Schneider could be playing in his last game tonight for this European club. He has given notice to the GM. Same with Duchene who is his teammate.

Spezza has already returned to NA as he believes there will be a season.

Interesting that they would all do this given previously there was no movement during other negotiating periods. Are they really close this time around? We'll see..approaching this movement of players and rumblings with extreme optimism

The key difference is that Sopel can fill in for Seabrook and Campbell just fine. Bieksa, he is garbage so in that sense he is like the worst defenseman in the league.


When Cody (Hodgson) gets older, he might be better than Datsyuk.


Let's not push this guy (Kassian). He's still immature, and if he fails on the 2nd line it's because he isn't ready. Some guys really need years to develop, it's how well and how fast players adapt to the game. In my opinion, I'd rather have Horvat getting 2nd line minutes. He will start off on the 3rd line next season but I see him making the transition, being a great compliment to whoever plays his wings.

At this point, I don't see Kassian fitting in to any role other than a 3rd. If players like Kassian start getting 2nd line minutes then we just stay inconsistent as a team.

It looks like they're close with all the back and forth meetings they've been having lately

Edler, Markstrom, Hansen, 2nd round pick 2014 to Islanders for Ryan Strome, 5th overall pick 2014

This is fairly even as well.

I'd say Cory got word there was some progress made and wants to be around whenever final things are being decided.. He was getting tons of ice time, and his play wasn't bad enough to get kicked off the team

I wonder if they bothered to say 'see ya' on the way out. It says a lot about how desperate the Euro leagues are to get players and how good things are for players in NA when they cannot wait to get back.

Spezza did say he would return if they couldn't strike a deal.

Few possibilities:

1) He thinks a deal is close and wants to be back to prepare for the season.
2) He thinks a deal is not close and figures there's no point staying in Europe if the season will be cancelled anyways. Rather than playing Europe so he can stay in game shape, he just wants to take some time off/train for next year.
3) Both of the above (he thinks whether they get a deal done or not, it would be better just to come home and be prepared for either possibility).
4) He's just bored/tired of playing in Europe

I don't buy it. I think there is cause for great concern because Schneider gave up four goals.
I'm guessing the real story is that they are cutting him, and that he'll never be the same again.
The Canucks should unload this guy as soon as the CBA is dealt. He can't handle the Swiss league.
Bust is imminent.
Stay tuned for further threads from CDC doomsdayers.

Probably due to him not wanting to pay any taxes while over there, a lot of players have already returned home due to paying a high price in taxes.

Doesn't hurt to come home just in case the season is salvaged, get some good rest in before training camp. Worst case scenario is that the season's lost so these guys just fly straight back.

On the other hand, Schneider has been playing brutally in Europe for whatever reason and is playing on a terrible team. Get him out of that situation ASAP because it can only hurt his development.

And by brutal you mean a .927 sv% on a second to last place team?

I'm sorry I still don't believe there will be a season and if there is I may boycott it out of protest of missing half of the season.

Your pessimism is depressing. I am sure that a month in the AHL will tune Schneids right up! :)

Seems like a bunch of mid-20 aged nerds that are still sitting in the dark with their "classic rock" and whatnot.
Don't get me wrong I enjoy the odd Bon Jovi, ACDC, or Kansas, but I'm not a music prude.
Get with it people, music tastes do change. Hip hop's not dead, it's up north with me.
Classic forum response to hip hop! lol
