Gordon had 16 goals and 10 assists in 47 games for the #Chicago Wolves. GM Wendell Young says Gordon is their best player right now.
The player superstar we acquired for Sebastian Erixon last year will be making his Canucks debut.

Nobody wants to trade period. Too many teams in contention for playoffs.

He was the best player for maybe 10-15 games this season. He has been below average for the last 5-6 games.

You think you could just pick up Boychuk off waivers than pick up Gordon. THat is a far better move than bringing up Gordon's useless ass.

Problem is that the Canucks are at 48 contracts, and with the Canucks chasing that monster college Dman and other needs, adding a player like Boychuk who isn't much different from players such as Schroeder, and Ebbett isn't a smart move when you look at what the Canucks need to do coming up to the deadline.

Is this a case of reporters asking Wendell Young about Gordon, or is it the more disturbing possibility that the Canucks rely on the opinion of the Wolves' GM as to who they should call up in case of injury?

Because if it's the latter, Young has an agenda over and above the Canucks best interest. His AHL team is also not that good as is, calling his judgement into question as well.

He's the best centre on their roster, so if the Canucks were looking to call up a centre then his comments make sense. He's not the best player overall.

Are you kidding me. Gordon is awesome. Why bother rewarding Bill Sweatt after all the effort that guy has brung. Why bother giving Jensen a kick at the old NHL can for a couple of games to get his pro-beak wet. Why bother encouraging Rodin to stay in North America next season by giving him a couple of NHL paychecks and games. Nope. Gordon is the man. He will single handedly bring this team around. I am super stoked about this call up.........now where did I put that sarcasm sign of mine???

Well, that helps a bit. Hopefully he is good at faceoffs

You are right and I knew that, just so damn bitter at Gordon ahead of Archie or at least Jensen for 3-4 games.

Rodin can barely hold his own in the AHL right now and is injured anyway. Sweatt sucks and is overrated by the fans around here and he's injured. Jensen needs more time to figure things out.

Anything else? The over-reaction here so far is quite amusing

Why are we calling up a center? Neither Sestito or Kassian are centers.

Because Ebbett can play both centre and wing, but sucks at face-offs. Gordon is an upgrade in that regard.

I'd have preferred to see Archibald, but I'm not taking it as hard as berStuzzi.

If he's the best center (other than Ebbett ) we have on the Wolves....well then, something is wrong.
