After all, if size actually didn't matter any more than mobility then it would stand to reason that the NHL's "successful" teams would have blueline corps comprised of at least an equal number of smaller, quick-footed puck handling defencemen as leviathans. But, then exactly how many NHL Stanley Cu...

Um. No. Scoring two or less goals 10 times and being shutout three times in the playoffs killed us. That ain't a problem with the defence. Our lack of production is a function of 2 things, our system and our pathetic puck movement at the back end. The NHL where forwards are for offence and defencem...

Um. No. At forward, sure. But this Club's back end is just about as deep as it gets in this league. We've got two top quality pairings locked in with Ohlund/Salo and Mitchell/Bieska. I expect Nonis will sign Lukas up with no fuss in the offseason for a reasonable amount - which gives us a good youn...

More research? You sounded pretty confident when you said he would be our "most offensively gifted defenceman by a huge margin." Whether the figure is $1.7m or $3m, it's a hefty price to pay, considering our top defenseman is paid $3.5m. Koltsov isn't a sure shot to make the top 6. If it was decidi...

I said he was worth 1.7 million, what he is actually worth I would probably need to do a great deal more research on him for. However he is a 24 year old defencemen with truely massive upside, he is without a doubt our best prospect by a distance and so far ahead of hte likes of Bordon and Edler tha...

Koltsov is EASILY worth 1.7 million. He would instantly be our most offensively gifted defencemen by a huge margin. You don't win without a defencemen who can carry the puck and he has more talent then anyone else in the Canucks organization. Hes the best defencemen in the world outside the NHL, I f...

i've never understood the Stuart hype. What exactly has he done? His biggest accomplishment was being a #3 overall pick. 3 teams in two years tells you something and it's not that he's wanted but rather the team giving him up doesn't feel bad in doing so. He's a #4 guy (honestly on the canucks I th...

Naslund gets hit similarly and this city screams bloody murder....Drury gets tagged by a bigger dirtier player than Moore ever could be, and it's a "good clean check". Give your head a shake.....and please use that overused phrase that hockey is a contact sport when you rebut. While I agree the hit...

I think people need to get off the idea of forsberg coming here, its kind of a moronic notion. Forsberg is a shadow of his former self and any inspired opponent is going to end his season if not his career. It tends to be alot easier to avoid injury when every team is kicking your ass. And we are su...

Personally I am thrilled with our backup, I think he has played quite well outside a couple of shaky periods. Yes hes untested but considering our payroll situation I think this was one of the few very good moves Nonis has made.

Ya, this is being talked up like its some kind of major thing. Its not, it was a stupid thing to do for sure but the way it sounded on the radio was like he rode is head into the separator or something.

Actually I have thought for several years the most effective use of the sedins are as centermen, its pretty clear that Daniel, like his brother, is most appropriately used as a centermen and didn't wind up that way simply because he was the more gifted scorer of the pair. Both have all the traits of...
