Canucks waive F Peter Schaefer - Cleared

Quote:
The Vancouver Canucks placed forward Peter Schaefer on waivers Tuesday.

Schaefer has two points and a minus three rating in 16 games with the team this year.

The 33-year-old veteran signed with Vancouver after being invited to training camp this year.

Schaefer spent last season with Boston's AHL affiliate in Providence.

He hasn't played that well obviously, doesn't bring enough to the table anymore. He's not physical, he's slow and he can't get rid of the puck fast enough when he gets it?

canucks 4th line guys get next to no minutes. vigneault doesnt really trust them out there (or so he says in a lot of his post-game interviews)

He doesn't trust them because they're ****ing terrible

Seriously AV? Seriously? We've got this much "talent" on the 4th line and Desbiens, Bolduc, Rypien, Bliznak, Perrault + Schaefer were ALL WORTH THE ROSTER SPOT OVER BRENDAN MORRISON???

Yeah, I don't think I could rationalize giving up Morrison at the beginning of the season either for Schaefer.
A guy coming in, has history with the team, is a hard working defensive forward, loves to be in the city, and doesn't get in and instead a guy who gets picked up off FA and then waived a little past a quarter into the season.

That situation probably pissed Morrison off quite a bit, I know I would hate that. Still, it's not like it's Vancouver who is the only team who makes these sorts of decisions, but every time, it usually comes back to hurt that team who doesn't acknowledge that player, and hindsight is 20/20..

Calgary seems to be enjoying him though. Solid player, probably great dressing room leadership.

It's not as simple as the Canucks not wanting Morrison. I'm pretty sure he wanted a bigger role. Hard to say though as we weren't there. But I don't think it's as simple as picking Schaefer over Morrison.

On the topic of Schaefer though, he's pretty soft for a 4th liner, seems a bit out of shape, but is a decent PKer and good on the boards. Doubt he gets claimed.

Schaefer is an NHLer, just not on the Canucks.

He wasn't good, but at least he could do SOMETHING (good boardplay + PK). Now our 4th line has no discernible talents, no not even hitting. I was so stoked for our 4th line this preseason.

Schaefer(good two-way player/PK)-Morrison(PK/PP/ability to make things happen offensively)-Oreskovic (Crash+Bang, probably the best hitter on the team)

Now our most talented 4th liner in every category is Glass.

At least I have faith in Gillis to upgrade.

Useful fourth line forward. Not the guy I would have sent packing. Vigneault likes having big, useless forwards with "grit" on the fourth line.

Schaefer should find a home somewhere else in the NHL.

Nobody will take this guy. Schaefer looked unspectacular since October and has been a healthy scratch quite a lot. I feel this guys NHL days are done.

If he retires, that would be too bad. Good player and teammate. I'd love for the Sens to give him another shot if they had a spot for him.

Unfortunately, at this stage, I think Winchester does everything Schaefer does as well or better (as well as being good on faceoffs)...

This is progress for Gillis. His annual contract to a guy that used to play in the NHL wasn't costly and it was over quickly.

With Schaefer in breach of contract for not reporting to Manitoba after clearing waivers, he goes through waivers again to become a UFA.

So since he cleared and refused to report to Manitoba, can they just terminate the contract if he clears again? I can't imagine anyone would claim him this time around.

It seems like AV is finally getting the message. I'm guessing that either Gillis or ownership, or both, have talked to him.

- Ditch Schaefer. Check!
- Agree to let our entire defence play together for a string of games. including Ballard. Check!
- Replace Samuelsson with Burrows on the Sedin line. Maybe tonight?


It's funny, really. I was extremely stoked to see our bottom six before opening night only to have that dream crushed within a week. No Morrison. No Oreskovich. Terrible Schaefer. Now we're stuck with the same, bad, 4th line as last year. Glass, Rypien, + whoever.

Looks like he'll clear and his contract will be terminated. Then he can retire.

Which is why whoever puts up the best offer for Bieksa, we SHOULD be getting back a decent 4th line center, plus hopefully a cheap defensive dman.
