No details on salary amount or whether it's a two way deal yet.

I'm a bit split on this signing. If Rypien can play a full season for once, then I like it, as the guy is a fighting machine, and I think he has more skill than some people give him credit for. I don't think an Alex Burrows-type explosion is in his future, but I do think, if healthy, Rypien can bring the type of game to the bottom six that it lost when Burrows graduated to top-line duties. 10 - 15 goals wouldn't be out of the question. He could score 12 against Calgary alone!

Of course, if injuries persist, I don't see how they could bring him back when this contract is up.

The signing should be at the minimum salary that the team could give him.

Good to get him signed as long as it's for less than ~0.750k/per.

Nice to see us signing RFAs early and the roster already taking shape for next season.

Meh, He's a good fourth liner but until the Sedins are re-signed everything else is boring.

Hilarious - in the tsn.ca story they show a picture of Markus Naslund hugging the twins. Talk about lazy-ass news reporting.

See Rypien has good speed and toughness. See him replacing Johnson as our 4th line center following next season.

Is a decent PK guy and this the area in which the Canucks really need to develop him.

Key point here, as noted, will be the salary.

Eww. I guess the love affair between him and Alain Vigneaeult continues...



I wanted to hear Hansen, not useless old Rypien.

I wonder if it's near league minimum but one-way.

AV didn't sign him. Gillis obviously likes him, too.

Rypien is awesome, glad he re-signed. However I'm not too excited given I know he'll spend most of that time injured.

Mike Gillis is doing his business early. Approved.

Breaking News: The Vancouver Canucks have signed a lucrative deal with Johnson and Johnson to promote new



It's going to be exciting to have Rypien, Salo, and Gaborik on the team next season...

Still not a big fan of Rypien but he grew on me as the season went along where I'm not sending threatening letters to Gillis about him being on the team (I save those for his possibly re-signing the Sedins) but he's adequate on the 4th line and shown a knack for clutch play. No complaints from me.

I'm not getting too excited until I see how much he's making, besides Gillis has much bigger fish to fry, I want to see what he does with our other important FA's to be, I think signing Rypien is the least of our priorities, he should receive the left overs of what Gillis does with our more important players.

It's likely that he signed for league min in exchange for the two-year contract, a i scratch your back you scratch mine between him and Gillis. I doubt it would be much more. Perfect for a 4th line role at his cap hit if he can stay healthy. A 4th line with Hansen Johnson and Rypien with Hordi coming in when neccessary would be effective both in cost and performance.

ya, you gotta love this kid. He does everything his coach asks of him, and more. He's not going to have the scoring touch of a Burrows (odd thing to say, I know), but he's probably the toughest guy, pound for pound, in the entire league.

Glad to see him re-signed as he was a UFA(Group VI), and letting a 25-year-old player who can definitely play(when healthy) go for nothing would have sucked.

Rypien provides good grit, speed, hustle and underrated talent on the bottom-six. The question is, can he do it for more than 5-20 games per season?

Also, the question is how much $$$ does this cost the Canucks?

should be a reasonable contract and rypien is great for the 4th line. i have a feeling he will play a lot more next season seeing as he had all that time to properly rehab after his surgery this year.
