The Blues are playing blue collar hockey right now with the entire team playing cohesively. Blackhawks are going down.

holy fuck

Trying to understand what's up with the Canucks 3rd round pick this draft almost broke my brain this morning.
For a rebuilding team, we could really use some more picks.

I'm guess he's going to have one year in the AHL then once Miler's contract is up it will be him and Markstrom for a 1/2 punch if everything goes good.

that's the plan...unless a team offers something too good to pass up for Miller over the draft
or he wants out

wouldn't be surprised if he wants out

Who on earth would offer anything for Miller at the draft?

I'm not confident that Markstrom is ready to be a true #1 yet either. I'd rather have them split the season so he can at least prepare.

thing is with miller he isnt getting any younger and why would he want to stay here when its a rebuild? Our best bet is if Anaheim gets beats by the preds and that ducks goaltending shits the bed...then I could see miller going to the ducks via trade and if I were benning u take what u can get for him!

just stating possibilities lol
highly doubt he'll get traded but stranger things have happened

Miller is gonna be an expensive buffer for Markstrom but I guess it can't be helped for now.

Good, I hope the Ducks lose out first round and trade for Miller at the draft.

Not exactly related but somewhat, have you noticed what it takes in the NFL to aquire a 1st or 2nd overall pick in the Draft? Two examples this year as both the 1st overall and 2nd overall picks have been moved.

First Overall Tennessee trades with the Rams
Rams Get 1st overall, & 6th Round (177th)
Tennessee gets 1st (15th) 2 Seconds (43th & 45th) 3rd (76th) and there 1st pick in 2017.

Today Eagles traded for the 1st Round 2nd overall pick.
Eagles get 2nd overall and 4th rounder 2017.
Browns get 1st Round (8th) 3rd Round (77th) 4th round (100th) 1st round 2017 & 2nd round 2018.

What would it take to make a deal to move up in the NHL draft? If you had 2nd pick and were offered say a deal similar to what the Browns got today to drop to 8th but also get a 3rd a 4th and a 1st & 2nd in future years would you take it?

Signing Demko is a game changer for this organization. Potentially Cory Schneider 2.0, but ten years younger. Once Miller hits the road after the 2016/2017 season (or earlier but I doubt that), a one-two punch of Markstrom and Demko sets this organization up very well in the coming years.

After the debacle of losing Luongo and Schneider in consecutive years, I was really worried that we were entering a new era of shitty goalies for Vancouver. Martin Brochu and Danny Sabourin anyone?

With a plethora of young forwards, it's time for JB to focus on improving the defense.

Report: Thatcher Demko agrees to entry-level contract with Canucks
Justin Cuthbert Apr 20, 2016 10:54 AM
Thatcher Demko has agreed to terms on an entry-level contract with the Vancouver Canucks, TSN is reporting via Bob McKenzie.

He's expected to officially sign later Wednesday afternoon.

The second-round draft selection spent three seasons at Boston College. He was nominated for the Hobey Baker Award in his final season, winning 27 games - earning a shutout in 10 of those starts - and stopping pucks at a .935 rate as a junior starter.

The San Diego, Calif., native towers at 6-foot-4, and has elite athleticism for the position.
