Well some how the Sharks, a top team, felt the need to sign him. Must be doing something right.

Regardless, at this point, he isn't worse then Alberts in terms of defensive ability. Add the fact that he is a VERY solid fighter with plenty of experience, making him a much needed asset on this team.


And the Sharks have been known as a brutal defensive team for years now.

You honestly think that Alberts is any better at this point?

If we do sign Vandermeer, he isnt gonna beat out Tanev or Ballard for a spot in our bottom pairing.. he is a DEPTH defenceman, someone you call when you get injuries or against the Bruins/Hawks.

Vandermeer is more mobile, fights better and hits harder than Alberts, the edge i'd give Alberts over Vandermeer is his reach, but overall, Vandermeer fits our need as a depth defenceman.

He's pretty good for depth. He can play at the NHL level and provides something we don't have a lot of.

We could have EASILY given a PTO to both and ultimately signed both. Having 9 D on the roster is nothing for a team with as many routine injuries as the Canucks.
