One correction, Bowie’s contract ends after next season, not this season. That’s how he fills the expansion draft rule for a Dman under contract next season, so they won’t need to expose Myers or Schmidt.

Bowey has been a massive disappointment since leaving the WHL I don’t expect much from him

He’s just expansion draft protection. They have to expose a Dman that is under contract next season.

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

The guy is brilliant. He sucked Bowman right into that 4th rounder for Bowey with the added bonus being the Canucks dropping down a round in picks instead of picking Bowey up on waivers and not giving the Hawks anything. Great expansion draft chess right there. All part of the plan.

Is Vin Tanner Pearson still in hiding? Has he waded in on the discussion yet?

It's too bad Adam Gaudette didn't take his career a little more seriously. Few years back in the Canuck's Summer Showcase he was dipsy doodling around with the puck and scoring goals at will right along with Elias Pettersson. Looked like he was to be a big time sniper and a real force to be reckoned with for the team. Couldn't do it when it started to matter though. That and he just allowed too many distractions to effect his game. Whether he was a bit of a light weight or not, he could have played with more of a physical edge. I think Travis Green could have done a far better job with him but at the end of the day, it's on him and he blew it.
