My knee-jerk is WTF. A perimeter player. Sounds awesome.

I probably should take some time and let this sit for a while.


Edit: After taking a few breaths, I just hope this was who they felt was the BPA - it sounds to me from the interview with JB that they were more interested in the position rather than BPA - but maybe I misunderstood or heard wrong - if it was the case then I think this was likely a mistake. Give it 2 or 3 years and we will actually be able to judge it as a good or bad pick.

Are u. Fucking kidding me
Yup. two years in a row i've had the same reaction. He may turn out to be good but could you not have traded down for even an average asset, and accomplished the same thing?

He tried hard to trade down but no takers.
The only HW the Canucks need

Gradin pick?

He usually does well compared to the other scouts.
We are all Jim Benning.

Gaglardi is a total douche - met him in Kamloops one time. He likes to think he's god and his daddy didn't hand him everything.

Pettersson could be awesome if he gains weight - not sure what to think with Vilardi and Glass sitting there. Big gamble, hope they are right.

Benning seems to hate bigger guys that play with any sort of jam. What a joke he's been described as a perimeter player that should work out real good in an NHL playoff series

GRADIN pick, he won this round!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lots of write ups I have seen think Pettersen could end up being the best player in this draft, only time will tell.

Well I am a little surprised. I figured if they coveted Peterssen they would have traded down so just assumed they were going with Glass when they didn't trade. Oh well. Pretty hard to know how this will pan out in the long run.

Well, just to play devil's advocate... is Glass any more physically mature than Pettersson? I doubt he's ready for the NHL right away.

It seems some GMs feel both have higher upside than Vilardi?

Yeah, Vilardi still hasn't been called...
