But oh well, can't complain too much. He brings quite a bit of toughness to the team.

Most importantly, it seems as if AV can really whip him into shape. When he says something stupid, or takes dumb penalties, it seems AV can really straighten him out.
a 2 year deal wouldn't have lowered the cap hit, he would just be making 3.2 over 2 years instead.

This deal gives the canucks the opportunity to see if he develops well and if so they can lock him up before UFA.
