Max is a player who we aquired several years back. He was dominant in are cup run and seems to always turn it up in the playoffs.He had a very solid season as a versatile forward last year as well. I have been a huge Maxim Lapierre fan throughout my life.I have always payed close attention to every shift he has played in during every game. In my opinion for a portion of this season Maxim Lapierre has looked very demoralized on the ice. This is not a thread to crticize Max at all, because I respect him for buying in to are team system and trying to get better. I have always noticed on contract year for lapierre that he has always struggled during the regular season but has always turned it up in the playoffs. he averages 12 points per season on every contract year. To the bright side of things he is only making one mill and has as many points as moen,tootoo and a couple of other solid 3rd and 4th liners. But this season i have missed the Max Lapierre who played like a 2.5 million dollar player who always gave us a spark on the ice when we needed one wheather it was by hitting or fighting he always knew how to get us going. That is what raises questions in my mind considering the fact that he is only 27 years of age. I am just wondering if the coaches are doing a good job of motivating him, if volpatti leaving bothered him,if his weight gained during the offseason has affected him or if he is playing with an injury as he had a sore groin throughout all of february. I am just worried because i respect Lappy and dont want his season to go to waist, what do u think the Canucks need to do to get Lapierre going again and make sure he will be 100% ready for the playoffs?

I was hoping Zenon Kenopka would be signed for the fourth line center role last summer.

I'd like to see someone new in that spot.

i would send him to chicago and bring schroeder back. LaPierre has been useless this year.

I would say adios.

Playoff performer. Not skilled or consistent enough for regular season success. Not sure if we'll ever get more.

I think the players he plays with make him either good or bad....I don't why when something finally starts to click we have to break it up, for example:

Hansen Lappy and Torres used to = Solid

Salo finally had a solid season = See ya!

Ballard Tanev = Solid, but nope let's break that up too...

If it ain't broke why fix it?, fix the things that are actually the problem.

At the same time you can't possibly expect lines and pairs to be constant throughout a full season, can you? Not to mention not ever having player movement. Yeesh.

Yeah, I would love to have him back. He is better off playing in the bottom 6 than on the 2nd line. He isn't really a scorer, so I think it would be better if MG acquired a 3rd line centerman at the trade.

He's been a great cheap 4th liner for 1 million dollars. Rather have Lapierre than some goon Konopka. He always leads the team in hits and is great in the playoffs.

Do people need to bash everyone of our players except Tanev? He's playing with Sestito and Weise. Sestito lost some shifts on the 4th because he sucks

He can be effective,but taking needless selfish penalties isnt doing much for his cause.

Does he still play for us?

Seriously this guy is a wannabe, a fourth liner at best and preferably not here.

Is it me or has anyone else noticed he's a lot slower than previous years? Anyone want to elaborate on that? Was 8th in hits last season playing 4th line minutes mostly. I'd resign him.

Id rather let him walk. We have enough players with bad reps and with the NHL going ahead with this Diver list thing we have enough scrutiny shining on this team.

I don't think this season will be a waste. He has paid his dues. If he is willing to sign for cheap I think we will see him on our 4th line again next year.

I'm sure its the added weight slowing him down, apparently he bulked up 15-20 pounds.

But what do you expect out of a 4th liner? The only reason people are unhappy with him is because he was given a waaaayyy bigger role then the type of player he is and are now expecting him to play a 2/3rd line quality game.

At his most effective he is a 4th line center, and OCCASIONAL fill in for the 3rd if there are injuries.
