Why the Canucks might want him: Tanner Glass is a player that...

Chris Mason has been signed by the Nashville Predators to a one year deal worth $1,250,000, according to Kevin Allen of USA Today. Mason will be the back-up to Pekka Rinne for the 2012-13 season. To add onto the signing, history was made today in the Predators' front office. Mason is the first ever player to be signed by the Predators on July 1. Here is the tweet.
TSN’s Bob McKenzie reports the Winnipeg Jets have signed former New Jersey Devils winger Alexei Ponikarovsky to a one-year, $1.8 million contract.
The Jets have been all but silent in the Free Agent Frenzy Day also known as Canada Day. The first news came as the Penguiins signed fan favourite Tanner Glass for 2 years at 1.1 millin per year. Then later it was goalie Chris Mason who took a 1 year deal with the Predators for 1.25 per year.
How have the Jets responded?
They agreed to terms with Derek Meech on a two way...
