Isn't he an RFA? Or was he not qualified by the Isles?

Early reaction from Tambellini, as per Islanders Beat writer Katie Strang:

Text from Jeff Tambellini: "I can't wait to put that jersey on." Very happy for Tambellini, who'll be playing for his hometown team in VAN

I remember wanting the Canucks to draft him way back when.

depth move to contend against the prospects we already have. Not bad.

Believe me or don't, but Jeff Tambellini is a friend of mine and I just spoke to him on the phone. I'm thrilled, he is here.

He is ecstatic, this is a kid who grew up around the Canucks organization, still spends his off season here and loves this team. He is a good locker room guy, is hardworking, and doesn't have any red flags with his character.

As a player, he is 26 now, so no longer a prospect, but still has a good upside. He is a great offensive player and was terribly misued on Long Island. Islander fans were glad to see him go, but the jury is still out in his potential. The Islanders track record of player development speaks for itself, so him having an opportunity on a contending and well managed club will bring out the best in him.

Prime example, he was benched for a series of games after registering a hat trick.

At best, he develops into a poor mans Raymond. At worst, he becomes the best player on the Moose.

This is probably his last chance to prove himself as a full-time NHLer and he takes it really seriously.

That said, it will be interesting to see how Vigneault uses him. He may be a project similar to Wellwood, but he is certainly proud to be a Canuck, which is exactly what you want.

BC boy, has wheels and a great shot.

This is a moneypuck move if I've ever seen one. Will be a valuable addition to our AHL team and could make our team in a bottom 6 role, providing some offensive punch. Will be a great option if someone gets injured.

Love the moves today. Love.

And he told me it was a one year deal, didn't discuss dollars.

Seriously, I'm not against the signing but come on, let's be realistic about this guy. Someone said a poor man's Raymond, I'd say closer to a poor man's Kyle Wellwood at this point in his career ...

That is exactly what he is. He can also fly and good on PK. Good depth move. Impressive day for Mr. Gillis and staff.

No risk acquisition from Gillis. Worst case scenario... Moose meat.

It's a two way deal. Kristin Reid interviewed him, should be on CDC (site, not forum) soon.

You're talking about Michael Grabner here, who has a career high of 48 points in the AHL. Tambellini, while a fringe player, had 76 points (38G) in 57 games. Seriously, let's be realistic about Grabner. I'd say Grabner is closer to a homeless man's Mason Raymond at this point in his career.

I imagine unless he impresses at training camp and beats out on of Shriokov/Schroeder/Hodgson to a spot, he'll be on the Moose till we get an inevitable injury, in which he'll either bandage the role if it's bottom six or Malhotra moves up to top six and he goes where he was.

Still, I like the move. I doubt it pays dividends, but he's a good player and it's very good, very cheap depth to the team.

“I’ve been coming in here since I was seven-years-old so I almost grew up with this team and being able to see behind the scenes made it something I always wanted to be a part of and if I ever had the opportunity to be a Vancouver Canuck, I was going to do it,” said Tambellini. “The minute that offer came in, it was done in my mind.”

He isn’t kidding.

”The minute I heard the Canucks made me an offer, it was a no-brainer and I didn’t even listen to anything else that came in.”

Low risk, big reward move. He's scored at every level but the NHL and has never had any talent around him at the NHL level. I'm excited to see what he can do.

Cool beans.

He has to clear waivers to go to Manitoba though.

Look at this shot:

Gillis made history, again.

Tambellinis become the first father and son to play for this franchise.

not true.

Jiri Slegr and Jiri Bubla... Slegr is Bubla's son, but changed his last name to his step-father's.

Points in AHL don't translate perfectly into points in NHL ... Tambellini may have put up more points but what's he done in the NHL since then? Grabner at least looked semi-dangerous in his 21 games with the team and - at 3 years younger - is a lot further from busting than Tambellini to be honest.

So Gillis basically replaced Grabner with a player who is better right now, and cheaper.

Should be interesting in camp, any chance that he can play alongside Kesler?
