OK, put on your Mike Gillis hats... are they on? Good, now here's your question:

Which contract would be better for the Canucks.



Christian "the Hoff" Ehrhoff for 10 years at a cap hit of 4million dollars.

VS




Kevin "Boom Boom" Bieksa for 5 years at a cap hit of 4.6million dollars.


Did the Nucks make the right decision?

I don't think Ehrhoff's contract is something you can evaluate at this point. If the cap continues to progress at the rate that it is, in 5 years Bieksa could be looking for more than $4.6m, while Ehrhoff would still be tied in at $4m.

Bieksa adds a much needed element to the Canucks blue line that Ehrhoff could not supply. They already have Edler, Salo, Ballard and Hamhius they need some stay at home d-men.

Canucks ownership probably wouldn't want to pay the 13 million in signing bonuses either.

its really a $4M hit for 6 yrs (last 4 yrs are meaningless). looks a lot better than the Bieksa deal when you look at it that way.

I see Hamhius as more of a 2-way guy, he has some offensive flair. Bad example I guess though him and Bieksa are pretty similar except Bieksa is more physical and will fight where as Hamhius throws hip checks once in a while. I should've used the word "physical" not "stay at home" my bad.

Bieksa's. In 4-6 years Buffalo is gonna want rid of Ehrhoff because of that ridiculous length. You only sign your franchise cornerstones for that long.

If Bieska lacked an injury history I'd be forced to change my mind... but then again if he was always healthy his cap hit would probably be over 6M
