Regardless if we get Doan or we Doan't, The Canucks are going to get tossed around again next year, its the best and maybe only way the canucks can be stopped. As an elite team for the last 2-3 years, other teams , study and learn how we play and have found weaknesses. It’s very apparent that the Vancouver Canucks are a team that prefer to beat their opponents on the scoreboard rather than on the ice. Even Daniel Sedin acknowledged there are teams “who think they can get us off our game” by running players.

No more turning the other cheek or complaining to the ref , ITS TIME TO FIGHT BACK. We need the players to be accountable for there actions. We need teams to be scared of playing us, not the other way around. keep the top 6 the way it is. Im talking about the supporting cast. Max ,Higgins and Hansen have played extremely well together and are a great shut down line , but there not scaring anybody away. I think we need to trade for some fighters, not Goons that cant skate but guys that can forecheck ,hit and fight

Wouldn't need Sesito and Rinaldo, one would be more than enough.
If I had to choose I'd say we just try to get Rinaldo.

Rinaldo only


Sestito is only 24 and is on a 2 way contract, i see him spending most of the season on the wolves


ASSETS: Is a hulking winger with the ability to play a strong forechecking game. Has some scoring ability at lower levels. Can intimidate with his size and pugnacity. Isn't afraid to mix it up. thehockeynews.com

John Scott is a GOON
Prust is fighter just like Ryp was

i think Rinaldo is more like Prust and Ryp, they can fight and still know how to skate
