does the canucks management group disrespect their players?
exhibit 1) manny malhotra,
Malhotra wouldn't say he asked for a trade when Gillis shut him down but he also told me he wanted to keep playing so read between the lines
if ur not gonna let him play and he still wants to play then trade him. i just find kinda weird how manny in all likelihood asked to be traded and they would rather him just practice and take up a roster spot.
exhibit 2) keith ballard,
when ballards career was floundering in previous years theywouldnt try to save him by finding him a new home....i know i know, who would take his 4.2m cap hit but there had to be a deal out there that made sense
exhibit 3) schneider and luongo,
they signed schneids to a 3yr/12m deal and declared him the starter and full time duties...a few months later luongo is still here and schneids patience is running razor thin (u only haft to watch a few seconds of his interviews to feel his frustrations, i feel for him) and when management is asked about it they just shrug their shoulders and say "we will deal luongo when we get the deal we feel he is worth, if we indeed choose to trade him". i am sure it is wearing on luongo but he isnt letting us see it as much as cory is and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that
goalies need flow, rythym and a schedule to get into a groove and how are you gonna do that when u play twice a week? trade luo and you will see the real schneids come through
maybe im just making something outta nothing but i just wanted to see what everyone thought
p.s the most patient man in hockey a.k.a cory schneider will say something to the media one of these days and its gonna send another shock wave through the organization...i guarantee it
