another squandered asset by the Canucks. Shirokov should have stuck with the big club a couple of times this season, especially when MayRay had an epic 2 month drought.... Isn't that why we have prospects?

I don't know enough about who's running the show to put the blame on AV or MG... but at some level, someone is making stupid decisions with this team. (Why the frack didn't Schneider play game 6 in Boston, why wasn't Ballard used at all during the season, so when we needed him he wasnt a part of the team)

We're trying to model the Detroit system where you let a guy develop in the minors. The only part we miss is that you slowly work the guy in and give him a chance. Our GM seems to have forgotten that part. More young talent leaving our organization that was never given a chance. sigh.

He got his chance, he's just too small.

Not surprising, really. Didn't get a shot. He'd be playing in Florida or Long Island.

Unfortunately Sergei does not have what it takes to crack our roster and he is not going to sit in the minors for another season, and uproot to Chicago now. He will go back to Russia and make good money to play with his countrymen now that he has failed to make NHL. The Russian factor comes into play for sure, it's not our management squandering him away.

Another reason why you dont see too many Russians get drafted anymore. The option of staying in the KHL for more money (tax free) is more attractive. Wish we wouldve dealt Shirokov for something at least... he never fully got a chance here.

This is exactly why you are seeing no Russians drafted anymore. If things don't go their way they just bolt back to Russia. So unless its an Ovechkin type guy, you won't see teams drafting Russians any longer.

Best of luck to Sergei.

Time to take it to a new level.....

wow bit of a surprise but because he is Russian not a surprise. Let me sum up his career. Liked the kid cause he wanted to play in the NHL and said he was going to stick it out. Had a good second year with the moose and according to Noel a strong playoff. For the upcoming season thought it would be tough to make the team but never say never. Was surprised to hear that despite his resolve to make the NHL that he was at times weak in maintaining conditioning and building strength. As said thought it would be challenging to make the nucks but thought for sure because of his pretty good AHL season and the fact the nucks are pretty deep that somewhere he would get an NHL shot. For him to go back to me is really bad timing on his part. Sounds like he was running out of money. Felt he had a shot somewhere this year and was whether it was in a nuck uni or not I would be cheering for him. disappointed he pulled the plug without one last go at it - especially when he was his most ready for the jump.

The guy came over here to play in the NHL.

He got 2 games in 2 years.... uh????

Showed more effort than most foreign prospects would have in the A.

Maybe deserved better. He looked good when he got his chance.

Disheartening for him.

Who do we pin this on?
Don't blame Shiro for wanting to play and get paid. At all.

Miller is not on our list. It's Lack as our #1. There is no reason we would have traded both Schnieder and Luongo if we never intended to give Lack the #1 starting job.  Furthermore, the salary and term Miller is looking for is not in our favor.

No trade value.

Other GMs weren't fooled by his all-star AHL ability. He was too slow and small to be an NHL winger.

Russian Wellwood, sans faceoff ability.

It's better than him lighting it up for another team at least.

I would be pleased as punch if you pressed this green button.

Sergei did NOT bolt. He was chased away by our precious "coach" - and I use the term advisedly. Two games in two years is just plain idiocy! Gee, thanks a bundle, you dumb oaf, you are solely responsible for giving him no chance at all. Drink that with your morning coffee!
