I wanna play the hindsight game!
Lol, Here's a fun list. from 1999 to 2008 I'm going to assemble a team of potential draft picks that were available when we took whomever it was we took in that draft, while keeping the actual good picks that were drafted.
I'm also assuming the picks available were only those available in the same round in which the actual player the Canucks took was taken.
Draft Year / Round / Who We Picked / Who We Should Have Picked / Who drafted them
1999 / 1 / Henrik Sedin / Henrik Sedin / Burke
1999 / 1 / Daniel Sedin / Daniel Sedin / Burke2000 / 1 / Nathan Smith / Steve Ott / Burke
2001 / 5 / Kevin Bieksa / Kevin Bieksa / Burke2002 / 2 / Kirill Koltsov / Duncan Keith / Burke2003 / 1 / Ryan Kesler / Corey Perry / Burke2003 / 9 Matthew Hansen / Brian Elliot / Burke2004 / 4 Andrew Sarauer / Ryan Callahan / Nonis
2004 / 3 Alex Edler / Alex Edler / Nonis
2004 / 9 Jannik Hansen / Jannik Hansen / Nonis
2004 / 1 Cory Schneider / Corey Schneider / Nonis2005 / 6 Kris Fredheim / Matt D'Agostini / Nonis2005 / 7 Mario Bliznak / Anton Stralman / Nonis2006 / 1 Michael Grabner / Claude Giroux / Nonis2007 / 1 Patrick White / David Perron / Nonis2008 / 1 Cody Hodgson / Tyler Myers / Gillis
