(Discussion) Clayton Stoner

Recommended Posts

Clayton Stoner is a pending unrestricted free agent. He is a big, strong, shot-blocking, crease clearing defensemen who can handle top-4 minutes in a pinch, but is probably better suited for the bottom pair.

29 years old. 6'4 215lbs

Born and raised in Port Mcneill and made a smidge over 1 million last season.

Does this guy remind you of anyone?

He plays a very similar game to Willie Mitchell and could be a great addition to the backend.

My question to all of you is, "Do we need him?"

I recognize the need for a puck-moving defenseman on this Canucks team, but I also think there is a hole in the grit and size department.

Assets: Has great size and the ability to play a tough, stay-at-home brand of hockey. Can also produce points at lower levels. Can play on either side of the ice, which adds to his overall value. Flaws: Needs to display more consistency in all facets of the game, especially in terms of his overall defensive play. Can take bad penalties that hurt his team from time to time. Career Potential: Physical depth defenseman.

He would likely be pushing Stanton out of a job, which I believe is an upgrade for the Canucks current needs.

He's played some very good hockey the last season and half. I'd venture to say he gets paid in the 1.5-1.9 million range on the open market.
