It would have been nice if the Hughes brothers could have been a thing in Vancouver, but I think we’ve all accepted that it isn’t happening.
The Toronto Maple Leafs‘ quest to rid themselves of bad contracts has been well documented for months now, but with the NHL draft soon approaching, rumours around Patrick Marleau and Nikita Zaitsev are ramping up.
Jim Benning and Co. are rolling into the summer with a very favourable salary cap situation. While the team has some internal housekeeping to do, most importantly, a long-term deal for Brock Boeser, the front office has a lot of flexibility to improve the team.
Immediately after the Canucks selected Quinn Hughes with the sixth-overall pick in the 2018 draft, the fantasizing about the Hughes Boys being the new set of superstar brothers in Vancouver began. It would have been perfect. With Daniel and Henrik Sedin retiring last year, Quinn and Jack Hughes could have taken the throne.
When the Ottawa 67’s acquired Michael DiPietro prior to the OHL trade deadline, they believed they found the final piece of a Memorial Cup puzzle. The decision to go all-in on one of the NHL’s top goaltending prospects is paying off.
The Canucks pulled the trigger on a couple moves yesterday at the trade deadline, though neither would categorize them as buyers or sellers. They made a minor-league swap with the Sharks involving Jonathan Dahlen and Linus Karlsson and they made a change-of-scenery deal with the Penguins shipping out Erik Gudbranson for Tanner Pearson.

After scoring 29 goals and 55 points in 62 games, good for second place in Calder Trophy voting, Brock Boeser isn’t far away from getting paid.
It’ll be the Canucks 50th anniversary in 2019-20 and, to celebrate, the organization allowed fans to decide which jersey they should introduce as a throwback to be worn on select nights. They had three options — the Halloween V jersey, the flying skate, and the early 2000s Orca jersey — to choose from. The flying…
The Canucks wrapped up their 2018 NHL draft by selecting winger Artyom Manukyan with the No. 186 pick and goaltender Matthew Thiessen with the No. 192 pick.
We’ve reached the ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ part of the draft. With their fourth pick in the 2018 draft, the Canucks have selected flashy, offensive defenceman Toni Utunen from Tappara of the Finnish Elite League. Utunen captained Finland to a gold medal at last year’s U-18 World Juniors.
With their third pick in the 2018 NHL draft, the Canucks have selected forward Tyler Madden from the United States Hockey League. The son of former NHLer John Madden will play for Northeastern University in the NCAA next season.
With their second pick in the 2018 NHL draft, the Vancouver Canucks selected righty defenceman Jett Woo from the Moose Jaw Warriors. Woo joins Quinn Hughes, Vancouver’s first-round pick yesterday, as another interesting addition to the Canucks’ pipeline of blueliners.
