I'm hoping for 4th, best case scenario. 1,2 and 3 aren't even an option

Why isn't 6th an option?

Thankfully we can only fall as far as 5th, if 6th was an option you know damn well we are in contention

You obviously don't have the same understanding of Canuck luck that I have.

He hasn't had much luck in his NHL career, send GM Benning, switch it up, anything to help avoid last year.
Could send in one of your native shamans, and it still wouldn't be enough to lift the curse, Skyo! We are hooped, if we end up picking 4th, consider that a good thing, otherwise we are doomed to be picking 5th..
It's time to change the curse bro, Luongo lifted the goalie curse of Vancity being a graveyard to a goalie factory, & Burrows lifted the Blackhawks curse :devil: ....so hopefully Benning or someone else at the draft lotto can change that curse.
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."
