Oh fuck that sucks! Statistically the most likely but what an absolute gut punch to not end up in the top 3. This franchise really needed more than it got tonight. So fucking typical!

The biggest more glaring tankers win 1st overall. The leaves just got rewarded big time. Better Matthews stays on the east I guess.

What are the odds Edmonton forgoes a forward and pick a Dman?

Fuck this shit, Shanahan the ownership group gave us permission to do the rebuild the right way. In other words the right way to rebuild is to deliberately tank.

I guess in the end you cannot beat expected value :lol:

Toronto - Matthews
Winnipeg - Laine (the new finnish flash!)
Columbus - Puljujarvi
Edmonton - I hope they pick ChyChurn

At least we will get either Tkachuk or Dubois

I would say this is unbelievable, but it's entirely expected. You just learn to be numb as a Canucks fan...

Who do we have to sacrifice to appease the hockey gods?
Try to focus on 1 year from now...

Well, I said from day one that #1 would go to the center of the universe...because shanahan, and center of universe. I firmly believe there is a guiding hand behind the scenes to help the odds. And we get the old familiar shaft....sigh.....should be used to it by now.....FCUK,,,,,,,,

The shittiest spot to pick of all the possibilities.

Barring the extremely bizarre, Tkachuk will be gone in addition to the top 3 which leaves Benning with nothing worth the misery we had to put up with this season.

I say fuck no to that soft frog Dubois; fuck no to girly Swede Nylander; fuck no to bonehead Chychrun; or Juolevi the pipe-cleaner in skates.

Maybe Benning can peddle this shite pick for a stud defenceman or something because the club got screwed - again.

I just can't get too excited about whoever the Canucks draft outside of the top 3. I know it's always a crapshoot and we should get a heck of a player in that spot but it really feels like we're missing out on the only generational players in this draft. I didn't care if we got the first pick, but I desperately wanted one of those 3. Everything else feels like a shitty consolation prize. Oh well only time will tell I guess.

#6 is LOL.

Iain Mac suggests Oil not picking a C, so they take Tkachuk.
No. 4 EDM not likely to take another C. Dubois could be outstanding fit for VAN as Henrik's successor as 1st C.

Enter Dubois, who brings a mixture of size and skill any team would covet. At 6’3 and just over 200 pounds, Dubois already has NHL-ready size.

Of course, size alone isn’t enough to get a player drafted, which is why Lawson Crouse dropped out of last year’s top ten. Dubois has much more to his game than size, however. He brings a wicked wrist-shot, which he used to devastating effect in the QMJHL this year, scoring 42 goals and a whopping 99 points for Cape Breton.
Now, if we’re talking a pure best-player-available strategy at the draft, Dubois makes a pretty compelling case. His 99 points are a huge feat for a 17-year-old (and Dubois is only 17, as he won’t turn 18 until… hey, June 24! What a birthday present that’d be for the kid!) his size is imposing, and he had a strong showing at the CHL Top Prospects Game in January.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

There is a lesson in all f this. First, we will get a good pick, potentially a D man based upon Benning's latest comments of targeting a D in the 5-6 slot. So unless Edmonton passes up on a forward and takes a D, or trades the pick for a top four D, we will be OK.

BUT THE LESSON IS, if you are going to tank you have to go all in. For me I've had enough of the let's tank for a good pick. I want to win, I want to make the playoffs every year. No more hoping to finish as low as possible to get the highest pick we can.

Burrows job just may be safe!

Yeah Edmonton probably trades their pick.

Either way we are probably taking tkachuk/dubois.

And they will play another year junior.

Toronto takes Matthews, meaning we get Stamkos, that's the deal. ha
