    Canucks sign Gagner, Del Zotto, Nilsson, Wiercioch, Burmistrov, Rodin


    Sam Gagner has signed a three-year deal with the Vancouver Canucks.
    Gagner will get $3.15 million per year, a significant increase from last season when he received only $650,000 from the Blue Jackets. He had 18 goals and 50 points last season but saw bottom six minutes although he did get power play time. Look for Gagner to be a top-six player in Vancouver and look for 50-55 points if he remains healthy.

    The Vancouver Canucks have signed goaltender Anders Nilsson to a two-year/$4.5 million contract.
    This is a sneaky pick by the Canucks as Nilsson is more than capable in net and could be the starter over Jacob Markstrom. Nilsson was 10-10-4 with Buffalo last season and had a 2.67 GAA and .923 save percentage. Don't forget about him late in drafts as he is a nice sleeper pick.
    Del Zotto:

    Michael Del Zotto has signed a two-year contract with Vancouver.
    Del Zotto will get $3 million per season. The offensively talented defenseman had only 18 points in 51 games with Philadelphia but look for Del Zotto to get more power play time with the offensively-challenged Canucks.

    The Vancouver Canucks have inked defenseman Patrick Wiercioch to a one-year contract worth $650,000.
    The Canucks have been busy at free agency as they try and rebuild the team. They get an inexpensive defenseman in Wiercioch who showed some offensive talent in Ottawa. Wiercioch had four goals and 12 points in 57 games with Colorado last season so don't expect much in 2017-18 from the blueliner as far as fantasy pools are concerned.

    The Vancouver Canucks have signed forward Alexander Burmistrov to a one-year deal.
    The former Arizona Coyote did not get a qualifying offer and was on the UFA market where he will get 900,000 from the Canucks. He has not been a stud to say the least after being drafted eighth overall in 2010. Look for a 35-40 point season in Vancouver for the Russian.

    Anton Rodin signed a one-year, $700,000 contract with the Vancouver Canucks.
    It's a one-way deal. Rodin played in just three games with the Canucks last season because of a knee injury. The 26-year-old was Vancouver's second-round pick in 2009. He won't have much fantasy appeal going into next season.

    Nilsson and Del Zotto have turned into good signings but I wish we never inked Gagner that was a bad deal in term. The dollars I don't care but he shouldn't have been given the 3rd year and really 1 was enough. He has not panned out and we are stuck with him another two years. The others were whatever but only year deals. Gagner contract will hurt next year when the funds could have been better used. Gagner and Sutter are just bad cap management.
