EXACTLY.

Don't get swayed by the HF logic that a 25th ****ing overall pick is more valuable than a 27 year 5 year NHL pro who chips in 35 points a year and can play a physical game. AND he's locked up for 4 years.

Exactly. Drafting another forward would be silly. Hoping for a great D prospect to go 25th is just as silly.

Ballard for 25th is a great trade for us.

Aren't you guys worried Ballard might decapitate Lou?

We asked, waited patiently and believed and Gillis has rewarded us.

According to LeBrun, probably won't be announced until it gets to our 25th pick. It's going to be a long ~2 hours!

I would love to get one of FLA's 2nd rounders. It may cost nut I'd don't like not selecting for 3 rounds.

I love Mike Gillis <3

Here's hoping Gillis gets us another pick to top off off this day. The draft hasn't even begun, and I'd be happy if the day ended like this, but another pick would be wonderful.

I certainly hope the SW division hasnt inflated Ballard's abilities the way it did for Alberts.

Makes sense. Boston may be interested in Bieksa.

I am extremely happy about this.
But one bad thing is that the Canucks dont get to pick until the 4th round.
Maybe they will trade Bieksa, SOB, or someone else for picks.

Panthers-Canucks deal may not get announced until we get to Vancouver's 25th overall pick ...
