Or that Crha isnt much of an agent for him - 40 points scorer with some attributes should have made more. Good deal for Canucks though.

I always liked Bulis and he was one of my favorite Habs. But he wore out his welcome when he started demanding for playing time.

Bulis is a fast skater but thats about it, he has hands of stone and really no finnishing skills.

prediction: 65-70 pts for Bulis next season (if no injuries).

Bulis is not a scorer nor a playmaker. How many good scoring chances has he missed in the last few years? The guy panics when he has a chance to score. Also, he doesn't have the vision to be a playmaker. His role is that of 3rd line winger and I think Gainey just got tired of his complaining.

I've never seen a player coward away from going into the boards like Boo-useless. 90% of the time when he is racing to the boards to get the puck he will slow down and avoid going ot the boards first and ultimately never end up with the puck. You'd think that someone who had some speed would use it to his benefit and win these races for the puck.

I have said it before and I will say it again.... in the NHL, Bulis is a forechecking 3rd liner who's speed is his only asset. In a lesser league where he has the time and space to think, he is a super hero.

Trouble is... this IS the NHL. He just cannot make decisions at the speed that he needs to be an impact player.

He had his shot. Now let another guy get a crack at being an impact Hab.

Why are you comparing him to Garth Murray? They're 2 completely different types of players. If you want the filler that will get you the odd goal while playing a relatively sound 2-way game (save for last year) yes, Bulis is better, but if you need someone to work the boards and grind his way up and down the ice while having a protect and defend first mentality (either a teammate or his own zone), the choice is also very clear, Murray.

Interesting that I brought back this topic and mentioned the potential impact of the arbitration results.

Now that being said, Vancouver didn't have any player set for arbitration. However, they might have decided that Bulis' price will go up soon because of the other teams getting dissapointing result in the arbitration process.
