I wouldn’t be shocked Theo, he’s not a standout guy this year and last year was another tough year due to injuries.  
 

We need all the contract spots we can get so that we can try and sign next year’s Brogan Rafferty for free.  
 

I don’t think he will turn into more then an AHL player. His success came as a result of playing physical but he’s not built to play that way in the professional leagues. 

The Canucks drafted him and thus must've seen something they like. If injuries would scare them off, they wouldn't be so patient with OJ either then. The Canucks have invested a pick on him and by all accounts, it sounds like he wants to join us knowing that we drafted him. Lockwood still plays the game with speed and tenacity, which are attributes that we are building our team lately. If what he says is true, he shows good character, which is another aspect we look for. Worst case is we see if we can develop him further and if not, then we move on and he's hopefully finished his schooling to be ready for the next stage in his life as well.

At this point I'd almost prefer that we move/package him to a team with a clearer path/more space at F than use up a contract spot given our relative depth of this type of player.

 

Use him to fill other needs/recycle a pick.

19 games, 5 goals and 6 assists this season noticeable drop off from last season. Hope springs eternal

I think he will be a good AHL player and serves depth for the Canucks when injuries hit.

I think he becomes a UFA.  Last season, JB said Lockwood was ready for the AHL at the end of the college season.  I think Lockwood wanted the same as ?Boeser and Hughes, and get those NHL games at the end of his college season.  The only way he can burn that year off his elc is to play NHL games at the end of his college season, which (IMO) JB will not do.  That means it’s the AHL for Lockwood, and no year burned off his elc.  Given those circumstances Lockwood goes to his August UFA date, and picks a team (Jersey?) where he can play in the NHL sooner.  

I don’t know if he’s an NHL player, or ever will be.  So no loss.

I agree Alf, I don;t think he gets a contract here.  He would bbe very far down our depth chart if he did.

Man how things change, this was an earlier post

That dangle at the beginning of the highlight video is just so dirty and filthy, the player he went around should get tested.

 

Reminds me of a bit Kane or Gaudreau with the quick turns and the quickness to then make someone look bad and roof a shot.

 

We haven't had a prospect like this in a long time. The fact he has a bit of an edge to him makes me smile.

You gotta laugh. Cheerleaders one and all

What?  For sure fans cheer for their guys, but Lockwood is really not that great.  He never was more than that, was he?  I’m missing something here, again.  Alf struggles in cold weather. :picard:

Lockwood, with his 11 points, is actually only one point off the team lead (Slaker with 12 points) for Michigan this season.

 

The Wolverines lost Marody (51 points) and Calderone (45 points) two years ago, and then Quinn Hughes last year. Basically removed the top end of their offense, and haven’t (yet) replaced it.

 

Lockwood was never really a player who would singlehandedly put up huge numbers. As a compliment to a potent offensive group, he certainly has the ability to be a prolific scorer at that level (aka around a point per game NCAA player), but that’s not the situation he finds himself in Michigan this year.


Scoring is way down across the board, and if not for some strong goaltending this year, Michigan‘s record would be even worse than it is now (9-11-2). Just part of the cycle teams go through. The Wolverines just don’t have the horses on offense they once had, and Lockwood and the other seniors only really have enough juice to keep them (marginally) competitive most games (and that’s assuming the goalies play well).

Glad to see you back on CDC Sid... always enjoy your input on the various player threads.

If he played center I think his chances would be much better of earning a contract.  There just seem to be too many good young prospects that are ahead of him and in the pipeline.  His size and injury history aren't in his favor as well.  Sad for him but it means that the Canuck's finally don't need to worry over whether fringe prospects sign at this point.  Bigger fish to fry.

My point was not about how U Mich are doing but the unbridled  overstated enthusiasm and cheerleading some fans will show for any player that is a Vcr prospect regardless of reality  :lol:
