I've got a feeling that the name we will hear from Bennings mouth up on the podium will be - William Nylander. I think the Nucks will get Ottawas 10th pick via Kesler trade and that we will either draft Perlini or Fleury. Don't think Virtanen or Fatso Ritchie will be there at 10 but with the Canucks brass love for Virtanen they may make a move up from the 10th pick to get him

The Nucks want both Nylander and Virtanen


I hope you're correct RD as those two would fit this team like a glove!

I can't think of too many centers with a Nylander-sized frame playing 1C in the NHL, let alone the Western Conference.

The kid has mad skills though so I think he will make the league, albeit as a RW, not a center.

He has more top-line potential than a Ritchie or even a Virtanen IMO, but he also has a higher chance of busting out.

Gonna be a really interesting draft.

Schroeder is a good example why picking a small skilled forward could be very risky. In the East, he might be fine but would have a hard time surviving in the West.

Yeah. From what I've seen though, Nylander is considerably more skilled than Schroeder was in his draft year. I fucking hated that pick.

Sportsnet has the Canucks landing Dal Colle at 6. Not bad!

Although I think they're rankings are a bit questionable, as they have the top 5 as:

5. Reinhart
4. Draisaitl
3. Ritchie
2. Ekblad
1. Bennett

do not want dal colle.

apparently he was the runaway winner in worst interview category when put through the interviewing process at the combine but that is not why i dont want him, he's too gangly with his scrawny chicken legs. He will get busted up in the NHL pretty quickly. Predict a bust in Dal Colle

i could see Edmonton taking Ritchie

Well if that doesn't prove how all over the map the rankings are I don't know what does. I really think anything goes this year. Everything I've heard about Bennett, save the non-push-up, sounds fantastic. He mentored under Gilmour, and molds his game after him. Never a bad idea. They have Virtanen at 7, I'd bet JB snaps him up over Dal Cole if we're picking 6th.

Also, if Reinhart does drop that could open up the doors for us to trade up (on the cheap) if a team feels their player would still be available (ie swap for a draft pick, or roster player).

If Reinhart makes it to 5 no way the Islanders not select him with his brother there, I don't care how many centres they have

Yeah still think the Canucks take Virtanen even if dal Colle is there. Would not surprise me seeing Dal Colle drop a fair bit

Buffalo will not take Ekblad. After picking Zadarov and Ritsolainen in the first round last year, who are better than Ekblad, not too mention already having Myers, it would be very redundant if they picked another D man like Ekblad. They need forwards

Yeah that's a bad mock draft, one of the worst. I don't think grocery cart Skyo has made mock drafts this bad

If somehow The Son Of Paul drops one spot further to 6th and the Canucks draft him for no additional cost, I will voluntarily leave this forum. :mex:

So that would mean one handle less of you?

Speaking of brothers, if Van does land Sam would they go all in & make a move for Griffin? Perhaps Garth would like RK behind Tavares?
