Tanev is better than Barrie; not sure why we make that trade.

Barrie's ability to the first pass would be awesome to have.

I would be ok with that trade, I'm still not sold on Virtanen. This is going to be a big year for him which hopefully he won't have a soft-more slump.

Same with murd0c with not being sold on Virtanen. I still think he wasn't the BPA and the Canucks only picked him cause he's a local kid that would be good for PR.

I wasn't a fan of the Virtanen pick, but Virtanen wasn't an off-the-board pick. The consensus was that it was a choice between him, Nylander, and Ehlers and there's no doubt that Virtanen has the best physical tools of that bunch, but the worst hockey sense. He wasn't going to make it out of the top 10 for sure.

Trading a 20-year-old Virtanen (plus) for a 25-year-old Barrie would, IMO, be a mistake. We can't keep trading rookies for older players and expect to get anywhere. It's a classic sell low, buy high scenario.

I like Virtanen. He's got size, good skating ability, speed and not afraid to throw his weight around or drop the mitts. Obviously a Dim Jim type player so i don't see them even letting him go. Ill give him another season or two to sell me.

N Ehlers, W Nylander , and D Larkin were all picked after Jake, and I guess they seem to have more skill/scoring ability. I think Nylander would be my pick , but it's easy to say now that we know how they're turning out lol

Virtanen was the right pick (at the time) and is more suited for the West compared to Ehlers or Nylander. It's still too early to write him off IMO

Considering Nylander and Ehlers get top 6/more minutes I'd like to see how they would do if their linemates were scrubs like Dorsett, Cracknell and Granlund

my choice for that year was Ehlers, Virtanen then Larkin
still too early to write him off but if he doesn't take a noticeable step forward this season he will definitely be wading into that bust territory.

And doesn't players like virtanen takes longer to develop?

Only issue I have is he's local and chances of him doing stupid shit locally with his friends are a lot higher.

I think on the Maple Leafs, he was looked upon as a leader, something he might not have been comfortable with. On the Penguins, he had less responsibility so he could just focus on playing hockey.

oh yeah, don't get me wrong, i'm glad he's gone

but another example of a wasted pick...2 completely forgettable seasons
hopefully that pick (Roland McKeown) doesn't come back to bite us
(mobile, 6'2 Right Shot Dman drafted with that pick)
