I would rather play with a shortened bench than Weise in the lineup.

Thanks for the Summit link. In amongst the nice warm handjobs was a few nuggets of info.

Torts is the bold move.

Tanev, Schroeder and Weise (announced this morning) are done.

These deals mean a full lineup but roster spots are still open for the youngsters.

Will not be pursuing vet depth help as that takes spots from the kids.

Big part of Torts hiring was his ability to get youngsters into the lineup. Torts says a big part of that is the work of Sullivan.

No to Brule getting a PTO as he offers nothing that isn't already in the organization.

Bobby Lou is fine.

A belief that Bo may make the roster. Thought he may go at #5.

Equal roars of laughter at Daly saying the league tells the refs that nothing changes for calling playoff hockey, a slicked downed de Bonis commenting on preseason ticket prices for seasons ticket holders.

Daly's excuse for the refs was # of new guys to the fold with the change to a two ref system, whats greater consistency from 1st period through 3rd period. Also said playoffs are different from regular season - live with it.

A good slam from GMMG directed at the TO media and TSN particularly regarding the goaltending trade rumour mill.

Horseface (could be Camillia's mother) season ticket holder lamented CoHo trade was slammed by Gillis and then taken to the alley and beaten by another season ticket holder.

Many of the season ticket holders and their friends seem to be of the cell phone to the ear, waving to the TV camera ilk.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

He's a very serviceable 4th liner making peanuts - what's your issue with that? He's not Crosby or Gretzky?

Serviceable and still young fourth liner for 750K?

No cap hit if he's in Utica. Same goes for Dale.

Some guy named Colin Stuart and a former 1R draft choice, Zach Hamill, are now Vancouver Canucks property.

Whoop Whoop.

Hamill, interesting, I recall Bruins being all up on his potential and then he fell off the map...sounds like a reclamation/Utica project.

New tower to be connected to Rogers arena, c/w sports bar, memorabilia centre, & (finally) more washrooms for the arena patrons. More towers to come later.

As expected, Aquaman is milking the marketing value of Canucks Sports & Entertainment....which increases the importance of Canuck success to him. Justifying the application of more resources to win. Which is good for Canuck fans. :drink:

Vancouver, B.C. - Vancouver Canucks President & General Manager Michael D. Gillis announced today that the Canucks have signed left wing Colin Stuart and centre Zach Hamill.

Stuart, 31, played for the Iserlohn Roosters in 2012.13, collecting 21 points (9-12-21) and 35 penalty minutes in 45 games played. Over the span of his NHL career, the Rochester, Minnesota native has recorded 13 points (8-5-13) and 26 penalty minutes in 56 games with the Atlanta Thrashers and Buffalo Sabres. The 6’2”, 205-pound forward was originally selected by Atlanta 135th overall in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.

Hamill, 24, spent the 2012.13 season split between the Hershey Bears (11-11-22 and 34 PIM in 40 GP), San Antonio Rampage (5-13-18 and 20 PIM in 26 GP) and the Milwaukee Admirals (3-1-4 in six GP). The 5’11”, 180-pound forward has appeared in 20 NHL games with the Boston Bruins, recording four assists. The Vancouver native was selected eighth overall in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft by the Boston Bruins.

2007 was a pretty good draft just looking at the top 10, wondering why Hamill never caught fire so far.
Just hoping Horvat isn't a bust too. You can never know, too many little things that kill...
