    rw 6'2 215lbs, former 4th overall bantam pick, broke out this year, ppg player, stands his ground at the front of the net, and has fought many times. definatly heart and soul, and can skate well too. was eligible last year, im unsure if he wasnt picked or if he opted out last year. definatly worth taking a flyer on and could be a sleeper. teamate matt robertson could be a decent pick too.
    is there many others who think depape should be drafted this year ?

    Well he played with Toews during his bantam year and scored a pile of goals as a result. That is why he was drafted so high in the WHL draft.

    I'm surprised that you consider his skating good because it was a definite weakness a few years ago. He must have worked on it since then.

    Who knows, maybe he'll be another Dustin Penner.

    Are you sure he played with Toews the whole time? That'd explain it, but I'm not 100% sure about that... if you are, my bad!

    yup he played his entire life growing up with toews until their 15 year old season. when he went to notre dame and toews went to shattuck. they are good friends apparantly. id say he is a guy that id like my canucks to seriously look at in about round 5

    How we drafted Evan Fuller over him last draft is inexplicable. DePape can handle himself with the gloves off - which is why we took Fuller in the first place. Another example of why Delorme should be scouting for the bantam girls softball team, not the Vancouver Canucks.

    Thanks for pointing out Depape, danno. He sounds interesting. One point of clarification- there is no such thing as opting out (or in, as used to be the case) since the new CBA. So he was definitely passed over last year. :)
