coaching I'd actually argue is one benefit Vancouver has since Rollie Melanson has been doing a pretty solid job... other than that, not sure why he'd want to come
I think in one of those pre game sportsnet shin digs they said melanson might not be returning.. I have no proof or sauce but I'm pretty sure I heard that while watching a past game. Could be just rumblings out of the media though.

Also no point on blowing the demko delay out of the water. Vancouver you think would be a good destination, probably one of the best cities to live in the NHL, also by the time demko is in his prime canucks will have had a couple years of gathering some high draft choices that will hopefully pan out.

A CBJ win tonight means any type of loss against Edmonton clinches 28th place.

But they can still offer performance bonuses right? Or is that gone?
Maybe I'm losing my memory a little, that's still a thing right?

Player's on an ELC are entitled to negotiate a signing bonus up to 10% of their annual salary, games played bonuses, Exhibit 5 Type A performance bonuses (limited), and Exhibit Type B performance bonuses.

This was mentioned quite a few times on TSN1040 and they even had someone from the Canucks on the radio and they asked them that question.
It sounded like Rolie is choosing not to stay, but no one knows why.
Could be family reasons.

On 1040 several weeks ago, they speculated a frosty relationship with Miller may be one of the reasons. At this point, only management and Rolie know for certain.

The speculation is that Dan Cloutier will be promoted from Utica and/or Alex Auld will be hired if Melanson doesn't come back.

Obviously Demko is hurt that McCann has wished Boeser good luck, but had no tweet for him. Ending their bromance, and any love, along with intentions of signing he had with the Canucks

well since Demo didn't make it to the national championship game why would McCann wish him luck for something he didn't make?

Go jackets and go oilers tonight!

I'd be pretty damn happy with a second overall pick.


Or I'd be pretty happy with laine

The more clips I see on Laine the more I like him, he's also huge which is a big thing as well but it's also we need a pure scorer and he seems like one s far

If we do get the second pick and Benning and some how make a blockbuster to get the 3rd pick as well that could make a lot of sense. At least the Fins can speak and understand English unlike most Russian players
