NHL Trade Deadline
« on: January 31, 2019, 09:44:40 am »
It's fast approaching. It could get interesting. My team, the Winnipeg Jets picked up Paul Stastny last season, and he made the perfect #2C, and was an integral part of the Jets run to the Conference Final. This year, the Jets again find themselves in need of a #2C. What will the Jets do to gear up for the post season? Only time will tell.

Love to see the Canucks get a top pick, they have never had a#1 and I think the only time they had a #2 was their first year. Every time they get in a lottery they lose out end end up picking lower than they finished.

It must be comforting though that Petterson would surely be drafted first in a 2017 redraft. That's really all that matters.

The Canucks had the #2 pick in 1999. They traded up to get the #3 pick as the Sedin twins wanted to play together.

I was hoping to have Petterson for my draft pool, but ended up with Dahlin, in terms of rookies.

So two #2 picks in 49 years and no #1's

I think everybody would rather have the guy who turns out to be the real #1 pick once he starts playing in the NHL (e.g., Petterson) than the actual #1 pick. Remember Nail Yakupov.

I agree, Edmonton has had four #1's in the last nine years. Some good players but other than McDavid, how would you rate them. Pavel Bure was picked #113 but it would be nice to have a #1 in a good draft year, just once. Every time Vancouver gets in a draft lottery it seems to wind up worse than if it drafted according to where it finished.

Edmonton: the place where #1 picks go to die.

Interesting story about Pavel Bure, is that the Jets,Oilers,and Red Wings wanted to draft him in 1989, but we're told he was ineligible. The Canucks drafted him anyway, and founder documents that showed Bure had played in enough National team games to be drafted. Several clubs filed complaints with the league over Bure's status, but to no avail.

pleeeese! I believe this board aspires to troll-free posting. One #1 that didn't meet expectations/promise doesn't qualify your statement.

The Canucks took a gamble and it payed off.

It isn't trolling when the majority of Edmontonians feel the exact same way. Ask any Oilers fan what he feels about management since Katz bought the team in 2008. Die hard Oilers fans didn't plaster the city with billboards demanding a change in management to troll.

Stick to a subject you have knowledge about, Waldo.

ya, ya - your Trumpian use of superlatives/exaggeration has (already) been noted! But hey now, to your referenced 2008/Katz ownership and Oiler fans, how many games haven't been sellouts?  ;D

so... just what is your benchmark reference(s) for "#1 picks going to die"? Historically, there's no shortage of #1 picks that haven't met expectations... if you knew anything about the sport, you'd know that the Yakupov pick can't be attributed to a management want - that's entirely on Katz as he's the guy who pushed for him. If you want to whine about owners over-stepping management domain, that's another discussion; one that doesn't align with/support your current diatribe.

wait now, are you speaking to #1 picks being paid huuuuge/bigly in their death marches? (note the waldo use of Trumpian language in an attempt to bond)! Are you talking about the generational #1 pick... cause you're using a very short duration to measure anything on that pick - notwithstanding what the long-term signing of McDavid has meant in terms of cap implications. Being the neophyte you clearly are, would you like the waldo to explain the salary cap to you - and the implications of what bumping up against the cap means/influences? So you're down to 2 #1 picks to attempt to rationalize your nonsense... please proceed to explain your puffery - please proceed, governor!
