Green Building Posted October 9, 2015 Share Posted October 9, 2015 The draft is upcoming... it certainly hasn't passed us by yet. Who says "enjoying hockey" can't involve having a hypothetical hockey conversation? At least the OP put some thought and grammar into his writeup. The only dilemma this approach presents is waiting until the deadline to dish these players may be too long as they help the Canucks win, driving our own pick down the draft order. Not how I would look at it at all. Every day our vets are here they spend time, and share knowledge with, our rookies and youngsters. But hey, I'm not really a fan of a crash and burn firesale unless it is a full blown rebuild. Since this is obviously not that, let the vets stick, see how the season goes as far as who is stepping up, then assess and project from there. I'm a fan of all 3 of those players you listed. In fact, Hamhuis' jersey is the only Canucks jersey I own. If he can rebound from last years slight slip in play I'd like him to stay and mentor some young guys like Hutton and Sbisa. It's difficult to know what Vrbata thinks about his role on the team. If he has a good season playing second line minutes with Horvat and winger x then it would be great for him to stay. If the team has an up and down go of it and he finds himself looking up at others getting Sedin time maybe he requests out? Who knows? Since it's all hypothetical and only for the purpose of conversation, let's assume the aforementioned have good/great seasons, and Edler does as well. Edler would possibly yield the best return (depending on the supply demand at the time), but moving him leaves a hole in the top 4. Would you expect Hutton to make the rookie leap into the top 4 in his 1st season? Just out of curiosity sake. What does cdc think 3 first rounders between 20 and 30 overall could get us to move up? A top 3???? No chance unless Milbury takes over as GM before the draft. Just from memory, you usually need at least a top 10 pick as a starting point to move up into the top 3. I say keep the 3 picks and take 3 chances instead of 1. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
