If Soderstrom is there, I'd take him (in the 10-15 range).
Any reason why Newhook has fallen during the year. Was quite highly ranked before the season started. I can't watch BCHL unfortunately . Is it a pure production thing or is it something about his game that won't translate?
What do you like about him?
What don't you like about him?
Likes - Elite IQ, great vision + passing ability. Breakout ability.
Dislikes - skating (acceleration) , physical consistency.
I can see the critique of his acceleration. Outside of it, I think his skating is pretty good. Agree/disagree?
I'm not expecting him to be physically consistent.
Agree that he has a high IQ. His production seems to be coming along at a Liljegren level as well.
Agreed on the skating.
Close the thread. Benning says they are going to sign Edler to a extension and he will not be traded. they are also not trading any draft picks for 2019 so they will not be buyers as well
Benning says Canucks priorities remain the future, Edler extension - Sportsnet.ca
Benning says he will not be trading any picks for the 2019 either
So for all those who were making fun of me a couple of weeks ago for the Canucks trading there 1st round pick in 2019 for Defence Help ie - Dante Fabbro
here is now a link form a media member saying the same thing. So I guess maybe I got luck on this one too.
Canucks trade targets: Young defencemen that could step into...
looking for all those guys who were calling me out two weeks ago.
so you're rumour is somehow proven by another rumour
Still have a hard time believing they'd trade the 1st the year they're hosting.
Exactly. I dislike Jim as much as the next guy but that's a hard sell, especially for someone still in college.
I get it's a weak draft and all that but just doesn't add up.
Verify rumor by local media who have broken many stories on the team first. that is ok. It really does not matter to me
This belongs in the Edler thread
You've simply linked the article that the reddit post is referring to. So to summarize there is one article out there by Botchford which appears to be more speculation than anything. I've also read rumours that Aqua specifically prohibited Benning from trading the first round pick this year given that the draft is being held here.
What ever you guys say
I always appreciate "inside" reports but don't get snarky when people disagree with the rumour. I've get you've called some stuff, you've also been way wrong about a lot. Two examples.
I'd trade 11 for Fabbro without hesitation.
Reading between the lines, it would appear that Jimbo and the Canuck scouts aren't too bullish about players in this year's draft who might be available in the bottom half of the first round. Benning saying there's no guarantee of getting a player at that point in the draft who can actually make it.
Obviously a big change from what they were saying in the years that Woo, Lind and Demko were drafted in top half of the second round. But have heard the consensus that after pick 15-16 the 2019 draft really drops off. So acquiring a first rounder from a contending team isn't all that attractive.
Canucks should target Fabbro and Fox in potential trades or in free agency, as they continue to rebuild their blueline.
Well Benning was on the radio last week saying they will get a very good player in the first round based on their scouts analysis.
I am open to trading a first round draft pick for a young defenceman. Fabbro for a 10th overall would be overkill though as you can probably draft Byram or Broberg in that range.
I would trade 2020 first round draft pick for Fabbro though
Close the thread? Did the draft get cancelled as well?
I would trade the 2020 1st round pick for Fabbro for sure. just my opnion.
If Benning says he will not trade any picks at this years draft then I would have to be the 2020 pick to get a young D man
