If only it was that simple, you just know the NHL would screw us in that lottery. We got lucky with Pettersson, the NHL will never forgive us for making them look stupid in that draft.
I bet the NHL is thrilled that Petterson went to Vancouver. He's single-handedly making the Canucks watchable again. The NHL wants a credible Vancouver team, especially with Seattle coming online. Gotta figure that will be a heavily-promoted rivalry (the "Salish Sea Showdown"). Pettersson will be a huge piece of that.
You mean the Seattle-San Jose-LA Coastal rivalry that the NHL will be promoting?
Nope. The Seattle- San Jose - Anaheim - LA rivalry. :P

:wow: further to that Juolevi will top out at around 215 in 2-3 years so will be quite a bit bigger than the average nhl player
I've had major knee surgery, trust me he's 215lbs RIGHT NOW! :wow:

Also, it's very reasonable to assume management looked at the bare cupboards and lack at every position and waivered from BPA. With JV and Brock already in the system, do you grab another winger or try to fill up in much more dire positions like centers and defencemen with your 1st round pick?
This may be true but, at the time, JB indicated that he thought Juolevi was BPA - I remember this because I was pretty thrown off at first but thought that if JB said Juolevi was BPA, there must have been something I was missing. Now he may not have been telling the truth when he said that but his stated position was different than what you are hypothesizing.
Well, I guess people might lie sometimes, especially those in upper management positions in the NHL :wink:

How many GMs don't justify their picks immediately after a draft? Or even those in the media? They all throw out a bunch of superlatives and say this guy is exactly what this franchise needs, we're happy he was still on board, blah blah blah...

As a fan, you just hope most of your prospects turn out to be productive NHLers and are able to play X number of games... despite the stats that say percentage-wise, very few of the picks in each draft will ever turn out this way.
Try to focus on THIS year...

Destroyed my ACL playing football many many moons ago.

Reached close to 230 before I was able to work out again.

I've got the massive train-tracks scar to prove it.

It’s scary that a guy can fuck up his knee being the punter or a long snapper.

Cornerback. I know you'd never suspect it Blob, but I had a mean streak and it served me well.

Doc when you and your fellow Clark park maniacs all packed into the dodge charger and cruised downtown to terrorize the innocents with Foghat 8-trank cranked what was the standard route of the trail of horrors? Down Clarke to Terminal, Terminal down to Main, Main down to Hastings, was it at Hastings where they disorderly mayhem started?

Soooo....
Was just thinking about the Canucks needs at LW and RD and if the Canucks can expect any help with their first round pick in the coming draft.

And I’ve concluded this draft sucks for filling the Canucks biggest needs.

Here is the latest ranking from SN:
https://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/juniors ... -february/

There are no right side defensemen ranked in the top 16, all the D shoot left.
There is only one left winger ranked in the top 16:
8. Matthew Boldy, LW, USNTDP, 6-foot-1, 187 pounds: Super skilled, not quite at his best at the U18 Five Nations, but he’s built a solid resume all season long based on an amazing set of mitts.

And odds are only 1 in 16 the Canucks will get him.

Obviously there are great prospects in the draft, but they likely won’t fill the Canucks greatest needs, so that leaves the Canucks with trades and FA signings to fill those needs, which is not where the Canucks have gotten their best players.
We are all Jim Benning.

My targets outside of the top 5 - Hughes, Kakko, Podkozlin, Cozens, Byram. They will be gone by the time we draft

Krebs
Boldy
Zegras
Turcotte
Broberg
Newhook

Have to draft best player available. Positional needs are not jiving for us with the exception of Boldy. Krebs can be converted to LW.

Stay away from Dach, Suzuki, Lavoie

This is the 2016 draft. The one where Elmer selected Razor Thin Olaf

Why are you guys taking about 2019 draft prospects?
