Roberto Luongo hasn’t tweeted since the Canucks’ disastrous 6-1 loss to the Dallas Stars on March 6th, when he sent out a few mildly snarky missives sympathizing with Lack’s plight.

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!
