The Canucks have been said to show interest in Jay Bo, and they're committed to $30+ million in contracts for next season... I would absolutely be thrilled to get one of those sweedish hockey hunks down here! They took Luongo from us, now it's time for us to come up!
Ps, I'm a noob, this is my first post. Hello to everyone!
I know it's unlikely, but i'm hoping J Bo will show some character, who knows maybe if he doesn't go through with a S&T other GM's will think he's got no loyalty, and will be stigmatized hah. I know we haven't been to the playoffs, but we had a nice run this year. I've seen it mentioned around, and agree 100%, that we need a playmaker. While I certainly miss the Russian Rocket (Bure) I feel Frolik may be able to step into his skates. We've a young, promising team, but we need a proven scorer, which will open things up for everyone else. If we could get the Sedin twins, i really feel we would be contender's for the cup next season.
Absolutely we can contend with them, but I don't see it happening. I will hope J Bo shows some of that loyalty. We absolutely need a scorer. We had like 1 30 goal scorer last year and it took Booth the whole year. That is atrocious for one team. We need to possibly even sign at least one of the Sedin twins or bring in a 40 goal plus scorer.
It is extremely sad that we only had one player with 30 goals, and while i do like Booth, I feel guys like Weiss and Horton should be the ones putting up these numbers. I'm hoping Frolik has a good year, and I'm convinced he will.
