Do you think Malhotra should be playing?

Alright so we all know Gillis is not letting Malholtra play because of his eye. I miss watching this guy play and it just brings memories back to 2011 anyways do you think he should play yes or no. Also do you think he will have a spot in front office in the future for the Canucks?

No. And it's Malhotra not Malholtra.

The Canucks Staff have a much better evaluation on Manny than any of us do, if they say he shouldn't play, he shouldn't.

No, but I don't think it stops him from trying to sign somewhere in the off-season.

Damnit! I voted yes but I meant no. I also believe the Canucks staff are not out to do Manny harm. They have his best interests at heart. I have to believe that if they feel his safety is at risk then there is good reason. It sucks but I fully agree with what the Canucks have done and think it was classy. Shutting a player down for his own health is a hard thing to do and takes guts.

Voted no. He was a shell of the player he once was, and that was clear in the games he played in, no disputing that. I still believe Malhotra should have the final say in whether or not he can play, seeing as he is able to play, but he can be in danger on the ice with his vision in his eye.

If he's shut down, he's shut down. We've all seen what's happened to him as a player.

Get real.

It's a sad situation but no, he shouldn't be playing and that's that.

I miss him too but that player was gone the moment the puck deflected up into his face.

We could use him, but let's be honest - he's a shell of his former self and if the guy ever gets injured again the Canucks org. would look pretty bad. I'm sure they're also shutting him down for his own good, but there's obviously self-interest going on too.

I'd like him as a 4th liner, a face-off specialist. The Canucks used to dominate at the dot, but now it seems like they get their clocks cleaned everytime. Take out Sestito and put in Malhotra.

That said, Gillis was adamantly clear that Malhotra will never again play for the Canucks.

bob mckenzie twitted a link to a medical article the other day and some of it contained examples of nhl players losing some of their vision after a fight or a hit or something like that, but carrying on to finish the game despite barely being able to see, and you know that made me think of Manny and how it's probably for the best he got shut down, particularly given the new child. i mean obviously he didn't get hurt in a fight or anything like that, but i'm sure his desire to soldier on past the point of his own good was every bit as strong as those guys

He has said that he wants to play. Gillis won't let him.

I dont think he should be playing, he would be too vulnerable. With that, i can't shake the feeling that this was a move to get Manny off the salary cap as much as anything else.

Sad thing is he will probably sign somewhere else. I really hope he does become a part of the Canucks organization after he retires.

From what I understand, and I could be wrong, but the Canucks haven't added Manny to LTR so this had nothing to do with cap manipulation or circumvention.

Correct. There was no point in time where having Malhotra on IR was somehow advantageous. You could easily argue that it was in fact disadvantageous given that despite what people saw on-ice, Malhotra was still good at winning face-offs and getting pucks out of our own zone. Our face-off and possession stats declined after he was shutdown.

Didn't putting Manny on IR make room for Kesler coming off IR?

Yes, but that was all about roster space as apposed to cap space. Teams are only allowed to carry so many players on the main roster. If Manny was playing they would have had to send somebody down.

I didn't bring up cap space. The timing was curious. A few days later, they had to clear another spot for Booth.
