Can see what life will be like on the Canucks without the mighty Alexander Edler.

Garrison Tanev
Hamhuis Bieksa
Stanton Alberts

Although I'd 100x prefer to see Corrado called up, I think he alongside Garrison would be a deadleh combo.
Yeah, replacing Edler with Alberts will only make Edler look invaluable.

If he likes you he calls you mister.

It's a ster thing.

Todd is nothing if not reasoned.

Hmmm... Horvat, Cassels, Gaunce, Schroeder... the future looks bright at centre.

That's right: Schroeder! Image

Quite a memory there Mr. Strangelove! I'm not usually driven to 'ster' the pot ... just smoke a little now and again. I'm usually content with my 'lurker' status - life gets pretty busy sometimes.

In all seriousness, does anyone know what has happened with Donny (Lever)? I recall reading a post somewhere along the line that mentioned 'RIP' in reference to Donnie and I thought WTF?; I didn't have time at the time to follow it up.

I heard he was traded to the Leafs for future considerations and the NHL is still trying to figure out the trade call. Might just be a rumour though!

Yeah, I noticed that Gaunce got traded to the otters too. Too bad, guess he won't be playing with our other prospect Jordan Subban anymore.

Too bad?? Yeah, too bad Gaunce has been traded from one of the worst teams in the OHL to the best. It really is a shame now that he'll be competing for a Memorial Cup instead of trying to keep a crappy team afloat. That can't possibly be good for his development... :lol:

The only shame is that Subban didn't come with him. Who knows, perhaps if he was on the Otters all season he might be on the WJ squad. Look forward to seeing how he competes in their run.

Not sure how many of you have seen this or if it's even on the boards yet, but I'm pretty excited to see the final product:

OK, I'll be the first to admit that I'm not a very good writer, but I think some ppl here are not very good readers. All I said was "(t)oo bad, guess he won't be playing with our other prospect Jordan Subban anymore". U gotta read the whole sentence, but I guess it's too hard for some ppl. My point is that basically it's too bad that our 2 prospects won't be playing together anymore. God, some ppl here have the reading lvl of a 5 year old. :lol:

Anyways, if that's the way u want to play it, i'm game. U can say that it's good for Gaunce's development to play on a good team so he can win a championship. I can come back and say it's bad for Gaunce to play on a good team cuz it's filled with good players and it'll be easy for him to get lazy and let others carry the team. I say it's better for him to play on a poor team, so he can get more ice time and be "the man" who is relied upon to play in all situations and carry the team on his back. There u go son. There's always 2 sides to every debate/arguement, 2 sides to every coin. :P

Its also possible playing on a good team raises the level of play and or learning...Raising the bar so to speak without raising it so high (NHL) as to promote failure

High intensity competition in the OHL playoffs will be good for Gaunce.

He can work on that pace thing, that Sutter worries about.
