The Canucks continued to make small moves to shore up their fringe-NHL/AHL depth today, adding a couple of depth forwards in Cal O'Reilly (yes, he is related to Ryan - Cal is Ryan's older brother), and former Texas Star Dustin Jeffrey. Neither really look to have significant NHL upside and are probably nothing more than moves to strengthen what was a poor Utica Comets team last year, but both have had a cup of coffee in the NHL so we felt it's at least worth mentioning them. Read past the jump for a quick look at Vancouver's two newest forwards.

VAN signs D Bobby Sanguinetti $600,000 if in NHL— Elliotte Friedman (@FriedgeHNIC) July 1, 2014
After Jim Benning landed his guy, he went off the board with his second ever free agent acquisition, picking up former Carolina Hurricanes D Bobby Sanguinetti for a basically insignificant amount of money. Just who the hell is Bobby Sanguinetti? Is this at all a meaningful signing? Will he even play in the NHL?

With basically the worst case scenario unfolding with the 36th overall pick and a desire to play a more "meat-and-potatoes" game, we were preparing for the worst. Instead, we at the Army were pleasantly surprised to see that the Canucks opted to trade the 50th overall pick to the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for 22-year old Linden Vey.
And yes, a former Medicine Hat Tiger named Linden just swung a deal for a former Medicine Hat Tiger named Linden. Read past the jump.
