Thank the LORD. Finally a centreman who can win draws. Our faceoff % is horrid right now

Tough to lose Connauton though :(

Let's hope Roy pans out as expected in Van. We can't afford another underperformer

Well with the addition of Roy we got even smaller...Clowe is a big dude that can punish the opp..we need players like him..


We can get other big tough dudes who can't score much cheaper than Clowe.

Where does it say that?? You're pulling this out of you a$$.

They said $6mil???


Again kypreos said he heard from dallas he wanted closer to 6m from dallas, and the brutal media here in canucks land is now saying he wants 6m even next season from us. It has turned into complete speculation and is now being reported as fact.

Jagr to Boston. No love for the Sedins.

Its ridiculous how people keep trying to make beastly lines with the Sedins. Burrows is the ONLY player that has shown the ability to improve/complement the play of the Sedins. Everyone else just mooches off them for empty net tap-ins. Jagr is not a rover to get in on the forecheck for them. Glad Gillis is GM

I hope the Canucks push hard for Clowe. If we got Clowe, there's no reason why both him and Roy couldn't be re-signed next season.

Out: Luongo - 5.3
Ballard - 4.2
Booth - 4.25
Raymond - 2.5

In: Clowe - 4.5
Roy - 4.5

Supposedly speculation that is taken as fact. But you're right, I overreacted.

I like Roy, wish he was bigger but..

The deal will be a good one if Roy decides to resign. If not a bit of an overpayment, would prefer a 4th for a rental.

No. No. No. No.

The twins are going nowhere. They'll likely retire as second line players. And they'll retire Canucks.

Exactly so we are making moves....

I do not mind clowe, but dont understand cdc obsession for clowe and dislike for roy. I would not complain if we got clowe, but he has been very slow, sharks fans say he is playing with an injury, and as we all know has not scored.

Jesus people. Do you realize in a couple years the Canucks are going to like Calgary?! It happens to EVERY TEAM!!! We will have some losing years and we will eventually get back to the top of the West. I'd rather we trade prospects and go all in then sit, do nothing, be mediocre and blame everyone for everything. Sit down, shut up and enjoy it while we are still above the top 6 in the West...

Seems like a good trade since we need a centre, although looking at his bio he's 5'9" 185lbs, quite small for a centre but hopefully he isnt like Raymond when hes carrying the puck into the zone :P

(and for people saying he wants 6mill/yr somebody might want to tell him goals arent worth 750,000 each)

Yep, just like how people on these boards thought Edler would command 7 million, and that's there was absolutely NO CHANCE that he would sign for less than 6 million.

Come on guys, just because Derek Roy and his agent personally say they want upwards of 5 million doesn't mean he's going to get it.... Of course you're asking price is high to start, wouldn't you do the same if you were him?

For those considering the likelihood of Roy re-signing with Vancouver in the off-season, his brother lives in Vancouver and has for quite sometime. I spent a little time with the two of them in Italy during the 2011 playoffs and they seemed pretty close. I wouldn't be surprised to see him sign a deal around the 4 million mark, its the term he's looking for (think 5+ years)


It would be great if we can resign him for a few years.

I read on CBC that Roy was traded FROM Buffalo to the starts because of the addition of Cody Hodgson. So, is this essentially:

To Van: Roy, Kassian
To Buffalo/Stars: Hodgson, Sulzer, KC, and a 2nd?

No way GMMG makes this trade unless he thought he could sign the guy.


This.

Gillis must see him as a long-term option - similar to Higgins and Lapierre, assuming like them, he ends up being a true fit over the stretch run and playoffs.

We've had a huge deficit in playmaking (beyond the Sedin line of course) ever since Kesler converted himself to a power forward.

I think this is a good deal. Good work MG. Connauton was overrated and Roy will bring some depth and win some draws

Rather not have lost the 2nd but will judge this trade further down the road.

Hopefully we can make another trade and grab a couple more picks.

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.

2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.

Cory Schneider is the next Patrick Roy.

After the Boston series CDC says we're too small. Now that we add Kassian, Booth, Sestito we're too big and not enough skill. Now we add Roy and he's too small.

GTFO.

Roy is a PROVEN offensive threat, get over your Gillis hate folks.


after the Regher and Blowmeester trades, the impatient Canucks were saying

"Mike Gillis better do something fast, or else we screwed"

Keep in mind these are the same idiots unwilling to see Mike Gillis trade away a 1st rounder

After the Roy trade they claim we payed too much?? WTH. these silly haters never quit! It's like they want free stuff. It doesn't work that way! GTFO is right!

Doug MacLean is one of the biggest jerks in hockey. There's a reason why he hasn't been hired by anyone since he was punted from Columbus.

Going to say this. The Roy deal smells like one which the Canucks could utilize to put Kes at RW. Roy is small as crap but he is one hell of a set up man and for the sake of preserving longevity for Kes it makes sense to move him to RW as he would be less likely to be injured

Why would he be less likely to get injured playing RW over C ? this might be one of the dumbest things i have heard
