Well the purpose of my post wasn't to post the video but rather to show Reefer how to embed images.

I can sum up my opinion of the Roy trade as follows:

Better than doing nothing.

I'm one of those that see Brendan Morrison when I see Roy. Mind you it has only been one game.

In his first game, he consistently tried to create opportunities off of the rush, in fact even tried to force passes when he would have been better off to cycle... I wonder if that's his style? Very opposite of the Sedins. I guess we'll see.

I think this is EXACTLY what the Canucks need. Too much cycle. Start forcing opponents to guess wether we attack the net off the rush, instead of constantly skating down the wall or doing the chip/chase.

I'm thinking a line like Booth-Roy-Raymond could score some great goals using speed off the rush (Booth crashing the net, of course).

I think it's an OK transaction, it will be interesting to see how much of a difference he will make over similar current Canuck - Jordan Schroeder.

He definitely is not worth the $5 - $6 million he thinks he will get this summer. Oh well, at least we will get a fleeting glimpse of him in a Canuck uni before we go back to fellow 5'-9"er Schroeder.

Personally, I think we should put Raymond back with Kesler once both are healthy, there was once a time when Kesler and Raymond had great chemistry and I think that could spark again with Raymond playing good hockey again. Kesler, Booth and Raymond may actually work cause Raymond is a heads up play making winger and might be the catalyst to gel'ing Kesler with Booth as the lines distributor. That is, if Booth ever gets healthy

I like the line of Higgins, Roy and Hansen

Put Burr back with the Hank and Dank.

Put Kassian with Weise and Lappiere for the playoffs as your crash and bang line.

Likely scenario.

Disagree. I do not want to see the old Raymond skating around the left wing "making plays" only to get squished like a bug on a windshield on the right boards and causing a turnover. He's successful because he is once again using his speed to take pucks with in the neutral zone then realeasing a very underrated shot or making a simple pass. He is picking and popping into open spots in the offensive zone for passes... and shooting it. Any time he starts hogging the puck and pounding into the ice, spinning and juking, the whole line suffers.

Kesler also needs to stop the puck-hogging and try to make some plays for his wingers or that line is going nowhere.

Booth? Let him just skate with his head down and drive the net. Don't expect any kind of cycling from that guy. Shit, put Ballard in there and it might work out better.

Morrison was more of a passenger on the WCE line. Whenever Bert or Naslund missed a game the line suffered. Roy has better hands, is a bit quicker, passes better, and I think has a better shot. I see Roy being a guy that instantly makes Higgins, Hansen, Raymond and Kassian, better players and threats to score. Morrison wasn't that kind of player.
