GET THIS DONE. 3 year contract.

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.


The idiocy on CDC....

I think Doan will come here if he decides against playing in Phoenix. Gillis must really want him and I guess it doesn't hurt to have Gillman here in Vancouver who has an old relationship with Doan.

Great Top 9. Need to do some fixing on our 4th line and add depth on D and we're set!

Maybe trade May Ray for Yannik Weber? He could become a good top 4 some day and he is young and RD

So many bonuses to signing Doan:
  • adds "size-that-can-play" to the top-6
  • will get to the front of the net in the playoffs - something the Canucks have struggled to do against bigger teams
  • will help Kesler get through the playoffs healthy by freeing up Kesler to not always having to be the net-front guy at even strength and the PP - gives AV another right-handed shot option of the PP if Kesler is taking too much of a beating
  • will take the pressure of Kassian from having to make the team - Canucks can develop him properly. If Kassian is ready great, if he's not, then he can develop in Chicago.
  • adds a vocal leadership that MIGHT be missing - can keep Kesler, Burrows and Lappy accountable
  • lastly (and maybe most importantly), will allow guys like Kesler, Booth and Burrows to just play their game, and not have to try and be power-forwards when they're really not built for it. Hopefully it will allow those three to maximize performance, and allow them to get through the season/playoffs in one piece.

#canucks have been after Shane Doan for last 3 seasons. Now could be first chance to get him

.

Found this tweet interesting by Jeff Angus. Did not know the Canucks wanted him for that long.


Also on a random note I love Rick Dhaliwal who is the sports director at News1130. The guy has major scoops and contacts and tends to get a lot of info about players and teams.


The guy has put news1130 on the map for having inside scoops

I would love this signing. Doan can show Kassian what it takes to be a top power forward in the NHL.

Q: he is 35. Would we want to give him a 3 year deal? If he retires he is still on the books.

Q2: would he take a 1 year deal?

Q3: is he worth the risk of a long term (3 year) deal anyways?

From me: Yes, No, Yes...
