That being said I hope he doesn't start as we don't have the type of schedule to be experimenting next year I could understand, but this year? Strange.

Edit: Funny how opposing teams think he's going to start. Hahahahahaha.
There is no reward. Sorry.

Incorrect. The plan is to wait until the Hawks get an injury to a D man then send him to the Wolves and hope the people calling a a Hawks dman pick him up by mistake.

So he should be fine with the way the league was the last half of the season?

He either works out or we waive him and pick up someone else. They probably wanted an depth offensive defenceman.

What's with all the hate on this signing? 700k for a guy who might see three games this season on an emergency call-up basis is a pretty typical signing.

Also of note is the fact that Vancouver - love em or hate em - does have a good track record with getting the most out of cast-offs. Maybe with a real NHL-level defence partner (sorry Edmonton) the guy could actually play 12 responsible minutes when needed.

You mean when he got 2+ minutes of PP time/G on the #3 power play in the entire league? Thank god he scored one point.... Didnt he get cut from an AHL team?

Yes.

The guy led the team in shots during his time with the Stars, firing 66 pucks on net. He also scored three times and added five assists. Yet, was a healthy scratch on occasion so the Stars could give their up-and-comers – names like Jamie Oleksiak, Jordie Benn and Brenden Dillon – the minutes they felt were necessary.

Any time a rival team signs a horrible player who bleeds goals against, I approve. Thanks Vancouver, you just got easier to play against for 10 - 15 minutes a game in the games Barker is dressed.

Man we had the worst blueline in the NHL last year and gave this guy enough rope to choke himself with it and that's EXACTLY what he did with it.

I wouldn't even want him on my AHL team.

Do I like the signing or thinking it makes much sense? Not really. Will it have even a marginal affect the Canucks' at all? No.
It's really no different than when fans (including those in Vancouver) quickly jumped out of the woodwork to criticize the Oilers for picking up the guy.

And I promise you that the same treatment would be given to any other team who would have picked him up right now. This isn't a "Vancouver thing." It's a Cam Barker thing.

Except Edmonton (somehow) signed him to shore their defense in a 3rd pairing role. At 2.5 mil/year.

Vancouver wants a fresh body in the press box and some pressure during tryouts. Signed for 700k, which can be buried in he minors under the new MOU/CBA.

I hope you can see this fairly large difference outlined in my post.
