Love the Jordan Staal comparison because when I heard that Staal was looking for a trade I started thinking about how it'd be great to have him as a Canuck. Not practical of course because the whole reason he wanted out of Pitts was he doesn't want to be a #3 center anymore and he'd have been no different here, but Gaunce is a great pick and it's great depth and size to have in the organization.

Welcome to the Canucks Brendan Gaunce!

He can be followed on Twitter here: https://twitter.com/BrendanGaunce16

Bet his followers have quadrupled already lol

What a joke, then Phoenix gets Samuelsson to put salt in the wounds...

FOR ONCE I wanted a player to be excited about....is it so much to ask.

A Toast to Aquillini for getting Torterella.

An owner who knows what the people want.

That's entertainment.

First time I called our pick in years. If he bites it I can't blame Mikey.

Dude must have be broadest shoulders among those picked so far. Him, Jansen and Kassian will be fun to watch in a few years as they merrily bulldoze their way through the Flames' squad of pencil necks.

Exactly what we needed. We somehow pick a guy who was ranked 20th? Samuelsson would have been tempting though.

I would have liked a Dman, but Gillis and company did say they would draft the best available propsect nicely done. I think Brendan Guance will be a good player for the Canucks.

Made me happy to here the J Stall comparison - if that holds true then the Nucks did really well. Fingers crossed!
