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.

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

They both suck

Actually Parent sucks, Grags is young and will have to develop his defensive game before he can play in the NHL consitently

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.

Only for next season. There's no way to tell which way it will go after the new CBA.

If Justin Schultz signs here his cap hit will be $3.8 million.

The thing about Schultz is that money will not be the issue here. Every team that makes an offer on him will do so knowing it will have to absorb a $3.8 million salary cap hit next season - $925,000 in base salary and signing bonus, $850,000 in ‘A’ level bonuses (for achievements such as scoring 10 goals, 25 assists, 40 points, 0.49 points per game and others) and $2 million in ‘B’ level bonuses (for elite performance such as finishing among the top 10 defensemen in goals, assists, points or ice time or being a
finalist for the Norris Trophy) – on a two-year deal.

Simply put they are not renewing contracts of players they feel they are better without and could use an upgrade on. This also lowers the amount of contracts the team currently has which doesn't hurt either. Nothing about thses moves signifies that a big signing is coming.

Well something did. They (Toronto) drafted the #1 prospect in the draft (their opinion) with the 5th overall pick.

So Eklund was. . . right?

My god.

Eklund was right!

Not extending Gragnani is a questionable decision. Thought he could've been deployed in offensive situations well. His fenwick and corsi numbers were not bad. We played him at the end of last season so he could be an RFA. MG said he qualified him.

So Hodgson trade becomes Hodgson/Sulzer for Kassian. Kassian better turn out well.

And it didn't happen ON draft day, but they did make a pretty big trade picking up JVR
