Michigan camp or Canucks camp - no I'm not being sarcastic, it's an honest question? 

 

I haven't watched Lockwood since world Jr's so I know virtually nothing about his development.

Canucks need winger depth, why isn’t he signed yet?  He should be in Utica also, not a 4th year in Michigan 

Because he wanted to stay in Michigan for a fourth year.

Missed a year of development due to shoulder injury.  He’s better in college.  Needs to get physically stronger.

Read what Lockwood said in Jaku’s “What’s on your mind?” Sidebar.  Lockwood has excellent character.  He still might not be an NHL player though.

He’s still very young.  Just turned 21 5 days ago.  After 4 years in Michigan (and this upcoming year is his 4th) he’s an unrestricted free agent I understand.

Hoglander and Madden would give him a run for that spot. I wouldn't consider it disappointing if one or both of those guys were on that level. There's so many high motor guys in this group, it might be difficult to find much separation between the top players.

I’ll check it out.  I don’t think he’s NHL ready either, but too young to give up on.

That's a bit disappointing. I held Lockwood fairly high, made the Top 10 Canucks Prospects. I thought he played similar to Madden? I haven't seen either play actually, but I understand they're both gritty, energy guys who get the dirty goals?

One of our underrated prospects. Will make the team if injuries don’t destroy him likely they’ve been doing rn. Physical player. Need to reunite him with Hughes on that PP.

He's the RW version of Mike Peca. He's willing to sell out his body to make a hit. And he did. He's learned to hold back a bit to manage his body and some players need to do this to survive their own bravado. He puts up points everywhere too. Add another captain to the mix next season. In 2 seasons this team is going to be ridiculously fast.

How do you figure? University and college can be the best years of your life. They were for me. Perhaps this is the journey he has chosen to travel. What was your journey......Or have you had one?

After 4 years in college a player can become a ufa.  I’m glad to see he says he wants to be a Canuck but it’s out of the Canucks control now.

Yes, but that will be his decision. He will have earned it. The fact that he has come to camp seems positive....Don’t you think? If he decides to sign somewhere else. Kismet !!!
