Report: Canucks Also Won’t Sign 2015 Draft Pick Tate Olson

Okay, this one makes considerably less sense. A few hours ago, I published an article passing on information indicating that the Canucks were not intending to sign 2015 5th round pick Carl Neill. Just as I hit publish, it was brought to my attention that they apparently aren’t intending to say 2015 7th round draft pick…
