Remembering that I wanted Severson instead of the abysmal Mallet, placing my draft choices for the Canucks this year to see how I do:
5- Cody Glass- Fast, High IQ center who gives it his all on both ends. Biased but he would be a fantastic compliment to Bo down the middle.
33- Grant Mismash- Fantastic shot, another high IQ forward. Shattuck-NTDP-North Dakota is an amazing pedigree, shows the ability and coaching he has received to get the most out of his game.
55- Max Gildon. Was a phenom as a youth player in Dallas, he isn't as dominant as Werenski and Hanifin were at the NTDP but he has potential to be a very good defender. Solid all around, and shows potential to grow, just needs a patient NHL team.
64- Jonas Rondbjerg. High work ethic, energy Danish winger. Sound familiar? Upside might not be top 6, but speed and two way ability should make him an NHLer.
95- Rickard Hugg. Swedish center who's already had a taste of the SHL after excelling in the J20 league and internationally as the captain of the Swedish U18 team. Two way ability and versatility to play wing.
112-Scott Walford. Local kid, solid two way guy. At this point its anyone's guess where the draft goes but you can never have too many defenders.
188-Sebastian Aho. Swedish defenseman that has been terrific over there but no NHL team wants to touch him. Last year of eligibility.
