Schneider has new NHL contract – Wonders about a trade


CORY Schneider
has a new contract, a two-year, one-way deal worth US$900,000 per season.

What does it mean in a world where Vancouver Canucks starter Roberto Luongo is about to start in on his 12-year, $64-million extension?

It means Cory Schneider has a new contract.

Heading to the Canucks

On Monday, the Vancouver Canucks have announced that they have signed Sergei Shirokov to an NHL Contract Shirokov recorded points in 56 games with CSKA Moscow of the KHL in 2008-09. The Canucks selected him 163rd overall in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft.

Who Gillis should go after

Not only is it obvious that the Canucks need an offensive defenseman, but it is inevitable that they get one. Who is left on the free agent market that could provide the PP quarterback service and a good first pass out of the defensive zone.

Canucks Sign Samuelsson

TSN Reports:

The Vancouver Canucks made their first move in the free agent market, adding winger Mikael Samuelsson with a three-year deal. Financial terms were not disclosed.”Obviously that (the money) was the key, I shouldn’t lie,” Samuelsson said in a telephone conference call Friday after signing a three-year NHL deal with Vancouver.

Likelihood of Bert back in Vancouver?

Just throwing this out there and I know i’ll hear backlash, but thats what we love eh?

What’s the likelihood of Todd Bertuzzi coming back to Vancouver?

What hockey moves should the Canucks make?

With the trade deadline quickly approaching rumors are at a season high. But with Dave Nonis already stating he would NOT be trading away the Canucks future for rental players, what moves will he be making?

Who will the Canucks go after?

Pretty much everyone who knows anything about the Vancouver Canucks, knows they need help up front. So who can they go after to add to their top six forwards?

Bieksa out for months

If the Canucks were to trade.

Fair enough, the Canucks play the season has been less then stellar; they have suffered many defensive set backs mixed with being unable to score. Many people are suggesting trades but they seem too implausible or trade our young to get better now, the same mistake the Canucks have made forever. The right course action would be just get through the season and spend the newly freed up 10 millions dollars, from Naslund’s and Morrison’s contracts, on free agents.

Problems plaguing the Canucks.

It goes to show that there has been a lot of hype about the Canucks defense and its prospects of at least reaching the playoffs after managing to sign Sami Salo, Kevin Bieksa, and Lucas Kraijeck to extensions as well as signing Aarron Miller to a one year deal. This would leave the Canucks with a solid top 6 of Mitchell, Ohlund, Salo, Bieksa, Krajicek and Miller. A great defensive core, for any team, add to the fact that Luongo is manning the pipes in the rear, most people would think that the Canucks would be a very hard team to score against. However, the Canucks are off to a slow start (5-8-0)(1-6-0 at home “worst in the NHL”) after finishing the season with the best record after Christmas (32-8-6), as well as the best PK in the league. Things aren’t looking to great for the Canucks.
