Yeah I dont want to get too high on canucks drafting in top 3 because well you know its the canucks right nothing good ever happens to us...well things have been changing for the better we did sign Demko, Stetcher signed as well could possibly sign Drake things are looking up abit.

Thing is with JB he makes terrible trades/asset managment but one thing that fucker does well in is draft! So if we are out of the top 3 its pretty much a crap shoot but will still be confident on who JB picks...just hope he doesnt go off the board and pick some rando lol

Says he does well in draft and then the next sentence says something completely contradictory.

Ahh the St.Louis Blues, the mirror image of the Canucks when it comes to finding ways to disappoint fans over the course of 40+ years. I almost have some funny feeling they'll choke again but I hope not.

Goes along with one of my sayings in life "Expect the worst and be pleasantly surprised when something good happens" lol

Depending on what happens in the off-season signing wise, I'm sure this won't be the last time canucks contended for the first over all pick within the next couple years. Hopefully we don't get to many bandaid players or else we will find ourself picking mid pack and that will make the rebuild that much harder, unless we get some good/lucky draft choices.

if Vegas gets approved for a hockey team starting in 2017...would they automatically get the best odds to land 1st overall that year?

Get bandaid players and trade them before the deadline like TO did this year.

I don't get why a rebuild/retool/re-_____ has to be the way where you sign bandaid players and trade them for picks or be a the very bottom for a high pick ( which it's nice if we do land a good player).

If the sharks end up winning the series against LA, I think they were once a team who were going to rebuild as well. But they were able to surround their older players in Marleau and Thorton with younger players now. I can easily see the same with the Canucks where we can build around the older players with the Sedins.

I don't know man. Can't see that working out for us like it did for the sharks. Sedins won't be able to produce like they have been for much longer imo.

Wouldn't give Burns all the credit with Pavelski, Couture, Hertl etc around but will agree that you need a beast dman if you want a good chance at the Cup.

RIP Luc Bourdon

The Sedins would be very effective if they weren't our only consistent source of offense.

Also, drafting is only half the battle. Development arguably is just as, if not even more, important.

^ exactly, the reason why the Red Wings have been good year after year is due to the player development which is one of the best in the NHL
