Predictions for Canucks opening night lineup

Rate this topic


Recommended Posts

It's always fun to be playing this game with free agency lurking around. Plenty of work ahead for our Canucks. We'll definitely be in the market for a bottom 6 FWD and another defenceman. This is what I think our lineup will look like after our barrage of moves so far: 

 

Miller - Petey - Boeser

Pearson - Bo - Garland

Hoglander - Dickinson - Podkolzin

Motte - Sutter - Lockwood

 

Hughes - Myers 

Ekman Larsson - Ceci

Juolevi - Rathbone

 

Demko

FA(Mrazek, Jones, Reimer) 

 

Extra: Highmore, Bailey

 

We're probably going to be in the market for a RHD. Currently, we only have Myers. There's a chance we may re-sign Hamonic but who knows. Schmidt could play the right side but personally, I think he's better on the left. I threw Rathbone on the right side because I really believe he has the potential to flourish there considering our depth in the left side. We also could use another center who can play in our bottom 6 and can kill penalties with Beagle gone. Hopefully we can get a guy like Turris if he's out in the market. We can also re-sign Sutter for say 1-2 year deal with $1.5-2 million AAV. The off-season is getting intense and I'm getting very excited

Oh okay. Thank you. I changed my projected lineup. I didn't know he signed elsewhere. He was pretty good for us late last season and deserved a extended look this upcoming season. Looks like we'll have to find another bottom 6 FWD. Maybe trading for a guy like Kerfoot would be nice

Any time. Schmidt might be gone by the end of day too, and Pettersson is going to be poached with an offersheet supposedly....:lol:

switch Pearson and Hogs and we have to assume were bringing in a defenseman or 2 like Schenn or Hamonic for toughness and grit

I confirm... it is true... any minute AS WE SPEAK... don't go away as our Schmidt trade thread refreshes every minute... word in the streets is that we will very likely get a pick or two back!! 3-4 teams have been circling back in the last hour or so...

My favorite part about this, is that this is going to be the team that grows together for awhile. We got a great, young core with us, and it'll likely stick for the next 3-5 years. 

We may need to get another top 4 RHD, but I see that as one of the few gaps we have.
