#Canucks place Volpatti on #NHL waivers.

Something else coming? They don't need the roster space right now.

Huh...that is weird. No sense in getting rid of depth for no reason, and I thought Volpatti had played his role quite well to this point in the year.

It is strange, but I think a move is coming. Blindside man, blindside

The only thing Volpatti does better than Weise is fight, and IMO it's not by much.

Weise must have taken boxing lessons when he was in Tulipland because his skills have vastly improved.

It cannot be to bring up Ebbett can it? Geez that doesn't do anything for us....a bigger move? It is the best time in our season to make a move due to schedule

Volpatti is a horrible hockey player. I can't even count the number of times the 4th line got hemmed in their own zone because of him being unable to receive or make a pass.

I wouldn't go that far. I think they're pretty much a trade off at this stage (Volpatti being the better scrapper, IMO), but Weise has more potential upside.

I hope not...I just don't see the point. They play very different roles, and Ebbett has a far bigger impact in Chicago as a top-line guy than Volpatti will. If he's coming up just to ride the pine in Vancouver, you'd figure that wouldn't sit too well with the Wolves.

Unless there is an injury we haven't heard about yet, I don't know where Ebbett would fit into the lineup. He's not better than any of the forwards the team is now dressing.

On the plus side, does this not indicate Schroeder has made the team for the time being? I would have figured he'd be the first to be sent down if they needed roster space.

If they're making room for a deal, do they need to wait until tomorrow when Volpatti clears or is there a similar exemption as with players coming off IR (where it's enough to waive the player, don't have to wait the 24 hours)?

I don't think Schroeder is going anywhere. That line might not be scoring but they've pretty much dominated possession ever since they took Weise off it.

Trades have started to heat up lately. Maybe VAN adding a roster player for a pick or prospect...a 3C possibly...what's the team contracts situation with respect to to the 50 Max?

This is either forshadowing an Ebbett call up () or a trade (interesting)

Best fighter we have and good at throwing the body, hope he's not getting replaced by Andrew ****ing Ebbett

How many times has he kept Daniel off the ice? "Oh and Henrik passes to Burrows and Volpatti? in on the forecheck?"

Bringing in Jason Arnott perhaps? Saw some tweets this morning about how he's gotten over a "minor injury setback" since failing the NY physical and how his brother Wade was liking giving the Canucks a call or two about it...

He had a habit of taking extremely long shifts. I feel like he's overrated because he gives it his all.
