I can only see Columbus, Tampa, New Jersey needing a young tender like Schneider unless someone wants to shake things up.
Dollarwise, the Canucks can swing it. Ballard and Raymond together more than offset Perry's cap hit.
I can see it not making cap sense from a 'balance' point of view in that the Canucks would have four forwards making over $5M while simultaneously weakening the back end, thinner in net and defence. It would be interesting to try to win with sheer firepower but "defence wins championships" is not said for nothing.
I suppose it might make sense if someone was getting flipped over to Nashville for one of their big-gun d-men...
