I guess Rathbone is a week away?  I assume this does not affect his expansion exemption.

 

Will be good to see him in NHL action.  Looks like we could see Lind and Rathbone next week which will be neat.  Both are likely important pieces for the near future right now.  Will be nice to see Bowey as well.

This is a pretty big day for the Canucks.  Adding Rathbone and Lind for the stretch run here could be huge for saving our season (which I haven't written off quite yet), but also offers a pretty good glimpse into our future.

Rathbone is the one defender in our system that could dethrone Hughes as our #1 defensemen, imo.

Skill, edge, speed, and full 200 foot game.

To say I am excited to see him play is an understatement.

You assume correctly. He has less than 3 years pro experience so will be exempt no matter how many games he might play.

It's all about his skating.

Has it improved to NHL quality?

Apparently his skating has come a long way and was reported to be at least as good a skater as Pearson at this time.

Please play Rathbone ahead of Chatfield (the Human Turnstile). Hate to be super critical of Chatfield but his showing this year wasn't remotely good. However, he is still a rookie and I hope we give him some more time this year to see if he can start to pick up on the speed of the game a bit more. 

 

Still very uncertain how Benn kept getting played ahead of Juolevi this year. Now that he's gone perhaps we can get OJ some decent minutes as well.

If this is the case then Gadjet's another player I'm excited to see.

Another player with edge and offensive abilities.

Keep em comin.
