Zach Yuen. The jets traded up to get him at 119. Vancouver picked at 120. So I guess the Jets thought Vancouver would pick him up.
Too bad we couldn't draft him.

About the twin brother, I believe Gillis will draft him next year or sign him as a free agent when he becomes a FA.

A Recap of the Canucks Draft Day 2

The most interesting prospect IMO, was David Honzik:

Quote:
General manger Mike Gillis used the 71st pick to nab goaltender David Honzik, a 6-foot-2, 209-pound product of Tabor, Czech Republic, who spent last season with the QMJHL’s Victoriaville Tigers.

Honzik played in the HC Energie Karlovy Vary system prior to coming to Canada, but in just one season in the QMJHL he’s already drawing comparisons to a young Pekka Rinne of the Nashville Predators.

Backed by stellar play from Honzik, the Tigers were able to pull off an unlikely sweep of the Acadie-Bathurst Titan in the opening round of the 2011 QMJHL Playoffs, before losing to the Saint John Sea Dogs, the eventual champions, in the second round.

As Sportsnet columnist Patrick King discovered in talking with Tigers head coach Yanick Jean for his latest CHL column, once Honzik found consistency to his game, the Pekka comparisons began.

"A lot of scouts made the comparisons between both of them and I think it's a true fact," Jean told King. "(Rinne) was so good. I think Honzik was the same.

"The first half he had lots of ups and downs like any 17-year-old goalie. You would never know what you're going to get before a game. Second half, he had streaks that you would say, 'Oh, my god. He won five or six in a row.'

"From the end of February to the end of the playoffs, he was just outstanding. The last six or eight games he played for us during the year he was phenomenal."

MG should have drafted Yuen because of the market in Vancouver, imagine the jersey sales...

He looked kinda pissed when his dad brought up that he used to figure skate

Yuen at 6ft 205lbs and MOBILE make him a pretty good pick

He said PLAYER not PERSON.

It's stupid because you can only get ONE autograph from MayRay, Manny OR Nash

You can't get all 3 autographs, only 1.

Yeah, and you would see more Asians and Chinese media get interested in the Canucks.

The Jensen draft pick addresses the weakest position in the Canucks: power forward. At 6 foot 2, 187 pounds, this guy has the potential to be the power forward that is lacking in our top 6. If he bulks up to 200 pounds, we got a damaging Dane to play for us.

But I agree...they have passed up on local talent in the past. Pisses me off more when they pass on Vancouver Giants players

So I guess no one would have been congratulation either team.
that's not what i was talking about lol.

Like geez, Lucic ONLY played right here in their own back yard where you see him play so damn often. How they overlooked him is beyond me.
