Debrusk, Heinen, Sherwood, Forbert,.. Nice haul by Canucks on free agent frenzy day. Do not think they overpaid on anybody, unlike some of the other teams . I believe Tocchet will get the most out of those guys, and those 3 forwards already have good speed. I'd give the Canucks an A for today's signings, makes up for all the picks/prospects that they gave up for Lindholm and Zadorov.

It's like a revolving door 🚪 let's see how we do with these guy's. To me it's like how will they jell as a team. Last year it worked out awesome they entertained me during an El Nino winter. I'll be skeptical this season however this year we have La Nina to keep me entertained. :clap: :thumbup:

In my opinion, he is underrated by many and therefore, I don't think giving him a 6/6 deal would have been overpaying. You need a guy like him in the playoffs. The Canucks may take a step back next season if they can't replace him. That said, I don't know what management has planned come free agency, so maybe it will all work out for the best. Time will tell. :thumbup:
You are 100 percent right. He's a great player; we should have kept him.

I think Zadorov disappears for parts of the regular season, maybe that's why most have him slotted as a 5/6 defenceman. Those defensemen can usually be had for under $3M per. Not really thrilled with Petey's contract either, but he definitely needs better offensive players to play with as Sardineman alluded to.
I disagree. Zadorov is the playoff player you need. Some players excel in those environments. You guys have ghosts thinking everyone is an overpayment due to OEL.

You are most likely correct. However it sucks seeing a fan favourite walk no matter how much it makes sense. :(

Agreed. Zadorov is highly underrated in my opinion. Personally, I think the Canucks should have given him the term he wanted. He signed for 5 million 6 years with the Bruins. I don't see why the Canucks wouldn't match that. He's not a guy that's easily replaceable. If the term is the issue, why did we sign Myers for 3 years at 34 years old? Zadorov will still be younger after his 6 year term expires in Boston. Makes no sense at all. :roll: :?

Most analysts consider Zadorov to be a 3rd pairing D-man, and I presume so does the Canucks coaching staff with Hughes and Soucy rated ahead of him on the left side, so management would be out of theirs minds to fork out that kind of dough/term for a 3rd pairing. Having said that it might've been a different story if he was a right shot D-man, as they seem to be alot more valuable. 3 D, Myers/Forbert/Desharnais at $6.5M per vs 1D at $5M per with longer term is not bad at all. Don't forget Canucks will get dinged alot higher in the next few years for the OEL buyout, I think something like $4M each year. Would I have liked to see Zadorov stay? Of course.

Yes, not a soccer guy but it did seem fairly entertaining ,as I find the sport boring for the most part, and that Portugal/France sure was . I thought if it went to a shootout we'd lose. Should've had 3 or 4 goals in regulation, maybe too many Mikheyevs,not enough Boesers.

It was highly entertaining compared to the average match. Argentina will be a different beast but it should still be highly entertaining and relatively offensive.
