Being named Captain doesn't mean shit...You're a leader naturally, not because you are named one...If a guy IS trying to be a leader because he's been named Captain, it's obviously fake and guys don't buy it...Just because Kesler isn't named captain, doesn't mean he isn't just as vocal or as much of a leader than if he WAS given a 'C' on his jersey...

Regardless, these are professional athletes, and it shouldn't take someone else to get them fired up to play hockey...

This hasn't been discussed too much here, but who would you guys like the Canucks to draft this year? Currently, we have all our picks aside from a 2nd rounder. Gillis did say he would try and get some more picks for this years deep draft, so hopefully he can add a 2nd. At this point, I would be okay with the rumoured two 2nd rounders for Lu, freeing up cap space and helping us restock the prospect cupboard.

Cheering for Detroit to win the series against Chicago, because if they do, we'll get the 23 overall pick. If they lose, we get 24. Players I would be interested in, assuming they're available:

Adam Erne - QMJHL, RW, 6"1, 198lbs. Goes to the dirty areas, can score goals and has good offensive smarts. 68 GP, 28/44/72.

Curtis Lazar - WHL, C/RW 6"0 190lbs. Great skill set on this kid, great release, seems like a character guy, local kid. 72 GP, 38/23/61.

Kerby Rychel - OHL, LW 6"1 200lbs. Great shot, plays fairly physical, fairly good skater. 68 GP, 40/47/87.

Frederik Gauthier - QMJHL, C 6"5 210lbs. 2 way player, great skater, can contribute offensively. 62 GP, 22/38/60.

Anthony Mantha - QMJHL, RW 6"4, 201lbs. Elite offensive player, has a very high skill set but there are questions about his compete level. 67 GP, 50/39/89.

Josh Morrissey - WHL, D 6"0 185lbs. Smooth skating offensive d-man. High-risk/high reward. 70GP, 15/32/47.

Canucks always go outside of predictions, waste of time mock drafting. What position are we drafting since we got knock out first in the playoffs?

We should get Nikita Zadorov

23rd if Detroit wins, 24th if they lose.

I'd love Zadorov but just don't see him falling to us. Our last couple drafts have been pretty good, usually the BPA. Gaunce was expected to go higher than he did, as was Jensen for much of the year.

How does the drafting position work? We got knocked out first round shound't we be drafting 16/17/18? Or is it base on regular season standing?

Drafting depends on what sort of direction you envision the team taking for the future. Hence, the real question is - Where does Gillis wanna go from here? Are we changing the makeup of the team or are we staying true to the style of the late? Teams function best when they function as a cohesive unit where each and every one of their attributes complements the rest i.e: Picture the Sedins in Boston..Their style and character doesn't fit into that big gritty style of the Bruins.
If anything the Canucks need to develop a "threat". Something that will define their team and strike fear in opponents. As of today, there is no "threat" element within the Canucks.

Kesler can't have anymore injuries, two way center takes control of games nowadays. Datsyuk, bergeron, toews are still in the playoffs. I dont want to trade Kesler but if he is still injury prone i think the best move will be doing what philly did for mike richards.

According to TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger, Glen Gulutzan is among the stable of coaches that the Vancouver Canucks have interest in.

Gulutzan was fired on May 14 after two seasons as head coach of the Dallas Stars. He compiled a record of 64-57-9 in his first NHL head coaching job, and his team missed the playoffs in both of his seasons behind the bench.

The Canucks have been looking for a new bench boss since dismissing Alain Vigneault after being swept in the first round by the San Jose Sharks.

Interestingly, reports surfaced last week that the Stars may have interest in Vigneault for their coaching position.

After the hiring of Patrick Roy by the Avalanche last week, the Stars and Canucks are the only two clubs that currently have head coaching vacancies.

At the conclusion of the regular season, the 14 NHL teams not qualifying for the playoffs are entered in a weighted lottery to determine the initial draft picks in the first round, seeded according to regular season standing. The 30th-place team has the best chance of winning the lottery while the 29th-place team has a 18.8% chance of winning, with odds diminishing to a 0.5% chance for the 17th-place team. A single selection from the lottery pool is made, with the winning team improving its draft position to the number 1 spot, and no team dropping more than one place.

The remaining order is determined by the Stanley Cup playoff results.[8] Whichever team wins the Stanley Cup is awarded the 30th and last pick, while the runner-up is given the 29th pick. The teams eliminated in the conference finals are awarded the 28th and 27th picks, with the 28th pick going to the team with the better regular season record. Remaining division winners are then sorted by points, then the rest of the field are ranked next, filling in the 26th through 15th picks. In both cases, better records result in later picks.[6]

Anyone watch the Mem Cup final? Wow, MacKinnon is the real deal. 5 points this game. If I were the GM of Colorado, it would be very tempting to take MacKinnon over Jones.

duchene and landeskog upfront already
yes MacKinnon would be tempting....

backend isnt so solid IIRC. Erik Jonhson hasnt emerged as a superstar....maybe not yet
so jones looks good here

could we draw some parallelisms to the Stamkos and Doughty draft year?

but then again, talent before need right? a good GM should be able to negotiate need
(lol look at edmonton)

Can't wait for game 6. By far the best in the 2nd round.

The emotions of game 4 in a nice 3minute package

The entire Red Wing's team have stepped up to a whole new level with better balance than the Blackhawks all 4 lines... especially with justin abelkader.

NHL Starting Goalies and Line Combinations | DailyFaceoff.com - Handzus as hawks 2nd line C

NHL Starting Goalies and Line Combinations | DailyFaceoff.com - with so many injuries wings are still the better coached team, that's why 3-2 series

JS is legit. I bet management is going to mistreat him and trade him away... one of our only prospect who can be a game breaker.

Hopefully the new coach will be able to better utilize our players to their specified roles.

Schroeder is an offensive player. Give him the time and linemates to benefit at that aspect

The only good prospect Gillis traded away was defensive liability in Hodgson. He wanted to leave too.

would like to see if he could play the wing, his frame makes him a little bit small for the 3rd or 4th center role.
