The Canucks need more toughness.

GIllis was clear that a shortened season will likely result in increased injuries. He also said, the Nucks seem to always have inuries to their D-core. A trade may be coming but this could just be insurance against ending up with a depleted D.

8...I wouldn't include Barker in the mix as "NHL ready". :P

Vandy is a good signing though, he adds some toughness to the blueline.

Anyone else have a feeling a trade will occur something like Lu being packaged with a guy like Ballard?

Could be since we have like 9 D, but I think it's just depth.

I like it.

Hamhuis - Bieksa
Edler - Garrison
Ballard - Tanev
Barker - Vandermeer
Alberts - Connauton

Pretty solid

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

Now the people who were whining about signing Barker over Vandy can shut the hell up.

THANK YOU GILLIS.

That's a very nice contract. Hoping he'll be re-signed at the end of the year if he plays well and for the same amount of money
