He's eligible for the 2012 draft, can't be signed as a free agent

Bobby MacKinzie said his stock is rising as high as a 1st rounder right now

Honestly, can't go wrong picking this guy.

Sounds like a character player, with plenty of determination and heart.

I hope we pick him, he has determination and even if he busts out he may help some of our other prospects with skills because of his work ethic and determination

It is pretty typical to see a 19 or 20 year old ripping it up in the CHL. He could have been drafted in 2010, so he is 2 years older than other players being drafted this year, so naturally he is going to have more success.

It is not uncommon to see players like this: Justin Azevedo, Tyler Donati, and Corey Locke are just a few examples of players who were passed up in their draft year only to tear up the OHL. None of these players have translated their junior success into NHL success.

I'm not saying there isn't a chance Pearson can be different, but what he is doing isn't anything new.

OH YEAH

man Tanner Pearson is a rising star. Even if he's not in the top 20 or whatever, he's a point producer and it'd be smart to look at that rather than the standings when choosing our([TheCanucks]) draft pick. He'll be a great addition to the team and get us that much closer - that many more goals closer - to the glorious stanley cup. If he produces, he and hodgson could be the faces of the franchise one day when Burrows and the Sedins are gone.

a point or more a game according to elite prospects.

LOL calm down guys, very impressive season, don't forget he is a overager, and his ice time is literally off the charts, there are times were he is playing around 30 minutes.
