Haven't heard about this guy in a while. What is your guys take on him? I remember when we got him, he played a couple game earlier on, but the main idea was that he was gonna be used for depth, and then got sent down to the ahl. This guy was drafted 18th overall in the 05 draft (ahead of Letang and Yandle), he also won gold for canada at the 06 and 07 wjhc. Did this guy just not live up to his potential or, is he not capable of competing at the nhl level?

It's a Baumgartner type question: will he or will he NOT play ever again for the Canucks?

He was also drafted after Zagrapan, Pokulok and Bourret. It's just evidence that the draft can be a bit of a crap shoot sometimes.

No. There's nothing he can really offer. We have 6 d-men signed already, plus Salo and Gragnani who will likely re-sign (dunno about Rome). Even if injuries occur, the Canucks would probably bring up someone like Sauve or Connaution who has more upside. Which would put him what... 11th or 12th on the depth chart depending on if we acquire another d-man and who we re-sign? There's not really any reason for the Canucks to sign him.

Parent has fallen severely down the depth chart. Simply his game isn't good enough. He might be a late bloomer, but I haven't seen any progress; seems like a bust.

Parent might not ever be a depth defenseman. His AHL totals aren't good and when you can't produce at that level and your a prospect, you're pretty much a bust. A failed experiment.

He was outplayed on the Wolves by the Canucks' younger D, like Sauve, Connauton and Polasek. I think this is where the Canucks and Parent will just part ways. I don't even think there's a chance the Wolves sign him to an AHL contract. Some other NHL team will take a chance on him, though.

He played horrible for them and was taken out of the lineup I think after game 3, a game in which he had less then 2 minutes of ice time.

I see him as a depth player, couldn't hurt to sign him for the minors, I dotn see him making the team unless he really steps it up, but he is a darkhorse, and could turn out to be a surprise if he has a good camp.

He still is young at 25, I'd like to still get a good look at him before we call a close on the door with him. Considering that he started to play good in the last 10 games with the Wolves, hes bound to be given a second look.

Late -- yes. Bloomer -- no. The Canucks picked him up in return for Shane O'Brien but were really just trying to give O'Brien away. Parent can be a helpful guy on an AHL team, but that seems to be his ceiling.

Fringe player at best. Lets be honest, if you haven't made the NHL by your mid 20's as a regular, he is that age as of right now, then your chances of ever doing so are nearly shot.

The exception to Nashville's defenceman factory.

Weird that such a high draft pick and team Canada star would have this much trouble making the NHL, if only as a 7th or 8th defenceman.

Oh well.

Possibly, but if he was to make it as a regular, he should have done it by now.

I thought a contributiong factor to his situation is the number of games he's already logged in the NHL (106). He couldn't be brought up because he'd have to clear waivers, which he wouldn't. Even two years ago, he couldn't necessarily be used when the team's d-man situation was so difficult because they knew at some point someone else was coming back from injury and with limited space on the cap he couldn't just be left to sit in the pressbox.

I wouldn't be suprised if Gillis added him to a package deal, or allows him to try the field and see what he can get.

regards,
G.

He has been one of the stand out players in the games I saw him play in Chicago. I see he has put on 7 lbs and is now quoted at 205 lbs. I would bring him up and give him a chance based on his pedigree alone.

Also I think we should give Mancari another look, he was head and shoulders above everyone at Wolves apart from Haydar and Reinprecht (when he settled in) Mancari has a real hockey brain and he didn't look slow when he came up last season, only lacking in stamina like Bitz.

I didn't know


So you said he's a good player but you didn't know he played 2 mins in a game?? How's that work?
  • 0

The key difference is that Sopel can fill in for Seabrook and Campbell just fine. Bieksa, he is garbage so in that sense he is like the worst defenseman in the league.


When Cody (Hodgson) gets older, he might be better than Datsyuk.


Let's not push this guy (Kassian). He's still immature, and if he fails on the 2nd line it's because he isn't ready. Some guys really need years to develop, it's how well and how fast players adapt to the game. In my opinion, I'd rather have Horvat getting 2nd line minutes. He will start off on the 3rd line next season but I see him making the transition, being a great compliment to whoever plays his wings.

At this point, I don't see Kassian fitting in to any role other than a 3rd. If players like Kassian start getting 2nd line minutes then we just stay inconsistent as a team.

Gollumpus had it right, if he does not make the team out of training camp, he's not going to be brought up. Has to clear waivers where Sauve, Tanev, Connauton do not. He not only did not make the main roster,

He did not beat out Alberts or Sulzer for the spot in the press box available for guys like him.

Don't think so, he's probably a bust. He hasn't shown much promise in the pro ranks and the Canucks have a lot of defensemen ahead of him on the depth chart. Wish we could have been a bit more patient with the O'Brien trade and picked up more in return instead of just trying to get rid of him.
