#Canucks puts Port Coquitlam native Zach Hamill on unconditional waivers.


Are the Canucks going to buy him out? Will it cost any cap space for the Canucks since he was signed by the Canucks?

Too bad, I was rooting for the local kid like I was rooting for Magic Mike. Hamill has to take a page from Santorelli. He has to work his butt off in the off season, come to camp in great shape and play every shift like it's his last in the NHL. He has the talent, but I hear he likes the booze a lil too much.

Can't buy him out during the season.

Perhaps freeing up a spot on the 50 NHL contracts list seeing we're heading into a trade freeze?

Yep. They are going to terminate his contract and part ways.

Peter Chiarelli's first NHL draft pick... epic bust.

Don't tell RD. Let him keep thinking MG is the only one who can make bad draft day decisions. It's more fun that way :mrgreen:

Wouldn't it be a real kick in the teeth if Gillis true 2013 1st round pick - Shinkaruk (Horvat was acquired via Nonis prized 1st round pick - Schneider) gets cut from the WJC'S and the two players - Anderson and Leier who were picked with the two 4th round picks gillis gave up for the great shut down centre Sami Pahlsson, make the team? Ouch

Even if that happens, so what?? Do you know lots of successful NHL players not making the junior teams? Patrick Roy, and Al MacInnis never made the Canadian Junior Team but they went on to Hockey Hall of Fame... Martin Brodeur did not make the Junior squad and won 3 Stanley Cups. What is your point??

There are also some best junior players that never made an impact in the NHL.

Now Horvat doesn’t count as a Gillis draft pick because the Horvat pick was acquired by trading Schneider who was drafted by Nonuts?

Oh boy…
:lol:

Torts on Stanton. He will be out for weeks. A long tine. It will be weeks. No further comment. On LTIR.When I saw the replay it seemed apparent that his ankle snapped back and almost folded under him. Haven't heard officially but I do suspect it is broken. Hopefully we can see him back after the Olympic break.

Edler isn't close to returning yet either. Don't know much more than that.

Torts will go with both Alberts and Weber. Not planning a call up at this time.

Hopefully Stanton broke something, and it's not a soft tissue injury. My first reaction was high ankle sprain, which would be bad. Too bad as he was playing well.

Edler won't play until January.

Alberts against Chicago tomorrow? *shudder*
