A lot of teams screw up here. We got 2 star players in a row with EP and Hughes, and OJ is turning into a solid top 4 guys at 5. but there are as many failures in the top 10 as success. finishing 2-3-5 last in the league does not guarantee 3 core players that will be as good as we have gotten.

ummm Boeser was a calder nominee, finished 2nd, and was an all star and all star MVP if i recall... doesn't he count as a star?

I like it.

If he's retired, bring him in as a consultant to hire the gm/coach.

In any event, it would be nice to have someone experienced holding FA's hand through the process.

- Reubenkincade

That was my thought too. Let him decide if he wants to be consultant (if he wants to stay mostly retired) or president.

An advisor to the chairman of the board.
Hitchcock would be good in a senior role with Canucks, I never even thought about him.

Edit, he is currently an advisor with Oilers

Looking at the Oilers drafting, since 2013 they’ve added five defencemen through their own drafting to their team, Darnell Nurse, Kaleb Jones, William Lagesson, Ethan Bear & Evan Bouchard, they also have Klefbom but he was drafted in 2011, and, they have Broberg on the way.

During that time they also added McDavid, Draisaitl, Yamamoto & Puljujarvi to their team via the draft. Maybe their drafting was better than I thought?

Miller, 2nd to Calgary for M. Tkachuck
Boeser to Ottawa for B. Tkachuck
Petey to Devils for J. Hughes +

Brotherly Love anyone?

Most general managers want their own coach so hiring a new coach and then firing the GM would be counterproductive from a financial standpoint in my opinion. I think you make wholesale changes, get a president, general manager and a new coach but make sure the top guy has his own picks in place.
- Pacificgem

Not disagreeing and you are right for the most part. I could just see an interim coaching change if things keep spiralling down. If they want wholesale changes the offseason is the place for that. Top to bottom.

Defense? How about ken Hitchcock? He can be interim coach and gm. Two birds.
- RealityChecker

Funny...thought about Hitch as well. I ran into him at the betting lounge in Kelowna a few years back betting horse races. Should have asked if he'd like to coach in Van in a few years lol

Interim is a highly likely possibility

Pretty good for a team that has had 4 first overall picks a third a fourth a seventh and an eighth since 2010.

Nice deflection but I said from 2013, which is eight drafts ago. They’ve had one first overall in that time.

Still, adding that many defencemen is admirable in my opinion.

It's been decent but it always gets over-shadowed by the fact they picked high for so long and squandered a few big picks (Yakupov/Hall etc)

Does this apply to Marky as well? Or it only applies to some players or some injuries?

Their first 1st overall pick was twelve drafts ago this spring, I’m talking current. People still hung up on them drafting first overall twelve drafts ago need to move on
