Pete M Posted June 27, 2015 Share Posted June 27, 2015 JB definitely has not made a splash yet in the draft... Canucks need two good defencemen in order to compete with the other Western teams; but who does he give up to get that someone? Let's face it...to get a high draft pick, JB has to trade someone with upside and value (for example, Kesler deal included a 1st and 3rd round pick). To think that JB can off load veterans who are on the down slide and with big contracts for picks, I say is not too realistic thinking.. We may have to endure another season of Bieksa, and Weber, and Sbisa's inconsistency, if nothing is done to the D core. If Miller can't play better than he did last year, then that albatross around the neck will only get heavier for JB. Are there players in Utica that are NHL ready that can out perform Bieksa and Weber? Even Hamhuis is starting to lose a step as the years go bye. Is Sanguinetti that guy who will be given a chance or will the veterans still rule in 2015/16 If he gives up Kassian for picks, then the Canucks will have lost Matthais and Kassian. I believe Matthais has upside and will get better...JB is making a mistake if he lets Matthais walk. If he lets Matthais walk, then Matthais needs to be replaced with someone better; Is Grenier better than Matthais...time will tell. Who does JB have to give to get better?
