Jannik Hansen Re-Signed.

According to cap geek 1year 550k.
http://www.capgeek.com/cap_calculator.php

Good signing leaves Nucks about 3 million under the cap with 1 d-man left to sign.

Good news. I assume it's a 1 way deal? If it is, him, Hordichuk, and Rypien will be the rotating 13th forwards. Hopefully Vigneault uses Hordichuk more sparingly than Hansen so we can at least have a semi-skilled 4th line.

Hansen-Johnson-Rypien

Wow, I'm shocked and thrilled. 550k is incredible value for what he brings.

If Hansen took 550k on a 2 way deal, that's an absolute steal.

Not a pay-cut though, because he's actually making ~42k more than he did last season - that's a raise. Kesler will be angry.

I was really hoping for a 2 or 3 year deal. If Hansen breaks out this season then it could cost us a lot more in the long run. Hopefully he has a decent year and we can resign him in the 750 to 1.5 million range on a longer term deal after this season.

Either way it's nice to see that he got done and it doesn't really matter IMO if it's a one way deal or two way deal since he likely wouldn't clear waivers.

Now we can finally focus on getting another defencemen or two and hopefully that happens sooner rather then later.

How on earth could the Canucks regret signing a young player to a near-minimum contract? He's still an RFA after this as well.

too bad they couldn't sign him for a longer term. I would have given him a 1 way to lock him in for a longer term.

People forgot about the Matt Cooke situation, already? Maybe even the Bure? the majority of players remember when they low balled as RFA's.


Hansen practically signed a contract that he didn't want because he had to, it won't necessarily be the same case next year.

We have no idea how the negotiations went. If Hansen was that upset about his offers, he could have easily elected salary arbitration. From reading the media reports about the situation, it sounds like he really wanted a 1-way deal, and it looks like he has that.

Hansen is not eligible for Arbitration.

Well if he's trade bait that is a pretty good looking contract for a team looking to dump a defenseman on us...

They might wish they had chosen the longer term contract.

I posted this in the Trades & Rumors thread already - but thought other people may want to see it. Hansen the Policeman...

Great news. Marketable contract if he gets moved, too.

He was eligible for other teams to send offer sheets. Maybe that's what he was hoping for.

I'm amazed that he took such a small increase. I can only imagine that it is actually a one way contract and that was the trade off.

Excellent signing. And that video reminded me how much I dislike Matt Cooke.

I think Jannik Hansen is a bit overrated on these boards.

Matt Cooke and Pavel Bure had roster spots and had proven that they are NHL players. Jannik Hansen has not been able to hold down a roster spot in 2 years. Until he can prove something, nothing is a low ball. Especially with our uncertainty heading into the season as to whether there will even be room for him in the top 13.

Why on earth would we sign him to a longer term contract? Are you aware of our logjam on bottom 9 forwards?

This makes Hordichuk expendable, lol. $200k savings right there.
