Hearing Gaunce is being talked about between Florida and the Canucks in a possible deal involving Bjugstad.

Edit again:

JUST TWEETED:
Gaunce + Luongo?

Bjugstad + 1st + Something?

I'd certainly rather Bjugstad than Gaunce...

it should be a bannable offence to quote or post completely made up garbage from an obvious gimmick

The difference isn't a first for Luongo though.


Not a great deal.

Our whole team + management team would be traded if that's the criteria.

Also noticed that once the Canucks get Gaunce and Lack signed they will be at 47 contracts/50... I guess Gaunce will slide though, assuming he returns to junior.

You can say this about basically all of America. Even a lot of states that are considered progressive.

Excellent read.

By the way, are there many 20-year olds that dominant in the Q? I don't follow it that much.

If he becomes the next Burrows I would be really happy.

Someone put together a Mallet hilight reel on youtube of all his goals. The one main thing I noticed was the majority of his goals were created by his teamates. He just drove hard to the net and buried a quick one-timer or rebound. The Burrows comparison is pretty good in my opinion. He doesnt have Burrows hands, yet he is much bigger and tougher than Burrows.

Not too sure how to answer that question, it's certainly the highest scoring league. It isn't uncommon to have players put up high offensive numbers in the Q. What you could do though is look at what other 1st round picks out of the Q accomplished at the same age, use that as a comparison. There were no Q forwards drafted in the 1st round of the 2010 draft (Mallet's draft year) so we kind of need to compare 2009 Q 1st rounders and their stats 2 years after their draft year.

If you check out guys like Jordan Caron or Phillipe Paradis, Mallet looks promising. I'd say he could certainly become a nasty 3rd liner for us, which is a great pick-up in the 2nd round. If he continues to develop and we get a bit lucky he could be more, who knows.

Thanks for posting that article. I think the question is, do the Canuck/Wolves coaching staff try Mallet in the centre position considering he flourished when playing that position in his breakout year? I hope they at least try him there. If I remember correctly, hes good at faceoffs, a good skater and is extremely reliable defensively.. sounds like the perfect attributes for an impact centre.

FTFY. He turned 20 after his season was over (or close to over) — late May birthday. Could technically go back next season, like Friesen did this year, but won't.

I think in his role, it's pretty unique to put up these kind of numbers. They weren't supposed to do as well as they did, as most of the high scoring players left after last season, and Mallet was their best/2nd best player. When you consider that he's also defensively reliable, one of the most physical players in the Q and apparently a Top 3 fighter (according to hockeyfights.com) then you get a pretty intriguing package.
