With Young Stars on Friday, and training camp right around the corner, I figure it's worth making a poll to gauge where we think our bubble players are before actually seeing them play. 

 

The way I see it, the following forward spots are locks:

 

D. Sedin

H. Sedin

Horvat

Sutter

Baertschi

Gagner

Granlund

Vanek

Eriksson

Dorsett

 

It should be assumed that others will have to earn spots for themselves. This list could include any 4 of Burmistrov, Rodin, Boucher, Boeser, Goldobin, Rodin, Gaunce, Virtanen, White, Megna or Chaput.

 

Defense is pretty much set, with the following being locks:

 

Edler

Tanev

Hutton

Gudbranson

Stecher

MDZ

 

Leaving one or two spots for an extra D.

 

Since it's early and we're still working under assumptions, please assume the following:

- The team will go with 14 F, 7 D

- Roster will be merit based, regardless of waiver status

- No one is injured (yes, I know Dorsett/Gaunce could potentially be out to start the year, but we're going to ignore this)

-This does not include any lines or pairings, rather it is based on who makes the team.

 

So then, who fills out the 11-14th forward spots, and who is our extra D?

Del Zotto - Gudbranson

Extras: Wiercioch (7th defenceman)

you're probably right but if Gaunce needs more rehab time I hope Boeser gets a chance. 

 

I just don't know about Boucher... is there any indication that he's been training harder than before? I could see White taking that spot from him.

It's been awfully quiet as with some other players about their summer workout. I guess we'll just wait and see how he shows up to training camp. After earning a one-way contract, maybe that could be a big motivation for him to make the team as one of the extra forwards. There will be injuries, so he could quickly see himself on the ice in a Canucks uniform.

Baertschi-Horvat-Eriksson

Sedin-Sedin-Boeser

Vanek-Sutter-Gagner

Granlund-Burmistrov-Rodin

Dorsett-Boucher 

 

Edler-Stecher

Hutton-Tanev

Del Zotto-Gudbranson

Wiercoch

 

There is an "out there" alternative with the same roster where Green splits up the Sedins to see how it goes to utilize their playmaking while covering speed issues.  Their tricks are a bit stale now and it might force some new creativity.  

 

Sedin-Horvat-Eriksson

Baertschi-Sedin- Boeser

I'll amalgamate the numbers when they start to fill out more. Strong showing for Gaunce/Burmistrov so far. 

 

It just occurred to me now to add Juolevi as an option to D. I had to rush the rest of the polls because I hit enter early. Anyone think he makes it, and should I add him?

If Megna is there as an option, Juolevi should be there too. ;)

Sorry, totally disagree on 14F/7D so I refuse to complete your limited little poll :P

 

Baer, Horvat, Eriksson

Sedin, Sedin, Granlund

Vanek, Gagner, Rodin or Boeser (may the best man win)

Burmistrov, Sutter, Dorsett

 

Gaunce (only because I think he'll need time from his surgery/lack of training)

 

Edler, Stecher

Hutton, Tanev

MDZ, Gudbranson

 

Wiercicoh, Biega

 

Markstrom, Nilsson

Pretty sure he's Europe bound... but in a bit of a sadistic way, I kind of home someone gets a minor injury and he gets his 9 games. If he looks ready...boy things get interesting then!

The Canucks would be wise to go 14 F/7D to start. Vegas could be waiving as many as 5-7 NHL ready D that would sooner be waiver grabs than any of the guys we expose. Sneak them through early, as options for later.

Fair point but I doubt they're waiving anyone I'd actually want and if we're picking up a D it would have to pretty much be a righty given our LD depth, which they only have 2 of (Colin Miller who they won't be waiving  and Deryk Engelland who I don't want).

 

Who exactly are you proposing they're waiving that we should pick up?

I don't think Dorsett is guaranteed a spot on our team. He's coming back from a serious injury and if he can't play his tough style then he doesn't provide much else. He's a good character guy but with injuries and (if) other young guys perform well then I can see Dorsett being waived if not traded,

^ this I like. Bo and Loui could be great together. 

 

1st unit PP of Sedin, Sedin, Vanek, Granny, MDZ?

2nd unit Bo, Boeser/Rodin, Hutton, Loui and Gagner?

 

The D parings make sense to me too.

I don't think he is proposing grabbing anyone off waivers, just that if we waive Dmen around the time Vegas does then it's less likely our players are plucked. In other words Vegas waived players would be more desirable to claim than our waived players.
