so I gotta ask - do you still hate Sundin, want him to "**** off" and don't want him to sign in Vancouver?

We've got the complete line-up. No real weaknesses and I think we got a great chance to win a cup. I can't believe this is actually happening.
Need Mason Raymond to mature with Sundin as his center... I agree with everything though... I just gained huge faith in Gillis and the team!!

Yes, that would have been stupid, but only because that wouldn't upgrade the team in anyway whatsoever.

I hope it works out better than that for you 'Nucks fans.
Hope he delivers. Hope he defers to Luongo's leadership and just plays to the best of his abilities.

Barry just said the first game won't be the 28th. He'll be joining the team on the 27th and they'll be able to see when it makes sense to get him into the lineup.

i was actually pretty suprised about this because Fan 590 reported it was a done deal with NY a few days ago... but still congrats to vancouver for the deal i think it improves their team... i DO believe mats would have had a better chance to win with NY tho... in any event congrats vancouver and congrats Mats

Congrats canucks from a dallas fan...

Now you guys are a genuine threat to be a dangerous playoff team...any team can go deep with luongo IMO

you should go hard after bouwmeester...any chance of chasing him??

could a canucks fan post some lines if this hypothetically could happen....

I'll answer that question.

I'm not ecstatic like so many others, because I still have a thing against getting strung along for months on end. I won't change my opinion until he brings a significant contribution onto the ice.

man, this is gonna be great.

Sundin and Luongo are gonna be fresh compared to other teams for the playoff run.
Even with this break with Luongo, the Canucks are holding on well....I am very impressed.

I was just joking with a friend that he should demand to wear the number 12/16, and that he won't play until he gets his demand.

I know, I'm such a riot.

It wont be long.... I still say theres a chance he plays on the 28th. The 30th might be possible.
