I know its early to be making a mock draft because picks can go back and forth between trades, but im bored so here is my mock draft for the Canucks.

1st Round: 26th Pick
C - Colton Sissons GP:58 G:26 A:15 P:41
Skate's hard despite being big he doesn't get held back. At 6'1 190Ibs he plays hard and love's to lay the body while creating room for his linemates. He's got a sharp hockey mind and knows where to be on the ice. The scouts have him going around 23rd overall and able to play a top 6 role in the NHL while continuing to work on his all around game. He also has a lethal shot.

2nd Round: 57th Pick
LW - Coda Gordon GP:66 G:30 A:23 P:53
Size is similar to Sissons at 6'1 190Ibs. Solid at wing with great strength and ability to generate offence and score. He reads the ice well, finds the open spots, and has good feet. Scored 30 goals as a WHL rookie and can put up the points.

5th Round: 147th Pick
RW - Taylor Burke GP:42 G:6 A:13 P:19
A raw winger with a good asset down low. Hard worker that continues to work on his skating after being out for the beggining of last year with shoulder surgery. Needs to be confident to play that rugged take no prisoner style of hockey.

6th Round: 177th Pick
G - Corbin Boes GP:41 GA:106 GAA: 2.84 SV% 0.916
Huge rookie goalie at 6'3 216Ibs with 20 wins and an excellent save percentage with a blossing game.

7th Round: 207th Pick
LW - Billy Jenkins GP:64 G:10 A:24 P:34
Crafty small left wing at 5'10 165Ibs. A puck carrier with big time speed and lateral abilities. Has potential offensive prowess but yet to blossom.

Thoughts? Any changes?

I know I hope they will draft a D-man but the wingers I drafted are better at wing then the D is at D.

EDIT: Plus I think the Canucks will scoop up Garrison.

You also have to keep in mind that defensemen take longer to develop, so the forwards will obviously look better at their position heading into the draft.

I really don't think we need to draft another goalie before we draft a D man. With one of our first 2 picks I reckon we get a D man.

LOL. Not a chance Murray will be available at 5th overall. I'd either Reilly, Reinhart, or
Galchenyuk with that pick.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

I like it. A lot of WHL'ers. In the 2nd round I would take a shot at Brian Hart. Sounds like a project but could be worth the risk.

I also like Zane Jones in the 5th round. Big winger, who is the nephew of Lanny McDonald. Plays for the Victoria Royals.

Can we please not draft a goalie this year? We have a lot. Schneider will also play for about 12 years for us minimum. So we don't need a goalie for now.

Fixed err a lil bitty. I think it will go 1. Nail Yakupov 2. Mikhail Grigorenko 3. Filip Forsberg 4. Alex Galchenyuk 5. Ryan Murray.
Normally I would have Murray ahead of Galchenyuk but NYI could use a Center that they can develope along this their rebuild

No chance Murray is available as the 5th pick, either Edmonton or Columbus will select him 2nd.
1. Yakupov
2. Murray
3. Grigorenko
4. Forsberg
5. Galchenyuk

Ryan Murray will be a top 4 defenseman but he's not going to be some stud, game changer like Duncan Keith or Ryan Suter. He does everything well but hes not outstanding. Morgan Reilly, Mathew Dumba and Griffin Reinhardt all have a bigger up side, but Murray is the safe pick.

I'd rather we trade up in the draft, and get a better centerman like Girgensons or Gaunce. We're pretty week in centerman prospects, and it would be nice to pick up a guy, that in a few years can replace kesler if he continues his antics. Plus you can never go wrong with a centerman as they are capable of playing the wing.

If he is there I would really like to see Scott Laughton picked.

"He has been compared to and patterns his game after Mike Richards. He improved his offensive play as the OHL season wore on, and given his character it comes as no surprise he has elevated his game thus far into the OHL playoffs. Even if Laughton is not contributing offensively, he always excels defensively, working extremely hard away from the puck. He’ll have to work on his speed, but his vision and hockey IQ set this takeaway machine up to be an impact player in the big league."

I also think Luckas Sutter could be a guy to take a chance on with the 1st round pick.

Coda Gordon, Brian Hart and Chandler Stephenson are guys who look good as a 2nd round pick as well.

26th - Martin Frk
57th - Henrik Samuelsson
147th - Anton Zlobin
177th - Alex Gudbranson
207th - Ryan Rupert

i hope we move some players for some third rd picks. I'd like the Canucks to draft Nick Ebert and Adam Pelech in the third round. Drafting eiter in the 2nd would be too early and at 147th they'll probably be gone.

Wow. Draftsite.com is all over the place in there drafting. They have Adam Pelech getting drafted at 63, when hes ranked 140 among NA skaters and Henrik Samuelsson at 23 when he's ranked 75. I know CSS rankings arent everything but they do give a pretty good indictation where they'll be drafted.

I don't think there has been much consensus outside of the top 15 this year .

While I agree with you about people dreaming every year, we usually don't have a starting goalie to trade every year.

26th: Colton Sissons
32nd: Henrik Samuelsson
57th: Martin Frk

That's what I noticed. Don't have too much knowledge about the prospects this year aside from the big names but I think we would have to draft a defenseman within the first 4-5 rounds cause that was one of our significant struggles this season

I'm hoping we can nab another first rounder out of either Toronto or Tampa Bay. But with what we have so far in the first three rounds, I'd like to see this:

1st round: Hampus Lindholm http://www.elitepros...hp?player=34882 /Dalton Thrower http://eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=45529

2nd round: Brian Hart http://eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=131064/Josh Anderson http://eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=95853

3rd round: Jujhar Kharia http://www.eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=93577

I think the majority of our next few picks would be leaned on towards our Swedish scouting that we're so well known for, that being said, it would be nice to see Hampus Lindholm or Ludvig Bystrom fall into our hands for the 26th overall pick.

That's just my take!!!

Cheers,
GO CANUCKS GO!!!
