Franz Liszt Posted July 17, 2013 Share Posted July 17, 2013 - Fits under salary cap - Helps team going forward, depth wise - Brackets [##] are number of contracts after each move - Read end notes as well, please In order from most to least likely: 1. Re-Sign Tanev & Weise Tanev: 2 years @ 3.25 million contract. $1.625 cap hit Weise: 1 year @ $750,000 two way contract. $150,000 at AHL This is the main priority. Primarily for re-signing Tanev, Weise is 50/50 at this point.  2. To MTL: Yann Sauvé & Darren Archibald To VAN: MTL 2014 3rd A way to gain a mid-draft pick for next year while relieving 2 contracts.  3. Sign Bo Horvat & Hunter Shinkaruk to their ELC's They will eventually sign... I hope.  4. Re-sign Jordan Schroeder to a 1 year @ $750,000 two way contract. $200,000 at AHL He will help our center depth with experience on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th lines.  5. Sign Mark Fistric to 2 years @1.85 million contract. $0.925 cap hit Former Vancouver Giant, upgrade on Alberts and he's still young.  6. Sign Colton Gillies to 1 year @ $625,000 two way contract. $125,000 at AHL Local kid, hasn't lived up to potential, would help depth in AHL and NHL.  7. Sign Steve Montador to 2 years @ $1.65 million contract, two way for 1st year at $325,000 at AHL Experienced RHD, also local guy. 33 but still has lots left. Concussion issues, but adds good depth.  8. Sign Brad Boyes to 1 year @ $2 million contract Unlikely at this point, but he can play 2nd line LW and also 3C. Versatile player.  9. Sign Nikolay Zherdev to 1 year @ 1 million Had most success under Tortorella with a 58 point season. Pure sniper. Can play 1st-4th line RW.  10. To FLA: Alex Friesen / Steven Anthony To VAN: 2014 7th Relieving a contract.  11. Sign Gilbert Brule to 1 year @ $750,000 two way contract. $200,000 at AHL Center depth. We obviously need center depth.  ROSTERS TO START THE SEASON: Vancouver Canucks: Sedin Sedin Kassian/Zherdev Burrows Kesler Zherdev/Boyes Booth Brule Boyes/Kassian Higgins Richardson Hansen Sestito, Santorelli Hamhuis Bieksa Edler Tanev Garrison Corrado/Montador Fistric, Weber Luongo & Lack/Ericsson Utica Comets: Jensen Gaunce/Brule Ferriero Gillies Brule/Schroeder Weise Defazio Lain Mallet Anthony/Friesen Grenier Blomstrand Pelletier Andersson Montador/Corrado Tommernes Polasek McEneny Biega Mullen, Blain Ericsson/Lack & Cannata ENDNOTES: - The reason for so many 2-way contracts, is for injury depth. - Pick and 4 forwards, 3 defenders and 1 goalie that could go on IR - Let's say Booth, Richardson, Zherdev & Sestito for forwards - Corrado, Edler & Weber for defenders - Lack for goaltenders - All the players that replace the NHL spot are all on either an ELC or 2-way deal ROSTER AFTER 7 INJURIES Sedin Sedin Kassian Burrows Kesler Boyes Higgins Brule Hansen Gillies/Jensen Santorelli Weise Hamhuis Bieksa Garrison Tanev Fistric Montador Luongo & Ericsson/Cannata Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
