Big signing coming up?

117 posts in this topic

Is it just me or are the Canucks dumping salary to prepare for a trade or signing?

Ryan Parent - $925,000

Aaron Rome - $750,000

Andrew Ebbett - $525,000

Marc Andre Gragnani - $550,000

Mike Duco - $550,000

Victor Oreskovitch - $605,000

$3.9 Million in cap space. Now if they choose to let Salo walk (might be a bad idea) that adds another 2 million. $5.9 million in cap space.

A significant signing/trade or two is coming down the pike. I can feel it. Or maybe it's just gas.

They are shedding contracts. Without these players we are futher removed from the 50 contract limit (a good thing).

I think they are going to pursue Salo for 1 more year.

The only player that will set everything in motion shortly is Zach Parise, and to a lesser degree Bobby Ryan/Nash.

Maybe its money for Burrows? Isn't he due for an extension?

I don't think it has anything to do with cap space. Those are small contracts.

I think it may have more to do with the 50 contract limit and the limited value those guys brought to the team.

Gillis cut down our 9 defence system (Hammer, Juice, Ballard, Salo, Tanev, Edler, Rome, Alberts, Grags) to a 7 defence system (minus grabs and rome) Must be a defenceman coming.

Not going forward with MA Gragnani does not sound like a solid plan, wonder what is up?

To make a pitch for Suter. I doubt we land him but I bet Gillis puts in a serious offer

Betcha they lock up Schnieds in the next 48 hours before a possible labour strike.

Only half of that cleared space ($2M of the $3.9M) was on our books for the big club last year. The rest were on the Wolves so that doesn't point to anything particularly, other than they didn't impress enough to be brought back.

They are allowed to go over the cap in the summer by a good chunk (what is it, 10% or something like that?) but have to be cap compliant after training camp. That means that would have room with our roster from last year to sign Parise or Suter and still not be in trouble with the league.

Most teams are aiming for under at this point with uncertainty around how the new CBA will go, but we'd still be able to make moves after the fact if we do make some big signings.
