Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

RD, if you think we all age the same, then I feel you are mistaken. I'm 60 and one of my Brothers-in-Law is 66. He not only can physically run rings around me but buries most average guys in their late 30's and early 40's. I'm not saying he could play in the NHL, what I am saying is Shane Doan can. He isn't a party animal and he keeps himself in great shape. He still patrols his wing with strength and smarts, something in short supply. We don't need a guy like Doan, we need Doan. MG and LG can figure out the cap.

I just simply do not like Booth and that doesn't seem to rest to well with the clique here. Is Booth really the best you could get with 4.5? The clique will tell you "you're darn tootin' but me? I don't think so. I'd be all teeth to have Samuelsson in the fold instead of Booth.

Just live with it Trev, I just simply and dearly would love to have both Ballard and Booth off the books. Now you my friend, need to move on.
So you would have taken your chances with Samuelsson/Sturm on the team at the end of last season or you think there was another "younger, faster, bigger" $4M scoring forward out there that MG could have acquired instead of Booth.

That's all you had to say :P

Moving right along...

Shane Doan is a physical beast. The dude is bull strong like a farm boy.

I think if he played 17- 19 min here with good players he would be a 60 point player who gives this team some chutzpah.

If he is needing four years I say no higher than 22 million. I would rather they give him 18 over three though.

Back to Booth, he hasn't played here from the start of the season so really lets stop the crybaby whining until the man gets a 40 game running start from day fucking one. He joined this team last year and struggled initially but right when he started to look pretty good Porter blows up his knee. I know his game has warts and i would like to see a meaner prick than he on the top two lines, but a meaner prick who can put up 25 goals will cost more than 4.2 million per, unless he is a younger player cutting his teeth .

I don't think there is a Booth clique or a band of Gillis apologists as RD and his fist puppets claim, just a bunch of open mined people who don't criticize EVERY FUCKING MOVE that MG makes. It kills me that certain posters ball like a bitch about the Sturm signing ,still. He was fucking traded after 8 games with the team. Pull your heads out ffs.

I would also like to see Ballard get a fresh start and a real opportunity somewhere. He won't get that with Bones and AV . Waste of talent and cap space on the bottom pairing. Bring in an a-hole to play with Tanev.

I appreciate Ballard's attitude during his stint in Vancouver, and I don't doubt that he has the ability to match his salary but it just doesn't seem like a fit on this roster with its style of play and the coaching staff. It makes me wonder what Gillis was thinking when he pulled the trade to get him. Maybe he thought Ballard could learn to play the right side and the role they wanted him to play. Evidently, that didn't happen.

With the market for capable D being what it is these days, the time to trade Ballard may be now. There will be those who point to his playing minutes and stats of the past 2 seasons and try to low-ball Gillis considering Ballard's salary, but given the player names being thrown about I think there would be a decent market for Ballard right now.

Then again, he could be trade bait when the new CBA is signed (whenever that is) and teams have a full appreciation for where they sit between the cap and the floor, their budget and what they need. I have a suspicion that a lot of the trades we are waiting for will wait until then.

Don't get me wrong, I like Grabner but his value was not very high when he was traded.
Don't think I said he was a "lock"; my recollection is that i said he was "budding" and that he was a first round pick (14th if I am not mistaken). He showed great potential and some good chemistry with Kesler (which is something we don't seem to have an excess of). Just because the Panthers wasted an asset and put him on waivers does not mean Gillis would have done the same. Saying he would have been waived by the Canucks and picked up by another team for free is paramount to my saying he would have scored 33 goals that year on the Canucks - it's all speculation.

What I can say on a factual basis is that we lost a speedy, exciting player who was showing potential, for an overpaid d-man who AV won't play.

This

What brilliant post...this is the kind of stuff that gives me great hope in this place and that in times of bleakness you can still find some intelligent life on the CC planet. Someone possessing individual thought and is not swayed by the clique mob mentallity here, an ability to have the balls to go against the grain and not worried about being accepted by the clique. Pre-requisite to being a CCC member (Canucks Corner Clique). Hate AV, Love Gillis, Hate Raymond, Love Booth, Hate Grabner, Love Malhotra, Hate Edler, Love Ballard, Hate Burke, Love Kassian, Hate Hodgson, Love Higgins, Hate Nonis. There ya go in a nutshell.

I am standing at my computer and applauding you Gino's Knuckle. Take a Bow.
