PK Subban seems to be getting the contract lowball. Could be an offer sheet or trade target.

His yap & tude (on the ice & in the dressing room) may be hurting him.

Is this guy supposed to play for the Wolves this season?
Yup!
I'd like to see where this kid is at 2 years down the road. If he can turn out to be a Burrows/Lapierre clone ready for 3rd line duty, I would be quite pleased. He may turn out to be a Maxime Talbot type which, again, would put a smile on my face.

Jury's very much out, but we'll see what he does come training camp. It's better news than him holding out or something. ;)
Love the Sport. Love the Team.

He's a 20 years old late-blooming grit guy or so I hear?

PK looks like an intensely competitive young man who doesn’t easily settle for mediocrity. Not someone who easily tolerates the likes of Gomez or the Kostitsyn brothers on the club. Not someone smiled upon by a mediocre organization that doesn't want problems highlighted.

I like his tude. He got swagger, to the point of being brash, but with talent to back it up. He could take his game to the next level on a contending team with a mature core.

The friction between PK & club might be used by another team to trade for a good young talent at a good price….& Marc Bergevin might not want to trade him to the Eastern conference. He’d look good in a Canucks uniform.

I'm thinking this might be a big challenge for Archibald this training camp. Maybe fitter, faster, and determined. If he flunks out again it might well be his last chance to show his stuff to a panel of experts without getting a preconceived idea he's not good enough.

Any one know where Bitz has gone, just out of interest before poster start making assumption
cheers

Fred he is an unrestricted free agent at this point.

But the real question is, who rejected who? ;)

Do the Aquilini bro's have to pay that or McCaw? I'm assuming AquaBros.

Anyways I hope the Canucks beat the NYR in the finals, how fitting that would be!

We'd definitely need Doan for that grinding final.

Thanks for clarification.

And there goes a little less than half of the 2011 Cup final revenue, happy I'm not one of the Aquabros right now as shit hit the fan in private Aquilini business right now, luckily season tickets are always sold out for years. :mad:

I've heard that #Dallas #Detroit are the teams interested in Keith Ballard
IF we get Ellerby in the trade from Florida, Ballard can be traded for a 2nd and a AHLer dman.

Like I said numerous times now Ballard this month onwards is a commodity for teams looking for a top 4 left side two way dman.

Why are you assuming 'if we get Ellerby'? There have only been two names speculated by the media in these so-called Florida Panthers rumors and those are Bjugstad and Theodore. Plus, why the hell would we want another left shot/left sided defenseman? We essentially would be replacing Ballard with a defenseman who naturally plays the same side as him???

Why in the hell not replace Ballard for a cheaper bigger younger defensively better dman????

Additionally Ellerby plays the right side. :shock:
