Yes. I agree 100 percent. IN A NON CAPITAL KIND OF WAY THOUGH. LoL.

LOL LOL Yes just get tired of reading all these people wondering if he would sign..lol..lol

 

Adam and his family and Canucks had there plan in place back in January.... Now its marketing and announcing it tomorrow keeping suspense very high..

 

Great marketing and selling seats... I am excited also he will be a 33 - 40 point guy next year...

 

Know everyone is wondering about expansion..lol..lol Great problems to have...

 

We will lose one player and lets not make mistakes and give draft picks away like so many teams did with Vegas...

Give to players away so they would not take a certain players.. Just prepare list and make trade in advance...

 

good problems to have, we will have lots of very good prospect and will lose a good player... Thats okay we will be fine..

Top 10 team in 3 years....

Linden will bike his way there ;)

Trevor Linden could use Artem Chubarov's car which he left at the player's underground parking spot at the arena when he departed from Vancouver. I'm sure the car is still there. :lol:

An ELC is merely the first SPC most players sign. The CBA section on ELCs refers to entry level deals as SPCs. Basically, an ELC is a type of SPC, if that makes sense.

 

So when the expansion terms refer to an age 20 or older player under an SPC, such as Gaudette, they are referring to his ELC.

 

Therefore, his first professional year will be the first year he plays 10 or more games while under the terms of his ELC.

 

If he signs a deal this week, which looks like what’s going to happen, there are not enough games remaining in the NHL season for him to reach 10 and have 2017-18 deemed his first professional year.

 

Had he gone to Utica on an ATO, and started his ELC in 2018-19, the AHL games in 2017-18 would be played under an ATO and not under an SPC (as his deal would have started next year in that scenario), so any AHL games played in 2017-18 would not have counted toward a professional year.

 

At least that’s my read on the situation.

 

Basically, either way, his first professional year should be 2018-19, when it comes to expansion.

 

As for the ELC itself, if he signs this week and joins Vancouver, he will use up (burn) one year (2017-18) and have two years remaining on his ELC when he starts next season. 

Thanks, I hope you're right!

I know Gaudette is a good looking prospect, but the adjustment to pro takes a while for most players. Would be great if we could allow him to develop at a reasonable pace whether that's in the AHL or NHL with no fear of losing him to expansion.

I hope he signs tomorrow, and we get the low down from management on his eligibility for the potential expansion just so we know 100% what is going on.

We should probably also temper our expectations for him. Lots of guys start slow in the NHL out of College.

JT Compher: 5 points in first 21 NHL games - 30/41 GP in the AHL

Mark Jankowski: 21/66 GP in the NHL - 2 years older
Kyle Connor: 5 points in first 20 games
Alex Kerfoot: 39 in 72GP - 2 years older 22.7 S%
Danton Heinen: at 21 NHL 0 in 8GP - 44 in 64GP AHL
Will Butcher: 37/74GP - 2 Years older, 17 PP points
Alex Tuch: 31/71 GP in the NHL after 1 full year in the AHL 
Alex Iafallo: 25/73 GP at age 24

Tyson Jost: 19/58 GP in NHL - 2 years younger
Jack Roslovic: Needed 1.5 years in the AHL - 12/29 GP in NHL now
Anders Bjork: 12/30GP NHL

Tage Thompson: 9/37 GP in the NHL 1 year younger

^^^  Although I really like Dobson!  He's my first candidate to move up...

 

PS & on topic; hope upon hope we sign Gaudette 1st for the AHL balance of the season.  I will be very excited to see him for a few games with the Nucks if that is the decision?

 

But hope it starts in Utica!

Horvat aside, as fun as it is to watch those guys, they still have a ways to go before they're as good as Baertschi or Pouliot or (insert name of NHL'er acquired with or instead of draft picks.)

 

Ill take gaudette over both baertschi and puoliot.

No one is "against" picks but JB looks to have a good record with the ones he's used and obviously knows their value as much as anyone when making moves.  He clearly keeps enough to get the guys his team is targeting.

Not really. No one knows value as you can’t predict who’s still around in he next round. “Why isn’t anyone taking Lind?”

 

also so guadette was a Gillis pick, gadj was a torts firing. So really in over 4 years we got 4 players (3 trades, McCann too) selected from acquired picks. 4 if you consider lookwood who was the result of us reacquiring a pick we traded away prior.

It's the constant griping and the take that draft picks are the only avenue to rebuilding that prompt the percentage comment and it's perfectly valid - sometimes there's more value in an older prospect. 

 

I don’t think I’ve heard people ever say draft picks are the ONLY avenue. Just the most important and most successful way to build a competitive team. Our people really against good hockey trades like hunter for granny or holm for Leipsic?

Guadette was indeed a Benning Pick. Gadjovich was a 2nd for Blue Jackets Hiring Torts, if we got a second every time we fired a coach... I know what you were getting at

Is he signed yet?  Did I miss the memo?

Gillis traded Diaz at the deadline to NYR... Benefits of acquiring picks....

 

During a rebuild picks are a must.  Each one is a chance at a future core piece.  This kid appears to be a “Golden Ticket”.
