The more embarassing thing for me is that Tambellini was the guy I wanted us to pick on draft day. Kesler was actually 2nd on my list, so when we picked him I was satisfied, but I really wanted Tambo.

One of the few times the Canucks outsmarted me(pre-Gillis).
Don't be too embarassed. From NFITO: When Kesler was drafted I was pretty disappointed... I was very high on Stewart and really wanted to canucks to draft him.

As a species, humans are not very good at predicting the future. What we're good at is being confident that we're good at predicting the future.

Same story today... kind of makes you think people would be less firm in their evaluations of Brendan Gaunce... I was so happy we took him, despite what TSN said about him being a 3rd liner at most in the NHL... yeah we heard that one before, TSN.
