I think the Canucks did well today in round 1.
And the Flames blew it so that's even more comforting.
I like the mix of forward prospects we have now, some skill, two-way ability, size and grittiness.
The only thing that is probably missing is a game breaking centre for the future. If we can find someone for that role over the next year or two, I will be pretty content with the future of the Canucks up front.
Not big on what the Flames did either. Monahan was an easy pick at 6 but their other two picks could have easily been 2nd round selections.
To be fair, this was a deep draft and there wasn't as much separation between players ranked 20-50 as there usually may be but I think the Flames passed on better players with picks 22 and 28.
