Canucks prospects always "seem" like they have potential but they never seem to pan out.

Yup, Canucks aren't going to qualify him, so it'll make him a UFA.

CDC...lol...where all your prospects become a top 6 forward or top 4 d.

Still remember ppl questioning Gillis drafting Schroeder when we drafted Cody the year before. They were asking why draft 2 small centres?

Cause he was the "best" player available and Gillis always drafted the best player in that situation.

Fucken Gillis

Very interesting. Ben Kuzma of The Province speculates that Benning is gonna go for the 1st overall pick.

Pick Six may become the No. 1 pick.

Rumour has it that Leafs offered Kadri, Gardiner, and the 8th overall pick for the 1st.

Last time a 1st overall was traded.

Pens traded 3rd pick, 55th pick, and Samuelsson for the 1st, and 73rd from Florida.

It would be crazy if we get 1st overall and draft Reinhart.

Rumor going around is that Panthers want something like Tanev and #6 for #1, but Benning wants to ship them Garrison instead Tanev.

I know a lot of fans are horned out to get Reinhart if Canucks get the #1 pick, but I think Ekblad would be the better pick at #1. Yea I know the Canucks need a center to replace the eventual trade of Kesler, but that high in the draft, you take the best player. Bob McKenzie recently polled scouts and GMs at the combine and I think he pretty much all agreed Ekblad was the best player in this draft. He projects to be a stud #1 Dman, and the Canucks need that as much as they do a star forward. Plus Reinhart isn't projected to be on the same level as other #1 forward picks nor has shown the same in juniors as other #1 overall forwards like MacKinnon, Tavares, Stamkos, etc...

well if kesler is gonna be traded, i dont see us being competitive against hte likes of LA or CHI anytime soon.
might as well give schroeder a chance to make it or break it as a 2nd line centre. we have nobody with his playmaking skills in the centre spot in our prospect pool anyways.

Prob is that Ekblad might be another J Bou or E. Johnson. Solid D but not that elite stud #1 like doughty or weber or keith.

If we do trade Tanev and 6 for 1st, Ekblad replacing Tanev would be smarter choice.

found this on canucks army
Who Should Vancouver Draft? Spoiler: It's Sam Reinhart | CanucksArmy



So Reinhart has similar junior numbers to the likes of Tavares, Stamkos, Mackinnon

of course there are other factors as well
i keep coming across many stating that this is a weak draft overall as well. so looking at the top of the class, one should be in mind the relativity more than anything

By numbers maybe, but going by all scouts, GMs and analyst, the consensus is that this is a weak draft for top end forward talent. They all saw more elite level skill and projections from Stamkos, Tavares, Hall, etc... Reinhart should be a good player, just not on that next level. Only time will tell.

And then Senior Associate Head Coach.

Kings are just being greedy (and protecting themselves I guess) - they don't want other teams to get their hands on Stevens. If/when Sutter moves on to other things, they will have Stevens in the pipeline.

Rumors say Sutter will retire when his Kings contract expires (next year?) and Stevens will assume head coach?

NO Lucic? It's a good way to build his rep back with the city although he didnt do shit to begin with. I remember the first game here played he here with the Boston Bruins during pre-season... it was one of the loudest game ive been to, fans cheering loudly for him.

Where Willie Go?

As TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger tweeted Friday morning, there may be a 'change of heart' in Pittsburgh as he's hearing Willie Desjardins is no longer a slam dunk for the head coaching job following his meeting with the Penguins Thursday night.

Dreger adds that as of Thursday night, Desjardins was Pittsburgh's target but perhaps his interest in the Canucks' coaching job scuttled the Penguins' plan.
