not to mention he hits like a butterfly


So you clearly don't watch games then. He hits fine just not as frequent as Volpatti occasionally does.

Not happy by this move at all.. our team is as tough as a 12 year old girl midget team now.. Seriously.. I am not impressed whatsoever... This Manny situation, the lack resolution in net.. now losing one of the only guys with a set on our team


Unless something big is happening, I don't see this team going far..


The sky is falling

I can't say that I'm overly upset about losing a 4th line, dime-a-dozen, fringe NHLer. That said, Volpatti was a Canuck and I cheered for him when he played. Good luck with the 'Caps!

Now, I wish they would recall Vandermeer instead of Ebbett. Jimmy could play D until KB3 comes back and then he could play wing on the 4th line.

So many of you are saying he's a dime-a-dozen player. Find me one that you can acquire for FREE, because if we need to give up something to replace Volpatti, it shows clear asset mismanagement. I think THAT is the reason people on here are upset, not the fact that we lost a 4th liner.

I don't know support the home team? You really are clueless.


Yeah you're right, Volpatti brought nothing worthwhile to the line up. But it's fine, we can replace him with a similar player in Andrew Ebbett.

Yes, they do. I'm sure Ebbett and/or Sweatt play the same kinda game as Volpatti does.

First of all, I would like to wish Volpatti all the best in Washington. Mabey he can teach Ovechkin a thing or two. ::D

I am wondering why we didn't trade him? We all knew he would get claimed. He plays bigger than he is, he was the only player on this team that can fight, and he even scored a goal. Who do we have now Weise? The guy has a lot of heart but I would not want him to pick up all the fights that need to be taken. Anyways, who is getting called up or is a trade in the works?

Quick question, in the new CBA does his salary get knocked off our books?

Big mistake, He's the kind of player we need for the playoffs hits, fights if need be, didn't the Canucks management notice the type of teams that have won the cup lately?
Maybe there's someting going on behind the scene . I hope so this teams as it is will get bounced first round again.

You're clearly the clueless one here. Get a grip door knob.


I posted quote elsewhere from TSN commenting on Volpatti and his willingness to take on Murray. Sure he lost but he instigated and was willing to stand up and be counted when he felt someone crossed the line - even someone 30 lbs heavier than him. The analyst said players around the league respected him for that and took notice.

That is why it is a shame to see him go. We have no-one on this team that has earned that kind fo respect and it has always been lacking. A player (like Rypien) who will sacrifice themselves for the team. THat is more of what this team needs than a 4th liner who can score. IF our highly-touted top 9 can't score enough, we're sunk.

I agree with most of you. It is frustrating to watch them let a role player go. We just got softer and weaker.

Did I say Ebbet was the best replacement? Think before you post...

Again, it's not that he's irreplaceable, but if it costs us anything other than "FREE", the asset mismanagement is what is bothering most people here.

Tough times for Canucks over this past week. First the Detroit game, then the Phoenix game, Kesler's injury and now this...hopefully things turn around on Saturday.

Like I said before, what teams are willing to pick up off waivers and what they're willing to give up something to get are two completely different things. Even if we'd try to deal him to get what we need there's no guarantee we wouldn't have had to give up something else. Realistically, what do you think we were going to get for a 4th liner on a 1-year 2-way contract set to be a UFA next season?

And, by putting him on waivers we had the chance of just getting to send him down because some people didn't think anyone would pick him up. We gambled. We lost. Luckily, it was just the nickel slot so let's move on.

The frequency thing is mistaken also. Weise has 40 hits in 19 games, Volpatti 42 in 16.

Not a ton of difference in frequency there, especially considering Weise spent some of that time in the top 9 where his role was not simply "ground and pound"

He might yet. Ebbett will be recalled for Kesler, Volpatti still needs to be replaced.

Lineup without Ebbett and Vandermeeron defence

Raymond Schroeder Booth
Higgins Lapeirre Hansen
Weise ????????? Kassian

Volpatti is too small to play the role he is best suited to, and lacks the skill to play anywhere but the 4th line .. he will be lucky to ever play more than half a season due to wear and tear on his body .. Weise has better potential and has actually learned to fight well enough to protect himself .. love Volpatti but his days are numbered ..

Now that he is in the East he will have to fight every game pretty well .. doubt he lasts past 10 games without getting concussed .. to bad .. great guy .. great life story ..
