As per farhan corrado is in tonight which means one year is burned off his entry level contract. If we don't get out of the first round, this has to be the stupidest decision with a team already entering cap troubles.

Ahh, well, can't do anything about it, but I also hear Ballard's in. Is that true?

Not 100% yet but might be in instead of Alberts or play foward.

"One Year Burned?"

I thought this topic was about another year with AV.

Saw the tweet too, but was wondering if playoff games count.

In all honesty though, even if they do count and a year is burned, if he is the best player for that spot then it shouldn't matter. People on here gripe enough that young players don't get a shot to play here so now people will gripe when they do?

Should just put Ballard in for Corrado and don't burn a year. Ballard is as good or better, but AV knows more than me I guess

He's a much better option than Ballard and Barker so i don't really have a problem with this. Go with your best available players and worry about the rest of that stuff later on.

Besides Bieksa only other right hand D. Canucks are down 2 games. Gotta play the guys who give the team the best chance to win. Stupid to complain about a year burned off.

As most good GM's say you can't be narrow minded with your organization. You have to be thinking of the long term and short term success of the organization. Is Corrado really a huge improvement over Ballard? I like Corrado as a player and believe he is deserving of being in the lineup. Impact wise during the game I haven't seen enough to justify burning the year over putting in Ballard/Barker.

I'd rather throw Ballard on so we can still have more space with Corrado earning ELC money next year.

I heard Tanev is also making the trip, have they announced if he is back skating at all?

Who cares, his second contract will come cheaper then if we wait an extra year.

Why do people think it`s a bad thing?

It's just one less year he has to prove himself and increase the value of his second contract.

Yep, and in all likelihood he'll still spend some time in the AHL next year, much like Tanev did last season (even though by all accounts he looked ready). Then in the final year of his ELC, he'll finally become a regular, and we'll renew him up for a reasonable price. Its not at all a bad thing to burn one year of the ELC, as his NHL path looks to be shaping up similar to Tanev's.

I said earlier this is an IQ test for the Canucks management, I'm not surprised they failed it. We need MG and AV gone they are screwing up the team.

You are so far off base.... In the cap world the entrey lev deals are like gold. The cap is also going down, this is a short sight move. Like you said worry about the rest of the stuff later on?

Because sometimes that depth isn't good enough.

Overstating the importance of the year of ELC.
Savings are great if you get a young player playing like a 5M dollar man, on an ELC.
Savings are there.

He'll get a cheap bridge contract.
"Asset Management" is completely overrated on these boards.
Hockey Management-play the best players available.

It should be the biggest concern because the playoffs are done. That was a wast of a year I can't believe Canucks management are such fools. They may know they are gone if they can't win the round and just don't care about the future?
