  1. A couple names to look at: Adam Wilsby Alex Young Linus Andersson Danila Galenyuk
  2. Canucks first pick will be #82 barring any trades between now and the draft. Looking at pick value for 82 and 113 specifically the Canucks trading back 6-7 spots would be ideal. For 82 having them move back 6-7 spots would lose them 0.2 value on the 82 pick, but acquiring an additional pick in the late 4th would add 0.9 value. Net +0.7 which is equal to a 6th rounder of improvement to their total draft value. Interestingly moving 113 for a pick as low as 126 plus any other pick above 162 results in a net gain of +0.8 improvement to their total draft value. In other words. trading back in later rounds has an increased benefit to total draft value, and the Canucks should be looking to exploit this. Moving back with their 4th, 5th, and 6th round picks could net them a draft value gain of around +2.0. That is about the same as adding a free additional 3rd round pick. Hopefully with not many picks this year JB will look to create quality by increasing quantity. Adding a free 3rd rounder by moving back 3 times would be a savvy move, and one that could be quite helpful with the flat cap, especially if they look to take undervalued overage prospects who may have the ability to play pro right away. Article for reference.
  3. I like the idea of picking London players a bit later if they show skill, but are playing further down the lineup.
  4. I was wrong and I don't care. Great win by the guys tonight and Fanta played well!!
  5. I actually think the opposite. I think Green and Benning know that they need Olli to be a part of this core, and getting him playoff experience is going to be huge. Benn and Fanta are spare parts, but they believe in Olli, and want him to grow with this group in this experience. I say he gets a look in game 1, and if he does well, then they might just keep him in.
  6. Really would love to see Podkolzin in the playoffs. He's going to be such a nice add to our bottom 6 group to end next season.
  7. In case people are interested in draft rankings for Olli
  8. Excited for Olli to get some positive reinforcement from the organization for the work he has put in on improving.
  9. So I did a tally of the games with over 6 mins of ice time. There were 23 including playoffs. All his 10 points came in games with over 6 mins of ice. 0.44 P/GP 2.22 P/60 1.48 S/GP Averaging about 15 shifts per game in those 23 contests Averaged 11:15 of ice time over those 23 games.
  10. He was 2.09 P/60 in his 32 KHL games this year. So if he played 16 mins a night and scored at the same rate: That would be 18 points in 32 games. That equates to .56 P/GP u19 Tarasenko was .57 P/GP Panarin was .45 P/GP
  11. This guy is a sleeper right now. I think he could take a big step next year.
  12. Podkolzin is 10th all time in combined regular season and playoff P/GP by u19 in a single season now. Pretty amazing considering his first point didn't come until January.
  13. He's going to be a good player in my opinion. His skating gets him out of trouble right now though, I've seen highlights of him chasing behind the net leaving the slot open. He just needs to simplify defensively and stick to a system where he can use his skills to win his battles, and transition from there. The tendency is to try and do it all because for a long time he probably has been able to do that. He could be a 40 point dman in the NHL. 1 more year in college probably makes the most sense.
  14. Quinn Hughes is a fan of Jack Rathbone. Nough said.
  15. He could play. Whether or not he is ready is another question. Personally I think he should get games this year with Utica or the big team.
