I say you entertain trading the pick if it’s outside the top 10, keep it if inside the top 10. I think with the Seattle Expansion Draft coming (protection issues) this years Draft picks for young players needing protection could have a premium price on them

What we need to focus on is who is going to be in a shit storm come the Seattle Expansion Draft

They are seven points out of the playoffs with a bunch of teams in between them and a wildcard spot. It ain’t happening. There are only two teams with worse points pctg in Chicago and LA.

Since the Canucks will be drafting between 12th and 20th who should we be targeting?

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."

Dach has played like shit the last 10 games. I believe he has 1 point in that stretch.

RHD out of Kelowna. Never a bad decision, they seem to farm them here!

If things don't go too good.;

#7 on this list; Bowen Byram, LHD / 07-13-01 / 6’1 192lbs / WHL
An explosive skater who can act as a one-man breakout. He blends his terrific acceleration and north-south speed with lateral edge work and play-creation through the neutral zone. Owns a heavy shot that is effective in all situations. Quick hands that embarrass oncoming forwards at the offensive blueline. Can get caught at times, but you take the good with the bad. An efficient power play quarterback in the making.

More realistic;

#16 on this list; Arthur Kaliev, RW / 06-26-01 / 6’2 190lbs / OHL
A shoot-first winger who knows how to find the back of the net. Somewhat one-dimensional at times but that dimension has produced 24 goals in 34 OHL games this season. Drives into the hard areas and protects the puck well. Changes the release point and angle to exploit netminders. The best pure shooter in the draft.

Lol how is the team propelling nine spots up the standings realistic? The holy grail of .500 lmao

Well, Blob, tons could change in the rankings by June.
You are consistently adamant in re; to BPA. Nothing wrong with that at all.
There can come a time, in a rebuild, where you think a tad, just a tad, differently.
Personally, I don't want us to get too much smaller as a team.
We are getting along in our renovation now and IMO, our team needs, or need, could just ever so slightly,
move toward best player for our needs. :shock: OMG, I said a bad thing. ;)

I'm sure Quinn will be a dynamo, cool, but some size with some talent to boot---good.
Some sort of wicked shot from the point, "from a D-man"...indeed.

Hey, I'll no doubt change my mind 20 times before June.

The best thing for this franchise is another top-10 pick. Hell, maybe the balls bounce our way this time. I could see a nice narrative around the Hughes bros, with grumbling elsewhere about an NHL conspiracy to give the Canucks another superstar brother duo... Totally fine with where things are trending.

It would be great to add another 1st. Maybe on July 1 Edler returns as a UFA on a 2-year deal?
