Volpatti CLAIMED by Caps

Recommended Posts

With a healthy lineup, and hopefully a couple moves at the deadline, Volpatti wouldn't have even had a spot on the roster.

If we want toughness for the regular season, that's one thing. If we want toughness for the playoffs we're gonna have to do a whole lot better than Volpatti. We need toughness that can play more than 5 minutes.

Tom Sestito please. 13 pounds heavier, 4 inches taller, fights, stands up for his teammates, can pot the odd goal better than Weise can. This guy will probably be picked up by Edmonton or something but if he's still available Canucks should grab him

It's funny how some people don't get it.

Wiese fights too, you don't get any points for winning a fight. It doesn't really matter that Volpatti fought a little better it's that Wiese has way more upside and can play a more versatile role. Essentially he does every single thing Volpatti does and more.

You also realize that Wiese can play the PK, and he plays 2 minutes more per game, His one goal is also a gamer winner. Add to that he can move up the line-up if need be and the choice is obvious. This is really only Dale's second year in NHL. Volpatti has been on the wrong side of the door looking in for years.

You make a statement and I am curious if you have supporting info for it.

Other reason is I most likely dont agree with your idea of blunders and think it would be good to debate.

Bottom line, Volpatti new his role, never complained. Much better option that pee wee weise . If there were several claims in for him then the management simply blew it by not getting even a draft pick back in a trade. We have zero grit and have now become even easier to play against.

Dropping the gloves is great, but dropping the gloves and losing a fight when the team is looking for energy just drains the energy from the bench even more.

Oh look! It's 3-1 for the other team and Weise is gonna drop the gloves!!! YEAH!! Oh wait, he just got the <bleep> pounded out of him. So we can't win on the scoreboard, or through a fight... yay... pack 'er in boys.

I'm with you on this one. If the other teams can do this to the Canucks on a weekly basis, maybe... just MAYBE, GMMG and AV will notice what's going on.

Steve Pinizzotto does everything Val crapy did plus has skill, now Weise has an other skilled player to play with. People on this board are so embarrassing they over react to a player who brough very little to the team especailly with a player like Pinizzotto being the reason he was put on waivers. Have no grit give your head a shake; Kassian, Beiksa, Hansen, Weise and now Pinizzotto(ten times better hockey player than Volpatti).

Sedins-burrows

Raymond-Schroeder-booth

Higgins-lapierre-Hansen

Weise-ebbett-kassian

Our team is still to small to win a cup leafs no what they're doing with mclaren , Orr , brown , fraser definately toughest team in the league and we have weise and kassian ! Both average fighters
