tho i dont like waiving volpatti for the same reasons many nucks fans have mentioned (hitting toughness etc.), the canucks aren't far from getting pinnizotto back. He was one of the players gillis picked up from the caps i believe who does everything the exact same as volpatti, but more than likely better, quicker, etc. (my best guess and most optimistic view is he turns into a jannik hansen 2.0). He has been injury plagued since joining the canucks so never got the chance to come to the bigs (much like volpatti).

As for those saying "WTF!!! why not ebbett or weise!?!?!?!", apparently you don't realize that both weise and ebbett are capable of playing the PK (which some posters have mentioned). Aside from that benefit, ebbett is a natural centerman and we need center depth a hell of a lot more than wing depth. center depth is not easy to find/pickup on the cheap like ebbett.
