According to Elliotte Friedman, the Canucks may be interested in moving on from Nikolay Goldobin. It makes perfect sense, really. When you’re a young, rebuilding team and you have a chance to trade a 23-year-old with 23 points in 41 games, you obviously have to take it.
Would you trade Nikolay Goldobin? If so, why? What would you like to see the team get in return?
Last week I asked: Aside from Quinn Hughes, who are you most excited to see in action at the WJC and why?
The Voice In the Dark:
Outside of Quinn, I’m excited to see Canucks prospects Tyler Madden and Mike DiPietro. While it’s highly unlikely the nux end up getting Jack Hughes, I’m also stoked to see the Hughes brothers playing together and dream of what could be 😀
Gino’s 3rd Cousin:
Jack Hughes – want to see his chemistry w Quinn. Cody Glass – I wanted the Canucks to draft him at #5 (pretty happy they didn’t). DiPietro – I like the way he battles.
DiPietro vs. Real Competition. The Danish game was a joke and it was embarassing to watch Canadian fans cheering so much for a game that was lopsided and over as soon as it was announced on the schedule. Drop Denmark and Kazakhstan and make the WJC an 8 team dogfight where every team (except maybe the Swiss) a threat to win.
