Considering Petty is making the league minimum I don't think the Canucks should be too worried about paying 250K if he's picked up.
Problem comes up if we need him ( injuries etc )... and another team claims him off re entry waivers.. He's gone and we are out 250k....

Re: Around the League

Farhan said: 3) I hope Stamkos makes it. One thing that REALLY pissed me off back in 06', was how Crosby was NOT named to the team . Yes, I'm not exactly Crosby's biggest fan, but the guy deserved to be on that team. Fuck seniority. If you're good enough, you're good enough. When Mario decided not ...

Re: GDT: Another Avalanche hits GM place. 7:00 PM. SNET, 1040

A good comeback game after a very slow start.. Team toughness was there even with Hordi and SOB in the press box.. Wonder WTF Rypien said/did to Poci to get the 10 min misconduct... ? Erhoffs night for sure .. good to see Schneider shooting too... Bernier starting to make a bit of an impact.. should...

Re: If NASLUND plays at the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver for Swdn

Like my nicks namesake I believe in rough tough hockey.. 1972 Summit series says it all... The fastest most talented team did not win... The toughest did !.. Because of the formation of the WHA and an injury to Bobby Orr Team Canada was missing many of the canadian star players - like Orr, Bobby Hul...

Re: If NASLUND plays at the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver for Swdn

I AM CANADIAN I will be cheering Iginla, Phaneuf, Crosby and company against Sweden or Russia !! If Naslund is coming down the wing I will cheer if a canadian player knocks him on his arse and steals the puck. The only difference is I don't want to see any Canuck get seriously injured but if it tak...

Dr Dork said: However, I wouldn't call Bieksa and Edler the twin disasters. And I still don't have a problem giving Edler Ohlund's money. Eventually he will probably come around. Bieksa is likely to be a bit mistake prone which really means he needs to get the points to make up for his errors. Biek...

Toucan Said: Your constant bashing of Bieksa and Edler is getting a little old. "Barely competent dmen" . You are joking right. I think most of us realize they have both struggled this season, but unless you lived under a rock last year you would know they were tow of out top three d-men last seaso...

Re: 1st quarter report card

You did see the deal Ohlund got? You would have to be a fool to match that. Dunno... his cap hit is 3.6 mill ... about the same as the twin disasters Edler and Bieksa.. and he is probably worth at least 5 mill or more as a top Dman and will be good for another 5 years... so we are stuck with over 7...

Toucan Said: Someone toss a McRib out the back of GM Place and tell Wellwood to go fetch. Oh, and remember to lock the door after him. Who knows, maybe some ECHL GM is looking for strays and everything will end happily. So we're basically a pretty good team that needs a feisty center, more than lik...

Re: 1st quarter report card

I agree with most of Dorks assessment... but not his grading... Sorry but grading is about performance not potential and injuries are part of the game. The team may have the potential to be a C+ ( makes the playoffs ) or better but the last 21 games is a solid C.. Sure maybe its mainly because of ke...

Re: Nucks vs Av's

Excellent game .. Toucan the main thing Canucks get out of this one is the scoring from Hansen and Bernier which will give them more confidence going forward.. Of course the Av's came out flat with poor goaltending but maybe that was emphasized by the top performance of the Canucks. If the Avs weren...
