There was serious interest from the entire league for volpatti and they must have known he was gonna get claimed

Why didn't they trade him and get something for him?

There better be e better reason than Pinnizotto needing to come of IR to lose Volpatti.

He was the only pure grit player the team had, played his role well and wanted to be a Canuck.

I wish him the best and can't help but thin this is a mistake..

Something has to happen. We can't just keep losing forwards as out GPG% is going down and we're losing games... First Manny, the Kesler and Volpatti also. Sooner or later we're going to have to add someone, might as well be now and not when it's too late or when we have a mountain to climb to get to the postseason etc...

“Since the beginning of recorded history, which is defined by the invention of writing by the Sumerians around 6,000 years ago, historians have cataloged over 3700 supernatural beings, of which 2870 can be considered deities.

So next time someone tells me they believe in God, I’ll say “Oh which one? Zeus? Hades? Jupiter? Mars? Odin? Thor? Krishna? Vishnu? Ra?…” If they say “Just God. I only believe in the one God,”

I’ll point out that they are nearly as atheistic as me.I don’t believe in 2,870 gods, and they don’t believe in 2,869.”

Oh snap, didn't see that happening. Caps are fairly weak up front in that department though.

Good for Patticake.

Even if I like Kassian, like CoHo (not a fanboy and didn't whine about him going), would have rather moved Luongo already and am patient & feel like I trust in GMMG - I am getting worried if he missed a beat somewhere. We're still leading our division and had a good run there for a while. But even GMMG can't say we don't need help on offense & D. What is going on?

Good luck Patti!

I think he was a bit of a fan favourite to a lot of CDC because

a. BC boy
b. Played bigger than he was
c. Isn't Weise.

Oh well, hopefully he gets ice time over there.

Very stupid move by the Canucks - lost a heart and soul player. He was never the problem on the 4th line. How about dumping Wiese - useless plug who has zero offensive effort......his one goal was a fortunate bounce to an OPEN net? Otherwise hands of stone.

Volpatti skated hard, hit hard, played hard...frustrating to see this team let guys like that go.

Damn, was hoping to see the Cup when he brought it to Revelstoke ;) I hope there was a point to all of this, Volpatti has been solid and consistent this year. Best of luck to him.

Calm down, you make it look like this is worse than the Cam Neely Trade.

Actually if our 4th line sucks maybe Kassian and Schroder will get more icetime over these plug

Weise isn't a decent 3rd liner and isn't near as effective a fighter, checker or hitter as Patti. I would have rather waived Weise we have enough guys who are way more versatile than him. We need players like Patti who play their role well and know what their role is. Not guys that are band aid 3rd liners masquerading as ineffective 4th liners.

sigh... Great guy from what I understand on and off the ice. Still don't understand this one MG? Kesler goes on IR same day and u waive volpatti to clear a spot for pinizotto? Did MG not know Kesler was injured when he put him on waivers!? Lack of communication there for sure.
