  1. I noticed nobody is including Sautner, Brisebois, Teves, Jassek, Chatfield, Baily. Is this because they are to old or just not good enough?
  2. I voted twice. Didn't know i could do that. Hope he wins! @GoNUmhockey
  3. I wouldn't mind trading for or singing a Russian vet who has a lot of NHL respect to help Podkolzin into the league. Maybe like Evgeny Dadonov
  4. I think the comment about him being excellent at shot blocking and on the PK was really promising. Him having a good first pass is something I think all of us already knew as well as being patient with the puck. I am interested in his PP point shot. I would like to see him develop this as a weapon like Salo did.
  5. Mitchell Chaffee looks like he would be a great pick up if we could get him. Has the tools needed to succeed in the AHL. Could be another College signed player that makes the NHL. Being from Michigan he would probably want to play for Detroit.

  6. He gets a pass from me. He left everything he had out on the ice for this team. That game 7 took so much out of him. I don't want to be a fan who holds grudges like that to our ex players. Im sure he has regrets with how things ended. Vancouver can be his second home if he still wants it. Lets show him some love even if you don't think he deserves it. Its time this market was the bigger person. Also respect to the OP for starting this discussion.
  7. The KHL seems like a great development league for him. No rush. Still lots for him to learn in that league. When he comes to North America he should be able to step into the NHL and be an impactful player.
  8. Canucks should pass. We need another JT miller type who can crash and bang and stand up for teammates if necessary. Maybe Chris Kreider
  9. Calgary looking for speed and skill for top 6 wing. He might be a buy low gamble worth taking
  10. I think that his will. I have had severe brain injuries and I recognized the brain agitation in his interviews during training camp and his game play was clearly different than usual. That Tom Wilson hit really did a number on him. He tried to fight through the injury but this is an injury you can't fight through. Ferland is as stubborn as they come and refused to believe he was hurt. Your brain is swollen and it just takes time to heal. Then he went and got in a fist fight with Kyle Clifford while having fresh brain trauma to prove he is fine and it messed him up more. He tried playing again a short time later but the symptoms returned. He needs to heal and be away from contact hockey for a few months. Im sure he would like to play tomorrow if he could but i think Canucks management is getting counselled by doctors and they recognize that he needs to get healthy first. Canucks management might let him play in the playoffs if we need him. But the best thing for him would be to rest and heal and have a good off season then be ready for camp in September. Any small bump or hit he receives this season will just re aggravate the brain injury.
  11. I have been routing for Lockwood all along. I would like to see him make the move to Utica and continue his development on that roster. His speed and energy will help him at the pro level. Next year we could have Lockwood, Rathbone, and Madden all playing together in Utica.
  12. I wonder if Utenen is worth bringing over to Utica next season?
  13. Keep Ferland out till the playoffs, or else next seasons training camp. Brain injuries can not be rushed. It takes about a year before you can reintroduce contact
  14. Blues looking to win now and they have the cap space to make an add and boost their bottom 6. Sutter is a smart player that coaches can rely on. Canucks get a young big prospect who is finding his way in the AHL.
