Great signing by MG. I mean, this is a big powerforward that hits a lot, and creates havoc on defenders by his ferocious forecheck. Big body that has the ability to block lots of shots because of that. Can't wait to see him at training camp.

I can see this player really pick up his game, in arenas where the ice tends to melt a bit.

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.

2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.

Cory Schneider is the next Patrick Roy.

The Canucks seem to be scouting deeper waters nowadays.

He also used to play as a goaltender but was quoted the Ocean News Daily to often "flop like a Luongo" ;)

Sometimes when he tries to block shots on the PK, he looks like a fish out of water, for whatever reason. Major flaw in his game.

gillis says "he took a hometown discount"

For all we know he could have a deal in place to sign Doan, and trade Luongo.

Maybe this is him sitting back enjoying himself after some hard work.
