Why don't we just go after and sign Hannan already?

 

Signing Scott Hannan doesn't mean we can't try and trade for anyone. I think Jack Hillen is a road we aren't exploring, if Garth wanted to sign him, I think he would have brought him back already, and arguably Hannan is a better candidate for the top 4.

Hannan will bring defenisve security to our top 4, flexibility with our shutdown pair(we can move A-mac or Hamonic to play with Mark Streit if we want, and I'd suggest it). Before last year, Hannan has also been given lots of PK time (imagine strengthening that even more? lol) and really tough assignments. Doing that in Colorado, he's averaged 22min/gm for 3 straight years playing against tough competition in a shutdown role. He can play that role really well apparently. And he brings even more size to our blueline at a big 6'1'' 225lbs.

Sure he is 32, but I think we can rely on him for a year or 2 taking tough defensive roles (especially since his style isn't overly damaging. He does block a lot of shots, but he doesn't throw many hits). I think we should sign him for security/depth at minimum because he does solidfy our top 4 if Garth fails looking for that trade. What's the worst that happens? Mottau is waived?

Thoughts? It's not like this stops garth from making that move for a top 4.
