No point in rushing him out of desperation. That's about the worst thing a team can do.
People also forget about how much this team gets offense out of it's D. Almost all of our D are capable of scoring. The offense is there.


Initially thought this was your Schroeder confession,but,alas,no.
Let's look at how the Canucks d men that were here last year actually performed in the goal scoring category.
Tanev-0 goals
Alberts -2 goals
Ballard -1 goal
Bieksa - 8 goals
Edler-11 goals
Out of the 234 goals the Canucks scored all of last year the d men that are still here from last year scored 22 goals.
Ehrhoff potted 14 goals/36 assists two years ago and led all Canucks d men in PP goals,reg. goals,assists and points.
Sami potted 9 goals/16 assists last year and led all Canucks d men in PP goals.

Haha slaughter house killing of cows in the worst.....at least deer get a fighting chance to run.

No reason to panic...MG has back up plans...all will work out.


Not to mention, sheltered city folk really have no idea how over populated deers are in rural areas. They ruin crops, big time farmers pest, thats why the hunting of them is regulated..

Most modern men believe chicken,turkeys and beef comes from Safeway.

I worked in the meat industry for some eight years so I can attest to the civility of having animals killed with precision.

Here in Indonesia they throw their cats on the streets as kittens to die.There are no shelters and in this town of 30,000 people there is not one pet food store.

Chickens are brought home from the market and slaughtered.

You can buy monkeys in the market,which the wealthy eat the brains.Imagine ripping off a fried monkey's arm for dinner? Hmmmm.

Imagine something to eat? A dog or a cat,a monkey or a whatever.They are slaughtering them here.

I have seen locals dropping young chickens off their motorbikes and dragging them as they die.

Pigs are slaughtered on this end of Bali.One can hear the cries of the pigs as they are slaughtered as a common occurance.

I invite all CDC members that think a precision kill shot for food is barbaric to come and spend a week in tropical paradise.

I`m not sure OP what you mean about him rubbing everyone the wrong way with his character..... I have seen absolutely nothing wrong with it. It seems like he has fit in well with the guys, not that we can really tell of course. I think he is a great guy, and while this injury is obviously a setback it will be good to slot in some of our younger players! Now maybe Kassian has a legitimate chance to fight for a 2nd line role

Having lived on the Gulf Islands for parts of twenty years+ I can say that this is true.However,if people did not create subdivisions out of nature the animals would take care of one another,as they always have since time began.

You mean playoff style games?

If we're on the right side of those scores, I could care less.


I mean grindy, defensive games. Looks like our goaltending will be make or break for us for at least the first half.

This is a stupid comment. Just grow up and deal with it. If a reporter asks him a question like how he deal with his unjury blah blah blah, then why wouldn`t he talk about how he dealt with it? For someone like him, obviously his faith strengthened him and kept him motivated or whatever. And good for him. He is the one being asked, its not even like he is forcing anything on anyone. I find it funny how people don`t like hearing about God, its about how it relates to him! No one is asking us the questions, when they do then you can say what you want.


I don't hear the agnostics or atheists of the NHL answering questions with "god' in them when being interviewed, Booth should do the same and keep his beliefs to himself.
Better yet, maybe a player who is an atheist one day should just say in an interview he got this far in the game because he wasn't hauled off to church by his parents every Sunday morning and had more time to practice.

He was here for a partial season (albeit the whole season but the first month). New team, new conference, new time zone, new climate. This is not an easy transition for everyone. He was looking better every game and then got injured.

This was going to be a new season, fresh start. Then the lockout happened. After that then the short camp came and he got injured. These things happen. He skated 4-5 times a week during the lockout. He is a work out fiend. He is not Dustin Bfugylien.

I hope he returns soon and healthy. We need him whether or not people like him. I just hope that once he is healthy he can become the ~50-60pts player we want him to be. Otherwise, yes his $4mil contract is too much. Unfortunately, we may have to wait yet another year to truly find out thanks to Bettman and Fehr.

Christians reference God in everything they do because to them God is the source/power behind everything they do. Atheism and Agnostics do not have any entity with which gives them the power or source of something to do something. Booth happens to be a Christian, good for him. Kesler seems to not be, good for him. They talk in a different manner yet still get along just fine. Why do we judge someone if they get along just fine with the people who actually know anything about them?

Booth has proven to be a bust for Gillis. Shtuff happens though.

My only hope is that he's traded.


You don't write off players as busts after one season. That's how Cam Neely happened.

