Neidermayers to sign in Vancouver? is reporting that both Rob and Scott Neidermayer could be interested in joining the Canucks as unrestricted free agents this summer.

It is reported that their agent was on the Team 1040 radio show in Vancouver and mentioned that the brothers could be interested in playing for Canada’s West Coast club.

“The Niedermayers, natives of Cranbrook, BC, are unrestricted free agents once the signing period begins on July 1 and a return home could help provide the Canucks with the first answer to a the laundry list of questions they are facing regarding their roster.

“Before they signed in Anaheim that was definitely a big discussion. But at that time, it was difficult because Rob was in a situation where he was still one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, so he still had a year left to stay in Anaheim,” explained Kevin Epp, who represents both players. “In Scott’s case, he was unrestricted, and considered very much playing in Canada for the Canucks or Calgary or somewhere near his off-season home and staying out West. I think everyone dreams of playing near your hometown or in Canada or in British Columbia.”

    could be good for the canucks

    If you're a Canucks fan I would be absolutely going crazy to get Scott Neidermeyer. That would instantly make them Cup contenders if they could resign the Sedins. Scott will probably be Captain of Team Canada at the Olympics.  The hockey gods will definetly be on the Canucks on this, first Luongo, now Neidermeyer.  The best Goalie and Defenceman in the league on your team. GO CANUCKS

  3. Kyleton says:

    Second or third best defenceman. IMO anyway. However I agree it would be a HUGE boost.

    Anyone know what the Canucks cap situation is going into the summer?

    Can they afford to resign the Sedins AND get the Neidermeyers while still keeping Luongo and resigning their RFA's and filling in for any departures (Sundin)?

    If this happens, what's with the Canucks and brothers? Will they go after the Staal's, the Kaberle's, and Lunqvist's and the Schenn's (after Brayden gets drafted)?

    If the canucks are able to sign the Niedermayer brothers its good for them.They get great leadership and one of the best NHL defensemen.If they also aford to keep the Sedins its a bonus and they would be a stanley cup contender IMO.

  8. VCRMillionaires says:

    Cranbrook is closer to Calgary then Vancouver right?

  9. VCRMillionaires says:

    Sudin won’t resign and it’s a stretch to add all those FA’s

  10. VCRMillionaires says:

    I hope it's not a package deal like the Sedins cause i wouldn't want to sign Rob. But if we have to sign Rob to get Scott then sure.
