another squandered asset by the Canucks. Shirokov should have stuck with the big club a couple of times this season, especially when MayRay had an epic 2 month drought.... Isn't that why we have prospects?

I don't know enough about who's running the show to put the blame on AV or MG... but at some level, someone is making stupid decisions with this team. (Why the frack didn't Schneider play game 6 in Boston, why wasn't Ballard used at all during the season, so when we needed him he wasnt a part of the team)

We're trying to model the Detroit system where you let a guy develop in the minors. The only part we miss is that you slowly work the guy in and give him a chance. Our GM seems to have forgotten that part. More young talent leaving our organization that was never given a chance. sigh.

Unfortunately Sergei does not have what it takes to crack our roster and he is not going to sit in the minors for another season, and uproot to Chicago now. He will go back to Russia and make good money to play with his countrymen now that he has failed to make NHL. The Russian factor comes into play for sure, it's not our management squandering him away.

Another reason why you dont see too many Russians get drafted anymore. The option of staying in the KHL for more money (tax free) is more attractive. Wish we wouldve dealt Shirokov for something at least... he never fully got a chance here.
