The plan?

TWO POINTS:

(i)

Seems all other tems are making moves to improve. What about the Nucks? Hope they just dont think coz of 2 Presidents trophies, no fixes are needed. We ALWAYS need to improve: (1) to keep pace with other teams, (2) to acknowledge our guys get older every year. So what's being done???

(ii)

Now, not necessarily a solution, but when I read this about Semin, I thought Canucks would be a potential fit:

What is the right fit for Semin in the NHL?

It has to be a team that needs offense, but one that can surround Semin with veteran players capable of holding others accountable. A strong-willed coach/coaching staff willing to forget about Semin's reputation and give him a chance to build a new one also should be a priority. An organization with a history of success to prove to Semin that he has to adapt to it, not the other way around, would be beneficial, as well.

Thoughts???

Garrisson is not a 'big' name... or is he? He's a Salo replacement.

And when was the last time we had a good russian on our team?

Jason Garisson might have something to say about this. I believe that we have done well so far this off-season. All that's left is the wait on the Doan signing, and the likely trade of Roberto Luongo. I believe the pieces coming back in the Luongo trade, with or without the signing of a player such as Doan, will be enough to have made some changes that will bring us one more step towards Lord Stanley's Cup.

Garrison is a big upgrade on Salo.

Semin is not a fit here for the following reasons:

1. He's soft.

2. He's a sniper, which won't work with Booth and Kesler having 3 guys hogging the puck.

3. He's looking for a big payday.

There is a reason why a talent like Semin is still on the market. Nobody wants him

Garrison is an improvement over Salo.

Our holes should be filled through the Luongo trade.

Outside of making a go for Doan (though unlikely we get him), there really isn't a whole lot more to do.

Why do you think we need a "big name player"?!

We have quiet a few on our team already, and theres a thing called a salary cap that only lets us get a reasonable number of big names...

Not really any UFAs out there that are worth signing, other than Doan.... and we don't want to ruin the good team we already have by trading a bunch of players just for this so called "big name" player we apparently need.

So I guess Nashville improved by signing a big name in Weber... or did they? You know, considering they already had him.

I guess Philly's better off now too with all those players they went after, and Detroit has a bunch of veterans coming back for another year and not leaving big holes in their lineup. Ah, no need to go through any other teams cause they surely improved way more than the Canucks.

Don't be fooled, MG has plans, however it all depends if we get Doan. If we don't we'll need to acquire a top 6 player, if we do, we need to clear salary. Start panicking come September if we've done nothing

just seems too quiet...

sign a UFA, and trade someone if needed... do something.

change is good.

Butterbean's response sounds reasonable.
