The Chicoutimi Cucumber Posted April 29, 2018 Share Posted April 29, 2018 32 minutes ago, mineral said: Well, looks their prospect pool is starting to help them turn the corner. Boeser is a beast, and i think they also have a few other special players that could join in the next 1-2 years. On another note, i could see MB totally going for Tkachuk. Big body, power forward. Wonder though if his pedigree is upselling him at this stage. Watch Ottawa go with Zadina and burn us for the next 12 years. From what I'm reading, Tkachuk is the nightmare and all too plausibly an MB choice. Fingers crossed. He *did* say "speed and youth" are the new model after all As for the Canucks, despite the Vrtanen debacle they have been pretty good at drafting and recruiting young players. Boeser is, as you say, the real deal - in his rookie season, already better than any FW on the Habs - and while Elias Pedersen may require some adjusting to the NHL game, he too looks like a prodigious talent. Gaudette also looks very promising, while Bo Horvat is a real core piece. Their problem seems to be on the back end, but on the whole, my impression is that the Canucks are on the right trajectory, with some genuinely elite talent in the organization. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
