Not mad. Looking forward to what should be an entertaining Ducks/Oilers series.

I don't consider hostility to idiocy as a bad thing, it should be what separates this joint from the CDC/HFBoards of the world.

Back to the topic at hand... a nice bounce for the Canucks would be great. And maybe it's fitting that 2nd overall pick Trevor Linden is going to attend. Although, with how the 88 draft went, maybe we'd prefer 8-10th.

Prediction - we are walking out of this draft with either Mittlestadt or one of Heskanen or Liljegren

Yup. Odds are against us picking #1 or 2, so I suppose this is right. As much as we need a centre, we could also use a quality defenceman. Can't wait for Saturday and have our draft position clarified.

Prediction - whoever is picked will be over-valued by rabid Canuck fans and termed a bust by many within a year.

Ha Ha! I'm first!

What a stupid pick that guy is a BUST!
We are all Jim Benning.

I trusted the old ping-pong balls in a glass globe more than any computer supplied by the NHL front office.

Do the ping-pong balls but start at first over all, BUT, you have to keep doing it until the same team comes up TWICE.
THEN, go to a commercial break, remove the rest of that winning team's balls, (ha-ha), and repeat the process for second over all and so on and so on.
Sound barbaric? Well ya, but I'm a barbarian and everyone knows it so what the hell... :mrgreen:

I'm just banking on worst case scenario so if we get anything higher than 5th I'll be happy!

Anything left to chance with the Canucks pretty much has me glass half empty. haha

My prediction is Detroit of LA get the 1st or 2nd OA pick jumping up. The NHL wants these teams back in the news.

Patrick scares the heck out of me - Hernia can kill it ask the #1 pick in WHL Mr Benson what that's like. 2 seasons played less than one.

Yup.

But Even then, only if someone's credible watches, or they live stream the event.. I feel if they draw behind closed doors, the fix is still in.

Unless we get first pick or stay the same at 2.

I can only assume the conspiracy is alive and strong

Sitting on the can right now, and I just pinched off two big logs, so I think this is a sign we are getting the second pick.


Anyone have a different number this morning?

I'm bouncing back and forth between 4th and 5th.
