Also… would anyone else be up for trading Miller, Garland, Boeser, Horvat and going full tank with a tonne of young assets for a chance at Bedard???

To answer your question, no - not interested in 'full tank'.


And to add, if we wanted to tank, all Allvin would have to do is trade Demko and we'd be done like dinner.

Connor Bedard was pumping up Bains’ tires on Donnie and Dhali on top of stating how big of a Canucks fan Connor himself is. 


He was born and raised in North Vancouver, so this is not surprising.  When he was growing up we were a Stanley Cup contender.

Linden Vey and Brendan Leipsic...boy, that's some legendary stuff Arshdeep's going to have to follow up on

There have been so many junior hockey scoring leaders that didn’t amount to a hill of beans in the NHL. Massive financial rewards drive an entirely other level of commitment. Professional athletes are the ultimate entrepreneurs - their assets are their body, mind, and drive. They are rewarded according to other people’s assessment of their worth at that activity. It takes a special kind of person to risk life and limb in that way, that can face that kind of pressure and still be effective. On top of that, there is a massive audience for every success and failure - if you fear public embarrassment, hockey just might not be for you.


Not every amateur can make that transition. Here’s hoping Arshdeep has that elusive something that can help him make that transition to pro - I love seeing local kids make it, and glad the Canucks are taking a chance on him.
