    Alright. Dahlin, Svechnikov, and Zadina are gone. Miraculously these 7 guys are available to us when we pick. Who are you taking? This is you picking in Jim Benning’s shoes and NOT selecting who you think he’ll take.

    Let me explain why I made this thread:

    Since rankings and mocks are all over the place on the draft order from 4-10 and well beyond that, I want to see who HFCanucks wants to draft if it was our choice. Sure, we did that Mock Draft poll going from 1-20 or so, but by the time we got to 7 a few of the guys were gone. I know personally I was picking specifically as a Mock and who I was thinking the other team would pick so I wanted to give this a go.

    Post your pick, and your ranking of these 7 guys. Not a mock, but of how you pick them for the Vancouver Canucks.

    I’ve moved around and changed my preferences a bit, but I think this is where I stand:

    Bouchard
    Hughes
    Wahlstrom
    Dobson
    Boqvist
    Kotkaniemi
    Tkachuk

    I will let people change their answer on the poll up until the draft.

    Note: If you want to merge this into the draft thread then so be bit, but I feel this serves a purpose. If that wasn’t @jimmythescot’s purpose the whole time then I apologize. Last thing I want is to make a duplicate poll. Either way this will stay open so if people switch their mind.

    I think Hughes and Bouchard are gone by then personally. People keep raving about this Kotkaniemi kid, haven't seen a ton of him but he's really jumped up in the rankings. If Tkachuk is available I think I would want him, we have a lot of good skilled forwards but none of those nitty gritty guys that most teams seem to have. But at the same time Wahlstrom sounds like he has quite the shot and Dobson could be a pretty darn good player. Only one out of that list I don't want is Boqvist, I was high on him a month ago but the more and more I read I think I would rather go with any of the other guys over him.

    My order of preference for who I want the Canucks to pick is:

    Dobson
    Bouchard
    Wahlstrom
    Hughes
    Kotkaniemi
    Smith

    I wouldn't consider Tkachuk (lack of skill) or Boqvist (concussions) for our pick.

    I am going to go with Dobson..He was my pick about a month ago,but I have to admit I've changed my mind about a dozen times since then.

    I am confident that Benning and Brackett will make the right choice.

    My somewhat knowledgeable order of preference would be:

    Hughes
    Wahlstrom
    Dobson
    Bouchard
    Kotkaniemi
    Smith

    Not super bullish on Boqvist and Tkachuk for a variety of reasons.

    From the list:

    Hughes
    Wahlstrom
    Dobson
    Kotkaniemi
    Tkachuk
    Boqvist
    Bouchard

    But I would have Lundestrom, and Kupari ahead of Boqvist. Then Farabee additionally ahead of Bouchard

    I voted Dobson..love his potential.
    Hope he is there when we pick but doubt it.
    1 Buffalo-Dahlin
    2 Carolina--Schvenkov
    3--Mtl--Tkchuck
    4--Ottawa--Zadina or Dobson
    5 Arizona--Dobson or Zadina
    6 Detroit--Hughes or Boqvist
    7 vancouver--Boqvist or Hughes
    This is how I see it going down...

    I want no part of the dmen not named Dahlin, too risky and too much chance of busting. I'd rather trade the pick than take one of those dmen. That said, I would take Wahlstrom, Tkachuk, or Veleno. I believe Veleno will be the guy people wonder a few years from now in redrafts why he didn't go higher especially when he was highly touted at one time. I think he'll destroy the Q next year and lead it in scoring by a mile.

    Dobson
    Boqvist
    Kotkaniemi
    Bouchard

    I think these 6 would be gone Dahlin Svechnikov Zadina Tkachuk Hughes Boqvist.

    Canucks have an option of Wahlstrom Dobson Bouchard and Kotkaniemi. I think they will pick Wahlstrom.

    My guts telling me they prefer one of Hughes or Dobson. I have Hughes slightly ahead , his skill set is more dynamic and the fact that he has played against men and shown well is a bonus. With that said I wouldn't be upset at all with any of the players listed above at #7 even Tkachuk who I feel gets slept on sometimes.

    I don't really like taking D but if it shook out this way I would have to take Bouchard. I think in a few years people will wonder how he fell to #7.

    Wahlstrom is the BPA on the list and he's also my #1 choice @ 7

    Dobson is the only Dman I want @ 7

    If this franchise wants a center then draft Veleno.

    Who do I think Benning will draft...Hughes. He seems to be the player that most fans want us to draft.

    Hughes is where the data points as well. So I wouldn't be surprised if Brackett wants him too. "Speed & skill."
