Hear me out.

According to Cap Geek, the Canucks will sit at $60,403,333 which leaves the Canucks just under $4m to resign or fill the void left by: Malhotra, Raymond, Higgins, Lapierre, Weise, Ebbett, Vandermeer, Volpatti, Alberts, Tanev and Barker.

If by chance we cannot trade Luongo I have a feeling they will use the buy out on him, but thats not the point of this post.

Looking at the other options for buyout (reasonable options):

Keith Ballard (2 years remaining at $4.2m cap hit) - it's this posters opinion that we are paying too much for Ballards production, but its not a contract we signed him to. He is on the bottom pairing and doesn't get the same trust as the top 4, and it is such an overpayment for a 6th defenseman.

David Booth (2 years remaining at $4.25m cap hit) - another project for us to regain his skill by pairing him with Kesler, but with his injury problems this is too much money to put into a top 6 forward.

(by the way, when I am noting their contract this is as of the 2013-2014 season, including said season)

Those two contracts are easily targeted in my opinion for Compliance buyouts, but at the same time, one more season with those contracts aren't that bad and is manageable. I would like to throw a wild card in there and get the opinion of Canucks fans.

Alex Burrows. (4 years remaining at $4.5m cap hit) - I absolutely love Burrows, and this contract was a reward for his hard work + him taking a hometown discount. He is our top line guy but this contract is far too much for his output in my opinion. Zack Kassian has stepped up and will eventually take on more shifts with the Sedins. Honestly, Burrows at $4.5m cap hit will handicap the team going forward.

What do you think?

I have heard Booth will be a buyout, As for Ballard, there is a market for him and he is tradeable...

What you speak is heresy. Your internet priviliges are now revoked.

I think we might be able to trade both Ballard and Luongo this off season (at the deadline if we're out of the play off picture). If not then we should buy out Ballard and Booth and keep Luongo. Goalies will help us more then picks or the $1M in cap space right now.

That being said if Ballard or Booth play like a $4M player we should consider keeping them and dumping Luongo.

I think this is a question which will best be answered after either the assumed Luongo deal goes through (whenever that is), or after the season is over and the team has been able to assess the quality of play of these two guys.

I imagine MG hasn't finished tinkering with this team. I would expect a trade or two once he sees how the team is doing and how key players are progressing with their rehab. This team could look very different from now come the playoffs. It will certainly have some new players by the start of next season.

i agree with the previous 2 posts, but speaking completely hypothetically on the assumption we end the season with our current roster.

I would've assumed it was the other way around.

This has been an ongoing discussion ever since the buyouts were announced.

GMMG is WAY too classy, and smart of a GM to buy out Alexander Burrows, especially after just re-signing him. That is way below him and I am thankful for that.

Booth, Ballard, Higgins, Edler, all buyout worthy

Trade: Raymond, Lapierre, Weise, Luongo


Fire MG, this cycle of ruining us for years and hand cuffing us has to change.
