Hope no one claims him. He really wants to play for us.

But here comes Schroeder.

I guess I'll be redundant and say how this means Schroeder is coming up.
Hope he doesn't get picked off.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

I don't know. I read that the guy has been lodging in Vancouver for months for a contract. Hopefully he gets some game action. If for nothing else but to prove that he ain't got it any more.

Why didn't they waive Barker? Vandermeer has a higher chance of getting picked up...

BTW - How does the waivers work under the new CBA? If someone snatches him, do the Canucks get first claim for the next eligible waiver player?

Its smarter to send Vandermer down because he is on a two-way contract so the Canucks have to pay him less money if he is playing in the AHL. Also with Alberts you have the same kind of player, I still think we should move Alberts for a late round pick, jsut because of his cap hit compared to Vandermeer and Barker.

Don't think Vandermeer would have done any more harm then Ballard this weekend. At least he's intimidating a bit. Would rather have seen Barker or Volpatti waived, but, that's just me.

Why woudl you waive volpatti, he has been playing really well and earned all of his ice time. Moving Vandermeer is kinda weird though, because he can slot onto the fourth line if need be.

Yes, I went to school with his wife. Heard Jim is a real solid guy and his team mates love him. Was really happy they were gonna settle down here for a bit. Hopefully, he doesn't get plucked and gets his chance here as the season moves on.

The writing is on the wall with Ballard (he'll be gone this summer) so the Canucks want to have a LONG, up close look at Barker's work ethic and off ice activities to see if he could fill that vacancy.

You're right about Vandemeer being more likely to be picked up but whatya do? We know Vandemeer is a character guy. We don't know that about Barker as of yet. We do know that management wants them both and Vandemeer will likely take over Alberts' spot next year.

Kassian.... Taylor Pyatt 3.0

Lies. He's more of a Steve Bernier. Hopefully his talent level goes up so he can become like a Taylor Pyatt.

Yeah 1.225M is quite a cap hit for a depth D.

His Lack of Sterling play has prevented him from Joslin for a position on the Canucks. He should be Mullen his play over the next few weeks or else he and the horse he Rodin on will be Friesen for the rest of the season in Chicago instead of in the Hunt for the Stanley Cup in Cannata.

Who are you kidding? Barker has some former pedigree and with the current contract would be gone in a heartbeat. Puck moving D-man 2 years (injury-plagued) removed from a 40-point season. I liked the Vandemeer signing but he's a fringe NHL'er at this point.

Jim Vandermeer will be picked up, I can't see a team passing him up, I can see a team like the Rangers or the Capitals takinga swype at him,

But back to who comes up it better be Schroeder...if its Desbiens or someone like that I will be super PO

Some one once said if you keep trying the same thing over and over again expecting different results it means your are Insane. Canucks keep trying to win the Cup with a soft team year after year.

They should have kept Vandermeer and put him in the lineup when a tough team comes to town. He doesn't need to play big minutes or to play every game. They could even dress 7 Dmen for those games. Hopefully Vandermeer doesn't get claimed.

This is a ridiculous move. I thought MG had learned after losing to LA and BOS the last 2 years.

LA and Boston didn't win the cup because they were "tougher" than everyone else, but nice try.

Horrified at the fact that Barker moves up the depth chart, but at least we'll get to see Schroeder. Mixed emotions.

Would have been happier seeing Alberts go down. Vandermeer's versatility and grit will be sorely missed if he's picked up, especialy in the playoffs.
Would rather send Ebbet down it's not like anyone else is likely to claim him!

Would have preferred they send Barker from a skill set perspective but it's a dollars and cents business...soooo. Here's hoping we don't lose him!

You are quite attached to a player that the Canucks signed to a 2-way contract less then 2 weeks ago.

Barker refocused only 26 contract is stellar.
I really want Vandermeer to stay because this team is sorely lacking a tough guy , with him in the lineup were solid in grit.
Vandermeer, KAssian,Volpatti,Bieksa ,Wiese etc...better grit but if VAndermeer gets picked up we will need to get someone else

How quick yo forget. Hamhuis, our best Dman tried to lay a hit on Lucic and was out for the SCF. I guess Lucic's size and toughness had nothing to do with Hammer's injury.

Brown ran around and had his way with the Canucks and all of CDC was up in arms. Countless threads on Brown's ugly mug.


Only an ignorant NHL fan would say Canucks aren't soft. Even Vandermeer him self said the word around the league is Canucks can be pushed around and he could help in that department.

Every hockey fan in Canada knows Canucks are soft.
