Looks better than a 5th/6th defense man. Its nice to have a right handed shot. Looked good tonight reminds me of Tanev when he first came up. Would be nice to have him in the playoffs.

I hope he plays well so we can ease Bieksa and Tanev back into the playoffs. It'd be more useful to have a healthy Bieksa for the entire playoffs (hoping we go far) over a 70%, mistake prone Bieksa for games 1 and 2.

He's a great skater, plays simple, and isn't shy about throwing the body.

If his nerves don't get the best of him, there's no reason why he can't stay in the lineup in the playoffs.

Good game for the kid. Glad he did well, and hopefully he'll be able to skate over any rough patches.

If he does well for the remainder of the season/playoffs, it will give the team options with regard to the lower cap for next season.

regards,

He was rock solid tonight and threw some big hits early in the game. I wouldn't be surprised to see him stick around past his 5 games this year.

Loved what Corrado showed tonight but he looked like a secondary story on defense to me. Alberts is playing ridiculously good out there.

Gillis sucks at drafting/developing. :bigblush:

He was great tonight, I had a feeling he would have a strong start in the NHL. It became apparent to me throughout the lockout that he was better than Connaution who we thought was close to ready last year.

I could see him stepping in and playing in an important depth role like Tanev in 2011. Although Corrado right now isn't as much of a toothpick as Tanev was then. lol

Hope this wasn't just beginners luck. Threw some nice hits and was great at skating back defensively. He is EXACTLY what Edler needs, and you could see how much Edler improved. The only time Edler looked off was on the powerplay when he got walked, and that was the one time of the game he wasn't paired with Corrado. I want this going into the playoffs:

Hamhuis - Bieksa
Edler - Corrado
Garrison - Alberts

Those are 3 big, physical defensive pairings that can all score goals as well. Obviously Corrado and Alberts will get less special team minutes, so our top-4 of Hamhuis/Bieksa/Edler/Garrison should all be munching up around 20-22 minutes a game.

Saviours are for the desperate and downtrodden.

But who doesn't love what he showed tonight?

And MG pulls another coup - another young right hander with top 4 potential - and at the cost of a 5th round pick...

Canucks drafting and scouting.... sucks.

Yeah,Tanev was brought to the Canucks by Gagner and Corrado is the only Glilis pick in five years of draftingnow playing for the team.

Corrado good.

Gillis drafting record -hahhahhahhahhahahhahhahhahhahhaha.

Years of suspect drafting and trading picks, by this regime and the one that preceded it, has left the Canucks without a bankroll of prospects from which to purchase help at the deadline.

He played extremely well out there. Nice to see a 20 year old come into our lineup and play as good as he did. Congrats to the kid.

If it wasn't his first game he would have quietly done his job, sans that great hit in the first period.
