jovanovski?

Hi guys new here if this has been discussed sorry but i have been wondering if we cant resign hoff should we go after jovocop and if so how much. I was thinking a 2 year deal at 2.5-3mil a year would be a good deal.

What are your guys thoughts

I love to have Ed Jovonaski back in our team, but he gets injured too easily and we have enough players who missed a lot of time due to that.

Would love him back... if you've never seen a grown man cry you would the first time Eddy steps back into a Canucks uniform. He'd be like Messier returning to NY.

Ed Jovanovski made me yell at my television screen a lot.

Sometimes it was because he did something awesome (ie. big hit, goal, etc) and other times because he did something unbelievably stupid (ie. tape to tape giveaway in the defensive zone).

He's one of my all-time favourite Canucks and I'd love to see him back here, but realistically I'm not sure that he fits in unless we move Ballard, which I don't foresee. I think we will sign Ehrhoff and if not I think Gillis will be looking for someone around his age or younger. Jovanovski needs a steady partner and with his age and injury history I don't think he'd be a good replacement for Ehrhoff. He'd be a replacement for Ballard if we were going to go that route.

Would love to see Jovo back in town. I think Ballard would have to move in order for it to happen though. Jovo isn't the same player he was when he left so I don't think he'd be able to replace Ehrhoff's offence but I still think he could contribute to the team in a reduced role as a 3rd pairing guy, perhaps with Tanev or Salo.

The only way this would conceivably be an option is if Bieksa bolted the team for more lucra somewhere else and you had Hamhuis sitting there waiting for a high-risk, high-reward partner. Otherwise the only way this is even feasible is if everyone came back and you moved Ballard and Jovo signed for like 2 million to play with Salo and try and win a cup.

Chances of that? 1%. Still, Jovo/Salo would be a fun, if fragile, bottom pair to watch.

He plays the left side. Whoever replaces Ehrhoff, should he even need replacing, will have to play on the right side. Salo can do that, but only for part of the season.

I wouldn't mind Jovo back but the player this team really needs to go after is Pitkanen. Especially if Ehrhoff is walking.

If he was willing to come in at a reduced price and willing to accept a reduced role, I'd take a long look at it. I don't really see Gillis going in that direction, though. He's probably thinking younger and hopefully more durable.

One of my all-time favourite Canucks, but looking at this from a business end of things, no I don't want him. His career is wrapping up and as has been mentioned already, he seems to get injured a lot.

Hate saying that 'cause I love the guy, but I'm thinking team first.

I'd take him back if he came cheap (as in $2M) but not a dime more than that. He still comes to Vancouver (was at UFC 131) and loves the city. If he's serious about winning a cup before he retires he may take a huge cut in pay to come back here perhaps?

In all honesty though, I expect he'll end up in Detroit or Carolina.

His game has eroded badly and I don't think he is a fit any more.

I don't think Jovo is the sort of guy who would take less money to play anywhere, which more or less eliminates the Canucks from contention to get him back. That, coupled with his declining skills means I'd pass.

I'd like to have Jovo back, but he doesn't provide what this team needs.

He's actually played both sides regularly throughout his career.

He still makes the same mistakes he always has, but his two biggest assets his happy skating legs that allowed him to recover from gaffes, and his physical game have disappeared.

No interest whatsoever.

Gillis should sign Salo and Jovo to identical deals, then they can leap-frog each other on and off LTIR. It would be like getting one durable dman.
