I'm serious Vilardi will be the best player from the draft. Glass would have been better as well. Benning sucks. 

Vilardi's foot speed is pretty weak. He'd have been a good pick too, but Petterson isn't that far off.

Just accept the fact that he knows more than us

Does he? I wanted Nylander and Tkatchuk. I wanted Vilardi this year. Petterson should have gone 8-10th.

I AM EXCITED.

 

A bit riskier than Glass, but Petterson has such a high offensive ceiling. I'm peeing myself I'm so happy.

Highest offensive ceiling in the draft. But boy does he need to bulk up ^_^

This just makes the Virtanen pick look that much worse.  We could of had Nylander + Glass now we have Petterson + Virtanen

lmao. that's all.

exactly this, wish we had Nylander but lets just be happy that we see the franchise values elite skill over "meat and potatoes"

Glass comparison:  Schieffle and Linden

Vilardi Comparison:  Getzlaf and Tavares

 

Petterson, you're going to be at minimum a 4 year project and you're going to be weighed against them for the next 2 decades.

 

Good luck, welcome to Vancouver

 

Too bad Benning will be long gone before Petterson makes the team.

it's the truth. We clearly didn't value elite skill at the time, or we would have taken Nylander.

Petterson has elite skill. Overjoyed to see them take this direction.

So do most of them, but yeah, he's pretty small.

 

Glass is a wiry dude though too.

I guess there's always going to be someone bitter, thinking they know more than everyone else, at the start of these threads.:rolleyes:
