So in all of the posts I have been reading on this board since Roy's acquisition about Roy being a rental, or we can't keep both Booth and Roy etc, etc I felt it prudent to centralize this specific discussion lest someone not see all the numbers line up.

Here goes:



Sedin (6.100) / Sedin (6.100) / Burrows (4.500) 16.700
Booth (4.250) / Roy (5.000) / Kesler (5.000) 14.250
Jensen (0.894) / Schroeder (1.025) / Kassian (0.870) 2.789
Higgins (2.500) / Gaunce (1.088) / Hansen (1.350) 4.938

38.677

Edler (5.000) / Tanev (1.200) 6.200
Hamhuis (4.500) / Bieksa (4.600) 9.100
Garrison (4.600) / Corrado (0.600) 5.200

20.500

Schneider (4.000)
Lack (0.750)

4.750

Cap Ceiling 2013-2014 = 64.300
Cap Hit 2013-2014 = 63.927

Remaining Cap Room: 0.373

The above assumes the following roster moves:

Player raises:

Pre-Negotiated
  • Alexandre Burrows: 4.500 AAV
  • Alexander Edler: 5.000 AAV
  • Chris Higgins 2.500 AAV
Proposed
  • Derek Roy: 5.000 AAV, Term 5 years (4.500 Year 1, 4.500 Year 2, 5.000 Year 3, 5.000 Year 4, 6.000 Year 5)
  • Jordan Schroeder: 1.025 AAV, Term 3 years (100% salary match, RFA Qualification)
  • Chris Tanev: 1.200 AAV, Term 3 years (1.00 Year 1, 1.200 Year 2, 1.400 Year 3)

Players on ELC:
  • Nicklas Jensen
  • Zack Kassian
  • Brendan Gaunce
  • Frank Corrado
Let walk as UFA:
  • Mason Raymond
  • Maxim Lapierre (or re-sign to a short 1-2 year contract worth what he's getting now if Gaunce is not ready)
Salary dumps for picks/prospects or amnesty buyouts:
  • Roberto Luongo (5.330 AAV)
  • Keith Ballard (4.250 AAV)
Gillis has a lot of flexibility when it comes to next season, I would be content with either of the following scenarios:
  • Cap dump Luongo to Florida for picks and prospects, buyout Ballard
  • Cap dump Luongo to Florida for picks and prospects, cap dump Ballard for a late pick
  • Buyout Luongo and Ballard if no one bites at all
  • Keep Luongo, trade Schneider for an impact forward for the T6 with equal or less salary coming back (Schneider for Couturier + Picks), Cap dump/buyout Ballard
I don't believe that Gillis is willing to give up on Booth just yet, not when he's suffered exceedingly bad luck every time he appears to be rounding the corner and putting together a complete game.

I also highly doubt Gillis would have given up KConn and a 2nd in a good draft if he wasn't certain he would be able to re-sign Roy.

With all players healthy and playing to potential, this is a very scary, skilled roster from top to bottom.

There's a lot of assumptions in there. What if the young guys aren't ready?

Also, I'd rather have Raymond at 2.5-3.5 than have Booth at 4.25

Booth will need to go if you want to keep Roy.

On the bright side, chicago didn't get to keep their cup team. ;)

I'm fine with the idea of a cap, but the gap between the floor and ceiling needs to be larger imo.

The only assumptions in this are if Jensen and Gaunce are ready. Jensen almost made the team last year, and didn't due to depth, having plenty of cap space and the team wanting him to develop a bit more. Gaunce is physically ready to play in the league and defensively should be fine, especially if he has such defensively responsible line mates as Higgins and Hansen.

Even if Gaunce isn't ready, or they want him to play a full year in the AHL, Lapierre can be re-signed (or a similar 4C) for what he's making now (Gaunce and whatever replacement have 1:1 contracts more or less).

Booth doesn't have to go anywhere for Roy to stay, he wants term and wasn't able to get it in Dallas because of the shaky ownership situation; they didn't want to commit long term dollars.

Raymond has had a bounce back year, and he's set to hit the UFA market. Someone will overpay (4-5 M AAV) for his services on the open market, I'd rather have Booth with term @ 4.250.

Why can't we have 3 legit top 6 centers. Look at teams like the Kings with Richards, Carter, Kopitar, Stoll etc. or a team like Flyers that are always loaded with top 6 centers. It seems like our team is the only one that should have 2 top 6 centers and a bunch of scraps so when the injury bug hits, we will be left with Ebett or pinizotto centering our 2nd line.

