How so?

Isn't that the defensive zone system Torts coaches. Isn't it also the offensive zone system he coaches.

AV was the pretty goal guy and the players are still learning the transition. Some may and stick around, some may not and go elsewhere.

Oh, I actually misinterpreted the quote. Never mind!

Yes, I agree that its a shot against the first line telling them to keep it simple. The skilled goals aren't there to be scored because of all of the injuries we've been experiencing so garbage it up.

Canucks Misconduct ‏@nucksmisconduct
The Canucks have traded Dale Weise to Montreal for defenceman Raphael Diaz.


The Canucks are getting smaller... not that Dale Weise brings much to the table. Torts just does not like him... :mrgreen:

Henrik has been cleared to play.

Richardson is now out with an undisclosed injury. I have to assume his injury is related to the Eberle slash.

At least with the Torts version of the Canucks players who are not liked or utilized get traded rather than sitting in the pressbox sucking up cap space for no good reason. Maybe Gillis is grabbing a clue finally.....

Unreal. I'm just waiting for one of these pre-game "injury" announcements to actually be a smokescreen and the player gets dealt.

I'm waiting for 1973 to call and ask for their Canucks back.

Was speaking with a friend tonight. He was talking to a player after yesterday's game and sort of asked him about the alleged threats by MG to start making changes. The player told him that the NTC will not be a problem. If the Canucks want to move out guys with NTC all it does will allow those players to have some control over where they go. Basically said that none of the players would stay if they were asked to waive, when the team wants to move on you go, you just try to control the situation that is best for your family and career.

My friend said that it sounded to him that more than one player has discussed the issue and they seem resigned to the fact that if they don't get it done then several of them will find themselves gone. He did say that a number of players would be reluctant to waive until the summer, not wanting a mid season move but if the right opportunity came along, i.e. to a contender.....

This player did reiterate to my friend that no one in the dressing room is talking about moving on, they still want to be in Vancouver and win it here. He also said that he doubted Luongo would want to stay around for a re-build. Also noted that the twins would be pretty pissed if a re-build happened and that players like Kesler would test FA at the first chance.

Seems like the love affair with MG and the players is a little strained right now. There are players like Kesler, Bieksa, Luongo and the twins that want MG to do whatever it takes to make the team a contender and those same players don't want to be part of a re-build. Interesting times. The Olympic break is coming at the right time for this team, well a week ago would have been better.

As a fan I would in turn ask that these core players do whatever it takes to turn the fortunes of this team around. I give Henrik a pass currently. He is playing through a significant, painful injury. The others don't get a pass, particularly Daniel who looks completely listless right now. You want want this core kept together and the future mortgaged for the present? Pull your freaking socks up.

I guess if MG has to blow up the team, he can just approach the guys with NTC and tell them the situation and ask for a list of teams they would be willing to go to. We probably won't get very much for those guys, but u gotta do what u gotta do.


players like Kesler would test FA at the first chance.


Does Kes have a NTC? If we rebuild, we gotta trade Kes. I think he still has 2 years on his deal and he's probably our most valuable asset and we should get the most for him if we shop him around in a potential trade.

Interested to know how much the "missing the playoffs is not an option" was directed at the coaching staff as well as the players.

Interesting times for Mike Gillis, he re-tools, the core gets angry, what does the whimp do, let players run the team or himself? Bold Moves vs The Process? What will it be? Stay tuned, this is getting real good!
