  1. The difference between his offensive outputs the last two seasons is confusing
  2. I think another cool thing we could do is run two different power play structures and make it more difficult for teams to plan against us. Miller Boeser Petey Hughes OEL Podkolzin Garland Horvat Hoglander Rathbone Pearson can sub in for Podkolzin if he has a difficult time translating his game right away. I would keep Myers away from the power play to better manage his minutes.
  3. Quite a few of those players won't be back by the time everything is set and done. How I see the roster currently: Miller Petey Boeser Hoglander Horvat Garland Pearson Dickinson Podkolzin Motte - 4C - Lockwood Highmore Macewen Hughes - 1RD OEL - 2RD Juolevi/Rathbone - Myers Juolevi/Rathbone Demko Backup G Some more work left to be done via trades and free agency.
  4. Canucks 7 forwards are likely Pettersson, Boeser, Horvat, Miller, Pearson, Dickinson and Motte. Lind, Highmore and Gadjovich will likely all be exposed.
  5. Canucks will be protecting 7-3-1. You cannot switch Myers out for Lind.
  6. If it's not concrete, he doesn't report it that way. Likely what he's hearing from his sources.
  7. It is still a one year plan. Signing Quinn and Petey long-term would likely add 3+ mill to each cap hit, which would close to cancel most of the added cap space and only give room for a middle type player contract. That doesn't seem like an efficient use of dumping a top ten pick. We can do the same thing in the UFA market next season without sacrificing what could be a key piece to put us over the top in a couple of seasons on an ELC. As long as Petey and Quinn are still RFAs after the bridge contract, we're completely fine.
  8. In what world would a top 10 pick with a chance at an elite player be worth a 1 year salary dump.. Not at all.
  9. This is the key imo. Even if it's a small improvement, there will be some sort of expected positive progress that will help him become an everyday NHLer. And for the best case scenario, he has a Horvat like improvement and increases his chances for being an impact player.
  10. I'd do the pairings like: Hughes Hamonic Rathbone Larsson Juolevi Myers Imo: - Hughes will bounce back to his rookie year effectiveness, where he made a bottom pair Schenn play above his weight, thus not necessary to put the best shutdown D we have with him. - Putting Larsson (who I consider to be better than Hamonic defensively atm) with Rathbone ensures the rookie has a solid partner to cover up for his rookie mistakes. - Juolevi and Myers seems like a good pair to me. Juolevi's defensive awareness gave Myers the opportunity to jump up into th
  11. Awesome analysis, thanks for being so thorough! Hopefully he can become at least a solid bottom 6 forward.
  12. How's the defensive side of McDonough's game?
