There was/is no youth to gut.

Yeah, at this point I wonder if even Lind (who some had high hopes for) even becomes anything.  Then there's question marks for Rathbone (3rd pair guy or strictly AHL star?), Mike D (not sure he has a future with us, given how Silovs probably passed him) and Lockwood (if he's anything more than a 4th liner), and at the same time Gadjovich didn't really show much promise either while in SJ.

Green did a real number on this kid.  Think he'll have a better year coming up now that he's had a full season of actual NHL coaching, but some of the damage is likely permanent.

Why cause he didn't make the big team, he did a real number on the kid?? Are you serious?  You just wanted to give this guy minutes without earning it?  Green did nothing.  He played in SJ for the whole season, and did pretty much nothing with it.

Isn't it true that Kole Lind's reputation is almost entirely based on Jim Benning's comments at the opening of the second round at the 2017 draft? Is Kole Lind still available?

 

And Gadjovich.  C'mon!  He doesn't skate at an NHL level and while he has been ok in the AHL he just isn't in the bigs.  0.07 ppg.  Ya, many of us had high hopes but almost a full year after losing him on waivers aren't we just a little more objective and a little less emotional about a player who should never see the NHL ice again.

I think this speaks as much about the greatest problem with the Canucks for the past many decades......sometimes great players are made, not found.  Canucks development outside of the crease is abysmal.  In fact, it speaks massive volumes that the Canucks have had more success with goalies than other positions in terms of creating solid NHL goalies.  If the Canucks found the Ian Clarks of defensive coaching, we'd be looking at a few more banners up in the rafters.

I wonder if the old regime focused too much on anecdotes and success in small snippets (e.g. did well in such and such a tournament, such that even if the player wasn't good elsewhere they were willing to use confirmation bias to justify their pick).  In contrast, I'd also like to be a fly on the wall in the Lightning draft room, and see how they were able to string together so many strong depth choices (they average around 4 picks that play in the NHL per draft, and had some where 6 or even all their picks at least saw NHL ice, if not had solid careers).
