I think our first round pick, can't participate in the actual camp as he's under contract to a KHL team.

 

I'm hoping that he'll get to at least participate in some of the other team building stuff. Grouse grind maybe??? :)

 

Podkolzin is already back home.

He already left for Russia right after the draft.

Benning said at the draft VPod didn't have paperwork necessary to participate in camp and there would be no chance it would get done in time.

He already returned to Russia apparently.

If true, this is indeed significant seeing as though this is at the grassroots level of the organization. Player development is everything in todays NHL (it's always been but the absolute need for roster players in their entry level years has never been more important).

That’s interesting.

 

Wasn’t Scotty at the draft? I seem to remember seeing him at the table and on stage with Pod.

 

Maybe just shuffling positions?

 

Ryan Johnson is already Sr. Director of Player Development. Maybe they just gave Walker a different title?

 

Hard to imagine they brought him to the draft and invited him up on stage for the handshake line just days ago, and now they’re canning him.

I think I'd rather continue on with the charade of him being part of the team, than firing him prior to the draft with extensive knowledge on our draft strategy lol

Maybe he has other options. Agreed to follow through with draft prep and is leaving now that the draft is over. Doesn’t mean he has been fired.

KHL starts earlier than NHL.  Pod will be playing real hockey in an adult league.:towel:

Was odd Pod had to leave right after being drafted. I wonder if there was some paperwork Walker could have filed to cover the canucks in the event they drafted Pod that would have allowed him to stay.

Seems odd he was let go right after this. Did he miss something? Hmm.
