This is a tale of trial and error, failure, determination, and triumph. Oh and fancy advanced statistics. So many fancy statistics.

When the Canucks selected Finnish defenceman Olli Juolevi fifth overall at the 2016 Draft, he became just the sixth Finnish player they'd ever drafted. A number perplexingly low given they've been reasonably successful when they went to that well in the past, with Petri Skriko and Jarkko Ruutu going on to have successful NHL careers -- Jonathan Iilahti, Markus Kankaanpera, and Karri Kivi less so.
I'm of the mind, though, that the Canucks would be wise to strengthen their draft ties to Suomi.

He’s hoping to put his years of experience to good use to make an immediate impression on the coaching staff and management.
