The Mathieu Schneider thing didn't go over too well

Which is too bad, because it didn't have to be. if you remember, the year after Schneider's departure, the Canucks were decimated by injury on the back end. Tanev, Sauve, Sweatt, Parent and Oberg all saw time with the Canucks. Some of that time could have been Schneider's had he not whined his way out of Vancity.
Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

I know Mason Raymond is definitely not the worst canuck ever, but nobody has ever had me constantly pulling my hair out and yelling at the TV during games as bad as him. His falling, bad decision making, lack of production besides one year is utterly frustrating. I think what makes me more upset is I used to have such high hopes for him and that I see so much potential in him that is wasted by awful plays time and again. Just doesnt seem to have the IQ.

Patrick Coulombe was pretty awful. -6 in 7 games, got sent down to the Moose and had 9 points -9 in 44 games before getting delegated to the ECHL where he became the MA Bergeron of that league (second rate offensive dman with no size or defensive ability). His best pro offensive output was 12 goals, 34 points in the ECHL. Not very good for a pure offensive defenseman who weighs 165lbs.

Kidd had 4 goals, 11 points in 20 games, decent numbers for a dman. He must have been awful to not get a longer look despite picking up points.

I've only been a Canuck fan since 2000, so not well versed on most of the obscure players before then. However, as a disappointing player and not so much the 'worst' player, I'd have to go with Jan Bulis. He had decent seasons with Montreal, and it just seemed like he would fit well.

He was memorable for the 'piggy back' moment, that was all. I still remember watching that and immediately going, "What the hell is he thinking? What a goof!"

Jan Bulis jokes will always be funny. Always. I can't remember a Canuck who so constantly and consistently infuriated me. Easily the worst Canuck ever.


Mason Raymond says hello :)

At this point, it isn't Mason Raymond that bothers me, it's the Canucks for re-signing him. He had one breakout season, and was extended because of that. Seemed like a good idea at the time. The fact that Gillis re-signed him again after he played out his existing contract was the mistake.Bulis was just plain awful the entire season he was with the Canucks. Far worse than even Mason Raymond's worse season.Another disappointment for me was Pavol Demitra. Even when he was first signed, that seemed like it was more because Gillis used to be his agent than it being a good fit for the team. The only time Demitra showed passion while in Vancouver was during the Olympics. The moment he put on the Canucks jersey again, he sucked.

Taylor Pyatt


Good lord, how could I forget Taylor Pyatt. I might have to go with him over Bulis.JB was only a one season debacle. Taylor Pyatt was given chance after chance and was always disappointing.
