No more midgets!
We need to get bigger not trade good players for powder puffs.

All you guys wetting your pants.........and they have hardly dried out from Booth and Kassian yet.


He might be a midget but he plays with more grit than most players on the team.

In reality I would be happy if we got Roy..a pipe dream to get Jagr.

If he's for sure done talking with the Stars, his value just decreased by a lot.

Won't take Raymond + a 2nd or some other crazy offer like some are suggesting.

I could see Roy going to the Ducks, they are very interested and have prospects Dallas would be interested in.

Vancouver doesn't need any more midgets. I'm sorry but Schroeder is just too small. Gillis already know this. Schroeder just isn't built for the playoffs. Also the little guys on the Canucks seem to be dying off. No more little guys.

I would rather take Jagr. Roy is "done" talking with the Stars for a reason, he wants too much money.

Jagr is almost playing at a point per game pace, adding him to the lineup gives us extra offence and the stanley cup experience we need. Plus MG could make a really nice pitch to re-sign him here based on how well we take care of our players.

I would much rather instead of another pass-first type player they get a guy who actually is willing to shoot the ???? puck from anywhere and everywhere.

Problem is resigning him is going to be a pain in the ass. One of my best friends is a season ticket holder in Dallas and from all reports out there according to him Roy wants 6 mill+

He is exactly the type of player the Canucks need right now
- He is a beast in the playoffs right now.
- Is apparently the hardest player to play against as voted by the other coaches
- Played two seasons at a point/game
- Is a captain
- Has size and plays a strong game
- Was voted the third best play maker by coaches (I think that was the 2011-2012 season)
- Scores a lot of his goals from the dirty areas and sets up pretty goals

I'm really looking forward to seeing the kid play, seems real mature as a team mate and will get a ton of ice time from AV cause of his development (being that he says he worked out his defensive game before his offensive). And since he can play wing or center he is looking like he would be a great fit for playing alongside Kesler with Kassian.

Can't we just April Fools him rather than actually trade for Roy?

If this team lets go of Sang he will burn this team next year.

It's not 7.5 per year, Kesler's at 5 million and Malhotra's at 2.5 million

People are talking about giving up raymond and a pick for a guy that has half as many goals as raymond ... but makes twice as much and is a 5 foot 9 center that hasn't been very good since 2009 :picard:... great plan. Surely our offence will explode.


Roy has 18 points... same as Raymond, Fact is we need a centre, he's a good 2nd/3rd line center so fits on our team, sure he has 4 goals but has 14 assists and I would rather have a playmakerish type on our team rather than another shoot every 2 seconds type guy like Kesler / Raymond

marginal prospect and mid range pick, or let someone else overpay.

He'll be a beast when he can skate better. Maybe MayRay could give him some tips.

I highly doubt Gillis would pick this guy up simply because he would upset the room. In a wrong way. I do thing the so called room needs a shake up though.
Gillis will stay away from the ego of Roy.

I'd rather take a chance on... Oh wait, i'm not allowed to say that... Um, somebody else, rather than Derek Roy.

Diver. Soft. Whiner. Non-threatening defensive capabilities. Injury-prone. Won't be a difference-maker. Etc. And too expensive for us down the road. So why bother?

Roy has 4 more points than Raymond in 6 less games.
With the exception of last year, he has been a 60+ point pace player each season since 06/07.

Gillis is gun shy.I can understand not wanting to a screw up, but no matter how many great trades you make you gonna get a stinker or two. Like Gretzky said, you don't score on 100% of the shots you don't take.Gillis needs to shoot more if he is gonna be successfull. Waiting around to see what happens, means that you are gonna miss out.
