PITB’s NHL Draft Liveblog Extravaganza

Tonight is the night when the past is forgotten and all that matters is the future. The NHL Draft is all about optimism and hope. Check your cynicism at the door and dream big, because picking well at the draft can completely change a team’s fortunes. The Vancouver Canucks will pick 26th overall in the first round, which isn’t quite as exciting as picking in the top-10, but still gives them an opportunity to pick up a future star.

Will they pick Tomas Hertl? Martin Frk? Phillip Di Giuseppe? Some other, less awesomely-named prospect? We don’t know. Maybe Mike Gillis will trade the pick. Or Luongo. Or Schneider! OR EVERYONE!

Whatever happens, PITB will be there. Join us at 4:00 pm to chat about all of the craziness (or boringness) that ensues this evening. If you’ve joined any of our other liveblogs, you’ll know that the chances of us staying on topic are slim to none, but we will have a lot of fun.

    Calling it right now, trading Schneider and Luongo and probably our first Bryzgalov. We might have to throw in Lack.

    Toronto acquires Rick Nash, Bobby Ryan, and Jordan Staal… then trades them to Vancouver for Luongo, Raymond, and Ballard.

    I’ll put 100 BulieBucks™ on Raymond, Ballard and a 3rd-round pick for Nail Yakupov.

    After our 1st round pick Lu is still a Nuck. Can Samjam99 be wrong?

    Brendan Gaunce = Trevor Linden

    Same strengths, incredible work ethic and character, but will never be fast enough to play like Nail Yakupov (Pavel Bure).

    If Kessler doesn’t inherit the C after Henrik, this kid is a potential captain.
