Who would you have drafted in 2015?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I was talking to a friend today and we were discussing the past five drafts and talking about who we would have drafted at the time. (We both would have missed out on Petey haha)

2015 was a weird one because we had a lower pick at 23.  I can remember that I was not happy because I had no idea who Boeser even was.  If I had been GM that year I believe we would have ended up with Oliver Kylington (sorry guys!)

 

Can any of you remember who you were hoping to pick at #23 that year?

I can't even remember what I had for breakfast yesterday.

 

Seriously though, because our pick was a lower pick I was probably hoping more for a type of player rather than a specific player.  The only draft eligible guys I typically know much about are the top few picks, plus some of the highly touted WHL guys.  I try not to get too hopeful for a specific player only because you never know what the teams ahead will do.

 

The one guy I remember really hoping the Canucks would pick, but didn't, was Valeri Bure ('92 draft).

If you look at his thread you will see a lot of Konecny, Merkley, Roy, Juulsen, and Kylington. Also a bunch saying thank god no Carlo.

 

also some really dumb posts in hindsight. Where did old desiboi go?

I had Roy for sure. Wanted a defenseman badly.

I wanted Aho because the name always stood out to me the other guy I really wanted was Kylington also the name just really stood out to me. Admittedly I didn't really do a ton of research that year I just wanted JB to either pick a C or a D as the Sedins and Ham Juice were starting to decline.  ^^^ Ya I remember liking Roy too.

Man, Chabot at the 18 spot. We need to unearth a gem like that.

Good thread imo.   Asking what we thought at the time - not what we think in hindsight.

 

I don't exactly recall - I remember being pretty high on Chabot (who went earlier but who I drafted a few times in fantasy around that range - also liked Kylington, Beauvillier) - and Jacob Larsson closer to where we picked (gets a bit obscured when you're drafting for fantasy variables/purposes....)  Probably would have been Larsson among the guys available at 23.....

 

But I do recall @theminister - at the time - bang on with Boeser.

1. Konecny 2. Merekley 3. Boeser 4. Carlo

 

Otherwise I woulda flipped out. (I was in the minority that loved Carlo)

If we’re going all the way back to Benning’s first draft:

 

2014: Ritchie and McCann

2015: Konecny

2016: Tkachuk

2017: Pettersson

2018: Hughes

 

Feel free to do the same, I’d like to see who you guys wanted for each of the past five years

Konecnyor or Roy.

 

I also remember being really high on Aho, but can not recall if that was who I wanted with our first or second round pick.

It was the 2017 draft but I had no idea who this Petterson kid was. I was choked we didnt pick Vilardi. What a goof.

I can't say who I would have picked, but there was a lot of talk about picking Konecny

 

Quite a few, actually.....isn't he Bo's cousin or something?

Ditto. I was 110% sure the Canucks were going to draft Jeremy Roy.
