Well after Webers offer sheet I think the Canucks should stay away from big names(unless we draft them) and like the A's moneyball start doing "Moneypuck" I would start figuring out how to "catagorize" players but I suck at math lol. Is the any Canuck fans with wicked math skills who could start a Moneypuck forum with a list of categories ..i.e. ppg%, +- , from a team persperctive and then we could all have fun seeing who meets our needs. Because I for one never want to see a 100 million contract here in Van unless its a the 2nd comming if ya know what I mean
I just looked it up on ESPN. There have been over $1 BILLION dollars in contracts handed out since June 1 of 2012. I get how in a salary cap era you need to be efficient with the money you have available, but it feels absolutely redundant. This is also why the lawyers are duking it out big time right now.
F@$K it. Lets go bowling.

This is a very interesting topic. My view is the Canucks are a large enough market to sign players "Who want to be here" at reasonible contracts. However, this market is not big enough to compete with the larger markets under the current cap system. I was sick to my staomach when I heard about the Parise,Suter, and now Weber signing's. The Canucks simply cannot afford to compete in a market where contracts are being thrown around this way. As I said already, the team has the resources to compete in a fair market system, but not with the way things are currently.
If the new CBA cures the problems of long term contracts that are heavily front loaded and can sustain a fair market system, then the Canucks can compete with the LA's,NY's, Philly's and Pittsburgh's of the NHL.
Nashville matched that ridiculous contract they certainly don't have as much dough as the canucks do

Statistically, there is a higher chance of getting an NHL'er if you draft older players in the later rounds, but not so much for the earlier rounds unless their growth has been phenomenal.
