    So I have been looking around lately and I have heard that Steve Pinizotto might be activated tomorrow (Thursday). If he can't make it I guess he will play on Saturday with the millionaires jersey!

    "@JamiesonCanucks: #Canucks to activate agitator Steve Pinnizzotto on Thursday. It's been a long time coming.

    Possible lines?

    Sedin-Sedin-Burrows
    Booth-Higgins-Kassian
    Raymond-Lapierre-Hansen
    Sestito-Pinizotto-Weise

    Hamhuis-Garrison
    Tanev-Edler
    Ballard-Barker

    Luongo I hope.

    My guess would be that Sestito sits and Ebbett plays.

    Well Pinizotto is a Center so might as well get Pinizotto to replace him. Also Lapierre isn't that bad at faceoffs and is good on the PK. Just gives away the puck sometimes which I hope be can bounce back from. Here is a fight by Pinizotto. I have trouble linking videos I have to figure it out.

    The guy really deserves the chance. I can't wait. He was like an AHL version of Burrows for the Wolves, and every time we saw him in training camp/preseason, he was one of the best players on the ice.

    I'm expecting him to be an upgrade on Weise/Sestito moving forward. just hope he stays healthy.

    You know what's really sad? The number of 4th line centers this team has had ... and yet there is almost no time that they were played for a decent amount of time for a decent stretch of games. I hope Pinnizotto does well out of general principle but I'm not holding my breath.

    Shouldn't be hasty to judge Pinner in his first few games up. Longterm injury and all that. Would be prudent to give him a little while to hit his stride before providing any kind of evaluation.

    Hopefully he doesn't hurt himself and plays a controlled game.

    For a shift disturber, he seems awfully brittle.

    Hopefully he plays RW on Lappys line. Sit Weise and keep Sestito in, chances are Pinni's actions cause some ruckus.

    He isn't a centre.

    WOWWWWWWW. Ok, he's a winger? Man, who freaking cares then? We're going to get a huge lift out of someone who's probably slightly better than Weise?

    Watch as AV grinds our whole team into the ground by playing three lines for the rest of the compressed schedule.

    I really do not know why everyone seems to be so high on this guy.

    Like a previous poster said, he's looked in the preseason games we've seen him in.
     
  16. Could someone explain why he is all of a sudden available on thursday march 14, half way through a broken season?

    Don't quote me on this, but I'm pretty sure he was injured, then they let him play in the AHL for a bit to get back up to speed.

    Now he's good to go. Hopefully we see him Thursday.

    How about

    D. Sedin - H. Sedin - Burrows
    Booth - Kesler - Kassian
    Raymond - Schroeder - Jensen
    Higgins - Lapierre - Hansen
    Pinizzotto
    Sestito
    Weise

    :naughty:


    Burrows and Jensen would be interchangeable, I suppose. I'm guessing Jensen will get a chance with the Sedins. I'd keep Booth/Kassian and Higgins/Hansen together as they seem to be developing chemistry.

    As long as he doesn't hit Douglas Murray he will be fine.

    Was injured, then reactivated and given a two week conditioning stint.

    Stint is now over.

    They're not going to play with Sedin and Ebbet as the only two centres in the lineup.

    Pretty sure he can play both wings, but not C. Did look good in pre-season games. Perhaps a late-bloomer we can get some use out of. He plays with an edge and finishes every check. His energy level could be a real boost to this team. Here's hoping.

    Hopefully he doesn't go down quickly like last time. I liked what I've seen from him.
