I highly doubt management will clean house.

Was reading an article on Aquilini a month ago about his work with kids at Templeton. Somewhere in the article he said how this team has champagne problems?!? like there are too many good players.

I'm going to expect tweaks here and there probably.

I too think players are given too much leeway with NTC's on top of long term deals. Their salary is given in exchange for long term commitment. The length of term is certainly to circumvent the cap, even if they plan to play through the end of the contract. In Lu's situation, the only way MG could have afforded re-signing Lu was to give up term in exchange. He made 10M in the first year of his contract, and 6.7M until 2017-18. No team would be able to afford him at that price, so you MUST give up term in exchange.

I feel NTC's are over the top. Players need to understand they are an asset, they are paid big money that is guaranteed, its part of the business. You get traded from a contender to a rebuilder, learn to deal with it. You can sit and pout and look like an idiot if it's really that much of a problem to be paid millions to play a game in a market that you don't like.

His ability to rebound is irrelevant at this point. What about the game after that, and the one after that? I'm a fan and supporter, but also a realist who has learned to not invest myself emotionally. Like you, I'm looking forward to some changes.

I would have to disagree. It would be a waste to have a goalie of Schneider's calibre sitting and potentially rotting through a rebuild when we can get some needed valuable assets to help with the rebuild in exchange. Ride Lu through the tough years since he has proven difficult to trade already, and wait for the next younger goalie to come around and relieve Lu, who will be over the hill by then and ready to relinquish his starter role.

The Islanders are stepping up their game against the Penguins. Their young guns like Tavares and Okposo are providing the offence. Now that is
the kind of heart the Canucks must show in tonight's game.

-deflected puck just went past Nabakov.
