Canucks got me anti-hype. Still love my team, but our defense has been swiss cheese. Sbisa is looking like a pretty awful pickup. He handles the puck like a live grenade which is painful to watch. Our most NHL ready defense prospect is Corrado, but he still needs more seasoning in the AHL.
Although, as far as our prospects, things are better than they've been in a long time.
Our minor league team is doing wonderfully though. It's great to see them have success. The Utica fans are excellent, and the Comets seem like an excellent team to play for. We have three Canuck first round picks on the team: Jensen, Shinkaruk, and Gaunce. They all have 3 points in the first 7 games, but according to the Utica fans, are improving every game. Goalie prospect Markstrom has a like 0.991 save percentage and 0.25 gaa.
We also have 9th overall pick Bo Horvat down there on a conditioning stint, but he's not AHL elligible so he must come back to Vancouver or be returned to the London Knights after 2 week.
Our prospects Cole Cassels, Jordan Subban, Jake Virtanen, and Jared McCann are all doing awesome in Jr. right now too.
6'8" defenseman prospect Tryamkin is doing decently in the KHL, and offensive defenseman Gustav Forsling is logging big minutes in the SHL.
It's great to finally have some promising looking young players. Vancouver's drafting was a black hole for a long time.
That was me in BK on Atlantic. (☞ﾟヮﾟ)☞ ☜(ﾟヮﾟ☜) BasedSig
