    Both are great players and I wish the Canucks could have somehow gotten a second first rounder to nab one of them.

    Why he fell is a mystery to me but we need to make up for Benning reaching for Jake Virtanen and Olli Juolevi.

    VAN could have swapped with the AVs for a 1st next year in a package for Barrie. Instead the pick went to TB - JT Miller. So the opportunity was available, but offered a rumoured underwhelming Virtanen + Conditional 2020 1st. Podkolzin is expected to be a very good player when he eventually arrives, you should be pleased with the pick.

    Pod, Petterson, Horvat and Boeser is a pretty sweet forward core either way. Alot of variation there in their styles which should make them very versatile and mesh well.

    sure he was over the next 2 forwards picked who had much better skillsets but had "size" concerns.

    Jake had a good goal total but for a guy his size his playoffs was meh and his overall hockey IQ just has never been there.

    I'm not sure what the offer was that the Avs were looking for Barrie from the Canucks.

    I heard they offered Virtanen and or Tanev plus some kind of draft pick but who knows.

    I'm sure if the Avs 16th and Barrie were being offered to the Canucks it would have been too steep for them.

    Sure it's a decent core but the 2 previous drafts before Horvat turned out Hutton and Guance and that was it.

    There also won't be another first rounder either next year or in 21 due to the JT Miller overpayment.

    This is why Benning made some odd moves.

    Barrie and the 16th were both available. AVs likely targeting Horvat, so other details could have been considered including variations of picks and prospects. Basing on the AVs trade for Kadri, (similar player) AVs could have packaged: Barrie & 2019-16 (Newhook) = Horvat.

    VAN could have:
    • Kept their 2020-1st & 2019-3rd picks;
    • Paid Barrie instead of overpaying Myers;
    • Solved need for RHD;
    • Barrie as a DMan vs Miller have similar scoring;
    • Drafted Newhook to replace Horvat;
    • TB would take less for Miller due to Cap issues; or
    • Sign the surplus UFA Forwards.
    AVs solve their 2C and VAN adds Barrie + Newhook.

    With Kadri in the fold now, one would hope they'd be less tempted to rush him.

    Wasnt a reach. He was projected to go 5-10. Sure in hindsight when you look back, but he was in the same tier as Nylander and Ehlers

    Newhook has blazing speed with good stick handling. A comparable would be Duchene.

    Canucks are not dealing Horvat. Period.

    Didn’t believe he ever was...VAN and COL went elsewhere to fill their needs. I’m very happy for COL with the addition of Kadri and keeping their pick/Newhook.

    Yup, I would absolutely love Barrie and if he signs here after next year (at a quasi-reasonable rate) I will be over the moon. But Colorado did well for themselves there.

    Barrie wants $8M+ @ 8 years.

    Salary demands is about right, too high for the AVs with replacements available. I can see the Leafs keeping him due to lack of RHD.
