Gillis is heavily invested in Schroeder since he chose to keep him over Hodgson.


If we don't even dump one veteran, I'll stop posting on CDC until October 7th. It's that disappointing. - Tom Sestito, June 27th.

I actually think he is right on Andersson, this is a guy who has really impressed me with the Wolves, he's big skates well and is steady, won't bring a ton of offense but has the other tools to be a good player, also loved the confidence that JS is going to be here, which I expect to be announced tommorow with Vandy being placed on waivers.

I agree with alot of the things he says, I think he hit the hammer on the head with everything, from the Sundin signing, to the prospects and the whole bit, I'm happy he is our GM.

Thanks for the post.

I like Andersson but am disappointed he hasn't developed as much offensively. He was even so so in the points department in Sweden last year.

I've been starting to envision one of Sauve or Polasek developing into an NHL role and having Andersson playing alongside on the bottom pairing. It'd be nice to have a homegrown 3rd pairing that can get the job done for a reasonable price.


If this team lets go of Sang he will burn this team next year.

I just hoope that Gillis recognizes when it is time to deal vets like the Twins, Burrows and Bieksa instead of waiting until they walk for nothing. Ohlund, Jovo, Naslund, Salo etc. Nonis traded Bertuzzi and the Canucks have been benefiting ever since. It is a value judgment as well as how the team is time lined for a CUP push. Dealing vets usually yields draft pics or prospects which I still think the Canucks are way short of.

I seriously hope Schroeder comes up tomorrow just so I can get a good chuckle from the last part of your post.

Read his post again as you misunderstood it..

"......leaving players in the minors longer does a couple of things for you. One, it lets them develop. And we have quality coaching there. And two, it helps with your salary cap"

For the fire Arniel/Jordan Schroeder Fan Club -take notes.
