If only Gillis had known that Theodore was going to be picked two spots later and thus should have been the player taken under a "positional need" scheme. Or for us Canucks fans, if only Gillis' idea of the BPA had been Marko Dano who after 30 games in the NHL looked good enough to be a major part of the package that landed a 22 year old star player in Brandon Saad.RoyalDude wrote:That's what I'm saying IN, Gillis went with the BPA on your boi Shinky, even ignoring the massive warning signs of why said player was falling like a rock in the rankings like no other. That time he should have chose to draft by need i.e.- Theodore, especially considering only drafting one defenceman - Sauve,'in the top two rounds of his 5 previous drafts as your Canuck GM. I agree about drafting by need sometimes. The BPA theory did work with the Cassels pick as it was quite obvious that we did not need another young centre at the time when we just drafted Horvat and already had Schroeder and Gaunce in the system
By the way, any regrets about not taking Haydn Fleury at 6 last year, Dude?
