#3: Jason Dickinson
Jason Dickinson was brought in to be a shutdown third-line centre and to help out on the penalty kill. He did pretty well in those roles with the Dallas Stars.
With the Canucks, it hasn’t been a fit. Out of all the offseason acquisitions, he has been the most disappointing.
Dickinson has spent more time on the wing than at centre and defensively hasn’t looked good. On the penalty kill, he looks lost. (Especially under Travis Green) Dickinson has also struggled in the faceoff circle all season.
Dickinson was brought in to bring defensive responsibility on the Canucks third line but hasn’t done that at all. He is constantly losing the puck and being caught flat-footed defensively.
While offence wasn’t expected out of him, five goals and six assists for 11 points isn’t a lot.
It would be tough for the Canucks to move on from Dickinson and his 2.65 million cap hit which he carries for two more seasons.
