thread will be closed soon
  8. Highmore looked ok tonight, but if he did hit waivers, wouldn't be too upset if it meant some of the younger guys coming in MacEwen is garbage
  9. Just setup my pickem pool. Lions are gonna be chomping on the Bears kneecaps tomorrow for their 1st win
  10. I agree, Clague even just looking at his upside is worth taking a risk
  11. Thats what I was thinking too because it sure looks like a cash grab if hes willing not to opt out AND hes unvaccinated. If he opted out even though hes vaxxed, understandable, his daughter comes first. The optics of it just doesn't look good considering he took a contract, putting his team at risk being unvaccinated (seems to me this is the consensus), and not opting out to at least give us a chance to replace him
  12. Going to be a curtain call for Dipietro. He's gonna be with the big club next season
  13. Even if its just strictly asset management, McEwen would easily go unclaimed. Ive seen enough to McEwen and he doesn't offer much. For a guy thats supposedly "physical" he hardly hits anybody. Would rather see Gadjovich or Lockwood. McEwen is a just a warm body to put in a lineup while at the very least Lockwood can be developed into PKer. Lockwoods speed is whats gonna hopefully get him in the roster
  14. I sure hope so, and even Lockwood. McEwen is awful. Put his carcass on waivers
