I hate watching the Canucks lost to a team like Columbus. Unfortunately, the Canucks were playing without two of the top six defensemen, a 2nd line centre, and a 3rd line centre. If you take the same type of players off Pittsburgh, Detroit or Chicago, I am not sure how many games they could win even against teams like Columbus or Calgary.

However, I agree this team really badly needs a 3rd line centre to replace Lapierre/Raymond/Schroeder. Lapierre has shown that he could be a temporary 3rd line centre but not a permanent one. Raymond just could not win a faceoff. Schroeder is not doing much offensively, especailly when he is playing with Weise and Sestito.

Two seasons ago, people complained about the Canucks having too much skilled but soft players. Now, they have two power forwards, Kassian and Booth, who carry the pucks to the net with authority. Kassian is young and Booth just came back from injury a few games ago. In the last few games, they created numerous chances. With a little luck or a more skillful centre, they could have potted a few goals.

Raymond has been good this year but he is still too soft. Higgins is rugged but not as talented as Raymond. Both players will be UFAs this summer. Assuming Booth stays, MG can only afford to keep one of Higgins and Raymond for the third line left winger. Perhaps it is time to sell high and get a 3rd line centre in return.


Either Higgins or Raymond is a better option than Booth, and way cheaper.
Keep 'em both and say goodbye to Booth
Unless MG can unload Booth then he's a buyout.

Therefore, there is tangible evidence to support my statement.


I produced tangible evidence proving the top line has been awesome over the last 11 games.

The very 11 games you keep complaining about.

They have indeed lived up to their very loft standards over the last 11 games

Odd time to complain about the top line, in the midst of complaining about the last 11 games,

.... but then you're an odd guy amirite? :mex:

Mondi wrote:As whole, the team hasn't been good enough. As you know SL there are a constellation of factors contributing to their recent slide. I was merely discussing the role GMMG has played in that, which is not providing enough depth at forward through various moves and non-moves. However, I went on to say that the team is only in a funk and is lacking two key pieces. Once those pieces are back the team should right itself. I just hate to think the team is two players away from .400 hockey given the team's relatively significant recent successes.


Here's some tangible evidence: Your Vancouver Canucks are 9-3-4 without Kesler in the lineup.

Put THAT in your pipe and smoke it! :mex:

Your Vancouver Canucks are 2-3-2 with Kesler in the lineup.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

Kesler had a broken foot for all but half of one of those games.

Too bad the Nucks went there to give rather than receive.


Isn't it better to give than receive?
