I thought it was crazy he wasn't on in the first place.  It would be an awesome world juniors if we had 2 or 3 guys on Canada and 2 on Sweden.

Watched a lot of this guy in Kelowna this year. I thought he would have been a dark horse to leap into the top 15 with how wide open the draft was. A lot of really average C's displaced a really good Right Shot RW'r. I would have thrown rocks at my house if we woulda skipped him.

I just heard his name spoke out loud during play by play. Sounds alarmingly  like colon.. years and years of hearing "there's a hard shot by colon" are ahead of me.

being a rockets fan, i was beyond elated when Lind got drafted by Vancouver. .. he easily was one of the best Rockets last year and can;t wait to see how he grows in the future!

If there are no injuries and he doesn't make the WJC team, I can see Lind scoring 100 points this year. The Canucks haven't had a prospect score at least 100 points in major junior since Brandon Reid did it back in 2000-2001.

Will be great having you two giving us 1st hand info on how Cole is doing this season!

 

I've read that one of his best qualities is his high IQ and that he is very trainable.  He takes information in and quickly adapts his game (his development has and should continue to be improve each year).

 

I was surprised to learn that he is quite the hitter and forechecker as well.

Yeah he's a very smart player. Very good at moving the puck up and being in position for the pass. Could definitely make the WJC roster especially if he adds some strength and explosiveness over the summer.

Great news. Linds best quality I can see is his hockey sense, he's always in good position to unleash his deceptive shot. This Could be the most fun WJC for Canucks fans in recent memory if Lind , Jonah and Petterson all make their respective teams. Gunnerson could make Sweden as well right?

This confirms what I posted on draft day - all lists I had seen showed him a lock to be an invite and even penciled into the top 9 already - e.g. he has a spot to lose.

Gunnarsson will be too old to play in the world juniors this season. He played for Sweden last season though.

 

Add Dipietro to the list of possible players. He'll likely challenge Carter Hart for the net.

I think Gunnerson is too old. You forgot to mention Juolevi. Lockwood also has a chance to make the U.S. team. And I expect Di Pietro to make the Canadian team.

 

Could be the best Canuck showing at the WJC in, like, forever.

The great Dane Fox did it while he was signed to us.
