2) I've been studying the Trump phenomenon and while I am not taking this political, nor do I wish to, if anything you're the one who resembles Trump and his voters. You're selling the idea that the [nux/usa] are in a state of disaster, that the management is completely incompetent, you're so frustrated by the establishment that you want to see them all fired, you absurdly caricature their dealmaking then try to hammer them on deals that weren't even that bad at all, your idea of re-building the [nux/usa] is to set everything on fire and hope things get better, you'd rather someone with zero experience run the [nux/usa], you relentlessly insult and mock the people who disagree with you and accuse them of being shills, you delude yourselves with confirmation bias and parrot discredited narratives over and over on a website that you've turned into an angry echo chamber, and you use subtly racist words like how do you know I don't have ancestry from Crete?

On a H. Lindholm / Marner trade proposal

Quote:
Mitch Marner is going to be every bit as good of a player as Matthews. Marner is as untouchable as Matthews. Nylander I could make a case for but I like some of the kids the Leafs have in the system (Neilson, Dermott) and have 0 interest in moving Nylander because the leafs D could sort its self out from with in.

2 Years from now

Rielly / Neilson

Dermott / Z

Gards / Carrick

Marcinin

Why don't fringe NHLers switch to a plant-based diet?

First off, mods feel free to PM me if this subject is too touchy since I don't want people to start going on a crusade against vegans.


So I was wondering this, with some athletes (Williams' sister, Diaz brothers, ) switching to a plant-based diet and seeing some success, why don't we see more players do the same? I know it's more uncommon in the big four sports (NBA, NFL, MLB & NHL) and we don't know for a fact how beneficial it could be to the players but would a Sidney Crosby on a plant-based diet be much better? Why don't we see fringe guys like Brian Flynn, Adam Pardy, etc. try to maximize their chances to the fullest and grab every advantages that's available for them if it means that they can stay in the NHL?

Obviously, there's the whole 'protein' argument which is false if you do your homework, there are other ways to get your protein and these guys are loaded with cash so even if it costs a little more it doesn't matter to them. It's hard to determine how much it would help your performance but I would like to think stamina wise, switching to a plant-based diet would help your cardio.

Thoughts on the subject? Please try to keep it civilized, my goal here isn't to say that every player should switch to veganism.

FTR, I am not a vegan.

Speed is overrated AND is detrimental to most players.

My reasoning: Guys like Grabner, Hagelin, Cogliano, Helm are some of the quickest skaters, but don't have the skills to handle and shoot the puck at that speed to be as good as they should be.

Pretty much everyone can be a "Leaf killer" if the team sucks. We don't know who is actually a Leaf killer because we aren't a contender yet. If there are players that do great against us even when we are a legit top 5 team, I'll believe they are Leaf killers. Right now, they are just taking advantage of a team under construction. I'm sure Leaf killers are also Oiler, Avalanche and Coyotes killers as well.

Needless to say.. this year has been a disappointment in terms of the standings.

I did up a couple scenarios of the current Canucks forwards & project prospect pipeline to visualize what we got in the coming next 2 seasons.


FORWARDS:
Canucks 2017-18 - Scenario #1:
If you think Baertschi-Horvat-Boeser is a potential NHL 1st line
+ Sedin with Granlund a NHL 2nd line
+ Goldobin can be a LW3, the Canucks ’17-18’ roster would be:
Baertschi / Horvat / Boeser
Sedin / Sedin / Granlund (RW2)
Goldobin / C3 / RW3
Eriksson / Sutter / Virtanen
Granlund (LW5) / C5 / RW5

Canucks 2017-18 - Scenario #2:
If you think Horvat is NOT a C1
+ Goldobin is a LW1
+ Boeser is a RW1, the Canucks ’17-18’ roster would be:
Goldobin / C1 / Boeser
Baertschi / Horvat / RW2
Sedin / Sedin / Granlund
Eriksson / Sutter / Virtanen
LW5 / C5 / RW5

Canucks 2018-19 - Scenario #1:
If you think Horvat is NOT a C1
+ Gaudette is a C1
+ Boeser is a RW1
+ Sedins don't retire in summer 2018, the Canucks ’18-’19 roster would be:
Goldobin / Gaudette / Boeser
Baertschi / Horvat / Virtanen
Sedin / Sedin / Granlund
Eriksson / Sutter / RW4
LW5 / C5 / RW5

