Have fun with him Anaheim, he manages to suck even with 1 minute of playing time.
6th D men = O'Brien, Davison, Nycholat, McIver
Even with 1 or 2 going to the Moose, I have a gut feeling O'Brien's league leading PIMS will be on a different team soon enough. I'm undecided on if this is a good move or not, if it get us a puck movign D-Man, then yes it is.
Even if O'Brien gets traded this isn't a precursor. The Canucks were going to have to send someone down to the minors when Nycholat comes back from the IR. They opened up a roster spot without losing risking anyone to waivers. Once Nycholat is back the Canucks will have 13 forwards, 7 defenseman and one that play both on the roster.
I'm shocked that Brown got traded... I thought he would be a canuck for life - or at least as long as Gillis was still GM in Vancouver...
the guy is absolutely useless, but for whatever reason Gillis just refused to give up on him... I'm so glad that he's gone though - he was a detriment to the team because he would never play, and then then when he did, because of sitting in the pressbox for so many games, even the few minutes he played he was completely useless, whether it's rust or just lack of ability.
It's nice to get McIver back.... IMO he's more useful as a depth player, but either way, just getting rid of Brown (FINALLY!) makes this trade a win!
