    I always kinda thought that Vaananen would turn out to be a more prominent defenseman.  But he's a guy the Jackets could use, he does his job in his own end and can play a pretty physical game.  The Jackets really need to do more to take pressure off of Adam Foote.  This would be a small step in the right direction.

    Im surprised the Avs let him go. Who do they have besides Hannan and Leopold who was injured most of last season.

    nvm. i forgot about Liles, Clark, Skrastins, and Sauer. and i thought Vannanen had the ironman streak. Still i would of done something to make room for him.

       This guy has the longest consecutive games played streak among active dmen. I believe he led the league in blocked shots last year too.

    Ya i got him mixwd up with Vaananen. He broke Tim Hortons streak though right?

    I think Morrison only has the Vancouver record.

    He is a very solid D-man. Don't look for a ton of mins or points. hes a good 5th or 6th guy nothing else, great season with the avalanche too bad kurt Sauer had to out play him when it mattered. He will offer some much needed strength on the jackets blueline.

  13. jrw647 says:

    who do they have besides Hannan and Leopold lol maybe you should check out Clark and Skastins and if its a point getter Dman look at Liles. Your talking about a 6th D and askin why the let him go lol you got to be kiddin me.
