[Rumour/Speculation] Brad Hunt coming to Vancouver


Recommended Posts

I'm so torn between Hunt and Schenn... Hunt is a bit too small but got some offensive upside... Schenn can't really skate but is so tough!! But looks like they are both here to fill out the D. 

 

Guess we can't afford to bring back Hamonic or anyone better with a tight cap space!!

Hunt is presumably gonna be the number 1 D in Abbotsford - local player to get it going (from Maple Ridge).

Ya that makes more sense if a 2-way deal!!

Bet we’re gonna see more than a few hometown AHL studs come play for Abby.

Never heard of him. He an AHL candidate?

He's been in the Canucks' system before, playing for their affiliate when it was in Chicago.

 

He's been in the NHL more recently but is definitely a fringe NHLer and will be brought in as an AHL defenseman as a 'star' d man in Abbotsford for their inaugural season.

I'm gonna predict a one-way deal, and that's the incentive of going back to the AHL. Probably close to 1-1.250m (under the bury threshold).

Good partner for Woo to keep playing with until he joins Rathbone too.

 

Similar puck moving D men. I remember him being a good skater with a cannon of a shot.

I am assuming JB cleared cap space for a reason, but the rumours so far are for very inexpensive players. Hunt, Schenn, Halak, and are pretty underwhelming.   Will be interested to see who his bigger targets are.

Does he have a brother named Michael?

Nah but he has a cousin named Magic. Named after Magic Johnson of course.

Develop an undersized D for what?

Defenseman.

 

And we’re not developing him. He’s a legit AHL star who can help our other young players like Woo.
