Canucks and Panthers both fucked up with this guy, and then the Canucks go and draft a similar, but not as good, player... still makes no sense to me, homer excuses or not.
My opinion is that Grabner wouldn't have had the same offensive output/development on the Canucks because of the coach. It's clear that AV clearly has his favorites and type of players he likes. AV doesn't really trust the young skilled players like Grabner, Hodgson and Shirokov, if they make 1 mistake, they seem to be planted to the bench or press box. Whereas young grinders and career 3rd/4th line guys like Glass, Oreo, Bolduc, Desbiens can make mistakes repeatedly and AV keeps playing them.

Kuzma seems to think Shirokov won't be qualified, making him a UFA. That would be a mistake IMO, he was the Moose's top player and had a awesome playoffs for the Moose. Thought he showed some signs in his brief time with the Canucks, even if Shirokov didn't make the Canucks or goes back to the KHL, at least qualify him to retain his rights or continue to develop him in the AHL.

If that deal is true, it will be interesting to see what Ehrhoff does.

Sorry guys, my bad. Someone re-tweeted a fake Kypreos account (RealKyper_ instead of RealKyper). I should've known something was up when it didn't show up on my timeline.

Bieksa's contract terms are still completely unknown at this point if he has indeed signed.

This one is the RealKyper:

#Canucks. #NHL news. Heard at the draft the cap hit for Bieksa in Van would be around 4.7M on a long term deal but not confirmed right now.

Checked the website, and nope. But I wouldn't be surprised if there is one within the next year. Their price (14.99/month) is pretty good compared to rec centres and other gyms.

LOL my parents signed up for his gym with him a few months ago. Received a signed picture from him and he signed a jersey for my dad. The Highgate gym location was originally supposed to open in June, but they ran into delays.

SportsnetMurph says that Bieksa's deal is 5 years long, 4.5 million range. Pretty good deal for the Canucks, coulda picked up over 5 easily on the free market.

I hear $4.7m which is still good, 5 years.

I'm worried about what this means for Ehrhoff. He had 50 points so he should be getting a big raise...maybe $6m. I was hoping Ehrhoff would be at around $5m-$5.25m because if he gets that, Edler would probably get the same but if we give Ehrhoff something crazy, it would mean we'd have to match that with Edler and have a blueline full of guys making more than $4m.

In two years...

Edler ($6m) + Ehrhoff ($6) + Hamhuis ($4.5) + Bieksa ($4.7) + Ballard ($4.2) + Salo ($2) + Tanev (900k) + Rome (750k) = $29.05m blueline

Not bad but it firmly commits us to the top 5 D-men long term.

Bieksa's deal is 5 years, 4.6 million per. With a no trade clause. #Canucks
