I wonder if Zack MacEwen has a good camp and start to the season if Vladimir Virtanen might get moved. Attach him or Olli Juolevi to Lois Eriksson and see if you can’t get rid of him.
You’re a beaut Willy McWoozles. Olli is a beauty, but id have no problem moving out The Flake to get rid of Eriksson, I like MacEwan, not too mention we have some solid young wingers in the wings. You can’t fix stupid, plus he’s just a fucking winger, least important position. Ollie ain’t going nowhere, Moonshine.

Beauty setup by Leivo.

Nice breakaway goal by Ferkland (out-skating Hughes).

Petey Forsberg wins the shootout.

I really want Zack to succeed, his size and strength and the fact he’s a legit heavyweight fighter is an extremely enticing player. If he can play pk and take over for motte that would give the team 3 legit guys that can scrap, the days of having to back down can finally be over. Maybe we can be the bullies now.

#Canucks Coach Travis Green says he hasn’t decided yet which players will suit up tomorrow in split squad games vs Calgary. Adds he’ll be behind the bench for the game in Victoria.

Travis Green says the #Canucks may re-assign some players to Utica before the pre-season games tomorrow, but they haven’t finalized that decision as of yet.

Travis Green won’t reveal lineups for tomorrow’s split-squad games. Asked if the #Canucks’ AHL staff will manage the bench in Calgary, Green says the club will “mix it up”.

I’m not ready to run Jake out of town just yet. I just am a bit frustrated with the kid. I like MacEwen but I don’t think he’s a penalty killer at the NHL level.

I’d keep Motte for now. He’s a good penalty killer and he works hard

Don't see any urgency to move anyone at this point, but when the regular season starts they might just send a vet on waivers to Utica, that might be interesting.

It's a lot of forwards up front right now, something's gotta give eventually, should be a hyped up pre-season!

I won't be giving up on Jake any time soon.

Hey, they can't all be smart amirite? :D

I'd like to see him with Petey in the preseason.

Petey can do the thinking for the both of them.

This will be my third and final year of hoping Virtanen breaks out lol, after that I'm go full trade Virtanen for whatever you can get mode, hopefully he'll become a top 6 winger, but my hopes are fading fast.

I'll give him until Christmas... He got a big virtual slap upside the head this week, and now we get to see how he responds. Initial reports say he's pissed off and working to redeem himself. Let's see how the effort looks once he's comfortable in his slot (assuming it's in Van).

Goldy's in the same boat - show me what ya got, kid!

I want to keep virtanen as well, I think we finally got guys on the team that will have his back if he starts throwing his weight around. If macewen can make the jump in the next year or two that’ll really help with team toughness as well. I think motte is just a placeholder cheap depth for now.

Jake responded by throwing a fit and trying to kill some of his teammates at camp.

Don't write the man-child off yet. Let's see if Green/Darth Sidious can harness Anakin's anger and unleash a caged gorilla at opponents.

But to be fair, JV is as dumb as Hayden Christensen's portrayal of Darth Vader.
