Now look, I know what you are thinking. Who are you and why do you think you can just make your own draft rankings? Now that’s a great question and one I’m going to ignore and just get to my exclusive 2017 NHL DRAFT RANKINGS!
What have I learned through this long process of fixing the Vancouver Canucks? Well for one, this is going to take forever to complete. We are on the right track, and I could probably do this for 10 more parts and still not be in the playoffs.
In this final part, we go through the 2018 draft and the 2018 re-signing and free agency period and predict what the starting lineup may look like at the beginning of the 2018-2019 season.
Part Four! Today, we hit October and go over the opening night roster, what I would do during the trade deadline and what the roster would look like once the season is completed.
Read on to find out how this idiot will get one step closer to fixing the Vancouver Canucks.
This is a series about what would happen if the Canucks demoted Jim Benning, making him the head of the scouting department and gave me the GM job. Part One is –>HERE
There are a lot of sports fans who sit at home and watch their favourite team suck it up year after year and believe that if they were in charge, they could do a hell of a better job than
Jim Benning whoever is in charge. As somebody who is not at all qualified to become a General Manager of an NHL team (besides the hundreds of hours playing hockey video games), I’m going to work my way into fixing the Vancouver Canucks by making a series of decisions that will eventually lead to this team becoming a dynasty. Part One will include finding a new head coach, making decisions on the Expansion Draft and the NHL Entry Draft.
The 2016-2017 Victoria Royals didn’t exactly sneak their way into the playoffs, finishing 14 points ahead of the next placed Spokane Chiefs, but they did end up as the second Wildcard team in the Western Hockey League’s Western Conference, losing their last 7 games of the season to set up a first round matchup with the Everett Silvertips. We all know how that ended, with the longest overtime game in the history of the Canadian Hockey League. With that loss, which Victoria Royals played in their last game for the club?
The race for the Vezina Trophy was a lot like the one for the Selke: it was a one horse race. At least, if the 30 (is it 31 now?) NHL General Managers know anything about the position, there is one obvious winner. We’ll talk about him now and figure out who is going to be the first and second loser.
