****ing Love it. Gillis really knows how to develop players. Buying thier own AHL Team, signing everyone they see promise in to ELC, picking up Undrafted players and now we'll have guys like Price, Schroeder, Archibald, Gaunce(?), Jensen, Blomstrand, Grenier, Tommernes, Rodin(?), Sweatt, Polasek, Mallet all playing for the AHL team next year, as opposed to only a few that played regularly this season for the Wolves.

Agree with this. If you can't play the long pass here, you won't succeed here.

Also, Tommernes signing is a good thing. He's done well in a good league.

So far, I think Freisen is the only player the Canucks have signed that doesn't look like at least an AHLer.

Excited to see he finally signed; really curious to see what he can do in the North American game.

Always nice to see your late round keeper league picks turn into something. Hope he does well for you.

That's pretty good. Only truly bad pick is Westerholm. Honzik has potential still IMO. Might sign a contract with our AHL team still, as well.
Yeah, 2011 is looking pretty darn good. Almost all of which, except Westerholm, should turn out to be at least AHL-quality players - and likely even Honzik. The baseline is slowly being established here and that's a good thing compared to what we've seen in the past.

The question is if a player for whom the "right situation" is basically a garbage team that lets a guy spaz around the ice without any real structure to his play can really be called "good."

Anyway, we knew this Tommernes signing was coming, right? It was just waiting on something with the national team or whatever, wasn't it?

Anthony, Tochkin, Rai, Walsky, Gendur, anyone else?

Gendur wasn't a Gillis draft. Neither were Walski or Tochkin. Rai got derailed by injury, and he was a depth pick in a draft Gillis didn't control. He came onto the scene much too late to have input on depth picks.

The only real slip was Anthony.

Wasn't he a 7th round pick? I'd make that pick most of the time. He was a project style pick, once highly touted but ultimately ending up being a bust.

If you're getting a few serviceable AHL guys along with a NHL Caliber each draft you're doing a fantastic job. Especially drafting later than 25 each year.

So far, so good from Gillis in terms of drafting.

Walsky and Tochkin were not Gillis draft picks, but they were signed as free agents by MG.

And as stated, Gendur was a 7th round pick in 2007 - Nonis' final draft as Canucks GM.
