Pinizzotto brings everything Weise does, except he can also provide offense.

who cares about past players

hes going to play like 1 minute a night

once again , his age doesnt matter

and who cares if he doesnt hold onto a spot

why is this 4th line 3 shifts a night position this important to you

your acting like hes taking top six minutes or if the canucks give him a shot they lose anything

no one loses , if he does good , the canucks are happy , if he doesnt w/e its a 4th line spot

no ones hyping him up to be anything ,you're over thinking this bud

When he was a ufa. All 29 teams were looking at pizz. He decided to choose the Canucks because he was offered a higher Ahl salary. He is one of the higher paid Ahl-ers in the league.

He's a good 4th liner that is willing to drop the mitts and can skate well.

I don't think his body will let him get in NHL, sorry to say. He looks great in games sometimes but injuries happen so often.

Torres 2.0? I'd be so amped to see him in the lineup.

Hey, also with all due respect 3rd and 4th line positions often go to the guy playing with the most desperation.

Isbister had more talent than Pinner, but never made it cuz he never played with desparation. Guys, like Manny and Torres, did because they learned they were goint to wash out unless they adjusted.

Pinnizotto plays with that desparation. If his body allows it; he'll get a shot!

I would love for him to be called up. Hopefully he gets an opportunity when he becomes healthy.

All due respect to Steve, but he's soon to be 29 years old and has never played an NHL game for a reason.

Agreed. Pinizzotto's 0 points in 0 games is remarkable.

Don't take anything out of context; this ain't over 35's beer league softball. (sorry Kirp somewhere)

Amongst the last 10 guys cut each year; virtually all have enough athletic ability and talent. A little extra athletic ability or talent helps; but what you want is the dog that wants it most!

And then they often only last 3 or 4 years as complacency allows a hungrier dog to surface. But Pinner appears the hungriest dog right now, if you have been watching the Wolves this year. We may not need him for 6 years.

And after a life trying, even a couple years at $700 or $800 grand is a bonus and a 35 plus beer league bragging story.

We'll just have to wait and see. If desperation = NHL roster spot, we'd all be in the NHL.

We need to take a look at this guy in the NHL. He is probably an offensive upgrade over our current batch of 4th liners and is as physical as any of them. Even the most minimal offensive improvement would be welcome right now.

The Canucks were also high on Isbister, Richtie, and Marc Chouinard, Keith Carney and Eric Weinrich. Let me know how many players @ the old age of 29 have made the NHL and actually held onto a roster spot permanently. There's a reason why players like Pinozotto missed the boat

The league has clearly shifted toward the power game especially in the playoffs were our softer forwards of our bottom 6 are exposed.The right balance of hitting gets higher turnovers and slows down opposition attack.and works down low and in the crease gets the dirty garbage goals and stuff ins.I say if Pinzo helps all the better or find some.

Pretty much this. I think he could be a decent fringe NHL player, but injuries just killed his chances.

It seems this is just one guy who the hockey gods have destined to never make the NHL.

It would be nice if he could join the team but this guy gives Salo a good run for the money in the contest for most injury prone player.
