The Youth Movement Has To Start In Vancouver

from Ed Willes of the Vancouver Province,

The move that would send that message most forcefully is buying out Eriksson. We’re aware that’s easy to say when it’s not your money, but the Swedish winger has been a crushing disappointment in his two seasons here and there is nothing to suggest things will get better. He’s also taking playing time away from younger players. The same can be said of Gagner.

Vanek, meanwhile, is the ultimate no-brainer. The Canucks can’t bring him back and expect their fan base to take the rebuild seriously.

To remind everyone, we’re talking about a team that finished 28th two seasons ago, 29th last season and is currently sitting 28th.
