    Th team with the best Canadian talent poised to become even better!
    The team with the least, stands to have problems
    Hard to say Calgary aren’t the best managers in the league

    • YEAH those GENIUSES with the STAMPS just the RIDER organization to shame with all those 6th and 7th round picks , WOW !!!!!!!! No lets see, the Riders pick 5th , 10th and 14th , that is 3 picks out of the supposed top 15payers , hmmmm CALGARY has 1, 8th overall as they CKOCKED in the GC, guess that was part of their strategy to get a better draft pick CHOKE in the GC, lol . Given that most writers consider that basically the 1&2nd round picks are usually the only for sures to challange to start or backup roster wise ///how is it that the Riders draft is so far inrerior to Calgary’s :::;;; cant waite to see that answer . probably something along the line of well Huffnagel is GOD and Dickenson is the second coming of the messiah regarding football adm , 7th round picks by them are gaurenteed starters just because they are AWESOME !!! and Jones’s gang at stupid !!and our picks will be janitors !!! by traingin camp end !!!

    • Really??
      Just looking through the past few years draft and there isn’t a lot of Canadian talent.
      Most of the top picks were “O” linemen and I wouldn’t call them “talented”
      I would say free agency is heck of a lot more important than the Canadian draft snoozefest.
      The team that has best imports and chooses wisely in free agency stands to be better.
      The team with the best Canadian talent?? no proof of that.

        Wow you obviously don’t really follow or understand the CFL after that post . Having top Canadians is huge to being successful. Stick to the NFL

    Ya they manage to clear out the grey cup locker real fast. Hey, isn’t Donkey out of season right now.

    • stomp into 2018 // December 15, 2017 at 2:40 pm //

      Yeah probably as fast as sask did there last game. WHICH WASN’T THE GREY CUP.
      When was the last time you went to a game? 1993?
      You live so far from where most CFL fans live your boots haven’t been dirty in years.

      • Donkeyisstillanidiot.com // December 15, 2017 at 2:55 pm //

        You are STILL an idiot. And now you have resorted back to personal insults. What a fine human being you are!

      • Stomp in 2018, I’m proud of the accomplishments we achieved this year under Chris Jones from what we experienced the previous two seasons. We nearly were in the Grey Cup and with a break or two, would’ve been in the championship game. And personally, for what the Stamps experienced in their loss against Toronto, I wouldn’t wish that on my worst enemy — the second go’ wrong of the Argo Bounce (LMAO).

    i thought the draft order was the reverse order of the regular season overall standings. However this does not explain why Argos draft last. So I assume p,ayoff success also plays a factor. Anyone know how the draft order is determined.?

    • You pretty much have it figured out. The Grey Cup teams pick last (winner) and second last but after that it’s on regular season record. That’s why even though they got farther into the playoffs, Saskatchewan still picks before Winnipeg (WBB had the better regular season record).

  4. The TiCat trade of John Chick to the Esks looks pretty good . The 15 th Canadian player chosen should be a keeper for the Cats . Chick and Gable were supposed to put the Esks over the top but it’s tough when you have to overcome Maas’ blunders as head coach . Esk supporters deserve better .

    • agreed acquisitions of 1st or 2nd round picks are gold when obtained for an aging player!! Sadly Edmonton had little choice but to go that high for Chick regarding pick , as they due tom injury had an big need at the time — and have always historically valued Chick as a player , they went after him quite hard when he returned to the league in 2013, sadly for them Chick was drawn to a great offer and desire to return to Sask where he was previously comfortable/had success and felt a degree of loyalty for ///similar to Weston returning and spurning offers from Calgary and Winnipeg I believe. good luck with your 25th overall pick , hope the player is a good one for your team.

  5. With Montreal having 6 of the top 8 picks thru all 8 rounds they should be able to RELOAD with good young Canadian talent. With free agents and signings down south this is their CHANCE to improve the roster big time. Now they just have to pick the right guys who can make a impact for 2018.
