Canucks Sign Mikael Samuelsson

The Vancouver Canucks have signed Mikael Samuelsson to a 3 year deal at a rumored 2.5 million a year. Samuelsson, last season in Detroit put up 19 goals and 21 assists playing on the 3rd and 4th lines and manning the point on the Power-play.  He play’s on the right wing and has previously played with the Sedin’s in international play at the World Championships and at the Olympics. Could that be were Alain Vigneault put’s him and at the same time re-unites Alex Burrows with Ryan Kesler or does Samuelsson play on the 3rd or 4th line? Hard to say right now I guess.
