Yeahno, get 34-year-old UFA Filppula in here on a one or two year deal.

He can still easily handle 2nd line icetime and, unlike Gagner, is great in the dot...

- vet center Gagner shown he can make plays
I am not sure how Gagner can make plays when he constantly loses faceoffs and puck battles. TBH, I rather have Sutter centering the second line than Gagner.

*shudders* at the thought of Sutter as the 2nd line center. :hmmm:
He's the anti-passer, he can't setup his mates on the wing at all.

I'd rather the SL mediocre ideal of signing Flip.

I guess just to go against my post entirely, and everyone is against having Gagner as a placeholder on the 2nd line, a good fit would be to sign Bozak, who when he was a younger feller painted his face black in a poor choice for a costume.

And like EKane he's been kinda rumoured to be a top target for the Canucks since Gillis was here many moons ago.
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."

Another guy who might be interesting is Riley Nash,he looked good filling for Bergeron in the playoffs, but due to his age he’ll prolly wanna cash in.

Oh, golly-gee ya!!!
Now let's just make sure that if he isn't quite ready for the regular season in the NHL that it's Utica he spends a little time if necessary, not some wierd option in Sweden, right?
I'm joking. There is not a doubt in my mind, that he plays in the bigs. Why ? Cause Aqua man will say so.

I am so relieved. I really thought he wouldn’t sign and eventually he would renter the draft with us only getting a second as compensation. We dodged a bullet. Whew!!

Good interview. Sounds like, if all goes well, they will not hesitate to give him a roll at center sooner than later.

Pettersson says he feels ready for the NHL and comfortable at centre or wing.

Says he's up to 177 lbs now and can begin full training in 3 weeks (when thumb is healed).

As expected, Pettersson got all the max bonuses in his contract. #Canucks
