ESPN Insider has Canucks going after defenseman Dylan Reese from the Islanders
Per a story on ESPN Insider this week that suggests that Canucks are looking to find a replacement for Andrew Alberts, Keith Ballard, and Aaron Rome.
Could they find that guy on the Islanders roster? Seriously? We'll see.
The player mentioned is Dylan Reese. (UFA (2.2 GVT))
Time will tell. Stay tuned to NWSB this week for continuing 2012 NHL draft coverage. Who do the Canucks select?
Though the 27-year-old has played just 74 NHL games, all on the questionable New York Islanders blue line, he may be just the type of value player Vancouver needs to seek out to shore up one of its few weaknesses without fundamentally compromising what makes them a Presidents' Trophy-winning team.
If even a struggling team like the Islanders can enjoy a possession advantage with top-four minutes entrusted to him, then Reese ought to be an ideal low-risk upgrade over Ballard, Alberts and Rome on Vancouver's third unit.
