Another In-depth Canucks Trade Analysis

In this interests of keeping my Vancouverite friends living abroad apprised of the goings on of my beloved Canucks in the off season, I give you the Canucks's newest hotties:


Ryan Shannon


This tasty morsel was picked up from the Anahiem Ducks as in exchange for Jason King and a conditional draft pick. He's a centre, like me. And he's 23, which happens to be my favourite age.

Jimmy Sharrow


This cutie was picked up in exchange for a cutie who was previously mentioned here in my corner of the blogosphere, Jesse Schultz. Jesse didn't, however, appear to play much when he was called up and I assume he got sent back down to the Moose shortly thereafter. Hopefully Jimmy can do a little bit more than that next season.

Draft Picks

Patrick White (picked 25th overall) & Taylor Ellington (picked 33rd overall)

When I first heard that we picked up another Taylor, my first thought was "Taylor sandwich! With a Dr. Beth filling!" But, alas, then I saw the pics. Now, I'm probably going to lose my cougar card for saying this - but Pat & Taylor look a wee bit too young for my liking. Maybe they just need a few years on the Moose to, um, develop. You know, time to fill out and work on their skills.

In the meantime, there is always Ryan and Jimmy....

Thanks for the update--us Canucks fans stranded in Malta appreciate it. I doubt the Canucks will be very active in the free agency market as of July 1, but you never know, they might pick up a hottie or two. Of course, they'll be veteran players, so they're likelier to be a bit, uh, road-worn.