Canucks 2018-19 - Scenario #2:
If you think Horvat is NOT a C1
+ Gaudette is a C1
+ Boeser is a RW1
+ Sedins retire in summer 2018), the Canucks ’18-’19 roster would be:
Goldobin / Gaudette / Boeser
Baertschi / Horvat / Virtanen
LW3 / C3 / Granlund
Eriksson / Sutter / RW4
LW5 / C5 / RW5

Canucks 2018-19 - Scenario #3A:
If you think Horvat is NOT a C1
+ Gaudette is a C1
+ Boeser is a RW1
+ Goldobin doesn't pan out on Gaudette + Boeser's wing, the Canucks ’18-’19 roster would be:
LW1 / Gaudette / Boeser
Baertschi / Horvat / Virtanen
Goldobin / C3 / Granlund
Eriksson / Sutter / RW4
LW5 / C5 / RW5


Canucks 2018-19 - Scenario #3B:
If you think Horvat is NOT a C1
+ Gaudette is a C1
+ Boeser is a RW1
+ Virtanen becomes a RW2
+ Goldobin doesn't pan out
= I could see Granlund developing into a solid LW1 complimentary player alongside Gaudette + Boeser =
Granlund / Gaudette / Boeser
Baertschi / Horvat / Virtanen
Goldobin / C3 / RW3 (Lockwood?)
Eriksson / Sutter / RW4
LW5 / C5 / RW5

*C3 = Gaunce, Chaput, Macewen, Mckenzie, Cassels
*RW3 = Lockwood


Most pressing needs depend on whether:
1) you think Gaudette projects as a C1 by the end of next '17-'18 season and/or;
2) you think Horvat projects as a C1

Either way, we still really need to draft a C this upcoming draft... the q remains is if we are picking at #4 or 5, do we still draft BPA (Owen Tippett or Cale Makar) over a Mittelstadt or Glass based on our C needs? Owen Tippett may be a one trick pony but he's a helluva goal scorer it seems.. Cale Makar is a great PMD prospect which has been well-documented in the NHL Draft thread..


Canucks Prospect Pool:
LW/C/RW:
Dahlen / Gaudette / Lockwood
Stukel / Cassels / Zhukenov
LW3 / MacEwen / Grenier
LW4 / Mckenzie / Jasek
LW5 / Abols / RW5

Comments:
Alot of big centers in the pipeline... MacEwen, Mckenzie and Abols.. so I wouldn't sweat too much over losing Gaunce in the expansion draft.


DEFENCE:
Most posters are educated enough to know that we need a PMD to take us to the promised land... and we all know PMD don't grow on trees... But we also know that 2018 draft is deeper for dmen prospects; which should sway us to picking a C wherever we're slotted in at the draft (unless we're draft #4 or 5 onwards)

Our defence corp has been surprisingly one of our stronger points this year (especially the LD):

16-17 defence corps:
Edler - Stecher
Hutton - Tanev
Tryamkin - Gudbranson
Sbisa - Biega


17-18 defence corps (w/out Juolevi):
same as 16-17


17-18 defence corps (w/ Juolevi in the Canucks roster + Sbisa picked by Vegas):
Edler - Tryamkin : Edler played his best hockey with us when he was paired with a LHS Christian Ehrhoff... maybe putting Tryamkin with him will allow Edler to focus more being a defensive lynchpin while Tryamkin can skate and join the rush a bit more like he's done a few times this year. Tryamkin's got a good shot that he seems to be able to tee off of a one-timer. I think we should try untapping that hidden offensive capability to see what we got since we got so many DFD (Tanev + Gudbranson + Juolevi)
Hutton - Tanev
Juolevi - Gudbranson
Pedan? - Biega

Minor League options:
Pedan / Subban
McEneney / RD2 (Chatfield?)

Prospects (LD / RD):
Juolevi / RD1
Brisebois / Neill
Candella / RD3
Olson / RD4

Most pressing needs a true #1 PMD (preferably RHS).


Comments:
As much we think the Canucks have many glaring needs... we need a C1 and PMD as a D1.... This sounds like most NHL teams that aren't in the playoffs.

Also, if Sedins are to remain, the next question is do you think Sedins can compete well against other elite NHL teams' 2nd or 3rd lines? Do you think they can keep their +/- up if they're getting 2nd/3rd line minutes? If you know the answer to that, then that'll resolve whether we should even consider re-signing them for the 17-18 season.

Headwinds ahead.

I think the Canucks are just a single top-6 forward away from being a solid playoff team.

Gaudette is having a pretty good NCAA season, but he looks like a 2nd/3rd line tweener, not some 1C dude
