What he said! How about it a Canadian kid for a change.
Oh wait he'd get traded when he showed promise.

Hey idiot, Kassian is Canadian too.

I have a few guys in mind who could be available,,,

1. Tomas Hertl - CZE - C, LW - I think he will be the steal of the draft if he goes later than 10. From rankings that I've seen we do have a chance at him even at 26.
2. Derrick Pouliot - SSK - D - He would have to fall a whole bunch of picks but he's a great puck-moving dman.
2. Colton Sissons - North Van - RW, C - Great leadership and defensive abilities
3. Dalton Thrower - North Van - D - Punishing defenceman
4. Tom Wilson - Toronto - RW - Not the greatest top end potential but he should make the NHL in some capacity. He will not be as good offensively as Lucic or Kassian but he will be a reliable bottom six forward.

Are there no twins out there?...........or brothers?

Why do we never see any German forwards?

The last time we picked 26th overall, we drafted Cory Schneider ... Good omen

We've got a good big forward prospect in Kassian.
We've got plenty of good small forward prospects like Sweatt and Schroeder.
We've got good puck-moving defencemen prospects like Grangnani and Connautan.
We've got a good goalie prospect in Lack.

Now all we need is a big, physical shutdown defenceman. Something our team is lacking right now, and something our prospect pool is lacking. Go for size on the blueline MG!

What's the point of drafting players with MG? They just get traded anyways.

The toughest part of this kind of 'who do we draft' threads is not knowing who is available by the time that the Canucks pick. Plus, I don't live in a WHL town anymore so I've never seen any of these kids play.

Under the Geneva Convention and various treaties ending WW 2, German's are NOT allowed to go on the offensive .. B)

Based on the national team roster, and especially the Olympic team, there isn't much German talent available yet. Perhaps their development program is not effective enough yet to produce NHL-caliber forwards. Only Jochen Hecht, Marcel Goc and Marco Sturm are German forwards playing in the NHL.

In terms of who I'd like to see the Canucks draft, it would be nice for them to attempt acquiring the first overall pick away from the Oilers. Perhaps they could negotiate with Columbus to swap picks with Edmonton, then acquire the top pick from the Jackets.
