LTIR, as these guys get healthy it puts the team over the cap more and more, big trouble with fines and reduces the team's next year's cap upper limit. Players have to go on waivers.

Yea and Stone was supposed to be out 4 weeks with a wrist injury and he just said its now healed after 3 months. Things don't always go as planned.

Plus people forget a new very very lucrative TV deal will be signed as well and under the circumstances of covid, it might be a lot more than projected which with other sports renewing it was a huge increase already so the cap might just jump by a lot IF it's negotiated correctly but the NHL is rumoured to be shopping around a split between the big media players but they need to be careful about it..

Ferlund told JB he was feeling “well”. Looking like we may have this guy for the playoffs. 
 

A healthy Canucks team is a high level competitive one. Let’s not forget how they came out of the gate like a freight train. Wasn’t until these injuries started piling up, did they start to stumble.

Now you know why Benning played musical LTIR all season.

 

It's 100% a cap work around for the playoffs.

 

Many teams have done it, it's not a secret or conspiracy theory, just putting it out there.


Also, I expect this loophole to be addressed in the next CBA, so enjoy it while Benning's got his finger in the yarn.

I'm not so sure JB played the "loophole"

 

Ferland reported to Utica and if my not very good memory serves me correct he had symptoms almost immediately and either only played 1 period of a single game then went home?

 

Hopefully the extra few months have helped, hopefully he can make it through this without any symptoms from just playing hockey. Might be the smart decision to just sit him out regardless and hope by Christmas or whenever next years training camp will be he will have had even longer to rest and recoupe.

 

Either way, wish Ferland the best, but I expect no fighting from him for a while. Hopefully he is still able to hit and doesn't turn into Taylor "Pylon" Pyatt...

Don't think he was looking to use LTIR.  He simply had no choice to ice a complete roster with injuries mounting.

 

Now with the cap likely staying flat, having used LTIR has created a bonus overage of at least 1.7M.   Not ideal with limited cap space next season.  Using LTIR is a real nuisance and some teams have even paid good assets to get those contract off their books, but sometimes there's just no choice.
