Thank God - wasn't bringing the physicality that made him a valuable 3rd-line centre back when he was with Anaheim.

Ditto. I think we can improve on Pahlsson, so am not disappointed to see that temptation taken away. Let's focus on signing our own Stoll / Peverley - I don't think Gaustad is good enough though.

Brad Richards, 3rd round
Johnathon Quick, 4th Round

Alfredsson: 6th Round
Kiprusoff: 5th Round
Ryan Miller: 5th Round

Is it common to find gems in the 4th round? No.

Ya... playoff rentals normally cost you a 2nd or 3rd pick. Us not going farther in the playoffs wasn't going to change even if Pahlsson was in his prime.

We just got beaten by a better team who was really rolling into the playoffs. Maybe if we had not been so surprised by them and had met them in a later round we could have been more ready... but our players seemed to be settling in and pacing for a long run and got destroyed by the eventual Cup champions before we were even into our groove.

Your utter failure in understanding math is stunning. Of course having 4th round picks is better than NOT having them... but picking out a few exceptions of players drafted in the later rounds (there are lots) doesn't equate to those picks generally having any value.

For every one drafted in later rounds that make the NHL, there are HUNDREDS who never do. So we rented Pahlsson and it cost us a tiny chance of drafting a player who would ever see a millisecond on our roster or even in the press box.

No one is complaining if we made a long run and he contributed. And if we went out in the 1st round and Gillis HADN'T made any moves to help us at the deadline you would be crucifying him for that.

In fact its an 8% chance a 4th rounder makes it in the nhl so ya not good odds and besides it frees up what 2.65mil to our cap so ya good deal for us and hope he does well for modo

He racked up a decent number of points for a 3rd liner and was able to clutch a few games for a W for The Canucks. I would have wanted to see him another year in the Canucks uniform since the team does need a center while Kesler recovers.

Gillis should have been aware that Kesler needed some recovery time and Hodgson could have filled his role.

Short sighted attitude. Not really as Kassian isn't a short term fit.

You know, there is a reason he will want 3+ million, its because he is one of the best checking line centres in the league. I would be pleased if we signed him on for 3 million. Not saying it is going to happen, just saying we could do much worse.

I think it is time to use players from our farm. >>>>>Jordan Schroeder<<<<<

No. Schroeder would not be successful as a checking line player.
