I am hoping in two years we see Jack and Jett in the Canucks lineup. 

Jett seems to be a ways off, injuries slowing him down a bit and his style of play will take a while to develop.

You maybe right but maybe 3 years for both of them but I am a bit of an optimist. :)

That'd be cool, I'd imagine he will have a similar road to Brisebois. Few years in junior and a few in Utica. Exciting for his style of play tho, we haven't had a D like him since bieksa.

He came to Dev, Camp 5' 11" 190 lb.  He will be a solid Dman.

I'm not expecting Woo to compete for a spot until at least his D+4 year, even then only as an injury call up. Will probably spend all of his waiver exemption time in AHL & having to fight his way into line-up on his 1st year of waiver eligibility.

Rathbone and Harvard with a pair of games this weekend. Tonight versus Quinnipiac and tomorrow versus Princeton. Both games are 7pm ET starts (4pm in Vancouver). Games look to be on ESPN+ and PPV ($2.99 per game). You can also buy an Ivy Pass and get access to all of Jack's games in November. I think it's only five bucks and lets you legally stream around 8 games this month. Link is here: https://portal.stretchinternet.com/harvard/. Just select men's ice hockey and click through and it's pretty easy to figure out.

Looks like Rathbone has been promoted to the top pair with Fox! Only took him one game to impress the coach I guess.

 

 

That's cool to see that Rathbone is impressing already.  The kid is a sleeper for us.  I believe he will be on our team in two seasons, and be a HUGE contributor.  He's solidly built, skates great, plays a hard game, while having very good puck skills, and a high hockey IQ.  Liked him from day one, mostly (of course) because of his name.

Woo is ready after one to two years in the AHL. That’s 2.5 to 3.5 years IMO. He will be a full time player in a year after that. 

 

He has the right type of game to make it.

Some players continue to improve in all areas of the game as each year goes by from the draft and JR seems to be one of those guys.
