We go from MG trying to get people like Deboers and Craig Hartsburg and end up with Ryan Walter. Somehow this saddens me.
This feels like a Brian Burke special "I could have had Nash or Kipprusoff for a 2nd rounder and a cup of coffee, but I wouldn't give up the cup of coffee, screw that."
Very meh about this hiring. I hope it improves our faceoffs, and Ryan does have a long line of hockey experience, I was just kind of hoping for some non ex-Canucks to be in the mix, someone with a bit of offensive flair.
Anyways, my initial reaction is blah, but who knows, I am far from saying this is horrible, it could turn out fine, I will just say for now I am pessimistic as always.
