Here's a write-up from StevenToddIves, a journalist on HFBoards:

Man, hard not to get excited about seeing Hughes wearing a Devils uni on the ice come October...feels preordained at this point.  Team has the potential to be pretty entertaining (especially if they c

well it's obviously not happening. But we have nothing to talk about until then so lol

Uhh, there’s pages and pages talking about it already. 

I am not aware of a team having the first pick and then trading it instead of using it. I’d be curious to know if it’s happened.

2003 - MAF

2002 - Nash

1999 - Stefan

1998 - Lecavalier

Thank you. I’m going to go look at those situations. That article has some fact issues, they have Eric Lindros’s pick as having been traded when it was not, he was drafted #1, refused to sign, and then was traded. Not the same. 

EDIT: Looking at those, I wouldn’t count Lecavalier, that was trading what would eventually be the #1, not the actual #1.

When you have a chance to draft someone like Hughes, you don't do anything cute.

 

And Shero has basically spoken the first part of your sentence verbatim, making the second part a bit more vague for etiquette, obviously.

while it's hilarious. if we're honest that whole "wanting to play with his brother" thing will always worry us. But it's years down the road at least

His brother is a UFA first. He can always come here too. Nonetheless, this isn’t something we have to even consider for about eight years.

Then we will have a good shot at Lafrenière
That and all of us being in depression and starting to killing each other with plastic spoon.

And it's stupid. 
I shouldn't remind you that plastic is bad !

I'll say it again, there must be something about living in British Columbia that makes you come up with these bizarre trade ideas because you see the same thing on HF Boards.  They used to think that Chris Tanev should bring back a top prospect and multiple first round picks.

99% of NJs fanbase resides on Facebook and says the same dumb sh!t. Geography has nothing to do with being a delusional ill-informed fan.

This wasn't that far off from trade ideas that the Athletic's beat reporter solicited and then said were good.

I ended up seeking out this reddit thread to see what else was posted and for the record, the kid who posted this proposal got torched by the rest of the Canucks subreddit and he ended up deleting the post.

well to be fair there is in some case. Habs fans are in fact dumber cause in Quebec there's a very different culture than anywhere else. Part of it is making them very entitled and thinking the whole world revolves around them. Plus they are the only french province in the NHL where the media can really brainwash the unilingual fans. Not like they can listen to any other sources and verify what's been said lol There's legit fans in Quebec who think Maurice Richard was better than like Wayne Gretzky lol Cause he's THE hero in Quebec and that's all they see.
