im hopng that if vancouver can unload a few salaries with trades.
say bobby luo for say gunnarson bozak and a first frees 2.5 cap space
mason raymond and alberts for patrice cormier and a fourth rounder from jets frees 2.7mill
keith ballard for 2nd rounder and matt martin from islanders 3.2 cap space freed
wed have 10.6 cap space this yr plus 5 mill extra with kesler on long term injury.
signs arnott 2yr 1.5 per cam barker 1yr 750 k
gillis at deadline could open up the purse strings and grab one bad contract at a cheap price
say campbell in florida say a 3rd or 4th round pick basically these players could ge a rental and bought out next yr would help us get over hump to win cup do u think canucks will try something like this its risky but could be good times

once keslers healthy

sedin sedin burrows
arnott kesler booth
higgins lapps hansen
martin bozak manny
kassian/cormier

hamhuis bieska
edler garrison
gunnarson campbell
sauve barker

schneider
backup whoever gillis finds

would open up gillis ability to get a cheaper team on paper for next yr manny will probably not be resigned if gillis doesnt extend edler he may me traded signing a good sniper like iginla or perry in offseason could be a possibility hopefully

i wanna hear wat you guys think gills should do

Have you ever heard of capital letters?

I don't think much of that would work, nor would we acquire a buy out player to use as a rental.

If this team lets go of Sang he will burn this team next year.

Also, no amnesty buyouts until the summer of 2013.

MIke Gillis doesn't like the idea of rental players. He probably won't sign players just to buy them out, plus it gives you a bad reputation and people would choose not to sign with you after a while.
