Cam Charron@camcharron
Puck-moving defenceman, better on offence than defence, doesn't have a great shot. #IvanBarankaScoutingReport

News1130 Sports@News1130Sports
The #Canucks have called the agent for 27 year old Slovak defenseman Ivan Baranka.


Baranka was drafted 50th overall in 2003 NHL Entry Draft by the New York Rangers. Prior to that he was a member of the Everett Silvertips in theWHL for two seasons.
Baranka signed his first pro contract with the Rangers on September 15, 2004. After spending 3 full seasons with the Hartford Wolf Pack of theAHL, Baranka played his first NHL game with the Rangers on November 21, 2007,in which he recorded his first point on an assist of Colton Orr's goal against the Tampa Bay Lightning.[1]
On May 15, 2008, the Rangers confirmed that Ivan Baranka accepted an offer from Spartak Moscow, but that the Rangers will retain his rights.[2]

hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Gillis better hurry the frack up with the Luongo trade so we can see what else we have to do. I don't want to hear some bs excuse from him saying that we just couldn't get enough for Lu ... blah, blah it wasn't my fault.

was he drafted? Don't know much about him.
How big is he? Can he play defence?

These are the questions that haunt me..

Uggh. Why does he always try and find project players?

I get the whole moneyball thing, but sometimes you just have to pay up for good talent.

Baranka has spent the past four seasons in the KHL. Prior to that, his rights were owned by the New York Rangers. He played one NHL game back in the 2007-08 season. He was drafted 50th overall back in 2003 after playing two years with the Everett Silvertips of the WHL. His junior numbers are unimpressive as well.

His KHL point totals are as follows:

2008-09: 47 GP, 2 G, 9 A, 11 points
2009-10: 55 GP, 10 G, 22 A, 32 points
2010-11: 50 GP, 8 G, 9 A, 17 points
2011-12: 47 GP, 5 G, 16 A, 21 points

Here's his HockeyDB page:
http://www.hockeydb....y.php?pid=72680

Hardly anything to brag about.

Also, for anyone who was hoping we would acquire a right-handed defenseman, Ivan Baranka shoots left.

Um who?

And yeah I'm getting kind of tired of the money-ball approach as well, you have to spend to get quality players, Gillis, you can do it for once brah.

Actually I don't think there is anyone worth the money right now though

Come on. It's a little too early for that. Give him some time.

Do you not notice that all the big names are still out there, and none of the contending teams have done anything either.

Patience. I'm sure he has several offers put out right now is just waiting for a response.

i dont like to quote myself but...


11 million in salary, and i can almost gaurantee that gillis won't make a push for a top 6. at the most i could see us picking up a 3rd line centre that NOBODY predicted or mentioned, and a 5th/6th d-man nobody has ever heard of.

MG is starting to piss me off. Does he think that he's so much smarter than the rest of the league, that he can find all these castoffs and turn them into players simply with our gourmet chefs and personal trainers.

Meanwhile our core gets older, our farm system is no better now than it was 5 years ago, and we still don't have a freaking half decent bottom 6.

Frigg!!!!!
