Glad to see him stay.

What a joke, another year without a cup for the canucks! :dunno:

All that article states is that the 'nucks made a qualifying offer to Clouts to keep his rights, he hasn't accepted it yet.

I find it a bit weird that this is even being reported. :dunno:

I guess it's newsworthy because it confirms that Vancouver will retain his rights rather than letting him walk.

I guess, but there are a TON of other players in his situation. Maybe it's just me, but we never hear about who got qualified down here 'til the last day for offers.

just because he got qualified doesn't mean they won't turn around and deal him anyway.

Well, Cloutier isn't your average RFA. There are a lot of question marks surrounding him and the Canucks' future together. Anyway, I think most people expected this anyway.

He was qualified at 2.4 million.

There was never any doubt they would qualify him. He's a good buy at $2.75m or so. The question is whether they'll walk away from arbitration if it gets that far.

if the league is as ignorant about him as this forum, then he shouldn't walk away with too much of a raise.

But he let in a shot from the redline 2 years ago! He should be lucky to still have a job in the NHL! Right??! (just ignore his back to back to back 30 win seasons.)

There's a difference between a team that is only missing one element to win the cup (Canucks and their goalie) and a rebuilding team (Habs).

Canucks just shot themselves in the foot resigning Cloutier.

and what exactly are they supposed to do? ask New Jersey and Florida to trade them Brodeur and Luongo? they cannot afford to have an $8 million free agent goaltender, and all available goaltenders making decent money are not an upgrade at all.

you think they'd be better off not qualifying Cloutier and going with and Auld/McVicar tandem?