Except Schroeder is 22 and has played in the AHL for 2 and a half seasons. This is hardly rushing him...

You realize defenseman can create offense with assists, not just goals right? :rolleyes: You know, shooting the puck from the point, and having a forward tip it in or get a rebound? Or rushing the puck up the ice? Nice argument though. :lol:

Our defense has been one of the highest scoring defenses in the league for the last couple seasons. Nice try. And leaving out Garrison and Hamhuis isn't that surprising. That would hurt your argument. So instead you list our 3 worst offensive defensemen first....

Typical Nuck Nit, trying to start an argument about how the Canucks suck, without any solid facts to back it up. Thanks for coming out though.

That's not a fair judgment is it? And again, you are forgetting Hamhuis.

If you are going to say last year then you have to include Salo, if you are saying what we have now you have to include Garrison, you can't take the best from both worlds and add it into your post to favor your idea.

Gillis shoots for 200 Points from our Defense every year. Last year we got 180, Garrison had more points than Salo, Vandermeer had the same amount of points as Sulzer and Gragnani, Tanev will get a full year, Barker is better offensively than Rome. I think we will be just fine.

If he's was actually training and staying in shape during the lockout rather than hunting he may not have hurt himself during physicals.

No doubt, the ignorance is unbelievable.

Also mountain goat hunting IS A WORKOUT!

I bet 99% of the people unhappy with him are not vegetarians either. Its so stupid to involve someones personal life into hockey..

The fan outrage of him hunting makes me so angry. Canucks fans are the worst in the world, shame on all of you hypocrites, kick rocks!

Considering hunting and religion are both fully legal, I could care less what he's doing with his spare time. If you don't like his twitter account, don't follow it. Twitter is a way to express yourself, that's what he's doing. Although I think his religious stuff is misguided, he seems like a good guy I admire him for being genuine. He doesn't seem to be forcing his views or his hunting pictures on anyone. It seems like sometimes some fans judge a players on ice abilities by things like community service or interviews or whatever. If his hunting interfered with his training, that would be a problem, but according to AV he's in good shape and may have even overtrained.

Was listening to Tony G on this and he sounds a little bitter....questioned what kind of training he's been doing and basically hinted at irresponsibility in acquiring an injury at this stage in the game. I'm not quite sure it can be prevented...injuries happen to even the fittest and it's likely a fluke thing. Just unfortunate timing, but I'm sure it wasn't anything of Booth's doing.

I am on the fence. I follow Booth on twitter and obviously see his escapades. But I also know that he is known as the guy in the locker room who may workout TOO much. My thought is he possibly continued to work out, but maybe didn't spend enough time on the ice and doing stretches, mainly remaining in the weight room?

Well; I'm not sure Booth himself has not panned out. Admittedly no screaming positive results jumping out at you. But, aside from tweaking his knee in a dirty hit this groin pull is his first avoidable setback.

The real problem with trading for Booth was it was an incomplete trade. We traded for a left winger (when we had a mitfull of them) because he was big, fast and athletic and in theory that would have synergies with Kesler. It should have been. But the problem was we also robbed the line of its right winger and its best passer and stabilizer by giving up Samuelsson in the deal. We needed (still do possibly) to recover a right wing who complimented the two of them. Or have Burrows slide to the line if we picked that RW up, say Doan, for the top line. It IMO was not reasonable to expect really good results without a secondary move.

In the meantime, we have Danny, Higgins, Raymond and could recall Jensen. Lets not panic and go get the guy we actually need; another top 6 RW so the line can move forward with Booth's replacement and with Raymond or whomever till he's back!

Stay the program! <_<

The Luongo trade has to happen now. We really need another forward (ie. Bozak)


I'd rather see MG let the chips fall where they may this season than rush a trade for scrubs to plug a hole. What's the wors that can happen? They miss the playoffs and get something the desperately need.........a high first round draft pick. In that case, maybe they get a second 1st rounder in a Lu deal and package them for a veryhigh pick, maybe a 1st or 2nd overall.

Everytime she talks about Booth she has to make a remark about how he's christian and how she doesn't like it, pretty sad really.

Maybe we should get some more players like Kane who punch taxi drivers.

Hunting is just the worst!!!!!

SEL playoffs start in the middle of March. The most likely scenario is having Jensen finish the season there and come over here to play the last month or so, and then playoffs.

I think by that point he should be able to step in and perform. He's already performing in a top league on a horrible team. It's not uncommon for a rookie to come in at the end of the season and play well. We've seen it on other teams in the past.
