He has looked really smooth so far. Not out of place at all.

 

 The Brisebois-Tanev pairing has been our best pairing so far and IMO Brisebois has been one of our best defenseman so far.

Ive really like Brisebois's game so far. Would not be surprised to see Fantenberg waived so Brisebois could have a spot

We're not waiving vets so that prospects can sit in the press box.

 

Does no one understand the roles of spare D? Anyone?

Mine is more a prediction that Brisebois can get accustomed to NHL life and practices until Tanev or someone else inevitably gets injured

Let the kid play heavy minutes until he's needed. He will likely be up and down a bit all year, he will get time with the big club don't worry.

JB just picked up Fantenberg. He is not going to waive him.

Breezy has looked like he's ready. He still goes down but it's nice to see there are legitimate NHL defenders to call up when injuries hit.

Or he could actually be PLAYING in Utica and be one of the first call ups...

D depth is looking real good

 

Juolevi - Biega

Brisebois - Rafferty

Teves - Chatfield

Sautner

Tryamkin* (possibly for the playoffs?)

 

Not a bad list of callups, when one of the Canucks regular D goes down. If they pair Tanev with Hughes as a second tandem, Tanev might actually stay relatively healthy this year (not having to block every shot against every teams' top line). With Hughes, my guess is the Canucks will retain puck possession. Don't need to block shots when you have the puck :)

The game against the Oilers was the best game I've seen Brisebois play. He looked relaxed and in control

I think either Brisbois or Sautner might surprise and stick for awhile. Maybe Sautner as he cannot be waived and JB might think it worth giving him a longer look. Either way both will be high on the recall list.

Doubt it.  

 

But I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up as our 7th d man by seasons end.  We have a slew of guys that are battling for a spot on our bottom pairings and bottom forward lines.  

 

Sautner, Biega, Fattenburg, Breezer, Teves, Rafferty and OJ.... 

 

Competition and depth.  Essential for this team to turn the corner.

I've like Brisebois's game as well. physicality is up, but he's not looking rushed on the puck either. He's got a good shot, and plays like a slightly more skilled Ashton Sautner imo. Wouldn't be surprised to see him play 5-10 games this year.

Why has Brise never been a sexier topic?   Having a great year playing with Rafferty as Tanev of the pair.  Smooth skating cool defenceman with a great first pass.  Not sure why this guy who is not getting hemmed in his own zone is not seen as one of the future solutions to the issues we are having at times this season on the big club.

Because prospects or players without apparent flaws are not fun to whinge about

Points, it's all about the points. +/- when the points don't fit their argument.

 

The reality is defensive players never get the limelight despite their importance.

He's always been on my list of players who would graduate to the big club.  He's going to be a solid NHL'er, imo.
