IMO - these 3 new guys are not barring young guys from playing on the team on any line. I do not assume young guys will be brought in to be piss and vinegar, very few can do that. Right now I do not see any prospect that would fit that role.
Good call Reef, obviously you understand Canucks' present situation a lot better than that schmuck eastern writer.

I like where he assumes in July that "roster decisions could come down to who’s waiver eligible and who isn’t, rather than merit."

Wot a schmuck amirite?
The writer (Daniel Wagner, of the Vancouver Courier) lists his residence in ... of all places, ... Vancouver. Not someplace to the East ..
like .. Abbotsford. :P

Oopsie... I should have checked instead of making an assumption.

They have schmucks in Vancouver too?... who knew. :)

gave up watching because he can't handle a rebuild
Or didn’t watch because the team was using slugs like Dowd, Jokinnen, Motte etc. They have developed one player in three seasons. You only watch all 82 because you live in a village of 150 people and you guys make an event out the NHL games and have a community potluck. :lol:

Someone say potluck?
I have a feeling that THINKER was a fat fuck like that guy. Probably had a jammer and died

So with the promising start this year and the gems uncovered via the drafts...i wonder how many "pundits" are still calling JB the worst GM in the league.

I'll gladly throw credit where its due and the canucks are definitely on an excellent trajectory for a rapid rebuild.

If Jimmy brings home a cup I'll gladly dub thee thy GMing Genius

Cup = genius

But if the rumours are true on EP and they would of selected him #1, this place would of gone crazy at the time, now we know what we got.

Although only 1 point in 2 games ......
