I thought this was a neat story. No doubt a thrill for the UBC players to have the pros involved for an extended period.

It must have been a real eye opener for some of the UBC players.

I'm worried about Kesler. I think his career may be a short one due to injuries.

that is kind of what happened to Wendel Clark...he played about 30-40 pounds heavier than he was, and backed down to no one...ever.

interesting factoid...Chuck Norris wears Wendel Clark pyjamas to bed.

There was that nasty rumour years ago that lots of guys were into Wendel's PJs.

Not a good start to the mini-camp. :-(

Clarke was fearless, full of heart and was a tough son of a bitch...often, he wasn't the biggest dog in the fight, but he wouldn't back down from anyone, anywhere, any time.

while not as "famous", PJ Stock was another great tough guy...always the smallest guy in the fight (5'10" and 190 lbs), but not afraid to throw them against anyone.

Booth is out 4 to 6 weeks.......looks like some of the younger guys may stick around.

I really hope Schroeder makes it..........I want to see what he can do.

stock was a great fighter...always the smaller sized guy...and really, he likely "lost" or "tied" a lot of fights, but he was almost always giving up 4-5 inches in height (and some reach) and 30-50 pounds...i mean, at 5'10, he is likely smaller than most of us in here...he was forced to retire when he broke his orbital bone in fight though.

his last year in junior:

Games played: 67
Goals: 19
Assists: 42
Points: 62
PIM: 432

So Luongo is playing better in camp than Schneider.

Oh well.....2 NHL quality keepers playing for the Canucks.

Realistically, he's a better goalie than Schneider, but less consistent (particularly in the post-season). So I'm not surprised that he's playing well. I'm also not sad to see him go, if that's the ultimate outcome.

I'm starting to wonder about even trading him now...........we've got no viable backup,unless another goalie is part of the trade.

Sure wouldn't hurt to keep them both to see how it goes for the 1st 2 weeks of the season.

Did you hear Gillis this morning? When asked "on a scale of 1 to 10
with 10 being imminent trade where do you stand?"

Gillis said "Much closer to 1 than 10!" So Luongo could be here a
while.

I was watching the Chicago Wolves play Abbotsford last weekend.
Chicago's keeper was Matt Climie while Lack is out hurt. He looked
pretty good. I don't see him on the Canucks' depth chart yet he had
a Canucks logo on his helmet. Is he Canucks' property???

I believe he is. He signed with the Canucks as a free agent after a couple of years in the Phoenix and Stars organizations. He was undrafted in junior, played in US college, and signed as a UFA out of college. He's 29.

Ya I watched that game too..........Climie was great in that game.

I seem to remember hearing that name in games before...at 29,he's no kid but if he can continue to play like that,Lack and him could be great backups.

The Canucks have locked up another piece to their blueline, signing Alex Edler to a six-year, $30 million contract extension.

»www.theprovince.com/sports/hocke···ory.html

All the current top four locked up until 2016.

Now you have to wonder about Ballard... buyout maybe? Wait until we see how Garrison meshes with the current group? Could Garrison be another Ballard, full of potential that never gets reached?
