Brandon and Brad

From canucks.com:

Vancouver Canucks Senior Vice-President and General Manager Dave Nonis announced today that the Canucks have signed centre Brandon Reid. In keeping with club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Reid, 25, played the 2005-06 season with Swiss club Rapperswil-Jona tallying 16 goals, 18 assists (16-18-34) and 16 penalty minutes through 44 games played. Through 10 career NHL games with the Canucks, Reid has recorded six points (2-4-6). Reid made nine post season appearances with Vancouver during the 2002-03 Playoffs recording one assist.
Reid's TSN scouting report:

Assets: Possesses excellent vision and hockey sense. Is a brilliant skater and tenacious forechecker. Can put up solid numbers if given enough ice time.
Flaws: Will never be big, so he must continue to work on his strength and conditioning in order to thrive in the NHL.
Career potential: Third line forward.
They weren't done there. From moosehockey.com, they also signed center Brad Moran, an Abbotsford native who also played in the Swiss Elite League last season.

Moran's TSN scouting report:

Assets: Is a solid playmaking center and an effective offensive contributor at the minor-league level.
Flaws: Doesn't have a lot of size and isn't a great skater. He needs to put up great numbers because the rest of his game is average at best.
Career potential: Reserve center
Don't worry Canucks fans. I doubt this is Dave Nonis' way of addressing the team's gap at center.
