Vancouver Canucks Top 10 Prospects
1. Nicklas Jensen, Left Wing
2. Brendan Gaunce, Center
3. Frankie Corrado, Defense
4. Kevin Connauton, Defense
5. Jordan Schroeder, Center
6. Anton Rodin, Left Wing
7. Patrick McNally, Defense
8. Eddie Lack, Goaltender
9. Joseph LaBate, Center
10. Alexandre Grenier, Right Wing
Organizational Ranking: 24th
System Overview: Vancouver was a hard system to rank because they have a fair amount of talent, but there are question marks up and down their pipeline. Can Jensen get some consistency and have a big season? How high is the upside for Gaunce and Corrado? Can Connauton defend in the NHL? Will Rodin break out? How for real is Alex Grenier? Did Eddie Lack's big seasons come from his talent level, or from bringing a goalie in his mid-20's in the AHL? I could see an argument that there's a league-average amount of talent in this system, but there are a lot of things to watch for this team going into next season.

The Penguins have 3. The Red Wings have 2. It proves that you can still find good players later in the draft in which Gillis has not been able to. Tired of the excuse, "well the Canucks haven't been drafting from a favorable position since Gillis has been in charge!" A big pile of stinky ass bull shite that is batman.

Anyways.... was meaning to post this in the prospects forum but given the conversation this seems to make sense.
In the last 30-something years, only six number 1 picks have won the Cup with the teams that drafted them. Pretty sure it's Kane, Crosby, Fleury, Lecavalier, Modano and Lemieux. I'm sure someone will correct me if i'm wrong. Seems to me, if you don't play for a team in Pittsburgh, you're royally fucked (much like the dude's social life).
The Oilers better get mighty good, because they've been the most pathetic, disgusting, and tragic hockey team to grace the NHL over the past few seasons.... we'll benefit from watching such a fantastic team 6 times/year.... but there's no way the Canucks should be scared of the Oilers yet.
