what makes this sting is the fact that Hamhuis was willing to waive for Dallas or Chicago

Better to get nothing instead, right?

You could dump Vrbata and Hamhuis for 2x 5th round picks and I'd be happy because at least you're getting SOMETHING for nothing. The Canucks are nowhere near winning the cup and it's in their best interest to lose as much as possible down the stretch so they can get a better draft pick.

Everything about this just infuriates me
Quoting from CDC forums. What do you guys think?


Burke was on the radio here in Calgary and made a good point as to why you don't do that. Paraphrasing him:

"You set internal prices on a player and you stick to it. It's what we (the Flames) did with Cammallari, because you want to make sure every GM knows you're not a team that just gives guys away for nothing. The moment you start doing that, it gets tough to trade anyone and make a good trade"



And that is why you don't trade just to get "something"

He'll be on Team 1040 between 3-4pm to talk about the "trade" deadline.

That is absolutely stupid

You're not trading a guy that's on contract for 4 years. He's a 32 year old UFA at the end of the season that has already expressed his desire to re-sign in the offseason, so anything gained from a trade for him is bonus for the team that is needed as many young assets as possible to rebuild.

That's such a typical Brian Burke bullshit excuse. Typical of him to put his ego in front of the betterment of the organization.

A 1st round pick and prospect is not just "something". And this is what is seems was offered for Hamhuis.

Can only imagine the interview. " ya know, we feel we got a good group here. We got some depth down the centre finally, ya know, and with games in hand we think we can make a push for the playoffs. We think, ya know, as a group. Keeping our veterans and getting the kids some more experience in this situation is good for their development. It was a tough decision but in at the end of the day, ya know, it's good for the teams future"

Money talks. Do not buy any tickets to watch this team for next 5 plus years. Make Aquaman bleed money!

I hope he sells this team to an owner who knows how hire to experienced, and competent management.

I think at the time he didn't waive his NTC yet and the Hawks didn't want to wait and find out.

It's been known for DAYS that CHI was interested, and he still needs time to consider? LOL

I'm so glad that I am not emotionally invested in this team anymore. Zero hopes given since 2011. So glad!

Trash management?✓ Can't make it to playoffs?✓ Can't tank to first overall? ✓ No trades at deadline?✓ Must be Canucks

Something triggered me to tune out after that Luongo Heritage Classic snub.
Ever since, I just never felt the same anymore about the Canucks.
And this downward spiral of a mess from management just makes it so much easier to not feel the need to ever fully invest in this team again.

I've now reverted to one of those "fans" that follow the team through this thread, watch the highlights here and there to keep myself updated enough to still be able to join in on Canuck conversations at work.

On the flip side, I get to enjoy an extra 2.5 hrs of my life 3-4 times a week.
