My Spidey sense tells me we are drafting Hughes

Dobson will be gone and the Canuck brass are not high on Bouchard or Boqvist

Buffalo - Dahlin
Carolina - Svechnikov
Montreal - Kotkaniemi
Ottawa - Zadina
Arizona - Tkachuk
Detroit - Dobson
Vancouver - Hughes

I think they’re trying to decide between Hughes and Wahlstrom. The first 6 is set in stone leaving us Hughes, Wahlstrom, Boqvist and Bouchard. There are concerns with Boqvist and Bouchard. Hearing the Canucks don’t like Bouchard.

Flip a coin - it will be one of Hughes or Wahlstrom

If Hughes and Dobson are gone the Canucks will either pick one of Wahlstrom and Kotkaniemi or trade back for Barret Hayton

The best part is unless JB goes off the board there really is no one that he picks which will be a bad decision.

Well one must not forget there is an element of a crap shoot to drafting 18 year olds. From 2016 to the 2017 draft he goes from a questionable choice st 5th to quite possibly the best player in the 2017 class at 6th. Let’s hope this is the trajectory from 2017 and not a pattern of a questionable (Virtanen), excellent (Boeser), questionable (Juolevi), excellent (Pettersson, questionable (2018)

The only way Hughes works out for us is if we are picking him this year and his bro next...

Bros before Hughes....

If you squint your ears it sort of sounds...

Write a book of revelations
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

I'd guess the canucks draft list is something like this:

dahlin
svechnikov
hughes
tkachuk
dobson
zadina
bouchard
wahlstrom
boqvist
smith
kotkaniemi
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

I bolded the sweet spot. Just need Detroit to pick Hughes and Montreal to take Kotkanemi and we'll get one of them. If all three are gone, grab Boqvist.
We are all Jim Benning.
