The hit by Pyatt on Rome was discussed at length previously - the reason he got hit was that being left handed and playing the right side, he had his head down with his back turned towards the oncoming forward, Pyatt, coming out from behind his net - some kind of inexperience playing the right side in the NHL.

Anyhow, was very solid playing the left side.

solid but unspectacular. I'd trust him to be a great bottom pairing defenceman.

Earned his right to stay with the Nucks, let's see how much money he will be earning before making further comments.

But welcome back Aaron.

Hopefully a similar deal to the one HW reported was offered to Glass. Nice 6th/7th defender who played solid hockey. I feel better with him out there than SOB, TBH. I think he actually clears the crease better but manages to be disciplined and smart at the same time.

Awesome news. Rome is one of those guys fans of other teams don't know about/just think he's a plug, but he played some very solid defense this season. So much so that I'm comfortable with him in a #4 role should he have to be pushed there due to injuries.

He's the absolute perfect #6 or 7 defenseman.

I must admit that as much as I wanted Rome back I really didn't expect him to sign. I thought he'd get just a slightly better deal from somebody else and Gillis would then respond with another depth signing.

But Rome seems like a great depth guy, he didn't complain when he wasn't dressing, then when he got his chance he really seized it. Basically he's the polar opposite of Mathieu Schneider.

Currently there has been no rule change just a policy change allowing for a suspension in certain cases for what remains a legal hit. A rule change has been proposed but it has yet to get to the Competition Committee.

Under the current policy it would not be reviewable nor would it be a penalty assuming the new rule is enacted. The proposed wording for the rule change from the GMs:
Quote:
"A lateral, back pressure or blindside hit to an opponent where the head is targeted and/or is the principal point of contact is not permitted. A violation of the above will result in a minor or major penalty and shall be reviewed for possible supplemental discipline."

It's a well known fact that dumbasses mature slower.

Get SOB signed and we round out our top 4 of Bieksa, Rome, Alberts, and O'Brien.

This signing makes it obvious that one of Bieksa or Obrien are on their way out.

Bieksa? Edler
Salo Ehrhoff
Alberts - UFA signing
Rome
Baumgartner

OB out?

Good deal. Cheap solid depth guy.

This should almost certainly make either SOB or Alberts expendable, particularly if we're going to try to sign a top 4 players.


Personally, I'm with most on this board who think we should try to jettison Bieksa to make room for a Hamhuis signing, plus bringing back Mitchell on a 1-year incentive laden contract.

Fantastic. This gives the Canucks a lot more flexibility to upgrade the top end of their defence because Rome is perfectly adequate as a #6 guy.

750K a year over 2 years is a great signing IMO. Rome keeps it simple, brings some physicality, stays out of the penalty box and doesn't hurt the team - exactly what a #6-7 defenseman is suppose to do.

This should spell the end of Shane O'Brien. Comparable player to Rome but will want more than twice the salary.

I said before, I like moves like this a whole lot more than going bargain bin hunting every summer. In 06/07 we had Fitzpatrick, 07/08 we had Weaver, 08/09 we had Davison. Now we're set with Rome as our 6th/7th man for two more season, I approve. Ditto for a guy like Glass. These are bargain bin salaries that we have locked up on the cheap for two more seasons. Good moves to flesh out a roster and generate training camp competition.
