Blum and Cleary would be outstanding pick ups for us.

edit: actually according to Botch, two hours ago it was "Cleary to the canucks 2 year deal" .. nothing since.


edit 2: that is not Jason Botchford's twitter account.

Generally agree in terms of Blum providing depth on the right side, but can people confirm to me if Cleary can play centre? If yes, then I would agree on Cleary as well, but otherwise I'm still scratching my head about that. Good, character checker as a smaller Maltby-clone but we need centres more than wingers.

Haha. It was all over the place for a few minutes there... the Wings board at HFBoards, apparently rotowire.com had it up as well.

Ahh well, caveat emptor on twitter as always.. :scowl:

If the Canucks sign Jonathon Blum I'll be happy with their free agent signings. I'd take him over O'Byrne.

Detroit getting better today…sounds like they’re going to get Weiss.

Stalberg and Cullen to Nashville?

5 year, $21M for Bozak...Kessel better re-sign!

There's a strong trend of FAs to the east which makes me happy. I don't mind the Canucks missing out on FAs so long as they leave the conference.

Not too concerned about an Edmonton team backstopped by Dubnyk and Labarbera.

Thank GAWD the Wings are in the East now.

I like David Clarkson, but seven years and $6M per is way too much for a 29 year old who has really only had one big year…the guy has never cracked 50 points (Mason Raymond and Michael Grabner have, for instance). He will be bought out at some point.

Not a bad price for a 1st line centre that's not a star - if he produces more than he has thus far. Sounds like he wanted to test the waters and Nonis knew he'd be screwed if he let Bozak walk.

I don't have firm details on Clarkson's contract but 7 years at just under $6 mill/yr... am I the only one who sees that as a tad generous on term and cap hit? 30 goals is 30 goals, but still...
