Re: Finally!!!! Cowan on Waivers

Cowan certainly had heart but he is just another plugger/fourth liner on our team we don't really need. I would rather fill the spot with a younger guy who has some potential down the road to be a regular.

Re: Isbister cut!

Not surprising ... a player with some talent but just doesn't seem to have enough drive to play in the "Bigs".

Re: The Wellwood Factor

It's funny how there are a few players in the NHL that teams just give chance after chance after chance ... they have tons of potential but it never gets to the point where it is realized for whatever reason. Wellwood is just another one of those guys that the Canucks are "trying out" and hoping wil...

Re: Savard rumoured to be on the block?

Decent player who always seems to put up good numbers ... 170 G 405 A for 575 points in 659 games ... another small player who had some injury problems for a few years but contributes well in the offensive department. Why is he on the block ... only seems to stick around on teams for 2 or 3 years ? ...

Re: The Speed of Which Raymond Will Goeth

The only thing that will prevent Raymond from playing 82 games is fatigue. That could possibly be true ... that has always been the knock on some of the smaller players in the league that the contstant grind of the season wears them out as opposed to a bigger player who physically seems to handle i...

Re: A little Moore Bertuzzi news

Bottom line is, he could have played hockey again if that was where his heart was...he never made any attempt to rehabilitate and make a comeback. Instead he looked at the money his lawyer and family were talking and apparently decided that was a sure thing. IMO the bottom line for him was he never...

Re: Robert Lang traded to Montreal (No Sundin for Habs)

I guess it's down to NYR or Toronto now. I still feel that Sundin will retire though. Also, all it took to get Lang was a 2nd round pick? That's an absolute steal for the Habs. He had 54pts with the Blackhawks last year and was 4th in team scoring behind Kane, Sharp and Toews... Why couldn't we get...

Re: Sundin on TSN - No Closer to a Decision

Hopefully the Sundin talk can now just go away. ... and maybe the Nucks Management can also move on now ... I am all for being patient but they need to figure out what they are going to do this season to compete for a playoff spot. It's asking a whole lot to put this season on Lou's back ... I'd su...

Re: Mark Parrish

Some average stats in the last few years ... high teens to mid twenties for goals. We are right now a seriously offensively challenged team so we need to be considering something... Sundin is not going to happen right now and may not even be possible until the New Year (based upon his comments that ...

It is an odd date to be sure and one that I WILL NOT MISS. and its Against Edmonton.

Re: Sundin on TSN - No Closer to a Decision

Not sure if the link was posted so here is another update to the saga ... basically Sundin says that he will NOT make a decision before the season starts and that he might join part way through the year.

Re: Isbister Signs With Sens

Not surprising ... talent but unfortunately just can't seem to put it together consistently. Another stop for him on his way out of the league. Amazing how many teams try him out though hoping he will live up to any potential he might have.

Re: Plan B......& Plan C

All I can say is that I hope MG has been contemplating a "Plan B and or a Plan C" ... cause to me it has been pretty obvious the last month or so that Sundin isn't really interested in coming to Vancouver. The offer as lucrative as it is ... is not what he really wants. Maybe I am wrong ... we'll se...
