Canucks trade Ryan Shannon to Senators for Lawrence Nycholat

A strange deal of sorts for the Canucks. I guess you can never have enough spare defencemen in Vancouver seeing how they get injured all the time! That or Gillis is going to trade one of them.
I thought Ryan Shannon was going to push for a spot with Vancouver after they had signed him for 1 year back in July to a $605,000 deal. He played in 27 games for the Nucks last season, scoring 5 goals and 13 points. But none of his goals were more memorable than this controversial spinaroonie shootout goal.
So who the hell is this Lawrence Nycholat guy?
-a 29 year-old defenceman. Born in Calgary.
-wasn't drafted
-will make $600,000 this season
-about 6 feet tall and 200 pounds
-has played in 31 NHL games with the Rangers, Capitals and Senators, scoring 2 goals and 8 points.-Had a decent year with the Binghamton Senators last season, scoring 12 goals and 49 points in 77 games.

Best of luck on his new butthead team. I hate Ottawa. Shannon was a little sparkplug alright. I wish he would have stuck around. Gillis has greater things in mind I guess.