Gillis kept Luongo because he thinks he is going to cash in prior to the draft.

That marks one full year where Gillis has tried to dump his contract.

If I were the owner there is no way I am paying out Ballard and Luo just so the GM can continue on.

It is now the draft or bust for Gillis. Don't be surprised if the owners express their opinion should Gillis blow it again.

Honestly I'd rather let Booth go and have a bit more depth with players like Raymond and Lappiere. I just don't see Booth getting back to his old scoring ways when he was with FLA and he is an injury prone player.

Running with a 20 man roster is never a good idea imo. No reserve players at all and no cap room to sub in a player without someone going on injured reserve? I don't think that is realistic. And I know it is not good management.

The issue with the Canucks is too many big contracts for under-producing or under-utilized players. It is possible to ice the lineup you suggest and I applaud you for taking the time to put it together. But it is not a realistic solution considering we really have no one else to fill in or take over if even one of these players gets a day to day injury or plays inconsistently.

The Canucks are in serious cap trouble unless they start moving some players out for less expensive alternatives.

I don't think having gaunce play 4th line minutes helps his NHL development out at all. I'd rather have him in the minors and Lappy. Also higgins at signing 2.5 extension to play on the 4th line doesn't make sense either, as much as I like booth I think it would be better to offload his contract and fill in some of are other holes.

florida will not take luongo without dumping a crap contract back on us ...they dont have the money .. luongo is set to make more money next year than all 3 of their goalies made this year.... if luongo goes to florida we are going to end up with jovo or campbell... and gillis and the coaching staff didnt think Kconn was as good as us fans think he is or else they wouldnt have went out and signed barker when most of us believed kconn could easily be playing over barker ballard and alberts and never got his chance. so as we might see it as gillis gave up alot to get Roy im sure gillis doesnt see it that way.

Ill never understand peoples want to keep Booth around... especially over Raymond. Booth has been completely useless since being acquired. We keep hearing about his size and speed, but hes not big at all, rarely plays big, and we've seen him use his speed to create chances a total of maybe 8 or 9 times in his entire tenure here. Raymond on the other hand, uses his speed several times a game to create chances, and is one of our best defensive forwards that can also play the PK. When healthy, Raymond has proven hes a top 6 forward here on a very deep team. Finally, Raymond can play with almost anyone on this team.. Kesler, Burrows, Hansen particularly.. I cant see Gillis being stupid enough to give up Raymond with what hes shown this year.

He's going to be unrestricted, not that it wouldn't be a good idea to have three good centers, it's just that he is unlikely to choose vancouver if he's getting third line mins.

After making it to game 7 of the SCF everyone should have stayed. Not too sure what Gillis was thinking letting people walk after that run instead of trying to repeat.

I understand some players wanted more money, but that's why you negotiate. Look at Ehrhoff, goes to the finals and leaves for more money instead of another shot with the same group of guys.

Ok, let's just keep both and hope all the young guys can make and stay on the team, plus have next to no injuries.

Since that is so unlikely to happen, and since MG wouldn't go such a risky route, either Booth or Roy will be gone.

Even if Gaunce isn't ready, or they want him to play a full year in the AHL, Lapierre can be re-signed (or a similar 4C) for what he's making now (Gaunce and whatever replacement have 1:1 contracts more or less).

Booth doesn't have to go anywhere for Roy to stay, he wants term and wasn't able to get it in Dallas because of the shaky ownership situation; they didn't want to commit long term dollars.

Raymond has had a bounce back year, and he's set to hit the UFA market. Someone will overpay (4-5 M AAV) for his services on the open market, I'd rather have Booth with term @ 4.250.


Corrado too. And even if Raymond wanted 4M, I'd much rather keep him and trade Booth as opposed to letting him walk.

Why do people keep insisting we keep Booth? He is no where near worth the 4.250/yr. Just get rid of his contract, and use that money on someone that is more of a guarentee, rather than someone who MIGHT.

I'm looking forward to seeing Roy, but I think it's a little too soon to be saying we need to ship off proven Canucks to keep him. Let's wait a bit and see. Even he hasn't said for sure he wants to stay here. Everyone just needs a little time to test out the fit.

Even still, why would you keep Booth but get rid of Raymond? Raymond will likely be cheaper but with more point production. I like Booth's game this year and I fully expect him to continue to improve when he returns, but so far he can't find the back of the net with a treasure map. He needed 2 shots and an assist to get an empty netter! Raymond is the way better option.
