Oh, those were heady days.

Burke's draft record while GM of the Canucks was beyond abysmal. He does deserve ample credit for his wheeling and dealing to get the twins, but beyond that he might as well have packed up shop after the first round every draft.

He got Allen with 4th overall, which isn't bad, but 4th overall is pretty hard to miss. That year he also managed to grab Chubarov and Ruutu in the 2nd and 3rd rounds. And that was pretty much the end of his ability to grab talent from any round beyond the 1st for the rest of his tenure in Vancouver, with the notable exception of Bieksa in 2001. It's a good thing he managed to finally snag talent from a round other than the 1st that year as his ego got in the way of a good 1st round pick in Umberger.

It's pretty astounding that in 6 drafts headed by Burke from 1998 to 2003 he only managed to draft 3 NHL players outside of the 1st round! Also astounding is that only a small handful of the ~55 players he drafted in that time even managed to play in the AHL - and only a few of them were good enough to play successive seasons.

If I owned an NHL team, Brian Burke would not be on my short list of GM's to hire.

Why is that funny? I bet you a considerable chunk of Canucks fans couldn't even properly explain what +/- is.

I thought the funny was that it was explained wrong, as it forgot to mention that the player had to be on the ice when their team scored an even-strength or short-handed goal.

1. We traded a lot of seconds

2. Burke biggest failing draft wise wasn't the picks he took, no gm scouts 5th and 6th rounders, it was not sacking the guys recommending them.

Oh hey look, Honzik's team actually showed up in this game. probably they felt sad for him when they had a piss poor show where they let a wooping 56 shots against from their last game(he was great in that game btw despite letting in 7 goals) . But they cant create scoring chances or play defense to save Honzik's life

I don't think it's helping that Cape Breton is dressing 2 less skaters than required. Carrier isn't playing as well.

McEneny has scored his 5th goal of the year. 2 goals in 2 games. 2-1 KIT right now.

Bellville up 4-2. Gaunce drew a penalty with some hard work and they scored on the PP, no points yet.

Edit:

5-2 now for BEL, Jordan Subban 1G 2A so far tonight.

Looks like the moves helped Belleville.

Hopefully Gaunce is able to continue his hot production, even though his line is probably now the 2nd line

Gaunce with a goal. 7-2 bulls.

The 2nd best defensive team in the league can now score.

Look out OHL.

Corrado with an assist +2 as well.

Quine Is a great add too. Formerly a top 3 pick.

Their top 2 lines are very good. They play stingy and have one of the top goalies in all the CHL.

Should have an extremely long playoff run.

If I owned an NHL team, Brian Burke would not be on my short list of GM's to hire.
Burke was hired 3 days before the 1998 draft after being working for the league in NY for 5 years and doing zero scouting. All he did was rubber-stamp the recommendations of the scouts. He should get zero credit for those picks as that draft was essentially the last draft of the Quinn/Penny era.

Ruutu was also a pure Keenan pick - Keenan went to scout the World Championships at the end of the Canuck season and recommended selecting him.

Take away those 1998 picks, and Burke was 1/37 (Bieksa) in picks after round 1. Absolutely mind-bogglingly bad.

Having said this, this is partly Burke and partly Burke's decision to replace the adequate Penny with the horrific Delorme as head scout.

That's a six game point streak for him now, if I am not mistaken.
