For Canucks, thinking big-picture means building patiently through the draft
June 21 2018
Sportsnet's John Shannon joins Sat and Alex in person at the NHL Draft in Dallas to talk about potential trade floor deals depending on the number of first-round picks teams have. He ran into the Islanders new GM and says of him: Lou Lamoriello has a plan. The Canucks should be thinking big picture, which begins with building through the draft. The Senators indicate they will keep their no. 4 pick, as they should. Matt Duchene is in, Erik Karlsson is a question mark. "We don't have an indication one way or another." Certainly however, moving Mike Hoffman was a message for Karlsson. Speaking of... More hockey teams need better human resources management, fitting of the corporations they are. "The macho side of sport," he says, can interfere with emotional health. "The only way you're going to be better is to admit you have a fault."
