Yeah it doesn't make much sense. Carry 8 D. It hasn't exactly been a secret around Vancouver that we need to carry the extra d-man for cases just like this one.

Rodin plays 0:00, if he's hurt, put him on the IR. If he's not, either play him or waive him. We're halfway through a season. We'll be into March before Willie trusts the guy enough to play him. Can't imagine the D being too happy to play with 5 (or 4) guys while the forwards have a dude sitting in the middle of the bench scratching his nuts for a full 60.

Why not dress Boucher as the 13th forward ?

Whining like Calpuke when the couldn't field a full line up a few year ago..... but it's your birthday and you'll cry if you want to......cry if you want to.

Vancouver carries 7 defenders.

What this back to back shows is how wimpy this team is. It was Friday's game that they didn't survive. Saturday was like four black kids beating up a cripple. You've got a pre pubescent little boy trying to play defence. A small forward core that can't slow the forecheck by creating one of their own. It highlights why guys like Sven and Granlund are placeholders.

The rebuild is in progress and takes time.

Gotta agree Blob. If Rodin was dressed just so they could have a full compliment of bodies but he is hurt so WD didn't plan to use him unless he was forced to, dress Boucher....


It was obvious on Friday Rodin got hurt. He was taken into the boards and when he got back to the bench he was in obvious pain, rubbing his knee and pointing to it when the trainer came over. After that he looked laboured on the ice. I think I even commented on it during the game.

I give them a pass on only having 5 D because of the Hutton situation but it is inexcusable to dress Rodin,who is labouring, over a healthy Boucher. Especially if the plan was to bench him any way. Who knows, a healthy Boucher in his first game may be juiced enough to pot a goal.

This is Willie we're talking about, he wouldn't have played Boucher either...
