Right-handed shot, presumably will play the right side on the third pair with Bitetto. Basically Poile was looking for a right-handed version of Jackman. A vet that can handle third-pair minutes without being awful.

So does he get the number 6 and does the pro shop charge full price on all Weber apparel?

League minimum deal. Steal of the day along with Grabner.

I will not be happy if he wears 6. We are retiring that number as far as I'm concerned. They should announce it Jan. 3.

Servicable player. Was a professional when he was here in Van where he had a diminished role due to Hutton's emergence.

I wish all the best for him in Nashville

Had a lot of promise when Montreal drafted him but never really reached it. Good shot, good speed, makes mistakes.

On second thought, maybe we don't need a clone of Bitetto playing next to him.

With a league minimum deal, the Jackman buyout makes more sense now. We got a younger, basically same caliber player and saved $750K

Very different stylistically though. Good mobility, good passer.

52% Corsi player on a bad Canucks team, though he did play a pretty sheltered role, as he likely will with Bitetto for us.

more timely than that, he is a big friend of PK !

he has a good snipe ! i hope he thrives ... at the Kitchener Rangers, he was on paar with PK as a habs prospect ! and there were PK fans and Weber fans ! at the time he won the fastest shot in junior league.
PK paned out pretty well while he never found his mojo and was constantly moved .. he was even used as a forward.
He adds good value on the PP. If he would find his game, i believe that he could be of very good value for his price.
He is scoring points on a reliable basis.

between him, josi and Fiala Swiss German will appear in the locker room. It's an awfull language that (i speak) makes Danish or Dutch sound like a love song.

Yeah I agree. By caliber I just meant they are both solid #6 dmen

What true #5/6 D has special things? This guy is here to play 10-12 minutes a night and that's it.

I don't generally expect bottom pairing defensemen to be special unless they're about to be shipped away for a #1 center.

He's going to be like a #5 or 6 D. What special does anyone get from their bottom pairing guys? Give it a rest with the negativity.

He's a 6th guy on a team with a great top 4. He just has to be there. That's all Jackman was.

Thats true there here to keep the damn from bursting to rest the top pairs no doubt. 5/6 guys should also be PK capable Yanic really is not. Sure he will be able to go 6 to 10 minutes with our top 4 thats what is expected. It would help if he could step up in case of injury and I have seen nothing from that indicates that. He has been sitting in the pressbox about 1/3 of the games he was NHL eligable. On two teams that need defense. Hes cheap so its not a big deal. But one injury theres trouble he nor Granberg or Tater are close to being 1st or 2nd pair replacments

Don't expect too much from him guys, he was awful with Switzerland at the WC and he's really weak defensively.. He could be helpful on the second PP unit though.
