Excellent term and cap hit. Gillis strikes again.

Good to see you guys back!

Is that inline with what most were hoping for?

Ha, funny how at the start of the season. 5 Million was 'good' and we laughed at them asking (or JP Barry asking) for 6-7 million.

Personally I was hoping for closer to 5.5.

Thank god, As much as I hate them when they don't perform in clutch decisions. I don't think I can part with them .

Then they had another injury free season and went PPG in the playoffs. Things change.

What's Vancouver's Cap Numbers with them signed, and how many more players do they need to sign yet?

If we dont come away with another legit top-6 forward, I am going to be pissed. It doesnt seem like now we will be able to sign either Cammalleri, Hossa or Gaborik. Our offense is poised to be league average for the next few seasons.

Not excited. We are out of the running for other impact UFA's. This is a very Nonis-esque move. We go into next season with the same mediocre defense.

If that means another division title, sounds good to me.

Don't forget how Daniel Sedin "laughed" when it was suggested that they were asking for $6.5-$7 million a year. Well, it looks like that's exactly what their bargaining position was since it took until the 11th hour just to get them to sign for $6.1 million.

This leaves the Canucks with approx 4 million in cap space to sign Cammilarri, after filling all the other the holes

If Gillis increased the term by say, two years, I wonder if he could have gotten them for somewhere around 5.5 each. Regardless, I'm glad they're back.

Abso****inglutely worth it! Are you guys seeing this market? Scott Gomez makes $1.2 million more than either Sedin, scores less, is one-dimensional, and gets decent trade value from Montreal.

Take this deal and run.

Now get a ****ing defenseman, Gillis.

About $100K more than I wanted, but when it's a five year deal, this is a steal for the Canucks IMO. Now that the top line is taken care of, lets work on the defense.

lol. This is what I would guess 90% of GM's would do. I don't see how resigning your top producers who show no sign of slowing down for a relatively low term is 'Nonis-esque'.
