Definitely a bit of a surprise but Corrado hasn't really shown any progression since his call up two or three seasons ago. Hutton is definitely better and some think Biega as well. Sucks to lose a depth guy but obviously the Canucks were not overly concerned.

The explanation given was that Corrado want going to be in top 6 and didn't want him sitting

Corrado is almost identical to Wotherspoon. They have had parallel progressions since junior. Both are solid, steady, and unspectacular. Both are good enough to play in the NHL, but neither has done enough to take a job away from another NHLer.

The only difference is that Corrado was waiver eligible this year, while Wotherspoon wasn't. One has to wonder if the exact same thing would have happened here if he were.

As Street Pharmacist said - you don't want a 22 year old sitting in the press box, he needs to play. So they took the risk and it didn't work out.

Just like with Byron - the purpose of waivers is to give guys more chances to make it. In both these cases, it worked.

The Canucks must rue the decision to play Corrado in those two playoff games against the Sharks in 2012 (a series that the Canucks had no chance of winning), but burned a year from Corrado's ELC which made him have to go through waivers this year.

12-15? Shouldn't it be 29?

Curious where you got the information he burned a year?

He played 7 NHL games that season including playoffs. That shouldn't be enough to burn a year.

Due to the shortened NHL season in 2012, the 10 games played limit was reduced to 6 games.

In other news, Benning sends a 5th round pick to TO to complete the Corrado waiver transaction.

Based on Benning's transactions over his tenure with the Canucks I have no reason to question the validity of it.

The Sedins were excellent last night, and the Flames as a whole were really, really bad. I have no doubt that this has produced a wave of optimism here on the West Coast (I can't bear to listen to the morning-after radio debriefs today), which is almost certainly preposterously premature. Given how old they are and how heavily they are depended upon for any sort of success of the Canucks, it is still safe to conclude that Vancouver is no good.

Sedins looked like the Sedins. I don't care what they do in the season opener, let's see what they do in crunch time down the stretch and if they make the playoffs.

Not much from Horvat, Baertschi or McCann. Liked Hutton on D though. Skates well, moves the puck and the kids got patience. Made some good plays our there.

Canucks will need a lot of things to go right in order to make the playoffs this year.

Agreed on all points. I was quite frankly a little surprised about how quiet Horvat was last night. Since I am expecting very little from Baertschi, I was much less surprised that he was basically invisible.

Horvat didn't look bad. He was skating well and led some rushes into the zone. Baertschi was a -1 in a 5-1 win, so enough said about him.

The Sedins were really good though. I suspect their play will still drop off this year, but it's not surprising that they played well in the first game after a long summer of rest.

One thing I have noticed from last year and last night is the decline of Hamhuis. I thought he was pretty bad last night. I know he is not anywhere near a number one guy but he looked slow, took bad angles and weak along the boards. He's had some bad injuries over the years maybe things are catching up to him.

And I love the fact that Sibsa is on this team. Good god he is awful.

Ferland is in their heads so badly. Even in a 5-1 loss you could tell
