In game 1, on one of the penalties the green men brought out a sign that read "This is for Rypper"

Crazy. I don't think all fans understand what Rypien embodied. Heart, emotion, and grit. That is not this team.

What I'd do to have had Rypien here for this series.



I hope the Canucks will show me this in game 4.

Everyone knows what Rypien was all about.

* It was a great sign, but the green men aren't the same (getting worse, although this was a nice tribute).

Right now I wish wetcoster was here, but anyone know why the Canucks didn't even re sign him? I know, it doesn't mean anything now, but he signed a 700 000 Contract with the Winnipeg Jets. After seeing what he did in that shift, theres no way in hell, we couldn't afford a guy like on our team. Let alone 700k, give him 800k....

 

Well, I , I feel very good about this draft, but I, I think, potentially you know were gonna have 3 or 4 NHL players out of this group, ummmm, you know like we are not going to prejudice to were they are from.

Every time I see videos of Rypper I feel so sad. Such heart and passion. Hopefully the Canucks can pull at least one out for RR. RIP

sorry to change the tone of the thread but...I was watching something a while ago about ryp when he and burrows first go into the team. If i recall ryp was playing maybe third line ahead of burrows then ryp broke his leg, burrows took his spot and ran with, and the rest is history. So my question is did that leg fracture set him back a lot, (hockey wise-not fighting wise). was there a time when skill wise ryp was better than burrows? anyone around back then that can chime in?
i am from oz. so didnt get to watch any of the games. maybe i just completely messed up and none of this really happend. sorry if so. :)

please be gentle with my posts...I am Australian, hockey isnt my first language.

In his last season you can tell he's got hands and scored a few pretty goals.

It's possible he just wanted to sign in Winnipeg. He's got a lot of history there with the Moose and from what I could tell had a very close relationship with the management/organization. I was very glad for him when he signed with the Jets as it felt like a homecoming for him. It could very well be the case that Gillis did offer Ryp a contract and he just chose to go to the Jets.
