granpappy Posted March 9, 2015 Share Posted March 9, 2015 things could work out really well for us in the next few years. there are many young, up and coming local nhl'ers at various levels of development and as each year goes by, they are each heading toward a ufa status. it is like compounding interest; in the next 3-4-5 years we will have the opportunity to woo some of them back home. local boys playing for the local team. paul kariya didn't want to but i suspect in this latest crop of budding stars, sentiments may be different and there may be an opportunity for us to sign some of these fellas. as for cap space, looking several years ahead, we will be free of most if not all of our current contracts for what amounts to end of career players thus meaning we will have the luxury of plenty of cap room. whether jb continues to draft local kids or not, we may be in for one of the most unique canuck dynasties in our history, a local rep team so to speak. hoping/lokking forward to: change is coming a johhny canuck jersey for these boys to wear would be nice also Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
