The Future is Now

Cody Hodgson was just named OHL Player of the year. The other day someone asked, “If given the opportunity, would you trade Hodgson for the first round pick in the 2009 draft?” (Or work a trade that included Hodgson for the first round pick) As speculation goes there’s a snowballs chance in hell, or Patrick Stefan’s chance at scoring on an empty net breakaway, that John Tavares will not go first overall in the 2009 draft. If it’s not him, it will be Victor Hedman. Tavares amongst the class of 2009 is the standout. There’s likely no one that will...

Canucks annual end-of-season awards

At tonight’s game against the LA Kings – the Canucks’ last home game in the regular season – the team is handing out their annual end-of-season awards. Here are my personal picks: Cyclone Taylor Trophy (presented to the Most Valuable Player) Roberto Luongo There are a lot of Canucks who have been critical to the team’s success this season.

However, the fact is that the Canucks would not be in the position they...
