Johnny Torts Posted December 18, 2015 Share Posted December 18, 2015 Ownership & Management Ownership won't let Vancouver go full rebuild, but what does that mean? Essentially, trading the Sedins, which isn't something most of this fan base wants anyways. Sell a Higgins, a Burrows, ownership won't bat an eye towards management. That being said, ownership .... [...listening to tsn1040 and a caller bring up trading the sedins, shouldn't happen, not going to happen. If they still have more in the tank come to the end of their contract, they'd be great secondary scorers.] Sorry that I got sidetracked, but ownership needs to understand that we lack depth but JB is quickly stacking our cupboards ie. Our recent 7th rounder Tate Olsen, he is looking like he can turn into a player after what he is doing this season(I bring him up because I believe he's a find in the 7th round, not because I think he is a top prospect of ours). If baertchi can be a young Hansen (good 3rd liner, 2nd plug) which is much more probable than those wanting or expecting him to net 2 goals a night, then it's a win. I'd gamble and pick subban every day of the week. Shinkaruk is showing that there were reasons he was rated top10 in his draft year and moved down, not up, b/c of obvious reasons. Dorsett! What heart, what skill for a fourth liner that doesn't get the attention for his plays. Again, with a strong 2016 draft, a couple FA signings, we will have more depth, push for a playoff spot. There will be some rivalry between Jared and Bo as to who is number 1/2 in the future, it should push them beyond their limits. To the people that scream "Fire Willie" The 2014 off-season, everyone knew we would be bottom feeders, those were the expectations. But, we overachieved. We really did. With the twins coming off seasons where everyone said "this is expected, they're older and they can't produce as much", they had a good season under Willie, we relied on a rookie centre to take critical draws because he was our best face off man at that point, and a horrendous D ( Bieksa, Weber, Sbisa ) we did much better than we should have. Did management think they'd do this well or were they expecting a competitive tank? Willie is great, he's been given an AHL line up with a couple superstars and a couple prospects and he's trying his best to win. Look at all the positives! There is a TON of them. The true Canucks fans know that if we aren't already, we will be headed in the right direction with JB because he understands how important it is. Now they are young right now, but we will have those call ups necessary to stay competitive as early as next season with Subban Fedun Pedan all being a year older. Thanks for reading guys and I hope this lets some of you stay positive. Happy Holidays. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
