Sauve to Manitoba

Quote:
Vancouver, B.C. - Vancouver Canucks President and General Manager Mike Gillis announced today that defenceman Yann Sauve has been re-assigned to the Manitoba Moose of the AHL.
Sauve, 21, has appeared in 20 games for the Moose this season, recording 3 points (0-3-3) and 8 penalty minutes in his rookie AHL season. In three games with the Canucks, Sauve recorded six hits, three blocked shots and an even plus/minus rating.

The 63, 220 lbs., native of Montreal, Quebec was drafted in the second round of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft by the Vancouver Canucks.

I think he has a future. So I guess Ballard is back?

99.9% sure this means Ballard is back in tonight. Sauve showed well, I think he has some promise for the future. Nice to see after the horrible fashion in which his season began.

Ballard has to be back then. I was really impressed by Sauve he will be back soon.

I hope not, because that means we're injured again.

Makes for an interesting offseason with Tanev and Sauve both playing well and Bieksa, Errhoff, and Salo becoming UFAs. I wouldn't want to be in Gillis's shoes making decisions like these.

You think they'd keep 7 D for a game or so. Sauve will probably be back by the weekend?

It's a nice situation.

Let's not forget that we have Ryan Parent who is supposedly playing the best of all of the young D on the farm.

I would have no problem going in to next year with a bottom pairing for Tanev and Parent (with Rome continuing as the #7).

Sauve looked promising. Good call up.

Sucks for Sauve, his parents flew to Vancouver to watch him play.

Sauve played as well as could be expected under the situation. I was impressed with his play, not as much as Tanev, but still he was a decent short term fill-in.

it's obvious that Sauve and Hodgson are the same person. Born on the same day, drafted on the same day, but never together in the Canucks' lineup.

This is getting strange. I am not used to any depth in the system. Definitely not your grandfather's or even father's Vancouver Canucks.

Sauve looked pretty good in his short time here.

He has a decent future ahead of him.

Bold Predicition Time: I'm going on record now and saying by the time Polasek gets to this point he'll have been ranked above where Tanev, Sauve, and Sweatt at this point...

Sauve did a great job in mostly sheltered minutes. He's a great skater with size, so that's a lot to like right there.

I think he'll back on the moose next year, first call-up

Edler, Hamhuis, Ballard, and Rome are the vets that are signed through next season.

Erhoff is the top priority to retain. None of the young blueliners can replace the puck moving and offensive skills he brings.

Salo, Bieksa, and Alberts are left.

I would think that the Canucks would want to make sure that they are at least 2-3 deep in terms of AHL callups to ensure that they can withstand injuries next season as well.

So, if they promote both Tanev and Parent up next season, they need to ensure that Sauve, KConn, and someone else (Oberg) can come in and play. Lee Sweatt is a free agent in the summer.

That totally sucks. Reminds me of when Turris had his family come out to a game vs Vancouver, only to be benched by Gretzky.

it's a bit different in that Sauve, in reality, doesn't actually belong in the NHL at this point. he did great all things considered, but he's still not ready for the show.

sure it's only one game, but it's also a home game against a team of smurfs. in other words, the perfect game to work a couple dmen back in off an injury. team success trumps family time. Sauve will just have to wait until he earns spot on the roster, rather than being forced onto it prematurely due to injuries (again, not taking anything away from how he played).

You would have to think this call up and the way he played will do a world of good for Sauve's confidence.

ouch. that kinda blows if true. it's not like he wasn't playing fairly well...should let the Quebec kid play the Habs in front of his family. send him down with an even bigger grin on his face. oh well.


and honestly, i would've been a lot more comfortable if they'd kept him on for another game and phased Hamhuis and Ballard back in one at a time.

but it's hard to complain about getting a pair of top-knotch NHL experienced d-men back. hopefully they're not rushing either of them back at all.
