Joslin and Mullen: What was the purpose of signing them?


Recommended Posts

Why did Gillis sign Joslin and Mullen? Is this purely for the Wolves? If so, is this because an AHler will be brought out of the minors?

I understand signing Garrison, who is clearly a top 4 defenseman.

However neither Joslin or Mullen bring anything the Canucks lineup currently need to the table. Are they part of a larger move during the summer?

I need answers!

We gave up Rome and needed to replace that depth.

Joslin is inexpensive and has NHL experience, and could rotate into the bottom-two pairing along with Ballard (you know he's going to be there) Alberts, and Tanev, depending on AV's whims and what he wants in a particular game, or to cover for the inevitable injuries to our defensive corps.

I think one of them was a Baumer replacement, the other better not be a Rome replacement. These guys are both pretty brutal so hopefully we never see them play a playoff game. I hope MG picks up a decent #5 defenceman at the deadline in case of injuries, otherwise if we lose say Hamhuis to a concussion and Bieksa to a leg injury, look at our defence:

Edler - Garrison

Ballard - Tanev

Alberts - Joslin
