Free-agent Vandermeer sees a fine fit in Vancouver, but do the Canucks?

Arnott was lined up, waiting in the wings, Ellis voiced his desire to come mentor Schneider, and now Vandermeer?...I don't know, I'd take a flyer on any of them if they came cheaply enough. If Gillis uses his Jedi Mind Tricks to get get him for a 600 or 700 k cap hit, as a spare Dman/enforcer/13th forward kinda role I'd be into it.
I don't mind getting older if the players we get are filling a role, and tough guy/spare is a cheap hole to fill, so we may as well pay someone cheaply, and make it someone that wants to be here. Pahlsson was fine, so youth isn't the only asset I think Gillis should be looking at short term.
Its tough to get younger, and especially better if you're looking younger, on the UFA market.
