Hero 01-14-2013 02:06 PM

Better choice for Vancouver right now than Barker

etherialone 01-14-2013 02:06 PM

Why? I mean JVD won't come close to cracking the Canucks roster.

Grandpabuzz 01-14-2013 02:07 PM

Dominos. They should go after Jeff Finger now.

Ogopogo* 01-14-2013 02:07 PM

Heh, heh, heh. This is getting good.

With injuries, you never know. Anyways, a much much better option than Barker.

FireEverybody* 01-14-2013 02:08 PM

Ahhhh what are they doing?

Never heard of team depth? Gillis loves to have as many options possible. My guess is that Gillis is offering these guys one-way deals at less than $900K and if they don't make the team they'll be sent to the AHL. You can never have too much depth when it comes to defense.

Already working on it... Finger, Eaton, Campoli, Commodore. No point in stopping now.

with no training camp/preseason Gillis is preparing for the worst. not a bad signing.

They really want the D. :)

I like it. This year with lots of injuries likely for all teams defensive depth will be key. Aaron Ward said that same thing on Vancouver radio this am. Almost every team will need lots of defencemen.

I get points for every time this is asked.


While Barker has, Vandermeer hasn't played in the minors for a long while. The Canucks have too many defensemen or Vandermeer is now fine with playing in the minors.

While they could find a take for Ballard, it wouldn't surprise me to see them dealing Edler. Even though his value/salary ratio is quite high for this season.

For a 48 game season, an organization needs to grab as many defenceman as humanly possible, even the crappy ones. Canucks are being smart in this situation by grabbing as much depth as needed.

danishh 01-14-2013 02:10 PM

In what world is picking up defenseman that Edmonton didn't want any sort of plan?

Ever hear of something called "depth"?

Bobby Lou 01-14-2013 02:10 PM

Short camp and heavy season schedule probably means more injuries ... just stacking up on defense in case the worst should happen.
