Does anyone know that status of Jim Vandermeer? Is he a black ace? Are the Canucks bringing him in for the playoffs?

Having Vandermeer onboard seems like a sound decision considering how much of a deterrent he can be, and considering how a few core players, like Bieksa, proposed the idea of signing him.

I have looked high and low and have heard nothing.

I'm actually surprised both Corrado and Joslin got games before him.

Would be wise to bring him up for playoffs to add toughness

I am glad Corrado was called up though. He will be a top 4 defenseman in a couple of years.

As far as Joslin, I agree.

I really don't get why we signed him if we were going to bury him in the minors all year.

Yes he agreed on getting demoted if necessary...but he didn't even get a shot with the big club.

Adding Lain, Vandermeer, and Archibald gives us much more size and grit for the postseason.

Postseason isn't exactly the best time to give these guys try outs. If injuries happen, well that's another story.

While the majority of the Black Aces will be insurance in case of injury, I would hope that Vandermeer would be added into the lineup at the expense of Barker.

Having a pugilist like him in the lineup will give the team more pushback and make everyone play that much harder and tougher.

My guess is that his play is not something that AV would put in the line-up. Besides his toughness his questionable skill could be on the serious decline.

"What players need is the right kind of strength and power. That includes learning to understand that leverage and positioning can be just as important as raw strength when it comes to winning battles in the game. It's more about timing and athleticism --and avoiding injury--than it is about how much you can bench press. I don't know how many times I've seen a guy with the physique of a defensive end line up a guy half his size, only to bounce off when he connects. Sure, there is room in the game for big guys who can throw their weight around. But for the most part, players are smart enough to see them coming--and strong enough to protect the puck when they arrive. There are trainers out there who know how to devlop hockey-specific strength--though a trainer can help only if a player follows the program. All too often, I've seen players sign up with the best trainer, but not show up for their workouts and never to reap the benefits."

He's not ( most likey ) going to play unless injuries happen at the back end. We seem to be getting healthy , but we all know how injuries love to happen to the canucks...

He'll be recalled with the rest of them. The reason Joslin was recalled first was because Joslin was on loan to Worcester, and they got eliminated before the Wolves - management didn't want to interfere with the Wolves' playoff run. Corrado was recalled because we needed a right-hander.

Who I suspect we'll see join the team: Schroeder, Vandermeer, Jensen, Sweatt, and Gordon. Outside chance we'll see Sauve/Polasek, if only because our d-core has taken some hits.

Id like to see kellan lain come up as well as the usual suspects.

He's been tweeting about heading back to his grad ceremony and meeting up with his former players. That could be just for this weekend and then he could come over, but not sure if he'll be included.

Postseason isn't exactly the best time to give these guys try outs. If injuries happen, well that's another story.

Pretty much, we shouldn't be expecting any of them to play apart from as injury cover. Maybe we see Schroeder rotate in, but the rest will be there to practice and get the playoff experience so long as everyone else is healthy.

Vandermeer doesn't need to come up just for the experience, since he's been there before, but we'll have to see if they feel he can be useful depth and want to bring him up just for that.

As mentioned above, the extras will be coming up Monday, but I haven't heard anything about who comes up.

We are only looking at this situation though one side of the mirror. Clearly, the coaches have seen that Vandermeer isn't a strong enough option to play him. The fans may think differently, but we can't exactly see how he plays in the minors unless you watch our farm team's games on whatever channel it's on.

TLDR; Vandermeer is only thought of to be good by people who hear the slight positives he can bring, the coaches and everyone else in the organization see how he plays on a daily basis.

That is the only reason a handpicked group would be with the team J-Schro is certainly a lock for both center or RH wing. I suspect each position will be represented as an option.

This is because you have watched him in Chicago........yes?

Vandermeer has been very ordinary in Chicago too, as was Tanev.............so maybe we should totally ignore Chicago form.

Man, the more posts I read on this thread the more I think it belongs on the "Biggest fears going into the Playoffs" thread.

As in, I fear if we have to play Archibald/Joslin/etc, we're f-cked.
