(Proposal) David Steckel 4th line C


Recommended Posts

This player has flown under the radar of the Canucks for a long time. His numbers are really good..

He was 6th overall in faceoff wins pct in 11-12 and also had the most shfow in the NHL with 169. He's big, has an impressive -14 rating over 419 gms played in a defensive role. 79 points totaled up giving him around .18 ppg. Boudreau had him brought into ANA to help lighten the load from Perry and Getzlaf and he got 6 pts in 21 gms... not too shabby but the youth of ANA has made it and his time to move out has come.

He doesn't cost an arm and a leg, almost a veteran for the younger guys to watch and learn from and imo would anchor the 4th line. His pk skills would be great to have given the decline and eventual departure of Malhotra (faceoffs) and Lapierre's absence.

Steckel 1m per season on 4 yr deal is what I'd offer...upto 1.3 if I had to.

Thoughts?

Richardson is a rw that can play C... . Depth at this spot is needed... true his wheels arent the best but his FO skills are top notch and his defensive game is solid mentally. We have a lot of upcoming talent...but we need a guy that can win them now and play now. Having a solid pk is really going to help this year as I think we may see more minutes than in the past. Remember Kes getting hurt right after coho being moved?

Win the draws....win the games.
