Manny...............the comeback!

68 posts in this topic

Watching Manny in the CDC vid of the players reactions to the shortened season, it struck me that this could be the season for him to make a major comeback.

He looked comfortable on the soccer field in the summer and he looks lean and ready to go in the interview.

Anyone else think he could still be our 2nd line centre? I would love to see him really break out with all guns firing. I still think his diving goal last season was in the top 3 goals scored by the Canucks.

I really think he will comeback.

He's working really hard to try and get back to 10-11 form.

I'm hoping he comes back in full form this season. The guy was so clutch before his bloody eye injury.

This shortened season may be of great advantage to Malhotra. He did look great on the pitch with the Caps. However, no way he's playing second line. If he could play on third in any near capacity to when he first got here I would be eccstatic.

I think he's going to still be on our 4th or 3rd line. 2nd line will be for Schroeder or for someone to step up into. he isn't good enough skill wise to be a 2nd liner. He can do great winning faceoffs for our PK and on our 4th and 3rd line. Keep him there, he's good there :D

We'll find out right away when he heads up the ice and trys to accept a simple outlet pass.

If we want the Cup this, we need to trade Lu to get us a real 2C.

I was thinking about manny today and wondering why none of the reporters have asked about his condition.

I believe too that manny will be great for us this year, I do not believe his vision was to blame but the fact that he was basically unable to do ANY physical work for like 6 months. As a previous user said, he looked good on the soccer field and looked to be in very good shape.

Manny never has put up the offence that the Rangers expected of him when they drafted him. For that reason alone he won't make it as a 2nd line center. 3rd line, sure, if he returns to form. He's an excellent bottom 6 guy but doesn't provide enough at both ends of the ice to be a top 6.

And then what do we do with that 2C when Kesler comes back?

That is beauty of the Canucks depth, centre's 2 through 4 can play any where in that range.

Schroeder may step in and take the 2nd line spot until Kesler gets back but I am pulling for Manny to do it.

Lappy with the checkers on the 3rd line and Higgins or Schroeder on the 4th.

Of course Ebbett is good to go and may claim a spot.

He'll be depended on in defensive zone face-offs with Kesler out.

Good role player.

If he's our 2nd line center then I can't wait to get Drouin, Jones, or Mackinnon.

The only real reason why I think Manny will have a good year for us: contract year.
