Hypothetical Draft Guarantee

Welcome to the main forum of our site. Anything and everything to do with the Vancouver Canucks is dicussed and debated here.

Would you take a guarantee of the 2nd/3rd pick over the chance to draft Dahlin?

Absolutely! I would do it for the third. Guarantee of walking away with Zadina, Boqvist or Tkachuk is worth the sacrifice

I would only do it for the second, not third. Svechnikov is a sweet consolation prize

No! We're unlikely to win but Dahlin is worth the risk

Hypothetical Draft Guarantee

Post by rockalt » Fri Apr 27, 2018 4:24 pm

I figure with only 1 day left before the lottery, I'd gauge how confident people are feeling/attached to the idea of finally winning the lottery.

Hypothetically if you could walk away with a guarantee of the 2nd/3rd pick but forego the lottery would you do it? Or would you rather cling to the minuscule chances of drafting Dahlin, even if it likely means drafting 6-9th?

I guess Dude stepped out to the liquor store in anticipation of the draft lotttery party tonight. Don’t be getting too lit up beforehand buds. I can picture him now drinking out of a paper bag shaking his fist at drivers weaving down Hastings and his jeans covered in piss.

Back in the early 90’s when Blobbee was mastering the fine art of drunken bafoonery while under the tutelage of some the Wild Duck Inns most famous patrons of swill, Extra Old Stock tall boys and/or Molson Malt tall boys were Blobbees go-to beers

Not me. Budweiser all the way back then amigo. I could never drink Okeefes or Pilsner, Kokanee, Old Milwaukee is pretty rancid too. If I was on a budget I’d drink Busch or Rainer ahead of all that crap. Actually American Busch isn’t bad. Drinking more craft beers lately. I’m going to Parkside and Yello Dog to full some growlers here in a bit.

Beer is best but liquor's quicker...fuck that go with gibbys 18 yr venerable on ice then graduate to mixing with coke once you've burned your gullet to the ground.

Oh and Blob I'm all in on the weed vapes now. Smoked myself into a fuckin bronchitis one too many times last days off. Bought this dry herb vape thing from my online weed outlet and and have been blown away by how smooth its even at 435 degrees.

The disposable pens are the best. No stink, no coughing. Ive puffed them in my house and at work and nobody is the wiser.

Ya theyre ok but for me with the concentrates it gets away from smoking grass and becomes more of a chemical trip. Give a dry herb vape a test rip. Its almost like smoking a litle pipe without the lung burn.

Those were fun days.
