I laughed. And I will likely laugh in the future too.

Good job, Nucks.

In may be a little silly to compare Edmonton last year and Vancouver of this year. Cam Barker was pencilled in by many as a top-four defenseman in Edmonton. The Best Case Scenario for Cam Barker at this point is an extra defenceman for depth in case of injuries.

I've heard that one before too.

Making terrible on-ice decisions has nothing to do with nagging injuries.

We were wrong.
Difference is that Gillis isn't expecting him to be top 2, he's expecting him to fill in for injuries

Van. must feel their coaches can get something out of him, otherwise they would of just picked up a young waiver wire guy.

Remember the thread when Hossa signed with the Hawks and someone claimed that Barker was a 4,5-5m dollar defenseman and worth more than Keith? Those were the days

You may be right, and Cam Barker continues to stink. However that's no skin off of anyone's nose except Aquilini's pocketbook.

HF Boards has a tendency to think that all players that are signed must be of all star caliber. This is a very good depth move for the Nucks. Good signing and I hope that he plays well.

He was really bad for Texas this season, can't imagine him doing much better for Canucks.

Did the Oilers really pay this guy $2.2mil last season? If so, that's pitiful. Barker is not an everyday NHL player.
and we got our heads handed to us on this board when we signed him and was warned--most of us ignored it and fought the good fight about a fresh start and getting good minutes

man were we wrong when we signed him

It may be a poor signing, but how is this at all reflective of Vancouver's past signings? Last season they signed Alex Sulzer as their 8th defenseman and he ended up playing well and earning a one-way deal in Buffalo's top 6. They've also signed Hamhuis, Burrows, Garrison, Malhotra and acquired Luongo, Ballard, Ehrhoff, Higgins, Booth and Lapierre who've all become productive members of the Canucks and other franchises in recent years.

They have quite the high opinion of themselves if they believe that.

Glad to see Eddy fans admitting that they were wrong about Barker.

Does this mean we can be friends now?

How did Barker look at the Spengler Cup?

11 pages. So no, it's not Canucks fans being hated. It's management team being criticized for signing an awful player.
8 pages. Shared thread with darci hordichuk signing. Did you really mistake the 8 for 11 or did you not think anyone would call you out on it.

What? It's a one year deal. You probably tried to be funny but you failed at it more miserably than Barker does on the ice (didn't know it was possible but apparently it is).

Lol I was making the point that even though it's a one year low risk deal, it's still a horrible deal.

Take a joke.
