Jamie McGiin
Brad Richards
Olli Jokinen
Vincent Lecavelier
Mason Raymond
Alex Kilorn
Carl Sodeberg
Ryan Garbutt

They all out scored former Art Ross winner Daniel Sedin last season.


None of said individuals played unter the Torts' "system" if you can call it that, however. :mex:

That's what he's rumoured to be asking for. And some stupid GM will give it to him.

If it was short term, then maybe. But he's injury prone and wants to get something long term for security!

That's why he should be on the do not touch list.

So in 2 years from now you have an injury prone 3rd line C in Bolland making $5M for 5 more years...

:stupid:

He's asking for 7, and he will get 7 from some stupid team.

Meaning if you want him on Vancouver it will probably require the 7.

So you're completely discounting what we receive in return for Kesler?

You don't build depth through free agency. You add complimentary pieces. Overpaying through free agency rarely works out.

And Bolland for 7 years at $5M per is insane.


I think it'll be picks/prospects for Kesler or a winger/pick/prospect, nothing significant center wise.
Yeah the long term deal probably won't happen for Bolland, only desperate teams would do that.

Grabovski should be of interest as well.


Bolland is a 3rd line pest. Does anyone here no think he's a classless version of Burrows?

If we are talking 2nd line plug, then Bolland for a single year is tolerable.....barely. Grabovski is a MUCH better fit as a top-6 center.

Yep. He's coming off a significant injury. He's not a young kid anymore, and he's been banged up significantly throughout his career. He's never played a full 82 game season, FFS. He's never been a prolific scorer (his best year he was 7th on his team), and he's never hit 20 goals. I see nothing that indicates this guy is a second line C. He's a grade A pest an he plays with an edge. Great, let Calgary sign him for forever.

I'd frankly rather sink with Matthias than go out and overpay for Bolland for 7 fucking seasons.

Then there's this!

He's from fucking TO anyways, nothing good has come out of there .... ever.

I'd rather just re-sign Santorelli and have the kids learn from his work ethic.

Santorelli JB/TL might be what they want to get away from now, plus who knows how he'll be with a bum shoulder.

Hank could be a 65-70 game type now with various ailments.

Someone show me our lineup with Hank and Kesler out.

And you seriously think Bolland could be the answer?? The whole Canucks team faded once Santorelli was done for the season. It seems like he is more important than Hank and Kesler combined...

Remove the top 2 centres from any team without replacing them adequately and they are fucked.

Bolland or Grabovski won`t do any better than a Santorelli at stopping the bleeding.

The Canucks need to be healthy to win, just like any team.

I don't think Dave Bolland is a great idea, but I'll just point out that I'd take Grabovsi plus Santorelli over Santorelli on his own ten times out of ten.

Assuming reasonable deals of course.. and I'm not confident that's going to be an option.

Grabovski would be a decent stop gap, provided we can't get anybody else through trade or otherwise to play second line center.

At least Grabovski has 3 seasons with over 20+ goals.

I`d seriously just rather give the kids a chance to play.

Horvat, Gaunce, 6th (or Reinhart if we can swing it), whatever the hell we get for Kesler as well.

Maybe if someone wants to come on a one year deal. But what UFA is going to want that?

Let someone else pay him that much for that long. He's a 40-point, injury-prone, 3rd line center that wants the security of a deal that takes him until he's 35.



And he will get it too. But I agree I hope it's not from us.

Didn't he play 1C

For the Leaves :rofl:
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.
