After watching Spooner last game, all of a sudden, Dave Gagner popped into my mind. Did the Canucks trade Sam for a version of his old man?

Ryan Spooner shouldn't be on this team. He immediately killed that line.

 

Take a look at the stats, this guy has gotten worse EVERY YEAR since he broke into the NHL full time.

Spooner looked better than I expected tonight. He has good speed and his edge work is good.

Not impressed.

 

1st game he did nothing... no chemistry with Boes or Petey.

 

2nd game was given a couple gold plated chances and did nothing.

 

Invisible in the D-Zone.

It seems to me like it's a confidence issue. The more he's traded, the less confidence he has. Perhaps with time he'll gain some back and play better. This is at least the right team to be able to do that on right now as we have the freedom to experiment like this. :)

 

And if he doesn't work out, it's not like Gagner was an expensive price to pay. lol

I thought he used his speed to forecheck well against defenders and caused some turnovers. Partnered with Bo and Leivo's amazing board strength and puck retrieval, could be a good match short term. 

Don't see much offensive skill from him though.

I noticed Spooner took hits to make plays too.  That's something Gagner never did.

Disagree, he's adjusting. Had some impressive hardworking moments and a breakaway.

Even last night Goldy (sadly) poked at a puck along the wall in our zone, out near the blue-line, and the puck turned over.  Spooner doesn't poke at pucks.  He gets his body involved.
