Re: GDT: Vancouver has the Blues - 7pm - SN - 1/9

First home game for Mats...hope he pots a couple on the PP. I think him and Wellwood will work well together, but we'll see. I don't like Raymond with that line though. Think we need a guy to go get the puck instead of Raymond who's fast but keeps his head down and gets pushed into the boards, falls...

JP Barry on the Team 1040

JP Barry, Mats Sundin's North American agent based in Calgary, will be on the Team 1040's Pratt and Taylor show at approximately 5:20 pm today.

Just a heads up so we can analyze the rhetoric.

Personally, I think it's a terrible selling point. A lot of players simply don't care that much about the Olympics. I think the chances of wining a Cup are a much stronger pull for Sundin than winning a gold medal (which I believe he already has?) Has the NHL committed to the 2010 Olympics yet? I r...

Sundin to Vancouver - The 2010 theory

Again yesterday, the theory that Mats may be intrigue in coming to Vancouver partly due to the 2010 Olympics being here came up - this time out of the mouth of GM Mike Gillis. Here is what I see as the main selling point of this, that some people tend to miss: I think it is right on the mark about S...

Gillis on Pratt and Taylor this afternoon...

I heard a rumour Gillis would be on today...can anyone confirm this?

If so, I'm not expecting him to say anything new. Hopefully he will be too busy to come on the air, meaning something is in the works like last time (Demitra signing).

Who knows what Sundin is thinking... It's so convenient that he can hide in Sweden while all of this goes down. The longer he waits the more he is going to piss someone off (Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver). I just don't understand why a guy who has had so long to "think about it" needs another 7-10 da...

I didn't hear it personally, but apparently Shorty was on 1040 today and said that a couple sources had told him that Sundin to Vancouver was pretty much done, and was reasonably confident he'd be signed, sealed and delivered in a week or so. A few people claim to have heard this, so I have no reas...

I guess this is what the rumoured afternoon Gillis press conference is about. Annoucing Demitra and Davidson signings. I was really hoping he was going to tell us about a big swede signing on too! Wishful thinking I guess. If Nonutz told us he had made a good offer to Sundin, I wouldn't have any shr...

The other dynamic of the boards from this Hanky character is apparently after he made the prediction about Sundin coming here for sure: The team 1040 was supposed to have Gillis on but he cancelled at the last minute and instead said there will be a press conference tomorrow with a big announcement ...

Don't piss off John Davidson....Canucks could have seen this coming and should have signed him for much less.

Gillis' procrastination and "patience" are going to hurt him. Another rookie GM mistake.

If you trade for a guy...get the deal done. Hope he's learned his lesson.

I think we might be going after Spezza as a Sundin plan B. I know the sens just inked Jason Smith, but they could use a few more solid d men.....maybe with more mobility, ala Bieksa. Then we'd have Demitra Spezza Raymond Sedin Sedin Bernier Burrows Kesler Wellwood Johnson HOrdichuk Brown That's a pr...

You're quite right Toucan. I have way too much time on my hands.

I'm just really excited to think of a Canucks team that might be *gasp* exciting again, win or lose.

With Nonutz gone, maybe we can make the games a lot more fun this year.

Demitra's comments: What they really mean...

In an interview with CKNW, Demitra had to say: -Gillis is a good friend of his for many years (including his agent) -Vancouver is his number one choice -A deal should be done in either a)few days b)few weeks -He has toured the city and likes it Feels like it will be a great chance to win the cup Let...
