Didn’t the Canucks draft a guy who was on crutches?

Irony is, Daigneault ended up playing just under 900 NHL games in his career (winning one Cup as a player).  Not a great player but had a failry decent NHL career.  Maybe we should draft more guys on crutches.:lol:

It's making a point...but okay then Dirtman

Just joking around man, I take every opportunity to emulate the great AV.

But anyways, I'm really happy we still have MacEwan. I know not everyone is super high on him but I love the guy.

Their logo is awful. Colours look nice, but yeah. That logo is arguably the worst in the league.

Yeah to me the logo was lazy! They had so much potential with the name Kraken and that was the best they could come up with?

Gotta wonder if Benning made a deal for the goalie Vanacek. Im thinking Clark could do wonders with him.


Shocked that they didn’t pick Oshie from the Caps. Hakstol was his coach in college.


Holtby with 1 mil retained for Vanacek? Still saves us 2.6 mil.

Teams will just wait for Jake to hit the waiver wire. 

Benning has hung in there forever with this guy, desperate to have his first round draft pick finally mature & round into shape.


Neither of those options seems likely to happen tho’, sigh.

I wonder how Carey Price feels about staying in Montreal? 


Some surprising picks in that list - not sure the Kraken will be quite as good as I was anticipating - they passed on some pretty notable players....

But you have to wonder if/what deals they made- the guys they may be getting as a result of not taking particular players.... I find picks like Geekie to be interesting (with Bean available) - but I respect Ron Francis as a GM.  Seems to be a lot of range in the rumours - from no deals made to quite a few of them....
