Maybe trade him too, if there's a decent offer. We have a lot of great prospects in junior, so I think the Canucks will stay competitive for awhile.
A agree with everything you said. Horvat was stellar in the playoffs. Hopefully another couple prospects pan out and make the team in the next couple of years.

Overall I liked the Canucks' season, at first I wanted them to tank, but once they had a shot at the playoffs, I'm glad they made it.

I like most of what Benning did, and I love the Vrbata signing, but Dorset got paid waaay too much, I would have much preferred them signing Matthias, who has a much larger upside than Dorset, hopefully they can fit him in, its nice that Matthias can play both wing and centre. I would have preferred Richardson over Dorset as well.

Also, Sbisa, with his big new contract extension, was just terrible. Don't know why they even bothered signing him. Sbisa's Bakery was serving up hot apple turnovers all series.

Weber was bad too, he has a big shot, but that's the only thing about his game I really like.

The Canucks need to improve the back end a great deal if they have any shot at going deep in the playoffs next year.

Miller may not have been 100% but those rebounds he was giving out last night were tragic.

The Canucks were so out-coached it's not even funny. The management and coaching team is absolutely atrocious.

Canucks should go through a re-building phase. Trade the Sedins for some valuable future assets and give them the chance to actually win a cup. Get rid of Casual Kev. Buyout Sbisa (because there is no chance in hell anyone would pick him up), he's statistically the worst defenceman in the league.

I happened to get free tickets from work, so we went to see Anaheim take home points from Vancouver last night.





Go Canucks Go!



Teams entering ice.











Can't complain. These were great seats.





And Anaheim scores, again.

Tickets can be had for pretty cheap these days. Need a couple more years of high draft picks before we'll have another chance to run wild in the streets...

Great pics as always Klaus!

Good time to get in on season tickets if you want to make that investment.

Small world. Too bad I didn't take a selfie to capture you!

Were you also bothered by the loud man and woman on row 6 talking constantly about anything but the game? I have no idea why they were there, paying no attention to the game...
