Lui's Knob Posted July 9, 2013 Share Posted July 9, 2013 http://www.capgeek.com/free-agents/?year_id=2013&team_id=-1&position_id=D&fa_type_id=2 After the 3 day mad rush for signings, the UFA pickings now are slim; Canucks have about 5-7 holes to fill (not including Wiese/Tanev signings). Here are some notables left that are young/cheap that the Canucks could look into or bring in for a tryout: Defense: Tom Poti - Torts will be familiar with his play in the East - aging but may come as a tryout Radek Martinek - big Dman; cheap contract Douglas Murray - Swedish connection? although he may be too rich of a contract to sign here Andrew Alberts - still think the Canucks will wait him out and see if he returns Kurtis Foster - booming shot, big Dman - cheap contract Garnet Exelby - bounced around a couple teams fits the 'bite' the Canucks need Mark Fistric - Canucks have kicked the tires on this guy; replacement for Alberts? Theo Peckham - similar fill in for Alberts and can play 4th line Steven Delisle - CBJ; very young; for AHL Comets Fowards: Brunner - this is a top 6 fit for the Canucks; highly skilled sniper; however likely too rich of a salary if over $2M Prospal - played with Torts in NYR/Lightning <?> - may come cheap for final contract or bolt to KHL Larose - top 9 player; Canucks may look to the Hurricanes again for another player Petrell - decent PK 4th line player Edmonton didn't sign Halischuk - played well in NSH as sandpaper bottom 6 player; cheap contract Aliu - project player for AHL <?> Daugavins - bottom 6 player ; shootout specialist but also whiffed on a game winner in SCF Kostopoulos - bottom 6 player; cheap contract Palmieri - big bottom 6 player; cheap contract Kearns - Canucks connection - big 4th line plug; replacement for Weise?
