Hmmm...interesting turn of events. I can honestly say I really didn't see this coming.{although I desired this].

Crow's a good coach,he'll get a job no problem....and I give him and Burke props for leading us out of the Messier/Keenan wilderness years. But I think it was pretty obvious something was not right this last year. Crow's inability to really hold his players accountable was ridiculous. It was like everyone got a free ride this year{except Morrison..his whipping boy].

Just once this year I wanted to see him come out after a game and really let the team have it....but it was always the same shit..."I think we had our chances"...."we need to work a little harder in maintaining our lead"....."I think we did some positive things that we can really build on"....blah blah blah. How can the players respect that? Christ,my grandmother could have scared the Nucks into playing better, more than Crow did!

That said,not all his fault by any means...the team has a lot to answer for as well.

So...who's going to be the next coach? Watch it be Quinn!

Big trade....

Quote
TSN.ca Staff

6/23/2006 10:34:04 PM

The Vancouver Canucks and Florida Panthers have completed a multi-player trade involving some big names on the eve of the NHL Draft.

The Panthers have confirmed that they acquired Todd Bertuzzi, Bryan Allen and Alexander Auld from the Canucks in exchange for Roberto Luongo and Lukas Krajicek and a 2006 sixth round pick.

Luongo is a restricted free agent, and the Panthers had been unable to work out a long-term deal with the star netminder.  The Miami Herald reported on Tuesday that Panthers general manager Mike Keenan said that the team would explore all options when it came to Luongo.

On Friday night, Keenan pulled the trigger on a mega-deal with the Canucks.

"This is a trade that addresses a number of needs for our hockey club," Keenan said. "We’ve added an experienced and talented forward, a skilled goaltender and a strong defenceman that we expect to help our team immediately."

 

Following his suspension for attacking Colorado's Steve Moore near the end of the 2004 regular season, Bertuzzi had 25 goals and 71 points last season.  That was a significant drop from his best season in 2002-2003, when he scored 46 goals and 51 assists.

With the Moore incident still resonating, Bertuzzi took a lot of heat in Vancouver last season as the team failed to make the playoffs.

Before news of the deal broke, Canucks GM Dave Nonis made no bones about the fact that he was shopping his assests, including the 31-year-old Bertuzzi.

"He's in the same spot as everyone else, but the media loves to focus on one player," said Nonis of Bertuzzi. "We have a group of players that as a group underachieved which means the majority of those players are available."

The Canucks are hoping that Luongo, 27, is the answer to their goaltending concerns. He  had a 2.97 goals-against average and .914 save percentage last season and has emerged as one of Canada's future stars in international play.

Still, the Panthers finished 11th in the Eastern Conference last season and never made the playoffs during Luongo's five seasons with the team.

The problem of signing him to a long-term deal now rests with Nonis.

Krajicek, 23, has star potential, too.  The former first rounder had 2 goals and 16 points in 67 games last season, but his smooth skating and play-making ability suggest bigger numbers could be on the way.

"We believe that in Roberto we are getting a player who has represented his country at the highest level, has been nominated for the Vezina Trophy and has proven that he is among the elite goaltenders in the world," said Nonis. "Lukas is a young, skilled, puck-moving defenceman who has a very bright future in this League."

Auld, 25, played well in place of injured starter Dan Cloutier last season, but the Canucks obviously felt he was not the answer. As of now, he will be battling Jamie McLennan for the number one job in Florida.

That represents a big drop-off for the Panthers, unless they find another goaltender in free agency starting July 1.

Allen, 25, is another former first rounder, though he has not quite lived up to the potential that made him the fourth overall pick in 1998. At 6-4 and 220 pounds, he has size and strength, but does not have the offensive upside of a potential powerplay quarterback like Krajicek.

Still, Allen contributed 7 goals and 17 points in 77 games last season and was also a +4.

Bye bye Bert........

The Vancouver Canucks have agreed to terms with unrestricted free-agent centre Marc Chouinard to a $2.2-million US, two-year deal, a source confirmed to The Canadian Press on Monday.

The deal will be officially announced either later Monday or possibly not until Tuesday.

The 29-year-old centre had a career-high 14 goals and 16 assists in 74 games with the Minnesota Wild last season and is a solid, two-way player. Chouinard will earn $1.1 million a season.

A good face off guy...meh..it's not an RW....

hmm.....I think there's some kind of trade in the works...

ha ha..no...but I sure would love to be a GM. That would be an awesome job. :D

We have now Morrison,Henrik,Kessler and Cooke at center,with Chiounard that makes 5 for the starting Roster. I'm thinking that one of our C is being shipped...hopefully for a solid RW or 2.
Or free up some cash to get Anson in under the cap?

My Boss is a Canucks fan, I am a Bruins fan...Sadly we are the only two hockey fans in our department. We've started trash talking each other two days after I got hired...I can't imagine the shit that will hit the fan when this season starts...

all my in-laws are fucking Leafs fans....I made my brother-in-law nearly cry the day I got his daughter to put on my Bruins jersey, and give the #1 finger to the camera....I e-mailed the picture to him at work. The puss nearly cried seeing his daughter wear a jersey that wasn't the Leafs jersey, he even threatened to ground her for it, until the wife stepped in and cracked the whip on his candy ass.
