Cloutier will likely be gone with Auld and Noronen in mix,
You're probably right Grizz, but I would prefer a Cloutier / Noronen tandem for next season with Oulette playing most of the games for Manitoba...

Start the season with a mindset that Cloutier tops out at around 50 games..

Auld should have some decent trade value...

Take care....

I am not sure I can agree with this for simple financial reasons. Here we have 2 goalies in Cloutier and Auld who are at minimum, equals in terms of ability. I would almost say that Auld has a brighter future than Cloutier and has proven that he is only getting better. Neither golaie are playoff proven and Auld is MUCH cheaper. I would be surprised if they trade Auld. That being said, you are right, Auld looks attractive to trade by virtue of his youth and strong season thus far.

I could see teams going for Cloutier. Granted, you're going to get more if you trade Auld, but not many teams are looking for a "goalie of the future." Cloutier fits the bill as a rent-a-goalie because he has only 1 year left on his contract and is one of the few goalies that is paid fairly for what he's worth.

When the Canucks first sighned Anson Carter I figured it to be a mistake(and said so here) along the Richard Park lines. Having had him in apool a few years ago It seemed to me he had one good year and was coasting on that. But after having watched him all season its pretty clear this guy dosn't coast. Game in and game out he gives it his all, a very pleasent surprise, if he had better hands he could be leading the league in goal scoring because our co-MVP's, the twins have set him up in cold a rediculous number of times. These guys have really stepped up this year and give you the feeling everytime they come on the ice that they could score, not so with all the other lines.

I agree that when I watch games now, and the twins come on the ice, I really get the feeling they will score a goal,especially if it is a crunch time goal that is needed, and they frequently come through.....unfortunately Crow doesn't seem to feel that way, he frequently puts the WCE on at the end of a period, the line with the worst plus/minus on the team!!!!

Henrik, I'd say Henrik because he's been unstoppable with Carter and his brother and he assists and scores so much.

(It's sad how no one voted for Naslund =[ )

Was he named the official MVP at the final game?

I'm pretty sure I heard one of the commentators on tv say that on Saturday night; but I haven't corroborated it anywhere...
