How does it handicap the canucks? They can still give a 1st+3rd RFA offer if they like.
They can still make nearly $17+ mil in UFA offers and be under the cap...without even touching the 10% allowance.
It was a simple move that could have paid of. A team with tight budget targetted and if Strickland is correct a team that will end up having to move salary to keep its budget.
