Fuck never been so pissed at the NHL and the Canucks fucking luck - 2 years in a row under the new fucking system we drop spots, after other teams cleaned up on the old system.

I hope to god whoever we get at #5 turns out to be better than the players drafted ahead of him.

Seriously guys What the fuck!

Why are you mad at the tankers? These ARE "try for the playoffs" results!

Tanking would've gotten us 4th...

Now a "pro Rebuilder" would say, "no big deal, this is why we've stockpiled draft picks throughout the draft". ;)

It's only math. We'll be back next year, maybe things go our way then.

Did he not say that of the 15 lottery teams the Canucks and one other team have not ever had a 1st overall pick? LOL. The Perrault curse. 47 years in this league and no 1st overall pick. Too much

Right on HW
Mmmm if the Canucks hadn't collapsed down the stretch they would be picking 8 to 10th. It obviously sucks to lose the lottery repeatedly but that doesn't change the fact that this team needs an infusion of top end prospects. We are going to be a lottery team again next year so better get used to the disappointment of losing out on the top 3 picks! ;)

That's rich, coming from the recently converted "rebuilder". Or are we knee-jerking back to "playoffs baby!" after this result?

As has been said many times: rebuilding is not just getting a 1st overall pick, it's getting lots of picks, regardless of position, and stockpiling young assets.

Rebuilding =/= tanking.

So don't sign Miller etc., so we can finish 2nd worse to draft 5th overall? That's working out quite well for you Pro Tankers

Then if it's about stockpiling as many picks as possible don't bitch and moan about who we draft if you are all about quantity. And don't bitch and moan about trying to make the playoffs

Yep. :thumbs:

Simply wishing it wasn't so, or bitching about "tanking" or a "curse" doesn't change reality.

This wasn't a tanking team. It's a team with dreadful talent that could use some luck come ping-pong ball time one of these years. If we get that luck, things might progress faster. If we don't, we'll get used to Bill Daley's card flips.

If they do that by trading veterans/expiring deals for picks, and not package picks and prospects for mediocre roster players? Try away, little fella!

LOL you and Doc are the only delusional mouth breathers that have actually thought playoffs were and are a possibility. Caught in your own twisted web of lies and bullshit right here. Quit while you are ahead.
