Trade 9OA to winnipeg for appleton and their 17th overall pick

 

draft 1 of either


Corson Ceulemans 

Scott Morrow

Aleksi Hemosalmi

Logan Mailloux


 

whichever jim thinks is the best outta the 4

 

have seen mock drafts having Scott Morrow and Aleksi Heimosalmi in the 2nd round. With a little bit of luck one of them is going to fall to the Canucks pick in the 2nd round. Obviously Canucks need a RHD in this offseason not in 4 years from now. Just look how long it will take Jett Woo to arrive at the NHL. Woo was drafted by the Canucks in the 2nd round with the 37 pick in the 2018 draft. He needs another season in the AHL with Abbotsford. That means a development time of 4 years.

Do you have any insider information ?

Canucks need C-depth badly, but if the winger will be great, then why pass?

 

Eklund

McTavish

Lysell*

Lucius

 

*  speed kills

Eklund and McTavish both likely gone by pick 9. Lysell or Johnson likely picks.

Can be done, there will be a lot of maneuvering over the summer. Its possible that Loui gets moved as part of a package, more likely that he's bought out.

 

There are very few guys that the Canucks won't explore trading right now.

I would be more then hyped to land Johnson or lysell ,

both players I feel could be another steal for us .

Lysell,Petterson,Hoglander 

Podkolzin, Miller , Boeser

 

deadly top 6 

 

with Pearson, Horvat , ??? 

As a third line 

 

Johnson would be great too but since Lysell is already playing in the SHL at the age of 18 I think he would be ready to step in sooner. following the same path as hoglander.

one more year after getting drafted in the SHL then making the team the following season

Johnson is a pp specialist, not sure his game will translate to the NHL.  
 

Scouching had a deep dive into his numbers and they seem highly one dimensional which is a liability at center,

respect your opinion on Johnson.

Let's watch this video and pay close attention to the first goal in the video at 0.30 minutes into the video.

I can tell you:

This is NHL like, this is how the best NHL wingers score goals in the NHL, this is Kirill Kaprizov like.

This move from Johnson can't be defended even the best D-Man in the NHL would struggle to defend this move. Only thing they can do is draw a interference penalty if they anticipate Johnson's move early and position themselves more to the outside.

Loui is being bough out.

Wheeler has a draft prediction up for The Athletic (paywall) and based on the conversations he's had, he believes that the Canucks' order of preference at 9 is Johnson, Eklund and then McTavish.

 

Pronman says the scouting industry has a top-tiers of 9 players.  Benning did say they liked 9 players.

Benning believes the contender window truly opens in 2 seasons.    That 9th overall pick could be part of that contender window.  Dumba is only under contract for 2 years.  Don't really see why they would trade for someone who could be a 2 year rental.   His contract would be up at the same time as Horvat, Miller, Höglander.  

 

Dumba is also not the best fit.  Vancouver has troubles defending and he needs a solid D partner to cover for him.  Tracking companies like Sportlogiq and CSA had Vancouver pretty much as the worst defensive team before even the Covid outbreak.  Last season already they were in the bottom tiers.  

 

That’s if, he still has a job in 2 years. I really doubt he’ll still be here if we happen to miss the playoffs again, this upcoming season. Especially if fans are allowed back into the arena.
 

It might not be the correct move, but to save his job, he should make this pick available.
