If you make that thread in main board, Oilers fans will turn inside-out with righteous indignation. I've thought about it for 19 seconds and have decided it is scary which must mean its fair.

I would do it because:
a) Yakupov seems reminiscent of Bure, albrit with some of Ovechkin's style thrown in.

and b) There's no real way for us to get young top end talent without tanking, unless maybe we could get CBJ's first for Schneider...There's always risk involved no matter which way you do it.

I doubt Gillis is looking to acquire a future superstar at the moment, though.

Maybe as a pure hockey trade, but Edler only has one year left and he's UFA. Yakupov has years left before you have to worry about him hitting UFA status. I think his #1 status though has caused some over-rating. It looked like a weak draft year on the top end.

Just wanted to add a good schneider highlight video, although the music sucks the creator did a good job with the footage. I am almost tempted to post this on the main board for people who still claim hes an overrated backup by canucks fans. Maybe email it to pj stock who said he didnt understand the love affair people have with schneider....during this years playoffs.

Not too concerning given that's a few years away and there are enough prospects in the pipeline that we can hope at least a few workout to replace them. Now if all the prospect flop... then we're in trouble.

I think the fact that most of our promising young guns are shaping up to be solid 2-way players (Tanev, Hansen, Corrado, Gaunce, Schroeder to name a few) bodes well for our post-Sedin future. I predict a pretty seamless transition from our offensive-minded system to a something more similar to what the Preds or Yotes play - scoring by committee and rocksolid defense.

Neither of those teams are looking like cup contenders imo.
I think people are being too optimistic with the idea that losing the sedins won't be a massive blow.

Canucks will have to fine some replacements. Draft or trade.

Right now I don't think they really have anyone, but lots of time.


Maybe they nab the next Giroux at the next draft.

Yes, they will have to alter their game plan without the Sedins. By then, Kesler et. al will be the focus, and the team will morph into more of a defensive club. However, you still need the push from below. Hopefully, one of Gaunce, Jensen, Kassian, Bjugstad (), Labate, Grenier () etc... turns into a 1st line forward... Then they are set.


You look at a team like LA, and the key outlier among their squad is Kopitar. A big, defensively sound, almost PPG player leading the way. The Canucks need someone like that... They need a legit 1st line forward to emerge from within their ranks. Then, Kesler+said forward should be enough of a focus for the squad moving forward.

You think he'd still be there at 30th overall?

I guess it is a deep draft, though...

He can do it, but we really do need an improved defense. We're like the 2011 Flyers except we have less dynamic offense and better goal tending.
