So like 50K over the league minimum.

Perfect deal.

Nice deal for us.

Who gets re-signed next? Sedins, O'Brien, Hansen, Wellwood, Labarbera, or other?
I think Hansen is the safe bet.

I wanted to hear Hansen, not useless old Rypien.
If anything Rypien has more use to the Canucks than Hansen ever will. I hope they deal Hansen now that they have shown they are set on the 4th line.

Why would we trade Hansen? Rypien will probably be injured for some time next season and Hordichuk won't be dressed every game.

Because Hansen is not a 4th line type of player, and he wont crack the top 9 next year with Hodgson and Grabner moving up.

God forbid we follow a winning model like Detroit and take our prospects slowly. No, if a young player doesn't crack the roster we have to trade him, immediately, can't possibly allow a 23 year old player to spend another year developing. No room for that on the perennial losers that are the Vancouver Canucks, won't have it, no sir.

Perfect deal for all involved. Even though he was an UFA Rypien had little to no leverage at all agains the Canucks...there weren't going to be a huge list of teams willing to pay much more than the Canucks ended up paying him. Plus the Canucks are already familiar with him and have "walked a long road" this season with Rypien - good deal for both. Rypien also had one heck of a playoff run IMO too.

The next player to sign will be O'Brien I would guess. He is a RFA with arbitration rights but there is no way in Hades this kid gets taken or asks to be taken to arbitration. Too much bad blood during the season that somehow seemed to go away towards the end of the year....I say a three year deal at $1.5 million for O'Brien. That's just a little less than a $500,000 a year raise and puts him at UFA at the ripe age of 27/28...just when d-men come into their prime.

Your point is valid here, but this has to be the most overused statement of the last six months. Did CBC do a feature on Detroit's development or what?

???? I wouldnt get all deep about it. Hansen is worth something in a package deal that could land us a quality top 6 forward. Why let him rot and devalue himself down in the minors again next year?

I guess some of you have forgotten the lost puck battles in that Chicago series. 5'11 my butt. He's a good player in doses, but Vigneault overplays the guy.

I am glad he is back. Our bottom 6 need bigger hitters like this guy. He plays hard, is fast and can fight. The guy seems to have some scoring ability for a 4th liner.

Character is important on a team. Would be nice to have him for a full season though.

He was put into the top 6 in the playoffs because of the injury to Demitra or someone.

4th line playing 5 minutes is a good amount. He should not see any PK time as well.

BWA HA HA HA HA HA HA

You are blaming a fourth liner who plays like 6 minutes a game for the lost puck battles against Chicago?

Some people just crack me right up.

Yeah, teams should just carry ~2-5 man rosters. Who gives a **** about the rest, right? Not like they matter.

It's not like our 3rd line is set for years to come or anything. Hansen is a very nice gem to hold onto, and probably the most likely to not get screwed into being a bust of some sort. I doubt Wellwood is a guy that has solidified his spot for years to come, and there's still a chance that Raymond makes a jump to the second line at some point. That leaves Bernier, who, although unlikely, also has a chance to eventually jump up.

Even if EVERY one of our prospects reaches their maximum potential,

Sedin - Sedin - Burrows
Raymond - Hodgson - Grabner
Hansen - Kesler - Bernier
_____ - Rypien - ______

There's going to be room for Hansen.

That's not what I said is it. Rypien lost puck battles due to his lack of size and strength. There were countless times where his line got hemmed in their own zone.

I'm fine with the guy for the most part, but Vigneault seems to like him to the point where he overplays him. I don't see a reason for him to be on the penalty kill.

People are developing a superiority complex around here.

I'm glad that he's going to be hanging around. He's a hard worker and adds some needed toughness to the lineup. He's also showed flashes of hands that could mean there is some untapped potential to contribute more than PIMs. It's nice to have a guy filling a roster spot for around league minimum who still brings some intangibles. I think Pyatt will walk and Rypien will take his place as Gillis trims cap space.

All 4 lines got hemmed into thier own end too often. The 4th line was the only one I saw sacrificing thier bodies to try and make plays each and every shift. They finished every check they could and they were blocking shots and giving it thier all. If the top 3 lines had played with the same heart and fearless determination, Vancouver would have won that series.
