    Hey guys, I wanted to discuss some recent comments by J.D. Burke on TSN in Vancouver

    Basically, there's a rift going on between Jim Benning and their scouting staff right now - and a very interesting nugget came out of it.

    Apparently Jim Benning wanted Broberg, and the scouts wanted Podkolzin. The scouts in Vancouver were very worried that Broberg was playing a bit of 4LW for his team in Sweden, saying he "lacked major hockey sense and defensive ability" and wondered if he'd ever play in the NHL.

    Quotes about Broberg start around the 11:00 left mark.

    JD Burke cracks me up. Calling the Vancouver a unique market because some fan can name a couple of scouts.. Burke has had little interaction with other markets I suspect

    Broberg apparently hasn't been a defender long so him playing like a forward makes sense.

    Now the question is, is Benning or his scouts better talent evaluators. Normally outside the first round the scouts have free reign over the picks. Vancouver has been terrible at drafting outside the first round. 3 picks in the past 10 years have made it to 100 games. (Edmonton sitting at 7).

    So as much as I'm not a Broberg fan, id take Vancouver's scouts opinions with a very fine grain of salt.

    Take what JD Burke said with a truck load of salt. When he started talking about Jonathen Dahlin and how he wanted out of Vancouver. Dahlin did not want to be in North America, he gave it a shot and made it clear he wanted to go home to Sweden. Dahlin also wanted out of the Sens organization. The kid got home sick for Sweden

    Seems like Vancouver's first round picks have panned out at least decently recently, only one that comes to mind that's questionable is Juolevi (we'll see).

    2016 is still in pending. Same as the Nucks
