UFA Jim Vandermeer gets a one-year, two-way contract with Canucks at a $600,000/$275,000 US split between NHL/minors.

Stocking up in case of injuries?

Askel 01-14-2013 01:06 PM

Better than Barker.

LickTheEnvelope 01-14-2013 01:06 PM

Which contracts are sliding this year? I'm counting 51 contracts now, 50 if Gaunce isn't counted.

pitseleh 01-14-2013 01:07 PM

I like this in conjunction with the Barker signing. Vandermeer isn't good but at least he's not a complete disaster.

Taelin 01-14-2013 01:07 PM

Hopefully he can push Alberts for a spot.

Is he RH or LH?

Fictional Realism 01-14-2013 01:07 PM

Well people in the Barker thread lamenting about Vandermeer get their wish. Isn't this guy like criminally slow? Adds toughness at least. He has to be better than Alberts.

pahlsson 01-14-2013 01:07 PM

bad signing, he doesn't have the amazing upside of refinding his game and being a top 4 PMD like barker

are we at 50 contracts now?

VanEric 01-14-2013 01:07 PM

It seems like Gillis/Vigneault would prefer to rely on cheap veterans in a condensed season than trying to bring young players along. I can't say I disagree with that plan.

KidCanuck* 01-14-2013 01:08 PM

Hmm wonder if there will be a d-man getting moved.

Gaunce is a slider ELC

Burke's Evil Spirit 01-14-2013 01:10 PM

Shouldn't Corrado and Jensen count as sliders too? So we're at 48?

Edit - That's assuming Corrado doesn't make the team, of course...

ddawg1950 01-14-2013 01:11 PM

The conventional wisdom is that a shortened season is going to increase the chance of injury. And our D corps has been notorious in that regards for years. Keep stocking up, Mike.

Can he play on the right side at all? :(

At least he won't have to go through waivers; might end up with the Wolves.

KidCanuck* 01-14-2013 01:11 PM

600K cheap plus a 2 way

PRNuck 01-14-2013 01:12 PM

Every time Jim Vandermeer signs a contract, an angel punches Milan Lucic in the face.

Canucker 01-14-2013 01:14 PM

I guess all the Cam "Sky is falling" Barker detractors can climb off the ledge now. :laugh:

Or perhaps just move to the ledge on a lower floor.

Yes and Corrado won't make it, it's just to reward the kid for a good year thus far and give him a glance at where he needs to be next year to push to make it. McEneny is also a slider. So we have 4 sliders

These low-skill physical d-men ought to be able to play either side really easily, it's not like they have to make pinpoint outlet passes.

MikeK 01-14-2013 01:16 PM

Most likely for the farm team. Could be an emergency call up due to injury. I don't mind this.

LickTheEnvelope 01-14-2013 01:16 PM

Oh apparently Gaunce, Corrado, Jensen and McEneny all slide...

So Nucks are still only at 47 contracts.

Canucker 01-14-2013 01:16 PM

And the Oilers just traded a 3rd rounder for Fistric...I wanted him!

Barker is also slow. So is Alberts. Basically a bunch of pylons once we get past our Top 6.

JuniorNelson 01-14-2013 01:17 PM

Vandermeer can clear the crease. This is a good thing.
