Ashton Sautner enters the conversation in our consensus rankings of the organization's prospect pool as the 19th best among them.
Though Sautner ranked as highly as 14th in our mid-season rankings, the bevvy of prospects added through the draft and continued development of established members have necessitated a slight drop.
I'd caution against reacting too strongly to Sautner's slight step backwards. Sautner genuinely had a good season as a rookie in the AHL.

It's the dead of the summer, which means it's the time of year that we explore topics that we typically don't get to in the rush of the season. The Oilers and Jets announced their Heritage Classic today (including a beautiful new/old Winnipeg uniform) and it made me think about rivalries and what they mean to a franchise. Who are the Canucks rivals? They have changed a lot over the years, with teams like Calgary staying as constants. In recent memory the Blackhawks and Bruins were big rivals as well. Where do they stand now? Our writers discuss.

Happy August, Canucks fans! It's almost time to start worrying about training camp invitees and pre-season rosters, but for now we've still got time to focus on off-season news such as Bo Horvat's pastoral childhood and Emerson Etem's Britney Spears impression.
