Worried about what? Took us longer to sign Jensen and Hodgson.

I'm permanently scared thanks to Burkie and the Umberger debacle.

Yeah, I know. I just saw Mallet is signed already and thought why Guance hasn't signed yet.

You don't have to sign draft picks in the order they were drafted.

Mallet is signed because he WILL be on the Wolves next year, Gaunce will most likely going back to the OHL so it doesn't matter as much.

Gaunce's deal is almost definitely going to slide this year anyway, so it's really not that big a thing. Worst case would likely be that he puts up 10,000 points this season and gets a few more bonuses written in if he signs next summer.

Because if he didn't want to sign an ELC before a new CBA makes ELCs worse for rookies, it says bad things about his intentions with the Canucks.

Any other year and I wouldn't have given a ****.

Overall, historically speaking, wasn't it rare (outside the high end picks) to sign your picks immediately before they even saw a camp? I thought it was till recent yrs... anyways..

Can't say i wasn't a tad concerned, but i think its just the insecurity in us as a fanbase.. heh heh...


Good to have him signed, can't wait see how he looks in camp eventually.. and to follow his progression next yr in the Q or wherever...

Seriously? Did I miss something that has happened between Gaunce and the Canucks?

If we didn't sign him before a new CBA, it is likely because WE waited to get it done.

Either of these things = rift.

Regardless, there's nothing to worry about!
