As long as Rome is in the system, and as long as Alain is our coach, Rome will play. He'll play. You bet he'll play. He'll play on a first pairing. And he'll play at Rogers Arena

I fear that you are right. But you forgot to mention the power play time.

wouldn't mind have keeping him, if we didn't sign Alberts last year -_- why Rome is miles better than Alberts, and that says a lot.

I like him on left wing,with his hits on the forecheck..I actually saw opposing forwards double check where he was...when he did catch a Dman he made them pay..4th line minutes maybe?..

What negativity??? I have seen very little negativity

Seriously? The only player that I can think of that generates more negativity than Aaron Rome is Mason Raymond.

Rome has been maligned on this board for so long, it's hard to remember a time when he was appreciated at all. We even have a Mod who's supposed to be a player slagging him in this very thread.

Sometimes I find the ignorance of CDC posters truly staggering. Here we are a week or so after LA won the Cup with one superstar defenseman and a bunch of big, solid, physical guys who although not particularly fast, play within their capabilities and are an effective unit because of it.

Yet in the minds of CDCers, a similar player such as Aaron Rome, (who comes with the added benefit of a reasonable Cap hit, BTW) is the "worst defenseman ever".

I'll just say "well said" to the few of you who stood up for AR in this thread. (TOM, Bodee, Inconvenience, etc.)

Yeah, and it might have cost us the cup. Up until that point it was still a tight series with us having the slighter edge. I will be very glad when he departs with this organization.

If we truly lost the Cup because one of our defensemen destroyed an opposing player with a hit and we couldn't handle the resulting rally cry of the opposition, then we didn't deserve to win.

FTR: The Canucks killed the 5 minute major with relative ease. It all went south when Eddie's stick abandoned him on a routine clearing pass which the Canucks were unable to recover from, resulting in a floater goal that Luongo somehow failed to track.

That goal was what gave the Bruins momentum.

AV is the reason Rome took all that flack. He is a #7 D-man who was playing WELL ABOVE HIS COMFORT ZONE in a top-4 role at many times...

I'm not sure where you get this from. Rome rarely played in the top 4 and when he did, it was because injuries necessitated the move.
Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!
