The Canucks don't have enough quality defense prospects playing at the AHL level to worry about this signing IMO. Connauton is arguably our top prospect in the AHL and his future looks anything but bright. As long as Peter Andersson doesn't lose his spot, it's not a big deal IMO.
Who knows what Arniel will do with him if he is sent down. He has given leniency and preference to players with vet experience over prospects this season.
I still believe Polasek has some upside and was just called up. I don't feel he should lose his spot to Barker either. And this is not even touching the fact that he is not a good player at the AHL level. Why do you want that on our AHL team that is struggling to make the playoffs as it is?
As a camp invite, i was willing to brush it off. It's whatever. It is what it is, but as a signing, I'd prefer almost anyone else worth mentioning left in free agency.
