Hearing the #Canucks will have interest in Capitals forward Matt Hendricks if he's a u-f-a July 5th


.





News1130 Sports@News1130Sports21m
Hendricks a good penalty killer, face-off guy, lots of grit and great character in dressing room. Great 3rd - 4th line guy.

News1130 Sports@News1130Sports21m
Henrdricks agent Miachel Wulkan tells me that priority #1 is to re-sign in Washington but not surprised lots of teams will have interest.

Someone that can finally replace Manny's loss, seems like a good start, but it alone won't be good enough..

You do realize part of the lack of scoring was because the Sedins and Kesler can't be deployed to play mostly offense without a Manny type player, right?

Signing someone to fill the hole left by Manny's injury will go a long way toward setting things back to how they were on the 2010/11 team.

He can play left wing and center, take faceoffs, block shots, hit and work on the penalty kill. "I think I've established myself more in this league," Hendricks said. "Proved I can play throughout the lineup - special teams, penalty kill, things like that. I'm pretty good at faceoffs. I think I'm just more of an established player at this level." Washington GM George McPhee praised Hendricks for his work, but it's unclear if the team wants to commit to the longer term deal that he is reportedly seeking. Hendricks hopes to be back with the Capitals though and several of his teammates want that to happen as well.

Good replacement for Manny but they need to stop bringing in all the same types of players and all bottom 6 type guys. This team needs some real scoring threats in the top 6. If this type of signing is all we see then the Canucks will get no further. Let's just hope it isn't huge money with a NTC like every other deal GIllis hands out.

good gritty guy, seen some of his fights and hes an OK fighter and will stick up for teammates. Somewhere around 1 mill would be a good pick-up.

What?

Bring in another 4 third line wingers and we're golden. Everyone knows third liner winger is the most important postion in hockey. Thankfully we such a smart GM in MG that's he's gone out and made sure we have the most third line wingers in the league. I'm surprised though that no other GM's have picked up on this brilliance. I mean why would anyone in their right mind pay more for a first line player when you can just stack your team with cheap redundant talent?

The NHL is a fixed old boys club. I've come to acceptance with that and just watch for entertainment. The 2011 & 2012 Canucks are champs in my books. Go Canucks Go!

Looks like Burrows, a one trick pony.

Skate in, fake the wrister to the bottom left. Open leg stance and glide in ala Messier. If goalie bites on the fake shot go right, if open score, if not drag back to the left and score.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Impressive in no regard whatsoever. Basically an Ebbett replacement.

At least the return on our forced trades will be good. Pfft.

For the amount of faceoffs he wins and the lack of bias against him with the refs, I would say he's an upgrade over Lappy.

WE need two top 9 forwards who can take the puck to the net, and arrive there in a bad mood .. the antithesis of Mason Raymond .. Booth could if he was not so damned fragile .. Kesler can but cannot carry the load alone .. it is all about heart and the will to win ..

Lappy only made 1 million.

I will be shocked if Lappy decides to stay at around that price even. He's a solid 4th line player, but

LOL, its funny how you bicker from the side line, I asked to see how you do being the General Manger, you said you are self employed, which NTC do you have an issue with?

Players Nikolaj Ehlers have been compared too by the fan base of the Vancouver Canucks.

 

1 Pavel Bure

2 Markus Naslund

3 Nathan Mackkinon

4 Jonathan Drouin.

5 Jonathan Tavares

combine results.  Ehlers 5'11 162 lbs of solid rock.

You're getting almost as annoying with this as you are with your Luongo posts.

Back to the topic at hand:

For success to happen, even the depth players have to contribute something to the team. Hendricks would do that, no doubt, but if he goes to FA there will be plenty of interest. I doubt we sign him if he gets anywhere close to that $2.5M mark like Prust did last year.

Hendricks-B. Gordon-Lapierre

Is a great line.... Gritty, kill penalties, all decent on faceoffs and muckers.... Maybe sign a Chipchura or Smithson.

Soap in sock treatment( a la Full Metal Jacket) on Lappy to shut him up.

Not that you asked me but I have a problem with ALL NTCs. They are nothing but a handcuff. With a salary cap like the NHL has, you need to be able to have roster flexibility to trade anyone at any time to anywhere. However, it is the fault of GMs for giving them out...especially a former agent who view them as a good thing. Generally speaking, they are bad for business. They need to institute some kind of 10 & 5 rule, a NTC cap or diminishing clauses so that the NTC isn't so powerful.

56.8% on the draw this year , left handed draw (good counterpoint to Lapierre), hits often and hard - would be a good addition (as would a guy like Gordon)...

don't see the value in depth players / too busy "star gazing".
