^^^ I feel like majority of the teams in the West got better, while we are pretty much status quo.

It's a good thing that we're status quo. We were 1 win away from winning Lord Stanley. Why would MG need to completely change the roster? We just need a few minor tweaks, nothing more.

Although we were only 1 win away, we can always make adjustments to make our team better. We need a clutch player who can build some chemistry with kesler on that second line an really step it up in the playoffs.

Sign Jason Arnott to a 1 year deal for veteran presence and a big body upfront?

Face it, free agency has been ruined by a huge minimum level, and disgusting front loaded contracts. Canucks only need to make some minor but important adjustments, but because of the state of free agency, becoming part of the "frenzy" is not the way to do it. IMO

Lots of people knocking the Sturm signing. Here is his scouting report from NHL Forecaster.

ASSETS: Has excellent speed and puck-handling skills. Possesses good hockey sense and sees the ice very well. His speed makes him a special-teams weapon. Plays well in all three zones.

FLAWS: Isn't overly big and can get pushed around. Hasn't put up the numbers expected of him in his career. Doesn't show a lot of offensive consistency. Is injury-prone.

CAREER POTENTIAL: Speedy, yet fragile veteran winger.

The biggest knock on Sturm is that he's not a playoff performer. Well to that I say that's what happens when you play for the Sharks most of your career

lol how many points was he projected to put up when he got drafted?
he's been a solid 20+ goalscorer throughout his career which doesn't seem bad. Kinda reminds me of the player Raymond might turn out to be like

It's a much healthier league that's bringing in more money than before.

NHL Revenue:
2005-06 1.8B
2010-11 2.9B

Plus, under the CBA, players get 57% of league revenue, and any excess goes into escrow. So who cares what the salary numbers are? And with the cap, you don't get 3-4 teams spending to buy a cup. Instead, you have to earn it by managing your team properly. Great job NHL.

status quo does not always pan out. Philly was 2 wins away in 2010 and look at what happened to them the following year.

Penner is useless. He had one good year in Anaheim's run to the finals and has had a half-season of good hockey ever since. They traded arguably one of their best prospects (Schenn) and a gritty heart-and-soul player (Simmonds) for Richards which is a toss-up in terms of value.

Everyone needs to relax. Besides, after last season, I don't care about what the Canucks do in the regular season so long as they make the playoffs playing well (whether that means a lower or higher seed - it doesn't matter.)

You're right it doesn't. In the summer of 1994, we traded for Alex Mogilny, but we got bounced in the 2nd round. But Philly's problems last year were goaltending and a division in the locker room between Pronger and Richards. As far as I know, we don't have any divisions in the locker room and we still have the league's best goaltending duo.

I don't understand why everyone is so pissed off why Gillis didn't want to make some big moves. Honestly I'm happy he didn't, in order to make a splash he would of had to over pay for a decent player for a ridiculous length contract. So he signed Sturm good hes a decent player and we didn't pay much for him. If it works awesome but if it doesn't it's only one year and we can always trade him as well.

Team's over paying right now are only handicapping them selves for years to come and remember our core is signed we just need a couple pieces which Gillis will still work on which will benefit us in the future and not the player.

that scouting report must be old because sturm has had a broken leg/fibula and 2 acl surgeries in the last 3 years and has skated like a 45yrold because of it.

I never said that he would need to blow up the team. I think its pretty obvious, the team just needs some minor additions. All I meant mainly was the West is going to be a harder place to play in. It's going to be a grind next year compared to last.

it's been said before, but i think the top 6 forward we're looking for will come via trade. who we trade for that forward is up for debate.
