Re: GDT: Mar 12 - Canucks in Ohio for another BJ on SPAC -

I notice that Columbus is complaining in the media about Raymond's spin-o-rama move.

I watched it and I thought it looked within the rules but what did you guys think.

Granted it won us the game but objectively: what did you think?

Re: So, who would you like in a return for Luongo

How sterotypical. I love how the husband boastfully claimed he'd have subdued the passed out drunk by executing him with a bullet to the head.

Sigh...

Re: Coach AV returns next year? Yes or No

I will support this only if Manny wears a bolt on eye-patch like Christopher Plummer in the above pic.

Manny for coach!!
Ka-Plaa!

Re: what has to happen to get the ship on course?

I agree on your point that (if the Canucks miss the play-offs) then AV will most likely loose his job. After that there is a good chance that MG only has a year or two to make things right with a new coach before he gets fired too.

Re: Has AV's time come?

Whoa whoa whoa. lol... no worries DBR. Not trying to derail the thread. Just pointing out that there are a lot of house keeping issues coming up in the off-season ALONG with some of the BOLD moves being talked about in this thread. I am concerned with the current level of play by the Canucks but I ...

Re: Has AV's time come?

Well, If we are going to talk about moves in the summer we also need to talk Tanev. The kid is RFA this summer and we'll need to sign him up. Given how solidly he is playing does he rate a Hamhuis style contract in the 4mil cap range? If so, even if Ballard is moved, we are back to having 5 dmen mak...

Re: Keith Ballard

We can talk about his stock being low and a lot of other things but my main worry is that, now the cat is out of the bag and his agent is talking with management, I don't want to see the situation sour any more and him become a cancer (real or percieved) in the lockerroom. that doesn't help us and i...

Re: Keith Ballard

After reading the various posts here I have to agree with the analogy - round peg vs. square hole. I still think Ballard is a decent player and would make a decent contribution on another team... but not us. The system doesn't seem to work for him and AV definately doesn't work for him. About the on...

Re: Keith Ballard

You can count me amongst those who are baffled and concerned with MGAV's treatment of Ballard. For someone who was a former player agent MG has allowed this to go on for too long. I fully admit I have heavily criticized Ballard in the past and rightfully so. But this past summer he really seemed to ...

Busy waiver day: "@DarrenDreger: Wsh claims Volpatti from Van. Flyers place Leighton and Sestito, Dal place Wandell on Waivers."
yeah, I saw that too. Definately narrows our options a touch.

Re: Canucks News and Notes

I agree Herb. I am sadenned by the news. I really do hope that Manny can catch on with the organization once things settle.

I am glad the Canucks are doing this for him. Classy move by the organization for a player that was classy his whole career and really embraced the team and the city.

Re: 2013 Season Injury Thread

Speaking of our 4th line, just saw that Manny was place on Injured Reserve for rest of season. No reason given however, there seems to be some suggestion floating out there that its related to his previous eye injury. http://canucks.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=655708&navid=DL|VAN|home Bob Mackenzie Twe...

Re: 2013 Season Injury Thread

Thanks for the first hand info Larry. I can only relate what a friend told me about their experience. However you look at it though, this will take quite some time to heal properly and I really wonder what sort of impact it'll have on his game going forward. Damn shame. Also a shame that it was Cook...
