LINE COMBO'S FOR THE CANUCKS

As it looks now, barring a big trade, the Canucks will be heading into the season with a number of questions marks in key positions, notably on the top two lines. How many Moose will be in the starting lineup?? Will Linden be back??

Here's my bold Forward line predictions:

Naslund-Morrison-Cooke

Sedin-Sedin-King

Pyatt-Chouinard-Schultz

Burrows-Reid-Linden

Wheres Kesler you ask?? I'm thinking traded along with Noronen for a top line RW, which of course would change my line up.

Are you thinking Flaherty will be our back-up goalie?

On second thought, why the hell do we even need a back-up?

If I'm Garth Snow, throw in Linden with Noronen and Kesler and I'll send you Satan, Asham and York. do we have a deal?

Wait a minute..I've just been fired and replaced with Rejean Houle. Nevermind!

I'm thinking Dustin Slade's gonna make the team.


Goaltender Dustin Slade has confirmed he has accepted a try-out offer to attend Vancouver Canucks training camp in Vernon, B.C. The 20 year-old from Penticton, B.C. is coming off his best-ever season in the WHL, finishing with franchise regular season highs in wins (36), shut-outs (11), and goals against average (1.90). Named to the Western Conference First All-Star Team, Slade went 16-2 in the playoffs, collecting six shut-outs along the way.

RC, yep, I'd agree to that deal! Linden's a bum though, are you sure you want him?

Bite your tongue Zanstorm, Linden should be the captain for christ sakes. The Nuks need a leader who's not foreign. Look at Stevie Yzerman, he barely played and was still the MAN!!!!

Yeah, good point, Beaner. Except Yzerman has 3 Cups and scored a shitload more points = better skills.
But Linden is better choice for captain than Naslund. But would he accept it?

I think all of you have way too much damned time on your hands.

Zherdev may go back to Russia next year, instead of signing a short-trem deal with the Jackets.

Good riddance to bad rubbish, I say.

Hey how about you come here and clean out our air conditioners? It's too warm here in front of my monitor!

Hey Temujin, Zherdev is bad rubbish, but he sure plays well on NHL O6!
He had 27 goals last year, so I'm sure he's looking for a big increase. I think we may need to get used to players returning to Europe.
