Are The Canucks Close To Signing Mathieu Schneider?

New, comments

There was a point a few days ago where Eklund pushed the Schneider to Vancouver rumor up to an E4. Then there was a guy I was hacking on Twitter for even bringing it up over and over again (I'll eat crow over it if I'm wrong). Now, Sportsnet is saying it's sources are saying the same thing.

Good lord, is this actually going to happen? Schneider still has wheels and can quarterback a power play very effectively, even at 40 years of age. The thing is, he was making $5.75 million last season. Is Gillis going to get a discount on the infamous D-man?

He'll have to free up towards $3 million if he lands Schneider... you know, trade some of his forwards away for draft picks...
