Okay, yeah, got it:  his old expensive deal is over.

yup its 750k so its really a no risk thing. Its really the week off that makes it interesting to me. Gives us a chance to evaluate him in a risk-free way.

Nice guy. Finished as an NHL player. A bust with Calgary, Edmonton and now St. Louis, how on earth does he fit anywhere on the Canucks roster?

On a roster with Chiasson on it? Really?


Could be an asset on the long eastern roadtrip coming up.

Ya, he isn’t what he was… but we have guys like Chiasson playing regular minutes for us and on the PP even.


He can’t be worse and could be better.  Big guy, pretty physical… can be a net front.


Not exactly the type of player Rutherford was mentioning before and liking big and fast guys, but doesn’t cost us anything and is an extra veteran body if we end up moving out a guy or two before the deadline.
