    If Benning hadn't screwed up the D, and the Goaltending, and the bottom 6, and the cap structure, and the coaching staff, this team would be going places.

    That's 207 words without a single period used. Impressive M2B.

    Yup.........I just said this a few days ago.............Benning did the exact opposite of what he should have done. Pissing away our picks for lottery tickets that never worked out..........We actually traded capital for Derrick Pouliot.........when we most likely could've had him for free. Thank you Mr. Benning........ugh

    The early results are looking good for Hog, he’s an exciting player to watch. The way he’s been playing and driving possession, looks like he would have put up more points but I reckon those will come with time.

    How he’s able to retain or re take the puck out of contact is impressive, elite stuff.

    awaiting in the wings among our 2nd rounders Woo and Lind. Hope those guys can also make an impact for us. Clearly Kole Lind was not rated in the 1st round by the Canucks to be a 3rd liner.

    when was the last time the Canucks had a 20 year old player in the line up not drafted in the 1st round? wow, we went big with Hoglander at 40.

    So the following draft, we decided more is better.

    So we drafted at 82. That's twice as better.

    Thank-you Jimbo.*

    *yes, that was a cut'n'paste, nothing slips by you guys/gals/non-human entities (you know which one you are)

    I wonder how much his forecheck work will be taken into consideration for Calder voting, because that has a big impact on the game, and having not seen much of the other rookies, I presume Hoglander is by far the best forechecker out of the rookies.

    Free newspaper article headline that I just thought of, for any writer that wants it, pertaining to how fast Hogs skates, and how much energy he has:

    "WHEELS ON NILS"

    This guy will be money with Podz

    Also I really like the Fiala comparison, many similarities to how they play

    Fiala shys away from contact once he gets a couple licks in against him

    Thanks for posting.
    Interesting to note that Hoglander as a 20 year old is ranked second only behind a 23 year old Kaprizov. That’s pretty damn impressive given the age disparity!
    The points he’s getting aren’t as surprising to me as his solid defensive play. I expected him to be good offensively but a liability in his own zone. I wasn’t expecting him to stick in the top 6 this year but he’s been a huge positive surprise defensively.

    As tough and competitive (and skilled) as Hogs is he sure is smart away from the puck. But his excellent defensive play doesn’t negatively impact his offence. He actually builds offence from his defence. No wonder Green drools taking about Hogs.

    Yeah you can't help but like this guy - he's been our JT Miller this year so far...........probably one of our most consistent players who always seems to be making plays. His compete level is off the charts.

    He's got such good hands and his vision is reallly good. He's always finding the open man. Would love to see him get a spin with Petey and co. sometime.

    We definitely have a player here............

    If Hogs saw PP1 time, like some of the other top rookies this year do, I think we could double his points. Even so, he deserves to be a Calder Finalist, and could certainly be a better player than those other young guys who are getting more opportunity.

    By next year, the Canucks could have three puck hounds with relentless motors in Miller, hoglander and podkolzin. If the Canucks can add a solid third line center that doesn't get caved in, the forwards could look very nice.

    Yeah I'm hoping the trade Gaudette and Jake and get a solid 3rd line center........definitely needed.

    Very little since Calder is usually about points

    Podkolzin can play centre on the Russian Mens National Team so they may want to give him a window to see he can play the position on the Canucks.

    He may be better than Sutter: 21 games NO assists.

    That's my assistant captain you're talking bout.
