duh, from the link you provided ... the "mock draft 2015" was produced by Bill Placzek. Just who the HELL is this " Bill Placzek?"

Am I mad bro? Really? LOL! I don't get mad on here, there's no point.....just leads to meltdowns.

No the link I provided wasn't supposed to be serious. In fact I barely glanced at it. I google searched, clicked on it, made sure it was actually 2015 and not 2014, then linked it. Took me all of 30 seconds. The point was just to placate a nuisance. But I'm glad you followed up to check on the guy that posted it.....I didn't think it was worth the time. And no, I can't get serious. Getting serious in a reply to the redundant drivel that you post is actually almost worth of a real life LOL.....almost.



Oh, and just to be clear, that nuisance I was attempting to placate.....that was you. Looks like it didn't work.

duh, that's WAS the point. Blob obviously knew the results would be a shitty "Mock Draft" from some website and author that nobody heard of ... so he, duh, obfuscated and tried to change the topic and not be a stand up Blob and apologize for his faux pas on misreading my comments. So disrespectful!

I don't think no matter how hard they try, even if they could re-hire the late Bill Laforge, could they finish with the worst record next season to essentially guarantee themselves one of two future "superstars." 8-)

Here's item two - the 2015 NHL entry draft, to be known as the Conor McDavid-Jack Eichel sweepstakes.

McDavid and Eichel are two so-called "franchise-changers". The NHL teams that land them won't just be better, they may succeed for many years to come solely because of them.

2015 shaping up as battle between McDavid, Eichel

Friday, 03.28.2014 / 11:24 AM
By Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer
In a draft that looks to be loaded with offensive and defensive talent across the board, there are two headliners starring at center for their respective teams in Connor McDavid of the Erie Otters in the Ontario Hockey League and Jack Eichel of the United States Under-18 National Team Development Program in the United States Hockey League.

.

NHL.com asked nine scouts in attendance at NHL Central Scouting's final meetings this week for their personal choice between the two. The impromptu poll had McDavid earning a slim 5-4 victory.

USA's Jack Eichel has eyes on 2015 top prize
Kevin Allen, USA TODAY Sports 12:58 a.m. EDT April 9, 2014
"This could be like (Alex) Ovechkin and Evgeni Malkin going one and two," said former Flames general manager Craig Button, now a paid draft analyst.

Can Jack Eichel beat Connor McDavid in 2015?
By: Ryan Kennedy on February 21, 2014
The second path is dogma. For example, Connor McDavid has to go first overall in 2015, right?

According to several NHL scouts, that may not be the case anymore.

“I would take Jack Eichel, personally,” said one.

30 Thoughts: Changing odds in NHL draft lottery
By Elliotte Friedman
Posted: Monday, March 17, 2014 | 11:26 AM
As we head towards a 2015 draft with two talents that have scouts drooling -- Jack Eichel and Connor McDavid -- the NHL is considering a system that could see the lottery going beyond just the No. 1 overall choice.
So, duh, let's see ... Betamax cites not one, not two, not three, not four, but five credible hockey websites that hockey fans have actually heard of and respect ... while Blob effectively pulls a "No Mas" when asked to back his "opinion" he duh, borrowed from some non-descript NHL Mock Draft website.

LOL.

That says it all. :mex:

Well, Blob -- there's a difference between can't miss "Superstars", "Stars" and the, "Role" players in hockey and in social media.

Blob, I know you've been a long time poster on these, duh, old school canucks messageboards. A, "role" player journeyman if you will. That's why you can't, duh, exactly relate to a superstar caliber poster in the present like Betamax, or in the past like, duh what, other old school posters' Strangelove and ODB have quoted in their sigs. Although, I would point out that said poster is now "washed up" and a "has been" -- at least that poster was not a "never was" like you are. :(

No disrespect, muchacho, because, we all can't be superstars! :mex:

Hey Betamax, one of your links (Friedman's story about potentially changing the draft lottery/odds) supports your "there are two top prospects" claim but seriously undermines your original "there's no way the Canucks could get one of them" claim.

