Travis Moen is my pick.

Ps. Oreskovich was concussed again, I haven't heard any details but if it's serious he may be donzo. The guy has had a handful of conkys.

Ha, thanks. I was just thinking seconds ago that I needed a Sunday movie to download for after the game.

Sigh... yes, I'm going to watch the game.

Adding one gritty player doesn't change the makeup of your entire team.

I disagree - remember how desperately the team needed a PMD prior to the Ehrhoff deal? Picking him up dramatically changed the makeup of our team.

Granted, bit of a difference between a defenceman playing 20 minutes and a 3rd liner playing 10, however one pickup can change the makeup of a team.

In this case it could lead to an increase that elusive concept known as 'team toughness', which the Canucks are lacking. How much is overblown, but there is still something missing.

I picked Bernier in this original poll way back when. Looks like he just signed a minimum 525k 2-way deal with NJ. I would have definitely taken him at that sort of rate. If nothing else, he'd have been another big body who could be called up for the playoffs, and has a bit of familiarity with the team, coach, and system. AV seemed to at least get serviceable play out of the guy.

Not a huge missed opportunity, but i do think he would've been a half-decent depth grab.
