I didn't realize his UFA status was in 2 years.

3 years for 1.6 or 1.65 cap-hit sounds like a great deal for both sides.

Although if he signs for 4 years, he could get a touch more.

I think there is value in having a player fight for a contract. Sometimes, complacency creeps into a player's game if he knows he doesn't have to fight for a contract that summer. With a relatively unproven player like Hansen (that's mostly his offensive side), I think it puts the organization in a better position to negotiate the next contract because they have a larger body of work to evaluate. I'd bet the Canucks would be happy to pay slightly more this summer for one year of his service knowing what type of season he's had than be paying slightly less without the certainty that he was going to improve at all from last season (or even regress).

I don't think the contract thing makes any sense in this case. Hansen is a young player who wants to establish himself as an NHL player. Having the security of a two year versus one year deal at $800k isn't going to impact how hard he tries if not trying means he's not going to be in the NHL after his contract expires.

Hansen of last season, even if he didn't improve, was easily worth $800k. There was little downside to giving him an extra year (basically a small risk that he regresses so much that they have to bury him in the minors, which they've had no qualms doing in the past) with the relatively significant upside that they'd have him on a bargain contract for next season. The value of a bargain contract to teams that spend to the cap is huge.

Team Denmark would have a pretty good PK/Checking line with Hansen and Frans Nielsen.

I hope that the emergence of young Danish players like Mikkel Boedker, Lars Eller and Peter Regin along with Hansen and Nielsen means that Denmark is developing as a hockey nation. It would be nice to have another competitive team out there for international competitions.

Two summers ago Gillis said that he wasn't giving Hansen a one way contract because he felt he could use the motivation, that he saw top six potential in Hansen. Recent jokes that Hansen is the "best practice player in the NHL" seem to confirm that the team feels they can get a lot more out of him, that he still isn't playing up to his peak.

^ I wasn't very high on Hansen before this year, I liked him but thought he was replaceable. He has continually proved me wrong this year with his progression.

I get a sort of Fernando Pisani vibe from Hansen... what I mean is that I wouldn't be surprised if his offensive game clutches up in the playoffs and he scores some key goals including OT winners.

I have always liked Hansen and was pulling for him to play a significant role for the Canucks. He is a very versatile winger and can be an offensive spark. He does have top 6 potential and I could see him getting a Burrows-like contract. I don't remember more than a couple of Hansen's goals and assists being unimportant. It seems like all of his goals come in close games and I do believe he will be clutch for us.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Rodin follow the same career path as Hansen.

So he'll score 14 goals in the PO and re-sign to a 4-year 10-mil deal?

Just because they would also be part of the main scoring line for Denmark doesn't mean they wouldn't still be a line of checkers.

Yeah, Burrows is a pretty good comparable actually. Though Burrows was playing in the top six when he signed that contract.

This thread needs a bump since Hansen is now 3rd in team scoring behind the Sedins.

Someone remind me who was responsible for recomending Hansen?

Man he has to be one of the best finds in the 9th round of all time.

He has more games and points than several guys in the 2004 top 10, our own Cam Barker for instance.

Well him and Mark Streit and ofcourse Pekka Rinne in round 8.

Love Hansen, but......

He seems incredibly hot right now.

I'm wondering if he might be the piece that gets moved to bring in a legit second line center.

Raymond and Higgins have lower hockey trade value because they are UFA's at the end of the year. Booth is overpriced to have much trade value. Burrows won't be moved and I doubt the potential of Kassian will be moved. That leaves Hansen.

Hansen may be at the top of his market value right now. It's up to Gillis to decided if he can maintain this scoring pace in the coming years, or if he will revert to the mean and this is just a hot streak? If that's the case he is probably at the top of his trade value right now and may fetch the center the canucks need. With Jensen and Blomstrand providing more depth on the wings, it might be time to see what he can fetch at center.
