Canucks continue to be a small team. Would’ve preferred Dobson for a more balanced player, but can’t deny Hughes’ skill level.

Okay, hope the Bobby Orr comparisons are accurate.
We are all Jim Benning.

WOOHOOO!

HUGHES QB ROCKSTAR.
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 feel a little disappointed.

Why?

Does size matter?

We're getting Jack Hughes to replenish the brother connection.

I'm going to believe this is going to be another Brock and Pettersson type of pick :D
Try to focus on 1 year from now...

BB says it Hughes.
Yup, we probably have the smallest defense in the NHL.
But they have your hero Gudbranson.... he’s 6 ft 5

Well. Not whom I'd have picked, but I'm not a bird-dog scout drafting genius.

I guess we'll see.

Maybe in three years, people can use this post to reinforce a comment such as "You should just relax and enjoy the genius at work".

Not really. Actually skill is far more important than size.
The only HW the Canucks need
