someone said it right
this team has one more year left before its all said and done
With cap going up and some contracts coming off the books, its a last shot to build around the core

and then I can see Gillis packin his bags

This is Schroeder's shot at the big club. He's done if he can't play well.

Nashville and Minnesota will always welcome Schroeder whenever Canucks decide to let him go.

Video popped up on my Facebook today. Turns out it was my friends who traveled from Kelowna to Vancouver for the game. 2 Hawks fans, 2 Canucks fans. The guy whos jersey was thrown is as big of a Canucks fan as anyone Ive ever met.

Comprehend much? It was a canucks fan who took his jersey off and the Hawks fan threw it. His jersey had a custom last name. Actually the Hawks jersey guy has a custom name too

Even without a NTC, players kind of have that power anyways. They can refuse to report to a team they've been traded to for example, and it would be foolish for a team to trade a guy to a team he refuses to go to even if its within their right. A NTC just formally involves the player to determine who the team can use as a trading partner, that's the way I view them anyways. I don't think asking a player to waive a NTC necessarily poisons the water for all current and future players, its a reality of the business.

There can be a number of reasons why players would accept waiving their NTC, not just wanting to GTFO. If they are struggling under the system their team plays esp if a contract year is coming up; wanting to play for a contending team; wanting to play in a nicer city with better weather or tax savings; etc etc.

If you take the Luongo saga from the past, Lu never came out and asked to be traded outright yet he was expecting and wanting to be moved, MG never explicitly asked Lu to waive his NTC yet was wanting to move Lu. So something has to give, its a bit of a dance
Well said..Loui Ericksson is an example of someone waiving their NTC for a move.

and yes I would agree, it does not "poison" the climate in a particular club just because someone has been asked to waive his NTC/NMC.

Lol, if this is true, he fooled Puck Daddy! From Yahoo Sports:

Did Blackhawks fan frame Vancouver fans for jersey toss onto ice?

Earlier this season, an Edmonton Oilers fan unleashed one of the ultimate symbols of protest in hockey: Throwing one’s jersey on the ice in disgust.

It was a moment that signaled the nadir of their struggling regime, prompting Coach Dallas Eakins to label the disgruntled season-ticket holder as “a quitter.”

The Vancouver Canucks aren’t nearly in those dire straights, although they’ve lost two in a row and are 4-6 in their last 10. So it was a bit surprising to see a Canucks jersey hit the ice during their 5-2 loss to the rival Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday:

Uh-oh. Well at least Tortorella is suspended so he couldn’t burn through the media like the fires of Pompeii when that question was asked.

The horror! The shame!

The … incredible troll job by a Blackhawks fan?

Yup:

As discovered by Mega Nuck, you can see a Blackhawks fan carrying a Vancouver jersey down near the ice in the lower bowl right before it hit the rink. That’s just devious...

Someone pretending to be a Canucks fan in an attempt to impugn the good name of the people of Vancouver? Must have been an anarchist.

So I guess your friend who's the biggest Canuck fan you know of has called the quits?
Seems like he just had enough, and told his Blackhawk fan buddy to just take his jersey and chuck it.

But why wouldn't he do it himself?

I think it would be a stronger statement if you did it yourself. But at the same time, I feel like there are better ways to show your disapproval of the team.

Western Conf teams suggest the Rangers are gathering intel on Chris Stewart. Callahan for Stewart would be a sweet deal for the Blues.

I understand Callahan being a UFA and the type of contract he's looking for won't fetch some crazy value being a rental at the trade deadline, I sure hope they can get more than Chris Stewart though he might be underrated but still think they can try to find something better

Chris Stewart just needs a change of scenery. Kinda disappointing that his production is so up and down

The Oiler fan has every right to toss his jersey.....canuck fan...not so much. We've enjoyed almost a decade of exciting hockey compared to the oilers who has no success other than a cinderella run to the cup final. 4 number 1 draft picks and multiple coach changes and they are still basement dwellers. I'd be choked/upset too if that was my team.
