Agree with BC. Bring up Frankie. Bring up Sauve. Bring up anyone we can bring up to get rid of this horrible dark cloud that's hanging over our head.

Win or lose, I just want to see energetic good hockey. The Coiler game was brutally hard to watch.

Schroeder was the only Canuck who didn’t look like his dog just died on Monday.

I agree with the general sentiment. Make some call-ups and shake up this roster. I actually liked HW’s suggestion of waiving Booth. Clearly the guy is not going to work out here…time to move on. Create a roster spot that we can cycle some Utica guys through and see if anybody catches on. Grenier and Jensen are two guys I’d like to see before the season is done, and I’d like to see Archibald and Corrado a bit more as well.

Tough luck for Tanev, but on the bright side, the timing is perfect.

Somewhat agree with the consensus, let's bring up some kids. But not Jensen.

Waive/demote Booth, recall Corrado and give Grenier Booth's spot.

Higgins Kes Kas
Sedin Richardson Burr
Grenier Schroeder Hansen
Sestito Lain Weiss

Character building period.

Here's my bandaid lineup while Hank is out.

Sedin Kesler Kassian
Higgins Schroeder Burrows
Sestito Dalpe Hansen
Archi Richarsdon Lain

All in favour of waiving Booth?

IF we go that route, I would hope the Canucks would just send him home with his paycheck. No point in having him play out the year in Utica. Pay him, let him sit on the couch, and that way he's healthy for a buyout this summer.

Is waiving him the best route or just the quickest?

The rumors yesterday were true...Mike Santorelli has had shoulder surgery and is done for the season. Recovery is expected to take 5-6 months. Tough break for Mike and the Canucks.

So far this season Henrik, Tanev, Edler, Bieksa, Santorelli, Kassian (suspension), Burrows, Luongo, Stanton, Alberts, Schroeder, have all missed significant time. That's half the roster right there.

If the team was healthy they'd be 5 or 6 in the west. Problem is they are never healthy and don't have the depth to overcome major injuries.

Not sure what I want for this season anymore. I can't see Aquilini allowing Gillis to do a mini rebuild, it's just too lucrative to get into the playoffs, but that's really what I think they need. Trade a couple of roster players like the Sharks did last year, maybe you squeak into the playoffs and maybe not, but you're much stronger over the long run. Perhaps a guy like Hansen, Richardson, Weise can get you a pick or young player. A guy like Tanev would grt you more, and a guy like Edler more still. Doubt any big trades happen but third liners are worth a ton at the deadline, would be interesting to shop a couple.

Tough break for us poor fuckers that can't do anything about it except watch the slow motion train wreck.

HEY RD. STRAP ON SOME SKATES AND DO SOMETHING USEFUL.

Honestly I am more sad about santo not going to finish having a career year than the team needing him. This is a good chance for shcroeder though so it is not as bad as it looks. Besides I don't mind The canucks doing a mini rebuild and stuff but I mind it when I see them play with no confidence or creativity because their play right now is so pathetic that I can only laugh at them now.

Not sure about slow motion, but yeah I get what you mean. We sure are poor fuckers.

I was feeling pretty optimistic about our season prior to Christmas…now, not so much. Things are unraveling here pretty quick.

Any forward depth this team has had has been absolutely decimated by injuries (Burrows, Henrik, Santorelli, Hansen and Schroeder), an off year by Hansen and extremely poor performances by Burrows and Booth.

On defense, all of a sudden Weber and Corrado are going to be seeing big minutes as our only two right handed defensemen….yikes!

I am not sure any teams in the current cap environment can survive through significant injuries like the Canucks have.

Santo's LTIR won't give much cap relief to MG... Santo is the last player on this team that should be out for long-term. Seriously, I really wish Sestito would go after Hanzel the turtle. :evil:
