this says to me that Jimmer and Greenie both think we have a chance to make the playoffs 

and Greenie wants a veteran group and he doesn't want rookies (Michaelis, MacEwan, Juolevi, Lind, Gadjovich, Bailey, Graovac...) impeding his play off chances

 

I think this also says that they will grow their offensive players first, and when they reach their prime, they will start working on defensive players

that should work, huh?

Sure?

Weisbrod went to Harvard.

 

Was there ever any doubt they were gonna claim him?

Might make it more surprising that we did claim Vesey. Weisbrod seems like one of those Crimson alums who loves to tell everyone “I went to Harvard.” Those guys tend not to like having someone else around who can make the same claim.

I wonder if this means they have eyes on a future with 3 top centers.

 

Hoglander   Pettersson  Podkolzin/MacEwen/Virtannen

Pearson  Miller  Boeser

Vesey  Horvat  Podkolzin/MacEwen/Virtannen

On Hastings?

Carolina claimed Forsberg from Edmonton as insurance in case they lost Nedeljkovic who they had to waive to get to their taxi squad.  Once Nedeljkovic cleared they waived Forsberg the next day who was then claimed by Winnipeg (because they had just lost Comrie).

 

I think it would have been worth it to claim Nedeljkovic, even if we carried 3 goalies...

Don't think LE is going to Utica.  As far as I'm aware, it would mean LE would get more real $$$ as it would not be subject to Escrow.  Don't think Aquilini wants to lose more $$ than necessary. 

It’s unbelievable isn’t it? LE has is a cancer extraordinaire

Green tended to lean on his vets on the Comets as well.  He doesn't have the job security as Jim Benning so it's hard to blame him for wanting to protect his job leaning on vets for the Canucks as well.

no he's just not good anymore. He hasn't earned that label, apparently his teammates really likes him.

Or how about the Canucks have 5 injured forwards where they almost had to dress a D as F last game, and quarantine rules don't make make call ups any easier.  That other stuff....

Comes with the craka sauce.

 

Kidding I haven’t lived in Van for 20 years either.

Saw this earlier and I'm happy with it. At least JB's trying to get something going. Hopefully it's the spark we need and Vesey needs, and it turns into something unexpectedly good. Looking to Vesey for timely offense.

If Motte is back...

I'd assign Eriksson to Utica, and keep Michaelis on the taxi squad....for two reasons - one is cap, the other is to encourage LE to retire.

 

 

Just make Eriksson go through the gruesome school bus rides and hotdog lunches with Utica and see if he'll retire???
