The Vancouver Canucks on Monday claimed defenseman Ryan Stanton on waivers from the Chicago Blackhawks.

Stanton, 24, played one regular-season game with the Blackhawks last season, with a plus-1 rating, one shot on goal and two penalty minutes. He spent most of the season with the Blackhawks' American Hockey League affiliate, the Rockford IceHogs, where he had three goals, 22 assists and 126 penalty minutes in 73 games.

I thought Stanton was pretty solid in Rockford?

I like Dahlbeck. Mostly the same type of players, mid-sized defensive type dmen with limited offensive upside but Dahlbeck got to about the same level in much less time than Stanton.

As much as Ive been raging about Olsen, he looked decent for a bottom pairing as well.

Good for Stanton to get a shot with Vancouver... but I cant stand the Nucks.

Sucks that he was claimed by Vancouver, but I think he's pretty much peaked as a professional hockey player. He's a #7 or 6 Dman, and he's prone to dumb penalties. Obviously, most should know he also has very limited offensive upside.

This creates an opportunity for Olsen and Dahlbeck, should there be injuries. They won't have Stanton blocking them now.

Happy for him to get his shot. He's a dime a dozen player, easily replaceable. Still would have been nice to have him as an option. He's much more polished then anything else we can bring up.

He has paid his dues in the system to get a shot somewhere in the NHL, but the Blackhawks have no use for him.

happy he gets his chance, but no loss for us. Our #9 D makes the Nucks roster

...as their #8D. I liked Stanton over Kostka. But oh well, we'll have to find a new #7D next year

Just wanted to say that Stanton has been perfect in the #6 role for us in his first 3 games, really shows your team's D depth though.

More like our team's habit of giving 3rd pairing vet D men 2 year contracts and Q's love of vets.

Brookbank is better than Stanton.

When it comes to depth dmen the Hawks know exactly what BB can do. Stanton, not so much - he will in all likelihood surpass BB after some NHL seasoning, but that’s the way it goes. Right now, BB is the better depth guy to keep especially in the case of a rash of injuries.

I think most of us, and more importantly the Hawks, would rather have kept Stanton but you can’t keep all your prospects. Now that he has landed, I imagine Stanton is quite happy that he was waived and there are probably a few others in the minors that wish they could get out, and who can blame them. Being a prospect in the Hawk org can be a tough go with all the skill they have on the roster and in the system.

Torts loves him.




Not trying to rub it in - I don't expect him to crack a lineup of lefties like Keith, Hjalmarson, Leddy, Oduya. Though I think if he was right side defense men he'd have made your team. Our team is a bit more balanced with playing sides, so he slots in nicely #6. Andrew Alberts has lost a step this season, so its nice to be able to push him down the depth chart.

That would mean he'd be playing over one of Oduya or Leddy.

Naw.

Clendening and Johns are coming up too.

Although, I still haven't heard a compelling reason why Johns should sign with the Hawks. Not sure how the rules work exactly but if I'm Johns I see our D lineup set for the next 4-5 years and try to sign elsewhere.

Loyalty? Not being a jackass and leading a team on for 4 years?

Yeah the Hawks have a great D, but coming to Chicago, he'll learn from some of the best Dmen in the league and be part of a team that has a chance to win the Cup every year.

Not to mention, there's a legitimate chance that he could step onto the Hawks' roster next year. Yes, there will be tons of competition, but Rozsival probably won't be back and likely Brookbank won't be either. That'll leave two spots up for grabs and he'll be competing with Clendening, Olsen and Dahlbeck. Potentially Kostka as well, if he's brought back.

Ripped straight from an Anaheim blog pre-Shultz defection...

"Either hockey is a business or it's not. If it is, then Schultz owes us nothing. The only thing we've done for him so far is draft him. It's hard to make some argument that we have somehow been loyal to him, and therefore deserve his loyalty. The CBA anchors players to teams until they are 27, or for a minimum of 7 years. If you want to talk about what Schultz REALLY gains by not signing with the Ducks, you have to talk about freedom. He will have something that very few top prospects in his situation will have, the ability to choose where he wants to play."

Rozsival is signed for next year, FWIW.

Or he'll end up stuck in the ahl. Sorry but I can see why a prospect who had choices might want to go elsewhere.

Business is business. Making 80k for two years or stepping onto some club - minor or pro - making a guaranteed 600k?

Until he's signed a contract I'm weary of him staying.

Not worried about Johns. Not too many organizations are going to be standing in line to get him. He's no Justin Schultz by any means.

He's a solid prospect for free. Every team is interested.
