Would seem that the team will be sending a very strong veteran line-up for the two China games.
In other words, me thinks that we and L.A. are supposed to send recognizable names.
Of course I haven't seen that in writing, :mrgreen: but I wonder if it could be connected to the fact that we ended up with one of the very best regular season travel schedules we have ever had. :hmmm:
Haven't looked at LA's
Would have rather had a favor, (if that's what it is), in the lottery. 8-) but that would be dishonest, damn !!!

Probably just a case of management asking the veterans: "who wants to go to China for a week?"

If I was management, out of respect, I would ask the veterans if they wanted to go or not. Like a company perk, just more expensive

It is a showcase event. The teams are expected to take competitive squads with them. I imagine the team that is papered to be our opening roster will attend while a number of bubble players will get a ton of exhibition games back home.

As well as the company perk part :mrgreen:

Let's just hope Jim has talked to Rob about not portraying scenes out of "Slapshot" because Mr. Blake could be a
pretty intimidating sort, if I recall..

Tim Hortons drive through, what a date night.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

I'm a bit surprised the Sedins gave Anson Carter so much credit. Trent Klatt played a similar game by going into tuff areas to score, but guess he wasn't skilled enuff. *hehe* Looking back, Nonis probably should have brought Carter back with a low ball offer after Carter failed in Columbus/Carolina.

Speaking of Carter, I think Vanek can be a Carter 2.0 for us. A big guy who can play that Sedin cycle game with soft hands around the net. :P

#Canucks have released Aaron Berisha, Matt Barberis, Johny Corneil and Aaron Luchuk from tryout.

I liked Luchuk and thought he had a shot a a contract with Utica. Could still happen I guess. Didn't notice the other three at all really.
The only HW the Canucks need
