They revealed that during the draft party yesterday. People were saying that they conveniently did it after the Canucks pick to help deflect some of the attention from it

BUFFALO, NY – It certainly appears as if the Dan Hamhuis era is over in Vancouver.

Canucks President of Hockey Operations Trevor Linden all but confirmed that news Saturday at the completion of the second day of National Hockey League draft. Despite repeated suggestions from the hockey club over the past few months that there may be a way to resign Hamhuis, the Canucks have now informed the 33-year-old defenseman to be ready to hit the open market after six successful seasons in his home province

Edler-Tanev
Hutton-Gudbranson
Sbisa-

Tryamkin, Biega, and Pedan to battle it out for the #6 spot.

I find it hard to believe they can't find a spot for Hamhuis on this defense, especially given that Hamhuis has given every indication that he'd be willing to sign for a discount to stay.

Assuming we don't acquire anymore dmen, we're going to have at least 3 guys on the backend who handle the puck like it's a hand grenade plus Edler, where you never know if he's going to do something incredible or something incredibly stupid.

Didn't Traymkin sign a 1 way NHL contract? If so the top 6 is settled.

Cringe worthy D core. On the bright side, at least the Canucks will be a lock for a top 5 pick next year.

Pretty sure this will be our fate for the next couple years (minimum).

I think the top 4 D will be more than adequate. The wildcard will depend on whether Sbisa continues to improve and how Tryamkin will do with an actual NHL training summer in.

if there's one thing JB can do it's assess talent, so I'm pretty psyched for OJ

but if there's another thing JB can do it's getting shafted on trades/contracts, so waiting on Lucic's new deal or trading away our first rounder next year or something

Laughable, Hamhuis not good enough for the Canucks but Stanley Cup contenders were willing to give up a first round pick as a rental?

Management here is a joke with Dim Jim at the helm and Linden is starting to piss me off as well.

Hamhuis is looking for term. He was 32 when the other teams wanted him for one season.

He's just another depreciating asset. The team is in a rebuild mode, we don't need to sign old players.

I don't have a problem with not re-signing Hamhuis... I have a problem with not moving him when they should have. Same with Vrbata, if they knew Desjardins was going throw him under the proverbial bus never playing him with the Sedins, then they should have told him such in the off season and traded him as a 30 goal scorer before the season started.

Someone needs to mentor them...see the Oilers of the past 5-6 years. Hamhuis is perfect for that role and 32 is not old as most good defensemen play up to 38.

No, he signed an ELC, which is always a 2-way. He does have an out clause if he's sent down, however.

Guess Edler can mentor the young D cause he's a stud.

So essentially a 1 way NHL contract.

We already have quite a few old veterans on the team that are already restricted to NTC.

I also like the way Canucks are going with our defense. We won't be a playoff team next season with or without Hamhuis.

You guys seem to forget that Hamhuis held all the power. If it were easier to move him, he'd be gone.
