For a website dedicated to prospects you'd think they'd have heard of Lack, Eriksson and Cannata.

It's amazing, every other post in the Canuck forum over there reads like this:Blob Mckenzie wrote: Bunch of drama queens.
Maybe they just need time to get their heads around this.
Mind you Gillis didn't make it easy on.... the more fragile... Canuck fans.
Can't remember a team ever pretty much declaring they were going to trade a big-contract player
.... + said player pretty much declaring he wanted outta town
.... and then it turning out that said player remains with said team.
Can't remember that ever happening.
Though of course there's never been a season where cap was shrinking and the contract ran to... old age.
So 'first time for everything'?
There IS a risk LOU might not be able to get his head around this.
And THAT is scary.... on the surface.
But when you think about it, if that happens he holds out and his contract gets voided.
Hey I'm happy.
I was one of the ones arguing for Lou in the Luongo-Schneider debates last year.
I finally gave it up when "Team Management" seemed to hand the ball to Schneids.
That and the fact that, like I say, it's never happened before....
Then i turned into one of those "Shut the hell up about trading Schneids" guys.
Ummm sorry about that.
I can't argue about the assets added to your Vancouver Canucks organization today, that's for damn sure.
And I never stopped believing in Lou.
Interested to see what other changes are made between now and October....
