Canucks sign Dan Gendur

As per Canucks.Com

Canucks have signed Dan Gendur, no terms disclosed. Also, Jason Jaffray, Mark Cullen and James Sharrow all cleared waivers and will report to the Manitoba Moose training camp.

Nice. Easily the most comfortable and controlled looking player this preseason (everyone else played a bit nervous or tried to do a bit too much or not enough-- Gendur looked like he knew exactly how he needed to play and was in midseason form)

Agreed with all said. Hope Gendur sticks with the Moose this year and is a solid offensive contributor.

Gendur has played very well in the pre-season. I think he's earned a two way contract in the very least.

Gendur was a Delmore pick wasn't he? I was impressed with Gendur and I see him being a Wes Walz type of guy.

The best of the Canucks 2007 draft at this point in time.

Patrick White done? I doubt he busts like Nathan Smith... but I haven't see anything even close to being a top two center.

I have wondered how White would measure up if he were in the CHL rather than NCAA.

i agree. Congrats to the Victoria boy. NOt alot of people get the chance to sign a pro contract with an NHL team. He looked pretty good, solid, scored a nice tying goal against Edmonton. Very good pick for a 7th rounder. Imagine if he became better then our first 2 picks of the year.....

It's kind of difficult to analyze which scout vouched for which player. From what I can tell fans around here have classified any North American player as a Delorme pick and any European player as a Gradin pick. We have more than two scouts. From the interviews with Delorme he made it seem like he relies heavily on other scouts input and opinions.

From what I understand, Delorme spends most of his time scouting the WHL around Vancouver (which would probably include the Island and Washington). Like you say, it's tough to say which scout had a say in a particular player, but Canuck picks basically come down to WHL, US, QMJHL, or Gradin.

So White shouldn't be labeled a Delorme pick? To go with this, here's a list of all of the WHL or western region drafted players. For the sake of argument we'll call them Delorme picks.

I'm going from 2004 onwards.
2004
Andrew Sarauer - 125 - BCHL
David Shulz - 254 - WHL
2005
Mason Raymond - 51 - AJHL
Matt Butcher - 138 - BCHL
2006
Michael Grabner - 14 - WHL
Evan Fuller - 197 - WHL
2007
Taylor Ellington - 33 - WHL
Dan Gendur - 206 - WHL
2008
Prabh Rai - 131 - WHL
Morgan Clark - 191 - WHL

These are guys that we can be 100% sure of being Delorme picks. Other guys probably have significant from our other scouts.

Yep. Well, Delorme, as head scout, probably flys around and checks out a lot of top prospects (especially first round picks) so he's probably had input on them, but I'm sure he watches the WHL the most and has the most say with those players.

I wouldn't really call that one a "Delorme pick" - it seems to me that's more a case of a "nepotism type" pick.

You forgot Sergei Chibisov, though Gillis is moving a bit away from that. He's been picking some pretty nice ones too, though they haven't been moving over - Kablukov, Shirokov.

Aye, wonder if he's ever visited Europe to scout picks.

I distinctly recall Evan Fuller being a "Snepts" pick

Wes Walz, wow I hope you are right, unfortunately I haven't seen Gendur play yet. Are you aware that Wes Walz was probably the fastest player in the NHL?
