Thanks for the post. Interesting bit on the media questions about certain players and the effect on the locker room.

Ego on him, eh? He should've just taken the contract given, it was clear that the twins helped rejuvenate his career and they were the ones deserving of an extension. Their production only kept increasing even after he left too...but yeah, you made them that way Anson. He was lowballed, but it was the year after the lock-out.

Got to admit, I liked him when he was here. Dem dreads...

Also, lol. Listen to the full commentary here:

Poor Ballard. Never became an Olympian.

Just funny how he played with the twins and got 33 goals and 22 assists. If that wasn't a sign he should've stayed I don't know eat else to say.

Sedin's didn't exactly "make" Anson Carter as he put up decent numbers with the Oilers before joining the Canucks. However, they definitely helped rejuvenate his career and land a contract for another team.

Not sure why topic was moved, listen to the interview--mostly Canucks related.

Got to take Carter with a grain of salt, at least he admits he was being prideful when he chose to move on.

Well to address both sides, he said the Canucks offered him the same amount as before, something around 1 million, and that is a slap in the face for 33 goals and 22 assists.

So shame on the Canucks.

Proves how stupid Canucks management was back then. You finally got a player with great chemistry with the Sedins, and then you totally lowballed him (he deserved at least 2.5 million but was offered like 1.5 IIRC). Then you traded away draft picks for Taylor Pyatt and gave him a 1.5 million contract. While he was relatively effective with the twins, the Sedins never got a reliable linemate again until Alex Burrows (and Samuelsson) a few years later.

FYI, the 4th rounder used for Pyatt eventually turned into Keith Aulie.

Yeah, at the time I was scratching my head wondering why they were lowballing him. Meh.

Canucks should have kept him...Exactly the type of player we needed with the Sedins against the Bruins. Carter big body that could could finish. Burrows has finish, not the size and strength of Carter.
