there is probably more to this pick. Maybe Clark was thinking of leaving, who knows. He is a pretty big part of our team (has worked very well with Roberto). If he is happy, then Roberto is happy, and in turn we are happy.

Best optimistic spin I could make.

Well, since he plays like Cloutier, maybe picking him was in the same vein as Marc-Andre Roy and Evan Fuller? Namely, to protect the Euros.

Yea but Cloutier would have been a good 7th round pick.

7th rounder doesnt mean much but when a supposed 2-4th rounder in Reddick is sitting there and we pass on him for what looks to be a nothing pick, you gotta wonder.

Ian Clark just got a big favor from Gillis and the canucks management.

Tambellini must be pissed. First Garth's kid, now Ian's, where's the love for Jeff?

I'm wondering why every team passed on Reddick. It wasn't just the Canucks.

There was obviously something specific about him that was making teams pass(maybe size?). If there's some 'fatal flaw' that scouts think will hold him back from being an NHLer they won't bother drafting a player.

This really pisses me off. I realize it's a 7th round pick but can't we at least pretend to keep things professional? If you want to do Ian Clark a favour bring his kid to rookie camp, don't waste a pick on him.

That's kind of my point. If we're going to complain about picking Clark don't complain because someone else is on the table but noone picked him. It's obvious that something about Reddick scared teams away.

Maybe Gillis believes in numerology, not 'Moneyball'?

Maybe numerology fits into Moneypuck.

Because the Canucks drafted their goalie coaches son in the 7th round?

I think it's much more likely that Schneider backs up Luongo next year, than being dealt because the Canucks drafted the goalie coach's kid in the 7th round.

...well.

I'm glad that instead of ****ing up in the first round, we **** up in the seventh round, as opposed to the other way around in previous years.

For a guy to fall that hard, there has to be something major that the teams are seeing that is making them stay away.
