The Canucks felt the hit was coming, and they took to the video room to prove it to Malhotra. From Dan Murphy of Sportsnet:

I know the Canucks showed Malhotra video footage from last season and this season of situations where they thought he was at risk on the ice. I heard there was a play from the game in Minnesota this season where if Dany Heatley was Cal Clutterbuck, Malhotra could have been in trouble.


What if he did not clear his new team's medical? Maybe Manny takes a hit to the head and further injures the eye. Would GMMG look like more of a dick?

Waiving or trading would have been very dick moves.

Freeing a roster spot may have played some part of the decision, but Manny's health was the primary reason and the fact that the Vancouver medical reports to the league were never questioned by the League, the player or the NHLPA prove that.

If anyone finds an elephant, tell him to watch his step, a mollusc is looking for him.


I hadn't seen that release from Murphy. I think that should settle things regarding an elephant or cap decisions or what-have-you.

I had thought it more of a cap move at the time, one where the least effective player was getting cut, and I questioned why the Canucks didn't waive or trade him instead of just shutting him down. The above from Murphy squares it away nicely, IMHO. Was what it was.

Juice named the captain of Team Canada @ the World Hockey Championships. Nice to see him that well respected around the league. Hope they do well (especailly him, Burr and J-Garr) and maybe bring home the gold, especially since we haven't won that one in awhile.

Wow, CoHo is on the team as well. :P

Good job Clam.....you show ONE example. The Canucks (allegedly) showed him video footage of multiple incidents. The fact that neither the PA nor Malhotra himself fought this should tell you that at the time the evidence was convincing enough, and not just one solitary close call.....which in this case wasn't all that scary looking.

But well done. Your lone clip is what it was all about. Asshat.

This isn't my lone clip, this is *the* clip that Dan Murphy was referring to. Its *the* clip that Gillis mentioned (where they were concerned that it could have been Cal Clutterbuck and not Dany Heatley). This is the exact video that ended Malhotra's season, and almost his playing career.

Stay classy Meds.

Unfortunately, it seems like it. Anything that touches our Canuck's core turns to shit. :(

Well, last year our team was still pretty good as we made the playoffs, just this year our team went to all time lows. *hehe* Team Canada won the last game and Burr + Garr helped in the scoreboard, maybe we still have a chance. :lol:

Pretty good? LOL!!!!!

5 and out to the Kings in the first round of 2012.

Swept by the Sharks in the first round of 2013.

No playoffs in 2014.

Look no farther than our regular season records against those teams since 2011 and then try again.

Yeah, no doubt our team really struggled in the playoffs, since that 2011 run. However, the team did "pretty good" in the regular season and made the playoffs, up till this season. Generally, if the team can make the playoffs, it's a "pretty good" year despite the playoff shortcomings. It wasn't really till this season that the team fell off the rails and looked like a complete disaster most nites starting in the new year.

Canucks did "pretty good" playing in a weak division in past years. The new balanced schedule plus divisional re-alignments made it a lot tougher to compete. The injuries on top of all that were a killer.

I"m not interested at this point in watching this team make the playoffs, only to lose in the first round. We need to build a team that can take on the tough teams in the conference and make the finals. And that has to be the plan for President Trev and the new GM. Let the re-build start. Please.
