Shirokov, KHL all-star, is also ahead of Rodin by a mile ...

Current NHLers that were Vancouver draft picks ...

Forwards (10):
Matt Cooke
Daniel Sedin
Henrik Sedin
R.J. Umberger
Ryan Kesler
Mike Brown
Jannik Hansen
Mason Raymond
Michael Grabner
Cody Hodgson

Defensemen (5):
Adrian Aucoin
Mattias Ohlund
Bryan Allen
Kevin Bieksa
Alexander Edler

Goaltenders (1):
Cory Schneider

Non-NHLers in: Jarkko Ruutu (Near PPG in SML, good 4th liner), Sergei Shirokov (KHL All-Star), Brent Sopel (Should still be in the NHL, currently in the KHL), Lukas Mensator (starting goaltender in ELH)

D. Sedin - H. Sedin - J. Hansen
M. Raymond - R. Kesler - M. Grabner
M. Cooke - R. Umberger - M. Brown
J. Ruutu - C. Hodgson - S. Shirokov

A. Edler - K. Bieksa
B. Allen - A. Aucoin
M. Ohlund - B. Sopel

C. Schneider
L. Mensator

Goes to show how brutal our drafting has been over the last 15 years that we can't even field a 20-man team of active NHLers.

Ah, for some reason I thought Cannata was a FA signing like Lack. Honzik was drafted in the 2nd round though, so his potential seems to be higher than Cannata if we are putting weight on draft position.

Screw Matt Cooke, he doesn't even deserve to be on Vancouver's lackluster draft roster
