Welcome Willie Mitchell -- To help replace Ed Jovanovski, the Vancouver Canucks have signed free agent defenceman Willie Mitchell to a four-year deal which will pay him $3.5 million per season.

Mitchell was a +19 last season. The knock on him is his foot speed. Suggestions are he'll never be a +19 on a team other than the Jacques Lemaire ruled Minny Wild.

Still Mitchell is a BC boy. Welcome home Willie.
