Because he might want to get paid more than the Canucks can spend. Like you said, there are options out there. He just might price himself out by comparison. There's the other side of it too, where you could spend 2m~ for a dman coming off a down year, perhaps someone like Brewer. Still, it's early enough that anything can happen.
