yeah...i dunno so much about misunderstanding since the question was pretty clear but that was a pretty shitty first impression lol
Virtanen was clearly pumped.
McCann who sounded like it was the end of the world getting drafted by the Canucks
even had the hat low so he can hide the tears LOL
but i think it was probably nerves, he was clutching that mic pretty hard
Jared McCann TSN interview after being drafted 24…:
Was hoping for Draisaitl but glad we took Virtanen over Nylander. I'm curious how Ritchie is gonna pan out. Damn this patience thing!
Jake looks like a no-nonsense in your face talented winger. He's projected to be the best goal scorer in the entire draft. It's also important mentally that he really, really wants to play for the Canucks.
I'm sad about Garrison, he wasn't utilized properly by Torts and we dumped him after he took a pay-cut to come back home. Thought we might be able to see the Florida "powerplay bomber" Garrison under Willie. I liked him the most out of all our blueliners. At $4.6 he had a decent cap hit, there are much worse out there.
You know, maybe a different way of thinking about it, but I have absolutely no problem with how he answered that question. If he's an ultra-competitive guy, he's gonna be wanting to get picked as high up as possible and if he expected to go like 15th or something then being picked at 24 would be really disappointing and not everyone can put their competitive juices aside and be like "Oh I'm so happy!" it was right after it happened and he was probably stewing and being honest when he said he didn't think there was any chance he'd fall as low as Vancouver's next drafting spot... nothing personal against the Canucks, just he's mad because he thought he's better than a lot of other guys that got chosen and it's burning him up inside.
