PITB Podcast: Which defenceman should the Canucks pick at the 2018 draft? With Ryan Biech
Ryan Biech is in the house! Or rather, I'm in Ryan Biech's house. The point is, I am joined on the PITB Podcast by Ryan Biech, prospect analyst for Sportsnet 650 and Canucks writer for Canucks Army, The Athletic, and Canucks.com.
We delve into the Canucks' prospect pool, particularly their lack of depth on defence. We talk about the potential of Olli Juolevi, the abundance of prospects with a third-pairing ceiling, and wild cards like Jack Rathbone and Matt Brassard.
One thing is clear: the Canucks need more high-end talent on defence. That likely means taking a defenceman with the seventh overall pick in the 2018 draft.
Who might the Canucks take? I ask Biech about several defencemen that will potentially be available for the Canucks, including Quinn Hughes, Adam Boqvist, Evan Bouchard, and Noah Dobson.
Who do you think the Canucks should pick seventh overall?
