Hearing about the signing of this guy got me very excited.. I think he's a guy that's going to surprise and make the Canucks on a 3rd or 4th line role.. He's the guy that scored the game winner in game 1 of the San Jose vs Detroit series in 2011..

http://www.theprovin...9244/story.html

It also seems like he's motivated to make the team from the link above..

I feel he can be the guy that comes in during the playoffs and scores some clutch goals and plays surprisingly well..



I think Gillis hit a home run with this signing.

I think he's one of those players caught in the middle of being too good for the AHL but not quite good enough for the NHL.

It's not unthinkable to think that he could break out at 26 and find a place in the NHL. Lots of players have done it.

At this point I don't see him being more than our number 2 or 3 call up after guys like Jensen and Hamill.

That was his only point in the playoffs then, but I'd rather have him than Weise :lol:

He scored 6 points in 11 games for worcester in the playoffs and in his first ever playoff game scored a goal so he could be a good playoff performer.

Obviously a totally different set of skills. Remember Tortorella saying he needs more push back and physical play Ferriero does not bring what Tortorella wants. If he was a top 6 forward ...sure ...but he isn't. The team needs more not less push back from the bottom 6 forwards

Less penalties, and has more points in less games.

Yeah i'm not drinking that koolaid.

More potential in Santorelli. He's a shootout ace to boot. But i'm not expecting much from any of our cap compliance-type pickups.

JoSchro's the guy who has to step it up. At $600k, there's no excuse not to have him in the lineup.

Huge upgrade on Ebbett, and that's the role he'll be filling. Good addition.

I think with Schroeder it's going to be almost a do or die season for him. Hopefully he can live up to that pressure.

It's probably the same for some of these cap pickups as well, especially ones like Ferriero. We'll just have to see what happens in the ice ring. ;)

I dunno about Ferriero but I want to slip Subban some growth hormone so he can become 6ft and turn into the super Duncan Keith defenseman we have always wanted.

Did anyone watch Jensen play last year? That kid needs one more year minimum, possible 2

Very underated player, he was on the Sharks 3rd line for much of the last couple of seasons. I think he scored 7 goals in 33 games one season, good for a 20-ish goal pace actually. He'll definately make the team's 4th line over rookies.

He's got a better chance to contribute than Hamill. I think Ferriero will so well in a support role.

Yep, and one summer can make a huge difference for a prospect.

At this point he has more potential than a 26 year old that can't crack the NHL for more than a third of a season.

Aw man... I just watch that video and all I see is Stuart... I feel so bad for him, he was just trying to block it...

Fluke goal, good luck for Ferriero, bad luck Brad

No. The Canucks aren't even in the same realm as these other teams. They aren't even close to being good enough to make the playoffs. They'll be off by around 10 points.

we'll see, looked him up.... seems like he has potential and just 26. Could turn into a PA Parenteau type of player. Don't get all your hopes high though, like most of the time.

If we get a lot of injuries and if he's lucky....might get a few games here. Willing to bet he spends 95% of his playing time with the Comets though.
