The draft has come and passed and wouldn’t you know it, the Vancouver Canucks took home six new prospects. At the top of the order, Olli Juolevi, taken fifth overall.
There’s the answer to a question that’s been on the minds of Canucks fans since April 29th. Of course, it just as easily could have gone any number of different ways. The thing about that pick was that it was definitely open to scout’s interpretation. That is, you could justify any number of players with the fifth overall selection.
So, I’m asking you, knowing full well how the first four selections shook out — Auston Matthews, Patrik Laine, Pierre-Luc Dubois and Jesse Puljujarvi — how you would’ve handled the fifth overall selection. Get creative. You can trade down, or even trade the pick. Or you can use it on any other player you prefer.
