KariyaSakicAnderson Posted June 18, 2015 Share Posted June 18, 2015 Not a proposal just for fun to see what CDC would do and to pass the doldrums of the next few days until the trades start to go down. On draft day Philadelphia comes calling and say that they will trade their 7oa pick for Jake Virtanen, would you make the trade? who would you choose and why? the usually top 5 are gone and NJ took Barzal. I would, though it'd be a tough call between Rantanen(rw), Provorov(d) or Zacha(c/lw) -to me Zacha is a similar player to Virtanen, both have great shots, use their size and are physical, Virtanen has the edge in speed but Zacha has the edge in decision making and is a bit better playmaker -Provorov could be the top pairing high scoring defenceman the Canucks have badly needed. -Rantanen is intriguing, he's not as fast and for a big guy not yet as physical as Jake but he does have a higher Hockey IQ/sense, a better playmaker does have a great shot but not as heavy a shot as Jake or Zacha For me it's a toss up between Zacha and Rantanen, as good as Provorov is you can still get a good defenceman at 23 but not as good as a forward.
