This is Sacco we're talking about here...he was a Jack Adams finalist in his first year at the helm...surely we should cut the man some slack, he knows what he's doing right?

Also, you have 1 post to 20,000! CONGRATS!!

Why did we trade Liles? He was the only mobile dman we had other than EJ.

And all we got for him was a 2nd with a full year left on his contract. The Leafs got a 1st, Colborne, and I think another pick when they traded Kaberle at the deadline with a few months left on his contract. Kaberle's value at the time was a bit more than Liles but a 2nd...that's it?

I'm not gonna bother keeping up with line combo's tonight, just focus on a few #'s like Pirate's.

By far Sherman's worst move and biggest mistake.

I'm sure we can work something out. How about we just offer up Andrew Ebbett or Malholtra as a sacrificial lamb? Seems like a win-win...

Canucks score twice in the first minute and win 7-1.
Duchene and Stastny get injured for at least 4 weeks.
Johnson gets injured for the rest of the season.
Varly is pulled and pulls his groin as he falls when leaving the ice and is out for 5 weeks.

Our line-up against Calgary:
McGinn-Mitchell-Jones
Hejduk-Olver-Parenteau
McLeod-Sgarbossa-Kobasew
VdG-Malone-Bordeleau

Wilson-Hunwick
Hejda-O'Byrne
O'Brien-Zanon

Giggy
Pickard

There we go
That looks like a roster that will succeed with Sacco's great dump n chase system.

Simply because we wanted Hejda. Think of that whole deal as Hejda + 2nd for Liles. Still think we got the short end of the stick, but that was the reasoning.

Our defense wouldn't be nearly as bad with him in the line up though.

Liles - EJ
Wilson - ROB
Hejda - Barrie

That looks a hell of a lot better to me. That is also why I wouldn't have been opposed to giving Matt Carle the deal he got in Tampa. He is a slightly better and younger version of Liles. Our defense wouldn't have nearly the transition problems, and Carle would only be overpaid by about 1m.

We had the cap space though to have both Liles and Hejda. I was fine with moving him because he had 1 season left on his contract it's just that the return was terrible even with 1 year left. We finished 2nd last that season so we might as well have moved him at the trade deadline then and gotten something better.

Unless we're really a budget team that can't have both Liles and Hejda.

In my opinion that was and quite possibly is the case.

Not sure how you can say that's better. Liles would be abuse playing with EJ. He was pretty much inconsistent defensively and a joke on the PP.

Liles always looked the best when he didn't have to carry the pairing. In the very brief time he was next to EJ, he actually looked pretty good. One of the Avs biggest problems is the lack of transition from the defensemen. Liles is much, much better than anybody else on the team except EJ. I think the Avs expected one of Barrie or Elliott to jump in and provide that part of the game, it just hasn't happened yet.

I see Canucks fans are trying to use reverse suckology on us here. It's not going to work.

Pfft a real fan would quit.

It works out for me because I don't have to stay up after 2am.
