Didn't see a thread specifically about this. Elliott Friedman of HNIC on CBC said that the Canucks are looking into trading back for Raffi.


PLEASE do this. It makes sense. Gillis wanted one more one year contract to see how he'd hold up. This is that chance. Big part of 2011 run.

If we can get him for cheap sure. 4th is the most I would go.

Nothing of real good value though.

I wouldn't mind this if we don't give up too much. We could use another 4th liner. I wouldn't give up more than a 3rd though.

MG will look like a clown for letting him go for nothing, but the pros outweigh the cons. We need to replace Booth's body right now and I'm sick of watching AHLers play on a team that's supposed to be contending for the Cup. We had 5 AHL forwards in our last game, Torres would be above all of them on the depth chart.

Yeah we can use more time on the PK, it's not like we need wins or so.

No thanks.

Torres > Weise, Sestito, Pinner

Therefore, even with a healthy line-up Torres is an upgrade.

Upgrading is how you win.

Therefore, trading for Torres would help the Canucks win.

Plus, everyone knows him and he has past chemistry with Lapierre & Hansen.

Yes Gillis, realize when you make a mistake and be wise enough to fix it rather than being vain and not trading for him..

Plus, it was an extra 1.75 million at the very least, since the deal breaker was the term and not the salary.

There were rumours that Higgins wouldn't re-sign if they re-signed Torres. I have no idea if that is true or not, but I remember reading that on hfboards awhile back.

Ya! Last time he only had 7 points in 23 playoff games as a bottom-6 grinder and the Canucks made it to game 7 of the SCF.

That really stunk.

Except some legal but near career ending hits that look so damn bad the refs see no choice but to penalize him? I'll take a Torres any day. He puts fear in top players.

He's "refined" his game. He isn't the same player. And even that player had discipline issues and could be a negative.

Gillis should have signed him 2 yrs ago when he walked as a UFA. How would it look if he gives up assets/picks to acquire him now? Not good I tell ya.

But I do really like ol' Raffi. He's very effective in little TOI. Plus, we need another red-head. After Sulzer left, Gillis never met the quota last summer.

Edit: I remember reading on the HF Boards that Higgy and Torres had a beef. Something about Higgy refusing to resign that summer if they signed Torres. Anyone remember reading that?
