If the Canucks get Ohlund for 2.75 and Cooke for 1.25 (fairly conservative but still possibly low) they still have 2.5 of cap space (23 man roster). Drop a minimum wage of 450K allocated to a #5 d-man and add Witt (1.672M). That leaves us with 1.3M of cap space which is enough to go to the deadline with (can add 6 mill in salary at the deadline).
