Maxim Lapierre, one of the more under-rated players on the team

42 posts in this topic

That's becaus everyone in the league hates him, but we love him.

Successful troll is successful.

He had great chemistry with Burrows playing on the 1st line with Henrik when Daniel was injured. Showed he is capable of playing a much larger role in a pinch.

Great player when he keeps his mouth shut and just plays the game.

He's a great player for us... A great trade for him, and great signing by Gillis...

He reminds me of Hansen.. Hardworking, Loyal, Skillful, Speedy, Hits a lot, Can drop the gloves, Can put up some points, Has heart, Can play on any line, Can defend the against the league's top players... and Lappy wins a lot of Faceoffs.

Lappy (and Hansen) are great players to have on your team.. They can do it all, and do it well.

I'm not sure how most Canucks' fans reacted when we first got Lappiere, I was so excited, I knew he'd be a perfect fit for the team, I just love agitators.

I hope we keep him until he decides to retire.

All of the above. He just seems to love the game and that translates into endless energy and determination. Love him on this team...

Lappy is a keeper.

No idea why the mgmt never kept together Lappy,Burr and Henrik.

Mgmt seemed to shuffle the lines to lose as that line was a killer.

What were they thinking shuffling the d pairs and Higgy and Lappy right as the playoffs began.

It seemed like mgmt. made the decision to lose because they blew it.

Way too immature and embarassing of a hockey player for my liking. Wish he wasn't here.

They certainly are. The only negative thing I have to say about them is that they're not both 6'4" and 220lbs. We'd have a couple less holes to fill on the team if that were the case - oh and probably a Stanley Cup by now :bigblush:

Agree that Lapierre is under rated. He's got size (6'2" 207), decent set wheels and pair of hands, still relatively young by pro sports standards (27), a good banger, and defensively responsible.

I believe he needs to be given more responsibilities (i.e., more PK time, more difficult shut down assignments, etc.) and he's shown that he can provide some offense when given the opportunity. But I share those who have concerns about his "antics" on the ice, though I would have to say that he's shown more maturity as a Canuck than as a Duck and Hab (and Rocket...I got a chance to see him play as a 17 year old for the Montreal Rocket...just imagine a tall, skinny, obnoxious kid running around the ice trying to hit and bother everyone and you have Lapierre as a pimply faced teenager playing in the Q...he was a beauty).

I'd love to see a line of Burrows LW -- Kesler C -- Lapierre RW for a sustained stretch. I remember a couple of games in 2011-2012 when they played as a trio, thinking that they looked pretty good. As long as they stuck to playing hockey, I can see this line being a dominating shut-down line that could deliver 60 goals and being a tough line to play against.

Man, oh, man. When he smiles I can imagine opposing teams' fans wanting to punch him through their TVs. I think Jim Hughson said it best.
