Another difference is that Miller is a proven Number One while Panic Attack is an unknown in that regard.

Can Panic Attack handle the pressure & work-load?

Or will he succumb to panic attacks? :mex:
Ask yourself this, if Cory was still here would you have. & voice those concerns?

To be honest, I definitely would have had these concerns (the panic attacks are an established fact).

Would I have "voiced" these concerns?

Probably not.

The Great Strangelove is a team player. :wink:

Except when it comes to guys named Jacob ;)

Are you confusing panic attacks w/ muscle cramps btw?

Well Jacob is as good as gone in my books.

And The Schneid himself spoke of his "panic attacks".

I've quoted the article in this forum before....

EDIT: The original Province article is no longer available but Aaron links to articles that refer to it:

Smells like more Botchford speculation to me.

Okay, I updated the original post to reflect the fact that The Cory has one year left on the "bridge" contract he signed with Vancouver. The extra 2M in cap savings would have put the Canucks' in better position to make a significant move this season in their push for the Playoffs (which is the goal as GMJB reiterated in their Summer Summit a few days ago when he was asked why the team won't be tanking for McDavid) while not unnecessarily trading/waiving a useful roster player to stay under the cap. :mex:
Still doesn't address the need for another center to replace Kesler.
Just because they might make the playoffs doesn't mean they'll make it to the finals, and you'd be sacrificing the future for an outside shot to do something next year

If I could turn back time I would give Napoleon a B52 bomber at the Battle of Waterloo
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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