Canucks to Sign Sven Butenschon?

Sportsnet and Mojo radio are reporting that the Vancouver Canucks have signed defenseman Sven Butenschon. Butenschon is a big guy, 6'5" 215lbs, however he has a reputation as being a soft player. While being a solid skater for his size, he is pretty much a complete zero on the offensive side of the game.

Butenschon is basically a poor mans version of Marek Malik. He will likely be fighting for a job at training camp and is by no means guaranteed to make the team.
