No surprises here, really.

 

I hope LE is headed for Utica

 

I hope that Bailey, Baertschi, Brisbois, Graovac and Sautner are all part of the taxi squad.

 

If the Canucks are thinking of sending Loui to the AHL instead of keeping him on the taxi squad, then I wonder if they might try to work out something with the Dallas organization since, if I'm not mistaken, Loui's family still lives in Dallas?

My phone almost broke laughing and adding wat? To almost every post on here.   Does this mean our team is finally good enough to finally move on from this bad signing!   I think so.

 

lol.  Haven't been on the board for a few days, haha brilliant "wat"  emoji.   Could've had it on here years ago.  Some here are more enthusiastic about it than others I see. :lol:

Good luck to Eriksson. Only a matter of time this was going to happen. All the best to Brisebois, Sautner, Baer, Graovac and Bailey as they head to the AHL. They are pretty decent call up options if they pass through waivers

Cap Friendly site starting to show teams "Taxi Squads" , nothing for the Canucks yet. Not sure if this info is out there yet but thought I should share in case it isn't.

Why make it more pleasant for him?  I doubt he will actually be assigned to the AHL, but if he is make it feel as unpleasant as possible so he is more likely to hang up the skates.

If we loaned him to another AHL team, it would be one in Canada so he could be recalled without quarantine.  Winnipeg is known to be nice in the winter!  :)

Uhhh Tyler Johnson?? Wow!

 

Also, we should grab up Sbisa, Perry, Schenn, Johnson, and Lindholm on the cheap!

 

Get er done JB! :bigblush:

 

Edit: Nobody's snapped up Loui E off the waiver wire yet?

Lots of names of older expensive guys being squeezed out.

One off the wall name that I think is really interesting is Jujhar Khaira. 

A local boy who is cheap, tough as nails, and plays all three positions on the 4th line.  He actually seems like a pretty ideal fit as a depth guy who stays on the 23 man roster.  Probably an upgrade on guys like Graovac, Hawryluk, Michaelis, etc.  Would be a huge fan favourite and sell a lot of merch in Surrey.

Agree, but at 1.2 million we'd struggle to fit him in, cheap as that is.  Not out of the question, though.

Because there is value in being viewed as a decent organization.

Possibly, I'm hoping whatever they do, it results in him finally just retiring.
