I think he might play if not dealt by game time. Canucks need the points and I can see Kes wanting to play his heart out in a Canuck uniform one last time and help them get the 2 pts.

What I said was BS was the talking heads like they actually know something.

Doubt anything happens as well, but they [Louis Jean] did know something, with all this hoopla and trade speculation.

I'll laugh if this is the only deal the Canucks make for the trade deadline.

Gillis just bought himself at least another 2 years from Aquaman with this one. Costello is projected to be the next Justin Papineau!

Booth buyout is back.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

Can the team just call up Jensen now? or is that a crime against humanity.

Excited to see Matthias play! (shutup RD)
I think he'll bring some much needed enthusiasm to the team, even the inked up Markstrom.

After trade deadline:

Torts

Wanted to clear up a rumour going around that Lou was benched because a trade in the works. Said not true at all. It was his decision, a hockey decision and he would do it again. He said he will take the heat for the fall out.

Kesler

Glad the day is over. Happy to still be a Canuck. Lack came up to him at practice and told him he was just traded to Pittsburg. He smirked and said he would be shooting pucks at his head the rest of the year.

Torts

Asked how he liked the new tall goaltender. He laughed and said when he first saw him he thought he was the new forward we got so he started talking to him in that light.

Booth only has one more year though. The biter is signed for three more years and is three years older than Booth. Booth's contract looks like a bargain compared to Burrows' bloated deal.

Booth actually has a tad cheaper cap hit as well.

Compliance buyout Burrows and regular buyout Booth or just keep Booth?

If you CBO Burrows, you've pretty much given up on the twins, with whom you are stuck until they retire. Burrows has proven to be the only player around who can produce with the twins at even strength. The injuries themselves do not lend to suspicions that he cannot produce with them again. Unless management has identified someone else who they firmly believe will produce with the twins, buying out Burrows makes little sense moving forward.

Despite his more spirited play - skating, playing the body and taking the puck to the net - what has Booth done to justify his salary and cap space? What has he done since he came here that would lead anyone to believe he can produce more than he has to this point?

Booth is the logical choice.

Burr has looked awful this year but was the leading goal scorer on the team last year - and we're talking about buying him out? Damn you people turn on players quickly. I would have thought given the broken jaw and broken foot he'd at least get a little bit of slack....I guess not.

Uhh, what?

They were doing just fine in October without Burrows, before Henrik's wrist and then rib injuries. And before they got saddled with AB for that matter. :sly:
