    I think they see him as a center who can PK, but he can also play wing as well if I'm not mistaken.

    Really hope he can stay healthy, as I liked what I saw when he played a few preseason games for us a year ago. Hoping he is a guy that can solidify our fourth line, or at least be a nice spare in case of injuries. Won't be holding my breath though, he just can't seem to stay healthy.

    Normally I'd call hyped up and career AHLer an oxymoron.

    Seriously, good luck Pinner, we're rooting for you.

    Pinizzotto for Calder.

    Or can he even win the Calder due to his age?

    Only one of those truly deserves to be called a legendary Canuck.

    I expect a really big game from the guy who has spent 28 years trying to make the NHL

    Too bad he is 28 years old, otherwise........Calder Trophy???????????????

    Maybe a Hart Trophy or an Art Ross, but he is too much of a black sheep for Vezina

    Yep, only on HFboards does a guy go from 0 NHL games to top line.

    Also only on HFboards, does a '2nd round pick' equal out every trade proposition

    What a great story of perseverance!
    It's a good news story to see someone who has worked so hard for so long finally get to play an NHL game. He's realizing his dream and must be thrilled. How can you not pull for the Pinner given all of his hard luck.

    Jensen on that top line isn't really that ridiculous. If you've seen him play, you'll realize that he is probably the perfect fit to play with the Sedins. Amazing hands, drives the night hard, can pounce of rebounds and knock in garbage goals. Not to mention he has quite the shot too. It's about putting players into situations where they can succeed, and I think Jensen could very well succeed playing with the Sedins.

    Well only on HF, and in Edmonton...
     
  16. On Canucks.com, those folks are already planning Jensen's Ring of Honour night.

    I'm excited to see Pinner built up so that after a week he can be the whipping boy and scapegoat for all the Canucks problems.

    I'm commissioning a Nicklas Jensen statue as we speak.

    To be fair he was right on track for the type of player he is until he missed basically two full seasons. Hopefully he becomes a good player for us and stays away from his injury problems he has been having.

    I am cautiously optimistic...

    So the Canucks thought he'd get picked up on waivers after all, hence all the hoop-jumping:

    If Pinner can stay healthy, he'll have people asking who Volpatti is and where is he now.

    Volpatti played almost 13 minutes for Washington last night, and had an assist.

    That just wasn't an opportunity he'd have gotten here. glad he's getting a chance to play, should help him carve out a decent career.

    -----

    On Pinizzotto, wow, great shift to start his NHL career. Impressive. Seemed to cope well with the speed of the game. Had a few bobbles and such, but I like that when he throws hits, he's throwing them hard...

    Happy for him.

    He was good. More pest-y than Volpatti was.

    Loved seeing Pinizzotto out there. Put on a pretty solid debut last night. He's got that perfect mix of grit and skill.

    Pinizzotto-Lapierre-Weise makes for one hell of a skilled 4th line.
