At the draft,

Canucks trade their next 3-1st round picks, plus this years 2-3rd round picks ,to whoever has the 1st overall pick.

Unless, of course, the Canucks win the 1st or 2nd overall pick, which is highly unlikely.

Rutherford might offer something like this. Guy is a wildcard.

If a team lands Bedard you don’t trade him. He’s is already debatably the biggest face ( popularity ) in hockey over McJesus and Crosby. This guy is all over social media. He becomes the face of your franchise then you build around him.

Definitely one of the more interesting posts I’ve seen here, kudos Renidrag ?.

I'd want the Habs to so the same thing Renidrag, however, like VB said, I don't think that anyone would trade a guy like Bedard away.

I dont think they are gonna win the lottery, but I really hope that if Arizona was to win, he pulls a Lindros and refuses to sign with that train wreck of a franchise. I know I know. hes the kind of guy that could make this team possibly relevant, but enough is enough. just fold the damn franchise and let a whole new team get involved in a different city. New franchise,

If the Canucks want Bedard, they would have to try something like this, because they traded their own 2023 1st for Hronek, and the 1st they got for Horvat is top 12 protected. If I understand correctly, teams can only move up ten spots under the draft lottery rules. They must be pretty high on Hronek.

I agree with you guys, 1st overall is unlikely to be traded, but there might be some hefty offers made.

The Canucks did not trade there own 1st for Hronek.

The Canucks traded the Islanders 1st, that they got for Horvat.

Actually, scratch that.
It’s the Islander’s pick that the Canucks traded for Hronek, so they do have a shot at Bedard.

BURNER: like many observers, I have no idea what VCR are thinking with their contradictory moves. I definitely do not understand their trade for Hronek.

@vb, renidrag
Yeah, my mistake.

I think the Canucks are trying to retool, not necessarily rebuild. They are building around Pettersson, and appear to be looking for 24-25 yr old, team controlled players.
I heard a rumour that they may try to trade for Barbashev’s rights this summer to sign him long term.

Hronek is only 24 and RHD is there biggest need. Chances are that pick won’t be as good as Hronek.

I am a Leafs fan but would love to see Bedard in Canucks land. Home town boy, etc, etc.

It would be like McDavid coming to Toronto.

I would like to see Bedard in VCR and am also a Leafs fan. A package with Boeser, Demko, A first round pick or two, Miller and OEL should be sufficient?

Whoever gets the 1st pick is not trading it. Bedard is on a higher PPG production than McDavid was in his last year in the juniors and just topped 70 goals which is absolutely insane. Whoever drafts Bedard has a guy with a 100pts+ floor and a very high ceiling, and those players don't come around often.

The only way I could maybe see that pick being traded would be if the team that had the 2nd overall would trade it with a VERY VERY good young player. If VAN gets the 2nd, it would probably need to be something like Hughes and the 2nd overall for the team to pick first to consider it. Bedard is that good.

I’d definitely rather have Bedard then Quinn Hughes and Fantili. Quinn Hughes is a superstar but is probably the most flawed player in the NHL and Fantili looked like a make a wish player compared to Bedard at the world juniors. Like you said a 100 point floor is insane.
