Re: So are RFA the next target

I posted the new RFA compensation levels on my site: http://canuckshockeyblog.com/?p=1414 We don't have our 2nd round pick in 2010 (Bernier deal) so an offer sheet between $1,506,717 and $3,013,433 is out of the question. I'm intrigued by guys like Cam Barker and Phil Kessel but are they worth more ...

Re: LaBarbera for a 7th

It was announced during the first intermission.

That said, I know that the Canucks have been trying to get LaBarbera for at least a couple of seasons now. IIRC, they wanted him part of the Cloutier deal.

Re: Canuck Injuries

I don't think Goering has a contract with the Canucks. Julien Ellis may be the next option.

Well deserved promotion for Tambellini, though it sucks that he went to a rival team. Gillis must've known this was coming. I'm inclined to think it's part of the reason he hired Gilman. Gillis will handle negotiations while Gilman would make sure the numbers match up. Do you think Mellanby will rep...

Perhaps the thinking is for Vermette to play w/ Sundin & Demitra? ....further enticing the big Swede to sign.

I've never had a dream with Serena or Venus. I've had one with Maria Sharapova. :P Seriously... I loved Cowan during his streak. I cringed when Nonis signed him to a two-year extension. Plus, even when he was playing great (which was a short two-week period BTW), he was far from being the best fourt...

That Leafs game is at 4pm You'd think it was Hockey Day in Canada... but no other Canadian teams play each other. Avalanche Oilers 10:00 PM ET probably the CBC late game Flyers v Canadiens Senators v Islanders Flames aren't playing. Guess they wanted the Nucks/Leafs early so Leaf fans could see Sun...

I like the move. He's as good a young player as we can get - and a RW, potential power forward to boot - without having to give up a Bieksa or Edler or Kesler. He probably has as much potential as a 2nd round or 3rd round draft pick as well. Not sure if I'm a big fan of Gillis throwing an offer shee...

Even if this was a good idea, we don't have $24 mil under the cap.

Hi guys, if anyone's interested, I compiled a bunch of news links on my blog. Lots of reaction from Winnipeg and the Maritimes as well.

Still weird to think about it. Full of life one minute, gone the next.

Crazy.

Assuming Nonis gets his scoring forwards, the bottom lines look like this: Burrows-Kesler-Pyatt Cowan-Rypien-Pettinger Brown and Hansen are the next call-ups. I don't know why he would want to replace the 4th line via free agency. As we know, that area is where we have a bit of depth. Unless they ho...
