Luongo on the other may get a late pick.

Three more years of him at 4.5 ? He plays 20 minutes a game ffs with good players and is a drag on any line he plays on. he should be working it out on the 4th line atm and killing penalties. This "slump" dates back to halfway through last season.

Prospal decides to retire instead.

We look like a fucking joke right now.

Gotta wonder what the proud Italian Aquilinis are thinking right now...

Main stumbling block was the PTO with Utica. Not interested in auditioning for a look see with the big club.

Not really concerned he said no. My fear though is now MG does something really stupid. Play the course, ride it out and go at it n the off season.

He should pick it up when his foot is fully healed (2014/15 season).

Otherwise I wonder if MG can be like to Burrows, I know I said I wouldn't ask anyone to waive their NTC's while on the canucks, but yo, we in a tough bind, we need change and someone's gotta go bro.

Yeah, this season could pretty quickly go down in a ball of flames. No stupid trades please!

I saw that Mikael Samuelson is on waivers. He's got a 3 mill contract, over 35, and has scored 1 goal, so of course the answer is no, fuck no, but when I first saw the name I thought, hmm, maybe at first. Times are tough. I say, give the kids more of a go, Schroeder and Jensen. they'll make mistakes, of course, but especially w/Jensen, let's start to see what he's got...find the answer within the org

Sammy is getting squeezed out by Detroit's plethora of young prospects. Vancouver on the other hand doesn't have the same "problem" so as long as there is no cap issues, I don't see any downside to picking him up.
