Will Jim B's give-aways of 23 draft picks under his rule come back to haunt the Canucks ?

Gave away 23 picks makes no sense. 

 

What rounds were these? 

For which players? 

How many did he get back in trades? 

 

Title sounds click baity.

did they mention how many he got back?

Why would they, he's gotten more back than he has shipped out so that would impact their point :bigblush:

While watching Donnie & Dhali yesterday, it was mentioned that Jim B has apparently given away 23 draft picks so far under his reign.   The question now becomes; Can the Canucks build up a strong enough organization to win a cup with this approach or, will the short term rewards gained by trading away all these draft picks leave us short and in an eternal "sloppy-second place" type finishes and ongoing retooling/rebuilding due to always being short a few assets in the cupboard?

"Given away" is a ridiculous statement. For the first time in our franchise history we have been able to use our draft picks as trade bait and to sweeten deals. Now we have a solid team less a few pieces on defence, now we can continue to stock our cupboards for the next 3-5 years

For having a front office that's greatest strength is drafting we probably shipped out too many 2nd rounders, but no need to live in the past. Especially seeing picks like Demko and Hoglander in the second. I feel like the end of the first and beginning of the second rounds are when good scouting is like gold.

Obviously you are not serious. 2014 to 2021. Eight years of draft picks at seven rounds per year = 56 picks. Actual number of picks made by JB = 54. Hmmmm.....far cry from 23.

And drafting a great young core, then supplementing them with really high end players via trade, like Miller, Garland, and OEL.  Our team is going to have a great season, and coming 5 years!
