how will vrbata have a say in where he gets traded...i dont think he has a no movement/no trade clause?

as for higgins he should be bought out/put on waivers he is fucking useless and is too worried about looking good on the ice with his beard and hair...rather give gaunce a shot!

LOL how do they figure the Canucks have an 11% chance?

We're still in a playoff spot...although we are tied for the least wins in the NHL with Leafs and Ducks. Four points out of last place...C'MON BOYS WE CAN DO THIS

Already happened with Gillis. You'd hope Aquaman would've learned his lesson about letting the hockey people run the hockey team.

Don't forget his abs!

I think Higgins is okay, but he has a bigger role than he should have because this team is grossly mismanaged.

If they are still hovering around the bottom of the league in April, the smart business decision is to tank. Not this first round sweep revenue bullshit.
Season is over in April, also past the trade deadline.

Tanking would be February.

I believe he has a limited NTC so he can say who he doesn't want to go to.

My biggest concern with the team is that the team's direction and WD's direction doesn't match.
WD is doing everything he can within his powers to get the team into the playoffs while the team's real focus is developing the kids, and getting more picks.
What good is picking up veterans via trades/waiver and pushing the kids down to Utica or back to juniors.
And they really need to sit down with Jensen and figure out what they are going to do with him as he is rotting away doing next to nothing in Utica.

Unless Jensen reinvents his game he's a bust.

I think you mean the direction of what fans want vs. What the owners/WD want. Like someone else mentioned before, I don't think aquaman can stomach consecutive years of non playoff revenue.

Coach Willie Desjardins said he saw an uptick in Baertschi’s play once he started giving him some time on Vancouver’s second-unit power play.

“It was funny, as soon as he went on the power play he seemed to get a little bit of jump,” Desjardins said. “It was like he got excited about playing. It’s funny how that works. That added to his game and his last four or five games have been his best games.”


Too bad it has no effect on guys like Vey or Dorsett

He's good on the boards/cycle. Also, he put up 36 points last year, which is pretty good for $2.5M.

This year, however, he's been a train wreck. He was playing over his head last season, but still managed to produce. This year, he's not producing but still getting 14 minutes/night with PP and PK duties. A 10-point player should be on the 4th line, not bouncing between the 2nd and 3rd lines with PP and PK duties.

Waiving him at this point doesn't do us much good, IMO. Buyout obviously can't happen until the summer. Definitely wouldn't be opposed to buying him out if we can't move him. $2.5M for a 33-year-old (next season) currently on pace for 10 points almost halfway through the season isn't good roster management.

He didn't hire himself. He didn't promote himself several times in less than 2 years.

How do you blame a guy for taking a job/promotion?

He also said that Higgins has no trade value. Put him on waivers, hes a pylon out there. Bring up Gaunce in his place.

This Higgins has no trade value thing is some idiot on twitter who asked a difficult question at the summer summit and then ranted, bragged spit bullshit on twitter... I wouldnt trust that.

Higgins is alright on the PK... theres still that part of his game...

Some of the shit I've read in this thread in the last few seasons

Canucks threads of old on RS were a very nice escape from CDC logic. No wonder MG1 stays away these days.. I may have to follow his lead.
