Markstrom wouldn't have the book on Loui since Loui hasn't had a book in 4 years.

 

Big brain play

They should convince Loui that Marky still plays for us and that Calgary's goal is our goal... the shots will come then.

ImConfused as well after hearing this news.

I thought Vintage Canuck knew everything!

 

It's just a cost-saving measure; Canucks have to pay Bailey more when he's (a scratch) on the active roster:

 

Taxi Squad Shuffle: 01/15/21 (prohockeyrumors.com)

 

  • The Canucks have recalled Loui Eriksson from the taxi squad and replaced him with Justin Bailey, the opposite of a move they made just yesterday. Though it may seem counterintuitive, keeping Eriksson on the active roster and Bailey on the taxi squad during off days actually saves the Canucks money. The team is already in LTIR relief meaning they can’t bank cap space and have to pay Eriksson his one-way NHL salary regardless of where he plays. Bailey on the other hand earns less on his two-way deal whenever he is assigned to the taxi squad or minor leagues.

Ah, right.
Turns out this saves some "real" money (not cap money).  It's a paper down move for non-gameday to save cash since on the taxi squad, Justin Bailey makes his AHL salary. Don't be surprised to see the reverse tomorrow.
