[Signing] Canucks re-sign Travis Hamonic


Recommended Posts

I dig this deal, Hammer took a while to shake off the rust last season but was an important part of our D. He's a stabilizing force.

 

With an actual training camp, preseason, ect I imagine he'll look better to begin the season. Good dollars, good term.

Yeah just saw that, but we can fill the rest of the bottom 6 with min contracts. 

True... JB needs to be smarter in finding good bargains... lots of veterans wanting to play for $800k in a nice city!!

Not sure about that, Vancouver usually has to pay more because of the media here. Plus taxes and all other Canadian issues.

Was hoping for closer to 2.25-2.5, but it's still a good signing. I just wish we were able to land a *true* shutdown guy to play with Hughes.

Why would you want Hughes in a shutdown role, playing against the top offensive players every night?  You want to shelter him from that, not seek it out

I bet he would have gotten 3.5 with more term elsewhere 

Then let him and laugh at the dumb GM who gives the contract.

 

This (and the Poolman signing) screams desperation move because we literally have nobody else capable of actually playing defence on the team.

He didn’t mean them in shutdown roles he said partnered with a shutdown guy.

 

like a Tanev a defensive dman.

 

Think you misunderstood him

Honestly I don’t know anything about Poolman. Never paid attention to him.

 

On Hamonic, you are completely out to lunch

If you partner someone with a shutdown guy, you become a shutdown guy.  You will be playing against the other teams b st forwards most of the time

Oh look, another anti-Benning patrolling at full force.

 

If you can't see Harmonic is an excellent Tanev replacement, you're not a hockey fan.

 

Go watch cricket.

I think we tend to forget that we signed Hamonic for a below market deal last year because he wanted to say in Western Canada for the year. Hamonic played well and he deserves this.

I think the line up will look like:

OEL-Myers/Poolman
Hughes-Hamonic
Rathbone-Myers/Poolman

That's some serious size on the right hand side and Hamonic/Poolman being more defensive specialists will allow Hughes and Rathbone to play more aggressively in the O-zone
