Friedman interviewing Benning. Asked him if his talks on Subban had gotten anywhere. Benning replies I can't discuss other teams players. Friedman: did the NHL talk to you? Benning: yes, they are investigating. Friedman: do you expect to trade your pick. Benning: No, at this point we are keeping the pick and moving on.


Friedman: are you targeting a forward or D. Benning: depends upon what happens in the first four picks. Maybe some traction to rumour if Dubois is gone they pick D.

Benning looked pissed, embarrassed and was giving real short answers.

Fair questions, but I can understand Benning feeling that his face is getting rubbed in the shit and not appreciating it. I wonder if he returns any of Friedman's calls for a while?

if Dubois isn't available to the Canucks at fifth overall, expect them to -- at the very least -- make a concerted effort to trade down with any of the teams sitting between sixth and tenth overall. From that point, it sounds as though they are likely to select Juolevi. And if Juolevi isn't available to them, they will be just as happy to select Sergachyov.

They would trade down for the 1st and 2nd round picks.

If Dubois and Juolevi are gone....wouldn't that mean Puljujärvi would still be on the board??? Canucks don't want him either?

I think they meant, if Dubois not available trade down and hope Juolevi is available at their new draft slot. If he isn't then they hope and would be happy to get Sergachov. That, in addition to whatever else they get in trading down.

So if Dubois is gone make a trade with Phoenix for their 1st plus something so they can draft Taychook and hope Juolevi slips past Calgary.

What else would I expect of a pig, but a grunt? I guess you get points for consistency.

But I guess Stevie Y gets a pass when his staff leave their draft strategy on the hotel floor? No muppets there, eh?
