But seriously, best FO man? Thats David Steckel.
Over the last 5 years:

Steckel won 2811 of 4790, or 58.68%
Malhotra won 3213 of 5379, or 59.73%

I don't think you could go wrong with either, and they're both pretty clearly top-5 (top-2?) in the league..

I'd be willing to give him a 900K deal. That's the limit for AHL players who don't count against the cap so if by chance we have a better player who is younger and cheaper sure I'd still keep him in the organization. Like most said he is a good bet as being offered a coaching position most likely. He's well liked in the room and is relied heavily upon when in the lineup.
Most of the days he doesn't practice are personal or maintenance days. Didn't the guy just have another kid? Personal reasons as a vet could also mean he didn't feel like going to practice.

We paid over a million for Ryan Johnson as a faceoff guy, there are plenty of older guys around the league that are useful in bottom 6/4th line roles.

Manny will take less and will be re-signed, he is still a very serviceable 4th liner, and won't command much cash.
Pretty sure we paid him that to see him preform the most awkward shot blocks

I completely disagree. If he can be re-signed to a sub 1M contract, he is worth that.

AV uses his checking line (eg. Malhotra-Lapierre-Weise/Volpatti) primarily on defensive zone draws. Their entire object is to take possession of the puck, move it into the offensive zone and either change on the fly or take a shot to try and force an offensive zone face-off that allows the Sedins another O-zone start. Malhotra is one of the top-5 (if not the best) face-off winner in the league. He has not lost that, and if the checking line gains possession of the puck more than half the time, they are significantly more effective.

Something is up with Manny. He's missed a couple of games this season for no apparent reason. Speculation is that it's his eye.

If that is the case, I don't think he will sign another NHL contract. May call it a career after this season. Been almost 2 years since the freak accident.

Not really.
The first game he missed was because he had another kid.
As for tonight, who knows. Maybe injury or just AV mixing things up with Ebbett instead.

Sounds like the amount of respect he has earned from the organization/teammates they will do whatever they can to keep him around. Say what you will about running a hockey team by the numbers but team morale is worth something. It may not be something that you can quantify or the score/balance sheet at the end of the year, but it can make all the difference in the success of a franchise. He isn't the player he was before the injury, and I'm afraid to say that I don't think he will ever be, but I would love to see him get an assistant coaching job at the end of his current contract.

With his ungodly offensive hockey IQ he could probably coach circles around Newell Brown setting up the PP.



But seriously, he probably could.

I have no qualms about him joining the coaching staff mentioned that earlier but the reports of his value on the ice & in the lockeroom are imo overblown--he's not earning his salary now & 900k is an overpayment.He has been a very good player for the Canucks & has been well compensated for it.When his current contract expires it's time to part ways at least on the ice.Oh ya from the other thread lets bring back torres Canuck fans & their man crushes on role players what gives

That's a big if right there--it's a nice theory anyway.--by the time he signs his next contract & starts to play he'll be headed towards 34 years old 900k-1million for an aging 4th line FO specialist in a year when the cap is cap is going down to 64,300,000 & proj cap space $3,896,667 & only 14 players under contract next year.I know the situation will change with Luongo being moved but still
I just don't see room for Manny.

A 2.5 mil 4th liner has little to no value. No more than a 5th at best.

Even if the guy is the best at faceoffs, a leader and is a cool guy.

We are pretty confident he will resign for less, for 1 mill he would be worth it

You know the canucks have 14 players under contract for about 60 mill right?I think without some really creative cap moves there really isn't going to be room for such a luxury.

he's brother in law of Steve Nash, he most likely isn't going to leave Vancouver any time soon.

Apparently you are completely wrong about this which is why he's on the IR.
Someone in the manny thread on the vancouver forum posted a quote of GMMG saying the decision was made last year & he was given the offseason to train & given 10 games to show he could still be effective on the ice.But now he is on the hockey equivalent of footballs PUP LIST.There are alot of sports fans (not just canuck fans)that get sentimental about vet players at the end of their careers I want them to continue even after it's pretty clear they shouldn't.

Hopefully Malholtra will be in mgmt somewhere next year.

Prior to the injury he was a very good 3rd liner-he was never really a good 4th liner.
