Canucks Should Trade for Toffoli

The Vancouver Canucks are scoring more than last season, but most of the points are being generated by the top line of Brock Boeser, Elias Pettersson, and J.T. Miller. In fact, 33 percent of the offence has been generated by the Lotto Line. Don’t get me wrong, Bo Horvat and Tanner Pearson have made their […] The post Canucks Should Trade for Toffoli appeared first on The Hockey Writers.

Canucks prospect Tyler Madden keeps racking up goals in his sophomore season with Northeastern

Canucks prospect Tyler Madden keeps racking up goals in his sophomore season with Northeastern

When it comes to drafting out of the USHL, Canucks fans have learned to have faith in Judd Brackett. Brock Boeser was a steal at 23rd overall; the only player with more goals per game than Boeser from the 2015 draft is Connor McDavid. Likewise, Adam Gaudette wouldn’t make it to the fifth round, where the Canucks picked him, in a 2015 redraft. Then there are the prospects that have yet to reach the NHL, but have potential, with Tyler Madden a prime example. Madden has had an unreal start to his sophomore season with Northeastern University, scoring 12 goals and 22 points in 16 games.

Elias Pettersson has the most effective slap shot in the NHL: shooting percentages by shot type

Elias Pettersson has the most effective slap shot in the NHL: shooting percentages by shot type

Certain NHL players are described as having an elite shot, but one of the issues with that statement is that it’s a little too vague. There are multiple techniques to shooting the puck in hockey, and even some of the best snipers in the game are far better at certain types of shots than they are at others. Take Brock Boeser for example. Boeser has a wicked wrist shot, arguably one of the best in the NHL. It’s how he destroyed all comers in the accuracy competition at the 2018 NHL All-Star Game and a big reason why he has 69 goals through his first 166 games in the NHL. If he had been...

Brock Boeser is still sniping goals, but his well-rounded game is leading the way

Brock Boeser is still sniping goals, but his well-rounded game is leading the way

Brock Boeser took the pass from Elias Pettersson down the left wing. The Winnipeg Jets defenceman, Neal Pionk, closed quickly, knowing that if Boeser got room to shoot, he could pick a corner and give the Vancouver Canucks the lead. Then Boeser did something unexpected: he lowered his shoulder into Pionk, knocking the defenceman off stride. Boeser spun off the contact with the puck, then cut back, sending Pionk flailing wildly past him. That opened up a passing lane to Troy Stecher, who was trailing the play. A moment later, Stecher sent a back door pass to J.T. Miller for a tap-in...

Canucks continue to rotate Bo Horvat’s linemates, hoping to find 5-on-5 scoring

Canucks continue to rotate Bo Horvat’s linemates, hoping to find 5-on-5 scoring

From one perspective, Bo Horvat is having an excellent season. He’s fourth on the team in scoring with six goals and 14 points in 18 games, putting him on-pace for 27 goals and 64 points, which would match or best his career highs from last season. Even if you look at his underlying numbers at 5-on-5, Horvat is excelling. His corsi percentage is the highest its ever been at 54.7%, which is right behind the top line of J.T. Miller, Elias Pettersson, and Brock Boeser among Canucks forwards. There’s just one problem: Horvat isn’t scoring at even-strength.

IWTG: Brock Boeser snipes one, but Mackenzie Blackwood stops the rest as Devils quash the Canucks

IWTG: Brock Boeser snipes one, but Mackenzie Blackwood stops the rest as Devils quash the Canucks

The first meeting between Quinn and Jack Hughes was a little underwhelming. While it did boast a big moment for the Hughes’ brothers — Jack’s first career NHL goal — it lacked a little in the entertainment department. Jack’s was the only goal of the game and the two teams combined for just 49 shots, the fewest shots in a Canucks game this season. Heck, the Canucks had 49 shots by themselves a few games later against the Los Angeles Kings. So, would the sequel offer a little more entertainment value? Would it land among the all-time great sequels — Hughes Trek II: The Wrath of...
