2015 - Boeser

2016 - Juolevi (Tkachuk was available)

2017 - Pettersson

2018 - Hughes

 

Whoever says we haven't been lucky at the draft is not seeing the whole picture.  In the last 4 drafts we've gotten 3 legit all stars and could have had 4 if we took a player that was actually available at our spot.  

 

We will get lucky again this year.  Either we get one of the top 2 picks or Benning will pick a gem at #9 or #10.

 

Remember we have history at the #9 pick.  BO...

Someone should really calculate the exact probability of dropping back in the draft 4 years in a row given our odds. 

I think it is 100% ::D

Ok......silly question here...

 

So at present it is Edmonton 8th, Vancouver 9th

So after the lottery, if still in the same position

Could Vancouver trade their 9th + their 3rd for the 8th

I mean, it probably won't matter to Edmonton in terms of choice

But if Vancouver's plan is to move up further, it would help

 

It would be nice to get to 6th OA

 

If we are not getting 1, 2 or 3...I want Dach

How about:

 

1 OA: EDM

2 OA: CHI

3 OA: LAK

Watch the Rangers come in and snipe Hughes.

Thats not luck. Thats drafting ability. Luck is landing first or second overall to take matthews mcdavid eichel or laine. 

 

Dont hear many people calling tampa lucking for plucking alot their roster late. 

We were LUCKY that Boeser fell to us at #23.  Remember when Benning kept saying why hasn't anyone taken Boeser?  We were LUCKY that nobody was smart enough to scout Pettersson like we did and he fell to us at #5.  We were LUCKY that Detroit took Zadina instead of Hughes.

 

That is called LUCK my friend...

Because it was only pure "luck" that we got Boeser and Pettersson, meanwhile Juolevi hasn't even played an NHL game yet?  Two "lucky" picks and the other was "stupid"?

 

Expect better from Bob than this tripe.  With Pratt gone, Is he applying for a TMZ position?

Why would we want to do that?  We know Edmonton will take the wrong player anyways, so no point in helping them out by giving them a 3rd round pick to screw up at #10...  ^_^

Nah man. Not everything in the world is luck. Hard work. The right hires. Preparation. By our scouting team.

Yes I totally agree with that.  The right hires and preparation is what allowed us to draft such quality players at lower drafting positions.  However, we did still need some luck to have those players fall to us, especially Boeser.  It was almost an act of God really that Boeser was still available at #23, even Benning couldn't believe it...

Unlucky at the draft lottery. Lucky (or skilled?) at the draft.

 

Two different things.

lets hope it works out again this year, if we dont drop 1-3.

Top 3 is nice for home fans since the draft is in Vancouver. But i trust JB. BB was not even top 10.

Like I said before if we move down again in the draft Benning should pick up his chair and throw it across the room.

We’re not lucky with our drafting position, that’s what we’re talking about.
