Wolves get a 3 on 2 rush but do nothing with it, not even a shot on goal. Colour guy is beside himself.

What the colour guy doesn't realize is that there's little to no skill in this lineup. What does he expect? There's just a couple skilled vets (Sterling, Haydar, Gordon) and a couple 1st round draft picks (Schroeder, Jensen). Too many plugs.

To the shootout we go. Pathetic display on that last PP with all that room. This might be the most un-clutch group in the AHL. Apparently they also had a 5 on 3 at the beginning of the game that they completely wasted away with very little in the way of meaningful chances.

The Canucks are already changing affiliates. So it's not like it matters if they damage the relationship anymore.

Well at least the Wolves will cuff St.Louis and the development of their prospects. Could Atlanta's sh*tty franchise be attributed to their Chicago affiliate?

I don't know what to say to that. For pretty much every other AHL organization it's the other way around. There are usually only a handful or players that are property of the organization, while the rest are the property of the parent team.

Ridiculous.

*Keep in mind Canucks property includes guys like Desbiens, Vandemeer, Gordon etc.

Frackin' unreal. 18 roster players and, on a good day, Canucks org get 55% of their property into a game.

Should be around 75% in my opinion. 9 forwards and 4 defenseman, plus the starting goalie would be ideal to have.

You gotta wonder how much the past two years have affected some prospects already... playing half a season or less with limited minutes isn't going to cut it. All you need to do is compare the makeup of the team Chicago had last year vs this year. I mean, this was the d-core last season:

Connauton-Baumgartner

Matheson-Sauve

Polasek-Erixon/Tanev/Parent/Hunt

All were Canucks property except for Matheson, and Hunt who only played 14 games. This season, they decide to make Hunt a regular, add Groulx, Regner, and Blain - leaving one open spot for a Canuck prospect. (Which a lot of the time is Vandermeer, not who you'd consider a prospect.) I mean, we only have 3 defensive prospects (Polasek, Andersson, Sauve) in the AHL currently, is it so much to ask for them to play regularly?

Good points, good sir. I forgot how it was last season, and if you're accurate then it begs the question as to why these career AHLers keep getting spots ahead of Canucks prospects, when our prospects were good enough to get them to the playoffs last year. I think it falls on Arniel's head. I mean it begs the question as to why guys like Sterling and Haydar play for the Wolves without NHL deals, when they could sooner play in Sweden or Russia and get far more than the average AHL contract. Clearly these guys aren't good enough elsewhere, so the Wolves are just happy to have the scraps.

I was also choked when Price was released, he's one of the few RHDs we have, and could be utilized on our farm. Also the blatant mistreatment of Sauve, when he's had 2 AHL seasons under his belt, he's now relegated to half a season in the ECHL... horrible treatment of Canucks prospects.

All I know is the Canucks franchise now 'owns' the Peoria affiliate, so we'll have more say as to what goes on. As per vets... let's hit both the max and min by only acquiring 6 skaters. Let Lack and Cannata have the crease.
