Good bye and good riddance to the yappy Frenchman.


I like Lappy but $3m is just ridiculous. Anything over $1.8m is just ridiculous...

Don't like Yappiere. The time Fiddler gave him a beat down after acting all cocky was an embarrassment

Both the 3rd and 4th line centre spots are prime locations for more “stiffness”, as Torts puts it.

Lapierre is all bark and little bite, unfortunately.

Three Million!?

For that bag of shit?

OK, he's a good 4th line center...

But do you guys realize how many penalties that guy's mere presence has cost MY Vancouver Canucks?!

If he played for anybody else you'd all want him dead, you fucking homers....

I would take him back at 1.25 for 2-3 years as he is a great fit on the 4th line. But more than that or longer term and he is a hindrance. I think he will Torres type of money, 2 million and a 3 year term. But that is still too much for us I think. I think they would like to see if Lain can step in and play on the 4th line although I'm not sure how good that is for his development, playing short minutes.

Mg has to do something. We have Hank, Kesler and JS going into camp so far.

Guys like Lapierre should be prime candidates to feel the squeeze in the cap crunch - if he gets $3m per from some team out there his agent should be using that as his calling card (like Player Agent Mike Gillis with that ridonk contract he got for Bobby Holik).

I dont think Lapierre will be back. Canucks need to change the way everyone views the organization and letting him go is part of it.

I doubt his replacement will be as good but his baggage is too much.

Lapiere...
An in your face agitator who ducks and runs and pisses the other team off,
like we have a glut of those.

Perhaps with a new coach who doesn't find it necessary to overly respect the other team and who doesn't speak French
Maybe lapiere has a place?

just musing here.

So we have Tom Gilbert being bought out by Minnesota, Filip Kuba getting a not-compliance buy out from Florida, Nathan Gerbe also getting a not-compliance buy out in Buffalo, Carlo Coliaiacovo getting a compliance buy out in Detroit.. Chicago is using their buyouts on Olesz and Montador, and of course the guys we already know about (Vinny, Briere, Bryz, Ballard, Komisarek, Kaberle)..

Grabovski on waivers in Toronto http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=426933

Knowing Nonis, he'll clear cap space with this move, then fail to sign anyone to fill that cap space :lol:

Better yet - he'll use the space to overpay Bozak!

I don't understand how this 48 hour thing works.

Wouldn't that push the Leafs past the deadline for the compliance buyout period if he was just put on unconditional waivers today?

It's Toronto, so you know the league won't care. Pretty sure they could buy the guy out two weeks from now with impunity if they wanted to.

I'd be surprised if Nonis didn't have David Clarkson on the brain being a TO kid and how he seems to fill many of their (similarly to our) needs.
