I agree on Torres. Still don't understand why we let him walk.

Kinda feel like the primary appeal of Torres' game has been blunted by the head-hunting rules. Not that I enjoyed watching him fly around like a heat seeking missile concussing people, but that was his game in a nutshell. He'd keep you on your toes every shift because you never knew when he'd go full Cooke.

Now he's just a 5 minute major/20 game suspension waiting to happen. He's a 3rd/4th line tweener, talent-wise. We've got a flotilla of those.

From what I remember the canucks offered a similar contract but Torres wanted a bigger role than the 4th line gig he would've started the following season on. The reason he played on the 3rd line in the playoffs was due to injury to Samuelsson which pushed Higgins and Torres up a line respectively. Phoenix had much less depth on the wing and offered a bigger role with more icetime.

He's still one of the better body checkers in the league that can score 15-20 a year, no....we don't have a plethora of those on the roster.

Some consistent offense would be nice, from anyone not named Sedin.

Or tonight.

We've been coasting on great goaltending all through this win streak, as soon as our goaltending goes, we have no chance due to our lack of scoring.

It's all down hill from here.

est. 2012 Vancouver Canucks



As someone stated a couple pages back, here is to a strong 2nd and 3rd. Hopefully some trades before the deadline as well we need some troops!

But seriously if Gillis does nothing he is admitting that the Canucks window is over. And I don't think he believes that. So I expect deals to be made.

I believe he's arrogant enough to believe the window is still open, but nothing major or even noteworthy needs to be done..

I hope we stand still. I don't think we can beat Chicago or the ducks this year. I would rather save assets and move Raymond and ballard for draft picks and retool in the offseason. I just don't think kesler will be at full bore come playoffs and we can't seem to score. If we do get a difference maker it will cost a fortune.
