The 2014 NHL Draft has come and gone, and the short term, and potentially long term, futures of hundreds of young men have been determined.

The top players went where they were expected to go, while some players made pretty substantial slides down the draft board, including a couple, like Ivan Barbeshev and Brayden Point, who were ranked higher up on the final FanSided NHL Draft big board.

The Vancouver Canucks are in the process or a franchise reshaping, and it showed with the selections of Jake Virtanen and Jared McCann in the first round. Those two players have the potential of making the roster this season, and should give Canucks fans a breath of fresh air with their play style.
