Does Gillis' best player available strategy only apply to the first round? Maybe I'm just bitter that Rajala and Vatanen were still available...

Either way, I'm hoping this pick was made after hearing the Red Wings wanted him at 90th.

Seems a bit off the board, hopefully Gillis has good reason for this pick. People raised an eye brow when we drafted Rai as well and hes working out very well so far.

Between Kevin, Price, and Andersson hopefully we have a solid NHL player on the roster in 2-4yrs.

Im pretty upset about that as well, but BPA is subjective, and on their board Delhorme and company probably had him as the BPA. My problem is the guys that went after him: Button, Eakin, Bertilsson seemed like better picks only because I dont know much about connauton. Not to mention the 2 quebec league defensman as well.

Despite Detroit's drafting position, I am yet again amazed at the talent they pull in year after year. Its not shocking, I guess I am just jealous though.

Very surprised Detroit didnt get Haula in the 6th.

A good steal in the Final round by the Wild.

It should be noted that Connauton is Vancouver Giants property.

I've learned that there is indeed a possibility that Kevin Connauton, Vancouver's 3rd round selection in yesterday's NHL Entry Draft, may be joining the Vancouver Giants of the WHL next season. The Giants own Connauton's rights, but he played with the Western Michigan Broncos last season. I just spoke to Vancouver Giants Director of Player Personnel Jason Ripplinger, and he informed me that the Giants had discussions with Connauton and his father about the possibility of moving to Vancouver prior to the draft, and at that time, "they were very interested." However, they wanted to wait and see which NHL team would select him before they made a decision.

Now that Connauton is property of the Canucks, I think the possibility of him moving to the Giants increases significantly. Canucks General Manager Mike Gillis has been preaching a more hands-on approach when it comes to the development of his prospects, and to have Connauton move to Vancouver and the CHL (where there are far less limitations on NHL involvement compared to the NCAA) would certainly faciliate that. Additionally, Giants defenceman Jonathon Blum will be turning pro next season, which leaves a hole on the back end, and Connauton's hometown is Edmonton, so moving to Vancouver would bring him closer to home. Oh, and I forgot to mention that Don Hay and the Vancouver Giants are building a very strong reputation of successfully preparing their players for professional hockey.

Stay tuned for more.

Also stay tuned for my Vancouver Canucks draft review, which will include several testimonials about each of the Canucks new prospects.
