Re: Offseason Wheelings and Dealings

Nobody has to go until September or October 2013. duh, ya lost me here? I was talking about how Burrows who will be entering the final year of his contract this coming season and is looking to test the UFA market for being grossly underpaid for 4 years will be a UFA come July 1st, 2013. Do you want...

Re: Rumor: Aaron Volpatti re-signs

I agree with RD...shocking I know. Volpatti brings a lot of what the canucks need a 12-14th forward to do. He likely won't be a regular, but when he is in the lineup you know you are going to be able to count on him to deliver (or try to ) deliver hits and will drop the gloves. He knows his role an...

Re: Offseason Wheelings and Dealings

From a cap perspective, the Canucks could afford Dubinsky fairly easily - particularly if they go with a Schneider/Lack combo next year. Could we still have Dubinsky and Booth and be players in the Alex Burrows UFA sweepstakes next summer? Who do you like better, Burrows, Booth, Dubinsky? If Burrow...

Re: Luongo will Waive NTC If Asked To

I heard today he was close to pulling the trigger but there was a "misunderstanding" around draft picks involved. As far as I know he still has not approached Luongo or his agent with any perspective trade details. I think he is still posturing a whole lot here. Yesterday I heard he had not been ma...

Re: Offseason Wheelings and Dealings

Well if the Rangers are trying to clear cap room, Booth nor Ballard ain't going there. Curious are we gonna re-sign Burrows. If so, it makes no sense in bringing in another middling player at 4.2 million unless you get rid of Booth. Replacing Ballard with Dubinsky makes no sense. Gillis could be cre...

Re: Offseason Wheelings and Dealings

Gilbert Brule might be an interesting option at centre. The Coyotes aren't bringing him back. Blobby, why does everyone want to fill this team with journeymen? There are reasons why these guys can't hold a job with a team for very long. This might be the Luke Schenn syndrome, because they were draf...

Re: Rumor: Aaron Volpatti re-signs

Hey people, he was signed for what $600,000. Why so negative, maybe he plays in Chicago this year, so fucking what. Give the kid a chance ya miserable twats. At least he can actually beat guys up, ie Winchester, Sutton, Peckham and give O'Donnell and Strudwick a run for their money and isn't afraid ...

Re: Gillis. Who is He?

Lets me just say, that if Mike Gillis does not have one player that his regime drafted in the line-up next season...I WILL NEVER WATCH ANOTHER CANUCK GAME AGAIN!!!! But seriously now, Gillis drafting and developing is starting to look real bad...heading into his 5th draft year and not much to get ex...

Re: Offseason Wheelings and Dealings

I'm starting to think that Strangelove was that guy who called in on 1040 the other day with tears streaming down his face threatening that "IF. MASONRAYMOND! IS IN A CANUCK UNIFORM NEXT SEASON!!! I...WILLNEVER!!! WATCH...ANOTHER GAME....AGAIN!!!! I'M SERIOUS!!!

It was either him or Tantalum

Re: Offseason Wheelings and Dealings

Huh. Well I guess I would look hard at that deal, you don't often see a top ten pick with NHL experience become available for so little so soon.. But the Canucks would have their work cut out for them to shore up their blueline. IMO they already need a top four guy, dealing Ballard means they need ...

Re: Luongo will Waive NTC If Asked To

I wish people would stop saying this. Shultz is not going to sign with a team just because a friend plays there. That may be a small factor but unless you are a complete idiot you look for the situation that is most conducive to your own life and career path. Gotta agree with Pot here, the whole bu...
