no to schieder and Jay Bo, Bo is gonna command at least 6 mill and I dont think he has the heart to win.
I want Beauchamin.
Oh. I wouldn't know. I can't recall ever catching more than a few seconds of a Florida Panther game. Schneider I know little about.
But liking the Canucks and having watched them often, I do know Ohlund has something to offer, and has the heart to win. Beauchamin I will admit is probably better though.
we have no shot at bouwmeester unless we trade either of our big 3. hands down i'll take beauchamin plus its a huge plus to get him outta damn anaheim. its kinda hard to say bo doesnt have the heart to win dude has been playing with a horrible panthers team his whole career up to this yr where they were decent and sniffing the playoffs. honestly i would be happy if we got him but of course wont, he'll go to whoever pays him the most, oilers would be a good fit probably. hes from edmonton and they were gonna throw lots of money to hossa this past off season
I just don't think we enough guys like Murray and Boyle on D. We need way more speed. Erhoff and Boyle are the only fast guys.
Boyle is the skilled skater with a good stick and great speed.
Murray, aka "Crankshaft," is the heavy hitter who knocks teeth out but generally superbly positions himself on the ice on D. He's a smart defender.
Vlasic is balanced, but still getting better. Not really a heavy hitter though.
Erhoff has decent speed -- but his shot, while hard, isn't particularly accurate.
Lukowich -- Mediocre. Not a great shot. Not a great stick really. Seems to get caught out of position too often. Not exactly a great passer either. Come to think of it.. Brad sucks.
Semenov -- Omgah. Penalties, penalties, penalties ALL the time. Slow. Can hit, and fights occasionally, and not a terrible shot but.. still easily upgraded over.
Blake -- About to be 40. What does he have left? Only Vlasic was worse than him in +/- in the playoffs.
Huskins - going to be a FA, but from what I see, he looks like a promising kid. *shrug* -- Doesn't seem to be someone scared to drop the gloves. From what I know, he's an underrated defenseman.
I guess at some point, when we feel Joslin's ready, we should bring him up and perhaps have our 8 defensemen being: Boyle, Murray, Vlasic, Huskins, Joslin, [new player], [new player], [new player].
