In Topic: Ryan Parent

19 June 2012 - 09:04 AM

Parent did get screwed a year or so ago because of the clearing waiver issues, otherwise he may have been called up.
He does have great pedigree. He seems to be a solid AHLer. I had high hopes for him too. Had size, experience, total package.

Unfortunately he got lost in the depth schuffle we have. We are fairly deep on the blue line. He really got buried last year.
Yes, Cannoton Sauve and Tanev appear to have more promise (partly because we hear about them more)

Do not write off Parent yet. We may not need him. He may turn out to be decent #5 D man somewhere in the NHL eventually. We may be doing him a favour by letting him go somewhere else who needs/wants him. Or throw him in package deal, but he is not worth much....(trade value). Good luck Ryan.

We are all just emotionally attached to this team, probably way too much. If we care so much to post here on CDC, it just shows that we really care about the success of this team. There are probably 3 to 10 times as many Canucks fans out there that feel the same way ( or maybe not as bad) that just do not come and post on the CDC.

I get ticked off too when they lose, but to put it into some perspective (it is just a game). the sun does come up tomorrow.

game 1: could have went either way, they get the late third period bounce.
game 2: 2 shorties against, we screw ourselves, bad game, Kings were better/more deserving.
game 3: could have went either way, hansen hits post, we just needed one, Brown gets fortuitous rebound bounce, game over.

It has been very close. Bottom line, Canuck players are not getting it done, need a couple goals.
Kings are playing well. We have not played that bad (first two games not that great), just need a bounce....
