Somehow we've reached the end of April already. No idea why, but most of it seems like a blur in my mind...
Anyway, let us write a four line poem about: Lady Luck.
The Canucks finished the regular season out of the playoffs, with the third-worst record in the league. As far as the entry draft for next year goes, that gave them a chance to pick anywhere from first overall to sixth. The NHL did their draft lottery this evening and Vancouver ended up with the fifth pick.
A little disappointing, considering the players expected to be chosen with the first three picks are all pretty good bets to be future superstars, but the draft seems to be deep enough that they should still get a high quality prospect in the fifth slot.
Still would have been nice if Lady Luck had gifted them the first overall pick, especially after a season like this one.
And not at all mean;
But when she's with you,
It still makes me green...
