How could Demko get 59:58 time on ice? Maybe he left the net for the extra attacker on a delayed penalty? Are they really that picky with stats?
The only HW the Canucks need

Definitely. I've seen that before.

Well, they had enough chances.

Unless they are really working on his 200’ game 2 points in 5 games won’t get you to the NHL except as the 13th or 14th player and subbing for injuries.

Jesus, but what a piss-parade you're becoming...

Guy has barely played since his knee surgery, and it's "score 10 points in 5 games or it's Bustville"? Give the guy a break, already.

If he has 10 points in 25 games and it's Christmas already, then we can talk about his NHL potential. Until then, I don't think the jury should be out on Rodin yet. At the very least, I have to give the guy credit for sticking with his dream and working through this in the minors instead of bolting back to Sweden.

Even so, he's cheaper than Ericksson for what he would be able to do. If Rodin can show some scoring jam, maybe Benning can offload Louie to make space.
Love the Sport. Love the Team.

Hate the League.

Sorry no. I am being realistic. Almost 27 years old, several injuries already. Too many posters here are seeing a better player than he is and trying to get him PP time and everything.

But I agree with what you said about him hopefully being serviceable so we can get rid of LE. Hell we don’t even need Rodin to do that. The team is already winning without the boat anchor so move him now if we can.

All I know is if Rodin hadn't wrecked his knee, he'd probably be a decent 15 goal scorer in the NHL, he showed flashes of brilliance in his short season's in the pros.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."
