Either way time works against the franchise.
Okay, we've stated our price. If you don't want to pay it(although "it" varies among Canucks fans) then we'll keep him. If we get an opportunity to snag Cory Perry at free agency and need cap space, we'll let you know(assuming Ballard, Raymond, Malhotra don't go first)
