Yeah needs to be a lil more gritty. Although he uses his reach to his advantage.

DeKeyser is doubtful, he knows he has a better shot at cracking the lineup in TB and Det. Apparently the Wings are his fav team too.

Sustr and Laganierre would be perfect additions to the Canucks and have a fair shot of making the team next season. Hopefully the farm moves to Abbotsford so we can watch these guys.

Closest NHL comparable is probably Tyler Myers. Most people will immediately think Chara, but Sustr apparently doesn't play with much of an edge. He uses his positioning and hockey sense rather than his body.

Hopefully that can change once he packs on some more pounds. He seems a little light fr 6'8" right now.

We have to be getting close to our 50 contract limit. We only have, what, 3 sliding contracts?

I think this puts us at 51 contracts - 3 sliding = 48, not leaving us much wiggle room until the offseason.

One thing to remember about Sustr is that he's only about 215 lbs. Let him put on 15 more before evaluating his physical game, usually something underdeveloped in NCAA players compared to say WHL.

not to nitpick a player i know virtually nothing about, but that goal was far more lucky than it was beauty.

If I'm a UFA I look at the Canucks prospect pool and the age of the team and realize that there's going to be some opportunities here in the next couple years.

Instead of going after tall guys we should go after guys who actually have some skill.

Neither was Chara when he first broke into the NHL with the Islanders...he didn't start playing physical until 3-4 seasons into his NHL career.

The only big, talented guys that I can recall stepping into the NHL and being a dominant physical force immediately are Scott Stevens, Chris Pronger and to some degree Luc Phaneuf. As we all know, love them of hate them, Stevens and Pronger were very special players.

If we can't get DeKesyer (The best available) I would like to get Sustr and/or Taker.

Lagainere wouldn't be bad either. But I want the others a tad more.

STOP COPYING EVERYTHING I AM GONNA SAY BEFORE I SAY IT!!!

DeKesyer would be #1 for me. Sustr would be an interesting piece, but we will see.
