July 3 Open Thread: Fighting Back The Yawns

You tried your best and you failed miserably. The lesson is? Never try.

Your scorecard heading into day three:

In: Daniel Sedin, Henrik Sedin, Aaron Rome, Nolan Baumgartner, Lawrence Nycholat, Matt Pope, Tanner Glass

Out: Mattias Ohlund, Jason Labarbera

Who's this Tanner Glass you ask? I have no idea and can't find a source to confirm he signed except Hockeys Future has him listed as a Canuck prospect, so for now, let's assume he's on our side. Career stats are here. If true, he appears to be a decent pick up:

Glass is a reliable, hard-working two-way forward noted for his great leadership. He is a player who leads by example and will do whatever it takes for the betterment of his team. Glass is a fierce competitor who isn’t afraid to mix things up. His quickness and speed allows him to win many battles to loose pucks. He is defensively responsible and can play in virtually any type of situation.

Besides that, day two was pretty much the same as day one with Gillis standing pat at the NHL level, opting to pick off AHLers to round out the cavalry. From a depth perspective, not much to complain about. Though to quote John Muckler, "Having a bunch of great guys in the room is nice, but maybe we need a couple asses that can play hockey."

Mirtle guesses that Vancouver has plenty of money to spend and we know the holes that have to be filled. Is today the day? Some quality names are still floating out there, including Tanguay, Kovalev, Sykora, Afinogenov, Samuelsson, Jason Williams and Fedotenko amongst others. On the blueline there's still Mara, McKee, Morris, Kalinin, Seidenberg, Bergeron and Beauchemin (though he has got to be in a bidding war by now).

If you see something, drop your thoughts in the comments.
