Lets be realistic. The draft is in Vancouver this season. It has already been predetermined that we get Hughes. Book it.

Hate to rain on your parade but that's completely false, I believe the Sabres have the best prospect pool in the league because of those picks and with their future picks they used a 2019 2nd, two 3rds 2019/20 (Cliff Pu) and a 2020 6th to acquire a top line player to play with Eichel and he's got 20 goals already this year in 29 games.

Plus they still have two or three first round picks for 2019! Their own and they own both St. Louis's and San Jose's.

Bottom line is they've done more than "absolutely nothing" with their many picks.

I hope that Bo EP Jake BB Roussel and Leivo stay in the top 6 all year but yeah we need upgrades almost everywhere . I think next year continue building on the back first.

Dahlen is not that good yet. He is still a long way off

Thank goodness for EP huh?


Goldobin and Dahlen are not top 6 players right now. Just because they are better than Sven Granlund Gagner does not make them a top 6

- VANTEL

What exactly doesn't make them a top 6 player other then just your own personal eye test?

Didn't you have us trading Horvat 2 days ago?

I don't know maybe it would be nice if they hit 20 goals once . Maybe you can dig around for a couple of hours and find us another prospect that we won't draft.

I like it right now. He’s not as smart as Goldy, but he plays a heavier game and is much better on the forecheck/getting pucks back/having a nose for the net. Give it 5 games, see if they keep it up and if Leivo can start to read EP and BB better
- NewYorkNuck

Maybe not as nifty as Goldy. Goldy is loose with the puck & poor passes cost possession. He struggles on the PP especially & forces passes.

I saw Roussel give a nice pass to Virtanen so I assumed Horvat played with Virtanen and Roussel.
- LeftCoaster

Luvin Roussels’s speed & tenacity. He stands out like Burrows did disrupting the play. A solid signing imo.

I will say I hope Goldobin puts up big numbers . I would love to trade him this year. I don't think he is great despite putting up decent numbers playing with EP

I eventually would like to see what Bo Jake and MacEwen look like but until then I would like Roussell Bo and Jake.

I'm gonna be at the draft. I'm sure a bunch of us will be too. Be nice to see an extra 1st and or 2nd/3rd
- storm88

I thought Gaudette played a strong game last night, he was hard to knock off the puck, fought hard along the boards, had jump in his step. Now lets hope for consistency, game after game.
- Makita

He’s looking more n more comfortable. Constant upheaval & line juggling is difficult for him to find a groove. Kid has a good attitude & work ethic. 👍

I want to see them draft Byram and fix this D. As I mentioned before that can open up trading OJ in a few years for a top 6 prospect. The puck movement on the back end stinks.

I hope Canucks can fix half their problems this summer. The other half next year.

- VANTEL


I prioritize D also but Lefty is correct that another true elite winger is also needed. So i will say BFA although its subjective. I’m high on Byram & it takes a special F to beat him out.

Just read on TSN that Carolina is looking for scoring forwards, and Anaheim left handed 2nd/3rd pairing D. Look like we have some suitors out there!
- NewYorkNuck


Sven when healthy is at a good price.
As for D thats a tough but possible.

He can stay until Sutter comes back. Go back and use what he has learned in the NHL to dominate 20 minutes a night in the AHL. Then come back at the TDL once Sutter is traded.

IMO

- manvanfan


I’m not on the trade Sutter train. Never can have enough C’s & he can play wing as needed. Get an offer too good to pass on then sure.
