You be the GM. You make the picks!

Recommended Posts

His picks were good in my opinion. I don't have the information he had, scouts, combine, interviews etc. so I can't go and say I wouldn't have chosen some of the people he did. Although I wish we could have got more value on Lack and moved Bieksa for a 2nd or something.

1- Noah Juulsen : Like what I read, legit defensive prospect and cool that he grew up a Canuck fan. Also happy with Brock Boeser though.
3 - Blake Speers : Very hardworking player with a decent skill set and IQ. Defensive specialist with great speed and can put up points. Likely a bottom 6 player but has top six potential.
4 - Dmytro Timashov - Supposed to go late 2nd, early 3rd round. Short at 5'9/5'10 but listed at 192lbs. Scouting reports say he was the most dangerous player in the Q. Was called up to Modo the year before last so he has played in a legit men's league as well. High reward offensive dynamo.
5 - Ryan Pilon - Ranked 24th by CSS. Good size, puts up points, and plays in the WHL. Enough said.
5 - Vladislav Garikov - Big Russian dman. Played a good amount of games in the KHL. Captain of his MHL team and his World Junior's team. An absolute stud defensively - named the best dman at the world juniors despite not scoring a single point.
6 - Lukas Jasek

7 - Loik Leveille. 223Lb defenseman who scored 54 points in 68 games for Cape Breton. Very physical, shot blocker, good skater, hard shot. A bit raw defensively and puts himself out of position and a 96 birthday, but overall an enticing package worth selecting in the 7th round.

I'm just wondering why Benning would draft a RW scorer when he just drafted a RW scorer last year that plays a similar game. Why not try to find a future #1 LW or D?


Also, goalscorers and right handed shots - both very easy assets to like.

These would have been my choices. Will be interesting to look back in a few years just to compare what happened.

1st, number 23 Rasmus Andersson

3rd , number 65 N Roy

4th number 114 Zhukenov (I like this pick)

5th number 144 R Pilon

5th number 149 Radovan Bondra

6th number 174 G Olhaver

7th number 210 L Leveille

Honestly the only picks I'm not entirely sold on are Neill and Gaudette. Neill does seem to have some potential given his reported growth this past season, but I just truly don't see the allure of Gaudette. I would have prefered us to pick up Pilon and Bondra/Estephan instead.

Though, when the only picks you don't like are 5th rounders, then there really isn't too much to comaplin about in that regard.
