Is there any way we can entice him back a year early?

If the Canucks can negotiate with his KHL club to be released a year earlier that’d be fantastic. But I wouldn’t hold my breath. Better to wait then to mess his development up like we did kinda with Virtanen.

Pod can play NOW, but cause he has a contract wit KHL and from what people have said they dont break contracts sooner :( so ya we have to wait a year or two, but this guy can play now, we just gotta wait

All or nothing pick. Podkolzin either becomes a big time player for us or won’t play at all. 

 

I’m admittedly nervous about it but the Canucks scouting staff has earned the benefit of the doubt at this point.

I don't know how I feel. I know he's good, but another contract we need to wait for. Not sure how this plays out

The contract could be a good thing.  Let the KHL keep developing him and then get him on an ELC a bit later than we otherwise would have

so stoked! 

 

assuming he pans out as advertised, he will be a star for us in a few years when we're hopefully contending. off the books in the meantime.. 

 

also, since he doesn't help us in the short term, maybe we draft a bit higher because of that? I don't know, but I'm pumped..