I mean, if you care about people being able to support their claims that might be an issue.

It's pretty obvious that McDavid/Eichel are the consensus 1-2 picks heading into next years draft. But it IS supposed to be one of the deepest drafts in a long time. So while you might wind up with an Ovechkin/Malkin 1-2 punch, maybe instead of Barker/Ladd/Wheeler follow-up you wind up with guys like Horton, Vanek, Suter, Phaneuf etc. in the top-10. A guy like Matthew Barzal could easily be a franchise player. Dylan Strome put up similar numbers in his first OHL season as Sam Bennett, who is right at the top of this years draft class. Travis Konecny was over a PPG as a 16 year old, and he might go around 10th... it's an extremely deep draft, which I think was all Blob was saying... There could be several franchise players coming out of it.

Either way, the Canucks would have to be REAL bad to end up with one of the top-2 picks. Unless the draft lottery changes substantially, or GMJB gets rid of EVERYONE, I don't see how the Canucks are even worse than last year... maybe if the goaltending completely implodes.

Oh please, dave, spare me your rhetoric. There's a big difference between speculation and proposals and what the reality of the situation currently is. I'm operating on the premise that things will stay the same. Until things actually change it would be premature to get your hopes up, cyber bro. :mex:

I think it could be similar to the 2008 Draft. Two consensus top picks in Stamkos and Doughty ... with a bunch of other high quality players that have the potential to be franchise players. At least two others right now is in the discussion of being in the Stamkos or Doughty caliber franchise types ... i..e Karlsson and you could put Pietrangelo at that level.

But still, it was a virtual no brainer, can't miss with a Stamkos or Doughty pick to be "superstar" franchise players, while there were some doubts on the others whether the others had BEYOND "star" level players to reach a franchise caliber player. So there was some "luck" in play with the other picks beyond the top two.

While even the Canucks' scouting staff would have a great draft if they could pick in the top 2, because the chance of f'king things up was virtually nil. Beyond that, there were some landmines which I wouldn't put it past the Canucks' to step on ... if we go by history. :mex:

He got more comfortable as the press conference went on. He wants to be more uptempo, and intends to make the playoffs every year (i.e. no tear it apart rebuild).
Benning didn't look like he likes the spotlight for sure, he's a pure hockey guy and it looks like Trev will be more of the PR/media guy. It might be a good match. It seems like all Benning wants to do is scout players and find guys who he thinks will improve the team, he's basically a chief scout who now has GM authority.

Few thoughts about what he said:

1) he said he likes the core and wants the Canucks to play that up tempo game and have that swagger again. He wants to make the playoffs every year. I know this is coming from the guy who advocated to move guys like Kessel, Raycroft and Seguin. Who knows if this is what he is really thinking, we'll definitely see as the team shapes up for training camp. Maybe after he sees our core players play for like 40+ games, he might have a different opinion. I dunno, I just fear if we keep trying to make the playoffs every year, we'll get stuck in the middle (kind of like Calgary the last few years), always trying to make the playoffs, but not good enuff to make it and not crappy enuff to get the top picks.

2) he said he's willing to approach players with NTC if the player doesn't really fit what the organization is trying to accomplish. That was a bit refreshing to hear, kind of contradicted Trev on that stand point.

3) he wants to build a 4 line team, play 6 D, and wants the bottom six guys to be more gritty and wear teams down. That sounds nice and we had some forwards who kind of fit that profile before (ie: Torres, Weiser, LapDawg), but our former coaches/GM didn't play em much and moved em out. There are some players out there who can play that role (some proven, some who just need a chance), hopefully Benning can find em and bring more of those type of guys back. We have a few guys in the organization who maybe able to step in that role as well (ie - Lain, Archibald, Gaunce and BoHo), it'll be interesting to see what Benning & Co does the year or so.
