08 draft? 09 draft? where are they now?


The players from the 09 draft are developing.

I'll admit that the 08 draft was horrible. The only significant player to come out of that was Hodgson, and he pretty much landed right in Gillis's lap. However, Gillis had only been on the job for like a month at that point though. Not sure he had a whole lot of time to prepare.

The 09 draft was one of his strongest drafts. Just cause they haven't played in the NHL doesn't mean they're not good players. The Canucks have the luxury of developing their prospects properly.

Schroeder is a better player than some people on here will have you believe. I think people will be surprised when he steps in and starts putting up points.

Rodin has hit a little rut right now, but he still has a ton of skill, he just needs to bulk up. Not unlike Mason Raymond, who wasn't able to crack the NHL until he was 23.

Connauton is a solid offensive defenseman. He set records in the WHL playing for the Giants, and went on to play in the all-star game in the AHL while winning hardest shot. Right now he's trying to round out the defensive side of his game; which is why there's a drop in his stats. He's still gonna be a good player though.

Price was an awesome pick in the 4th round, probably our most underrated pick. He's putting up great numbers in college and is the captain of his team.

Andersson has been a pleasant surprise for a 5th round pick. He's got great size and skating. He could be a good depth defender in a couple years.

Cannata again looks like a real good late round pick. He's stuck as a backup right now, but he'll get his shot.

I would say that's a pretty solid draft if you ask me. It's too early to tell with 2010-2012 drafts, but there seems to be some real good players there too.

I think Schroeder will turn out to be a decent player, by the time he's ready to step in the lineup he will be able to make significant contributions, but god knows when that will be. Ryan O'Reilly was picked a few picks later.

Rodin however has not developed the way a 2nd rounder should. Hindsight is 20/20 but after Tatar's stellar WJC he should've been picked over Rodin.

Connauton is a dman so i'll give him the benefit of the doubt. However besides his shot I don't see anything special. Still young though.

Andersson like you said, figures to be a depth D.

The only reason Cannata is in Chicago is because Lack is hurt. He's posting 3.62GAA and .892 down in the ECHL

Steven Anthony, not sure where he is

The only reason why Cannata hasn't been in Chicago is because there's a log jam at goaltending right now. He's good enough to play in the AHL, he showed that he was capable. I wouldn't worry about his ECHL numbers, the Wings best defenseman is Polasek.

As for Anthony, I don't think it's worth mentioning a 7th round pick. The odds are so low that these picks ever turn out. You can't blame drafting if they don't. If he somehow manages to surprise and make it in the NHL someday, it would just be a bonus, but it's very unlikely.

Standard ELC deal for any top draft picks - for which Schultz would certainly qualify. And he's now far less risky than your standard high draft pick, given what he's proven to do in the AHL.


Your stupid argument makes me think of Jason Krog and Darren Haydar. AHL success means NOTHING

08 draft? 09 draft? where are they now?


Calgary's 2008 picks...
Is Greg Nemisz, Calgary's 2008 first round pick is something to brag about? 15 games and a point in his NHL career so far. Calgary's 2nd round pick in 2008, Mitch Wahl has been demoted from the Heat to the ECHL...3rd - Lance Bouma? Totally underwhelming. Nicholas Larson? 11 points in 52 college games in the last two years....
BTW Calgary traded the pick that turned out to be Jake Gardiner....

Hodgson and Sauve look awful damn good in comparison.

2009 -
Calgary's 1st, Tim Erixon certainly isn't leaving Schroeder in his dust.

Rodin, Connauton... not exactly being outshone by Ryan Howse.

Not exactly striking envy into Canucks fans.

I've heard a lot of whining about Vancouver trading their picks in 2010 and then selecting McNally in the fourth round.

On the other hand they signed both Lack and Tanev as UFAs in 2010.
I'd say they pretty much compensated outside the box there.

Very hard to complain about pulling Jensen, and Corrado out of the 2011 class.

Henrik Tommernes (7th round) is a good young defenseman in the SEL who is overlooked.
"A mobile, offensively skilled defenseman, Tömmernes is a very good skater and playmaker from the back end. Has terrific hockey sense, his defensive game is solid as well. Often gets his point shots through the traffic in front of the net."

2012 - it's really too early, but I think Gaunce is a better outcome than we could have hoped for at 26 (at the right position) - if people are going to complain, do it now - or perhaps spare us the hindsight later on...

Right, let's talk about the draft picks a GM that was fired 2 years ago made, lol. Do you want to bring up the Phaneuf trade while you're at it?

Tim Erixon almost PPG in the AHL right now, more points than Schroeder actually, and will be a good NHLer, nice try though.

I see - you only identify with the post-Sutter, Feaster Flames.
I'd wait before lauding Feaster for taking Jankowski in the first round.
Aside from Baertschi, it really takes rose coloured glasses to be pumping Feaster's tires.

You asked where the 2008/9 Canucks picks are now - Hodgson/Kassian, Connauton, Sauve - all players that are likely to have NHL careers.

