Oh well, looks like somewhere between 10th & 12th overall draft pick.
Why? As it stands now the Canucks are 21st overall.
20 New Jersey: 76GP - 80P
21 Vancouver: 77GP - 79P
22 Ottawa: 76GP - 78P
23 Winnipeg: 76GP - 78P
24 Carolina: 76GP - 77P
25 Nashville: 76GP - 77P
The Canucks have a good chance of finishing as low as 25th overall. That would certainly land them with something in the top 10. There is potential for top 6.
I would wager the Canucks going 2-2-1 over their past 5 (LA, ANA, COL, EDM, CGY). Gives us 84 points.
Nashville has ANA, DAL, SJ, PHX, CHI, MIN. Ouch.
Carolina has DAL, NJ, NYR, WSH, DET, PHI
Winnipeg has PIT, TOR, MIN, BOS, CGY
Ottawa has MTL, NYR, NYI, NJ, TOR, PIT
Remember New Jersey gets 30th overall pick no matter how they finish for the Kovalchuk deal, so if they finish below the Canucks we move up one.
Based on that list I don't think we catch Nasvhille. All these teams are also playing roughly .500 hockey, so I don't think we're going to "make up" much ground. If the wheels keep coming off in Toronto, they could get into that top-10 range too.
We'll see, but I imagine we'll be picking between 8-11.
