How are these 2 players any different? Both are fighters who get miniscule minutes and score once in a blue moon. The Hordichuk experiment was a failure and it's obvious Sestito hasn't worked out here hence the reason Flyers waived him.

Name me some dissimilarities because quite honestly I can't name one!

Only thing keeping him here is injuries

When we get healthy he will be sent on waivers....it wouldn't be the worse thing in the world if gets claimed

Sestito isnt harming the team defensively. The 4th line today actually played a lot in the offensive zone. Which is all you can ask.

This is kinda random..? Sestito has been great since the pickup, he hits, fights, aggitates and hasnt looked out of place 5 on 5.

He is an intimidating precense on the forecheck, something we lost when MG let Torres go. In the Wild game Suter almost crap his pants when he saw Sestito came charging.

I like Sestito, I hope MG has long term plans for him, if he can practice the fighting aspect of his game, we've got a legit heavyweight that can skate and play a regular shift in the organization.

The difference is Tom Sestito is 6'5" and 228 pounds versus 6'1" and 212 pounds. He can hit to hurt.

In his two seasons in Vancouver, Hordichuk averaged 5:31 and 6:01. Sestito is averaging 6:30.

Sestito can actually tangle with the heavyweights in the league and doesn't put his head down and throw punches wildly.

He also actually has some offensive upside (based on the fact he scored 42 goals in 2006-07 in the OHL). Hordichuk never had more than six goals in junior.

anyone else laugh at "the Hordichuk experiment"?

as if Hordichuk was brought in to alter the team's philosophy and approach to the game

these are grizzly 4th line plugs playing a handful of minutes a game, ideally to stir a bit of energy in the tomb that is Rogers Arena.

don't put so much thought into it.

The difference is Tom Sestito is 25 and could still be groomed into something more than a complete goon; Hordi was a goon when he got here.

Sestito has been a good 4th liner for the canucks and not a liability on the ice

He actually hits and the other teams feel it when he does. Drops the gloves when he needs to. Even if he doesn't score, he is playing physical and keeping the puck in the other teams zone. What more do expect from a fourth liner?

Yeah I am disappointed that Sestito hasn't turned into a top six power forward. He needs time to adjust but he has been fine and I like his game. Him and Weise literally give this team a one two punch. This team has now become a lot tougher. He's been a good pick up so far.

his sheer size alone intimidates the other team, did you see Clifford and Fraser try and push him in a little scrum and Sestito just looked at them and both skated away.

Yeah Sestito was really good in the O I'm surprised it didn't carry to the NHL.

The one thing that I'm impressed with, is his confidence with the puck on the boards in his own end. He doesn't just fire the puck up the boards blind every time it comes to him. He actually chorales the puck and tries to make a tape to tape pass. He has not disappointed me yet.

hordichuk faught more often. Stood up for his teammates and was feared by opposing teams. Sestito is fun to say. And we can call him tostitos

Thanks to injuries, it's Sestito on our 4th or Jensen/Desbiens/Sweatt/Rodin
-Would hurt Jensen/Rodin's development on the 4th, and neither are suited for that role.
-Desbiens is a poor-man's-Sestito, and that says a lot about him
-Sweatt is a good grinder, but is better served playing top minutes in the AHL

Agree with you NHS, there was no philosophy behind it. After Kesler went down again and Volpatti got claimed on waivers, the Canucks needed another NHL 4th line body. Sestito was on waivers and fit the bill. He wasn't a part of any master plan to get bigger and tougher, but has played fine and will continue to get 4th line minutes while the forward ranks are so thin.

Sestito is Italian and Hordichuk is Polish. Come to think of it I haven't seen them in the same room together... Honestly though any difference in impact either one of them would have on any team's success is so minimal it isn't even worth discussing.

Pretty much. Notice that Sestito has not completed a pass yet.
