They said on tv that he slipped probably 20 spots because lots of teams had concerns about off ice issues with him.

Wow, never knew about that.   Usually with those things where there is smoke there is fire, unfortunately.    I know Benning seems to value character VERY highly so it was a lock he wasn't coming to the Canucks in their minds I guess.   This was kept pretty quiet - at least to ears I know about.

Wilde has issues off the ice. Woo the right pick

Thanks, I was wondering why Wilde fell so far when he was expected by most (I think) to go in the mid-1st round.

 

I said last night that I would be delighted to get Samuelsson or Wilde, happy with McIsaac, and okay with Woo. Samuelsson went first in the second round and McIsaac went just before the Canucks picked. And if Wilde has character issues, then Woo looks like the right choice.

Seems to keep it simple offensively. Good at getting the puck on net quickly, that will serve him well. I like this pick. Maybe a Bieksa-like guy for us down the road?

Mean, physical, smooth skating defenseman with an offensive upside. The ideal Quinn Hughes partner. 

 

Juolevi, Hughes, now Woo. Our defense is really shaping up.

Seen a few posters talk about his concussion issues, but I haven’t found any info regarding it. Anyone have insights? I only see a shoulder injury.
