Le sigh.

I think we are witnessing the Canucks fall from grace (I say this not due to this signing, just... everything going on in the organization).


I'm sure they didn't evaluate the fact that he has some upside coming back from injury, has skated this year and that Chris Pronger wasn't available.

Apparently Canuck fans think a Norris Trophy winner can come in for an 8th spot for the league minimum.

And if you knew anything at all about hockey, you would know that Barker only had a 25 game contract, and was released at the end because the AHL Stars wanted to bring up Hubert Labrie who is a 21 year old Dallas prospect who is having a great season as a shut down D-man in the ECHL.

And don't say "le sigh." I'm bettng you're not a fat valley girl so you shouldn't type annoying stuff like that.
