2012 NHL Entry Draft: Matt’s Mock Draft

Matt Lee

Matt Lee has been a Canucks follower and a prototypical Canadian for years; it started on the streets by playing road hockey before and after Vancouver Canucks games and it's brought him here. After graduating from SFU with a BA in Communications and a minor in History while serving as the student newspaper's sports editor for two years, Matt is now a student at BCIT's Broadcast Journalism program in hopes of becoming a sports broadcaster.

    The Canucks needs are for more North American talent. Back yard in the W perhaps (grit) comes to mind..Just saying..

  2. Is there a player that better fits, Craig?  I’m of the belief the team takes the best player who provides the best fit.

  3. Matt Lee says:

     Craig, I don’t disagree with more North American talent.

    However, if you look at the Canucks’ track record from drafting in the WHL, they’ve been VERY bad. I’m not sure who exactly is scouting in the W, but the last five WHL selections were Prab Rai and Morgan Clark (2008), Taylor Ellington and Dan Gendur (2007), and Michael Grabner (2006), and Grabner wasn’t even North American.

    Many writers in these mock drafts are showing the Rangers selecting Stefan Matteau in the 1st round. Although its a possibility, I believe the Rangers will look for a player with more offensive skill set as Matteau is limited on the offensive side. The Rangers have enough power forwards (Krieder, JT Miller, Fogarty) in their system. Time for the Rangers to select an elite offensive sniper.
