I dunno Donny it seemed to me there were a few games where they had more than enough healthy bodies.

Wotever, he's gone, no biggie.

I'll miss Rome though, he was a solid 3rd-line fill-in kinda guy on a cheap contract... who knew our system.

Looks like Gillis is trying to sell Schultzie on Canuckland, no Grags/Rome/Salo means less competition! :wink:

Surprising to see Duco let go like that. Our little ball of hate was apparently too little to MG's liking... :eh:

I don't get that one either.

Hopefully they re-sign Bitz....

I mean "wotever" in regards to him being gone.

I still think they look rather foolish for forcing Grags into games just to keep him from becoming a UFA

..... then they let him become a UFA.

Better to look foolish for letting him walk in July than look foolish for signing him come October..

Donny, after your Vancouver Canucks win a Cup, would you please consider continuing to post here?

I'm looking for someone to vicariously live my life through.

Actually they look foolish in June for trading for him in February and forcing him into the lineup in March! :D

Either MAG was less of a consideration in the Hodgson deal than we thought, or it reflects poorly on Gillis.

I think he was the look see. They liked what did in the playoffs and wanted a longer look so on a hope and a prayer they landed him.

Now they are clearing the deck it seems.

IMO it doesn't reflect well on the Pro Scouts. Let's take a look ?? Better they had got a lower round pick.

Or perhaps shuffling it.

Bit surprised on Rome, he played some good hockey here despite the fan angst directed his way.

MAG was terrible, 100% agree on letting him walk.
