Ya, that's a good point. I haven't mapped it out on capgeek. I've forgotten Raymonds $2.3M and Malhotras $2.5M will be off the books, likely. Canucks also have a number of young guys who will be pushing for roster spots next yr (Connauton, Jensen, Schroeder, Lack - perhaps Corrado). Plus, whatever ELC they get in a goalie trade. They might be fine. I've always thought the cap would be around $63-64M next season, $65M tops. It seems to be heading that way.
Sidenote, Gary Valk said last night he heard a rumor Eddie Lack might need surgery on his hip now. He hasn't played since Nov.
