Vancouver Canucks GM Jim Benning sees a lot of value in what Luca Sbisa has brought to the team.
Benning signed Sbisa to a three-year, $10.8 million contract extension on Wednesday. "In this division, L.A., San Jose and Anaheim are big, heavy teams and he plays his best in those heavy games," Benning said of Sbisa. "He separates forwards from puck and has the strength. And we burned two years of him being a UFA. I feel it's a good deal for him and the team. He's kind of an old, throwback defenseman and he's showing more confidence with the puck skating out of his zone and is making good decisions with the puck. He's getting good confidence." Sbisa doesn't do much offensively, but he does have 149 hits and 127 blocked shots in 2014-15. It's worth noting that he looks bad from an analytics perspective as the Canucks tend to do significantly better when it comes to possessing the puck when he's off the ice. Apr 9 - 11:38 AM
