If i recall correctly, at the time I didn't love the signing but I didn't hate it either. I thought it was an overpayment on $$$ (albeit on par with what that ufa class was getting) and definitely a couple of years too long. I remember I thought that Brouwer was the best deal that day but it seems all the "higher" end forward ufas from that summer are proving to be bust signings.Blob Mckenzie wrote: ↑Sun Feb 11, 2018 12:10 amThere are posters here who think he was an excellent signing
Does "bust" cover Loui? Closing in on two years later, he's been a complete and utter disappointment here. I struggle to recall a Canucks player so bloody invisible on so many nights, at least at that paygrade (Gagner's pretty close but at a smaller cap hit and term fortunately).
To read this week that Eriksson's apparently just numb to the criticism and lack of production (sorry I cant recall the source, local media twitter i think) is just brutal. Numb actually suits the stupid expression on his face most of the time. Show some pride, dignity, anything...even if the drought continues at least make it noticable that you at least care. Show some sort of pulse for god's sake. I get nothing from him. Not sure he even qualifies for the term warm body. For me, thats no example for younger players. Too bad we are stuck with him for at least another year. If Benning could find a taker, that would indeed be genius.
