Well...I guess GMPA didn't want to listen to me and keep this team together.
I guess this is the team we never expected and it nows seems to be the shot we have dreamed about since 2011.
No pressure there.
Calgary has done well to get rid of salary and gather up draft picks from the Canucks this year. The team is a hot mess. Does this mean we are the Vancouver Flames now?
Lindholm is the top six piece that hopefully can increase his offensive numbers while providing the defensive play that has made him a consistent mention for the Selke. It will be interesting to see where Taco slots him in. He can play center or wing and kills penalties and slots into the PP.
His price tag is great....unless you include the fact he cost 2 defensive prospects and a 1st rounder....oh and maybe a 4th.
I guess we need to shift gears around here and start thinking about this team as Stanley Cup contender.
I might need a moment to let that sink in.
The next homestand might be a very tough one for the Canucks.
