so trying to avoid talking about the lockout, my Question to you guys is out of the players your know of who do you want the Canucks to draft this year

For me its Jonathan Drouin, this kid is a stud on the ice he plays for the Mooseheads on a line with MacKinnon here in halifax (one good thing about living in Nova Scotia) nice speed to him, not very big which is what we need but hes got great speed and scoring ability so far this season hes got 7 points in the first 2 games of the season...really love watching this guy play and really want the canucks to get this guy

Who do you want???

dont say MacKinnon, we all want him

Nathan MacKinnon :bigblush:

In all seriousness though, if we get another top 10 pick, if he's still available we should go for Hunter Shinkaruk.

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

No the lottery system actuaaly weights playoff results and recent 1st overall picks, so Vancouver is likely to select at 20 or higher

The best player available!

The thing is playing on the same line as Mackinnon may inflate his stats so he may not be as good as you think. Look at Sam Gagner his stats in junior were excellent but they were inflated because he was playing with Patrick Kane. I'm not saying hes a bust but he hasn't lived up to his potential yet.

Look at Sam Gagner his stats in junior were excellent but they were inflated because he was playing with Patrick Kane. I'm not saying hes a bust but he hasn't lived up to his potential yet.


What about Brad Richards who played with Vinny Lecavalier in juniors which led people to believe Brad was feeding off of the much more talented Vinny, causing Richards to fall to the 3rd round as a result despite putting up 118 points in his draft year? Yet who won the Conn Smythe when they won the Cup together, and who has more points in their careers so far (while playing 2 full seasons less than the other)? Brad.

I'm not saying Drouin will have a better NHL career than MacKinnon - no way. MacKinnon is a great talent (perhaps generational like Crosby), but maybe his stats are inflated too a bit because of Drouin. Maybe they both bring the best out of each other, and given some talent on their line, both will go on to have successful careers.

The thing with Gagner and Kane - Kane gets to play with Toews right off the bat. Gagner had nobody until Hall, Eberle and RNH came along (and now Yakupov). I'd wait until next season before judging Gagner - with some decent talent that can finish like Kane (ie, Yakupov, who is better IMO in that regard) on his wing, Gagner could thrive.

Seth Jones, Nathan MacKinnon, Sean Monahan, Hunter Shinkaruk, Curtis Lazar

In that order for me. I haven't included Europeans because I don't know them that well, but I'm sure there are a few that warrant to precede Shinkaruk - but the top 3 remain as they are.

EDIT: someone kindly pointed out that Sam Reinhart isn't eligible until 2014 :P

o.O

Oooo no wonder ... thanks man - that figures haha. Crazy that he captained the U-18 team this year even though he's not eligible for the draft next year! I automatically assumed since he was captaining a team that included MacKinnon, Lazar, etc.

I hope not. He's small and not very skilled.
Maybe in the 6th or 7th round, but I don't see him amounting to much.

In a later round.

Overeager who isn't even a star in the CHL. He has almost no NHL potential.
