getting worse. kinda screamed lindros situation to me. imo it left hodgson entitled and unwilling to work on the bad parts of his game, dana murzynish skating

Not a fucken chance, we have moved on and sadly someone that had so much potential had his career ruined from the cockiness his dad gave him. The Canucks don't need someone like that in the dressing room

We don't have a spot for him. If we're going to to get a centre, it should be a legit 2nd line centre. Bonino and Horvat are both better than CoHo is and, realistically, neither of them should be a 2nd line centre next season.

I disagree about Horvat. He deserves a good look at top 6 duties next season IMO after the potential he displayed. I'm not saying its a lock, but he should be given an opportunity with offensive wingers.

And to answer the question, yes, I'd give CoHo a look. Only if it were a free look though and his camp were told to stfu if he wants a chance to have an NHL career. However, I don't see that happening, especially with what was made public when he left!

I agree with giving Horvat the opportunity to play on the second line. I don't think Bonino is going to be doing much better. Maybe this'll push him or both to them to have better seasons?

Problem with CoHo is that he's not gritty enough for a bottom 6 role and not good enough for a top 6 role.

Horvat deserves a look in the top 6, but we shouldn't bet next season on a sophomore (sophomore slump isn't uncommon) and we know Bonino isn't an ideal 2nd line centre (even he indicated as much).

Would feel more comfortable if we could get a guy like Ribeiro on a 1-year deal (or trade for a vet top 6 C with 1 year left) to play in that #2 slot.

If Horvat proves himself capable of handling the #2 job, it'd be easy to trade Bonino or the pending UFA.

bonino would be better 3rd line C than trading him imo.. he doesnt cost much and he has potential (ie what he showed first half of the season) i think ppl just expected him to be ryan kesler reincarnated lol

Having both Horvat and Bonino is great. They can compete for the second line slot
but for fuck sake, I dont want to go through another season of saying.. we have a top line and 3 3rd lines at best sorta deal....

A 2nd line featuring two top-15 scorers and a 31-goal scorer?

Not many teams where that's a 2nd line ...

Ya it's easy to find two other guys that can land in the top 10 scoring list. They're every fucking where.

Well to be fair, the last few cup winners have been rolling two 1st lines and a 3rd line that is better than most other teams' 2nd line.

I hope our prospects develop bloody fast cuz the Sedins numbers are going to drop off quite a bit in the next few years if they follow that same statistical pattern most other impact players do and they will be a great second line, but definitely not a first one anymore at that point.

I'm hoping we give the young kids a shot. Bring as many kids up and have them on the team with the sedins around. Its not everyday you have 2 guys on the same team pulling magic tricks against elite nhlers for the past 10 years. If the prospects can learn half the stuff the sedins pull off we should be in a good spot in a few years.

Bishop takes out his own D-man and gives Sharp a giftwrapped goal.

He goofed!
