Time to slot in Vandermeer RIGHT NOW!

He would have to play with the Sedins to act as any kind of deterrent..... that's not gonna happen.

And which defenseman would he bump?

Having a goon defenseman in the box for 5 minutes a game doesn't do us any good. It just means that the rest of our D have to play with different partners and play more minutes. Which increases our chance of losing. And the other teams goons will take advantage of this.

If we're gonna get a tough guy, we need to get one that can also play. Vandermeer is not that guy.

I remember Gretzky having Semenko as a linemate from time to time. He couldn't play worth crap but being on the line opened up so much ice for Gretzky and kept opposing teams honest.

For some reason Gillis has refused to budge on this even though the whole league knows the Cancuks are soft.

malhotra was just put on IR TODAY!!! Today.....

lol obviously he's going to bring someone up to slot in....

I don't see how you can start calling the winningest GM and Mastermind behind the best 4 -5 years in Canucks history, a moron..

:picard:

And I don't think we are soft when all cylinders are firing and no one is injured...

Ballard dishes huge hits, Hamhuis dishes big hits, Edler inconsistently has the potential to deliver bombs. Bieksa is smaller but adds a mean streak and can swing with heavyweights. Volpatti hits like a train and is an awesome scrapper, Kassian is great a long the boards, hits lots, and can swing with heavyweights (He will be a heavyweight in a couple years once he fills out more, remember hes only 22).

When he's on his game, Booth is a great power forward, can play a crash and bang game (we havent seen a lot of him due to injuries, I was so happy when we got Booth.) Lapierre also hits A LOT. On top of all these guys we have good sandpaper, hard working guys, like YANNIK HANSEN, ALEX BURROWS, Great underrated players in the league.

I'm sure Vandermeer will get his shot.

The Canucks lack size rather than toughness, but even in that... We have a different culture in the dressing room this season. It shows on the ice.
