Canucks Army Postgame: 6-2 Be Us

That's Offside!
March 19 2015 11:39PM

The Blue Jackets came in to Vancouver having been severely outplayed last night against the Edmonton Oilers, so tonight's game should have been a schedule loss. But, as the Canucks were reminded tonight, there's a reason why they play the games. Vancouver came out flying but stumbled thereafter, as the Jackets put six goals in the back of Vancouver's net en route to a disappointing 6-2 final.

Should the Canucks Re-sign Luca Sbisa?

That's Offside!
March 19 2015 09:00AM

On the surface, the answer to the question posed in the headline is a simple "no way," but our thoughts and opinions on this aren't the ones that matter. 

As fans, we've all seen the pizza deliveries, the blown coverages, and the own goals this year. In addition to the poor play, Luca Sbisa is on an inconveniently back-loaded contract and will be enormously expensive to qualify this summer. Just retaining his restricted free agents rights with a qualifying offer will force the Vancouver Canucks to commit $2.9 million on a one-year deal (that is unless they take him to arbitration and seek to cut back his salary), which should be a non-starter.

Or it would be a non-starter if stuff like "the Canucks like Sbisa" and "the Canucks see Sbisa as a future top-4 guy" wasn't being floated by those with more insider knowledge than we have. Vancouver, allegedly, believes Sbisa has taken a step forward and media speculation has him coming back next year, pricey RFA deal and all. But are the Canucks wise to think this way? We'll investigate on the other side of the jump.
