    Tremblay was a pretty good defenceman in Atlanta when I watched him so if Vancouver can manage to get him, he’ll be a great 4th d-man.

    He would a great addition to the second Powerplay unit, since Baumer left.

    canucks also re-signed trevor linden, according nhlrumors2.blogspot.com and nhlpa.com.

  5. Mr_Canuck says:

    They already signed him.

    On http://www.tsn.ca/players if you click on tremblay, it shows signed with vancouver on July 24th.

    that same website is now saying this:

    “Linden signing false

    Earlier there was a report that the Canucks had signed Trevor Linden, it appears that the $1.52 million was an option on Linden that the Canucks did not pick up. So this leads me to say that the signing was false. Linden has not yet been signed by the Canucks but more then likely will be soon. My source for the earlier reported signing was nhlpa.com.”

    yea, plus i dont think linden will be getting that much for next season anyway.

    No, he really wasn’t.

    Positioning, decision making, shot; they were sub-par when he was with the Thrashers. His skating is nothing to brag about either, and that was pre-lockout. Given the more open NHL, he’s more than a few steps behind.

    In a pinch, he can play because he has decent experience. But I would think he’s AHL material at this point, a temporary fill-in if injuries hit. Don’t expect too much out of him.

    This is desperation for Nonis. This guy has an NHL career total of -113 !!! TERRIBLE>

    Even last year in a German league he was -12.

    This guy sucks.

    I hope they dont sign this bum Trembay.They should just go get Matvichuk from the Devils he would be 10 times better then Tremblay since the Devils are dumping sallary and should get Wiemer from them too the Canucks need some toughness and that would save the Devils about 2.2 mill.
