I'm not sure if the Canucks need to make anymore signings this off season. They don't need Arnott because they are strong enough at center. If they decide to trade Lou, they may need a new backup goalie. Thats about it.

That's debatable. Hopefully Schroeder or Gaunce can surprise people in training camp.

I'm glad we agree then.



When they put him on the list of illegitimate legitimate sources, I'll think about it, but until then you can be interested in his 'information' all you want anywhere but here.


"They" CDC has Eklund listed as legitimate. just saying.

Lowball offer. I'm not saying Arnott is the be all end all type but this guys is worth more than a measly 1 million.
He has size, skill, leadership qualities. Easily worth 2+ mill per
Insult offer from Canucks. Another reason why we haven't landed any worthwhile free agents yes I'm talking specifically Doan

The guy only had 34 pts last year, and he could decline further this upcoming season. Not really a low ball offer...maybe not exactly market value.

Yes, he does have size and some left in the tank, but his leadership qualities are way overrated. The guy caused quite a commotion when he clashed heads with the HC and leaders in the Blues' dressing room, and was a regular healthy scratch down the stretch. His play also declined in the 2nd half of the season.

Arnott makes a good replacement for Salo on the PP because of his shot. Unfortunately for people hoping to see Garrison on the PP with the twins, it'll probably not work out because the twins like to set up a right side overload, which utilizes a RH one time shot.

what does a low ball offer to arnott have to do with doan? are you sure this isn't just another reason to bitch about doan not signing? if you havent noticed he hasn't signed anywhere and it has been stated repeatedly he wants to stay in phx. i can't believe how much distrust people have built up for our front office because of rumors CDC perpetuates.

Read this:

As per Lee Hamilton of XX1090 Sports Radio in San Diego, it is believed that the Canucks have offered Doan $30,000,000 over 4 years.

Kassian.... Taylor Pyatt 3.0

Lies. He's more of a Steve Bernier. Hopefully his talent level goes up so he can become like a Taylor Pyatt.

I honestly think you can't go wrong adding vets like Arnott or Doan; they both bring great leadership qualities and both have size which is exactly what we're lacking. I know we're trying to get younger, but Arnott could probably be signed on a 1-year deal. Arnott at a cheap price would make sense, no doubt. With Kesler out til December, Arnott can fill in on the 2nd line C role and when Kes returns, he slides down onto the third line.

IF we could add both Arnott & Doan, I really like our chances this year.

Sedin - Sedin - Burrows
Booth - Kesler - Doan
Higgins - Arnott - Hansen
Malhotra - Lapierre - Kassian
// Weise

Hamhuis - Bieksa
Edler - Garrison
Ballard - Tanev

Schneider
Lack/UFA Goalie

It also means we could carry extra centers which is a good thing, in crucial face-offs we could throw an extra out on the ice in case one gets waived out on the draw.


Sedin - Sedin - Doan
Clowe - Kesler - Burrows
Raymond - Higgins- Hansen
Volpatti - Malhotra - Lapierre

/ Kassian /Weise

Hamhuis - Bieksa
Edler - Garrison
Sbisa - Tanev............................Trade Booth, Ballard + for Clowe and Sbisa.

Having both Doan and Arnott on the Canucks would absolutely great what the doctor ordered in terms of secondary scoring. I am in favor of acquiring a second 1C with the ongoing Luongo/ Schneider scenario but if there is one player that I believe would be better than Kesler as a 3C, it is Arnott.

Otherwise I hope the Canucks acquire a second 1C to play behind the Sedins and return Kesler to his rightful place; 3C.

For those putting Doan in your proposed line ups are crazy. The guy is all but signed with Coyotes right now. Hopes for him are gone. I'm just hoping Gillis gets a top six forward for Luongo.

But Arnott would also be a nice addition if we don't get Matthias or Sean Bergenheim in the Lu deal.

When did Doan re-sign with the Coyotes? Oh right, he didn't. So don't say he is 'all but signed.'

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

Matthias is only 24, is huge and has a lot of upside. The risk is he was brought up too fast. He already has three years in the NHL and it seems to have stomped his growth as a hockey player. If the Canucks acquire him, lets just hope otherwise, that the potential far outweights his recent resume's course going forward.

Berhenheim does not fit the mold of bigger, faster, younger.

Mathias is like Pyatt. Big but below average at everything but not terrible in any area. Pyatt believe it or not actually hits a lot more too.

Lets take Pyatt's second season with the Canucks. He wasn't playing with the twins but scored 16 goals, was 4th on the team in hits, 2nd amongst forwards in blocked shots and he killed penalties, +9. He was 26 years old that season.

Mathias scored 10 last season, was a -2, killed no penalties, was 14th on the team in hits, 2nd in blocked shots.

Considering how unpopular Pyatt was I foresee similar fate for Mathias. Neither player is bad, useless etc., it is just big men tend to be very unpopular in Vancouver because they are expected to be Todd Bertuzzi.
