Saturday is perhaps the most important day for the Vancouver Canucks of the year.
With a little luck, the Vancouver Canucks are hoping their name gets called.

Despite carrying the second-best odds to win the first overall pick, the chances aren’t that great.
Vancouver has a 12.1 per cent chance at the top selection and can wind up picking anywhere from first to fifth.
And as Canucks luck would have it, the franchise has never selected first in any of their 47 years, picking only as high as second.
