What has Granlund done to be worth Shinkaruk? 1 goal, 1 assist in 9 games? 37% FO%? That's with 15 minutes/game TOI, 1:30 PP TOI/game ...
Shinkaruk is STILL the leading scorer for the Comets despite being traded 5 weeks ago ... And is it any surprise that the Comets have tanked almost as hard as the Canucks since that trade? He was literally the only offensively-gifted forward we had down there ... at age 21 ... with 2 years left on his ELC ...
That trade was awful at the time it was made and it's even worse 5 weeks later as now it looks like we'll miss the playoffs in the AHL now, too.
I liked Shinkaruk. He should have been given more of a chance. But he was a Gillis pick, so Benning did not care.
Playing 14 games for the Stockton Heat in the AHL after the trade, he has 5 goals and 5 assists. So it seems like he is getting more and more consistent.
Anyways, the Canucks management is a mess as they seem to have no direction. Do a proper rebuild please, not just a "re-tool". Granlund and Larsen? Pile up draft picks like what the Leafs are doing. Canucks have hit rock bottom like the season before the Sedins were drafted.
yea im sure its looked like he has played a lot better. but that's probably because theres been lots of injuries to our d that's actually good, 3 rookie d in hutton/tryamkin/pedan getting playing time, and the revolving door of shit in bartowski/biega/weber/fedun
hes overpaid, while constantly hurting the team. hes better off being bought out and having a similar player in tryamkin, who is 4 years younger take his place at a lower cap hit. This then allows us to spend more on ufa's upfront so our young forwards can play lots of minutes in the AHL. because sitting them out for 30-40 games and giving them 5-12min ice time when they do play, is stupid as fuck
Shinkaruk with his first NHL point tonight in his first game with the Flames.
You can see Shinkaruk's slick footwork again while entering the offensive zone. That can fool some opposing players making them think if he will pass or not. That's what I liked about him. His NHL preseason goals with the Canucks showcased his good footwork as well.
He was one of my favourite Canuck prospects. Damn why did Canucks management get rid of him? He is much more valuable than Vey. This is so frustrating.
fucking edmonton...those cunts should be banned from getting top 3 picks for the next decade

^thats why when the GM's had or have their meetings they should implement a rule stating that no team can have the first overall in a certain amount of years...ie only can have the first overall once in a 5 year span!
also i cant see van winnning against sj,ana,la, those would be another 4 losses, would have to come down to the last 3 games of the season to determine last in the league! We have a good chance of finishing dead last if everything goes to plan....
Apparently the league had to hold Bennings and Lindens hand during the Corrado waiver process.
Who sent the tweet out?
