Will the canucks have a chance at #1 Draft pick?

78 posts in this topic

They will have the third overall pick and take Shinkurk. They'll be good. This is a deep draft!

Betteman's pet project and vested personal interest will come first, meaning Phoenix will get the #1 for sure.

I wonder if we have the worst luck with 1st round picks.. Only a small percentage of ours go on to do great things with our team...

Oh CDCers, I just imagine that some of you look like this:

We do have a chance at 1st overall if the lockout erases the whole season. Every team does.

Last lockout we took 10th overall (RIP Luc) with a 1/48 (2.08%)

The teams with 3 balls ended up being picked: 1st, 6th, 13th, 16th

The teams with 2 balls ended up being picked: 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 7th, 8th, 11th, 17th, 18th, 25th, 26th

So even though Vancouver only had 1 ball to choose they still beat out 2 teams with 3 balls and 5 teams with 2 balls.

It is al luck and odds.

Not really luck, more like poor choices and development.

Didnt we draft Nathan Smith in 2000?

I think our development system has improved . We now turn our draft picks into solid NHL players.

Poor choices? LOL

Looking at our 1st round picks since 2000, our track record looks pretty great.

2000 - 2nd/3rd Overall - Daniel/Henrik Sedin (Top line superstars)

2001 - 16th Overall - RJ Umberger (6 time 20 goal scorer, but did not develop with VAN)

2002 - No 1st Rounder

2003 - Ryan Kesler (2nd line centre Selke winner)

2004 - Cory Schneider (One of the best young goaltenders in the league)

2005 - Luc Bourdon (Would have been a top 4 defender had the tragic accident not happened, RIP)

2006 - Michael Grabner (Developed with VAN, but wasn't in proper shape, this was admitted by Grabner himself)

2007 - Patrick White (BUST)

2008 - Cody Hodgson (Developed by VAN, traded due to drama issues, got a top power forward prospect in return)

2009 - Jordan Schroeder (Ranked as a top 5 North American prospect, should have been a steal at 22)

2010 - No 1st Rounder

2011 - Nicklas Jensen (Leading scorer on SEL team)

2012 - Brendan Gaunce (One of the draft's most NHL ready prospects, lots of defensive potential)

Man, our first round drafting and development just SUCKSSSSS.

Only 4 Canucks drafted prospects have played more than 10 games in the NHL since 2005 (Bourdon, Raymond, Grabner, Hodgson). Only 1 of those players is currently on the Canucks roster (should be 2 if Bourdon was still alive). Not the greatest track record since the lockout.

What you are all forgetting is that each team will draft 2 sets.

One for this year's lockout and the continuing lockout for next year.

Sedins were 99, Nathan Smith was 2000. So we drafted 2 busts 12 drafts.

How do we compare to similar teams?

Nashville - 2 busts (Finley, Parent)

St. Louis - 3 busts (Schwarz, Taffe, Belle)

LA - 4 busts (Hickey, Lewis, Tukonen, Karlsson )

Boston - 4 busts (Hamill, Lashoff, Toivonen, Jonsson)

San Jose - 4 busts (Wishart, Kaspar, Morris, Jilsson)
