February 28/12 - Nucks at Yotes

I am going to be in Arizona on vacation and by a stroke of luck, the Canucks have had their February 13, 2012 game against the Coyotes rescheduled to February 28, 2012. I know that various people...

Red Sox to Interview Torey Lovullo

Huh. Does this mean the staff won't be intact for next year afterall?

Bautista: $10.5MM or $7.6MM, Frasor $3.725MM or $3.25MM

20

Interesting. Surprised that Frasor and the Jays couldn't get it done. Not too surprised we didn't see a resolution with Bautista if that's the gap.

Rasmus for Bautista?

Hi all, Some of you guys might remember me from this post.  I ended up sticking with the Jays, thanks to the new direction the ownership and management was showing.  But I've still held some...

There’s a management refrain about how it’s better to deliver on low expectations than fall short of high expectations. Canucks GM Mike Gillis isn’t a subscriber. Asked if Stanley-Cup-or-bust was a fair expectation for the 2010-11 Canucks, Gillis said: "I think we’re one of four or five teams that are considered to be capable of winning the Stanley Cup." "I think our team is really deep in every area, and I don’t think we have a glaring weakness that needs to be addressed," he continued. "But injuries and different things can change that."

Bosh: "I played with people's emotions"

How many more times can he do this and not expect backlash? Seems like this could easily be the last straw that breaks the camel's back. EDIT: Here's the story from the New York Daily News.

The Case For Paul Kariya

I hinted at this a few times in various comment threads recently, but after FTR went and profiled him, I thought it was time for a fanpost. Paul Kariya, a native son to our Vancouver Canucks, is...

Keane "Released" By Moose, Expected To Retire

13

And by "released" they mean "not offered a contract". Bit of a surprise? I assume he's headed somewhere else in the organization? Update: Keane is expected to retire.

Rob Niedermayer to Buffalo

+

Apparently a $1m/1yr deal. Good deal for our expansion brother.

Jussi Jokinen for Marc Staal?

+

I can't possibly understand why Sather would do this. But it's an interesting read. If there is any chance that Sather would be considering anything along these lines, I hope Gillis is on the phone asap, because I'd give up a lot more than Jussi Jokinen and scraps for Marc Staal, that's for sure.

Scott Niedermayer to retire

6

Guess this deletes another potential option for the defence, although I never really saw much chance of it happening anyways.

Kaberle Available

71

From the Toronto Sports Network. I hope Gillis is one of those guys. I'd give up the 1st rounder in a heartbeat, not sure what else it would take. For the sake of presenting an option, how's about Bieksa/Hansen's rights/1st for Kaberle? Is that enough?

"I've been having a lot of sleepless nights," sighed the gritty centre. "I wasn't there for my team when they needed it. "I'd like to think I've become a big part of this team. When I'm not playing on top of my game, it's going to hurt the team's success."

http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/2010/05/13/kesler_canucks/ Kesler gets it. Oh captain, my captain. How different to hear a player who accepts responsibility (even if it wasn't completely his responsibility). Certain other players would be wise to follow this lead.

"I can put them out there or not put them out there. At the end of the day, you gotta trust your players that they're going to do the right thing at the right time and make the right plays, take the hits for their teammates, the team and the fans. You trust that they're going to do that, and obviously tonight they didn't."

"I didn't even think they were going to take a look at it," Henrik said. "I thought it was a great goal. Then they went upstairs and it took forever and I was like, 'wow, this is unbelievable.' Sometimes it seems like the guys in Toronto they sit there and make their calls anyway they want. This is the playoffs. They had to over-rule it, too, that's the toughest part. If the refs said no or it's questionable, that's fine. He said it was a good goal. It's awful."

http://communities.canada.com/VANCOUVERSUN/blogs/nuckworld/archive/2010/04/20/nhl-apologist-defends-the-indefensible.aspx Henrik nails it. And that's the last I'm going to say about it.

Bronco Fans: No Dez Bryant

3

There's some good stuff there. Those of us that are thinking we want Bryant might want to take a look at that before we totally make up our minds.

Mitchell's Replacement?

4

Not sure if Washington would ever let him go, but they had some difficulty coming to an agreement last year. He's developing into a similar game as Mitchell, and would probably be able to be signed for a similar deal that Mitchell signed last time. Just a thought. And a native Vancity boy to boot.

Eyes On The Prize

"It’s tough to say," Henrik said when asked if this is the best team he’s played on. "I want to say so, but [not] until we show it the playoffs. We have a team that can go deep. Now, it’s up to us to show it." Darn right, Hank. Good to see the boys get it.

Flames sign Stajan for 4 years @ 3.5 million PER

All I can say is "wow". How much is Kesler worth if Stajan is a 3.5 million dollar player? I would be absolutely livid if I was Flames fan right now.
