Maybe not a claim, but this guy's faceoffs are going to be on the same level of Granlund. Not too bad, but not a "dominant" faceoff man. We just don't have any centers to hold the fort now.

 

He's struggling with 0 goals and 2 assists in 16 games, but he's a UFA after next year, so basically it's a very short term (prorated) contract to shore up the position. The only problem is figuring out how to manage the cap.

 

Perhaps a trade to get rid of a player like Roussell, and he might be able to help the NYI.

The Canucks need help with all their injuries, but they don't need help so much that they should pick up Komarov.

 

He'll need to quarantine for 2-weeks anyway so it's probably better for the Canucks to call-up someone from Utica if they need to rather than a waiver pickup like this.

 

His contact also just doesn't work for the Canucks.

Even if he was expiring I don’t think it is a move we should make.

We need to preserve any Cap space for any deadline moved which may require us to take money back.

Benning may try anything to stay in the race for a playoff spot, but with all of their staring Centres now injured, in addition to Pearson, I think they're done for the year. Demko has been great and all, but the injuries are too much.  

 

Miller

Gaudette

Hawryluk/Boyd

Graovac

 

not good enough IMO

We'd rather have perspiring players than expiring ones anyway

All that matters right now is, CAN HE PLAY CENTER???

He is a center. Decent faceoff numbers, but nothing eye popping.

Don't need eye popping, right now, I think it's more important that he can fog up a mirror lol
