One Goal

Here’s a great little advertisement from a website promoting hockey for kids.  I thought it was pretty funny:

Another Summer Day, Another Summer Rumour

July 9, 2007

Today, the Canucks signed Bieksa to 3 more years at 3.75m per season and Aaron Miller out of L.A.  I’ll do a writeup on him tomorrow.

But with the backend solidified, there are more rumours that the Canucks are looking to trade for some scoring.  A top 6 player to get the team some well needed goals. 


Early Summer Rumours

Tambellini said it best.  The Canucks have really solidified their 3rd and 4th lines.  They also setup their goaltending tandem for next year and for the farm team.  And they signed their #5 defenseman, leaving them with a need to sign only depth at that position now.

But their most glaring need hasn’t been addressed.  Not yet anyways.


An RFA Leason Learned

July 7, 2007

Last fall, when Bobby Clarke was asked about why he tendered  Ryan Kesler an offer sheet, he went on the offensive and blamed it on Nonis.  Well, first he said he followed the rules as outlined in the CBA, and if you don’t like the rules, call the commissioner.
