Burke.



Burke.



This.


Burke has already tried turning the team over to a guy that hadn't played an NHL game. Didn't turn out so good. Burke is looking for a proven commodity.

Meh, who is going to through a big offer sheet at a guy with no NHL experience?

And if its not that big we would match it!

Hey guys but did not see this posted yet.. (not sorry)

Now we are going to have to match other offers. What sort of offers will other team throw at lack?

he has yet to play a NHL game so I don't see many offer sheets for him to be fair. It's quite a risk for teams to sign him.

This happens fairly regularly with young guys coming out of their first contract. If Lack wants to stay, he and his agent will work something out. If he is signed to an offer sheet, the Canucks may or may not match.

The Canucks are still looking to add Doan, who will not come cheaply. Once this situation is taken care of, the smaller roster pieces will start falling into place. Every dollar in cap space is valuable right now with only $3M left.

In the overall scenerio of potential goalies Lack must be in the upper tier...and certainly not far from being NHL ready. Most NHL goalies pass through the AHL so not a stretch to think Lack is close. I'd think a great insurance policy for NHL teams !! This BS of MG low balling players to play for Canucks is wearing thin. He can only play that card so often.!!

Yes, we should definitely pay big money for someone that hasn't played a single game in the NHL. MG is not lowballing everyone. This is a standard qualifying offer to keep his rights. Now they need to sit down and negotiate. Do you do anything other than piss and moan about Luongo and Gillis?

simple explanation, Eddie's lacking (no pun intended) enough opportunities with the :canucks: to play with the big club, with the logjam created by having Lu and Cory around for the long term (at least until one of them gets moved).

at least he's still an RFA though, and hopefully if he's unwilling to sign MG could flip him to another team like Jersey or Columbus needing goalies to get hopefully a young piece in return.

I personally think Lack will end up being better than both Schneider and Luongo.

He's most likely playing in the AHL next year, and he's not going to get a 1-way contract. Therefore I'm guessing that the issue is his AHL salary. The qualifying offer is a set amount and after rejecting it, he's still an RFA. So I don't see how this sort of response is really warranted.

Lots of people on this forum seem to complain about how they don't get paid as much as pro athletes, how they don't really deserve what they get, etc. It's not only "just part of the business", it's how the world works. No one really gets paid what the general public feels they're worth. Usually it's a matter of there being incredibly high demand for the absolute best/most popular (pro sports, movie stars), companies having more money than they know what to do with (drug companies), or a genuinely difficult/important position (any executive positions). If you're ranting about how overpaid pro sports players are, really you're ranting about the way the world works.

Another argument is that society would be pretty crappy if everyone was simply "content" with what they had. You don't have to look far to see how this attitude would ruin hockey. After all, once you've made the NHL, why bother winning the cup? Why bother fighting for a first line role? Outside of hockey, well, if no one had any desire to make improvements, we sure wouldn't have the Internet, and we'd all be living in caves.


I doubt he is after a 1 way contract, unless the Canucks are going to give him a serious look at the backup job. He may be just trying to get a raise on his NHL salary, as his AHL salary is pretty standard. He may be confident enough to think he can pull the backup job, and he may very well be right.

Maybe Gillis requested Lack not to accept the qualifying offer. To give the perception that the canucks don't have an abundance of NHL goaltenders. Hence, to give the perception that we are not in a hurry to move lou bc we only have two NHL goalies in the system.
2nd place is the 1st loser

His offersheet would have paid him 600K at the NHL level, so can't blame him for rejecting and waiting for a better deal to come up with the Canucks to just sign him out right.

we need a veteran backup. Lack might not be ready to take on 15~20games assignment.

Thats the plan pal. Ride the goalie while he's hot, and ship his a$$ outta here when he's cold. The harsh reality of business I'm afraid.
