Sami Niku has six points in 13 games and is +3 on a terrible Montreal team with a league min contract. Not sure why they are waiving him but i would assume someone grabs him.


Has to be an upgrade over Hunt.

Hope it's us.

Wouldn't be against a Niku claim as a potential upgrade on Hunt, but don't think an offensive LHD is what the Canucks need for D depth right now. They just need a solid, Jordie Benn LHD type who can play a reliable shift IMO. If I were GM I'd rather just give Rathbone some NHL games rather than claim Niku.

There must be a better example of a LHD we could use. lol

as a number 7-8 D, I thought Benn was pretty solid and could play a dependable shift. Fantenberg and Kyle Burroughs have also been solid recent players in those roles IMO. On the other hand, Brad Hunt on a team with two LHD PP QBs already, hasn't really been effective IMO.
