Adam Courchaine

Adam Courchaine was not signed by Minnesota and is too old to re-enter the draft. Do you think he will be at the Canucks prospect camp? Are there any other Giants that may be at prospect camp with the Canucks?

Courchaine's a guy that I could see the Canucks inviting to camp, maybe give him a contract if he proves that he can play with some good talent.

I personally like his skills, especially his solid two way game, now can his game translate over to a higher level? Hopefully.

I think the Canucks should definately invite him to camp. He's put up excellent numbers with great consistency in his four years in Vancouver.

Vancouver WHL 29 16 12 28

2002-03 Vancouver WHL 71 43 42 85

Vancouver WHL 70 39 43 82

WHL 71 28 50 78

He's definately capable at the junior level, and as zack attack says hopefully he can take that to the next level. Never know.. may be a diamond to pick up after the wild leave him.

Yeah, I'd like to see this. He's going to have to add some strength to make it anywhere as a pro, but I always liked him in junior. Too much offensive talent not to give him a chance.

Definetly worth looking at signing him as a free agent.

Could he be a Trevor Letowski type?

A Trevor Letowski who can score

Canucks should invite Courchaine! I remember he played on a line with trevor linden and played pretty well in the Canucks Giants charity game.

Courchaine has been at earlier Canuck camps. Certainly no harm in inviting to camp. Thought Canucks might have looked a Grant.

I'd invite him. He likes Vancouver, and could probably land a 3rd-4th line job for the Canucks. He has great hands and good speed. He probably wouldn't mind being a Moose for that matter if no other team wanted him.

Tristen Grant was signed by the Flyers.

Well, his hometown is Winnipeg, Manitoba and so I think he will fit with the Canucks pretty well.

I know I am in the VAST minority here


I am have Couchaine play a lot when I was a season tix holder for the giants

and I am not a big fan of the guy----I don't like his skating style and I don't like how he avoided the hard play in many games I saw

I just did not see him play 3-4 times I am talking around 60 times---I went to every giants game for two years and about 80% of the third year

His numbers aren't representative, he's very very soft, although he did make progress as the season went on. IMO, he'd have to start as a ECHL guy and try to get stronger.

that is one of the reasons Minny did not want to sign him for what he wanted(rumoured atleast) and I thihnk he is soft and I think he has a higher view of himself then he should. I give his numbers more to the players he was playing with then his own natural talent

I'd say on the Giants he created his own numbers, but that I don't think his game translates well to the next level where everyone has good skills and you need to bring more to the table. In his position though, where holding out for one week makes you a free agent, it makes sense to ask for a little more then you should and then go to free agency.
