Hearing Canucks have agreed to terms on one year, $700 K pro-rated deal with d-man Cam Barker. I like that signing.

I'll comment here because I prefer when the thread titles have [Signing] in square brackets.

Pretty cheap. Good Moneyball signing.

Wow... Didn't expect it

Maybe Cam is taking it seriously for once and will step up. 700K pre rated I forsure think he is worth the gamble..

Wonder if he will make it over Tanev

Hamhuis - Garrison
Ballard - Barker

Under 900,000, I am still happy with that. Must've been liked what they've heard from the guy so far. I trust Gillis with a decision like this, there has been Barker-smoke for awhile now so I am assuming they held numerous discussions. I am guessing he is over his substance abuse problem, ready to turn over a new leaf and I am excited to see what he brings!

That's a good price. Hopefully Barker will find his game again and fill in nicely as our 6th D. Now hopefully, if Vandermeer does indeed become a Canuck, hopefully for the same price. Less than 1M

Certainly going to be our #1 defensemen. Give him a couple more years to improve his game and he'll be our new and improved version of Matthias Ohlund in no time

There's still one big trade likely coming with Luongo, so maybe Tanev is that young player needed to get a young player out of Nonis, who knows? Or maybe Ballard is going with Luongo and Canucks will take some of the cap?

If not, I see Barker starting off as a 7th or 8th guy, and playing an Alberts like role and if he make the best of it, moving up more often.

Alberts, Barker

Connauton, Mullen, Sauve and Joslin.

Good depth, but I still see one more tweak coming.

Hmmm, Interested to see how he works out. Not sure how effective he'll be but if he can stick as 7 or 8 D and provide depth it'll be alright. Other wise he's familiar with Chicago.

Honestly, I think Gillis would rather prefer to keep Tanev and maybe ship out Ballard because of the cap.
