I'll take the words of Chris Tanev, who's very qualified to make assessments and prognostications on Quinn Hughes over anything you've got to say.  Thanks.

Not sure I ever heard Chris Tanev say Hughes is great at playing defensively.

21 years old. Already one of the best offensive defencemen in the league. Eff Makar and the others. Hughes Is Ours and yes he’s going to get a whole lot better too.

Unsure as to the validity of the source, but figures of Petey for 7x5 and Hughes for 4.8x3 have been floating around Twitter...

Hmm that would go against what his agent is saying.

 

Hes saying Quinn will likely be a longer contract than Peteys.

Well after re-reading, supposedly these were the original offers and not the current state of affairs....

I think it makes sense what the agent said with a shorter deal for EP and a longer deal for QH.

 

QH is a bit of an unknown as to how effective he will be in the defensive parts of the game in his prime, but apart from that quite certain he will develop into an elite passer, play driver and puck handler. He sort of already is of course but will get better.

 

EP on the other hand is an established 1C who will bring a solid two way game along with elite shooting and playmaking, but there are question marks on durability (although the wrist injury is hopefully just a freak incident) and nobody really knows yet if he will be one of the 30 best centers in the league or one of the five best, so a bridge deal makes sense for all parties.

 

So 7x7 for QH and 3x7 for EP in current economic climate? One can hope...

Eff Makar?

Makar is a true #1.  

Not sure why people keep pointing out that hes 21.  By 21 most potential top dmen have already shown the ability to play an all around game.  Hughes has shown hes as one dimensional as they come.

People are just hating on Makar because they're jealous. I know I am jealous.

 

Hughes was much better defensively last year and not as good this year. That said, it's too early to write him off, as he is still young and will likely improve defensively as he gets more experience.

Makar is not on the Canucks. Hence then eff him. He is not ours. 
 

We are lucky to have Hughes even though he struggled defensively last year. You have no idea what Hughes will be in a few years. Hughes was actually better all around in his first season. 
 

Pointing out that he’s 21 is a no brainer. Most defencemen are lucky to even play a game at that age.

 

I just can’t take you seriously. Too many times I’ve seen you write trash about Boeser. A rounded goal scorer that took him a few years to get there. Just like most players

No but he’s said multiple times that at some point he’s going to be the best defencemen in the league. Who knows if that’ll ever come to fruition but that’s pretty high praise

The family that plays together stays together?  Hughes cruise?

In a dream scenario I’d love to have all three Hughes boys on our team.

You're absolutely right - though I can understand the team's desire to move on. Problem is, we haven't found that guy yet. 

Been seven years and they still haven’t found that defensive guy yet.  Which is odd since offensive D men, which we have plenty of, you’d think would be harder to get.
