But even then, I'm not sure as a Canuck fan that I want him on our roster. He could cause someone to take a run at one of our own stars.
Having Duco added to Lapierre (and Burrows if he reverts to previous years' form) seems to me like when Dallas added Avery to Ott. The rest of the team is going to be dragged into a lot of stuff those two start. And unlike Dallas the Canucks don't have the team toughness to deal with it, and it wore thin in Dallas pretty quickly regardless.
