TheRussianRocket. Posted February 25, 2015 Share Posted February 25, 2015 @News1130Sports: Hearing the #Canucks have started talks with Derek Dorsett about a new contract. Dorsett is a UFA this summer if not re-signed. @News1130Sports: 1.6 million is Derek Dorsett's AVV - he's making 2 million dollars this season. #Canucks. @News1130Sports: Brad Richardson also a UFA, his agent Mark Guy says : "We have not begun any formal contract discussions at this time." #Canucks As expected by most. Brad is a great depth player and brings a lot to the table (faceoffs, PK, leadership) but Bo has shown he can take over his spot. Horvat will be 3rd C next year in all likelihood. Dorsett, hope he doesn't get anymore than $1.5 mill and 2 years. He is the engine to the bottom 6 a lot of the times but we can't get too high on him and overpay. Kings just signed Jordan Nolan to $950K and he's younger, bigger, faster, cheaper. Kind of like what we did this year with so much competition on the bottom 6, should try to keep it that way and let players work for their time. Younger the players the better as they have more potential to move up the depth chart, like how Matthias, Kassian, and Kenins have done so. Anyways, I'll be pleased as long as Willie isn't part of the Dorsett negotiations Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
