Dan Hamhuis In The Fold

Posted By Luke Mirza On Jul 1 2010 @ 4:50 pm In Vancouver Canucks | No Comments

ESPN reporting that Dan Hamhuis has signed with Vancouver for 6-years @ $4.5 Million per year. Awaiting Confirmation but most sources putting this one in as done. I will confirm when it goes through.


Update: Confirmed deal for Dan Hamhuis


Manny Malhotra was terrific for the Sharks last year and the deal is the right amount ($7.5 million / 3 years) for a very good 3rd line centre. Looks as though Cody Hodgeson will likely remain in Manitoba with this deal, but thats also not a bad thing.

The Canucks have added Keith Ballard and Dan Hamhuis within a week to the D group in Vancouver makes this team a considerably more formidable opponent. For Hamhuis it should be a good fit, close to home and since last years trade deadline Vancouver seemed to be the place he was looking to go to. The Canucks seem to have closed the door now on Willie Mitchell returning and will most likely need to get rid of someone else pretty soon. These are the moves that need to be made when you are trying to get over the hump in the playoffs so if it doesn’t work, nobody will say Mike Gillis didn’t do everything he could to get ahead.

More to come…
