  1. Canucks don’t need a goalie. It’s the only position they actually have a skilled players and depth at.

  2. Canucks are def not drafting a goalie they have demko and a great prospect in dipietro

  3. I believe you have forgotten about a certain large Swedish defenseman…

  4. Andrew Higgins says

    If the Red Wings can’t land Owen Power, Simon Edvinsson would be a good pick. He’s a guy who can get through the hard-to-maneuver areas. His size would also make him valuable to the Power Play.

  8. John Parham says

    This will be an interesting draft. I believe there will be more busts than usual early and some stars coming out of the later rounds.
