Do you recall Benning as a player for the Canucks ? That would answer your question.

Haven't we done enough for the Flames already after passing on Matthew Tkachuk? I'm still hopeful that Olli Juolevi was smart draft but it's painful to watch how good Matthew Tkachuk has been. His grit and scoring touch was exactly what the Canucks needed but for some misguided reason, Benning passed him to the Flames. Not a wise draft in my opinion but time will tell.

Then there are the other trades. We got Baertschi and you drafted Rasmus Andersson with the Canuck pick. Sven scored 18 and looks like he'll be a top 6 forward, Rasmus looks like he'll be a good top 4 defender so that trade was a wash IMHO.

Then there is the Granlund for Hunter Shinkaruk trade. That one has to be considered a win for the Canucks with Granlund scoring 19 in 69 games last year and Hunter struggling bad.

All in all both teams have done each other some favours but have to give your Flames the edge overall because even if Olli Juolevi turns out to be an NHL'er, Matthew Tkachuk should be a Canuck. :cry:

Canucks are 4 points out of having worse record in NHL in 2017-18 season, of course on flip side if they can achieve having the worst record. They get the best chance at highest draft pick.

I hate to be a glass is half empty kind of fan but I fully expect the Canucks to drop 3 places in the draft lottery for yet another year.

Top pick at this years entry draft has been compared to Erik Karlsson of Ottawa.

Rasmus Dahlin, if that comparison is correct then he would be someone that a team (any team) could build around.

Bottom 14 teams & their percentage chance of winning the draft lottery (so #1 is worst team):
1) 20.0% Currently Arizona
2) 13.5% Currently Buffalo
3) 11.5% Currently Vancouver
4) 9.5% Currently Ottawa
5) 8.5% Currently Montreal
6) 7.5%
7) 6.5%
8) 6.0%
9) 5.0%
10) 3.5%
11) 3.0%
12) 2.5%
13) 2.0%
14) 1.0%

Added later: there is another Tkachuk (in top 5 entry picks) who is consider better then Mathew

Well, there are absolutely no 4 leaf clovers within Canucks organization.
