I don't get why everyone is crying about the trade, we needed to lose a goalie. I bet as soon as he turns into a half decent player everyone will ride his d*ck

I like him, but we should have gotten more for Schneider. But hey, we still have Luo and as long as Horvat produces, I guess it can work out.

"We don't need another centre".

Henrik Sedin is going to be 33 years old by next season. Kesler is turning 29 and has suffered three major injuries in the last two years. Fans complain so hard about the core aging and then we flip tables when the Canucks try to get younger.

What the hell do you people want?

I'm absolutely fine with this. Sure we could have gotten a bit more but Bob Mackenzie said Bo is the steal of the draft and I can't wait to see how he does next season.

We now have a clear #1 goalie and still have Edler to trade.

What would make this day even better is if Kerby Rychel falls to 24th!!

Nichuskin was the pick we should have made here. Horvat is good, but man we just missed out on the BPA.

This is a guy that I see being our captain once Hank retires. Maybe Kess will get the 'C' for a few years if he's still around, but if not, or when Kess retires, I see Horvat being our captain (assuming he pans out).

I have a feeling that the Canucks traded Schneider for the ninth overall straight up is because he had to clear cap space so he can make the return for Edler more significant.

Love the pick, the trade could've been better though. But Horvat is the real deal, he was the definition of clutch for London in the playoffs, exactly the kind of player we need to progress. With Horvat and Gaunce on board, our future at centre ice looks a lot more promising.

Pretty much this. I'm really happy with the pick, but I think the trade could've brought more in return. More than that, I have no clue what Gillis is planning right now. Are we going with a youth movement now? I'd be okay with that if Gillis would just say that's what he's doing...

Not a flashy player, just an in-front-of-the-net, greasy type of goal scorer... me likey! Great skater too.

Gillis et al needed to clear cap space, we still have Lou, Lack, Canata, etc, this trade works.

I know people are screaming that we could have gotten more, but for very little more I would not want Schneids going to a division rival.

All the best to Schneids out east, thank Science we don't have to face him!!

He's the kind of player we need and the player that teams win cups with. I was a big Nichushkin fan but after looking closely at Horvat I feel that this will be the right call in the end. Great pick!

Beautiful pick...Pierre said he will be the steal of the draft. He also said that about Erik Karlsson and Zach Parise.

Also some thought he could go as high as 4th overall.

This player scores clutch goals, plays a 200 foot game, and has great leadership qualities about him. I love this pick, and if he develops into a Bergeron/Kesler type player, with utility in all situations, that will be fantastic for us.

I like many others feel we could have got more, potentially from the flyers even (Couturier + 11th), but at the end of the day, he pulled the trigger now and avoided an even more unfortunate goaltending situation.