A team in a position like Vancouver really only needs a player or two each year to crack their lineup...Out of Tanev, Lack, Schroeder, Kassian, Connaution, Sauve I imagine they can find one or two...

Hodgson isn't with the Canucks
Kassian can barely score in the AHL
Connauton can't defend
Sauve can't even crack the AHL lineup

awesome !

and obviously I'd only focus on the Feaster era, lol. Why would I care about what a GM that's already fired did?

Kassian can't score in the AHL, yet he's putting up the same amount of points Hodgson did. Right.

Connauton can defend, it's just something he has to improve at.

And I think everyone's in consensus that Suave was a poor pick. He's still a better pick than Mitch Wahl though if you wanna compare. And he's out of the lineup not because of poor play, but because it's a numbers game. Wolves management clearly wants to have their AHL players in the lineup.

And why do you always circle back to the Sutter era? What good does that accomplish? Does that make you feel better about your current GM's poor track record?

Oh that hurts. Critical words about player development from a Flames fan... You have to go back to 2008/Glencross, or 2004/Giordano to find a homegrown player worth mentioning hahaha!!


The majority of your favorite team was formulated by those guys before Feaster - and since Feaster arrived all he's done is add bad contracts. There's an awful lot riding on one Baertschi's shoulders!

And the one player that was able to play regularly in the NHL under the Gillis regime, he traded away! Nice try though.

Bad contracts were already here when Feaster took over. He added players in their prime capable of producing. Yeah, how awful. Try harder when trolling man, not challenging.

I don't see Sauve as a bad pick. He is a solid defensive blueliner, aggressive with a mean streak - he was developing nicely and threatening to crack the Canucks roster when he was hit by a car, severely concussed, and missed months of the 2010 season. He was considered "pretty lucky to be playing after car crash" / "from hood ornament to the NHL|". Sauve is a solid guy who would have made the next step on many other rosters.
Irony - Flames fans making fun of Canucks blueline prospects.
Care to take a few shots at Canucks centers too lol?

So,after five NHL drafts with Gillis at the helm the Canucks don't have one pick that can realistically play for the team.

Spare me the trolling claim - it's pathetic.

I didn't say he had to make it right away. All you have to do is look at drafting history to realize that 95% of 7th round picks don't make the NHL. The odds are greatly against him.

As for Labate, I bet he gets closer to the NHL than DeBlouw. He's probably just going through a sophomore slump right now. He's still got 2 and a half more years at Wisconsin (great hockey program), before we'll be able to see what kind of player he'll be. He's got size and skating going for him. That gives him a leg up.

Our GM has a pretty good track record actually. He may not be the best at drafting, but last time I checked, the Canucks don't have a problem attracting free agents. I think we'll be fine.

Kassian has been benched and has just slightly more than half a PPG to Cody's full PPG.Time to clue in.
Sauve will be an NHL 'er long before Connauton.

4 division titles and 2 president's trophies. I don't think it's hurting us.

In a few years we're going to have an influx of well rounded prospects who are ready to play at the NHL, instead of learning as they go, because the proper amount of time was taken to develop them.

This has to be the worst argument I've seen, lol

Wouldn't it make it more impressive for a rookie on a weaker Michigan Tech team to produce almost PPG while doing almost 60% on his draws, which most are in the defensive zone?

Hodgson at 21, not Hodgson at 22 ;) Clue in. Kassian put up a point a game on that same Rochester team.

Oh but he was injured... Funny how he can have all the excuses in the world, but you don't give any to Kassian. Expect Hodgson to be injured alot, he's injury prone. This is his third major injury playing in the AHL.

As for Connauton, he's ahead of Sauve on the depth chart right now. There's a reason why the Canucks are trying to get him so many minutes in the AHL. Sauve on the other hand isn't even playing.

TSN just released their special: Top 30 Prospects

Canucks were the only Canadian team without a prospect in the top 30.

Time to face the music.Luckily,it's Christmas music and you may have bought some brandy or whiskey by now.

Hodgson got two points tonight and scored the winning goal in the shoot out. PPG + stats now.

Wideman - 5.25 million dollars - 50 points in 2008. If you are claiming Connauton can't defend, wait until you get a whiff of Wideman lol.

TSN just released their special: Top 30 Prospects

Canucks were the only Canadian team without a prospect in the top 30.

Time to face the music.Luckily,it's Christmas music and you may have bought some brandy or whiskey by now.

Hodgson got two points tonight and scored the winning goal in the shoot out. PPG + stats now.


"Just released"? That's oldnews Nit.
And who cares?
Beaten to death in another thread.
Deniro and I seem fairly content with the Canucks.
You're the one who sounds like he needs some high proof - or a new Sabres jersey from Santa.

Hodgson at 21, not Hodgson at 22 ;) Clue in. Kassian put up a point a game on that same Rochester team.


You have to be the slowest learner on the planet or Gillis's plant on this board.

DeNiro ,Hodgson was set back a year by Canucks MISDIAGNOSIS.
He missed most of a year of development so drop your ignorant,silly schtick.
Yeah,and Kassian did it without any injuries,
Reality is today,De Niro and Hodgson is a world beater compared to Kassian.
