All of this stuff about Hamhuis not getting points is irrelevant. Canucks don't want him for his offense. Our D was the highest scoring D in the entire NHL last year. We have Ehrhoff, Edler, Salo, and now Ballard to do that stuff.
What we need Hamhuis for is in a shutdown defensive role..... playing against other team's top players and killing penalties. Any points he puts up is just a bonus. That's why Hamhuis is worth $4.5m to us and more.... when maybe you have a legit argument he may not be worth that much with NAS or some other team. To VAN, Hamhuis is more valuable than say Gonchar. We have enough offensive d-men.
