And as I recall, many were still questioning this deal up to last year. How many posts were directed at the "sisters" with the emphasis on sending them packing ?

Couldn't agree more. In this new NHL it will be interesting to see if this type of developement will be the exception.

And in this era when everyone is watching who's getting paid what, well worth their salary.

I wonder why Martin Havlat went so late in the 1st round...

Martin Erat Round 7 steal of a deal hes a pretty solid player IMO

They're top point getters in their draft class.

Actually, Havlat is No. 1 in that class. Followed by the Twins. Comrie ain't too far behind them. Still, not a bad draft result.

(Let's all hope Pyatt pulls off the late bloomer and zooms up the charts this season. ;) )

I sit corrected :)

But, 2 & 3 still ain't bad considering.

Hmm, maybe if he plays with the Twins it'll happen?

I loved the Leafs getting Mccabe because Chicago was dumb enough to trade him a year later for Karpotsev.

Yeah - not a strong group. The long shot that made it was Zetterberg (7th)

Complete Draft


Don't forget Ryan Miller was in there about 5th round I think.

So Daniel is 2nd overall, #22 on the Nucks...
Henrik is 3rd overall, #33 on your program...
How about we lobby to get #88 for Pyatt and call that line the "99 Draft Line"? :)

Loved the trade on Draft day, then as the Sedin struggle through the first few seasons came to question it.. last few seasons loved it again :D . Let's see what the next few bring...

Though, IMHO this one still goes down as one of the all time great Canuck robberies... If only because we ended up getting the Great Canuck back on the rosters years later. Though understandably lost a bit of luster after "the incident"...

06-Feb-98: New York Islanders traded Todd Bertuzzi, Bryan McCabe and 3rd round selection (Jarkko Ruutu) in 1998 to the Vancouver Canucks for Trevor Linden.

As a life long long Canuck fan, it is so rare to hear the team spoken about in such high esteem.

On a side note, waht I love about this site is that it is populated with die hard fans. Being British by birth, I could not imagine ever turning my back on my football team (Glasgow Celtic), as my father supported the team, as did his father, and his father before him. I stuggle to understand those fans who, for example, are Bertuzzi fans, over Canuck fans. The team makes the player, not the other way around!

Hail! Hail! Canucks








Im Man Utd fan fella glad to see a fellow brit on here. as for the sedins-they rule the roost- top players.
