Markstrom ($ 1,400,000) --------------------------------------------------- Estimated 2015 Cap: $ 71,000,000.00 23 Player Cap Used: $ 69,744,167.00 Retained Cap: + $ 800,000.00 Cap Space Available: $ 955,833.00 Trades Tanev + Shinkaruk to Columbus: Rychel + 8oa + 34oa Kassian + Corrado + Jensen to NJ: Larsson + 41oa Bieksa to Pittsburgh: 46oa + [Van 2016 3rd round pick(cond. on re-sign)] Higgins to Washsington: 62oa Lack to Carolina: 35oa + Car 2016 4th round pick Draft 8oa: Provorov D, 23oa: White C/RW, 34oa: Larsson D, 35oa Dunn D, 41oa: Roslovic C/RW, 46oa: Dergachyov C/LW, 62oa: Korostelev LW/RW, 114oa: Reddekopp D, 144oa: Olhaver LW/C,174oa: Hill G Prospects 2015 draft class, Rychel, Virtanen, McCann, Gaunce, Cassels, Grenier, Tryamkin, Pedan, Hutton, Subban, Demko, Eriksson, Canata Columbus feels they are a RD short of being a real contender in the east Tanev gives them that player though it will cost them the 8oa for this calibre of RD, Benning knows Canucks are few years away from contending with this move he gets the pick and player that he wants, his vision is starting to come together. New Jersey has a slew of young defenders but not many forwards especially on the wing, Larsson and Gelinas are similar Dman though NJ is slightly higher on Gelinas so are willing to move Larsson, Kassian will instantly be their top RW player (until they draft Rantanen) he'll slot onto the 1st line with Henrique and produce. Kassian has shown he can play top 6 when given a chance, 2yrs ago he started to get his game together, last year he played 1st half with injuries plus WD didn't really believe in his youngsters, 2nd half WD showed more belief in youngsters, Kassian started to get healthy got top 6 playing time, started to produce before season ended and showed that he can be the pfwd everyone thought he can be, Kass will be healthy and play with vengeance and show Buff and Van what they lost. Jensen has no place with the Canucks unfortunately in NJ he will be on the 3rd line and get a real chance to show that he belongs in the NHL, Corrado also gets a chance to show what he can do and with NJs young D core all with grow together to bring NJ back to what they where before. Short term win for Canucks longer term win/win for both. Carolina doesn't believe in either of their goalies and are looking for a new stopper, Lack is their man. He will split '15 with Ward before taking over f/t in '16 when Ward wont be re-signed, Khubodin will be traded to Arizona for one of their 2016 3rd round picks Bieksa has been a member on CDC for 10 years he has read all the proposals and threads about him, he can't take it anymore and wants to go to Steele-town where underdogs are appreciated Washington also believes they are a gritty forward away from getting back to Conf. Final and beyond, they will lose Fehr (didn't know they could get him for cheap) and don't want to overspend on a FA, Higgins steps right in, is their top PKer and helps them to the Conf. final. Higgins believes Washington is closer to a Cup than Canucks, sadly they aren't and fall short. Benning has made a lot of moves, he needs to field a team to make the playoffs each year to keep the fans happy and money in Aquilini's pocket. Benning sticks to his play, he has re-stocked the Canucks prospect pool to one of the best, now signs 4 youngish players from short to medium term contracts, with these signings the Canucks can run 4 lines effectively which will keep them competitive and relevant. Each year as contracts expire a youngster or two comes in and learns the ropes from the Veterans(Detroit model perfected). In 3 years time the Canucks are back to Cup Favourites and win a few Cups with their new Core, while Kesler is still looking for a team that can get him back to the finals.
